Liebster Blog Award

I've been tagged a second time for this award from wonderful author Rob Pruneda, and below are my answers to his questions. You can find his original posting here.

  1. What is the best book you read in 2012? I didn't read much this year, but the book that stands out to me most is Clockwork Angels, the book adaption of RUSH's newest album. 
  2. What is the best movie you watched in 2012? 2012 is the best year I've experienced movie wise. Jack Reacher tops my list, but Skyfall, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Amazing Spider-Man come close.
  3. What is the worst movie you saw in 2012? Definitely "The Grey." What's the point of watching a movie when you know everyone is going to die except for Liam Neeson? I guessed the end from the start, not to mention that, but it was just gory and over the top...AND unrealistic. 
  4. If you could change one thing in 2012, what would it be? I wouldn't change anything. It was a great year, and everything happens for a reason. 
  5. Was there anything in 2012 that you always wanted to do and finally did? Was there anything in 2012 that you wanted to do, but just missed out on? I always wanted to see Van Halen live. I missed out on seeing Duran Duran, due to health issues of Nick Rhoades. 
  6. Did you make any resolutions for 2012? If so, how many of those did you actually fulfill? Me neither! :-) What's the point of making a resolution about something you'll forget about in two weeks? Haha. 
  7. Do you know anyone who actually (really) believed that the world was going to end on Dec. 21, 2012? Yes, unfortunately I did. 
  8. Did you try anything new or learn a new skill in 2012? If so, what was it and what inspired you to try it or learn how to do it? Well, I always wanted to get into drumming, and it finally happened this year. I always liked drums (the way they look, sound, the power) and since I listened to classic rock (and my dad's a drummer) I decided to get into it.
  9. What was the most difficult challenge you faced in 2012? By far finishing and publishing my second book. Editing took months and was getting very annoying, but the end result was the best I could make it and I'm proud to say it. 
  10. What was your greatest achievement in 2012? Publishing my second book. 
  11. Now, look back to the year 2012. In one word, how would you describe it overall? Fantabulastic.


  1. Thanks for participating, even though you had already been tagged before. Great answers! I particularly love the answer to No. 11. I say "awesome" way too much, so maybe I'll trow in a "fantabulastic" around every once in a while.

    Happy New Year, Spencer! And congratulations on publishing your second book.

  2. You're welcome, I enjoyed it. Thanks, you too!
