Thank you so, so much to Alex @ Whimsy Pages for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Go check her blog out! It’s great!
I’ve never done this award before and I’m super excited to answer the questions as I love doing these types of tags.
(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 am reducing the number of nominees / questions to 5.
(1) How many books do you own and how do you organise them?
Okay, so I actually counted and I found that I own 187 books! (106 if you exclude e-books). I thought that I had way less than that because I clear out books that I’ve read and don’t want anymore regularly.
On the level of my bookshelf that’s most visible I put all of my favourite books so I can see them whenever I walk past. I tried to organise it in a gradient from bluey purple colours to orangey red colours. It’s not perfect but I like it. Also paperback books have to be separate from hardcovers.
(2) Do you have a blogging schedule?
Yes, I do. I try to plan out everything that I want to post in advance. However, it’s a very flexible schedule and lately I’ve been really busy and I haven’t been able to stick to it as much I’d like to.
(3) Share the favourite post written by you!
My favourite post was the one that I wrote on Valentine’s day about roses and slavery. I think it’s important that more people are aware of the extent of modern slavery in our world today as it’s a very serious issue. How many broken hearts were behind last Valentine’s day?

(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?
I’d choose e-books because as much as I adore physical books, e-books are more practical and portable- they’re also cheaper.
(5) Did your book tastes change? Tell us about your reading journey!
I’ve always adored fantasy since a young age. Anything magical has always fascinated me. I think the only thing that has changed is that my reading tastes have matured.
(1) How do you choose which books to read?
(2) Which three book characters do you wish were real? Why?
(3) Which themes or tropes do you dislike in a book? Why?
(4) Who are your top three favourite authors? Why?
(5) What do you think is more important in a book, well-developed characters or a gripping plot?
If I haven’t nominated you but you still want to answer the questions then feel free!
