The Liebster Award – Part III

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s been a while I got nominated for this award but I’m finally getting to it now. *lol*  I swear, my snail tempo gets worse and worse. Maybe I’m even slower than a snail by now. Does anyone of you know an animal that’s even slower than a snail?! If yes, that’s what I am. 😂

This said let’s go for „The Liebster Award“! I was nominated by Elli @ AceReader and Anna @ Anna’s Book Nook! And I have absolutely no idea why I deserved to be nominated by two such amazing bloggers! So thank you two so much for nominating me and for thinking me worthy of the award!! ❤ Also if you don’t know Elli and Anna yet, please make sure to check out their blogs and to give them some love! 😉 They deserve it!

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and add a link to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers that you think deserve the award
  • Ask 11 innovative questions to the ones you have nominated
  • Remember to notify your nominees once you have uploaded your acknowledgement post

So without further ado let’s jump right into the questions! 🙂

Anna’s Questions:

1. What is your favorite series that you’ve read this year?

43393863. sy475      26032912. sy475

I read so many great series this year but I guess I’ll just go with „The Folk of the Air“ here because I actually finished the series this year by reading book 2 and 3. And they were awesome! I’ll never get tired of Cardan and Jude! ❤ Those two are too amazing!

2. Which author have you read the most books by?

Haha! Oh Jeez! What a tough question! I think it’s either Cassandra Clare or Sarah J. Maas? I’m pretty sure Cassandra Clare wins with one book more or so though. XD

3. If you could trade places with one character and live their life, who would you choose?

I think I’d want to live Ronan Lynch’s life. He’s just so amazing and can dream things into existence and he has an „I don’t care attitude“ I simply adore. Also Adam Parrish would be my bf. So yep! That’s my answer. ;-P

4. Do you have an auto-buy author? Who?

Guess the answer here would be: Yes, I actually have more than just one! *lol* Cassandra Clare, Leigh Bardugo, Victoria Schwab and Maggie Stiefvater. I loved all of their books and I have yet to come across one I didn’t like.

5. If you could live in a fictional book world, which would you pick?

Either the classic which means I’d want to live in the wizarding world of Harry Potter or the Shadowhunter world. Both of them sound super intriguing and to be a wizard or shadowhunter would be amazing. I’m already a Faerie so I don’t have to wish for that. *LOL*

6. If Santa brought you the top 5 books on your list, what would they be?

52339313. sy475     52554863     38089560. sy475

1215032    54618808. sy475

7. What is your favorite thing about the holiday season?

That I have both of two worlds. On the one hand I can spend time with my family and friends and have a great time with them and on the other hand I can curl up and read a good book while it’s cold outside. XD

8. Do you have a favorite holiday read?

Mhmm… not really. I mean I love to read HP in autumn and winter because it’s just the perfect time to read the series but other than that, nope?

9. Are you a real tree, a fake tree, or no tree person?

I love how I’m doing this tag in September! *lol* Judging by all those Christmassy questions I got nominated before Christmas. XD Anyway: I’m a real tree person, because of my kid. I want her to have a real tree even if it’s just a little one. Once she doesn’t believe in Santa (in Austria it’s actually the Christkind) anymore we’ll probably go for a fake tree or none at all.

10. What is your favorite book quote?

Just one?! Okay, if I only have to name one I’ll go with this one:

“Freely we serve,
Because we freely love,as in our will
To love or not;in this we stand or fall.”

John Milton, Paradise Lost

11. Your top 5 books of 2020?

Well, guess it’s official now. Anna tagged me for „The Liebster Award“ before Christmas. *lol* I’m ashamed I’m only doing this now! XD Give me a second while I think about what I read in 2020. ;-P Here I go:

36285077. sx318     33536168    33413128. sy475

41827561. sy475     17259690

Elli’s Questions:

1. If you had to choose one author to write your life story, who would you choose?

Definitely Suanne Laqueur! Suanne is an amazing writer and she writes her characters so real that you think they are actual people. Yet at the same time all her stories have something magical and are very beautiful! ❤ Yep, Suanne!

2. What’s your go to comfort tv show?

I bet you would have never guessed that one so I’ll just write it here: „Yuri on Ice!“ *lool* I swear I love this anime so much! I even bought it on DVD so I could watch it whenever I feel like it. I just love this show so, so damn much and I must have watched it about a gazillion times already. Yuri and Victor are just everything! ❤  Their relationship is so wholesome and supportive and ahhhh!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

3. Pretties book cover of 2020 in your opinion?

43175555. sy475

Legit one of the most intricate and beautiful book covers I ever saw! =)

4. Do you like watching reality TV?

Well, the answer to that would be „no“! I just can’t with all those reality TV people and the way they act. All the shouting and the constant conflict is giving me skin rash. Haha! I’m a very peace-loving person so reality TV just isn’t for me. XD

5. If you could live in just one bookish universe which one would it be?

I’m having a deja-vu! *lol* Didn’t I just answer a smiliar question above? Well, the same answer then. ;-P

6. What’s your favourite pizza topping?

At the risk of repeating myself, just one?! XD If I have to go with one I’ll say cheese! But I actually like a lot of toppings on my pizza, like spinach, onions, corn, garlic, aubergines, etc. Why are they all vegetarian though? *lol* I just noticed that.

7. Imagine you’re a writer! Which kind of book would you write? (e.g. genre, tropes, characters, etc)

I actually have an idea for a book but I’m still working on finding time to write it. >_< But it would play in the YA and LGBTQ+ genre and it would have the found family trope and definitely music as a trope as well. Plus it would deal with grief and loss. Jeez! I really need to write this book!

8. Is there a genre you want to read more of?

Yeah, I think I need to read more fantasy and sci-fi books. I haven’t read a lot of them lately and I kinda miss readin in those two genres. =)

9. What book trope/genre/random bookish thing do you want to become popular again?

Enemies-to-lovers. I think I haven’t read a decent one of those ever since I read „The Folk of the Air“ series. Why is there never enough of this trope? I mean there obviously are some books that are amazing but a lot of the books that are labeled as „enemies-to-lovers“ aren’t actually „enemies-to-lovers“. Do you get what I mean? Yoongi, you share braincells with me! I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. *lol* Also I really, really would want to see more of friends-to-lovers in books too! It happens so often in real life but is rarely represented in books. =)

10. Have you made reading plans for 2021 yet?

Yes, I once again wrote a TBR for 2021 and so far it’s actually going okay. I mean I won’t be able to read all the 40 books I put on there but I can manage half of them at least. =) I still have 4 months left. ;-P

11. If you read ARCs, has there ever been an ARC you’re super disappointed you didn’t receive a copy of?

Yes, actually there were a lot lately! For instance those three:

50161981. sy475     52735921. sx318 sy475     53205912. sy475

My Nominees

As always you don’t have to do the award if you don’t want to! I just wanted to nominate you for it and show my appreciation for your blogs, amazing content and hard work! =)

  3. Are you a fan of k-dramas (or dramas in general) and if yes which one would you recommend?
  4. Is there an author you literally bought all books from?
  5. Todays TMI? *lol*

I hope you enjoyed my answers and I’m looking forward to read yours! I’m sorry it took me so long to get to this Award but I finally did it!

Take care! And stay healthy and safe!

The Liebster Award – Part II

liebster award

RULES

  1. Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award
  2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you
  3. Give 11 random facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination
  5. Give these blogs 11 questions to answer

First things first! I’ve been nominated for „The Liebster Award“ by Miri @ The Book Dragoness, Elli @ AceReaderBeck @ Smellfoy Can ReadEmma @ A Few Chapters ‚til Love and this is already Part II! In Part I, I answered Miri’s and Elli’s questions. Now it’s Beck’s and Emma’s turn! I still love you guys and once again thank you so much for the nomination! ❤ I feel very honored that you all thought of me and I’ll try my best to answer all those interesting questions! Also to everyone who’s reading this just now: Those four girls are amazing and their blogs have awesome content! So if you don’t know them already I can totally recommend their blogs! 🙂

Since this is already Part II I’m going to answer Beck’s and Emma’s questions now! Are you ready?

BECK’S QUESTIONS:

1. what was your first blog post about?

It was about starting my blog and I asked people to be patient with me because I needed to figure things out. So pretty lame, I guess. *lol*

2. if you had to become a disney villain for a day, who would you be?

Ohh, I love villains so that’s a pretty tough question. When it comes to Disney villains I think I’d like to go with Hades, though. I just love mythology and he’s such a funny villain. At least I think he is. xD

3. what is your favorite podcast to listen to?

I don’t have one which probably makes me so 2000 and late but what can I say?! If I listen to anything it’s music or simply the radio so there’s that. *feels like I lost about a 1.000 coolness points now*  *lol*

4. what Doctor Who creature do you identify with the most? (if you don’t watch Doctor Who just look it up and take a guess)

Creature? Wow…. all Dr. Who creatures I know are pretty scary. (e.g. Dream Crabs, The Silcence, The Boneless,…) so I’ll just go with something not scary like „The Adipose“. Haha! They look pretty cute and if you want to lose some weight they can be very helpful, plus they are harmless. XD

5. what is your favorite gif?

Because I’m such a soft marshmallow on the inside (don’t tell anyone I ever said that) & because I love Yuri and Victor! ❤

6. most paranormal experience?

I saw a ghost at one of my former companies and she walked right through me. *shudders* Definitely something I don’t have to experience again. *lol*

7. open your junk drawer (I know you have one) and grab a couple random items in the bottom of the drawer. Tell me what they are (incorrect answers only)

Hair clips, collectible figures, foreign currencies, …. Well, all the nice things you put into a junk drawer when you need to get them out of the way. 😛

8. which Spider-Man? Tobey, Andrew, or Tom? What about Spider-Verse characters?

I really liked Tobey when he was Spiderman but I think Andrew won me over. He managed to give Spiderman such a vulnerable and sweet side. One of my all-time favourite Spiderman scenes is when he comes back from the fight and still brings Aunt May her eggs. It’s such a moving and genuine scene. Ahhh I can’t even! ❤

9. what is your favorite meme? (don’t tell me, show me!)

   

Because they are both spot on and me in a nutshell! *lol*

10. did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise?

Haha! Yes, about a thousand times. I’m such a Warsie! 😛

11. just go on a mini rant about anything.

A mini rant is so hard to write when you have nothing to rant about. *lol* I mean I could rant about the fact that I’ve been stuck at home for 5 weeks but then again who isn’t? If you want a proper rant from me you better read my next 2 paws review. *lol* 😛

EMMA’S QUESTIONS:

  • What’s a book you love, but hate the cover of?
11472297

When I first read the „Shatter Me“ series I read the book with the cover above and I think it doesn’t fit the series! I dunno who decided to make a cover like that, but it’s horrible and completely at odds with the series. In the end I bought all three books with the beautiful covers for my book collection at home. (see down below)

13455782   13104080   13188676

They are a sight to behold! ❤

  • Most anticipated read of 2020?

„The Silvered Serpents“ by Roshani Chokshi! I even requested an ARC through NetGalley just to read it! And was declined! T_T (Sometimes it’s tough to be an international blogger… ) I just hope the book will get out in September like it was supposed to.

  • How do you take your coffee? (If you don’t drink coffee, how do you make your favourite drink?)

HA! That’s the right question for me! I’m such a coffee addict! I always joke that there is coffee running through my veins! *lol* And to answer your question: I only drink it with a little dash of milk and no sugar.

  • Do you lend out your books?

I do, but only to my besties. I’d lend them to my family too but they don’t love to read as much as I do and even more important they don’t read in English like I do. *lol*

  • Are reading / blogging slumps a problem for you?

Not really, but every once in a while I fall into one and then it’s pretty bad. The last time I got into a reading slump was at the beginning of March and I just couldn’t bring myself to read anything because I was so tired and exhausted all of the time. Well, and because of that I was in a blogging slump as well. XD I guess they always go hand in hand. The book that eventually got me out of it was „Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian“. *lol* Uncle Rick is the best! ❤

  • What is your favourite summer-time activity (that isn’t reading)?

Swimming. Unfortunately Austria is a landlocked country and we don’t have the sea. So it’s either the (public) swimming pool or a holiday at one of our many lakes. (And holidays in Austria are very expensive!) I wonder when I’ll be able to go on a holiday again… With Covid-19 it might take quite a while until I’ll be able to see the ocean again. 😦

  • What is your favourite winter-time activity (that isn’t reading)?

Hard to decide. I love skiing and ice skating but like I already mentioned above holidays in Austria are very expensive. Especially skiiing holidays. I can go ice skating anytime though. 🙂 So that’s something positive! (That is, of course, if anyone of my family and friends would be able to stay on their feet. *lol* The last time I was skating I went with my colleagues because they know how to skate! XD)

  • Cliffhangers; love ‘em or hate ‘em?

Oh, I think cliffhangers and I have a very intense love-hate relationship. 😛 I hate it when they appear but they make everything so much more interesting so I just gotta love them even though I hate them. Talk about feeling conflicted. Haha!

  • Do you have a favourite bookstagram account you follow?

Nope, actually not. I mean I know a few people that have one and I sometimes take a closer look at their bookstagram account but I don’t have one myself and therefore don’t follow anyone. Tbh I wanted to make an Instagram account but for some reason Instagram wouldn’t let me and I always got an error message. I tried it with my phone, I tried it from my computer, but no matter what I did, it didn’t accept my information. *shrugs* So yeah, after trying really hard to make an Instagram account I eventually decided that if it doesn’t want me, I won’t try anymore. >_<

  • What is a TV show you can’t get into, but that a good friend loves?

One of my besties loves „House of Cards“ and even though it sounds really good I still haven’t managed to watch it. Maybe it’s because I don’t like Kevin Spacey or because this series already has 6 seasons with a total of 73 episodes? I’m always hesitant before I start such a long series because just like with books I want to know how it ends… even if it’s not good. XD Did any of you watch it already? Is it worth the hype?

  • Do you keep your room tidy?

I keep my entire flat tidy. Or as tidy as it can be with a little rascal that loves to throw toys everywhere. *lol* By now she’s gotten better at putting them away again though so it’s not as bad as it used to. (I used to stumble over her toys when she was smaller because as a toddler she basically dropped them everywhere. XD) Ahh the infinite joys of child-rearing. 😛

6 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT MYSELF:

(As promised here comes the other half! 😛 )

6.) I suck at jogging. Yes, really! Due to a knee and back injury I just can’t seem to be able to run. I know lots of people like to jog but I just can’t. Let me swim or dance or ride a bicycle, but don’t force me to run. *lol* I hold it like Elijah Wood in „The Faculty“: I don’t think that a person should run unless he’s being chased.“ 😛

7.) I don’t like clowns or dolls for that matter. They give me the creeps! I mean they are damn scary!! My sister used to collect those porcelain dolls (thankfully she had moved out by then and they were at her own home) and all I could think of was: Boy, am I glad that I don’t live in this house with dolls. *shudders* So yep, I guess you’ll NEVER EVER find me reading „It“. (I might get a heart attack just reading it. >_<)

8.) I always feel cold and therefore prefer hot/warm weather. My feel-good temperature starts at 25 degrees. 😉

9.) When it comes to choosing between McDonalds or Burger King it will always be Burger King. *lol*

10.) I’ve a cooking dimploma and thus am a trained chef. So I basically could start working at a restaurant if I’d want to. I love to cook for my family and friends but I don’t think I’d enjoy working as a chef though. XD

11.) I have 5 ear holes. 3 of them are piercings and 2 are your ordinary earring holes. What no one knows is that I did the ordinary earring holes myself. When I was four years old my aunts and I went to pierce them, but when I was seven they inflamed and I stopped wearing them which led to them becoming overgrown. So when I was a teen I finally figured out that I’m allergic to nickel and got myself silver earrings instead. Well, I’m sure you can imagine the rest. *lol* (No gory details here…) I did the other 3 piercings when I was 14 at a piercing studio though. So don’t worry! 😛

MY 11 QUESTIONS:

1.) Are you a coffee, tea or cocoa person?

2.) Early bird or really grumpy in the morning? (Always interesting to know! 😉 )

3.) What is the book genre you read the most? And why?

4.) The best book/movie related dream you ever had? (I want details. *lol*)

5.) Who is your favourite Disney princess or prince and why?

6.) What’s your favourite dish?

7.) A book (series) that’s totally unknown but you love it with all your heart? (Me, looking for a new favourite? Nope, never! XD)

8.) Do you have siblings?

9.) Do you or did you ever play a musical instrument? Which kind of musical instrument is/was it?

10.) Which kind of book character is the most like you?

11.) Your favourite quote! =)

And last but not least:

I NOMINATE:

Celeste @ Novel Notions

Ashley @ Ashes Books & Bobs

May @ my 1st chapter

Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews

Once again a huge „THANK YOU“ to everyone who nominated me! ❤ I promise next time I’ll try to be faster with answering my tags. (Who am I kidding? I’m a S.N.A.I.L! *lol*) Anyway, I’m already looking forward to reading all of the nominees answers. I’m sure they’ll be interesting! 😀

This said: Take care and try to stay healthy and safe!

The Liebster Award – Part I

Hey there, my lovelies!

Over the last 3 months I was nominated for „The Liebster Award“ by not only one or two, but by FOUR different bloggers and I kind of get the impression that you guys really, REALLY want me to do this tag! *lol* It’s just a feeling and I could be wrong, but if four different people decided they want me to do this I better follow your instructions and finally go for it, right?

So since I aim to please (us Gancanaghs always do 😛 ) I concluded that it would be best to make two parts in which I answer two of my nominations at a time. That way you won’t have to read a super long-ass blog post you already forgot when you reached the ending. (Which is probably the same way you feel after reading one of my long-ass reviews, but let’s not go there, alright? XD)

Anyway! Back on track and right to the official part:

liebster award

RULES

  1. Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award
  2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you
  3. Give 11 random facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination
  5. Give these blogs 11 questions to answer

First things first! I’ve been nominated for „The Liebster Award“ by Miri @ The Book Dragoness, Elli @ AceReaderBeck @ Smellfoy Can ReadEmma @ A Few Chapters ‚til Love! You guys know that I love you, right? ❤ Thank you so much for the nomination! I feel very honored that you all thought of me and I’ll try my best to answer all of your interesting questions! Also to everyone who’s reading this right now: Those four girls are amazing and their blogs have awesome content! So if you don’t know them already you should definitely check out their blogs! 😉

I’m going to answer Miri and Elli’s questions first so here I go:

MIRI’S QUESTIONS:

1. What are your blogging goals for the ’20s?

What a way to start your questions. *lol* You don’t make it easy, Miri! 😛 Pfff… that’s a tough one. I guess my main goal is just to do what I love and to write reviews and keep my blog going? XD Well, I suppose I also want to improve my blog and try out a few things. Like for instance my own tags, memes, etc. I also thought about probably posting a short video or maybe I’ll work on my layout and get even more creative. There are endless possibilities and I’m definitely going to explore them. 😉

2. What is your favorite (and least favorite) part of blogging?

You’re not letting me off the hook, huh? 😛 My favourite part of blogging is to put my ideas into practice. There are so many things I want to do and once I get the chance (and have the time) I really enjoy to write them down! Also it’s so good to be able to be creative and to interact with fellow book bloggers! 🙂 This community is really amazing and everyone is so welcoming! As for my least favorite part of blogging… Mhmm… I can’t think of anything. I just love my blog. ❤ I was born to blog. *lol*

3. Do you have any hobbies aside from reading? If so, let us know!

Way too many to list them all here, but I’ll just jump right into it. Here goes nothing! XD Dancing, listening to music (and to make it, even though I’ve to admit that I didn’t make music for quite a while – no time. T_T ), cooking, writing (role play posts, reviews & poetry), drawing, swimming, skiing, … I could go on and on. 😉

4. If you were accepted as a Hogwarts student, what class would you most be excited to take?

4*. Alternative: If you could visit a fictional land, where would it be?

Ahhh, Miri you’re killing me with those questions! *lol* I think DADA would be super interesting but I’m sure I’d also enjoy Potions (without Snape), Herbology and Flying. Hell, I think I’d love them all! Why do I have to chose? T_T

5. What book group cast would you want to be part of?

If it would have to be a real life book cast I’d be totally down for being a part of the „Red, White & Royal Blue“ cast! ❤ I loved that crew so much! If it would have to be a fantasy cast I’d be so down for being a part of „The Raven Boys“. I’m basically Ronan anyway so I’d fit in perfectly. 😛

6. Do you DNF books/series? Do you generally finish them?

I’ve never DNFd a book and even though I sometimes had to fight through it *cough* „The Death Cure“ *cough* „Genuine Fraud“ *cough cough* Boy, I’m sorry, must be my allergy. 😉 Where was I again. Oh yeah, even though I had to fight through some of the books I read I still always finish them. I feel an odd sense of responsibility to finish books I started because I believe that the author deserves it. Also I don’t want to write down my opinion if I don’t even know if the book was bad or good until the end so yeah, I always finish books before I write/speak about them.

7. What is the favorite blog post you’ve written?

Honest answer? I haven’t written it yet. I don’t think that any of them was good enough to be my favorite so I still aim to write that perfect blog post. Guess this is a good motivation for keeping my blog up and running, huh? XD

8. Go to the 77th page and the 7th line of your current read. What does it say?

„The same thing he always is. Delivering mail.“ Haha! Okay, that sounds so boring even though the book is amazing! (It’s from „A Darker Shade of Magic“)

9. What kind of day is the best day for reading for you?

It used to be rainy days but now it are windy days. I can’t go out when it’s too windy because my ears are very sensitive and this even when I wear a hoodie or hat. So I try to stay indoors when it’s too stormy outside and read. 😉

10. What is a book you loved as a child?

Ohhh, before I discovered Harry Potter I was such a huge fan of „Die Knickerbockerbande“. It’s a child series written by an Austrian author. If we’re talking about one single book then it would have been „The Little Witch“ by Otfried Preußler though. *lol*

11. What was the last time you couldn’t put down a book? What book was it?

Definitely „The Illuminae Files“! I lived and breathed with those characters and I was totally absorbed in the books. ❤ It’s rare for me to page through an entire series but Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff succeeded to glue me to the pages.

ELLI’S QUESTIONS

1. What book are you dying to get your hands on?

Ouch, that question hurts. *lol* I’ve been dying to get my hands on „The Silvered Serpents“ and I even made a NetGalley account to get it as an ARC. Unfortunately my request was declined because I’m from Europe… Tbh I’m still licking my wounds. T_T

2. If you could re-read any book for the first time, what would it be?

That’s a tough question, but I think it would be „The Song of Achilles“. I loved this book so much when I read it for the very first time and it made me not only happy but also sad. Madeline Miller’s writing style is just so beautiful, I basically kept weeping throughout the entire book. *lol* ❤

3. Your go to pizza order?

Pizza with all kinds of cheese, onions, ham and corn. Though I love to vary and have a preference for weird pizzas. Like I eat them with garlic and broccoli. *lol*

4. Your favourite book cover of 2020?

49202877. sy475

I just got an ARC from NetGalley and I’m in love with the cover! I love that it’s so unapologetic LGBTQ+ and then there’s the skyline of Toronto in the background as well! One of my favourite cities ever! ❤

5. Are you addicted to watching TikToks until 3am? (because same.)

I’ve to admit that I only discovered them recently, but yes, they are so much fun! XD (I can’t watch them until 3am though because my little one gets up at 4am atm. *silently dies*)

6. What’s your favourite character from your favourite series (book or show)

I have so many! Favourite series and characters I mean. As you all know I’m kind of in love with „The Raven Cycle“ though. So I’m Ronan Lynch and I’d die for Adam Parrish! Just saying. 😛 (Guess I just outed myself as queer af. *lol*)

7. Best food to eat when you’re drunk?

Pizza! When I was a teen I went out to dance quite often and every time when I danced I got hungry (I guess  too many drinks didn’t help either XD). So I’d take my friends and we’d head to that tiny pizza shop at „Schwedenplatz“. I swear nothing was better than that pizza! ❤

8. What are you favourite random book tropes/dynamics.

I’m such a sucker for the „enemies to lovers“ trope but I’ve to admit that I love „family dynamics“ in books too! Plus a decent best friends rep is making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 😉

9. Your favourite vines?

As in alcohol? I’m more the type for sweet vines so I like Porto, Lambrusco or Samos. If we’re talking about actual vines I like ivy (though it’s poisonous) and taro vine. (I have a green thumb, don’t aks. *lol*)

10. Do you bake/cook?

Yes, I do both! 🙂 At the moment I’m cooking more than I’m baking though. Now that I have so much time at home I can let out my inner gourmet chef once again and it’s actually kind of nice to have the time to cook and to eat in peace. I think my family is pretty grateful for my cooking skills as well. XD

11. What book do you recommend always and forever?

You mean which kind of books (plural) do I recommend always and forever? 😛 Because it always depend on the person’s preferences. You know what they say: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure and all that jazz. *lol* One of my personal favourites is „The Picture of Dorian Gray“ though.

FIVE RANDOM FACTS ABOUT MYSELF:

(you’ll get the other 6 in Part II 😉 )

1.) I’m a Gryffindor with quite a few Slytherin traits so I guess even though I’m always sorted into Gryffindor I might be some sort of Gryfferin like Harry?! *lol* Funnily enough lots of people told me I remind them of Harry Potter so I guess that’s okay? *scratches head and shrugs*

2.) I only have about 60% of hearing on my right ear and a tinnitus on my left one. According to the docs the bad hearing is due to a birth defect and kind of caused the tinnitus when I scraped past a burnout. Funny times. 😉

3.) Whenever I develop an unhealthy obsession about a certain food product you can be sure that it won’t be available in future. Like I’d love those amazing steakhouse potato chips from Kelly’s and all of a sudden they’d discontinue it. The same goes for Billa Chai tea, Ölz blue berry muffins, etc. You name it! I swear somewhere out in this world there’s a person that tracks my eating habits and has a blast removing all my favourites from the supermarket shelves! *lol*

4.) I used to draw Mangas when I was a teen. It was mostly fanart but every now and then I actually came up with something original. Some people thought I was good but ehh… I don’t think so. >_<

5.) I’ve been told that I have a deep, pleasant and soothing voice and I have no idea why people seem to like it so much. Apparently I should be on the radio or become an audio book narrator. XD (fun fact: My company once asked me to record a text for their phone loop. I bet lots of people that had to wait until someone answered the phone might have started to hate my voice. Haha!) Anyway if you know how to start a carreer like that, let me know! It sounds like it might be fun! 😛

So, that’s it for now! 🙂 I hope you guys enjoyed my answers and random facts. In Part II I’ll answer Beck’s and Emma’s questions, add 6 more random facts, will give my own questions and I’ll make sure to tag 11 other people. And yep, I think it’s going to be an even longer blog post than this one. Sorry bout that! >_<

This said: Stay safe and healthy! ❤ (and if possible optimistic as well. XD)
