The Mystery Blogger Award | Book Tag

I have been blogging for just about a year now; if you asked me when I started if I thought I would get an award, I would have definitely thought you were joking.

So thank you to the lovely Kerri @ kerrimcbooknerd for nominating me! ❤

The Mystery Blogger Award was created by Okoto Enigma so bloggers, who have a smaller audience, and “haven’t been discovered yet”!

This is such an amazing thing! And I definitely think awards/book tags similar to this should be done more often. It makes the blogging community such a nice, warm and welcoming place.

Without further or do, let’s get on to this award and book tag!

Mystery Blogger Award” is 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.

Three Things About Myself

  1. I am from the North of the UK! I don’t know a lot of people from here who are just as obsessed with books as I am so I’m always looking for more bookish pals!
  2. I began this blog on Blogspot but moved to WordPress because of the easier communication between bloggers.
  3. I am going to be studying English Literature with Creative Writing at university!

Kerrimcbooknerd’s Questions

01. What is your favourite thing about being a book blogger?

My favourite thing is definitely the bookish pals I’ve made. Before starting a blog, I knew virtually no one who were as passionate as me about characters and books. This changed when I started my blog. So thank you to everyone who has ever talked to me about books or even just left a comment on any of my posts, it means a lot! ❤

02. What are your criteria for DNFing a book? Or do you DNF at all?

Yes, I do DNF. I do also keep this shelf on my Goodreads profile for future reference and for any one who is curious.

My criteria for DNFing a book is if I am not as invested in everything as I thought I would be: not just the characters or the world building; but a combination of these and more. For example, I didn’t DNF Wicked Saints because I loved the concept and wanted to give this chance (which I am very glad I did by the way — thank you Ruthless Gods!)

03. What book world (non-contemporary) do you think you would thrive in?


I mean, I hope so!

04. What are your three favourite tropes and themes?

Since my favourite genre is fantasy, I will list my 3 favourite fantasy tropes:

  • Monster hunting
  • Swords and magic
  • Courts and royalty

05. If you had one magical wish and could make any aspect of being a blogger easier, what would it be?

Ooh, good question!

It took me a while to come up with an answer for this but I think I would go with something to do with images. OOH, I know!

When I insert an image from a URL for the credit to also be inserted.

My Questions

  1. Were you inspired by anyone to start a blog? This can be anyone from family and friends, other bloggers and even YouTubers!
  2. Recommend 5 underrated books that you think deserve more love, recognision and more people to read them.
  3. If you could learn 1 language fluently overnight, which language would you choose?
  4. What is your favourite and least favourite genre to read? And why?
