The Liebster Award


Hello everyone! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been nominated for this award… I’m so sorry for only getting to it now! But it’s here and it’s (really) long and I hope you enjoy it 🙂


The wonderful bloggers/friends that nominated me are:

Michel @ Raistlin0903 – Michel writes very in-depth and gripping reviews of movies, TV shows, books and even board games! He has also been with me since the beginning of my blogging experience, always offering a kind compliment and commenting on/liking the majority of my posts, which I’m very grateful for!

Roisin @ Always in The Write – Roisin writes mostly about books but also has many cool tags, challenges and other articles that are equally interesting. She has specific days for specific posts, so you know just what to expect!  Go visit her blog and show her some love!

remyfool @ The Lily Garden – Remy has also always been very active in the community, including in my blog, which is awesome of him. I know I can always count on his posts for a good laugh and a nice rec! He writes reviews of manga, anime and visual novels, and his challenges and weekly features are definitely something to look forward to!

Ava @ Reads, Rhythms and Ruminations – Ava is also someone I know for a while now and I just love our interactions. She’s one of the sweetest people around! On her blog, she discusses books, anime and a lot of other cool stuff. One of my favorite features of hers is Character Wars, which is just so unique and entertaining!

Thank you all so much for considering me for this award! I really don’t know what else to say, other than I’m truly honored ❤

Thank the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they’ve written for you.

Nominate 11 people and give them 11 different questions to answer.



1. Flight or invisibility?

Invisibility. I’m just too scared of heights! Plus, have you thought of the possibilities?

2. Ice cream or chocolate?

Ha. Well. Not much to say here, is there? But to be perfectly honest, I much prefer ice cream in the summer and chocolate in the winter.

3. Would you rather live without your legs or without your hands?

Wow, hmm… This is quite the morbid question, Ava! I would have to go with my legs but I really don’t know what I would do without either.

4. Name a mythological creature you wish to have as your pet.

Oohh there are so many awesome ones! But since we’re considering pets I’d love to have a kitsune to cuddle with. Maybe a small dragon too, like Toothless!

5. World peace or immortality?

World peace! Vampires are cranky and narcissistic for a reason.

6. Heroes or anti-heroes?

Anti-heroes, for sure. So much more interesting!

7. Do you believe in aliens?

I’m pretty sure we can’t be the only humanoid life forms in the whole universe, so I’d say yes.

8. Tea or coffee?

Tea, although I adore coffee as well!

9. The genre that you like the most?

I wasn’t sure what you were referring to here… So for music genre: none, as I listen to mostly anything. Book genre: I would have to pick Fantasy. Movie genre: maybe comedy. Anime/manga genre: I guess I go for slice of life most of the time.

10. What is the weather like where you live?

I’d say pretty seasonally standard. Right now it’s super cold (which is not saying much because I’m just incredibly sensitive to temperature).

11. If you could travel through time,  but only once,  where would you go – the past or the future?

That’s a tough one… Hmm, maybe the future? I already know what happened in the past, after all.



1. When (if ever) you wear a dress shirt, do you ever tuck it into your pants / skirt?

Both, depending on my outfit.

2. What’s your favorite anime ED?

Naruto’s first one, performed by Akeboshi, because it always made me cry and it just stuck with me all these years.

3. What’s your favorite fruit?

Pomegranate, but it’s such a pain to deseed! Always makes my kitchen look like a crime scene, too. A close second would be watermelon.

4. Do you often skip breakfast?

Not often, but definitely have in the past.

5. Which fast-food joint do you avoid at all costs?

I don’t have a specific one. Lately I’ve just been avoiding fast-food altogether.

6. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation and time manipulation (even if that last one entails a lot of issues).

7. What’s your favorite band / music artist / music circle?

This is super hard for me because I discover a new one every week! I also listen to all kinds of music… it just depends on my mood. Sometimes I’m into indie, sometimes rock, sometimes metal, sometimes classical, sometimes super poppy tunes. I’m quite the musical mess.

8. If you could outlaw any holiday, which one would it be and why?

None, I think? Any excuse to take a break is a good one!

9. When was the last time you went trick-or-treating?

I don’t actually remember, but I was really young.

10. Quality or quantity?

I usually go for quality.

11. Would you rather be the funniest person in the room or the most intelligent?

I think the funniest because being the smartest is quite a lonely role. Funny people are much more well liked and friendlier and seem to be able to always look on the bright side of life. Plus, they’re the ones I usually feel most attracted to.



1. What music has stuck with you the most and (if it’s not too personal) why?

I don’t have a specific one, but listening to the oldies instantly makes me happy and nostalgic (but in a good way!) since that’s what I grew up listening to.

2. Do you have a favourite book or genre of books? If so, what is it?

Wuthering Heights has been my favorite book for forever. But my favorite genre is probably Fantasy.

3. What would you consider the coolest thing you’ve ever did?

Organizing events, making props… I’ve had my share of those. They were always super tiring but so worth it in the end.

4. What’s your favourite memory and why?

I have so many! Definitely unable to choose here.

5. Favourite smell?

This may sound weird but I really like the smell of puppies. They all smell so nice! I also like the smell of unlit cigarettes, or ideally, cigars in a wooden box. Again, I know it sounds weird. What else? Oh, licorice/star anise, coffee, apple and cinnamon, and vanilla.

6. How do you get yourself motivated?

I just keep repeating the same thing over and over in my head, until I either believe it or I do it. Both is great. There are certain songs that help me get motivated as well, and reading about/listening to inspirational speeches.

7. What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?

Weirdest… Hmm… I always forget most of my dreams. But just last week I had this dream where people were being killed in elevators and it all felt like this weird thriller type of thing. Don’t ask.

8. What do you see as your greatest achievement?

Not sure… I have a couple but I guess I have yet to find the greatest one!

9. What’s your biggest goal in life?

Be better at Q&A’s? Eek. In all seriousness, I don’t have a specific goal in store… I just aspire to be as happy and fulfilled as possible.

10. Do you consider yourself a perfectionist? Why/why not?

Yes, totally. I revise everything I do at least a hundred times before I’m half content with it! And I get so frustrated when I’m rushed or don’t have the time to do it just right.

11. What’s your favourite past time (blogging doesn’t count!)?

Writing stories, reading, watching movies/TV shows/anime, baking, traveling to new places, going for a walk, playing video games, singing, etc etc. I have too many hobbies and too little time!


  1. What is your favorite art movement? (Impressionism, surrealism…)
  2. What was the weirdest thing a stranger ever told you?
  3. Do you get motion sick while reading in the car/bus/train?
  4. The best advice someone has ever given you?
  5. What time of the day are you most productive?
  6. Would you rather be a villain or a hero in a story, and why?
  7. If you were a type of candy/snack, which one would you be?
  8. Pirates or ninjas, and why?
  9. What was your favorite thing to do when you were a kid?
  10. Favorite and least favorite tropes in literature/cinematography/etc?
  11. If you could change a single thing happening in the world right now, what would it be?


As always, no pressure to do this tag if you don’t want to, but it’s always nice to get an award, I think hahaha

Thank you so much for reading! ^_^ (I’m sorry this was so long)

Let me know your thoughts! ヽ( ⌒ω⌒)人(=^‥^= )ノ

  1. Awh, thank you so much for another one, Sophie. ❤ I truly appreciate it. I loved how you got asked ice cream or chocolate. XD But your answer is so true, though. Also, your little chocolate graphics throughout were so cute!! I absolutely loved your comment about being the musical mess. XD It got an lol out of me, but I don't think there is a better term out there. Loved your answers, and I can't wait to answer your questions, since they look like so much fun! 😀 Thanks so much again! ❤

    1. Sure thing, you deserve it! ❤ (And this is totally *not* about our evil genius authors talk, not at all)
      Thank you so much! I’m glad you liked them 😄 I wanted to do some experimenting with the blog’s layout.
      Everyone just finds my musical tastes super weird, because there’s no real pattern hahaha
      I’ll forward to your answers, I’m sure they’ll be delightful as well 😊❤


      1. LOL, why thank you. XD ❤
        No, it was super cute!
        And so true. I will like one song from one genre and then hate all the others. It's so weird, but as you said, musical mess just fits so well.
        Lol, why thank you! I shall hope. We will have to see how many involve Disney Princesses. XD


      2. Lol, thank you!! XD Well, I couldn’t make the woodland creatures love me, so I had to resort to using my Princess powers for blogging and rating. But thank you again for the kind words. ❤ I don't want to over Princess-ify people…although is that really a thing? We'll pretend it's a no. XD


        1. Hahahaha nooooo! Nothing against it but it was actually one of my least favorite Disney movies? xD
          Princess-wise I think it might be Mulan or Tangled. I also really liked The Little Mermaid.
          But my favorites are The Lion King and The Fox and the Hound. I cried every time I watched those (still do, actually)!


      3. Oh, goodness. I don’t know who that was then. XD But yeah, I’m not a big fan of that one either – which is super sad because books. XD
        Mulan and Tangled are the best as well ❤
        Ahhhhhh, it's been forever since I've seen The Fox and the Hound. I might have to rewatch since you mentioned it and loved it so much.

  2. Great answers!! Thank you for being so lovely 😍 don’t get the unlit cigarettes thing but concur on pomegranate/watermelon 😉 the world peace answer made me literally laugh out loud – and I’m in the office!


    1. Hahahahah oops sorry about that!! And thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed them ^^ No problem, you all but earned it 😉
      I don’t know why I like the scent of cigars either, since I hate even the slightest hint of someone smoking near me… But the nose wants what the nose wants hahaha

    1. Thank you so much! ❤ And, of course, you deserve all the shout outs in the world 😊
      I definitely am and although I may not read every single one of them when they are first posted, I’m always looking forward to them!
      Thank you once again for nominating me 😊


  4. Congratulatiins again on all these wonderful nominations: all of them are highly deserved. It was a lot of fun to read through all the answers (and funny to see that I myself completely forgot to put questions in my own post lol 😂😂). Pretty much was in the beginning of my blogging days, so I was not really up to speed back in those days 😊 Thank you for the kind words in your post: appreciate it a lot 😊


    1. Thank you! Hahahaha it’s fine, really, I only noticed later as well but I don’t think it’s incredibly mandatory. Plus, I already had tons of questions so don’t worry about it! I need to nominate you more often so you get the gist of it 😛
      No problem, it’s the truth after all! 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading more posts from you!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks so much! Well, one of them was yours so… Double thanks? 😛 And no problem, all the praise is absolutely well-deserved 🙂
      I’m glad you liked the banners! I thought it would help with sectioning and thought organization 🙂
      I always find these Q&A’s really fun to do but I definitely prefer reading everyone else’s hahaha
      I just rarely think about most of the things people ask so it’s a bit hard to come up with answers…
      Thank you once again for reading my posts! o(〃^▽^〃)o


      1. Well, double welcomes, then!
        Aw, shucks. Thank you so much!
        Mmm they looked and worked out great.
        Fair enough. It’s great that both sides is fun!
        Mmm I totally understand. Some of the questions are unexpected! Well, not like I’m one to talk…
        The pleasure is all mine!


  6. Congrats, and thank you for the nomination! I love anime so when I find a book blogger who also likes anime I’m always interested to see which ones they like 🙂 great post!

    1. Thank you so much, Jess! And no problem, you absolutely deserve it 😊
      Oh that’s so cool! I do love anime and manga, even if I haven’t had the time to watch/read a lot lately. I plan on having a lot more reviews and the sort on the blog soon.
      I’m glad you enjoyed this post and I look forward to reading your answers ^^

  7. Congrats on your award!! 😀 I’d definitely love to have a small dragon like Toothless, too! Anti-heroes are definitely the best (i.e. Deadpool). High five to loving Wuthering Heights. It’s definitely my favorite classic right next to Pride and Prejudice 😀 Teleportation and time manipulation are certainly some really cool superpowers that I’ve never considered. They’d be so cool to have, though, huh?? All those hobbies are definitely my favorite things to do, too! Especially writing, playing video games, and singing! 😀
    Congratulations again! ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Azia! I’m glad we share the love on all of those ❤ They just make me feel so warm and fuzzy inside hahaha
      I think people love the idea of superpowers but don't actually think about which ones would be truly useful or doable… Like, what would I do with flying? I'd probably faint before anything else LOL It's definitely a classic but not my thing. So yeah, teleportation and time manipulation all the way XD
      Yay to sharing hobbies! Hahaha ^^

      1. Ahahaha, that’s so true. I always just pictured myself flying over the oceans or flying away from people’s bullsh*t if I could fly LOL XD But yeah, other than that there’s not much else I could do with it. Time manipulation and teleportation are definitely great choices! You’re smarticles haha
