Mystery Blogger Award

Standard

Thanks Shaz Reads for this nomination and Okoto Enigma for creating a really cool award 🙂

Award Rules:

  • Put the award logo on your blog
  • List the rules
  • Thank whoever nominated you and link to their blog
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  • Nominate roughly 10 – 20 people for this award
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blogs
  • Ask your nominees five questions
  • Share a link to your best/favourite post that you’ve written

3 things about myself:

  • Two and a half years ago, I switched careers from teaching English as a Second Language to publishing. I’ve interned at two publishers and currently work as a Sales and Marketing Assistant at a book distributor.
  • I’m trying to teach myself Korean and French without various levels of success 🙂
  • For the past three years I’ve achieved my reading goal of fifty books or more

5 Questions from Shaz Reads:

  • What do you think is the most underrated Disney film?

Oh geez, don’t remember many Disney films besides the super popular ones. I’d probably have to say either The Rescuers Down Under or The Great Mouse Detective. Those two stand out in my mind but I don’t remember why.

  • Which book would you like to see adapted into a film or TV series?

The Golden Son or The Secret Daughter both by Shilpa Somaya Gowda. Both novels portray India very vividly and it’s beautiful.

  • What’s your favourite ice cream flavour?

Cinnamon, hands down!

  • Which book has had the biggest impact on you?

The book that got me into reading was Anne of Green Gables and the rest of that series kept me going. Anne is a precious, imaginative child that doesn’t suffer fools — especially Gilbert. Kids these days need a fresh role model like that 🙂

  • Skinny jeans: yay or nay?

They’re pretty comfortable, so a ‘yay’ in my book.
