So I guess I never really told you guys anything about myself at all. I've decided that it's about time to do something about that(about time after blogging for two whole years). I mean isn't it nice to know something about the person behind the blog you're reading?
|This is me at a costume party back in winter 2010 I think it was.|
Hi y'all so this is me, Mari. I started this blog back in 2009 because I wanted to share my passion for reading with someone. In May 2011 I decided that I needed a blog partner.
I'm a born and breed Norwegian with 1/16 part Swedish and 1/16 Czechish blood thrown in the mixture(yeah I want to feel a little more international so I had to include some distant ancestors). I live on the countryside with my little family and I absolutely love it.
I'm 32 years old, but sometimes I still feel like I'm somewhere around 18- 15, I guess that's why I'm able to love YA as much as I do. I'm not married but I've been together with my significant other since the day before I turned fifteen. Together we have two wonderful children, objectively speaking that is ;).
Some favorites of mine:
Favorite books(oh, it's so hard to choose!):
On Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Blue Is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh(a heart breaking graphip novel, originally written in French, but translated into English)
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion(I adore the language in this one)
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Knife( Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter) by R.J. Anderson(a cute middle grade read, perfect for the screen in my opinion)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Newsroom(come back, please)
Green Wing(this is just hilarious - a British parody on series like the E.R. and Grey's Anatomy)
Firefly(I want more of this one as well)
I also enjoy watching movies, documentaries and sports(like cross-country, soccer, handball) on TV.
Interests besides reading:
Spending time with my children, genealogy, playing soccer with my 'old' girls, learning and keeping an eye on things that happen in our world.
So that's a little something about me. Anything else you would like to know just ask.
