Liebster Award

I’m cheating here because I wasn’t nominated but I read the tag on Bookish Luna and thought it would be fun to do. Go check that post out and give me your answers to the questions in the comments. 🙂

1. What book/s can you not live without?

It’s probably the most common answer but… I don’t care. It’s the Harry Potter series. I have so many fond memories of it and it’s been a part of my life for so long.

2. Your first favorite book?

I wrote an entire and a completely different answer and had to delete it, cursing myself out. How could I’ve forgotten it?? My 1st favorite book was Beauty and the Beast. I need to get a new copy because I’ve lost the old one. Well didn’t lose it, my parents did in our move years ago. 🙂

3. Goodreads challenge/reading goal for this year?

It’s 24 books. 

4. Favorite series?

What do you think? 🙂

5. Do you read Fanfiction?

Never tried it.

6. Where is your favorite place to read?

On a beach.

7. Are you a fast or slow reader?

I guess a fast reader. If I like it, I’ll devour it.

8. Do you use bookmarks?

Yes. The strangest thing happened on Sunday. I sat down on the couch to read, I opened the book and set the bookmark aside. But since then I can’t find it anywhere. And I’ve checked everywhere! It’s bugging me.

9. What book do you recommend the most to others?

Anything by Colleen Hoover. I love her writing. Her last novel that I recommended to someone was Maybe Someday.

10. Where do you buy your books?

When we lived in Slovenia I ordered them online, but now that we are living in India, I still need to find a bookstore and so I’m mostly buying e-books. 

11. What book do you dislike that everyone seems to love?

I’m trying really hard to find the answer…but I can’t think of anything. Oh, wait. Last year I read Dear Jane by Kendall Ryan and it has a 3.77 score on Goodreads which I think is pretty good but I didn’t. Like. It. At. All.


What are your answers? Do we any in common?

  1. I don’t ‘do’ awards but for you I’ll try my best to answer the questions, particularly as I enjoyed so much reading yours.
    1. As I think you know I’m one of those in a million who doesn’t like HP, but I don’t like fantasies in general. I’d probably choose ‘Wuthering Heights’ or ‘A Christmas Carol’.
    2. Probably ‘Gulliver’s Tavels’, read first at 7 years old; later, ‘studying’ it for GCE ‘O’ level at 16, I came to hate it and still cannot read it.
    3. Don’t have one.
    4. Probably Inspector Morse (I like detective stories). I don’t need to answer your question ;-).
    5. No. Don’t even know what it is!
    6. In my ‘electric chair’.
    7. In one sense fast; if a book ‘grabs me’ I cannot put it down and read in one go, if necessary staying up all night. I think the last one to do that was ‘The English Patient’.
    8. Yes, but not a particular one. It’s most usually an old envelope, at the moment it’s a sheet of paper with a poem written by a friend.
    9. I don’t usually recommend anything but when I was teaching I told all my students tobread ‘The English Patient’.
    10. On line, mostly e-books now even though I prefer to read from paper so more often get from the library.
    11. Well of course it’s HP 😂😂😂!

    In common – only 5, 7 & 8.
    Enjoyed that.
