Liebster Award!

Thanks to the lovely Emma over at Emma's Bookery I was nominated for the Liebster award! I love fun things like this to learn more about other bloggers and it's a great way to visit some other blogs you might end up loving! :) 
Here are the Liebster Award rules:

1. Post 11 facts about yourself.

2. Answer the 11 questions created by the person who nominated you, then create your own set for the people who you are going to nominate!

3. Choose 11 people (that have under 200 followers) to nominate and link them to your post.

4. Let the people you nominated know they've been tagged. No tag backs!

11 Facts About Myself:

  • I've been blogging for almost 2 years now, wow! I can't believe how fast time has flown by!
  • I am secretly obsessed with the Carebears. I used to love the TV show and films when I was just a girl, and I guess I never grew out of that love!
  • I'm a hopeless romantic who can't stand unhappy endings.
  • I can't read two or more books at the same time; I just can't.
  • I hope I will be able to move to the UK one day.
  • I wish I could see my nanna, who passed away two years ago, one more time and get one of her amazing hugs.
  • I'm currently addicted to 'Hart of Dixie' and 'Jane the Virgin', which are both such great TV shows <3
  • I love love love anything cinnamon.
  • My favourite author of all time is Jane Austen.
  • I love pretty dresses and own way too many.
  • My favourite drink is a chai tea latte (particularly Cafe Nero's Chai Latte, yum!)

11 Questions:
  • What made you start blogging? - I had been thinking about starting my own blog for quite some time, but I wasn't really sure what to blog about exactly. Then I suddenly thought how amazing it would be to share my love for books with others, and I decided to just give Blogger a try and start my own blog... And suddenly here we are, about two years later!
  • What blogs do you check daily? - I have to admit there aren't that many blogs which I check daily, most of them I check weekly. However, there's one blog which I've been a big fan of for a couple of years now, 'The Joy of Fashion', and I even became friends with Marie, the owner of the blog. She's an absolutely wonderful person and her blog always makes me smile! :)
  • What are your top five favourite books? - Ahhh, this is such a difficult question! Alright, in random order:
    • 'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen
    • 'Harry Potter' series by J.K. Rowling
    • 'Little Women' by Louisa May Alcott
    • 'Something Borrowed' by Emily Giffin
    • 'From Notting Hill With Love... Actually' by Ali McNamara
  • If you could travel to anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? - Right now I'd probably go to Hawaii for a relaxing week at the beach after the busy week I had at work!
  • What is the one wish you would like to be granted? - For my family and friends to live happy and healthy lives until they're very old. But I guess that's something all of us wish... So, another one: I wish I would be able to work at a university, researching and teaching English literature courses, specialising in Jane Austen. 
  • What is your favourite quote? - I don't have one!
  • Favourite childhood hero? - Do the Carebears count...?
  • What are you most excited for in 2015? - My trip to the USA in the summer!
  • Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? - Hopefully happily married with a couple of kids and a great job!
  • Do you enjoy summer or winter more and why? - I definitely enjoy winter more, because I really dislike hot weather. I love sitting inside when it's cold outside, with a nice cup of tea, a good book, and a blanket on the couch!
  • If you could go back in time when and why would you go there? - I'd either go back to the time when Jane Austen was still alive and become her best friend; or I'd like to go back to when my grandfather who I never got to meet was still alive, so I could get to know him.

11 New Questions:
  • What's your favourite colour combination?
  • Which book did you last read that was way better than you expected?
  • Which genre of films are you definitely NOT a fan of?
  • Which character from 'Friends' are you most like?
  • Cereals or toast?
  • If you would take part in a Miss World competition, what would your talent be?
  • What is the last thing you watched on TV?
  • Are you happy with your name?
  • What is your guilty pleasure?
  • Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny?
  • What's one of the most important things you've learned in your life so far?
