This weeks challenge from Blog this:

Tell us fifteen facinating, far fetched, frightening, funny or frivilous facts about yourself. Those bits of trivia that are floating around in your life.

Can you eat 10 burgers in one sitting? Do you sleep with your eyes open? Can you tie a cherry stalk into a knot? Speak 5 different languages?

All those things that you’ve bored your friends and family with for years – We want to know.

  1. I don’t know how to drive. But it’s on my list
  2. I’ve lived in 23 different houses in my lifetime (about to be 24)
  3. I am a vegetarian and an aspiring vegan
  4. I daydream constantly.. and as a result I am very unproductive
  5. I have 169 cities pinned in my ‘places I’ve been’ trip advisor map and I get excited anytime I can add a new one
  6. When I was 10 I played a practical joke on my little sister that resulted in her getting stiches in her chin
  7. I fall in love, just a little, with almost everyone I meet
  8. I am a feminist
  9. I believe in Karma
  10. Last week when I found out Eric Bana was playing Henry in the movie adaptation of “The Time Travellers Wife” I was so frustrated that I ranted at my husband about it the whole drive home from work (Eric Bana will always be Chopper to me.. sorry Eric)
  11. I have incredibly vivid dreams
  12. I’m constantly worried about the people I love dying, everytime the phone rings my heart skips a beat
  13. I am embarrassed by how much money I have spent at the Book Depository in the last 2 years
  14. I love Twilight.. even though normally I’m a total book snob, I am stupidly, mortifyingly, obsessed with all things Edward
  15. I’m really excited about finding out the person I will be in ten years time (and twenty, and thirty!)

I got this latest ‘list of’ from Alice and since I’m such a big reader I thought I’d give it a go.

The Rules:


2) List fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you

3) Post your list on your blog and drop a link into the comments here

My list is below, it includes a few series which I’m not sure is allowed in the original exercise but I can’t help but include them! Also although I make no apologies for number 7 and 8, I do have to admit that I’m slightly embarrassed by them:

1. The Time Travellers Wife – Audrey Niffenegger
2. Goodnight Mr Tom – Michelle Magorian
3. Bridge to Terabithia – Katherine Paterson
4. Tomorrow When the War Began (series) – John Marsden
5. Needful Things – Stephen King
6. Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts
7. Harry Potter (series) – JK Rowling
8. Twilight (series) – Stephanie Meyer
9. The Dark Tower (series) – Stephen King
10. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – Jonathan Safran Foer
11. The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
12. April Fools Day – Bryce Courtenay
13. A Child in Time – Ian McEwan
14. Came Back to show you I could fly – Robin Klein
15. To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee

Wow, that was a lot harder than I expected. A lot of the titles that appear in the list are ones that I read as a young adult when my love of books was just starting to form, there are also quite a few series which I love to read because I’m able to invest so much of myself into something that goes into such depth as series tend to do.

I’d love to see what your favourites are! Post away!
