The Four Fact Survey Tag

Inge @ The Belgian Reviewer tagged me in The Four Facts Survey. Check out her blog; it’s fantastic, and she often reviews books I haven’t even heard about, so it’s a great source of new books to add to TBR 🙂

      MasterChef Australia is the best! Everyone is so nice and supporting of each other, it was something that really hit me after watching American version. I was so pleasantly surprised that you can make a tv competition without making people argue with each other.
      I’ve seen aurora borealis when I was in Lapland, and it is AMAZING! I’d love to see it again (preferably not in -40C weather)

    Fun tag! Though I’ve never watched Love Actually, I have watched Pride and Prejudice many times! I’m so glad chocolate was on the top of your favorite foods list… Otherwise, I seriously would have been worried for you :p
