I got a Liebster Award!


My friend Ki Pha at Doing Some Reading just nominated me for the Liebster Award!

Liebster Award is a way to help blogs you like with less than 200 followers. It’s a way to give them some deserved attention so our followers can discover them as well.

The rules:

- Link back the blogger that tagged you;
- Nominate 5-10 others and answer the questions of the one who tagged you;
- Ask 10 questions for the bloggers you nominate;

- Let your nominees know of their award!!!
So it’s my turn to answer some questions:
1)What are you currently reading?
Oh, that’s hard to answer. I’m reading about 10 books concurrently right now, from Karen Hawkins’s How to Entice an Enchantress to several ARCs of Avon books. About half of them I’ve listed on my Goodreads shelf. :)
2)What genre do you mostly read?
Historical romance ever since July 2012. But I do indulge on some classics from time to time.
3)How long have you been blogging/reviewing books?
I created a blog back in 2012, but did not actively start blogging until September 15th, 2013. So I’m still new to blogging!
4)What are some of your favorite reads/authors?
Here are some of my favorite reads/authors (not in any particular order):
Sherry Thomas’s Ravishing the Heiress
Julie Anne Long’s What I Did For a Duke
Tessa Dare’s A Week to be Wicked
Connie Brockway’s The Bridal Season
 Eva Ibbotson’s The Countess Below Stairs
5)What would be the title of your life as a book? (it would be nice to give a short explanation) 
It’d probably be something like “A Soul Lost in the Universe.” I think about the meaning of life and existence a lot, and while I know the answer is something I must create, I still overthink my future on many nights. That’s why reading gives me a reprieve from my own busy brain!
6)Who do you always think of as the hero when you’re reading? (which celebrity is always your vision of the hero in a book while/during you’re reading)
I never have a celebrity in mind as I’m reading. It usually is some faceless (not in a scary way ^_^) hero with a handsome physique like those on romance novel covers. I seem to always have some shape in mind but never pinpoint his exact looks. But the mystery is better that way, for me.
7)Which book would you love or hate to be made into a film/show?
I’d love to have Samuel Richardson’s Pamela: Or, Virtue Rewarded made into a movie – in fact, it was made into a British movie in 1974, but I can’t find that movie anywhere! – with a Hollywood cast of actors. I’d probably end up hating the film, but it’ll nonetheless be nice to have a film for that book.
8)Where would you like to go? (into a certain series, an era, a certain book, a town, an author’s head…etc?)
I definitely would love to go to the Regency era and experience the haut ton at its best and worst. Go take morning tea with ladies, listen to gossip about fashion and Lord Who and Lady Who’s affairs…yum. J
9)What will this blog look like in years to come?
After a few years I might design my own template (this was bought) and have graphics on both sides of the site. But for now, I can’t even begin to imagine what the blog will look like in years to come.
10)Which book do you recommended as a must read?
Gah, I have so many books to recommend! But for starters, in the genre of historical romance, definitely Tessa Dare’s A Week to be Wicked. 

I don't actually know any new blogs and a few of the blogs I've asked assured me they'll probably just let this thread die (You know who you are >.<) but if any blog would like nominations along with my ten questions, do feel free to comment. :)


  1. Great answers! I found myself smiling throughout the whole Q&A reading. Maybe i should have asked more in depth questions? As in, have an interview with you... LOL But great job! :)

  2. This was really fun for me to answer. LOL If you ever want to interview me, just let me know and I'll do it in a heartbeat. :)
