The Liebster Award

A huge shout out to Demi at Bookstraveller for The Liebster Award nomination! Thank you! It’s absolutely exciting to do this post! Demi has some really wonderful posts over at her blog, which I’m sure people who love books and reading, will find interesting.

The rules for the Liebster Award nomination are:

  • Thank the one(s) who nominated you
  • Answer 11 questions the blogger gives you
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate 11 bloggers that you think deserve this award too
  • Give them 11 questions to answer
  • Let the bloggers know you nominated them

Demi’s questions: I promise, I’ll try to keep my answers short and quick:

  1. What is your favourite animal and why?

Love love love dogs!! I have one at home and she just makes me incredibly happy. One look at her happy face and even if I’m in a lousy mood I just can’t help smiling. She’s my happy face!

  1. What is your favourite book and why?

This is a really tough one… I think I will pick one of the many top favourites I have (I mean, there are at least 10 books that are in the “favourite” book spot). 🙂

I think I will go with Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien – his books always take me away from reality. It’s mind blowing how LOTR does this every time, without fail!

  1. What is your favourite movie and why?

Lol, again another tough one. Mary Poppins is, I think definitely one of my most favourite movies. Nostalgia is one of the biggest reasons of course, but also the fact that the movie is just so supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is another.

  1. What is the most recent happy event in your life?

My recent trip to Hyderabad has been a really happy event!

  1. Pepsi or Coca-Cola?

Lol, Coca-Cola… Though, I prefer all these drinks without their fizz. And once their fizz is gone, they just taste like sweetened water, of which I can take max two to three sips. 🙂

  1. Do you like to travel?

No, I loooove to travel! I especially love travelling to beach destinations. There’s no better feeling when I’m reading a book, than that of the beach before me and the sand under my feet.

  1. How many languages can you speak?

Just three – I’m hoping to change that soon though!

  1. What is one aspect of yourself that you occasionally get complimented on?

My love for reading! 🙂 Of course, it’s mostly only by fellow-readers and the older lot who firmly believe that reading is a good habit. But hey, I’m not complaining.

  1. What is your dream job?

My dream job would include just sitting in a room full of books, and occasionally stepping out to buy more and more… Well, there’s a reason it’s a ‘dream job’ – it can only happen in my dreams.

  1. What would you recommend me to watch or read next?

If you haven’t read Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens, I would recommend that you go for it next! I love love love the book. And I think you will too. 🙂

  1. Do you think Donald Trump should become the president of the United States?

Lol, no comments!


11 Random Facts About Me:

  1. I can never imagine a life that doesn’t involve reading or writing. Na-ah.

  4. Thanks for reading my blog. I am not a consistant blogger, just when the spirit moves me. Currently I am spending a lot of time writing my second book. My first book is on Kindle. Don’t look for it on the Best Sellers List, I am trying to have a new cover created for it. And am revising it a little for when the new cover is ready I will upload the revision and put it on for a week free. Look forward to your blogs. Congratulations on your award.
