Liebster Award (again)

First of all, congratulations to JeffO and cestlavie22, who correctly answered the question I posed last post. Which British author invented the paperback novel, the serial and coined the term 'cliff-hanger'?  It was Charles Dickens. JeffO and cestlavie22, if either of you would like to do a guest post on my blog, or an interview, etc, let me know and it can be arranged. 

Next up, EJ has given me the Liebster Award. I've already received this once so I'm not going to pass it on again, because it will just be the same people, but I will do the questions thing...

Rules (not all of which will be followed): 
1. Bloggers nominate other up-and-coming bloggers (with less than 200 followers) for the award.
2. If you receive the Liebster, you must:
- Tell 11 random things about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions the nominator has asked you.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers and make sure you notify them.

11 Random Facts: 
1. I'm a little obsessed with anime. 
2. I know how to party both with and without alcohol. (I prefer with.) 
3. I write a lot. Duh. 
4. I am currently watching some talk-show where the guest on stage and a lot of members in the audience are signing instead of talking... in different accents.
5. I spent yesterday reading the names off the map that shows different Aboriginal groups/languages that's on a wall at the school my mum works at while I was waiting for her to stop talking to her teacher-friends in there.
6. Controversial humour is my favourite.
7. iPhones make me feel dizzy, but other smartphones don't.
8. If I could have a superpower, I'd be able to set things on fire.
9. I'm a bit of a pyromaniac. At least... I like fire.
10. I prefer real books to Kindles and e-readers.
11. I'M PUMPED TO HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO MY UNIVERSITY OF PREFERENCE! WOOO!!!!!! (I had to save the best one for last :D )

Questions from the nominator:

Who is your favorite blogger?
I don't like picking favourites, but JeffO never fails to make his blogposts entertaining and interesting :)  

Where are you from?
Australia. Or as we tend to pronounce it, 'Straya'. 

What social media sites do you have?
Facebook and Blogger. 

What do your think about yourself?
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." Marilyn Munroe quotes for the win. 

Who inspires you the most?
How do I answer this question? Tim Burton? William Shakespeare? Patrick Rothfuss? P!nk? 

What is your life motto?
Live as if you'll die tomorrow. Dream as if you'll live forever. 

Favorite city?

Describe your style?
Style? What's that? I have style? I'm probably the most miss-matched, dorkiest... you get it. 

What is the first thing that you put in your bag?

What are you reading at the moment?
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. 

Well like I said, I'm not going to pass the award on because that takes too much effort... But if you have less than 200 followers and want to be given the Liebster Award, then I CHOOSE YOU! 

- Bonnee. 


  1. Yay, yay, yay! Congratulations on the university acceptance! That is such fabulous news! :)

  2. First off, HUUUUUUGE congratulations on getting into your top choice university! What an exciting time for you, though no doubt stressful. Here in the States, you usually know where you've been accepted about 2 or 3 months before the end of senior year, so you get to 'coast' (not) through the end of the year. Again, congratulations and have fun getting ready. This is the one that takes you away from home, right? How's your mom handling it?

    Second, thanks for the shout-out and kind words. I'll be happy to do a guest post for you if you would like (I figure I'm probably more interesting right now as a guest poster than an interview subject). Give me a topic and I'll get on it. You can either shoot me an e-mail or let me know here. I should have it done in, oh, three or four months.

    1. Mum is handling it pretty well. At least, she's accepted that it's happening. I WISH we found out two or three months before the end of the year. I mean, it's still a month an a bit away from when we actually have to start but I'd LOVED to have known sooner...

      I'll think of a guest-post topic, though I'll warn you now that it will probably be a really typical sort... I'll let you know :)

  3. Congrats on your award AND your acceptance!
    Anime is great

    1. Thanks so much Lynda :)

      Yay! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so!

  4. Big congrats Bonnee, for being accepted to your university. I guess you start a new phase in your life pretty soon. Most university have Students' Newspaper. It'll be a good experience for you to join the newspaper as a reporter, editor ect. Just curious about your answer to the question Who Inspires you the most? is that Pink the singer in your response? I love her song "Family Portrait" and others songs.

    1. I will definitely be looking into any newspapers, magazines and other writing-related nooks I can access through the university. I'm hoping there is a writer's circle or something I'll be able to join :) And yes, I do mean P!nk the singer. I have a copy of at three of her albums and listen to a lot more of her music online. She is amazing. My favourite would probably be 'Sober'.

  5. I actually got it right? Wo hoo! My English professors would be proud! Congrats on the award that is a real honor :)

    1. Haha your English professor SHOULD be proud! If you'd like the opportunity to make a guest post or interview on my blog, just let me know and we can sort something out.


Have your say.
