The lovely Michelle Reed @ Book Hangovers Blab Books nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award, and I feel so honoured! I literally squealed when I saw the comment! :) Thank you so much for the nomination, it truly means a lot to me! :)
Here we go!
11 facts about me
1. When I was 5 I started to sing and quickly got involved in our local choir. I've been a member of the church choir for a number of years, I've performed on a scene for a live audience a bunch of times by myself and I've actually also helped record a CD with me singing.
2. Until I was 15 I'd always been a member of some sort of sports team. When I was younger I performed gymnastic and as I got older I got a spot as a trainer. When we moved I started playing soccer but had to stop because some sort of lung problem (the doctors still don't know what went wrong).
3. I loved writing stories when I was younger, I actually have a bunch of books filled with my stories - I always drew a picture that had something to do with the story to go with it.
4. I have 7 siblings. All us 8 kids are my mom's, but we have 3 different fathers.
5. I love to cook! When I lived with my mom I scarcely did it, but since my dad works late and is in pain most of the time, I generally make dinner. I love looking through cook books and trying out different recipies and then change them to my liking. I also love to bake!
6. Superman is the best! I have all the movies - seriously, I just got the new one and I have all the old ones in a collectors edition.
7. I rarely travel, and I've only been outside of Denmark one time(I live in Denmark, Europe). My dad worked in the Netherlands/Holland for a year and when I was in third grade we went to Holland and lived with him for a month. I actually got a very good friend during that month, we had to talk in English, but it didn't matter - I just loved getting a new friend.
I have been to Germany, but since it's practically our neighbour (like USA and Canada) I never see it as another country.
8. I don't have that many friends, I tend to avoid social events. The friends I have a my best friends though, I only "mark" people as a friend when I know I can trust them and I actually want to hang out with them
9. I can't watch an entire movie - unless I'm in the cinema. My boyfriend hate me for it, but whenever I watch a movie I just zoom out, I can't concentrate and start to clean my room, talk or fall asleep
10. This is weird, but whenever the lights are out, I get sleepy. I can have a ton of energy one moment and the second the lights are out I yawn and wants to sleep.
11. My favorite flower is Calla Lily, for starters I love the name and second it's gorgeous and one of the few flowers I'm not allergic too.
Michelle's 11 questions
1. What was your first bookish blog post about?
My first bookish post was the "Reading Habits Tag". I wanted to start off with something simple and I thought a tag would be perfect.
2. What is a bad book habit you have?
When I finish a book I have a hard time starting a new book, so I read 30 pages in one book, then 30 in another and 30 in a third and so on, until I actually decide which book to read....
3. If you could write letters to the dead, who would you write to?
My friend Matilde, she died of cancer when I was younger and she was one of my only friends. I miss her so, and it's one of the reasons I love reading books about people with cancer, it makes me feel closer to her somehow.
4. How many books are on your TBR list?
I have 243 books on my "official" TBR, but then I have 23 books on my TBR-Classics shelf and 29 on my unrealesed books TBR - and I don't even have all the books I want to read on my TBR's
So all in all: A LOT of books!
5. What is your favorite scent/perfume/lotion?
