Liebster Award Nomination


So I’m finally getting around to a nomination I received last year. I was nominated by Lauren from the My Expanding Bookshelf blog, so a big shout out to her for nominating me. 🙂

The Liebster award is a chain award that was created by bloggers and is a tradition to make new friends in the blogging community.


  1. Link back to the person who nominated you
  2. Give 11 random facts about yourself
  3. Answer 11 questions from your nominator
  4. Nominate 11 new and obscure bloggers
  5. Come up with 11 questions for them to answer
  6. Inform your nominees

Eleven random facts about me: 

  1. I’m currently house hunting with my husband.
  2. I’m surprised I actually blogged the whole year.
  3. I like wearing tank tops under most of my shirts.
  4. I love playing Skyrim on Xbox 360.
  5. I am an avid crocheter and love Pinterest.
  6. I am a terrible gardener.
  7. I am very forgetful.
  8. I like to listen to classics on audiobook on my way to work.
  9. I have chronic back issues.
  10. I have a Masters degree in Education.
  11. I wish I could actually keep a journal. I try but I always forget or think I have nothing to write about.

Here are my answers to her questions:

  1. What was your favorite class in school? My favorite classes were Art and World Cultures.
  2. What is your favorite movie quote? From Down Periscope – “And who’s our next contestant?” I’m sure I have a better one, but I use this one all the time and it’s the only one I remember at the moment.
  3. If you were Prime Minister/President, what would be the first law that you would want to pass? I have never really thought about this, but I would definitely do something related to literacy, language, or taxes.
  4. Have you ever been given a detention? What for? I was given detention once, in 3rd grade, because the teacher thought I had stolen a book. She later found it in the room because it had been misplaced.
  5. Sweet or Savory? Depends – I’m totally a chocoholic but I love savory foods.
  6. Who is your favorite character from childhood? I loved The Black Stallion series, particularly the Island Stallion books in the series. I also loved Charlotte Doyle from The Confessions of Charlotte Doyle.
  7. Are there any books that you are inspired by? Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom – I should actually read that again, it’s been a while.
  8. Do you have any middle names? My middle name is Lynn.
  9. What is your favorite book cover? The Mountain’s Call by Caitlin Brennan and Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier are the only ones I can remember. Honestly, I don’t really pay attention to covers except for when I’m initially buying the book. After that I rarely notice it.
  10. What TV shows can you recommend to someone who really needs to find a new show to obsess over (me)? I love the Big Bang Theory and Hogan’s Heroes, but Castle is also good. I like Project Runway as well.
  11. What is your favorite social network site to share your blog posts, and why? I use Twitter. I don’t know why, but I like to keep my Book Mouse persona separate from my real world me and my Facebook.

My 11 questions to my nominees: 

  1. What is your favorite genre?
  2. What are your top five favorite books?
