The Mystery Blogger Award (3)

Morning, everyone!

This week has been hellish. I’ve pushed back so many posts. But once again, an award nom has saved me. I wanted to work on my next review, but writer’s block has hit me hard. Rosanna from Reading in the Garden nominated me. I want to thank her for thinking of me! We’ve recently started following each other, and I am always excited to see what she has next on her blog.

So why don’t you send her some love before you get to my post. You won’t be disappointed.

The Liebster Award (3)

Morning, my book fam!

How do you start off a new week? Do an award post! I truly do not deserve all this love, but I thank every single one of you. For the past month, I’ve been missing in action. A lot of stress with the government, a stolen credit card, and other personal matters kept me away from my blog, so I’m trying to catch up with all of your posts and comments!

Ally from Ally Writes Things nominated me for my third Liebster Award, and I am so thrilled for that. Thank you, Ally! So head over to her blog, then come back here. 😉

Mystery Blogger Award (Take 2)

 

I need to catch up on my posts sitting in my draft pile, or I’ll never get to them. Don’t you hate that? Anyways, Sara from Bibliophagist nominated me a long while ago, and I thought today is the best day to finally get to award. Thank you, Sara!

What Is the Mystery Blogger Award?

It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion. – Okoto Enigma

  • You have to nominate 10 – 20 people
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify)

  1. Addressing Sexual Assault in YA Books
  2. Badass Female Leads Deserve Equal Respect as Males
  3. Support Bloggers of Minorities and with Disabilities

Three Facts about Me

  1. I have horrible stage fright. I cannot for the life of me do presentations without wanting to throw up. My speech impediment, which isn’t noticeable anymore, turned me this way.
  2. I’m afraid of getting a bad sore throat. When I was young, I kept getting tonsillitis, and for a good year, I was put in antibiotics until I went in for the surgery. Since then, I freak out when I get it.
  3. I have a thing for threes. So I arrange things in three, I buy things in three (except for books, or I’d be broke).

Sara’s Questions

What’s your favorite mythical creature?

Dragons! Hands down, I adore dragons. I cannot get enough of them.

What’s your go-to order at a coffee shop?

I love getting muffins, especially chocolate chip or blueberry. And I usually finish it off with a cold lemonade.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

I have so many places, but I’d love to live in Alaska. But I’m not sure if I’d love the bugs though.

Sweet, salty, or sour snacks?

I like all three, actually. But I prefer the first two though.

Would you rather say everything on your mind or never speak again?

HA, one thing you’ll learn quickly of me is that I do not have a filter, so I clearly say whatever is on my mind. However, if I become too quiet, especially if I’m angry, that’s when you should be concerned.

Brittany’s Questions

How many pets do you have? If you don’t have any, do you want some? (Pictures always appreciated!!!)

I currently have one. He looks after me when I sick or sad. He makes my mornings better (and louder since we have yelling matches 😂). And he gave me hope when I needed it the most.

What was the last movie you saw in the theatre?

Venom! I went into the theatre, thinking I’d hate the movie. But I enjoyed it, especially the elevator scene.

What is your favourite book trope?

Enemy-to-lovers and villains doing good things/heroes doing terrible acts

What is your least favourite book trope?

Burying gay characters. Please, authors, stop doing this. Sure, you can put them in dangerous situations, but at least give them a fighting chance, especially if they’re the only gay person.

Coffee or Tea?

I can’t stand either. I hate the smell and the taste of coffee, and tea sometimes tastes like potpourri. 😂 And yes, it takes me a while to wake up.

What is your favourite Genre and why?

I love high fantasy. I love exploring different worlds that don’t match our own.

What is your favourite type of blog post to write?

I love writing book tags. I get to understand my followers and the bloggers I follow more.

What is your favourite type of blog post to read?

Lists and discussion posts! I always find new books to read with the former.

If you were given $30 to spend on a book today, what book would you buy?

Either Nevernight or the collector’s edition of Six of Crows.

Would you be excited or weary if you found out your favourite book was being made into a movie?

I have two series that will be turned into a movie and a TV show. I’m nervous as hell right now!

Are there any songs that make you think of certain books or scenes from books? If so, which songs/books?

Seven Devils by Florence + the Machine reminds me of A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars reminds me of the Red Queen series.


My Questions

  1. If there is one trope you could get rid of, which is it?
  2. Which is a problematic book/series you love?

Taylor’s Questions

What is one of your favourite book quotes?

“I will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.” —Inej, Six of Crows

If you won a free plane ticket anywhere in the world where would it take you and what is the FIRST thing you’d do there?

Scotland. I want to see where my family originated from.

What is your favorite underrated/under reviewed book?

What celebrity would cause death by fangirling if you got to meet them on the street?

I think I would die happy if I saw Tom Hiddleston dressed up as Loki. I’d pet him before I let myself die though.

What is your favorite 2018 read — so far?

I LOVE MY LITTLE DARK BABIES

What is the last band you saw in concert?

HA. I’ve been to only two concerts, so I’ll say Jack’s Mannequin.

What’s the last book that made you cry?

I’m getting to the good stuff, and I’m all weepy. Someone smack me, please. 😭

What’s the current most played track on your Spotify/Apple Music/iTunes playlist? No cheating! 

You may laugh at this, but it’s the Avengers: Infinity War teaser trailer track.

If you were going to get a tattoo based off a book what would you get and why?

I would take a quote from the Throne of Glass series. I never thought I’d relate to a character as much as I do with Aelin.

What’s your favorite meal? Your go-to dinner if money wasn’t an option. 

There was an old pizza joint in town. And it made the best panzerotti I’ve ever tasted. You don’t know how much money I’d spend just to have another bite of it.

Who’s your fictional crush and who would you cast IRL to play them?

*crushes (help me)

Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles. Honestly, I’d be perfectly fine commandeering stuff and flying around the Earth. 😂
