Liebster Blog Award

I have been nominated for a 2013 Liebster Award. Twice. What a nice surprise! A big thank you to Tammy's Tea Time and Books and their Wordly Realm for nominating me! 

The rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:

1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog and link back to the blogger who presented this award to you;

2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees;

3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen. (No tag backs)

4. Copy and Paste the blog award on your blog.

Questions from Tammy's Tea Time:

1. Who is your favorite fairy tale character? Rapunzel
2. What is your favorite book genre? Depends on what I'm reading, but I'll say romantic suspense because it combines two of my favorite things. Add sci-fi or paranormal and it's even better.
3. If you could pick to be a character in a book who would you be and why? Book characters have too many problems. :) Ok, so I can't choose.
4. Do you have a favorite author? No! Too many great authors for me to choose one.
5. Where did the inspiration to start your blog come from? It was a combination of things. Husband said, "You read enough books, why don't you start a blog?" And it was when I was starting to write reviews because I realized how important they are to authors. Also, for a while I was having trouble finding things to read so I wanted to be able to recommend good books to other readers.
6. Who is your book crush? Depends on what I'm reading. :)
7. How many books have you already read this year? 14
8. What is your favorite ice cream? cookie dough
9. If you had to give up chocolate what would you replace it with? More coffee.
10. What book made you laugh? Most recently Cadaver Blues by J.E. Fishman.
11. Where would you go if you could go anywhere? (Real or Fantasy) Anywhere warm would be wonderful right now.
