Liebster Award: Round 2

becomingness-liebster-award

Thanks to Keely at ireaditandwept for my second Liebster Award nomination! A lot has happened since my first nomination back in April, so I’m going to give it another go. The rules for Liebster Award nominations are pretty simple: 1) Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you; 2) List 11 facts about yourself; and 3) nominate some fellow bloggers with 200 followers or less. This is a great way to discover new bloggers and make connections in the blogging world, so I hope you’re all encouraged to participate if you get nominated!

11 Questions from Keely

1. What was the first book you ever read?
I remember reading a lot of classic children’s books when I was first learning to read (like The Giving Tree, for example), but the first books I really remember enjoying were those in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. 

2. Who was your favorite school teacher?
It’s a tie between my 7th grade health teacher and my 11th grade English teacher, mainly because their love for teaching and their students was so evident every day.

3. Have you ever had a book hangover? (i.e. unable to read anything or pretty much focus on life because of a book)
Yes. This pretty much happens every time I finish one of the books in the Outlander series.

4. What did you want to be when you grew up (as a kid)?
Veterinarian!

5. If you had a million dollars what would be one of the first things you spent it on?
Land…then a house to build on that land…then books to fill the house with, of course!

6. Say you had a fire and you could only choose to save one book off your shelf, which would you pick, and why?
Probably a book from my set of Jane Austen novels by Juniper Books, because it’s one of my favorite gifts that my fiancé has ever given me.

7. Are you a cat or a dog person?
Dog! I have two cocker spaniels.

8. What book are you currently reading?
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I’m loving it so far!

9. If you could pick any book to describe your life which would you choose?
This is hard! I can’t pinpoint any one book that really represents my life because I mostly read historical fiction, which doesn’t always translate to modern life. So, I’m copping out of this question.

10. Many authors write under a pen name, if you had one what would your name be?
Eliza King.

11. What is your favorite quote, preferably from a book?
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies…The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R. R. Martin
