The Liebster Blog Award




Now I have already had a Liebster Award nomination in the past and getting it yet again from another great blogger was such a surprise. :)
It had me smiling and feeling on top of the world. Thank you Karina from Watcha Reading for nominating me. :)

I have been blogging for almost nine months now and it feels great to get recognition for your efforts. :)


The rules for this award are:
  • List 11 Facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions put forward by whoever nominated you.
  • Ask 11 new questions to 9 bloggers. They must have less than 200 followers on Bloglovin' (or there preferred method). You cannot re-nominate the blog that nominated you.
  • Go to their blog and inform them that they have been nominated!
Here we go!




11 Facts about Me:

  1. I am a compulsive reader and it seldom happens that I don't have a book with me. I always travel with books as my permanent companions. :)
  2. My absolute favorite places are ones where there is no noise and chaos. In the city, such places are called libraries and temples. :)
  3. I love the colors yellow and orange. At one time my entire wardrobe used to be orange! :)
  4. I like to hoard books. Even if I have a thousand already in my TBR still I cant stop adding more to the list.
  5. I love to visit new places but absolutely hate travelling so I often end up daydreaming about the day when the "Floo" powder would be invented just like in the HP books.
  6. I am scared of cats.
  7. I absolutely adore books by Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
  8. I am a foodie.
  9. I have fanciful wish of travelling back in time and experiencing the era of Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple and Tommy and Tuppence.
  10. I love long rides.
  11. I never seem to have enough space to keep all my books.
Questions from Karina for me:

1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why?
I would love to visit Switzerland and Frankfurt and try to experience these places like they seemed in HEIDI.


2. What supernatural creature would you be? Werewolf, vampire, witch, shapeshifter, etc. Why?
I don't think I would be any. I am just fine as I am. :)

3. If you could be a character in a book, who would you be and why?
I would love to be Dr. Watson or Captain Hastings so that I can see the workings of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot first hand. :)

4. What book character would you want to be stuck on an island with and why?
If I am ever stuck on an island, I would love to be with my husband instead of a book character.

5. Why did you choose to start blogging? 
I chose blogging so that I could find people with the same hobbies and passions like myself. I wanted to talk about books and could not find similar minded people in my usual groups.

6. Who's your favorite author? Why?
I have two favorites and they are Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. They have written the most mind boggling and simply the most ingenious mysteries of all time which haven't gone out of fashion even after more than a hundred years after their first publication!


7. If you could control an element, which would you want to have? Water, fire, earth, air, electricity?
I think I would choose electricity because then maybe I would choose electricity.

8. If there was an apocalypse and you could only keep 5 books, which would you choose? 
In this case I would choose the religious books first and then move to my favorite mysteries.

9. What is something you can't live without? (Besides blogging and books)
I cant live without my husband. 

10. What is a book you are dying to read for 2014?
I am dying to start on "Fifty Shades" series and the "Hunger Games" series.

11. If you could enter a book world, what book world would it be? Why?
I have a tie here. I am dying to visit the HP world and the LOTR world. Both are just magnificent in their detailed creation and the stories that I have read have fueled my eagerness to visit them.
