Finally I am completing my first ever book tag. I have been tagged by Bookishwormy. Thank you for the tag. It is special as it is the first book tag I ever got.
On to the task now,
A- Author you have read the most books from
I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella. So that would be her.
B- Best sequel ever
This is an Indian book. The Secret of Nagas by Amish Tripathi.
C- Currently reading
I am currently listening to Haruki Murakami’s Hard boiled Wonderland and the End of the World – quite a tale!
D- Drink of choice
Tea, with a bit of ginger and no sugar. Heaven!!
E- E-reader or physical book
I have adapted quite well to E-reader. It’s affordable, portable and convenient in a lot of ways. But nothing beats a physical book. However, I read far more from my Kindle now so I vote for E-reader.
F- Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school
When I read Wuthering Heights, I had a crush on Hareton Earnshaw. So probably him.
G- Glad you gave this book a chance
The Twilight saga. I was skeptical after watching the first movie and all those negative criticisms but my friend insisted on reading them and then I ended up liking it a lot.
H- Hidden Gem
Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen. Do not dismiss it as a children’s book because it is so much more than that. If you read it deeply enough it has the power to change your perspective about a lot of things in life. It flips you!
I- Important moment in your reading life
Discovering Jane Austen books. That’s when I realized I love reading.
J- Just finished
Amber Alert by Dan Lawton
K- Kind of book you won’t read
Paranormal, creepy horror books.
L- Longest book you’ve read
Just finished “A Game of Thrones” by George R R Martin. That was one long book. Took me months and several books in between and finally finished it when I shifted from Kindle to Audiobook.
M- Major book hangover because of
Rather than a hangover, I would call it various phases of my life. The Classic hangover because of Jane Austen books, Da Vinci phase because of Dan Brown books, Twilight phase, Mythology phase because of Amish’s books, Shopaholic phase, Fantasy phase( ongoing) and Dystopian phase.
N- Number of bookshelves you own
As I have mentioned earlier, E-books are the ones that mostly fit into my budget. My Kindle library is probably bigger than my Bookshelf. Technically I have two racks of my cupboard for a bookshelf (a safe and a rack to be precise)
O- One book you’ve read multiple times
I’ve got your number by who else, Sophie Kinsella. It is such a feel-good story. Any time I feel down, I read it and the world is better again.
P- Preferred place to read
My comfy bed
Q- Quote that inspires you
“I would always rather be happy than dignified”, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre.
R- Reading regrets
I don’t normally leave a book half-way but I did once. That was when I read “Revolution 2020” by Chetan Bhagat. Why… o why!!!
S- Series you’ve started and need to finish
Scion of Ikshvaku by Amish Tripathi. It’s been almost a year since I bought the second book in the series but haven’t read it yet. Need to start soon.
T- Three of your all-time favorite books
• I’ve got your number by Sophie Kinsella (yeah I know!!)
• To kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
• Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
V- Very excited about this release more than others
OK, I am miles behind in the “Song of Ice and Fire” series but like everyone else I just want to see the next book released, “The Winds of Winter” soon.
W-Worst bookish habit
If I confess this I will probably be banished from the bookish community. Still, I am taking a chance. Before reading a book that I know is going to be emotionally heavy or just out of mere curiosity, I take a peek at the last sentence of the book. Yep, I know what can be worse, right?
X- X marks the spot: Pick the 27th book from the top left shelf
I don’t own a shelf. But on my Kindle library that would be The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Y- Your latest purchase
Final girls by Riley Sagers
Z- Z snatcher–book that kept you up way too late
Most recently, that would be Man In the High Castle by Philip K Dick
There it is, all done. Hope you enjoyed reading the book tag.

You got intersting picks there now im in the mood to read more classics!
Love your list! To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my all time favs too!
@Jee It is indeed a classic. Such a complex tale narrated through the eyes of an innocent kid. How do they do that?
Thank you for taking the time to comment.
The author is a genius! And you’re welcome 😊
@wormswormy Wow, that is so good to know. Anytime of the year, classics can always sooth your mind.
I love this tag! I’ll definitely have to try it out on my own blog – such a fun post to read, thanks for sharing. A great post! xx
Thank you for the comment. Glad that you enjoyed it 🙂
