Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is an award for bloggers. It helps to discover new blogs and to build a sense of community in the blogging world!

Thank you Bookmyopia for nominating me!

Here are the rules:

Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.  Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you.  Nominate 11 bloggers that you think are deserving of the award.  Let the bloggers know you nominated them. Give them 11 questions of your own.

Questions and My replies:

  • Any item from a book you would like to have as a souvenir? V's Mask from V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd
  • Favorite bookish gift you have received so far/or would like to be surprised with in the future? The jute bag I got as a pre-order gift with the book- Go Set a Watchman
  • Favorite book friendship? Scout, Dill and Jem from - To Kill a Mocking Bird
  • Beaches or mountains? Beaches all the way
  • A book/series that is underrated? There is never an underrated book as per me. Only Overrated. ;)
  • Favorite reading spot? My cozy chair under my bookshelf (The new one is supposed to come soon) or lying on bed wrapped up in my comforter.
  • An author you would love to interview for your blog? Oh.. I have a list! I wish I culd speak to Harper Lee, it would be like fantasy come true. Gillian Flynn, Khaled Hosseini and Anuja Chauhan to name a few. But obviously that's not the end of the list. :)
  • Your preferred social media for blog promotion? Majorly Twitter, I like taking pictures so Instagram too, and then there's always a little of facebook. :)
  • Top 3 reasons for a book to go into your DNF pile? For me there's only one reason when it goes to that pile, a very genuine obstruction which broke the sync of reading it.
  • One thing (can be anything, for example: genre, diverse characters, narrative style etc) that you feel is underrepresented and would like to see more of? Over the time, the narrative style has shown immense changes, all good and creative one's, but what I feel is underrepresented is always the literary content of the book. It does not necessarily mean using a very high level English or tough words which would complicate the sentences, but it is more about being simple and yet poised while writing. It's a turn on for me when the literary content is a bit theatrical, articulate, creative and has variations. Because, that is the time the book totally grips you.
  • Longest book you have read? I did feel Eat Pray Love was the longest I read (#punintended), it was so dragging and didn't feel like it would finish soon.
