Liebster Award: I feel overwhelmed

Okay, So I was nominated by Ginger-read Reviews for the Liebster Award. I feel very overwhelmed and giddy :)



What is the Liebster Award??
Well, this award is for bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Awardees get to share 11 facts about themselves, answer the 11 questions written by the person who tagged them, choose 11 more questions, and tag 11 more bloggers to answer those 11 questions.







11 facts about me:


1. I was married at 19.
2. I'm very short, barely 5'1!!!! I hate buying pants 'cause of my height.
3. I love reading YA romance books, A LOT!!!
4. I've been with my husband for 7 years and I believe the way we met was a total book moment!! 
5. I'm literally addicted to Starbucks' mocha's, I always have to get one when I'm near a Starbucks.
6. I really want to be an author and I am always thinking up ideas for books.
7. Any creature that has more than 4 legs freaks me out, majorly.
8. My mom still calls by my childhood nickname, boodle-butt, even though I'm 22..(it makes me feel special, don't judge)
9. I have a favorite blanket, which has spider-man on it. I always cuddle with it when I'm reading. 
10. I love blogging, but I get really nerves doing it, and I'm still very shy about it (even though I absolutely love it) 
11. I'm most likely doing this all wrong.. 



Okay, so now I'm suppose to answer 11 questions by the person who tagged me. So here goes:

11 questions for me:

1. What "paranormal"-being would you choose to be and why?
 Most likely a werewolf, I just find that.. hot.. having a 'beast' side..

2.When did you start blogging?
I've had my blog for maybe half a year now, however it's just now picking up and becoming more like a blog.

3. How do you choose whether or not to read a book? 
Well, I am very picking when it comes to books. I have to read other reviews,the synopsis, and ratings. And the cover really has to speak to me :)

4.Name your favorite bookish couple? and why?
I have so many, but DAEMON AND KATY! DAEMON AND KATY!!! I just simple love them, everything about them!

5. How did you come up with your blog name?
I got the first part 'the ups and downs' from my favorite book, the perks of being a wallflower. and I just consider myself a book, crazed girl ('cause I'd rather read then do anything else) nothing fancy. 

6.Why did you start blogging?
Well, I wanted to for years, but never had the courage. So one day, I was just like 'what the hell,' why not! I love books and I wanna blog, if it sucks, oh well!

7. How many books are in your to-read pile?
oh dear lord, god.... right now I believe it's a bit over 30 books, but I keep adding everyday...

8. Do you usually read mainstream or indie authors?
Both, however, more of an Indie author reader!

9.Name a book that you could have done without reading? And why?
Destiny Binds, I just.. we couldn't.....the book and I just didn't like each other...

10. If you could teleport yourself into any fictional world, where would you go? And why? (totally stealing Ginger-read's answer, 'cause that's exactly what I would of said!) Alegaesia (the Eragon trilogy) 'cause I'd be like a bad-ass elf with an awesome dragon. And could fight with a sword and do some amazing magic :)  

11.If you could be any Character from a book, who would you be and why?
This is HARD!!! I really wanna say Katy Schwartz from Obsidian, for very obvious reasons, *cough*daemon*cough* She's such a strong character, and she does what she believes is right, no matter what. And she doesn't let anyone push her around! She is a strong character through and through, very admirable!
