I Was Nominated:

I have been nominated by The Booklicker for the Liebster Award. Woot. Woot.
It is an award that helps bloggers with less than 200 followers to get their well -- deserved recognition and more followers - because we blogger love that don't we? And I am so happy and thankful that The Booklicker thought of me. You don't know how much this award touches my heart. 
Gracias, danke schön, thank you!

Thee Rules:

  1. Link back that darling blogger that tagged you.
  2. Nominate 10 wicked awesome blogs.
  3. Enlighten those 10 bloggers of their prestige.

1. How did you come up with your blogs name?

Hmm. A toughie. It is sort of a personal statement of mine. So here's the story: it all began when I was girl and realized I was imperfect. When I got to middle-school it became ever more apparent. Than high school came around and -- back me up here girls, you're never pretty enough, never skinny enough, never smart enough to please everyone in your life. I felt that weight harder than most people, fell into depression, self-harm, and still have self-esteem issues. But writing was my beacon of hope. I could read and escape, write and feel bliss. So when I decided to put my writing out there, there was nothing more proper than the very word I had never been able to apply to myself. But my writing, my writing is perfect because it is an expression and every expression is perfect.

2. What's the first book you got obsessed with?

*Hides her face in her hands* Sigh. The Twilight Saga got me into Young Adult books and once I started reading that genre I was completely hooked. Judge me if you will.

3. Who's your first fictional crush?

Please refer to question #2. With that being said it was not a Cullen. I tend to dig the dark ones. And so when I read the Immortal Instruments Saga, Jace became this lovely rendezvous for me.

4. Which author would you like to meet the most?

Can he be dead? Yes. Okay then! I have two, Ernest Hemingway (of course) and Erich Maria Remarque. There is literally not a day that goes by where I do not draw on the cocky soridness that was Hemingway. *Heady sighs ensues.* We would have had the greatest love affair, well second greatest affair Cole Porter and I's Parisian rendezvous. Whenever I begin to write, basically anything there is a mantra that goes on inside my head and goes a little something like this: "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence you know."--Hemingway.

5. What's the first fandom you joined?

I don't know what a fandom is so I have yet to join one. The first fanfiction writing website I joined and continuously write on is called: Fanfiction (If you click the link it will take you to my profile and my fanfiction stories. Do go. I encourage the spreading of virtual love.)

6. What's your opinion on fanfiction?

Reading the questions ahead of time would have been swell. But I am an impatient little book hogger. Please refer to #5. separate  from that I adore them and abhor myself for not having the time to read all the novellas I want to on the sites, again Fanfiction (link above) is a marvelous site full of S O M A N Y intriguing genres and every YA book fanfiction you can think of.

7. How long do you think you'll run your blog?

Oh you know, not that long. Just basically until I die.

8. Young Adult or New Adult?

As I do not know what "New Adult" is or means my gut reaction is to say: N E W A D U L T. But I shall not, I thoroughly adore(!!) YA, it is marvelously wondrous.

9. Favorite reading snack?

Hmm. I love carrots, and green peppers. But it takes away too much of my peripheral eye attention :-(] and hot cheeto puffs are far to messy, most likely it is hot tea, hot tea latte, cappuccino, cafe misto, or straight cafe americano. I am big on hot beverages, especially coffee. I might have an addiction, in which case I feel it just make me more of an enigma. 

And when I drink these hot beverages it is all about the #1. baguettes. I have a passionate love for breads, from flaky pastry soft to sourdough hard. 
#2. Biscotti, Click the link to go to my favorite food-blogger and favorite recipe of deliciousness.
And #3. Madeleines (click the link to go to my favorite recipe) which are marvelousness wrapped in a fatty-acids, calories and lovely fluffy, buttery, mouth-melting Parisan biscuit cookie/pastry things. 

10. Which book would you like to see as a movie or TV show?

Hmm. Hmmm. Hm. How am I supposed to know that?! That is an unfair question. Because A: there are far too many choices and B: allow me to refer you to A.
