Okoto Enigma (the creator of the award)

I have no idea why Surina @ Book Reviews by the Bloggisters thinks I deserve this Mystery Blogger Award (ingenious posts, my blog captivates and inspires?!! Are you sure you got the right person?! *lol*) but I’ll forever be thankful for that nomination! =)) To say this was unexpected would be putting it mildly! You are amazing and I hope you know that! ❤ Well, if not you definitely do it now, right?! ;-P

Three Things About Myself I Feel You Need to Know

  • I’m a family person and love my slightly crazy family to bits and pieces! ❤
  • I have a fascination for Gaelic and tend to give people Gaelic nicknames. ;-P
  • Mhmm what else? I need my coffee to function properly. I swear a morning without coffee is no good morning at all. *lol*

The Questions

What is your favorite book and why? (I’ll give cookies to anyone who says Six of Crows!)

Am I supposed to say “Six of Crows” now? XD (Come to the dark side, we’ve got cookies? *lol*) Well, it’s definitely one of my favourite books but if I had to decide for just one book (that’s such a cruel question btw because seriously, how can a book worm only have one favourite book? *lol*) I’d decide for “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. As to the why: It was the first book I read that completely blew me away. The characters are so amazing and complex that I couldn’t help but fall in love with them and gosh Dorian Gray… I just love his ruthless innocence. You’ll have to read the book in order to find out what I’m talking about but I’m sure it will be worth it. 😉

Why did you decide to start blogging?

That’s a really good question and there were many reasons that brought me to this point of my life. I always loved to read but for some reason it never occurred to me to actually write about my reading experiences. Well, at least not until I joined goodreads about 1 ½ years ago and saw the amazing reviews of other people. I was always very passionate about books so I decided to give it a go and to write about the books I read. To be entirely honest I never would have thought that people would actually enjoy what I write. I’m still blown away by the sheer amount of friends and people who like my reviews on goodreads. Their support is just incredible! ❤ As to the why I finally started a blog? I’ve toyed with the idea for a year now but wasn’t sure if people would be interested in it. Well, they are (obviously) but that’s still not the final reason I started to make my own blog. That one is so simple it probably will make you laugh. Are you ready? Okay, here I go: I hated it that I always blew up the word limit on goodreads and could never write down everything I wanted to say. *lol* I definitely don’t have that problem on my own blog now! ;-P

What is the weirdest combination of food you’ve ever eaten? (This is supposed to be the weird and funny question. Keyword: supposed to.)

Mhmm… I had to think hard about that one but I’m pretty sure it might have been a pizza my sister and I once created. XD We wanted something different and savoury so we decided for weird toppings. In the end we ate pizza with tomato sauce, cheese, ham, salami, cranberries and pears. And before you ask: YES, it was good! =)))

What is number one on your bucket list?

Phew… that’s a really tough question. I think it might be a trip to Australia and New Zealand. It’s really unlikely that I’ll ever get there but I wanted to see it ever since I turned 13. We had an exchange teacher who came from there and whenever we had some spare time he told us about his home. He lived in Australia but he also visited New Zealand quite often and his stories were so vivid and wonderful I wanted to see those places too. Let’s hope I’ll manage to get there one day! =)

What is one thing that irks you to no end?

Injustice. I swear nothing gets me as angry as that. I just can’t stand it! No matter if it happens in a book or in real life I can’t help but want to set it right. XD Guess that’s the hidden Gryffindor in me?! *lol*

That’s kinda tough because I just started to blog but I’ll still try my best. 😉

  2. ahhh thank you so much for this nomination, Virginia !! I always love seeing you around on Goodreads and I’m so happy you’ve created this blog as well❤️ also I haven’t read The Picture of Dorian Gray but if it’s your favorite, I’m definitely going to have to add it to my TBR!

    1. You’re very welcome! 😉 And I feel the same way about your presence on here and goodreads. It’s always nice to read your reviews and thoughts! ❤ Aww, let me know what you thought about it! I'm planning to reread it next year because it's been way too long I last read it. XD

  3. Aww, thanks so much for nominating me! And I swear I really am coming back in January 😀 I’ve even been motivated to write posts lately (even since I took the pressure of and said I was going on a hiatus lol), so I’ll have some written ahead of time – in fact I’ll probably write my post for this later today 🙂 🙂

    That pizza sounds… interesting. I admit, if I didn’t hate cranberries and salami, I think it would actually be okay 😂
    Much better than pizza with cheese and sauce and M&M’s probably. Which no, I did not eat, but my dad lost a bet and had to eat it, and it looked quite disgusting. And naturally, it was what my brain went to when I heard about strange pizza toppings 😂😂

    And wow I was so surprised to see you’d only been on Goodreads for a year and a half! You were already so established on there when I joined last year, and your reviews are so great, I totally thought you’d been on there for much longer!

    Also your blog is wonderful, and one hundred percent deserves this award! ❤️❤️

    1. YAY! That’s good to hear! Sometimes it just needs a little break to get back in the game! 😉 The pressure is real! >_<

      I could live with cheese and sauce but M&M's? *lol* Must have tasted strange! Your poor dad! XD Let's hope he won't lose any bet soon! Haha!

      Really?! O_o Yes, I joined at the beginning of July 2017 so it's not even a total 1 1/2 years yet. And to read this warms my heart! ❤ The goodreads community was so welcoming and accepting that it was easy to become established. 🙂 I'm glad you enjoy reading my reviews and that you also like my blog! That really means a lot to me! ❤ ❤

      AND you deserve the award too! Can't wait to read your answers! 😉

  4. I love all your replies!! Also, your weird food sounds actually kind of good? Now I want to eat it!

    ALSO you’re Gryffindor?! I’m pretty much everything but Gryffindor. But I loved your answer to the last question, it was beautiful and I agree with you entirely.
