Welcome to the sisterhood!

I was tagged for this by the lovely Nara @ Looking for the Panacea
Thanks for the tag,Nara.

1. Have you read any Brandon Sanderson? (The answer better be yes... :P)

Okay,don't kill me Nara......but no.But don't worry,after seeing your love for his works,I am quite tempted to try atleast one book by him.
Any particular book you'd like to recommend?

2. Is there any fictional character who you would like to swap lives with?

Katniss Everdeen!Okay I am kidding.She'll be my last choice:)

It will be probably Maggie from the Inkheart series.Her dad's a bookbinder,she has an aunt with a huge house filled with books in every room except the kitchen and the bathroom,and most of all,she enters the fictional world of her favourite book and falls in love with a fictional character.
It's the impossible dream life of every book nerd,of course I'd love to swap life with her.

3. Most anticipated book of 2015?

Well,I am looking forward to Red Queen!After all those rave reviews of the debut,I am counting the days until its release.
And I am also waiting for A Court of Thorns and Roses,both because its by the amazing Sarah J.Mass and because it's a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast-my favourite fairytale ever.

4. If you could swap the covers of any two books, what would they be?

This is probably the hardest question you asked me.It took me a lot of time to come up with an answer.

I don't actually call this swapping,but consider this cover change one sided.

I've made it clear that I absolutely love The DUFF by Kody Keplinger,But as much as I love it,I hate the cover.It's horrible,and it looks as if it's intentionally trying to make Bianca look like a plain girl.
And the bubblegum?What does it even have to do with the story?

So I'll change the cover from this to


I haven't read Flicker but I just love this cover.And I think it will suit The DUFF perfectly,with the auburn hair,and the way,you automatically feel something for this girl even when you don't even see her whole face.

5. What's your favourite food?

Now,if I start talking about all my favourite Sri Lankan food,you'll all start to feel clueless:)
So I'll stick to something western,I guess.

Anything McDonald's really,Especially their burger.
Oh God,I am starting to feel hungry.

6. Was there a book in 2014 that you were anticipating that let you down?

Not exactly,but I was quite disappointed by Take Me On.I feel like the series is losing its spark with every sequel-atleast for me.

7. What was your favourite movie from 2014?

Gone Girl!Woah,man,that movie was just amazing.It was really creepy,and I was totally mind blown by it.
The actors were exceptionally great.Especially Rosamund Pike,who I hope will win the Oscar this year.
Ben Affleck was really great too.His calm and emotionless acting suited the character well.I've never thought of him as a good actor before,but he proved himself in Gone Girl.

But that doesn't mean I am accepting him as the new batman!He still can't beat Christian Bale,and I am too much of a batman fan to accept him as my favourite superhero.

Oh,okay,I am going out of topic:)

8. Is there a book that you would recommend to absolutely everyone?

The Book Thief!No matter what kind of a taste you have in books,I am sure you'll love The Book Thief.If you are still not convinced,take a look at my review,which is right below this post.

9. How much time do you spend on the internet per day?

I'd like to lie here and pretend that I actually have a social life,but what's the point?:)
Well,I wake up with the internet,go to sleep with it,except breaks for meals and bathroom.
I have become even more worse,since I have no school until May.

10. What were your five favourite reads of 2014?

Love you Nara for not asking me to pick a single favourite:)

In no particular order,
1.Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
2.Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
3.Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
4.Crown of Midnight by Sarah J.Mass
5.Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson
