The Liebster Blog Award. (Get to know me more)

Hey guys
Long time no post yeah? I know, right. That was the same thing I said to myself a day before. I didn't expect that to change as I have my neck deep in exams and I'm currently a convalescent. I just checked my mail and to my amazement, I realised that Tobi of journalthreesixty nominated me for the Liebster Award. I've always seen the Liebster Award thingy on blogs even before I started blogging but I didn't expect to join in on the fun so fast. Thanks Tobi 💋

The rules of the Award are quite simple. All that has to be done is


– Thank the blogger who nominated you.

– Display the Liebster Badge on your site.

– Answer the questions that were sent.

– Choose 5 (to 11) blogs to nominate.

– Send 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted a space to share my musings, findings and also to inspire others. Also because I needed a healthy distraction from school work.
2. Apart from blogging, what else do you do?
Study. Study. Study. I'm an Undergraduate.
3. Favourite music at the moment?
None. Weird? Not weird? Whatever.
4. Describe yourself in one sentence
I'm not just another pretty face. (Subtle, very subtle I know hahaha)
5. What's the first thing on your bucket list?
It's safe to say I don't have a bucket list at least not one with a scale of preference but to go to Athens, Greece is definitely gonna top the list.
6. What won't you be caught eating?
Anything that's not edible. Lool, I'm not a foodie, believe me.
7. What/who inspires you?
Happenings around me. Everyday occurrences in general.
8. Any Phobia?
Yes!! Literally everything there is to be scared of. Especially animals.
9. Are you a planner or spontaneous?
I'm somewhat in between. I make plans but they tend to change so I just go with the flow.
10. Share one lesson you've learnt as a blogger
Never compare your blog journey with that of others.

For someone who would rather not be at the receiving end of questions, I enjoyed answering Tobi's questions.

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham

A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

Don't you just love how February flew by quickly? I definitely do and it came with lots of fun and of course, reading.. It feels just like yesterday when I published this POST  on the books I read in January and now it's time to write about the ones in February.
As there's only 28 days in February, I actually thought I'd be able to complete only 3 books but I'm typing this on the 26th day and I was able to go through 5 books! It however isn't in the numbers but in how each book eventually makes one a better person.

Enough digression, I initially planned to read mature romance novels because month of love but after the way the first book I read made me feel, I changed course immediately and went on to read other genres touching topics ranging from racism, colonialism to holocaust stories to a young adult medical fiction and even a children's storybook!

1. STILL ME - Jojo Moyes

If you've seen the movie 'Me Before You' or read the book, then you&#…

A Literary Conversation|MARCH

Unlike in February when I had a theme of books to read, in March, I did not. I just randomly compiled books I assumed I would enjoy and I enjoyed all 4.

RELATED: A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

1. THE KITE RUNNER - Khaled Hosseini
This book guys, would swallow you up. It's actually a very sad book and I expected this because I've read a book by the same author where I almost shed tears but this blew my imaginations. You know, at some point I just stopped mid sentence and wondered for the umpteenth time how one person could be so talented and make so many emotions come up with words! I actually felt like I've never read before. Lol.

PLOT: This book was set in Afghanistan and the protagonist is Amir who lost his mother immediately after she gave birth to him and who throughout his childhood tried hard to win his father's love while also having fun with his best friend, Hassan who is also the son of his father's servant. Amir watches Hassan being bullied and abuse…
