Liebster Blog Award

Oooh o.O I've been awarded the Liebster Blog Award! I would like to thank Nobonita at Daydreaming Bookworm for this honor.

Now, if your scratching your head and thinking, "what in the world is that?", The Liebster Blog Award is an award given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is actually a German word which means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. Well, doesn't that make you all mushy?

So people, here are the rules (for once I decided that I might follow them this time) :

1. Each person must post 11 facts about themselves

2. Answer 11 questions the tagger has given you and give 11 questions for the people you've tagged. (My dirty mind is on it)

3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

4. Tell them you've tagged them. (Cause seriously they won't have a dream or receive a letter by an owl telling them that they've been awarded by the awesomeness that is yours truly)

5. Remember, no tag backs. (It's said to be a cause of animosity between many bloggers. Just kidding ... or maybe not)

11 facts about me (read them at your own risk, you've been warned) :

1. I was born on 1 Nov, and I'm quite proud of such an awesome date because of all those 1s.

2. I am the biggest procrastinator you'll ever have the chance to know! And same goes for clumsiness! If you ever in wildest dreams catch me in heels, I am very much sprawled on the floor or down in a gutter because I can't walk straight for the love of god.

3. I want to get a tattoo of three ravens like Tris does in Divergent.

4. I have two hyper-active sister-torturing sadists of an illiterate monkeys for my younger bros. I have been repeatedly praised for the height of my tolerance concerning these lil' monsters.

5. When I get older (like getting my first strands of the doomed white hair. Yup, when I'm rocking my 60s), I wish to open a publishing company that supports teen writers from all over the world.

6. I love to read (Duh!) and write. Maybe I'll try to get published myself one day.

7. I want to study child psychology, mainly focusing on teen bullying and depression (maybe because I want to do some counselling and spread awareness about this). Also, I want to study Greek mythology and Latin.

8. I love music. Especially alternative rock and, barely, sometimes alternative pop like Digital Daggers. I have real weak concentration and music helps me to build it.

9. I L.O.V.E. Goodreads and Wattpad.

10. I don't freaking believe in love at first sight. I believe love is about growing up, knowing each other, building down other's defenses and over-coming problems together. So yeah, no vote for fast love for me. (Boy, do I get sentimental at these things.)

11. I want to dye my hair deep blue or purple or burgundy some day.

Answers to those questions Nobonita asked while playing the 11 questions rule with me (You can say, she bribed me with this award to get some personal information out of me. Understandable, since I'm a super secret ninja spy being tracked down by 11 countries. No really, so let's keep the further info hush hush) :

1 How long have you been blogging?

- I've had a blog from around December last year. But the huge lazy ass that I am, I officially started blogging in March this year, during my after-exam holidays.

2 Are you on goodreads?
- Yes, by the name of Priya, which is freakishly weird since Priya is a pretty common name in my country.

3 Do you do weekly memes on your blog?
- Yes, two actually. One is Still on my Mind hosted by Hayley @ Ya-Holic. The other one I just started participating this week called Waiting on Wednesday, it's pretty popular (It's like mentioned in Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout) and is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

4 Which book are you currently reading?
- I'm reading Glitch by Heather Anastasiu and Incarnate by Jodi Meadows. Hopefully, I'll be starting with If I Stay by Gayle Forman soon.

5 How many books do you have on your wishlist?
- More than you can count, baby. Well, it's actually 392 as of right now.

6 What is your favourite subject?
- Psychology, Greek mythology and ancient languages.

7 Where do you live?
- New Delhi, India

8 Did you ever visit my blog before I tagged you?
- Yup, I did.

9 What kind of books do you usually read?
- Though I mostly read paranormal romance. Right now I m experimenting with dystopian and contemporary. But it's mostly YA.

10 What is your all-time favourite author?
- A really very difficult choice. Right now, it's a tie between Rachel Vincent, Kelly Creagh, my new favorite Lucy Christopher and Mal Peet (man, I've held onto this author for years with just a single book)

11 Do you currently have any ARC with you?If you do,which book is it?
- Yes, I have ARCs of Glimpse by Claire Merle and Glitch with me.

Now, here are those scape-goats that I've tagged:








Since I only tagged 7 blogs out of the needed 11 (Wow, socially awkward in blogosphere or what? Now, I feel embarrassed. Good thing I'm basically shameless on Internet (; ) I'll only ask 7 questions as well.
Now, my 7 prying questions for all you unluckily tagged:

1. How long have you been blogging?

2. What's your most anticipated read of 2012?

3. What are you reading right now?

4. If you could meet any author, which one would it be?

5. Which book or book series would you like to be turned into a movie?

6. From where do you mostly buy your books?

7. Harry Potter vs Twilight vs The Hunger Games?


  1. Hey! Thanks for the award! :D

    I'm guessing we're kinda similar, from what I gather from your 11 facts about yourself! And your answers are interesting (so are the questions). Yay for the ravens tattoo! ;)

    If it's alright, may I have your e-mail id? I've a few things to ask!

    1. Also, 1 Nov! I totally understand that love for 1s.. My birth date has just 1 and 9 in it. And the date? Nov 9! :D

    2. Your welcome :)
      Sure, my mail:
      It would be great to know someone with similiar tastes!

  2. Thanks for the tag!:)
    Facts #3 and #4 - me too!:)

  3. Hi Priya, thanks for tagging me. But I am not sure what has to be i just answer the 7 questions?

    1. It's your choice. Make a post about it, telling in short what the award is, then tell 11 facts about yourself, answer the questions and if you want you can tag other bloggers with less than 300 followers, tag them in your post, ask them to answer a few questions, too. All of this optional, if there is anything you are not comfortable with then don't do it.

    2. Great, got it now :-) will update my blog, will have to think over the answers...

    3. Done! At least the question - answer part, the hunt for future candidates is on...
      You can read the answers here ...
