I am both utterly surprised and excited to be writing this post; thank you, Kayleigh from My Endless Shelf for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award! I am thrilled and so thankful that she put my blog in a list with some exceptional book blogs – will this shock ever wear off? Anyway, I urge you to check out My Endless Shelf, especially Kayleigh’s own Award post, and before I get into details about myself, here are the details on the award.
What is the Mystery Blogger Award?
“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.

- I was on the University of Maine’s Dance Team for all four years of my undergrad.
Second, the questions that Kayleigh asked:

Aubrey Plaza, because I love her and she would make me feel / look cooler than I am.
- What book title could sum up your love life or reading style (you decide which, or both)?
Love Life: Sense and Sensibility
Reading Style: I knew immediately what word I would use and luckily there are a few books with this word as a title – Sporadic.

Hmm…Jane Austen, Beverly Cleary, and more recently, Toni Morrison.

Geesh, just one? Ummm…I would ask Leslie Knope if she would be my mentor.
Third, my favorite/best blog posts:
My [Top Ten] Books I Could Read Forever is the most loved post by my readers (in terms of most comments and likes), and I really love my post on Vanity Fair and Preservation.
Fourth, my nominees:
