Hello people! What’s up?
You know how you have to come up one thing you learnt at the end of summer programs and remember the lessons for the rest of your life? You want me to throw my light on my lesson learnt this summer; people take blogging way too seriously, and I need to catch up soon…While gaining this enlightening insight I came across some amazing book tags and fell in love with them. I saw this one at the amazing abooknation and knew from the first glance, I would be doing this book tag for sure.
Cheers to my spirit of trying something new this summer!
#1: How many books are too many in a series?
As long as the story is interesting with great character arcs and gripping plot I am fine with any number of books that the author wants to include in the series. My only condition being, releasing the books quickly!!!
#2: How do you feel about cliff-hangers?
Never read them until you have the next book in the series right next to you…
#3: Hardcover or paperback?
Hardcover when you have to make your book shelf look aesthetic and paperback when it’s time to go pocket-friendly (which seems my only choice, now-a-days :P)
#4: Favorite book?
A book I would swear by, is ‘Doctors’ by Erich Segal. It’s the right blend of emotions, drama, mystery, fiction, reality and all the elements you look forward while reading a book. Although, I wasn’t keen on reading this book before, but I guess, reading this book was one of the best decisions of my life, so far!
#5: Least Favorite Book?
Why does this happen to book lovers? This is the most difficult question, that we have to answer. Trust me, it’s hard. Jokes apart, I haven’t come across a book that I have detested reading yet and I hope, I never will.
#6: Love Triangles, yes or no?
I am always up for love triangles in books. They always leads to exciting events and reactions from the characters, that gives us more pages to read and bask in our fantasy world a little longer.
#7: A book you are currently reading?
I am reading Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler at the moment, heavy read, I know.
#8: Last book you recommended to someone?
#9: Oldest book you’ve read? (publication date)
The Swiss Family Robinson which was published in 1812. For the heads up, I own one of the oldest editions of that book!
#10: Newest book you’ve read? (publication date)
My book, ‘AN INWARD ODYSSEY’; a collection of poetry which was published last December!
#11: Favorite author?
Don’t have one. I go through different phases of reading, wherein I try different authors and genres and whichever one I like the best, more books of that particular author/genre are added to my bookshelf .
#12: Buying books or borrowing?
Buying, it’s always, buying. I am extremely offended by the idea of borrowing/lending books, and I am not even sorry for my strong opinion.
#13: A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?
Now, that’s an interesting question.I would say, P.S I love you by Cecilia Ahern.
#14: Bookmarks or dog-ears?
My heart is torn into two, when people dog-ears pages of their books. How cruel! It’s ALWAYS bookmarks!!!!
#15: A book you can always reread?
For the record, I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series seven times, then outgrew them. So I think rereading books is a good idea only till the time you are reading your favorite portions of the novel.
#16: Can you read while listening to music?
Music is my go-to companion for every chore, every task I have to accomplish even when I am writing poetry or any other literary piece. However, this companion needs to leave the room, when I am reading. I can either concentrate on the glistening words or the heartfelt lyrics at a time.
#17: One POV or multiple POVs?
Reading both kind of works, I think I lean more towards multiple POVs. It’s always better to know each character from their own perceptive as it adds more depth to the story.
#18: Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Knowing my amazing time management skills, it’s either the entire book or the ever growing list of chores that I have to tend to. So, sadly, I have to divide the book over the span of multiple days to play justice to my role both as a responsible human being and a book craving bookworm!
#19: Any book that changed your life?
This is my favorite question! ‘Born A Crime’ by Trevor Noah is one such book that hilariously taught me life lessons and made me realize how fortunate I am living my life, the way I want to. I suggest everyone should read this book, once in their lifetime.
#20: Who do you tag?
Anyone and everyone who wants to do this tag.
I know, it’s been a long time, since I have done book reviews. Well, now I know, why learning time management skills in school would have been a good idea…
Never mind, I would now make up for the lost time with numerous posts, I promise!
