Here are the rules for the Liebster award:

I want to extend an incredibly belated THANK YOU to Michel at the Raistlin0903 Blog for nominating me for The Liebster Award! Even though this response to the nomination is incredibly late, if you have not checked out Michel’s post, please do! While you’re over there don’t forget to follow his Blog because he consistently puts up great content!
The Q’s and A’s:
What is your favorite game genre?
I don’t play many games, truthfully it’s pretty rare that I’m playing a game. If I have to pick a game genre though, it would be action/adventure.
What is your favorite book genre?
Nope! I refuse to answer this question! I automatically veto the requirement to answer this blasphemous question lol. I am WAYYYY TOO INDECISIVE to ever be able to pick just one book genre! I can narrow it down to my favorite genres though, so I will just do that. My favorite genres are Fantasy and Science Fiction-and if I go with the very, incredibly broad understanding of Fantasy and Science Fiction I can shove quite a few sub-genres into that answer for both novels, comics/graphic novels and manga.
What region do you prefer for comics? ( Asia, America, Europe?)
I’m just going to change ‘region’ to ‘regions’ because I honestly can’t choose between American comics/graphic novels and Japanese manga. I love them both equally; however, I have been reading much more manga in recent years than comics.
Why did you start blogging?
I don’t really know how to say/type this in a way that won’t end up sounding like a strange pity party lol. The honest truth is that I didn’t have anyone to talk to about books. I don’t have any bookish friends (except 1) and so there was no one for me to rave about an amazing book I had just read to, or anyone for me to recommend some of my favorite reads to, or to have bookish conversations where I could gush about the books I’d just bought, or that could understand the struggles of reorganizing your bookcases without giving you judgemental looks. Blogging about books is an opportunity to get to interact with like minded people who are interested in similar things to me that I can talk to in a safe space where my seemingly weird bookish habits are not judged. It’s gives me the ability to speak freely and honestly about books while being able to maintain a level of anonymity if I choose to.
What is the trashiest game you played, or book/comic you ever read?
BL (Boy Love)/Yaoi manga…I do not even have to think very hard about this question. I am unashamed of my love of BL, although the genre is incredibly problematic for a plethora of reasons, I still love its trashy goodness!
Have you ever tried surströmming and if not, how do you think it tastes? Have you ever tried mämmi?
I have tried neither of these foods. I do like fish…and culturally fermented/salted fish is a staple part of my diet, especially while I was growing up. So, it’s possible that I would like surströmming if I got to cook it how I would normally cook sardine, mackerel, cod, or herring. I’m almost certain that I would enjoy mämmi based solely on the fact that it is a desert lol.
What is the most disgusting (tasting, looking and/or smelling) national delicacy you know of (where you live?)
I live in Canada and we are known for our absolute infatuation with Tim Hortons. Yes, I’m aware that a particular restaurant can’t be considered a national delicacy, but Timmy’s is such a hallowed and beloved place that everything there might as well be a Canadian national delicacy. Tim Hortons is a coffee shop franchise that is incredibly popular here. You can get hot and cold beverages, donuts, pastries, and various sandwiches there…and I love Tim Hortons. BUT…ughhhhhh I CAN NOT STAND HONEY CRULLERS! It’s a donut (I think?!?) and it has a glaze, I’m fine with the first two components…yay for sugar coated carbs, but the inside of it turns my insides. The inside of one of those wretched things is moist, and not in a good way. The texture makes me feel like I’m eating soggy something…I can’t even think of anything to compare it to. Moral of the story-it’s disgusting!
What is the funniest word you have heard (and if not in English what does it mean?)
I recently watched the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast last week Wednesday so of course I have got to pick expectorate/expectorating.
Please share one personal thing about you. Why that one in particular?
Hmmm…a personal thing about me…let’s see…I like reading? Question didn’t say that it had to be something personal that other people didn’t already know, so…yup that’s my answer. I chose this particular personal thing to share because I don’t necessarily like to get personal…and that was the most impersonal personal thing I could think of!
In the console war, where do you stand?
Uhhh, what’s a console? Okay, I’m not that gaming illiterate but I don’t really have a stand on any side of the console war because I don’t really play games. I will choose Play Station because it’s the system that I’ve had the most experience with…and although it’s not mine, there is one in my house.
Which Anime series have you watched that really had you on the edge of your seat? (And if you don’t watch/like Anime, which tv series)
The most recent anime series that had me on the edge of my seat while watching it would have to be Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World.
I really tried to make sure that all the Blogs that I nominate had not previously been nominated for The Liebster Award. So hopefully this will be your first time doing this and you won’t have to hate me for having to do it again 🙂
