It’s so exciting!!! I’m so excited!!! Thank you so much to Ashley from Creative Whim and Nose Graze for making this upgrade really easy for me and really fast at that as well. I was originally planning to move on the 23rd of March but because Ashley is soooo awesome, she got me all settled in pretty quickly 😀 Thank you, thank you, thank you ASHLEY!!!

Because I have finally moved, I will be publishing my future posts at my new website 😀 I hope to see you all there because that’s where the fun will be from now on!!! Lastly, the current design of the blog is currently a work in progress. I am currently working with Stephanie @ New Chapter Designs in creating a brand new look for Books and Iced Coffee 😀 

Thank you so much for all your support, time and patience!

BOOKS AND ICED COFFEE IS MOVING!!!

So I have the most exciting news!!! I have spontaneously decided to move this precious blog to self-hosted WordPress. Yes! You heard it! Books and Iced Coffee will no longer be under a WordPress subdomain, it will now be it’s own website! I’m so excited!!! I came across Ashley from Nose Graze who just started her own hosting service and I decided to go with her since she offered free transfers for existing blogs to the first 30 customers 😀 It was a $30- value service that I got absolutely free 😀 I was instantaneously satisfied with my decision to move to a self- hosted blog because not only did I receive great service but Ashley is making the move really easy for me.

Booksandciedcoffee.wordpress.com will be moving on March 23,2014 to booksandicedcoffee.com!!! Books and Iced Coffee will also be getting a new facelift. So yeah- let’s see how that goes!

I’m soooo happy that this is finally taking place. I hope you all will continue to visit my blog and check out all the things that I have for you. Thanks guys!!!

The Liebster Blog Award!

liebster4

OMG! I can’t believe it! This was such a surprise for me 😀 Lots of thanks to bookwormstothemax for nominating me for the Liebster Award! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This is an award where you recognize fellow bloggers and help people discover new blogs.

Rules:

  • You must link back to the person who linked you
  • Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new bloggers and come up with 11 new questions to ask
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • You must let the person you nominated know you nominated them

Here are the questions that I was asked:

What is your number 1 bookish dream (meeting a character/author, being a character in a book, and etc.)?

I have always wanted to be a character in Harry Potter! But since the books and movie franchise are complete, meeting J.K. Rowling would be so awesome!

If you could have any power what would you choose?

To teleport anywhere at any time 🙂

Who is the one author you want to meet the most?

J.K. Rowling!!!

What’s your favorite childhood book(s)?

Harry Potter By J.K. Rowling; The Adventures of Alex Rider By Anthony Horowitz; The Private series by Kate Brian; Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events 😀 And many more for sure!

If you could have lunch with one character (from book/TV show/movie etc…) who would you choose?

Oh man, this is a hard question because there are so many characters that I would LOVE to have lunch with. I would have to go with Celena Sardothien from Throne of Glass By Sarah J. Maas. She is such a strong female protagonist that I would love to meet and dine with. She could probably teach me a thing or two about being an assassin and kicking ass 😀

What’s your favorite quote?

My favorite quote would have to be from Hershel Greene from The Walking Dead:

You walk outside, you risk your life. You take a drink of water, you risk your life. Nowadays you breath and you risk your life. You don’t have a choice. The only thing you can choose is what you’re risking it for.

Where do you want to travel to the most?

NEW YORK!!! Being on an island all my life and being young, I still crave for a legit city life. This will probably change once I get there 😀

Favorite book for this year so far?

This is so HARD!!! I’m torn between The Guardian Society by J.D. Kirkland, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’m so sorry I can’t choose, I’m going to have to go with those three. They are all my top one reads for the year thus far.

What fandoms are you part of?

Hahaha, where do I even begin?! Harry Potter, Supernatural, the Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, The Lord of The Rings, and I’m starting to get into the BBC Sherlock Holmes fandom.

Do have any OTPs and if so who? (Can be from TV show/book/etc…)

Ok before I start with this, I would like to say that the OTPs listed on here are based on my personal views and feels, again, these are based on my PERSONAL views and feels. Let’s get started 😀 FIRST OTP! Harry and Hermione, Celena and Dorian, and Juliette and Warner 😀

Who is your favorite character? Why?

Celena Sardothien!!! Because she is a kick ass assassin with a very brave and admirable character!!! BOOM!!!

Again, thank you so much to bookwormstothemax for nominating me for the Liebster Award! I’m so so happy that I actually received the honor 😀 Off to my nominations 😀
