Mystery Blogger Award

Hey everyone! I was nominated for this award by Kimberly over at Nelms Tree Books, and I haven't done one of these types of posts in ages, so I'm super excited about it! Kimberly's blog is gorgeous too, so don't forget to check her out. It was originally created by Okoto!

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog! 
  4. Mention the creator of the award and link their blog too.
  5. Tell the readers 3 things about yourself.
  6. Nominate 10-20 people.
  7. Notify each of the nominees.
  8. Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question, which you must specify.
  9. Share your link to your best post(s).
 3 Things About Me:
  1. I come from the tiny island of Ireland, which is a country I love (despite the accent), but I cannot wait to go abroad and travel the world.
  2. I'm in my final year of college, studying Montessori Education. I love what I'm doing, although I have a dissertation this year too which I don't like at all, haha. However, only four months to go! It's going to fly.
  3. I have made some amazing friends through a shared love of reading, friends I never would've met if it hadn't been for this blog and Goodreads. I'll be forever grateful to books, my blog and Goodreads for being able to have met such amazing people.
Questions from Kimberly:

If you could be a main character of a book, what genre would it be?
 Young Adult Fantasy, the main genre I read. The heroines in those books are always super strong, and end up saving the world while learning something crucial about themselves while also finding the love of their life in the process (usually). It would make my mundane life seem so much more exciting.

What would your super hero power and name be?

 This is a hard one. I saw this on Tumblr, and it's actually so true. You're all expecting me to choose one that's book related, but I'm actually going to use the power to refill things. You know why? Your glass is empty? Refill it without getting up. Bank account empty? Refill it! Person annoying you? Refill their bladder! Absolute genius!
My superhero name? Uhh... Fill-It Girl :P

What is your all time favorite book or series?
I think Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. It got me into reading, I can re-read it numerous times, and my friend is reading it for the first time and I've been staying up late with her the last few nights to help her get through some pretty bad cliffhangers. (Shadow Kiss, anyone?)

 Would you rather have the best plate of food ever or the best dessert? And what would it be?
 Dessert. Hands down. My sweet tooth is the boss of me and I wouldn't have it any other way. I think strawberry pavalova or else chocolate cake.

What is the first book you ever remember reading?
I can't remember the first book I ever read, but I remember my first favourite author was Jacqueline Wilson. I read nearly every one of her books, I loved them so much. I even sent her in a letter once telling her how much I admired her books, but I never got a response :P

Weird question: Dogs or Cats?

 Dogs! All the way! I own two myself, and they're my babies. And they hate cats, so we could never get a cat. I would like to get a cat and a dog together in the future though, and see them become friends, haha.

My Questions:
  1. What is your favourite place to read?
  2. What's the name of the last book you read?
  3. Tea or coffee?
  4. Paper back or Kindle?
  5. Would you go see a movie adaption of your favourite book?

  1. Thanks for the nomination, Sinead! I haven't done this award before so I'm excited to answer your questions! You're from Ireland? That's so cool! I really want to travel as well. I'm from the US and I've traveled around most of the US but I've only gone abroad a handful of times so I definitely want to study abroad or something.
