My second nomination for the Liebester Award courtesy of Pilar @ The Bookworm Shelf Go follow her she’s funny & I always love reading her posts!


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers.
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  • Notify your 11 nominees.

Pilar’s Questions:

1. Favorite Ship?

Hmm, Percy and Annabeth. I like them separately but I also really like their dynamic together plus I’m a sucker for friends to lovers.

2. Favorite blog post you have ever written?

Movies vs Books, I had a lot of fun putting it together. It started off as a project I did for myself before I ever contemplated blogging. It also seems like everyone else enjoyed it too. So thanks!!

3. Most disappointing book you’ve read this year?

Spoilers for my End of Year post but it was The King of Crows by Libba Bray. The last in a series that was wholly enjoyable and great and to end it like that, disappointing indeed.

4. The longest book you have ever read?

According to Goodreads if I don’t count bound ups then its Queen of Air & Darkness by Cassandra Clare.

5. Any series that you’re currently watching or movies that you saw recently?

I’m terrible at watching things but as of the moment being the holiday season I have been watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas both editions, & Home Alone.   

6. If you were a god/goddess of any one thing, what would it be?

Goddess of  Magical Worlds, invoking my name in a doorway would allow you to cross into another.

7. What is one of your biggest pet peeves?

Mine is a petty pet peeve because I’ve had it for so long. Once upon a time, CD’s were how we used to listen to music & inside a booklet was included of some images & lyrics until one day they stopped putting all the lyrics inside. So to the internet we took to find out what was being said in these songs and what was discovered is a TON of songs included words like breathing/breath/breathe & people do not know the difference between breathe with an E, and breath. I would have to constantly check and recheck that my understanding was correct because it happened so frequently. Now, I’m not holy mad at the blessed souls who did what the music industry should have been providing but LORD, it was an exhausting experience. To sum up I hate whoever decided to stop putting lyrics in the booklets. The End.    

8. Name three things that you love doing (besides reading and writing). Why do you love them?

Designing & Crafting are my next biggest loves after reading. I love seeing a vision in my head come together in real life it’s just a different kind of magic. The third thing is playing with my animals. I have a cat & dog and they are just so much fun. 

9. A witch, a siren, & a fairy godmother are all in need of an apprentice. Who do you chose to go with?

It’s not every day I get to answer my own questions! Definitely going with Witch, I teach them to be a human and they teach me a recipe to prolong the life of my pets.

10. If you could have anything right now, what would you ask for?

All my bills paid off for the rest of my life. Haha does that count because I think it should lol

11. Tell me a weird/ fun fact about you.

In eighth grade I literally won an award (a plaque to be exact) for READING. I didn’t even know that was possible. I also believe it was the only award I actually got at that ceremony LOL So, if you didn’t think I was a reading nerd before, now you do!

Thanks again to Pilar for these amazing questions!!

I nominate:

Emilie @ Chronicles of a Bibliomaniac

  1. I am with you on the whole ‘no lyrics in the CD booklet’ pet peeve. I prefer having physical CD rather than just a digital file on my laptop anyway and I always liked to flick through the booklets to check the lyrics I didn’t quite catch. I think some CDs might still do it though because out of curiosity, I’ve just gone through the booklet of my newest CD purchase and it does have the lyrics!!

  2. I’m obsessed with evermore too!! It’s just too good 😍

    Your answer for the god/goddess question is AMAZING!!! How did you come up with that 😱🤩 I think your pet peeve is justified, and I’ve also noticed that so many people don’t know the difference between breath and breathe!! For a long time I thought I was the one with the confusion 😅 Having your bills payed for life is a great idea for a wish, I think I want to change my answer 😆

    Loved your post Alicia!! And congrats on the awards ☺️
