Mystery Blogger Award #5

Mystery

I was tagged by the super talented Consu @ Paper-Eyed Girl.  Consu is a fellow athletic book blogger so I always get super excited to talk sports  and books with her! (she plays Hockey!!)

Rules:

  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Thank whoever nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  3. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link to their blog as well. (Maggie @ okoto enigmas blog)
  4. Tell your readers three things about yourself.
  5. Nominate 10-20 people.
  6. Notify your nominees.
  7. Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice, specifying one weird/funny question.
  8. Share a link to your best post(s)

3 Things About Myself:

  • My mom had knee replacement surgery this morning so I am writing this in the post op recovery room while my mom is sleeping.  Her surgery went well! But I never imagined myself writing a blog post sitting in the hospital.

  • I get a lot of compliments about how long my hair is (Its super blonde and goes most of the way down my back) but I hate having long hair and the only reason I haven’t cut it off is because I want it long for my wedding.

  • I don’t do a lot with my hair.  I have done Locks of Love 4 times.  I usually get it cut short and then let it grow wild until it starts to annoy me then I chop it all off and start again.  Day-to-day I usually just pull it back in a braid or pony tail. These are pictures from the last time I cut my hair almost 3 years ago:

 

Consu’s Questions:

1) You can erase a book from history, it just never happened, which one do you choose?

I should probably choose something noble like Mien Kampf, but I am selfish so I would choose Lord of the Flies!

2) Suddenly you find yourself owning Netflix, which book/s would you turn into a series?

Oh, this one is tough.  My first thought is Pride and Prejudice but there is already a good TV show version of that so I wouldn’t need to re-make it.  Hmmm probably Uprooted or Harry Potter!

3) A character you’d throw down a cliff (they don’t necessarily die but it hurts)

Snape!

4) A character so good you wouldn’t mind if they throw you off a cliff

Pretty much any animal or child.

5) Five key words in a blurb that will make you read a book

I don’t really have a set of 5 keywords but I love anything fantasy with strong females who can kick ass!!!

My Best Posts:

My Questions:

  1. If you could pick one item from any book to own what would it be? (examples: A Wand from Harry Potter, Kell’s Cloak from A Darker Shade of Magic, Flying Carpet from Aladdin, etc)
  2. Do you subscribe to any subscription boxes? If so, which ones? (Doesn’t have to be book related)
  3. What is your favorite kind of Candy?
  4. What is your favorite mythical creature?
  5. Do you have a bookstagram?  If so what are some of your favorite pictures that you have taken? If not, you can still share any pictures you have taken that you are proud of!

I Nominate:

  1. Sophril Reads
  2. Books In Bloom
  3. The BoookWorm Drinketh

As always, don’t feel obligated to participate! But if you do let me know so I can check out your answers!!!

  1. Athletic book bloggers assemble!
    We are so alike! I agree with all your answers (except lord of the flies because I haven’t read it)
    I actually looove having long hair, mine is curly so I usually have to tie it down so know a thousand different types of braids.
    Hope your mom gets well soon!

    1. Woop Woop! Unite! haha 😂

      My hair has hit the length were it keeps getting caught between my hand and the ball when I am throwing so I wind up yanking my hair and it hurts really bad! So I like the way it looks but I hate dealing with it! I can do 4 kinds of braids (single french, double french, reverse french, and fishtail) and none of them are fancy and I am not that good at them so they always come loose!

      Thanks!

      1. Wait, whats double french?
        I have to braid my hair tightly so it fits under my hekmet and doesn’t get out… the good thing about my kind of hair is that once I put it in place it stays there, so im lucky there

      2. Double french probably isn’t the right name haha. Its just two french braids one on each side of my head. I have a lot of fine hair and it gets very wispy so it doesn’t stay unless the braid is SUPER tight but I can never get it tight enough (my mom can tho!)

  2. It’s hard NOT to be selfish when it comes to the book-undo question. I wouldn’t do Mein Kampf either because I’ve never read it and wouldn’t even think of it. I’d do The Iron Flower. It’s not even out yet and it STILL makes me frustrated when I think about it.

      1. I got an advanced copy from the publisher. I HATE getting ARCs that I hate because I have to write a review and I don’t like writing really negative ones. The protagonist just drove me up the wall. She’s TOO perfect. Naïve, always does the “right” thing, and yet she’s made the victim as well because everyone hates her for no reason. And then the love interest has zero personality. He just stands in a corner, all broody and handsome, pushing the protag away and yet wanting her at the same time. There’s a guy in it that I really liked, and I’m hoping he’ll become the love interest; he has more dimension. If that happens, and if the MC stops emulating Bambi, then I may hop back on board.

    1. Thanks 😀 It would be interesting! They could make it Seven seasons long with each season being a book! I like the way my long hair looks but it is annoying and I don’t dress up often enough to want to keep it long haha.

  3. Woot, Congrats!! So, I have always had long hair and I just cut mine this past June. I donated 14 in. to Wigs 4 Kids. Anyways, I always get really sad when I cut it but this time, I felt great because I donated. haha. I love your hair short, it’s so cute! When is your wedding? Do you have to wait out the hair too much longer?

      1. Thank you! I think I’m going to do the same. I usually just have it long and get it trimmed. I’m going to just grow it out and then donate. It’s growing so fast with the prenatals. 😀

  4. Harry Potter as a series would be amazing!! Maybe a prequel? Like with Lily, James, Sirius, Peter and Lupin as teens? I’d love to read or see something like that.

    Congrats on the award!! 😀 and a speedy recovery to your mom!!

  5. Hope your mom’s recovery goes well. I know two people that had knee replacements recently and what they can do now days is amazing! Both my friend’s mom and my boss recovered really fast (although my boss milked it and stayed home extra long, hahah).

    I’m with you on Lord of the Flies. That book, ugh. I do like the whole ‘society breaks down really fast’ message, but I really didn’t like that book overall.
