I have received the Danish books ‘Vinterklip’ and ‘Simones Juleklip’ from the Danish Publisher PeoplesPress (thank you so much!), which are both filled with tutorials on how to make wonderful, paper decorations. There are some truly stunning decorations in the books, and it makes your house looks so nice and Christmassy. Even though it is pretty time-consuming it is a lot easier than it might look and just takes a bit patience. And there are many of the decorations that are more winter-themed than Christmas themed so you can totally still use this book after next week.
I myself have had most fun with ‘Vinterklip’, but if you want to do it with kids I’d recommend ‘Simones Juleklip’ more.
Today, when shopping at the grocery store, I ended up standing in a very long line at the register. You probably all know the feeling of being extremely bored and impatient for the line to move quicker. Anyway, I was standing there waiting, when I noticed this bad sour smell around me. I looked around and realized it was coming from an old man standing right in front of me in the line. He looked like he was in his late sixties, maybe early seventies, with white thin hair and a big black down jacket on. He was smelling quite badly and looked, well, a little shabby. It wasn’t very bad, but just enough that I took notice. (more…)
This past week I went to a blogger event and the Danish book fair with Tilda, and because of that I got a lot of exciting things to show and tell you.
Wednesday, last week, I went to a blogger where the Danish authors A. J. Kazinsky and Sarah Engell came, a long with the British Mhairi McFarlarne. I loved listening to so different authors all talking passionately about their writing, and I had a lot of fun at the event.
From the event I got all the pictures you can see below, I think that tote bag might be a new favorite. (more…)
If you ask my dad I’m the biggest TV junkie on the planet (besides my sister). That might be true — or, you know, my dad might just not be watching enough TV to be able to judge that properly. No matter what, though, I do love a lot of TV shows, and today it is time to share my all time favoritesss. These are all so near to my heart, and I love them sosoo much, so I’m really excited to share them with you.
I’ve tried to rank the shows (from least fave to most fave), but they’re all so different and I love them so it really was a real struggle. So yeah, don’t take that too seriously. Anyway let’s get started, here’s the list:
I’ve been gone for so long it feels so strange and great to be back. If you’re hella confused as to who I am right now it is very understandable. I have been inactive for many months, and I just changed my name from Bookworm Who Lived to this one, Fiona’s Little Corner. So, welcome to my (kinda) new blog!
I have for a while been thinking about getting back into blogging, as I have been missing it quite a lot. Coming back under the name Bookworm Who Lived, however, didn’t feel right at all. I don’t want to be restricted to only write about books anymore, no, I want to write about everything I enjoy and think about – and that’s surprisingly enough a lot more than just books (I know, shocker). I have many different interests and I want to be able to express them all on here – so that’s what I’ll do from now on, yay. (more…)
I did this tag last year (link), and I thought it was a really nice way to talk about the books I’ve read so far. The tag has also weirdly enough gotten extremely many views lately, so here’s an updated version for you all.
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2017.
The Hate U Give is without a doubt a favorite. It was moving and has left such a big impact on me, and even though I did expect it to carry an extremely important message I didn’t expect to love is as much as I did. I highly, highly, higly recommend it!
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2017.
There’s no doubt that is Crooked Kingdom. Six of Crows and not only did CK top that it also concluded the duology so well. Definitly the best book of the year (I know I said it was THUG, but I can’t talk about Crooked Kingdom in every question, you know.)(more…)
(Danish translation below // dansk oversættelse nedenunder)
Shadow and Bone is about Alina discovering she has this special power that basically means she’s destined to save the world. She gets taken away from everything she knows (including her best friend/crush Mal) to train her powers.
I’ve read and loved (!) the Six of Crows-duology, and this book just didn’t live up to those book at all. Like that is a whole other league.
Shadow and Bone is extremely fast paced and you have fun and enjoy reading it. The pages are flying by, and if I had owned all the books I probably would have marathoned the whole trilogy.(more…)
About two weeks ago I posted my first post in this series (link hereee), where I basically tell some of the small fun stories behind some of my Bookstagram pictures. I had so much fun making it, and you guys seemed to really like it so I decided to continue on with a part 2!

This is pretty mucg the story behind every picture I ever take. They might all seem similar, but I still do it. It is needed for, when you want that perfect one. (more…)
