Liebster Blog Award

I've won the Liebster Award. Gifted to me by Aldrea Alien and Ana at Beach Bum Reads.

The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers and Liebster is a German word which means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

Each person has given me two different types of rules. Strange! So, I will combine the two rules.

The rules:

1. Answer 10 questions the tagger has given you and give 10 questions for the people you’ve tagged.

2. Choose 5 blogs with 200 or less followers and link them in your post.

3. Tell them you’ve tagged them.

4. Remember, no tag backs.

I'm giving this award to these people:
My 10 questions provided by Ana:

1. If you could slap one character out of a book who would it be? (sorry for the violence.. but I mean... there are some of those characters that just aaahhh aggravate you!) 
Haha. This is a funny first question. 

2. How long have you been blogging?
Since March! I'm having a blast.

3. If you could giveaway an entire series, what series would it be and why?
The Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis

4. What author would you like to spend a whole day with and why?
Not fair! Only one author? I would have to say Jill Shalvis. She makes me laugh, I love her writing and I aim to write like her. So, I could get some fabulous advice from her and have fun at the same time.

5. Make an estimate of how many books you've read throughout your entire life
Too many to count. My goal this year is 60 books.

6. What was the book that got you into reading?
The first book that captured my attention was The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton when I was in the 5th grade... a long time ago! This book opened up my eyes to the world of books.

7. Where is the best place for you to read?
My bed, but I would love to sit at the beach and read all day under an umbrella drinking lemonada.

8. Who is your favorite character and why?

I love Chloe from Head Over Heels. She is rambunctious, fun and open for love even though she thinks otherwise. 

9. What book could you reread over and over again without ever getting bored with it?
Pride and Prejudice. There's just something about Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth!

10. What do you like most about blogging?
A way to get my thoughts across. Also, to make connections with other writers. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is fun, Melinda! Thanks for the tag. It was fun reading your answers :-)

    I've gotten so distracted with my editing, that I still haven't answered the questions from the last award! I need to get a move on it!

  2. Wow! I feel honored, thanks for the tag. I loved your answers. I'm a big fan of Mr. Darcy and Jill Shalvis too.

  3. Oooh, thanks for the tag, Melinda! I'm guessing we'll have very similar answers for beach reading (love it!) and Pride and Prejudice. I'm in love with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, too. Sigh! Thanks again!

  4. Thanks again, Melinda! I've finally posted mine...


    Had to choose P&P, too. LOVE that book!
