1.) Who is your ultimate fictional boyfriend/girlfriend?

There’s so many and so few all at the same time. Ummmmmmmm. I think I’d have to go with Dean Winchester because I had a fictional crush on him for the longest time ever.

If we’re talking BOOK fictional boyfriend, I might have to go with George Weasley….or maybe Fred Weasley. I loved both the twins a lot when I read through Harry Potter. Is it so wrong to love both?

2.) If you could speak any language (fictional languages included), which language would you speak?

It’s really a tie between Tolkien Elvish and Dothraki, probably more towards the Elvish….I’m a big Middle-Earth fan. Although I do have a Dothraki language book so realistically I can speak that easier since I have a guide…I’m just kind of lazy.

3.) Do you let people borrow your books?

Sometimes. It really depends on the person, if I know they love books and respect people’s property I’ll lend them some because I know they’ll be taken care of. Other than that though, hell no. In high school I lent a book to a classmate that wasn’t a close friend and my book got trashed, that’s when I really learned my lesson.

4.) Approximately how many books do you physically own?

Physically you say? Hm, excuse me while I refer to Goodreads instead of actually counting said books….

Physical Book Estimation: Around 179, and that’s not including my boxes of hand-me-down books from my mother or my countless Nancy Drew books as well as random non-fiction books. So if we added all of those you’re looking at maybe 250. Maybe.

Freebie, Nook/Kindle Owned Books: About 52

5.) Which genre do you read the least?

Romance and or contemporary. Sorry I just can’t do it, I’m a very un-romancey person. I like fantasy where I can hide in fictional worlds instead of facing the sometimes boring reality of the real-world.


Except you know…with books instead of sand.




Plus I just really don’t like romances and reading about real-life problems. It’s boring. Why read about that when I can read about DRAGONS and shit?

6.) If you could have any job in the world, what would it be and why?

I reject your reality and substitute it with my own, I’d want to be the Dovahkiin. That’s definitely a job. The job is ridding Tamriel of dragons, well…..bad dragons. Like Alduin, and pretty much whooping ass.

7.) What is one book you refuse to read?

This is an easy question, while there are books I don’t want to read but still consider there is definitely ONE book I will never read.

“Fifty Shades of Grey”

8.) And the most controversial question of the century: pancakes or waffles?

Hands down, pancakes. I don’t even know why, it’s just the way it is.

    Love your answers! Who doesn’t like Dean Winchester? He’s the best. And so are the Weasley twins. 😀
    Thanks for doing this award!

      Thanks for nominating me Jessica, I had a lot of fun with your questions! And yes I have yet to hear anyone say they don’t like Dean or the Weasley twins! 🙂

    I love both Fred and George as well – I just can’t imagine them without another! ❤
    I would LOVE to know (and speak) Tolkien Elvish! I have been a big Middle-Earth fan since I was very young and I have always wanted to speak that language. Especially as I was quiet obsessed with Elves in general. 😀
    I would also go with pancakes, though I have no idea why. XD Thank you for nominating me!

      Yes I agree! I love them both, it was the most heart-breaking thing about The Deathly Hallows for me 😦

        Yes! It was the saddest and most heartbreaking thing in all the books for me! 😦

    I loved your answers (Oh Dean Winchester…*swoons*)! Thanks so much for the tag 😀 Also, you are totally NOT missing out on anything with 50 Shades, in fact, you’re lucky that the writing and horrendous encounters aren’t burned into your brain forever. I tried to read it because a friend of mine badgered me to no end, and so decided to read it to analyze how bad it was. I made it to page 50 before I LITERALLY PHYSICALLY COULD NOT READ ANOTHER WORD. It was horrible. (Granted, I don’t really enjoy erotica reading anyway, but IT WAS BAD OH LORD.)

        Haha, yes! It was terrible. I could rant for days on how bad everything about it is! 😛


  4. TheQuirkyBookNerd February 29, 2016 / 5:08 am

    Ahh yes! You’re answers are perfect! I keep forgetting about Fred and George whenever I get a book crush question. I gotta remember them!
    I really want to be able to speak Dothraki. Also, that gif totally gave me all the feels 😥
    Your owned book count made me briefly feel better because mine is around that…and then you made me remember that I hadn’t counted any of my massive collection of Nancy Drew books…I need to move to a bigger place. Or maybe just construct a house of books to live in. On a random Nancy Drew side note, have you ever played any of the video games?
    I want to fight dragons too! Can we be Dragonborns together?! The Dovahkiin Duo! 😀
    Hell yes, pancakes for the win! Though I don’t know why either…waffles are quite good. But there’s just something about pancakes… 😀
    Fifty Shades of Nope. Just no. Never. No. Uh uh.
    Great post as always, Heather! Thank you for nominating me! 😀 ❤

        …It’s ok, I won’t tell anyone. Haha 🙂


    • thesassygeek March 2, 2016 / 3:46 pm

      Firstly I’d like to say I love these long comments, haha! Quick question for you now: My book count made you feel better because you feel like you don’t have a lot or you have waaay too many? And yes I actually started playing the Nancy Drew games in 3rd grade before I read the books and I was addicted! Addicted, I tell you! I should actually go buy some of the new ones now……And yes we can be the Dovahkiin Duo, I love that soooo much! 🙂


      • TheQuirkyBookNerd April 13, 2016 / 1:26 pm

        Long comments are my forte! Ummm…well…way too many…haha! 😀 But you can never have too many books, right? Ahh that’s so awesome! I actually don’t know anyone else who has played them. I started playing around then too, when I was like 8 or 9, and I’ve been completely addicted ever since! Which game is your favorite? Definitely pick up some of the new ones if you get the chance. My overall favorites are mostly older ones, but there have been some really great ones in the last few years.
        Yay! Then we are officially the Dovahkiin Duo: the awesome, dragon slaying, and all around badass protectors of Tamriel! …Okay, it’s been confirmed…I am the biggest nerd ever. 😛

        Oh no picking a favorite?! Haha. That’s tough but I think my favorite has to be Treasure in the Royal Tower, that was my first one ever too. (I would say Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake but when I was younger I got too scared of said ghost dogs to continue) I’m dying to get some of the new games too, the nostalgia would be great haha. Also that is probably the coolest thing anyone has ever said to me haha so then we can both be the biggest nerds ever 🙂

        Treasure in the Royal Tower! ❤ Yes! And Ghost Dogs is fantastic too. I got so freaked out when I first played it! That part at the beginning the night Nancy first gets there and they attack the house? Little Ari couldn't handle that! Haha 😛
        I'm glad someone appreciates/shares my utter Skyrim nerdiness! 😀

        Yes that’s the part! I squeezed the crap out of my cat when that happened, he wasn’t pleased! 🙂
