Hungover Fiction Lover Liebster Award

A few days ago, I woke up to some wonderful news. Hungover Fiction Lover was nominated for a Liebster Award thanks to the lovely Lacey from Daily Dose of Lacey! I cannot describe how grateful I am for this nomination and for my amazing followers/anyone that stops by the blog! Thank you so much Lacey!

Since I was nominated, I now get to nominate 11 other blogs that I enjoy reading! With my nomination came 11 questions for me to answer so sit back, relax, and read on.

Here are the rules:
  • You must answer all questions that are given to you
  • Must link back to the person that nominated you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers
  • Provide nominees with 11 questions of your choice
  • Cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • Must inform nominees of your nomination
  • Provide nominees with a link to your post for more info

Here are my answers to Lacey's questions:

1. What is your favorite topic to write about in your blog?
I enjoy writing book reviews, but I like when I can take time to write posts based off of features, whether it be my own or ones from a different blog. I especially like the idea of Monday Musings, Top Ten Tuesday, and Waiting on Wednesday but I've only just started participating in Top Ten Tuesdays!

2. What is the best book you have read recently?
A Sudden Light by Garth Stein

3. What time of day is easiest for you to blog?
In the evening or later at night. I usually read and write in the morning.

4. What is your favorite social media site?
Other than Blogger, Instagram and Twitter. I have a soft spot for Instagram since that's where most of my bookish internet friends originated.

5. What motivates you to write your blog on a regular basis?
I love writing. I also love reading. When I put both together, I discovered the wonderful world of book blogging and decided I wanted to start my own blog. In doing so, I understood that there would be a commitment to writing for said blog but I don't mind because I love putting my thoughts to written word. Also, I enjoy reviewing and participating in other fun features/memes. I can't help but write for my blog regularly because it's my passion.

6. Who is your idol?
My grandparents because I grew up with them and they gave me the world. My mother because she brought me into this world and she works hard to provide for me. My stepdad because he is like my second father figure next to my grandfather. One of my high school English teachers, as he was the one to encourage me to pursue a career that involves writing. Veronica Roth because hello, she's a talented author who wrote my favorite books of ever. J.K. Rowling is a given. Lana Del Rey because she shys away from societal norms. Joseph Gordon-Levitt because he's an amazing actor with a heart of gold. The list goes on my friends.

7. What is/was your favorite subject in school?
English. It has been and always will be.

8. Why did you decide to start your blog?
What's better than combining reading and writing with the support of other book lovers and blog aficionados? Am I right?

9. Favorite time of year?
I used to answer this question with summer but I think I prefer fall and winter. I like fall because it's the start of when loose yet cute clothes are more acceptable as opposed to short shorts. Honestly, I'm saying winter as well because I can't wait to play in the snow and drink hot cocoa.

10. How do you overcome writers block?
I make myself sit down and write. There are times where it may be awful, but others where I write usable material. Time and time again, this is the best and most frustrating piece of advice I've ever received from teachers, fellow writers, family, and even good old Yahoo answers.

11. How much time do you spend on your blog?
Too much time or not enough time. I'm not quite sure which one. Most days I spend about an hour on my blog. Other days I spend maybe three hours total.

In no particular order, here are my nominees!
  1. Bianca at A Bookish Bee 
  2. Chloe at Epitome of Words 
  3. Amelia at Wonder Reads
  4. Maria Elena at Mel
  5. Eli Madison at RealityLapse

  2. How did you choose the name of your blog?

  5. What do you think makes someone brave?
  6. If you could move anywhere in the world on a whim, where would you go and why?
  7. What is your favorite movie of all time?
  8. If you had one vital piece of advice to give to someone else, what would it be?
  9. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

  1. Thank you for the nomination. I've edited my post to include your questions too. It's so cool to have been nominated, but you nominating me to give me two in one day made my night! :)

    Thank you!! :D

  2. thank you for nominating me! i love all the questions you've asked, although i was nominated some time last year for this award (i think anyway) i will definitely be doing it again so thank you! :D

  3. Thank you for nominating me!!! However, I haven't enough followers to do it, so I will try to do it in the future! (If I am not forget it)

    I also write in the evening or later at night and I love fall and winter as well!! ♥

  4. I really love writing book reviews as well. It's kinda interesting to me because a lot of bloggers say they much prefer writing discussions and other fun posts over reviews but with me, it's the total opposite! I actually find discussion posts really hard to come about.

    Again thanks for nominating me! I've already been nominated but it's still nice to see this! :)

  5. Thank you so much for the nomination! This are great questions, and I think it will be very fun to answer them. I'll let you know when my post is up.

    1. Hey Ashley, my post went up today! Thank you again for nominating me.
