this award was originally created by maggie @okoto enigma

“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.

6 things about myself (since i was nominated twice and because i am in the mood for it haha)

  1. when i was 4, i fell down off my bike, was unconscious and woke up at the doctor where i got 16 stitches on my chin, because there was a huge hole
  2. before studying computer science in media i started my studies with life science but stopped that after 4 months
  3. as books are my most obsessed thing right now, a couple of years ago i was obsessed with tv series. i watched like every one and knew all there was to know
  4. getting my cats was a spontaneous decision. i saw they were available, called, got in the car, drove to the market and got all kitty stuff there is, went to see the cats and brought them home
  5. i love going to concerts. i’ve seen “coldplay” twice, “mumford & sons” and “muse” three times and robbie williams also twice. concerts are my passion
  6. when i went to study abroad in san francisco i visited new york first and while i was standing in from of the statue of liberty i broke down and cried, because i was so happy, that i finally was where i wanted to be for so many years



fernandas questions:

1.) why and how did you decide on your blog name

that was pretty easy. it’s my bookstagram account name and i just went with it. i love coffee and i am a bookoholic, so that fits well 😀 (and damn you twitter for not allowing that long usernames!!!)


2.) if your life were turned into a movie or book, what would the title be? 

since i don’t want to focus on the negative things, i’m going with the positive and this title fits pretty well i think: “as long as you’re happy”. 🙂


3.) what’s your favorite genre to read?

definitely ya-contemporaries. i love those. i get lost in those. and yes, most of them are the same over and over, but i don’t mind at all.


4.) what’s a hobby of yours?

books, blogging, playing games & my cats 🙂


5.) if you could go anywhere, where would you go?

alaska! that’s on my bucket list and i soooo badly want to go there, just to see it for myself! ❤



nikas questions:

1.) if you could live in one European country aside from the uk, which country would you choose?

IRELAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤


2.) favorite color?

purple. no, blue. no, green. no, yellow. aaaaahhh, i don’t know. depends on my mood 😀


3.) if you could own every edition that exists in the world of one particular book, which book would you want it to be?

“the fault in our stars”. it’s my favorite book so yeah, definitely that one!


4.) favorite social media platform?

definitely instagram. i love photos and beautiful pictures. i could scroll through my feed for hours!


5.) have you ever been outside your country? where?

yes, i have. i’ve been to poland, france, czech republic, greece, italy, spain, portugal, ireland, england, cuba and the usa. ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. Hi, Alex! Thanks for the nomination! But my, what a horrifying experience that you had when you were a kid!! Woke up in a hospital bed and got 16 stitches… hope the scar is not noticeable! 😦

  2. I already did this one, so I’m just going to indulge in the questions here, haha. Because I simply love answering questions but am currently too lazy to start ANOTHER draft.
    [That and I’m probably going to be swamped in tags / awards by the time I get back – especially seeing how many I’m getting the past two weeks.. o.o]


    1.) recommend one bookstore you love and tell us why you love it?
    Waterstones in London! It’s honestly the biggest bookstore I’ve been up until now and I still haven’t been in there long enough. But, honestly, what bookworm can ever be in a bookstore long enough anyway…

    2.) what were the last three books you bought?
    Uuh, those were from my July haul because the books I got this month were gifts from my boyfriend, haha! But I got the complete Death Note box for my birthday; and then I got Nevernight by Jay Kristoff, Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger and The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord.

    3.) if you’d win in the lottery right now, what would be the first thing you would do?
    Buy myself a house because I’m a bit sick of the apartment already (and I’m only living in it for almost a year now..). I just don’t have enough space for my books, okay?! I want my own freaking library already, haha!
    Oh, and I’d like to make a huge trip to all the giant cities in the U.S. That would be a dream come true.

    4.) if you could be any animal for one day, which one would it be?
    I’d have to go with a wolf. I’d love to run around like crazy, the free feeling. Yup.

    5.) how would your perfect library/reading room look like?
    Good thing I didn’t start to describe it earlier! Even though my usual taste is quite modern when it comes to my furniture, I’d like that room to have an old / classic feeling to it. Bookcases all a dark brown wood, lining at least two of the walls. A huge window with my desk in front of it and some cosy sofas to read in.

    There you go! 😀

  3. I did a Belgian beer tag once on my blog, that’s how far we take it :-). Creating your own tag and first thing I thought of was this hmmm :-). All I have to say is yesss cats !! And No Alaska.. I don’t know where you live but I already find it way too cold in Belgium so definitely not going to make it even worse :-). I want to go somewhere hot and warm!

  4. Hola! Howdie! Hey There! Guten Morgon! Bonjour! Thanks for nominating me! YEEEEE BUDDYYYY! Yikes – Alaska! It sounds so beautiful but I would only ever go if I could be followed by a life-sized personal heater – I don’t cope well with the cold lol.
    Wowie – you studied computer science? I’m a bit intimidated now, I tried to take a C++ course in university, I lasted for 5 weeks and broke down during the midterm and dropped out of the course *so sad.*
    Your questions look like loads of fun I can’t wait to get started on them! HAVE A HAPPY DAPPY MONDAY!

    • yay yay yay! you’re very welcome! 🙂
      haha, a life-sized heater would be amazing! 😀

      and yes, i did. the programming stuff was not so much fun! i get your problem with c++ – that one just sucks 😀 😀 😀


    • no, it’s totally fine. i was always interested in media and programming and i wanted to study computer science in media. when i was in high school, i went to a study day at the university and i didn’t like it at all. then i focused on chemistry and biology in school and was always good so i went to study life science after school. but it was really tough. it was a new study program and basically you studied biology, chemistry a lot of math and physics. i got up every day at 6am, went to the university and came back at 9pm, where i had to study at home. and on the weekends i had to work. so i had like no life at all. after i failed the first easy test, i said, nope, that’s not for me. and then i took a half year of and started computer science in media at another university and it was amaaaaazing! 😀 (so much for answering short hahaha)
