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

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.

The Mystery Blogger Award (2)

 

Hey, everyone!

Give it to me to forget that I was nominated twice for this award, which was created by Okoto Enigma. Rheanne @ Rheareads first nominated me back in January. And I thought I’d spread the love (rather late) to other bloggers! I haven’t been around the blogosphere lately. School’s been draining me since it started. And I thought I’d let everyone know I’m still around. I’m not dead. I repeat I’m not dead.

Enjoy, everyone!

Three Things about Me

  1. I don’t like blue jays or peacocks. Other birds I’m fine with. But those? Nope, nope, nope. Those vicious beasts attacked me. The first one dive bombed me, then the other chased me. And now I sound more like Sheldon every day. Wonderful.
  2. I’m clearly camera shy. And if I could avoid getting a picture taken, I’d dive right into a shark tank.
  3. I’ve apologized to the books I’ve damaged. Silly and highly weird. But I feel bad for hurting my babies.

 

Rheanne’s Questions

Why did you start blogging?

I’m an introvert with extrovert tendencies, so I felt compelled to start blogging. And, since I’d love to get into the publishing industry, I also wanted to get experience in the blogosphere.

 

If you were to meet your favourite author, who would it be and what would you do?

I think if I met Leigh Bardugo I’d combust into fangirl flames and horribly die in front of everyone. But I’d be happy for about a second though! More than likely, I’d beg for her to adopt me and to teach me the ways of Kaz Brekker. Both of them are my heroes.

 

What is a popular book (series) you hated?

The 50 Shades of Grey and Twilight series, which I’ve read. And somewhat The Mortal Instruments. Okay, I don’t necessarily hate TMI, but I don’t understand why some of the fans are so cutthroat. I get why some readers hate the series with all the author controversy. But you’re either a fan, a hater, a staunch hater, or a staunch lover. There is no in-between with this series. And I don’t know why people will go out of their way to point of why they love/hate the author or series. Calm down, chicklings.

 

What is your most memorable book blogging moment?

Having Leigh Bardugo talk with me and like my posts. She’s just liked my review of Language of Thorns. I nearly DIED. Well, I’d be happy, but very much dead.

 

What book are you most anticipating for 2017?

Oh, God. Why would you ask that question? That’s like asking me which book I love. Okay. Here’s my list:

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (LOVE this one)

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

Warcross by Marie Lu

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh

A Conjuring of Light by V. E. Schwab

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

 

My Favourite Posts

  1. I loved writing my review on Three Dark Crowns. It was such a great and uniquely dark story, and somehow people loved my review.
  2. My review on Now I Rise was also a great post as well. I’ve just started reading Kiersten’s work, and I was eagerly awaiting to see how Lada, the female Vlad the Impaler, gets her crown back. That woman is more vicious than Hannibal Lecter.
  3. I miss writing my Bookish Finds series, which showcases book-related gifts. Even though it killed my bank account, I loved finding new things to buy.
