     I could only come up with 9 nominees, because that was the amount of people I follow that have under 200 followers. I also have a feeling that some of them may be over 200 followers now, but when I picked them out 3 days ago they didn't so I am still counting them.

The Eleven Questions from Kelly.
1. A free book or free movies for a week?
A free book.

2. Do you take notes while you read? 
Yea and no. When I finish a book I start a post for the review and list out the pros and cons for that book. So, if I can't write the review that day I can read that list and remember all my thoughts about the book.

3. What standalone book and book series do you think everybody should read?
I think everybody should read the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, because it is an awesome series. The standalone would have to be Splintered by A G. Howard. Right now its a standalone and its great.

4. Why did you start blogging?
Mainly because I wanted someone to talk to about books. No one in my family reads YA so there is no one to talk to.

5. How fast do you read? (How many books a day?)
If I have nothing else to do that day and I really like the book, I can read a 350 page book in one day.

6. What makes you hate a book character? If you have the power to kill off any book character, who would it be?
If you are talking about a villain, I hate them if they are really evil and don't care who they hurt. If you talking about just a character in general then it has to be if their selfish and small minded. the character I would kill would be all the Dukes in Sweet Evil.

7. What is your favorite book genre and why?
High Fanesy, because I love all the worlds you get to read.

8. What is your favorite quote from a book?
I don't have one, because I don't really focus on quotes.

9. Who is your #1 book boyfriend?
#1 book boyfriend, oh this is hard........ Daemon form Obsidian or Kia from Sweet Evil..or maybe.
10. What are one of your weird book hobbies? (Example: smelling the book before you read, reading only when you're sitting down, etc.)
I am a page bender. When I am reading I just do it without realizing it most of the time.

11. If I hand you $100, what books will you buy with that much money?
I would buy some sequels that haven't been released in paperback yet. Like Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, Scarlet by Merissa Meyer, and Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver.

The questions from Jackie

1. If you could live in any book, what would it be?
I would want to live in the world of Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. Its just one of the coolest world I have ever read.

2. Top 5 cheap book stores (paper or ebook)
I can't answer this, because the nearest bookstore is Barnes & Noble and that is about 30 miles away from my house. So, I have looked for other stores, but there is no other stores.

3. Idea of a perfect date and with which of your book boyfriends?
What I think would be so sweet would be if he surprised me one day and told me he was taking me on a date. And He wouldn't tell me where he was taking me and we end up in a book store. Wouldn't that be sweet??

4. What kind of person would you be in a book? (hero, best friend, shy, know it all)
I would be the best friend to the hero, just because I wouldn't be the hero.

Having my own bookstore.

Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins, Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Throne of Glass 2 by Sarah J. Maas.

I one time checked out 15 books in one haul, but they weren't all YA I was doing a research project and my teacher wanted me to have more books for the source.

8. Top 3 Authors and what books put them in your top 3?
Wendy Higgins, Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Tahereh Mafi,

I don't really know what you mean by plastic, so I will say paper.
