11 people I have tagged to receive the Liebster Blog Award: 

My Answers to Andrea’s Qs: 
1. How long have you been blogging?
Since August 2011, so almost a year now...geez where does the time go?
2. What genre do you blog about?
Well I’m trying to be more diverse. So far, I’ve blogged on these genres: historical mystery, Dystopian, contemporary, romance, YA, Paranormal, Fantasy, and the list goes on...and will probably get bigger. 
3. Where are you from?
Southern California :)
4. Do you have any ARCs right now, if so what?
I most recently received two digital copies from Edelweiss, as I will be hosting these two books in upcoming blog tours: The Wild Princess & Something Strange And Beautiful, so thanks to Edelweiss! :)
5. What are you currently reading?
I am reading What If By: Kelly Rae. It’s good so far, very happy. I’m hosting this title on the 24th, this Sunday, so come on by if you’re interested to see my review! 
6. Who is your favorite author of all time?
Hands down, J.K. Rowling. I really think her amazing stories really inspired me to write and read different stories and have a love for reading. 
7. Do you usually read mainstream or indie authors?
I really love both, but lately I have read more stories from Indie authors. I  have to say one of my favorite new series is Thoughtless By: S.C. Stephens. It is just so wonderful! Really. There’s that and the second one is Effortless, and there’s a third that is currently in the works, but seriously, these are so well written. It’s been a month or so since I have read them, so that means I gotta read them again, and this time I will share my reviews, because they are just so awesome, not kidding! 
8. Do you give your books away, run contests with them, or keep them?
Well, I think soon I will do some giveaways. I actually am going to do my own little giveaway; you’ll probably see that as the post above this one. I’m giving away one book and three films, so check it out if you want. 
9. How many books are in your TBR pile?
Hmm a lot. Seriously, a lot.

It’s a tie between Italian and Chinese Food.
