The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award

Hello everyone ! As you saw in the title, I'm going to do the Liebster Award ! I've been tagged by Em (Em's Book Corner) and Lauren (Always Me). I asked you on Twitter if I should combine the questions or divide them in two posts and you told me to combine them so there are going to be a lot of questions !

I put Em's questions in blue and Lauren's in... I don't know, pinkish ? If you're a color expert, tell me what that color is because I have no idea.

Anyway, let's get started !

1. Who is your fictional crush?

I'm going to be very original here : Rhysand. I loved him since ACOTAR,  literally since the first scene he was in. What I love the most about books is that when you like someone, you like them because of their personality and yeah, he's described as a very attractive man but I started to like him because of all that mystery around him and his sass.

I have another one... It's probably going to seem weird for you but I also love Breeze from the Mistborn trilogy. To be honest, I don't even know why. The first time he was introduced I knew I was going to like him. I find endearing the way he pretends to be worse than he is.

Okay, I'm weird, next !


2. Do you have any go-to comfort films you watch when you feel down or upset?

Nop when I feel down I watch TV Shows like New Girl or The Big Bang Theory. If I'm really upset I'll watch something more serious to keep my attention like Unreal or Sherlock.


3. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what book would you choose ?

That's hard ! I think I'd choose a very deep and meaningful book like A Monster Calls or The Picture of Dorian Gray. You get bored of funny books but deep and influential stories stay with you forever.


4. What's your favorite animal?

That's hard but I'm going to go with Pandas. Did you know that they actually are carnivorous but they eat bamboo because they're too lazy to hunt ?


5. What's your favourite reading snack and drink?

Maltesers ! I'm completely addicted to them. But now I'm on a diet so I won't eat them for a while, healthier's always better, right ? Hum.. I don't really have a special reading drink, I just drink my usual lemon water. I can't live without it, it's so good !


6. Has a book every made you cry?  If so, what was it ?

A lot of books made me cry so it's hard to pick one. I think I'm going to go with Stolen because I didn't expect to feel so emotional. I was fine during the entire book and then this moment happened and out of the blue I started crying. It wasn't even sad or anything but that's when I realized how invested I was in the story. Lucy Christopher is very talented !

If you're interested to know more books that made me cry, I have a whole shelf on Goodreads.


7. Describe your perfect day.

Hum... Going to a theme park with positive people who really want to have fun. Yes, it's simple but a day without drama, problems, worries and anything negative would be perfect for me.


8. What song is currently stuck in your head?  Or what was the last song to get stuck in your head if you're currently song free?

A youtuber called "Squeezie" (It's kind of a french PewDiePie) made a song with parts of his videos for fun but it has stuck in my head (and my brother's) for a week ! We sing it together at random moments of the day so people around us think we're crazy... *sigh*. Thanks a lot Squeezie. If you're up to a challenge, listen to it.  If it's not stuck in your head, consider yourself a warrior.


9. If you could be a fictional character for one day, who would you be and why?

 I would be Hannah from 13 Reasons Why and I would go talk to Clay hoping he'd be able to prevent her suicide. 

Otherwise I'd be Vin from the Mistborn trilogy. I would love to speak to the crew, I'm sure I'd get along with them.

10. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character and if so who was your first fictional crush?

Whoa, that's hard... Technically my first fictional crush is Legolas. I was a child and I was also in love of Will from Pirates of the Caribbean. I used to feel so bad because I felt like I was cheating on Legolas ! And then... I realized both of them were interpreted by the same actor and I felt immediately better.


11. Why do you read?

Because I love traveling through authors' minds, I guess. A book can mean so many different things to many people and that's amazing. And it's a great escape too !


12. What's your opinion on internet friends?  Are they as good as real life friends or are they not really real?

Of course they're as good as real friends ! Internet friends are special to me because we connected because of our passion and not because school or work brought us together. I feel closer to some of my internet friends than to my real friends. It's easier to open up online and it's weird but I feel safer somehow. I know online people won't have any interest in stabbing me in the back or betray me or whatever. Anyway, I love all of my friends !

13. Do you prefer to read books, listen to audiobooks or read eBooks?

I prefer reading eBooks. I might do a discussion about that.


14. Do you have any weird habits?

Where do I begin...

- I can do accents in the middle of a conversation for no reason.

- I eat a McFlurry everytime something bad happens The last time I did this it was 10am. Don't judge me.

- I don't know if it's a weird habit but I know people hate that : I air quote. I'm sorry but it's useful ! How am I supposed to insist on something without air quotes ? Afficher l'image d'origine

I think I'm going to stop there, I don't want to lose too many followers...


15. If you could live in a fictional world. where would you live?

Wonderland ! I'm The Mad Reader after all


16. When it comes to big stuff like politics, do you think you're up to date with everything or do you not really pay attention unless it's something really big? (No judging from me either way, politics can be disheartening.)

A year ago, I would have told you I don't care about that boring stuff. Now, with everything happening in France and the abusive stuff politician say against some minorities I can't ignore it. It's hard to follow every crap coming out of their mouths but I know the important things.

Let's move on to the fun stuff !


17. Where do you read?

Mostly on my bed but I always end up falling asleep... *sigh*.


18. What did you want to be when you were little?

*cough* singer *cough*


19. What's your favourite book ending?

Wonder by R.J Palacio, it was beautiful and heart-warming. I highly recommend reading it if you haven't !


20. Do you have a favorite superhero?

It's hard... I like Daredevil.

Thanks for the shout out! You know, one of these days I will have to read Wonder.

I'm sure you'll love it ! Just try to read the first chapter, that's all it takes to get attached to Auggie !

Thanks for the shout out! You know, one of these days I will have to read Wonder.

This is awesome. I saw this post on Twitter and clicked over, read the whole thing, and then saw my name tagged at the end! lol I had no idea! Thanx, and nice post. I liked your answers. New Girl is a fun show and yay for McFlurry's. I like a chocolate shake from McDonald's sometimes for no reason, just because. :)

Totally agree about #11 too. It's amazing how different people can read the same book and come away with different insights or takes on it. One of the great things about reading.

Aawwww you made my day ~ I'm so glad you liked it ! New Girl is the best, the new season started a few days ago, I think. I prefer strawberry shakes but chocolate is my second favourite :3

That's what I call book magic haha it's awesome.

I'm looking forward to reading your answers ! :D
