What is The Mystery Blogger Award?
The Mystery Blogger Award is 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.
This award was originally created by Okoto @ Okoto Enigma’s Blog.

Three things about me:
- My favourite animal is the Great White Shark. They’re very misunderstood, and are beautiful animals, which need protecting.
- My favourite musician is Dermot Kennedy. His voice is incredible, and I think he deserves a lot more attention than he gets!
- I am a black belt in karate. I haven’t trained in around 5 years now though, but as soon as this whole coronavirus business is over, I am planning on getting back in to it.

Questions from Livy
1 – What is the book that makes you nostalgic (for anything)?
Definitely the Vampirates series by Justin Somper, but especially book 1 of the series, Demons of the Ocean. This was my favourite series as a child (along with the one we no longer talk about), and I still love it now.
2 – What book would you turn into a movie/ TV series and why?
Oh, good question! There are quite a few, but I’m going to choose Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Bryn. I absolutely loved this story, and I think it would make a great movie!
3 – How do you keep track of books that you read (journaling, GoodReads, spreadsheets…)
Mainly just GoodReads, but for yearly challenges and things that need a TBR I tend to make a spreadsheet, and tick them off as I go.
4 – Most anticipated read for the rest of the year?
There are quite a lot that I am really excited about, but I would have to say that my most anticipated read for the rest of the year is Out For Blood by Deborah Masson! I read her debut novel, Hold Your Tongue, in 2019 and absolutely loved it, so I’m extremely excited for this one.
5 – What do you enjoy about blogging ?
I love sharing my thoughts with others, finding new books through other people’s blogs, the amazing opportunities, and all of the wonderful friends that I’ve made because of it.

Intriguing choice for a book made into a movie. I’ll have to check it out based on your recommendation. I keep track of my books on Goodreads, but I also started an Excel spreadsheet for insurance purposes because I have so many books. So far I’m in the 900s and have several more bookcases and boxes of books to go through.
