Thanks to Michelle at A HalfBlood Fangirl for nominating me for the Liebster Award!

- Let the blogs know you have nominated them.
- Give them 11 questions to answer
My 11 Questions to answer are:
1. What was the most disappointing ending to a book you’ve read? I’m going to go with The 100: Homecoming. I just wish more would have happened. Very anti-climatic.
2. Most overhyped book. I’m going with Go Set a Watchmen since everyone felt very deceived by what it really was.
3. Most underrated book. All Roads Lead to Murder: A Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger. This is the first in a series of historical fiction, mystery books set in Ancient Rome. I love them so much!
4. Who is your book boyfriend/girlfriend? Well I have way too many to count but some stand outs are Khalid from The Wrath and the Dawn, Nikolai Lantsov from the Grisha trilogy, and Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices.
5. You can possess one superpower. What is it? To be able to learn and speak different languages. That would be so cool!
6. Describe your ideal atmosphere when reading. Generally I can read pretty much anywhere but ideally I’d like to be cuddled up on the couch, under some blankets, with the cool autumn air coming in through the open door.
7. You can only keep three books on your shelf and have to discard the rest. Which ones do you choose? Nooooooooooo! If I have to answer I would say Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Night Circus, and Siege and Storm. That would probably change by the minute though.
8. Give your favorite book blogger or booktuber a shoutout. For blogger I’m going with Brittany’s Book Rambles and for booktuber, Sanne @ booksandquills
9. Who is your go to author? Go to authors would be J.K. Rowling, Leigh Bardugo, and John Green.
10. Ebook or Real copy? Most definitely real!
11. Favorite Classic? To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
