Mystery Blogger Award Tag @ingstje @keeperofpages @BooksVertigoTea @Choconwaffles @Vicki_CosyBooks


I was nominated by the lovely El over at El’s Book World. Thank you so much!

The Mystery Blogger Award is a tag created by Okoto Enigma as a way for bloggers to connect and find out more about each other and the rules are as follows :

  1. Put the award logo/image in your post.
  2. List all the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
  4. Tell your readers three things about yourself.
  5. Nominate 10-20 people and notify them
  6. Link back to the creator of the award.
  7. Ask nominees any 5 questions of your choice, with a weird or funny question.
  8. Share the link to your best/favourite post of yours.

Three things about myself :

  1. I’m a horrible procrastinator.
  2. I’m a serial pot plant killer. Not on purpose. It’s not like that was my ambition in life.
  3. I don’t own a single pair of shoes. Just boots. And a pair of sneakers. But no shoes.

The questions :

1. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

Tuscany, Italy. The weather, the gorgeous landscape, the language, the people, the food and the wine.

2. If you could trade reading for a year for Β£2 million, would you?

Well, I’d definitely consider it because that would totally pay for my dream home in Tuscany. It seems worth it. Whether I can do it, is another thing.

3. What is your favourite film and why?

I always get weird looks from people when I say this but I don’t really have a favourite and I’m not in the habit of watching a movie more than once, unless it’s something like The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings.

4. If someone were to buy you a gift, what would be the perfect item?

Apart from that dream house in Tuscany? πŸ˜„. A signed copy of a book by Karin Slaughter. Or Stuart MacBride. Or both. Yes, I know, greedy. My bad.

5. What are your interests apart from reading and blogging?

I like to dabble in some amateur photography although it’s been a while and I wage a daily battle against my Netflix addiction because it wreaks havoc on my reading time.

I nominate the following, whose blogs you should definitely check out!

Vicki @ cosybooks

Donna @ Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles

Janel @ Keeper of Pages

Danielle @ Books Vertigo and Tea

Inge @ The Belgian Reviewer

Don’t feel you need to do this if you don’t want to. I promise I won’t be offended!

My questions for the nominees are :

  • If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would that be and why?
  • Who’s your favourite author? The one whose books you automatically pre-order without even knowing what they’re about?
  • Can you think of a character in a book you’d love to invite for dinner?
  • Name five books you’d hope to have with you if you were stranded on an island?
  • You’re going on a road trip but you can only bring music by one artist. Who do you choose?

Thanks again for the nomination, El!

Wishing everyone a happy Wednesday.

    Pot plant killer club!!! I never understood the point of plants as gifts. Why offer me something I have to take care of?? I never asked for it!!! xD You need shoes!!! I’m an addict, I love them! Well, obviously I prefer my books but still! I’ve never been to Tuscany but I have heard it’s beautiful! I need to read Karin Slaughter’s books πŸ˜€ Netflix is so hard to escape…
    Thank you for the tag! I’m using this for my Suntag this week!! xxxxx

      You really do need to read Slaughter’s books! She’s awesome!

      Does our pot plant killer club come with a costume? πŸ€”

    Thanks for tagging me, I have shoes for work only, otherwise it’s strictly trainers and boots for me too!

      My pleasure! Hope you have fun with the questions!

      I had to buy a pair of shoes especially for a wedding last year. Apparently boots weren’t appropriate. Who knew?! πŸ˜„

        I wore heels to a wedding once, I never EVER wear heels, but I thought I’d make an effort, and it was awful, I took them off half way through and changed into converse – apparently that’s not appropriate either πŸ˜‚

    I love plants but it’s hard to keep them alive, I even managed to kill a piece of bamboo once, which should be impossible. I’m not into shoes either, I find it very difficult to find a pair I like, and when I finally pluck up the courage to go shopping I usually can’t decide and come home with 2 or 3 pairs. All I can think then is I’m good for another year or 2 :-). Never been on Netflix and from what I hear, it’s best I stay away :-). Thank you for tagging me, not so easy questions (my favourite author, really, you’re giving me a sleepless night), I’ll see if I can come up with an answer!

      I love plants too but I clearly do something wrong. I was gifted an orchid which died in about two weeks flat. My mother-in-law took it home with her and it’s thriving! I don’t get it!

      Sorry you think the questions are so hard. But I do look forward to seeing your answers!

        Orchids do that, it’s not you or your mother-in-law! You think they are lost to the world but they suddenly revive after a few months, it’s their nap time. Thanks, I’ll try my best

    Great to get to know you… I think I’m a plant killer as well… the only plants that survive in my house are cacti and that’s great because I love a cute and spikey looking cactus! πŸ˜€
    I got a Peace Lily a little while back and it’s a lovely looking plant but it’s starting to die i think, it doesn’t look great… I’ll probably have to replant it into a bigger pot and move it to a different place… anyway… snoozefest! πŸ˜€

    Ha! I’m a no shoe kind of girl as well!!! Boots and sneakers all the way! πŸ˜€ I love the look of shoes but I feel like cow on ice in them, especially ones with heals so I won’t be winning any catwalk awards any time soon… πŸ˜€

    And yes to not watching movies more than once- I seldom watch a movie more than once… the surprise element is gone, and if I liked it before than watching it again 2-3 times would just make it seem boring… the only ones I do watch more than once are the brainless action movies… for example, when I need to see Jason Statham do a shirtless fight scene on a bus against 5 guys… πŸ˜€

    Great tag, enjoyed your answers.. and apologies I went TMI πŸ˜€

    My son is a proud member of the pot plant killing club too. His first plant was down to one leaf when he reached out for help. I’m proud to say it now has two! Lol
    It’s great to get to know you better…may your dreams come true and you get that dream house in Tuscany!!

    Love this haha. And you may be a horrible procrastinator (which is not evident by how well you run this blog!) but I am horrible.. and I do mean horrible with tags 😦 I ask for advance forgiveness if I forget ❀
