Liebster Blog Award

Thank you Monica @ Welcome to the World of Monica for nominating me for this award. I don't know why you did it, but wow, I really appreciate it! Cool.

There are some rules: 
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog and link back to the blogger who presented this award to you.
2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees.
3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen. (No tag backs)
4. Copy and paste the blog award on you blog.  

My answers to Monica's questions:
1. What is your favorite food?
I'm a big fan of Mexican and Lebanese food. 

2. What is your favorite band?
You might hate me here, but One Direction is really capturing my attention right now, but you know I also have a thing for Fun.  I can't decide.

3. If you can't answer that question because you have too many, then what is your favorite genre of music?
With very few exceptions, I love(like) most music.  I can tell you I DON'T like Nickleback. 

4. Have you ever dog-eared a book in your life? Be honest, now.
I can't recall I time that I've ever dog-eared a book, but I was young and foolish once, so it could have happened.  Who knows.

5. Have you ever really HATED someone?  As in, not that person annoys me, but I REALLY hate that person?  
No, I strongly dislike people from time to time, but something seriously has to be wrong for that.  I get along with most everyone though.

6. Peanut butter: Do you like crunchy or creamy better? (if you're allergic, please don't be offended by this question)
I'm going to make a judgement call here and say creamy. (Sorry second love, crunchy.)

7. Has there ever been a book you didn't want to read or didn't think about reading but then you saw the movie and decided to read it?  If so, which book&movie?
This happened to me with Eragon. I had no interest in the book, it seemed to long, but I saw the movie and enjoyed it so I gave the book a try.  Unfortunately, I didn't really like the book, but I still like the movie.

8. Which do you prefer: Barnes and or
Barnes and Noble

9. How long have you been reading? Since High School, Middle School, or before you can remember (or other specified time frame)?
I have a very clear memory of myself as a toddler sitting with a stack of books equivalent to my size, reading to myself.  I memorized which words went to which pages, so I wouldn't have to wait for my parents to read to me.  

10. Do you have a favorite TV show or Movie?
Right now I'd say, if it's made by BBC I'll watch it. (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Merlin)

11. The Vampire Academy (by Richelle Mead): Dimitri or Adrian?
I haven't read this, sorry.

Here's the facts:
1. I've recently become a neat freak, but only where the kitchen is concerned.  You've been warned. 
2. I pick which books I should read mostly on the title and the book cover.  I never read the jacket because they give too much away.  I like the surprise.
3. I constantly have dreams where I become apart of my favorite books.
4. I love babies.  They are so cute and adorable!
5. I am a sentimental person, I love keepsakes that remind me of my favorite memories.
6. I am a huge fan of Doctor Who even though I only started watching it last year.  
7. I love movies and going to the theater alone, it's very relaxing.
8. I love musicals and enjoy preforming in them as often as I can fit them into my schedule.
9. I love spicy food!  
10. When I was younger my mom had to ban me from buying books because I had so many.
11. I love Disney! (It's my jam.)
