Liebster Award #2

LiebsterAward_3lilappledsA while ago, I got nominated for a Liebster Award, and now I’m nominated again! The Liebster Award is a neverending sort of β€˜tag’ (like you see on Tumblr sometimes) for upcoming and/or small blogs. When you get nominated, you answer eleven questions, think of eleven questions yourself and nominate eleven people. This time I was nominated by Mariska from Down the Rabbit Hole.

1. What is your favourite book? Any recommendations?
Ehm, well I’m really bad at picking just one favourite book, so I’m gonna go with the first five that come into my mind: Harry Potter (all of them), Lord of the Rings, The Book Thief, The 5th Wave, The Hunger Games. Out of those, I definitely recommend all of them, haha! But especially The Book Thief because it is just such an amazing story, and it’s so beautifully written!

2. What kind of music to you listen to?
I listen to all kinds of music actually. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of soundtracks, from Frozen, the Hobbit, Doctor Who, etc. And I have this small playlist of ‘normal’ songs that I listen to, I don’t really listen to any other songs outside that playlist.

3. If you were on a desert island, and you could only bring one thing, what would you bring?
A phone! Haha, no, ehm, I’d probably just bring something to build a boat with! πŸ˜›

4. Same question as nr. 3, but this time with books. Which book would you bring?
The Lord of the Rings, because it’s quite a big book and I’d be busy with it for a couple of weeks at least!

5. Which book would you give a one-way ticket to the bin?
The Mortal Instruments, the entire series. I read the first two books and DNF-ed the third, and I am definitely not planning on reading the rest of the series. I really did not like any of it, and I thought it was a waste of my precious reading time.


6. What is the best movie you’ve ever seen?
Catching Fire, at the moment. I just thought it was brilliantly made, true to the book and it had an amazing cast and crew. I can’t wait to see Mockingjay part one and two!

7. If you could be a character from a book/movie, who would you be?
I’d probably just be a random Slytherin witch from the Harry Potter series. I don’t really want to be an ‘important’ character or anything, I just want to be part of that world… *sings*

8. Writing or reading?
I like both, but I’d rather be reading than writing. Even when I’m writing I spend most of my time reading what I’ve written and then completely rewriting that part. I’m a horrible writer, haha.

9. Borrowing books or buying books?
Buying, definitely. I don’t even own a library card, and I am too scared to borrow books from other people. Even though my shelves are filled and I am not allowed to buy any more books until after April, I prefer buying them over borrowing them (because then you have to give it back!)

10. What would you do with one million?
Buy more books, I guess? Haha, and I’d go to New Zealand, to visit Hobbiton and just enjoy the beauty of that country. Then I’d probably go to Orlando in Florida to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and buy lots of souvenirs. Then when I’m back in my own country, I’d probably spend the rest on books and popcorn.

11. What’s your favourite snack?
Popcorn, and cookies, I loooooooooooooove cookies!

Okay, I am not going to make up any questions or nominate people this time, because I completely forgot about it last time, and I honestly don’t know who I could nominate, so yeah, sorry.. ^^’
