I was nominated to take part in this tag by sincerelykarenjo! The ‘Mystery Blogger’ award, originally created by Okoto Enigma, is named after the meaning of this award’s creator’s name. In his words, ‘there are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; when we get to know them, it’s divine and we find friends where we least expect’ [taken from sincerelykarenjo].

Three Things About Myself…
- I currently work with children who have behavioural problems; I supervise them on their way to & from school. I only recently started doing this job, & although things weren’t great during the first couple of weeks, I’m actually really enjoying it. I also think I’m pretty good at it.
- I have six tattoos, all of which are covered most of the time; a lot of people don’t realise I have them so when they see one/find out about them they’re usually quite shocked (especially because three of them are quite big). I have two Disney tattoos; one of Ariel & one of Never Land, that was done as a tribute to a friend of mine who died when I was a child – I also have the Hogwarts crest with the house animals climbing out of it, the raven from the cover of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, a Queen Elizabeth I of England quote & BADWOLD written on my back (which is a Doctor Who reference).
- My ultimate career goal would be to learn Korean so I could move to South Korea & work with the North Korean defectors who are rehabilitated in South Korea; unfortunately, this goal is practically impossible for me to achieve as my dyslexic brain is very bad at learning new languages & my health means that moving countries would probably be quite difficult.
1. Who Is Your Favourite Book Hero/Heroine & Why?
After looking at the list of my favourite books, I think I would have to pick Sora from A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe… when Sora found out that her whole life had been a lie, she didn’t run away & cry; instead she faced up to what she had to do for the good of her community & showed so much strength.
2. Name 3 Books You Read in 2017 That Gave You The FEELS?
- The Red Ribbon by Lucy Adlington
- The Diplomat’s Daughter by Karin Tanabe
- White Chrysanthemum by Mary Lynn Bracht
Strangely enough, they’re all war books!
3. You Just Won The Lotto… What Is The First Thing You’ll Buy With Your Money?
I would buy my mum a house! Then a couple of malamute puppies for her.
4. Favourite Dessert Of All Time?
I don’t really like sweet food so I’m going to have to be really boring & say vanilla ice cream…
5. If You Could Go On Vacation With Your Favourite Author In A Bookish Destination, Who Would You Pick & Where Would You Go?
Looks like Laura Lam & I are off to Diagon Alley!
