Hey Pals!! Today, I will share some bookish facts about me with you all. So, I was tagged for this by the lovely Claudia @ Claudia Reads Books, long ago. Go and visit her site, it’s pretty cool, filled with loads and loads of bookish content. She’s on a hiatus right now though.
So here are: 25 Bookish Facts About Me 😀.
1: I began reading novels when I was probably 8 or 9 (maybe even 7) and my first novel was The Secret Seven by Enid Blyton. I credit my sister for making me a reader today because she was the one who gifted me this novel and also the one who brought me more and more books to read over the past years.
2: Every year, on my birthday, I have made it a tradition to ask for a book series as a gift and since it’s my special day, my parents can’t deny 😁.
3: I am really guilty for having 90% of the books on my TBR pile to be hyped ones. I can’t help it, they just draw my attention 😍.
4: When I don’t wanna lend out my books to someone, I don’t really refuse, all I say is that it’s with my best friend and I look at her meaningfully so she immediately exclaims just how long it would take her to finish it 😜. We both are…
5: Before starting a book, I usually used to look it up on Common Sense Media to see if it’s appropriate.
6: Often, when I am alone in my room, I pretend to make Booktube videos. And don’t tell me you’ve never done that because I know you have. It’s just so fun.
7: Once, I told my History Teacher that at times I actually read novels during her class, she said that that’s good. I thought she’d misheard me or something so I repeated the theory, emphasizing that I read novels when she teaches History. Her reply: “But at least you are reading something!” I just hope she wasn’t being sarcastic 🙂.
8: I don’t have a signed copy of any book 😒.
9: At times, I feel genuinely sad for not receiving my Hogwarts Letter 😫. And believe me, I am still waiting because I still have some hope. And guess what, I’ll wait for as long as it takes, even if it means waiting forever! I’ll be here Hogwarts, waiting…and….waiting and still waiting.
10: I have a habit of reading a cute moment between two characters over and over until I get bored of it 🤭.
11: I love unpopular opinions about literally any book, I find them really interesting.
12: I love DNFing books.
13: At times, I don’t feel like watching certain movie adaptations just because I think that they might ruin the way I imagine the characters look.
14: I only read e-books as a last resort. I prefer physical ones and audiobooks over ebooks.
15: I Love Books
15: My favorite genres are historical fiction, science fiction and dystopian.
16: I actually have two accounts on GoodReads. I was never able to log in to my previous account so I had to create another one as I had forgotten the password, but it’s still there, lol.
17: I prefer hardcovers over paperbacks.
18: When I first saw a Booktube video, it took me a really long time to accept the fact that many people actually own more than 100 books. But hey! I was very young then and had only 20 books or something. So you can’t blame me!!
19: Here’s an unpopular opinion: I definitely do not HATE the Percy Jackson movies though I do strongly believe that they weren’t good.
20: I heard my first audiobook in 2019 on YouTube: Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White.
21: I miss visiting my school library and Hans Ma’am (our lovely librarian) so much 😭.
22: I don’t read much non-fiction, neither have I explored much of the horror, mystery and thriller genre.
23: I can easily skip parts of a book that I am not enjoying. I actually like doing that at times 😜.
24: When I was very young, I used to read Champaks and comics like Billu, Pinki, Tinkle and Chacha Chaudhary. Those were the best…😌. I miss reading them so much. I am gonna ask my dad to bring me some.
25: A few times, I have changed the lyrics of songs to fit them to make a song relatable to a reader. Like: Bad Blood, The Climb, Story of my Life 😀. Do you wanna read some?
