The Book Fangirling Award | LibroLiv

Hello, Everyone!

Yesterday I was nominated by the lovely Codie for the Book Fangirling Award. Thanks again, Codie!

Before reading this post, you should all make sure you check out the blog Reader’s Anonymous (Codie’s blog), as it is one of my favourites, and truly enjoyable to read.

Now, let’s get on with the award!


 

⋘The Rules⋙

  1. Create a post to accept your award.
  2. Add the blog award button into your post and put it on the side of your blog as a widget. Visit fangirling for the award button.
  3. Answer the questions I have below.
  4. Nominate between 5-10 book bloggers who you think also deserve this award.
  5. Come up with your own 5 questions for your nominees.

⋘Codie’s Questions

1. LEAST favorite book read in 2015?

17331518

Ew ew ew ew ew! I hated the character of Adam already, so I was apprehensive going into this novella dedicated solely to him, and now I know I should have just avoided it completely. This novella infuriated me with hatred for ‘Addie’ that it made my blood boil and my toes curl. Gross.

2. Being a book addict, are there any new releases you’re excited about?

25063781

Yes! In fact, I have a whole post about 2016 releases which you can read here. However, after recently finishing My True Love Gave To Me, I have found myself all the more excited for the release of Summer Days and Summer Nights.

3. I know you have a lot, but who’s your favorite character of 2015?

7171637

It’s crazy to think I read this book this year. It seems so long ago that I fell in love with William Herondale, and I haven’t looked back since. (In case you’re wondering, I read this in February.)

4. A genre that you enjoy, yet don’t read enough of?

893136

I really enjoyed The Book Thief, and The Infernal Devices, and I love the idea of historical fiction, but I can never find it! I would definitely love to read more of this genre.

5. We all have them, so what’s your LEAST favourite genre, and why?

This is really difficult for me, as genres are so broad. I could say I dislike fantasy – because I’m not fussed by dragons or fairies – yet 2 of my favourite series (The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices) are fantasy series.

I could say I dislike sci-fi, because I find the prospect of aliens stupid and the logistics of space travel to be confusing, yet I loved the only sci-fi books I’ve ever read (Cinder and The Host).

Instead, I am going to say that I dislike the cookbook genre – whenever I follow their recipes, both I and the food come out worse for wear…I am honestly a terrible cook – it’s not fair!

  2. First, great answers! Second, thanks so much for tagging me <3! My drafts are close to overflowing, so I'll quickly answer your questions here:
    Tell me about the last book you finished. (The title, whether it’s good etc.)
    Reborn City by my friend Rami Ungar. I didn't want to read it, the genre isn't really my thing and the cover completely turned me off … however, in the end it wasn't bad, but I think other people could appreciate it more than me.
    Which character do you wish were real?
    Jem Carstairs from the Infernal Devices 🙂
    How many books have you read in 2015? Are you happy with that number?
    My current tally is 51, but I think I can fit in one or two more books. I am happy with that, even though I read more last year (but Goodreads only started counting in April)
    Which book do you think everyone should read at some point in their life?
    You've mentioned the Book Thief above and I think that can really teach people a lot.
    Which fictional world is your favourite?
    Hmmm … probably Wonderland 🙂
