Awards and such...

Sidne at Reading Rendezvous Reviewz has tagged me for the Liebster Blog award. You're tagged if you have under 200 followers and do a good job blogging. Those who are tagged then share 11 random facts about themselves, answer 11 questions posted by the person that tagged them, and then create their own set of 11 questions for others to answer. 

Why eleven? This is a lot of work.
I feel a strange way about this, but I'll participate... 

First, eleven random facts about me:
1) My favorite color is orange.
2) I have a Miniature Pinscher named Roxy (a very cute terror).
3) I was born in Germany.
4) Forrest Gump is one of my all-time favorite movies. 
5) I NEED to see the Mars Volta live. 
6) I'm approximately 69 inches tall.
7) Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is catnip for me.
8) I want to learn Portuguese and French.
9) I think Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is a boss.
10) International Relations intrigue the hell out of me.
11) I like apple martinis

Now, the 11 questions I have to answer:
Romance or Historical? Historical.
Dystopian or Mystery? Mystery.
Christian or Sci-fi? Sci-fi.
Chick Lit or Thriller? Thriller.
Poetry or Memoir? Poetry.
Short Stories or YA? Short Stories.
Historical Romance or Paranormal? Neither.
Spiritual or Fantasy? Fantasy.
Cookbook or Health & Fitness? Cookbook.
Erotic or Street lit? Anything but Street lit!

Q's I'm asking:
1) You're going to be stranded on an island. You can only bring three books. Which three?
2) One book you wish you had written.
3) Do you speak more than one language?
4) Which one is the better actor: Matt Damon or Mark Wahlberg? 
5) What are you listening to?
6) What is the worst book you've ever read?
7) Do you have a doppleganger?
8) SVU or Criminal Intent?
9) Three authors that 'get' you or you really love
10) Do you have any other hobbies?
11) Are you okay with reviews containing spoilers? 

I never realized what a lazy member of the book blogging community I am. I don't know 11 blogs with under 200 followers. Anyways, I'm tagging:

Chris @ In A Bookshelf
Denee @ Novel Reveries
Rowen @ My Little Library
Neal @ English Major Versus the World
Amy @ Book Musings
Grace @ For Those Who Live to Read
LibraryBaby @ So Many Books, So Little Time...
V @ Bookborne

Eight is almost eleven, right?



  1. Hmmm.. I'd pick memoir over poetry every time.

      The Mars Volta is one of my favorite musical ensembles.

    2. The Mars Volta is awesome and strange. Thanks for following my blog!
