What Is the Mystery Blogger Award?

It’s 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 Facts About Me

  1. I’m getting rid of over 100 books that I’m never going to read again. (I’ll be doing a post about it someday soon.)
  2. My least favorite vegetable is probably eggplant.
  3. Thanks to my boyfriend, I’ve been on more rollercoasters in the last six months than I’d been on in the last probably fifteen years.

Questions from Shyla

What is in your reader wheelhouse? You see it on a shelf, you can’t resist.

I’d have to say any kind of friends-to-lovers romance. I’m a little pickier about my enemies-to-lovers books, but friends-to-lovers is almost sure to please me.

What is the last book you read?

Right now, I’m about halfway done with We Are Lost and Found by Helene Dunbar. The last book I finished was The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness.

If you could have one superpower, would would it be?

I have a standing answer for this question — teleportation. I’m in a long-distance relationship and both my mom and my best friend live in a different state than me. I’d be teleporting constantly if I could.

What horror/dystopia book or movie would you be most likely to survive through and why?

Well, I just watched The Conjuring with my boyfriend not too long ago, and I think I can pretty safely say that I’d survive that movie. Why? Because the second that dog refused to walk through the door of the new house, I would’ve been like… nope. Something’s wrong here. We’re leaving.

If you could invent one thing, anything at all, what would it be?

Ooh, good question. Going along with my superpower answer, I’d love to invent a way to teleport. Not only would I be able to easily visit anybody at any time, but I would also definitely be rich enough to retire and spend the rest of my life focusing on books and doing good in the world.

Recent(ish) Posts That I’m Proud Of

I’m not going to nominate anyone in particular this time around, but please feel free to answer Shyla’s questions if you’d like! Which horror movie would you survive? Which superpower would you like to have? Let’s talk in the comments!

Page Count: April 2019

I don’t want to be too presumptuous, but it looks like I might finally be out of my reading slump. For the first time in at least two months, I’m actually excited about picking up a book again. Just yesterday, I found myself sitting at my desk at work wishing I was reading a book instead. It’s been so long since I had that feeling and it made me so happy.

Anyway, here’s what I ended up reading in April.
