I was absolutely thrilled when I got nominated for a Liebster award by The Book Lover’s Attic. Thank you so very liebstermuch !

I have linked to The Book Lover’s Attic and so now I’ll proceed to answering the ten questions.

1.What is your favorite family/holiday tradition?

We don’t have any particular holiday tradition as such, but  we love playing games together as a family during holidays and the more basic the better !

2. If you could meet any author living or dead, who would it be?

I’d love to meet Robert Jordan who wrote the colossal Wheel of Time series with a whopping 11+ books. The scale of the story is magnificient and the characters are bewitching. My mind reels just thinking about how he kept track of all the characters and their lives.

3. If you lived on a space station, what food would you insist comes with you?

No doubts whatsoever, chocolates and ice cream !

4. What is your fantasy vacation destination?

Ever since I read ‘Summer in Tuscany’ by Elizabeth Adler, that place has firmly lodged itself on the top of my list of fav destinations.

5. If you had to give away all of your books, which one would you secretly keep?

The Power Of One by Bryce Courtenay

6. Do you ever get caught singing in the car?

Singing in the car happens all the time 🙂

7. What was the first album (vinyl/cassette/CD) that you purchased for yourself?

I don’t remember very clearly, but I think it was the soundtrack of Sound of Music.

8. If you could change places with any famous person for one day, who would it be?

It would be with one of the judges of Masterchef Australia cos I’d get to taste all those awesome dishes and also do the countdown 🙂

9. Do you ever eat breakfast for dinner?

I love to do that just to break the monotony !

10. What book has had the greatest impact on your life?

The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. Whenever I go through a rough patch, I think of the protagonist of the story Peekay, who’s an eleven year old boy. He has to endure a lot but still emerges with his spirit unsullied and unbroken.Keeps me going.

So now the questions have been answered, I shall name my nominees. They are ( I rather feel like I’m attending the Oscars 🙂  )
