Liebster award?

2013 Liebster Award!! 

Bless Shelves of Books Blog for nominating me for an award, that's really sweet of them considering I have only started blogging for about 2 months :S

As you have probably guessed I love to read and particularly like to promote new authors with their releases. 
The Rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog and link back to the blogger who presented this award to you;
2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees;
3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen. (No tag backs)
4. Copy and Paste the blog award on your blog.

Questions From Shelves of Books Blog:

1). What was your favourite book of 2012?

Angelfall by Susan Ee

2). What book(s) are you most looking forward to in 2013?

Although the paperback version of Splintered has technically been released, I am really looking forward to the release of the Kindle version. I loved Alice in Wonderland and I have heard so much about this book I really cannot wait to read it.

Aside from that, I am awaiting the sequel to Angelfall and the next release for Patrick Rothfuss' Kingfisher Chronicles, although I don't know if that will be released this year :S
3). Who would be your ultimate book boyfriend?

Damon Salvatore from Vampire Diaries!

4). What made you want to start a blog?

I realised that writing reviews of books I had read really helped an author and it just escalated from there! I also joined an amazing group on facebook that promotes indie authors, and since then the blogs posts have continued.

5). What types of books do you love to read?

Paranormal fiction, a leeetle bit of paranormal romance, YA fiction and fantasy.

6). Cats or dogs?


7). What is your favourite TV series?


8). If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you have
and why?

My kindle as it has all my books on it. Although eventually I guess I would need some form of electricity to charge it up. When are they inventing solar charging kindles?!!
Chocolate because I need some sort of sustenance right?
A blanket because I get cold too quickly.

9). If you could meet any author who would it be and why?

Ideally it would have been Roald Dahl because he is such a different character, and sounds so interesting. Plus, he has written some of the most awesome books ever.
Unfortunately, that is not an option until there hereafter perhaps, so I would like to meet JK Rowling. I would like to persuade her to write a spin off on the HP series :P

10). What book do you think has the best book cover ever?

Ooh...I don't know, sorry I'll have to pass on that one :S
11). where is your favourite place to read?

Anywhere warm and cozy with a mug of hot chocolate will do!
