💙 What is The Liebster Award?
“The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.” – The Global Aussie

|| What’s the best setup for reading in your opinion? (Place, sounds, food/drink, time of day, etc.) ||
A blanket + pillows + tea + LIGHT.
That’s all I have to say on the subject.
|| If you could become a creature from mythology/legends, which one would you be and why? ||
Oh, I love this question! I would love to be some sort of demon like creature? Like tieflings in D&D? Or, idk, dark elves? With blue or purple skin and sharp teeth lol.
Either that or some kind of shapeshifter.
|| What are your thoughts on podcasts? Do you listen to any, and which ones? ||
I wish my audioprocessing was better but I try lmao.
I love Critical Role but I kind of watch it as well because they show funny stuff sometimes (like Sam’s costumes!) I also used to listen to Welcome to Night Vale but I’m not caught up. Then I listened some of Alice is not Dead but I don’t remember if I finished it? And I also started The Adulting With ADHD recently.
Would love to listen to some more but we’ll see!
|| Is there a genre you hate/dislike, and why? ||
Hmmm, I don’t think so? I love fantasy and then I read contemporary when I need to clenease my reading taste buds and the rest is just ‘well, that sounds cool and it’s gay so let’s jump into it.’
I think I read the least of historical fiction though? But I’m just mostly indifferent.
|| What is the longest and the shortest book you’ve ever read? ||
The longest was Mo Dao Zu Shi by 墨香铜臭. It had about 1700 pages so no contest here. The shortest? I have no idea — I read some short stories that were 1-2 pages long. I don’t track that.
|| What is your favorite meme ever? ||
But what always cracks me up are those memeception things where people try to layer memes onto each other or creative uses of loss.jpg
|| Which fancy book features do you like? (Sleeves, flypapers, ribbons, etc.) ||
I lately mostly read ebooks so I don’t really have any but I saw some gorgeous book sleeves and sprayed edges!! And I always love books with ribbons!
Maybe one day I will indulge myself 🙂
|| What’s your favorite food/meal? ||
Currently I don’t have one? I need to work on that but for now let’s stick with I LOVE CHOCOLATE IN ANY AND EVERY FORM (except when it has raisins and white ‘chocolate’ is not chocolate)
|| If you could go for a cozy reading retreat for a couple of days, where would you go? ||
Hmm, there are two options for that:
- Somwhere with forests and mountains. A nice cabin in the woods maybe with a place to sit outside, blankets, hot chocolate… Maybe I would walk some and read in nature as well.
- Or a city with nice parks, art galleries, museums… I can sit down and read and get up when I’ve had enough and need some moving around.
|| Recommend me a book! ||
Ok, I sadly don’t know you much yet but I checked out your ‘Best of’ and I feel like Monstress by Marjorie M. Liu or Mo Dao Zu Shi by 墨香铜臭 may be up your alley? Honestly, most of the books I mentioned in the first question my pique your interest. (I hope!)
