Event - Liebster Award Nomination!

Moonrise Book Blog
Nominated for a Liebster Award!

Thank you to S.R. McKade 
for the Honor!

I am thrilled to be nominated for a Liebster Award by S.R. McKade--thank you so much, my friend! Please check out S.R. McKade's blog, and her book, Holding Out For Skye.

Now, to follow the rules of the Liebster Award...

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. Done! (Thanks again, S.R. McKade!)

2. Answer the eleven questions he/she asks.

3. Nominate eleven bloggers.

4. Ask these eleven bloggers eleven questions.

5. Let these eleven bloggers know that they have been nominated.

Here are the eleven questions my nominator has requested I answer: 

Q1 – What made you start your blog?

MBB: I started my blog when I found myself needing to discuss books with others besides my immediate friends and family. Blogging allowed me to connect with other readers, bloggers, and authors who shared my passion, and who were just as excited about a new book release as I was! 

Q2 – What’s your favorite book/author and why?

MBB: This is such a tough question. I have so many favorites, but I can narrow it down to a favorite series: The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. The reason this is one of my favorites is because it was the one that really hooked me on paranormal romance. Of course, years ago I read all the Anne Rice books, and loved them, too! But the Black Dagger Brotherhood series brought such a high level of steamy romance that I couldn't resist!

Q3 – Do you listen to music and if yes, what’s your preference?

MBB: Yes! Mostly adult alternative

Q4 – How does listening to music make you feel?

MBB: Listening to music makes me feel introspective. Music can bring out emotions, and can sweep you away in much the same way as a good book! 

Q5 – What’s your pet peeve?

MBB: I try not to let little things bother me, but I can't help feeling uncomfortable every time I hear (or read) anyways. I can't help it. 

Q6 – I’m an eclectic reader. What about you, are you picky or will you try anything that looks interesting?

MBB: I will read anything that looks interesting, but I do have my comfort genres. :-) 

Q7 – Are you a “Wakey, wakey, sunshine, it’s morning” person or a “Go Away, pulling-covers-over-head It’s still early” one?

MBB: I'm definitely not a morning person! I prefer staying up late (with a book!) and sleeping in.   

Q8 – What language do you wish you were fluent in?

MBB: This is an easy one. I wish I was fluent in German. I come from a German immigrant family, and most of my relatives still live in Germany. It would be great to be able to speak fluently with them. My skills are conversational, at best. 

Q9 – If there’s one country you could visit, which one would it be?

MBB: I've traveled extensively, lived abroad, and visited over 20 countries. But much of the world is still a mystery. I would love to visit Japan or New Zealand. 

Q10 – Do you like the sound of the rain and if so, how does it make you feel?

MBB: I absolutely love the sound of the rain! It makes me feel relaxed and at peace, like I'm in my element. 

Q11 – If you could be anywhere right now, where would you want to be and why?

MBB: I would love to be in Northern England. I have a good friend there, and I'm long overdue for a visit... it's on my to-do list! 

And (drumroll please)... here are the eleven blogs I nominate for a Liebster Award. These are mostly newer blogs that help to promote indie authors. They review books, hold giveaways, and (most importantly) are kind and generous with their time. Everyone has a busy life, and taking time to read and review books requires an enormous commitment. Congratulations bloggers on your nomination!
