the book fangirling blog award

Hello, all! I recently (like, a couple days ago) learned that the lovely Fiona from A Girl Between the Pages had nominated me for the BookFangirling Blog Award! Big hugs going her way for this. 

So, if you haven't heard of this particular award, here's a summary: It was created by Hannah over at BookFangirling (who is absolutely wonderful, I might add). To complete this tag, I have to answer the questions below, then tag 5-10 other bloggers who deserve the award and come up with my own questions for them! All of that information will be below, but first, here are my answers. 

1. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My absolute favourite thing about it is the sense of community and support that I get from everyone. I'm by no means a popular blogger or anything like that, but people are still so nice to me! I love that this is a place where everyone has similar interests and we're all  just happy to talk about books for hours on end. 

2. Which books or series your book boyfriend/s came from?
Promise you won't judge me? Pinky swear? Because this is an embarrassing one. Did you promise? Okay, here we go. My most significant book boyfriend has to be Edward Cullen from the ever-so-famous Twilight series. We've been broken up for a good few years now, but back in '09 I was absolutely OBSESSED. We're just gonna let that stay in the past, though. 

3. What was the craziest thing you ever did because of fangirling?
See, this is going back to the whole Twilight thing. It's possible that my friend and I, when we were around 12 or 13, madetwilightthemedpuppetsofabunchofthecharacters. Again, in the past. 

4. If you were to choose one book or one series to read for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Harry Potter, duh. Speaking of which, if you missed my last post, I'm going to be doing a re-read of the whole series through August and into September! 

5. When was the last time you had a major book hangover, and what was that book/series?
Ou, this is a tough one. My last book hangover was probably last summer after I read We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. As I'm sure you know, that book is a complete mindfuck and I pretty much just had to hide under a blanket to recover from it. But other than that, I think my last real book hangover was after (you guessed it) Breaking Dawn was released. Promise you still love me? 

Now, it's time for me to nominate bloggers and post my own questions! If you decide to post this for yourself, please leave me a link in the comments so I can read your answers! :) 

Georgina @ Reads and Rambles
Amanda @ Stuck in YA Books 

Here are your questions, ladies!
1. What is your number one, ride-or-die book/series to fangirl over? 
2. If you could pluck any character out of any book and have him or her in your life, who would it be? 
3. What book/series is a guilty pleasure that you secretly love? 
4. Do you listen to music while reading or prefer silence?
5. What was your gateway book into full-on addiction?

  1. Thank you! I will post mine soon!

  2. Oh my, your answers were fascinating and downright humorous. Haha! You're really a big fan of the Twilight series! I used to love it but when the hype became so strong, I just suddenly lost interest and I didn't even know why. Lol!

    And I totally agree with you for your answer on question #1. I still get surprise by the amount of people visiting my blog often and posting their thoughts out. It's just the best knowing people like you on the blogosphere! *hugs*

  3. Luckily I got over my Twilight phase a while ago! But for three years I was downright OBSESSED. So embarrassing hahaha
