Here are the rules:
List 11 facts about yourself.
Answer the 11 questions asked by whoever nominated you.
Ask 11 new questions to 9 bloggers with less than 200 followers (You cannot re-nominate the blog that nominated you).

11 Facts about me:
  1. I am an introvert if there ever was one, I am a book person not a people person.
  2. I am a nerd and I am proud as much as I am proud of being a bookworm I don't really need to tell you how huge a bookworm I am do I :)
  3. I very self conscious, shy and emotional. I get embarrassed very very easily even when there is nothing to be embarrassed about.
  4. I am a night person. You really don't want to be near me in the morning.
  5. I am a realist but I am very imaginative, creative and tend to think outside the box.
  6. Other than reading I love baking, gaming, walking underneath the starry sky, studying, talking about books,watching movies and TV, travelling, and shopping.
  7. The few things that I hate with extremely violent passion are bullies, spoilers, racists and sexists.
  8. I believe knowledge can solve all the problems of our lives no matter what they may be but imagination is the greatest power yielded by man.
  9. I am very awkward and a bit uptight sometimes, the first impression that people usually have of me is the innocent and quite one and then the innocent and weird one but my close friends know how mischievous and naughty I can be if I want to ;)
  10. I treat people the way they treat me.
  11. 99.9% of  people don't understand me. I am usually misunderstood by people even those who are very close to me but, I guess that's the story of everyone :)
11 Questions from Bibliobrat Jackie of Bibliobrat:
1.  What is the first book you can remember reading for leisure?
I love this question because it brings back so many good memories and I spent quite a while thinking about it as far as I can remember the first book that I read for leisure was Lady and the Tramp I bought it at the airport book store when I was a kid and I don't remember exactly how old I was I do remember loving it tough :)
2.  What is your least favourite genre?
I don't really think I have a least favourite genre, I haven't really read many genres but I read non-fiction the least so I guess you could call it my least favourite.
3.  What book do you most relate to?
Ok this may sound oblique and lame but I haven't really read a book yet that I could relate to at a great level there are several books with which I can relate to a few parts a few character in some ways and considering the books I read (sci-fi, high fantasy, dystopian, urban etc) you can't really relate to there stories you can relate to the characters or there action so ya :)
122163024.  If you could be best friends with a book (or movie) character of your choice, who would you pick?
Harry Black Stone Copperfield Dresden hell yes or Karrin Murphy both are from The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher I absolutely ADORE these character and wish to kick monstrous ass (since it's an Urban Fantasy) with them.
5.  What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?
Catching Fire! loved it <3

11.  Who is your favorite author?

Jim Butcher ! LOVE The Dresden Files It's a series and it hasn't been completed yet there are about 14 books released and the series is supposed to be 22-25 books long.  I don't wait as eagerly for any other books as I do for his books.
11 Questions from Witless Fool of Obsessive Compulsive Reader:
1. Favourite place(s) to read.
My favourite place to read is my bed at night with the lights off (I read ebooks) snuggled up in my blanket because that's the only place I can read comfortably without any distraction when I read I immerse myself completely in the story and become oblivious to surroundings, I make all the weird faces of emotion, I silent scream and giggle like crazy.
2. Bookshops vs library: which do you visit more often? Do you prefer buying or borrowing books?
Bookshops I just love owning a book but, I love libraries I absolutely love them even tough I don't borrow books very often.

I mostly have eBooks but I have a few books and I have donated study material but never fiction.

English is actually my second language I am a Pakistani my mother tongue is Urdu I can also read Arabic aloud but I cannot understand it, I would like to learn Persian and Latin just for fun but I don't think I am going to because learning languages is an extremely hard task.

  2. Thank you so much for thinking of me :-D so sorry it took me so long to reply. Unfortunately I'm a tad to busy to except right now. My hubby broke his hand so we've been in and out of the hospital, he finally goes for surgery on Friday, things will hopefully go back to normal then. I always try and write posts in advance, so it may seem like I've been around but I actually haven't been. Thank you for all your comments! I cherish every one of them. :-D
