11 Random Facts About Me:

  1. I'm still a big fat fan of The Vampire Diaries TV series and even after the news that Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) is saying goodbye to the series after this season, I'm still pretty much addicted to it. No, first, I thought, I was infatuated with Ian Somerhalder, but no, actually, I can't grow out of this series. Moreover, I started watching it when I was in college, so yes, this series, kinda make me feel all nostalgic about it! 
  2. Fifty Shades of Grey is probably my favorite movie till date, no I'm comparing the movie with the book, but in general, I loved the movie and have probably watched it like 3 times already. (Psst..one of my guilty pleasures!)
  3. I love to quote from the book The Great Gatsby like all the freaking time, since it's my all-time favorite book.
  4. I can't cook still! I mean I should be ashamed of myself, I'm almost 24 years old and I'm yet to learn one basic thing(necessity) in my life. 
  5. I love doing taking photographs, random moments, randoms stuffs etc, but I don't brag about it like other people.
  6. My dream job would be working in a top-shot publishing house as a publicist. And I secretly wish that my dream comes true one day.
  7.  I have cavity, so I can never ever probably gorge on chocolates or candies or anything which is way too sweet. So don't ever gift me chocolates...
  8. I love my city-Kolkata, yeah I know that's a shocker, because most of the time, I say bad things about this city, but I somehow love this broken, dilapidated and stupid old city of joy, as they call it! And that's the reason that I'm never leaving it.
  9. I'm completely and insanely addicted to Instagram, please do check it out guys, and follow me @adi_bibliophile91. 
  10. I don't love reading Young Adult genre books, to be honest and have always found myself preferring the literary fiction genre more, I mean yeah YA books are damn cool, moreover, I get to read a lot of YA because of my blog, yet still, I'm more of a literary/historical fiction genre person.
  11. I believe in magic and miracles, yeah it's too childish, but I do, and I really don't know why, but I don't like fantasy at all.

Questions from The Reading Arm Chair:

  • In what age did you start reading?
Me: Well, I don't remember the exact age, when I first had my first book of Aesop's Fables book and all those glittery Disney books from Snow White to Cinderella, but I believe I was very, very young, may be when I first learned how to read.

  • With which fictional character would you hang out  
Me: A Potterhead would always say, Harry Potter, but now that I'm bit older, I think it would be Lisbeth Salander from the book, The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo. Why? Because I never met such a kick-ass and intelligent literary character ever in my life.

Because, I want to relive that era, and I believe since this tiny little island is home to all kinds/races of peoples belonging from various cultures and societies and where people found there will to express themselves better in that era, I would rather live there, moreover, 80s fashion was way cooler than what we have now.
