The Liebster Award (again. . . again)

Hi there,
So I know I’ve done this twice already but I was nominated again by Salha Abuhayer over at The Journey’s of a girl. Her blog is amazing and she talks about a really cool range of things including her own travel experiences. So if you haven’t seen my last two posts about this go and check those out to find out the rules. Okay so the questions to be answered are:

1) What is your ambition in life?
My ambition in life is to travel as much as I possibly can, to see as much of the world as is possible, and to write a book. I really want to be a writer and I really want to travel and those are my ambitions in my life.

2) If you could have any superpower, what one would it be?
I thought long and hard about this question actually and I came up with the perfect answer. I would have the superpower to manipulate probability. Imagine that! Whats the probability I have a million dollars? Up to 100% please! Whats the probability I achieve all my goals in life? Up to 100% please! It would be the best power and I could have anything I wanted.

3) What was the last book you read and what where your thoughts on it? 
The last book I read was All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven and I really enjoyed it. It reminded me somewhat of I’ll Give you the Sun and it was just so beautiful and poetic. I felt a real connection with the characters in the book and it’s become one of my favourite stand-alone’s.

4) Do you have any pets? If yes, post a picture of them (optional).
I do have pets. I have a cat named Princess and she is the love of my life. I don’t have any pictures of her right here though, sorry. I also have five goldfish. Their names are: Colin, Rosie, Frank, Alfie and the Flash. Pretty strange names for fish but I love them.

5) Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?
I don’t actually like any of them. . .

6) What’s your favourite season? Why?
Summer. Heat. Sun.

7) Your favourite quote?
I have a lot but right now one of my favourites is “no one can make you feel inferior without your consent” but I don’t actually remember where I heard it.

8) If you had to only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
I’d have a big fat slice of chocolate cake. That would be it, I love a big of cake.

9) Which book(s) have had an impact on your life? Was it positive or negative?
Loads of books have had an impact on my life and all where positive.
Harry Potter: really got me into reading
Divergent: made me see the bravery in myself
The Storyteller: made me see the Holocaust in a really real light
The Mortal Instruments: brought me closer to my friends
All I know Now: gave my hope and inspiration
Nineteen Minutes: made me see killers in a whole new light
Thirteen Reasons Why: made me see suicide in a whole new way
Leaving Time: made me think about death differently.
Heroes of Olympus: brought back my childhood at a time when I really needed it.

10) A book you would recommend?
I have a lot of books I would recommend. Check out my post on recommendations and my monthly wrap-ups to see.

Alright so I won’t nominate anyone because the people I nominated before are the people I would nominate again. So thanks again to Salha for the nomination and I’ll see you all later in the week for my first post for my new segment.

Signing off, Verity

The Liebster Award (again)

Hi there,
So I was nominated for the Liebster Award just a little while ago but I’ve actually been nominated again by the amazing fangirlsforthewin. She has an incredible blog that you all have to go and look at. Her posts are new and inventive and we have very similar taste so if you like my blog, you’ll like hers. I’ve decided that I will just answer the questions for this one but I won’t pass it on because I already did. If you want to see the original post you can find it here: The Snazzy Original

1) Who is your ultimate favourite fictional character?
I have so many that this is just impossible! For the sake of this I will pick one of the many and I will pick Akiva from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy because I recently read the second book and he is fresh in my mind.

2) if you could be anyone in the entire world, who would you be – or would you stay the same?
I would either be one of the Disney Princesses at Disney World in Florida or Emma Watson.

3) You’re planning your annual birthday slumber party (Boys and Girls) which 5 fictional characters do you invite?
Hermione Granger because she is one of the first fictional characters I really loved and she would be a lot of fun.
Dean Winchester because I love him and we are definitely dating *cough*
Zuzana from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy because she is so bubbly and a lot of fun.
Tris Prior because she is the character that would be my best friend in the fictional worlds.
Jace Herondale because he puts the fab in fabulous.

4) What is your dream superpower?
Definitely to either fly or to have control over the fire element. I think that would be really amazing.

5) who do you ship more- romione or ginny/harry?
Definitely Romione. They are the first ship that sailed in my sea and will continue to be a permanent member.

6) Who is your favourite band/artist/singer?
Ether Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, McBusted or Fall Out Boy, I love them all.

7) the world is running out of resources and you have to eat one meal for the rest of your life – what is it?
A big fat slice of chocolate cake, with the strawberries on the top and everything.

8) who, out of celebrities would you- kiss, marry, kill?
I would marry Jensen Ackles, hands down.
Kiss Zac Efron because who in their right mind wouldn’t?
Then I would kill Chris Brown because he hit Rhianna and that is not okay.

9) what would be your dream house – cottage in the country, mansion in hollywood or penthouse in the city?
It would be a big two story house that was made of those wooden slats and they would be blue. The roof would be red and the top story would have a big balcony that went all the way around the house.

10) If you could invent anything, what would it be?
Ahh this is so hard! Probably a type of ink or paper that glows in the dark so that I could read in the dark.

11) last question, if you could be a werewolf, vampire or a wizard/witch what would you be?
Definitely witch. I would not want to drink peoples blood or become a dog. Also magic.

Alright so that is it for my second go at this. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave your answers in the comments.

The Liebster Award

Hi there,
I was nominated recently for the Liebster Award, a chain award that helps to promote more unknown blogs and helps to make new friends in the blogging community. I was nominated by the amazing reinreads, if you haven’t seen her blog already go and check it out because it is amazing. Thanks so much for the nomination!

Alright so the rules are as follows:
1) Thank and link the person who nominated you
2) Answer the questions given by the nominator
3) Nominate 11 other bloggers with 200 followers or less and link them
4) Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer
5) Notify all nominees via social media/blog

My eleven questions:
What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
I would have to go with A Summer in Genova, it had Colin Firth in it so I expected it to be fabulous but it was really boring and just completely depressing from beginning to end. It literally had no happy parts at all.

2) What artists or bands do you currently love?
Well right now I am absolutely in love with Fall Out Boy because of their incredible new album. The Kids Aren’t Alright is my favourite song, it makes me really pumped to do stuff. I also love Taylor Swift (because she is amazing) and Ed Sheeran, as does the rest of the world.

3) What’s your favourite childhood memory?
When we went to my grandparents house me and my sisters would always have pretend fairs in the back garden and we’d mix drinks and “sell” them to the people in the house.

4) Favourite book (you can choose more than one)
Alright I could honestly write a list 50 pages long but because I don’t have the time I will only pick a select few. Harry Potter (completely changed my life), The Mortal Instruments, Anna and the French Kiss trilogy, Gone Girl, Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

5) Favourite Quotes?
“A fire that burns that bright is not supposed to last” -Tobias Eaten, Allegiant.
“Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light” -Albus Dumbledore, Prisoner of Azkaban.
“The marks humans leave are too often scars” -Augustus Waters (I think), The Fault in Our Stars

6) It’s the end of the world! The only people left are you, the main actor/actress from the last movie you watched, your least favorite book character, & your favorite dead artist (writer, musician, what have you). Will you guys be okay?
Alright so in my “team” I have David from the film Project Almanac, Professor Umbridge (ugh) and Elvis Presley. We’ll be okay because David has a time machine and no one can get near Elvis’ swinging hips.

7) Puppy sized elephant or elephant sized puppy?
Puppy sized Elephant! Imagine how cute that would be!

8) Pick one: a boat, a castle, a cottage, or a rocket. Make up a reason why.
A boat because through the seas I can see the world.

9) Do you ship any characters? Or hate a ship?
I ship Romione, Percabeth, Karou/Akiva, Augustus/Hazel, Anna/Etienne, Fourtris, Clace, Sizzy, Malec and Anna/Cas. I hate Snamione; it is just gross.

10) If money was of no concern, what would be the next thing you buy?
A holiday to Disney World Florida. I miss it so much!

11) What’s the nicest thing anybody has ever done for you?
I don’t have a particular nice thing that stood out to me as the absolute nicest. I just really appreciate all the small nice things that people do for me.

My nominations:
The Perks of Being a Bibliophile
The Wanderlust Reader
Talk Nerdy to Me
Big City Bibliophile
