The Liebster Award Tag!

So I am freeee of the madness that is the SAT, and now am a slave to the madness that is NaNoWriMo. Wish me luck, I guess.

I realized that I’d been tagged for this like…six months ago by Kenzie, and I wrote out the post, and then I just forgot to do it. Whoops. But I had no blog post written for today (SAT’s fault, not mine for once), and so I guess I’ll just post it right now.

  • Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you! (Thank you, Kenzie! You have such an amazing blog.)
  • Answer the 11 questions you’ve been asked
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and notify them that they’ve been nominated (wait what)
  • Give your nominees 11 questions to answer! (I’ll try…I’m going to run out of questions, aren’t I?)

What’s your favorite read of 2019?

I forgot all the things I’ve read this year. Have I even read any YA?

Oh wait, there’s Blue Lily, Lily Blue. That was good. But my favorite is probably Scottish Folk Tales, published by Waverly Books? Lately I’ve been getting really boring and have started reading mostly fairy tales and legends rather than YA. But that’s when I bother to read at all. I am SUCH a good book blogger.

But am I even a book blogger? What am I? A writing blogger? A folklore blogger? Is a folklore blogger even a thing? I am suddenly having an existential crisis about this?

Dogs, cats, or birds?

Eh, I like all of them, but especially cats…But I like birds, too. I won’t pick a favorite animal.

If you lived in the world of Harry Potter, what memory would you think of to summon a Patronus charm?

I don’t…I don’t even know. I am failing fighting off the dementor attack, guys.

What would your Patronus be? (it doesn’t have to be whatever you were given by Pottermore!)

Uh…Probably a crow or a raven? They seem really dark and closed-off and mysterious, but really they’re just weirdos. Then again, comparing myself to those genius birds may be flattery. 😉

What’s a book that you believe literally EVERYONE should read?


So I really liked Chretien De Troyes?

What’s the oddest fear you’ve ever had?

I have too many odd fears to count, really.

Besides writing and reading, what do you like doing in your spare time?

I surf the internet. I do school. I lament my lack of a life.

What’s your favorite color?

I have a lot, but for some reason I think it’s blue at the moment? A bright, sapphire blue. Which I never really saw coming. It was red for the longest time.

What’s your favorite flower? (and do you know the meaning behind it?)

Er. I mean I like roses. They symbolize a lot of things, depending on the color, but the most popular meaning is true love.

I like heather I guess?

I like lotuses.

What is one thing you’ve ALWAYS wanted to do, but haven’t yet done?


Yes, it’s true. I have trouble finishing things. I’ve finished a 112 page story before, but it had no chapters (I was twelve okay) and 112 pages is a little short to be a novel, isn’t it? What would that be, a novella?

Write a haiku about the weirdest memory you’ve ever had! (this isn’t a question. just go with it.)

The alien lights

They are flashing and gleaming

They are all liars

I’m just going to drop that there with no explanation. Oh! Also, I only JUST realized that there were only five syllables in the middle line literally right before I was about to post, and I had to change the poem. Way to go, me, I’m a genius!

I am not going to drop eleven random facts about myself, so uh…I guess I should make some questions here for you guys to answer?

  1. What is your favorite Greek tragedy/Ancient literature/really old book? (Okay, fine, any book older than the 19th century.)
  2. Who is your fictional role model?
  3. What is one story (or multiple stories!) that you want to write but probably never will?
  4. Who is your very favorite character you’ve ever written/read (and if you can’t choose that, then who’s the character who’s most like you?)
  5. What is one book everyone else loves but you hate?
  6. What’s the saddest book/legend/fairy tale/whatever that you’ve ever read?
  7. Favorite character from the Arthurian legends, if any? (Yes, I’m talking about this again)(I’m sorry, I’m running out of questions okay)
  8. Hogwarts house? (Yes I’m REALLY running out of questions)
  9. What are the things you do to procrastinate, besides surfing the internet?
  10. What’s your most annoying fear? The one that gets in the way of things the most?
  11. What’s the oldest book you’ve ever read?

Oh my gosh you guys I came up with eleven questions I can’t believe this

No way am I coming up with eleven people, though, so I’ll just go with…four. Four sounds good.

I tag:





Now I’ll just forget to notify anybody and then remember a year later and then decide it’s too late. Oh well. (Kidding, I’ll at least try to remember.)

I hope against hope that I had no typos, and thank you for making it to the end of this!

  1. Haha, I don’t know what kind of blogger I am either! I mean, I don’t really read that much YA and I never have- actually this year I probably read more than ever, which means like…five, or something. I want to read more folk/fairy tales actually because I want to write retellings, and you can’t write retellings if you don’t have anything to retell… yeah. But I don’t get around to doing it. Mostly I read middle grade novels, even though I am old.
    I think that 112 pages is something to be proud of. Some of my favorite books are about that long. I have only one story that is longer than that and it is because it is a complete rambly mess.
    Your haiku is very intriguing, I must say. I would like to know the story behind that.

    • Oh, it sounds like we’re in the same boat. Because I’ve kind of had a YA burnout over the past year and just cannot find the energy for the life of me, and I’ve just been reading classics and fairy tales and medieval literature and everything not YA? But my blog is kind of YA-related, so…
      I haven’t read middle grade in FOREVER, but I have found some amazing ones before. There are some really good ones out there.

      Thank you. I guess I probably shouldn’t undervalue my work; that WAS an accomplishment! And you tend to write shorter stuff too? That is awesome. And oh, that one long story being a total mess I RELATE.

      It’s a bit of a long story…But basically, when I was little, I would occasionally have vivid dreams that I would think were real. Leading to me having a dream where I saw an alien spaceship right outside our house and mom saw it too but she kept lying to me and saying it wasn’t there even though we both saw it, and WHY WOULD THREE-YEAR-OLD ME THINK THAT WAS REAL I DON’T UNDERSTAND. Ahem. Sorry.

      • Yes, there are some AMAZING middle grade books out there. If you ever need any recommendations, I will be here, ready to throw books at your head. 😉
        Indeed, a great accomplishment! Yeah, I do tend to write shorter stuff, and so does my sister. Length isn’t everything. My sister has written absolutely heart wrenching books that are much less than 50,000 words.
        Ah, it all comes clear. I think I would be very disturbed if I thought there was an alien spaceship outside, especially if my own mother was lying to me about it.
