The Liebster Award

I am nominated for The Liebster Award!

A huge thank you to Lauren at Always Me for nominating me! I'm not usually tagged or nominated for anything, so when I find out that I'm nominated for something, I get way too excited.
Her blog is really awesome and she always has a lot of interesting things to say in her posts, so check her out!

The Liebster Award is a tag that helps new bloggers be discovered - it's also a great way to get to know the blogger!

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog.
2. Answer the 11 questions the nominator has given you.
3. Tag 11 bloggers who have less than 1000 readers.
4. Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers you have nominated.
5. Let them know you've nominated them through social media or their blog.

Lauren's Questions for me:

1. How do you organize your bookshelves?
I'm currently reorganizing my bookshelves, because I received new bookshelf for Christmas (which I begged for throughout the whole year). I organize my books by hight, then author names. I'm also trying to keep my series on the same shelf and my stand alones on another one.

2. You've been tasked to rewrite a book, which book would it be and why?
I suck at writing, but if I could write, I would have liked to rewrite "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", because of one particular death. Since I don't want this post to be spoilery you can find my answer in The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag (Question 29).

3. What 2016 book release are you most excited for?
I'm really excited for "This Is Where It Ends" by Marieke Nijkamp, which is a debut novel. It sounds really interesting.

4. What group of fictional friends would you like to share a lunch table with?
I would love to share a lunch table with Harry, Ron and Hermione. They are the definition for true friends.

5. If you could recast any classic tv show with modern actors, what show would you choose and what modern actors would you select?
I would never choose modern actors over the initial actors of a TV Show. If I love a TV Show or a movie, I would never want to change the cast for it. Since I never watch a TV Show that I don't love, I have no answer for this question.

6. If you could see any musical group, past or present, which would you want to see and what song would you like to here them perform?
Years & Years, hands down. As for a song - all of them. They can do no wrong. All of their songs are amazing and interesting and I love them.
7. Which hyped book were you most thrilled by?
"Daughter of Smoke & Bone" by Laini Taylor. I honestly don't know why I've been waiting for so long to read this one.

8. Which hyped book were you most disappointed by?
"Divergent" by Veronica Roth. Oh my God, how I hated this series. I didn't like the first book, but everything went downhill after it, which I thought was not possible.
Sorry! Please, don't kill me...

9. What's a book that you love, but isn't very well know?
"Angelhead: My Brother's Descent into Madness" by Greg Bottoms. It's a non-fiction, which may be the reason why it doesn't have so many ratings/reviews on Goodreads. It only has 596 ratings, which is ridiculous. I love this book.

10. What social media website do you prefer?
Goodreads, Facebook and Instagram (does it count?). I don't actually have an Instagram account, but I'm considering creating one. I can literally spend all day there, watching pictures...

11. What 2016 book to movie adaptation are you most excited to see?
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". November is so far away...
