This is actually my first time doing The Liebster Award (the trend of 2019 being the year of “first(s)” continues). I love reading Tags, I think they are a great tool to get to know each other better, but for some reason I never do them. It’s about time to join in on the fun!
Thank you, Jenna @Bookmark Your Thoughts for the nomination! I’ve been following closely Jenna’s blog, and just having a blast reading her posts. (especially the book reviews! I think I’m in love with the way she structures her posts!)
1 – Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.
2 – Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you.
3 – Nominate 11 blogs.
4- Notify those blogs of the nomination.
5 – Give them 11 questions to answer.
P.S. I actually prefer the idea of reducing the number of nominees / questions to 5.
1 – IS THERE A TOPIC YOU LOVE BUT DON’T LOVE TO WRITE ABOUT?
I don’t really like making TBR posts, that’s why I switched to monthly goals, as I find TBRs to be very restricting. But I love watching and reading other’s TBR posts. It helps me find new books and just see what everyone is up to!
2 – WHICH FICTIONAL CHARACTER WOULD BE THE MOST BORING TO MEET IN REAL LIFE? WHY?
It was so easy to think of many annoying characters. But boring… I’ll choose Bernadette from Where’d you go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. Besides being annoying, I found her really boring as well, she only cared about herself and thought herself superior to others. We definitely wouldn’t be friends in real life!
Even the quote I chose to feature in my review fits this questions!
3 – WHAT IS THE BEST AND THE WORST PURCHASES YOU’VE EVER MADE?
The questions are getting harder and harder! 😃
Honestly, I don’t like spending money, unless it’s for books, then there is no way to stop me.
There is one object that I own that was worth it’s value based on frequency with which I use it – and that’s my Kindle Paperwhite. With NetGalley ARCs, I use it almost everyday, and can’t imagine my life without it.
4 – IF YOU HAD TO CHANGE YOUR NAME, WHAT WOULD YOU NEW NAME BE? AND WHY WOULD YOU CHOSE THAT NAME?
This is an interesting one! Especially because I’ve considered this a couple of times before. But not because I don’t like my name, I love it!
The problem is that in all documents my name actually starts with an O, Olexandra, because of some weird name transcriptions from one language to another. So if it wouldn’t be a huge headache to change the name, I would change it back to Alexandra, just how it’s supposed to be! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
5 – WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OF 2018?
Uff, finally an easy one! 2018 will forever be marked as the year I read «Eleanor is Completely Fine» by Gail Honeyman. I can’t stop talking about this book!
Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink ever weekend.
Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled existence. Except, sometimes, everything…
Gail Honeyman created such an amazing character. Now I’m constantly on a hunt for more similar books.
1 – How many books do you own and how do you organise them?
2 – Do you have a blogging schedule?
3 – Share the favourite post written by you!
4- If you had to choose only one book format (physical, e-book, audiobook) to read for the rest of your life. which one would you choose? Why?
5 – Did your book tastes change? Tell us about your reading journey!
