Liebster Award Nomination



Monique from Mo Books nominated me for the Liebster Award. I'd never heard of this before and I'm so happy that Monique thought of me for this.
The Liebster Award is a way to help blogs you like with less than 200 followers, and to give them some deserved attention so our followers can discover them as well.


Rules:
Link back the blogger that tagged you;
Nominate 10 others and answer the questions of the one who tagged you;
Ask 10 questions for the bloggers you nominate;
Let your nominees know of their award.

Monique's questions:

1. What are you currently reading?
Trust by David Moody

2. What is your favourite book of all time?
The Road by Cormac McCarthy, I've read it 3 times and probably will again.

3. How did you come up with your blogs name?
My maiden name is Baker and Bakey was a nickname I was given years ago, I thought it went well along side book blog.

4. Who are your top 3 book boyfriends?
This sounds terrible but I honestly can't think of any, most of the books I read are apocalyptic or psychological thrillers and the male characters in these don't tend to be great boyfriend material hahaha! 

5. Do you have a favourite book quote?
Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again - the first sentence from Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

6. Do you have any of your own personal memes on your blog?
I don't at the moment but would love to start one.

7. If you could meet any author, past or present, who would it be?
Stephen King, I've loved his books since I was a teenager and whenever I see or read interviews with him he comes across as very down to earth.

8. Have you any bookish pet peeves?
Books with really small print and I've got worse about this since getting a kindle. Also books with very old yellow, smelly pages, if I request a book from the library that I want to read and it's in this condition then I can't read it.

9. What are your favourite genres?
Post apocalyptic and psychological thrillers.

10. If you could be a character from any book, travel to any world, who would you be? Where would you go? And (again from any book) who would you bring with you?
Great question! I would be Thursday Next, the literary detective from the Jasper Fforde novels, I would travel to the alternative world the books are set in and bring Miss Marple along with me.


My Questions:

1. How are you today?
2. What are you currently reading?
3. Who is your favourite author?
4. Which genre will you never read?
5. Why did you start your blog?
6. Do you own an ereader?
7. What's your favourite meme that you take part in?
8. Are you a member of a book group?
9. Have you read any books more than once?
10. The last book you gave up on?
