Thank you The Amazing Life of a Bookworm for nominating me. I am so excited to receive a nomination within a month of starting my blog. Thank you Bloggers Community for this recognition and support. It means a lot to me.

So here are my answers to The Amazing Life of a Bookworm’s Questions:

TALOAB – Who is your favorite female\male book character and why? 

Kripa’s HodgePodge – That’s easy. Healthcliff from Wuthering Heights. My one true love ❤ from the folds of the pages. I loved that he was passionate, rough,loyal,brave,rude,raw moor, and handsome. I wish I could jump into the book and become Cathy….his Cathy…*Kripa daydreams about meeting Heathcliff*

What is your favorite book? (Explain a little of the why and put your favorite quote of the book)
     * it is an eternity later after my dream with Heathcliff *

My current favorite is The Thousand Splendid Suns.I like it because I could see the cruelty of war and terrorism through ordinary but extraordinary women.

“Like a compass needle that points north, a man’s accusing finger always finds a woman. Always.”

At What age did you start reading?

  I would have to say 3 years. Yes, I was a kindergarNERDener.

What is you favorite movie?

Ummm… not a movie buff, but if I had to choose one it would be Danush’s tamil movie 3 – the first I watched with my baby 😉

If you could choose between becoming a character you love but living in this world or going to the world your favorite character lives in but you continue being you, what would you choose? (The character or world can be of anything you wish, TV show, book, movie,etc)

I have always wanted to be like Jean from the X-men. I loved her alter-ego Phoenix. So I would be Jean/Phoenix in this world.

What or who inspired you to create your blog?

Well I had been putting it off for a long time until my baby turned 23 and refused to accept any material gifts. So I started this blog as a dedication to him.

If you could choose to become a mythical creature, what would you choose?

A mermaid with the pretty sea shell bras and the pearls. Underwater living – that’s the dream.In case you are wondering, I can’t swim so it really IS a dream.

Do you have any hobbies, apart from reading?

I like handicrafts. I am  a budding handcraftsman.

Do you play any instruments? If no then, what instruments you want to learn to play? 

Guitar, Guitar!! I have been obsessed with guitar!

What are the three things you couldn’t live without? (And no, water and food or oxygen or anything of the sort don’t count)

My mobile phone, my ipod and my teddy pooh bear.

What author you wished you could meet, and why? (Authors you already met don’t count and it doesn’t matter if the author is already dead)

Neil Gaiman. That guy’s brain is a crash-bedonkle factory – those are made up words for ‘awesomatic, amaaazing…most wackiiiiiest’. I would be honored to meet him.
