Hey Pals!! Today, I am doing The Zodiac Music+Book Tag. I was tagged by the creator herself- Pannaga @ Just Dreamland, Rayna @ Rayโ€™s Realm and also by Georgia @ Lost in Neverland. Btw, many many manyyyyy congrats for coming up with the tag, Panna (I know I sound late but I started writing this post long ago). I’m so proud of you ๐Ÿคฉ. This sounds so amazing and I’m so glad to be finally doing it! Let’s begin!!

The Rules:

  • Link back to the creator, i.e, Swift Walker @Just Dreamland
  • Link back to the person who tagged you!
  • Answer all the prompts.
  • Use the original graphics and credit the creator (Pannaga).

  • You can either do the zodiac book tag/the zodiac music tag or both them. Graphics for separate tags should be given at the end.
  • Enjoy doing the post.

So, my zodiac sign izz….PISCES!!

Did I really just use that GIF!? I need to get a grip on myself…

So anyways, let’s get started, I’m so excited ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜!!

Note: View the post through the site if YouTube videos appear as links. 

Will I ever stop gushing about this book? Apparently not ๐Ÿคฉ.

No Body, No Crime by Taylor Swift. This song gives the chills!

Percy Jackson, of course! It nails it for the combination of witty and cheeky.

Usually, when I’m angry and don’t know who to go to, what to do, what to say, Brutal by Olivia Rodrigo is my go to song, lol.

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. This book will NOT tear families apart, lol. I really enjoyed it though, the tension between the characters due to the supposedly problematic love triangle kept me on the edge of my seat (not proud of that at all). I was spoiled from before hand about the love triangle and the actual chemistry so I just wanted them to end up together (not going to say who “them” are because of spoilerzzz).

Love Soooooooooooong by Why Don’t We!! Yes, if you can’t tell already, I love this song too much, and every single one by this band. So listen to their songs so we can remain friends ๐Ÿ™‚. Got it? ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ”ช

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Do I have a sensitive heart? Hm…when it comes to books, I am not sure anymore. But this book did touch me deep and is one of my favorites now!

Uh, none! ๐Ÿ™‚

My Life With The Walter Boys by Ali Novak, a guilty pleasure of mine, I just loved this book. Except of fancy dress, it has all of the above- drama, love and hope.

If We Have Each Other by Alec Benjamin. I’m not a big fan of this song but I like it, the lyrics are awesome.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. So y’all probably know by now that I do not like pitch-perfect endings in contemporaries. Hence I liked how this one did not end too happily, it ended with hope, and yes, it has all the above elements too.

Roar by Katy Perry. Oh yes, we all love this song now, don’t we!?

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This book was a big disappointment to me, it was not bad or anything, but it was not that great either. What actually blew me was how horribly real it all felt. It was a good insight into the lives of actors.

Perfect by Ed Sheeran. This is one of my favorite love songs!

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. And whoa, what an intense prompt, Panna! When I read this book, I was mind-blown to another level, it was terrifically awesome. Then I read some rant reviews on GoodReads and I came to know about the various flaws in it, but eh, I still love it. I don’t read thrillers usually, so this was a great start.

Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes. Is it just me or do you also like the tu tu tu TU tu tu at the start ๐Ÿ˜‚?

I chose Panna’s answer for this one (and dude, I did not know you have read this series). I have only read the first three books in The Mortal Instruments, and aah, I loved them, I later realized all the flaws and stuff, but I LOVED them to a whole new level when I first read them.

Mic Drop by BTS! This is one of my favorite songs by BTS. It’s not possible for me to not dance on it whenever it plays.

To avoid choosing the most obvious answers, I am going with Boy Underwater by Adam Baron. I vaguely remember this book being about friendship as well as other stuff too that was a little deeper.

Don’t Change by Why Don’t We! This is one of my favorite songs, it makes me feel so happy, I think everybody, especially girls, should hear this one.

I am not sure if I am the right one to go to for unique and quirky books (you don’t need unique and quirky books when you yourself are the most awesome combination of both ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป). But I did find The Worst Thing About my Sister by Jacqueline Wilson to be pretty quirky.

Alone, Pt 2 by Alan Walker and Ava Max. When I think of this song, it reminds of my best friend, the lyrics could just as well be for a lover, but I think they are more beautiful when you dedicate it to a friend.

Usually, I steer clear of lyrical books, I do not like beautiful, ethereal blah blah writing in stories. But The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson provided just an enough dose of lyrical for it to not be overwhelming. It also suited the atmosphere of the story really well. The second book was kinda meh, but this one was amazing!

Two Of Us by Louis Tomlinson. This is such a heartbreaking song (should I be worried that I chose a sad song for my own zodiac ๐Ÿค”). It’s dedicated to Louis’ mother who had passed away, and it’s just heart-wrenching, and yes, it portrays unconditional love.

I Tag (you can do either of the two tags btw):

To all the people I’ve tagged, there’s no pressure in doing the tag, also if you’ve already done it, that’s cool too. And do check out these blogs, they have great content.

That’s all I had for today, this was a super interesting tag. Let me know a song that you would use when you get tongue-tied ๐Ÿ˜€.

Harry Potter Emoji Quiz Results!

Hey Pals!! So a little while ago, I created a Google Form quiz where you had to guess the Harry Potter characters by emojis. Quite a lot of you participated, and today, I’ll be sharing the results ๐Ÿ˜€.

Note: Due to the fact that one of the questions was not visible to most people, I have given .5 marks to those who couldn’t attempt it. Yes, I am very generous, you can’t tell me otherwise ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. So first, here are the answers-

1: ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŽด๐Ÿ•โ€๐Ÿฆบโ˜•๐Ÿ’ญ

This is Sybill Trelawney duh! Most of you got it right. Though the emoji depicting the Grim looks kinds funny in my Android not gonna lie ๐Ÿ˜‚.

2: ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฐ๐Ÿงน๐Ÿ˜ณ

This is our Ginny Weasley. She couldn’t help blushing whenever she encountered Harry in the second book. Again, many of you got it right.

3: ๐Ÿ‘›๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ–‹๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

I am surprised that so many of you thought this was Hermione. I mean, it kinda would be, but the more accurate and intended answer was Dolores Umbridge. The pink handbad, the cat, the torturous pen especially and the final emoji, showing her smug face at building terror in the students’ faces.

See the smug look!!

4: ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅฒ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿšฝ

So yeah, I think the last two emojis are a big giveaway, and kudos to almost everyone who got it right. This is our Moaning Myrtle (quickly scratches the moaning part in case she’s lurking nearby ๐Ÿ‘€).

5: ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿฆณ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ“”

This is supposed to be Luna Lovegood. The girl has white hair (hopefully in every phone), sleepy indicates her dreamy look, and the book was all I could find for indicating the Quibbler.

6: ๐Ÿ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ”ฅ

Okay so, this kinda confused everybody, especially the fire emoji. If you haven’t figured out why I put that emoji already, I’m not telling you as it is kinda embarrassing. But this is Draco Malfoy. This is the part where movie knowledge comes in as the green apple appeared in his hands in the third and the sixth movies.

7: ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿซ‚๐Ÿ’”

Scabbers/Wormtail/Peter Pettigrew. The heart signifying betrayal.

8: ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ›๐Ÿ‘“

I can’t believe the number of people who thought this was Lupin, because seriously, it’s a half moon, and Lupin should be associated with the full moon. This is Albus Dumbledore guys! Half moon spectacles!

9: ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿฆฐ๐Ÿงน๐Ÿ‰

This is Charlie Weasley, though some of you thought it’s Harry Potter. When I copy pasted the emoji on my laptop, it had red hair. On my Android though, it has black ๐Ÿ™‚. So yeah, if you cannot tell already, this weird emoji struggle is very demotivating for making future quizzes ๐Ÿ™‚.

10: ๐Ÿช„๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿฑ

Wands Away *hem hem*.

Almost all of you couldn’t see these emojis ๐Ÿ˜ญ. So the first one is the wand emoji, then we have the emoji representing “no”, then the angry emoji, and then the cat emojis. So this is not McGonagall or Hermione, because the first two emojis don’t fit them. This is supposed to Argus Filch (no wand, coz he is a squib), or Umbridge (since I realized the emojis are just as valid on her as on Filch).

11: ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ’€

This is Voldemort duh, many of you guessed it.

12: ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป

Most of you thought this was Sirius Black, but this is Remus Lupin, or Fenrir Greyback. The emoji is not of a dog, but of a wolf. Both the characters are werewolves.

13: ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’€

For this one, I’m accepting Nagini and Salazar Slytherin. It was supposed to be Nagini, but since loads of you also did Slytherin, I realized it does fit the emojis. I’m not accepting Voldemort though, I already did him before with more precise emojis. 

14: ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ‘’๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ“

This is Rita Skeeter, or as I would like to put it, the annoying animagus.

15: ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ‘๏ธโ€๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ๐Ÿชต๐Ÿฆต๐Ÿผ

Mad Eye Moody/Alastor Moody. The eye emoji, the emoji that could mean mad and the wooden leg.

Now for the scores (I have highlighted the winner)-

Ipsita- 9/15
Ayaana- 3/15
Aanya- 8.5/15
Panna- 13/15
Riya- 7/15
Naemi- 12/15
Shweta- 12/15
Rayna- 7/15
Roshni- 11/15
Inaya- 10/15
Silver Stone- 8/15
Akriti- 9/15
Jan- 7/15
Akshita- 1/15
Meg- 5.5/15
Rishika- 7/15
Sep- 9.5/15
Riddhi- 7.5/15
Khushi- 10/15
Selina- 3/10
Kripaa- 8/15

The urge to use ๐Ÿ™‚ this emoji after Akshita’s name was very strong, I have to tell you.

The winner is- Pannagrasi @ The Tomboy’s Attic ๐Ÿ˜ƒโœจ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ (and no, it wasn’t a typo)

Yo go girl! Congratulaaaaaaations!!!!

Thou hath proved thine Potterheadness. And I’m very proud of thee ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‡. 

That was all I had for today. Thanks so much for participating pals ๐Ÿคง, you made my day really. Stay tuned for more fun posts!

Mid Year Book Freakout Tag 2021 (Is half the year gone already ๐Ÿ˜ถ?)

No way, absolutely no freaking way do I accept to believe that half the year is gone and all I did was sit back and procrastinate.

Hey Pals!! No but seriously, I literally freaked out when I realized half the year is gone ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. Like did anybody even notice!? Well I so didn’t until various bloggers’ Mid Year tags started popping up on my Reader and I was “shook”. But anyways, today I am doing one my favourite book tags, and that is The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag.

Click here to check out the tag I did in 2020.

For those unaware, this tag is basically done around June and July when the half the year has passed, and it is just a fun analysis of how your reading year has been so far.

Sounds fun, eh? ๐Ÿ˜ Let’s do this!!

So I haven’t read that many books so far ๐Ÿ˜ญ. I’ve only managed to finish 29 books (excluding the one I DNFed and the ones I am currently reading) ๐Ÿ˜ญ, which is killing me coz I think that’s too less ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Last year I had read 55 books by mid-July ๐Ÿ˜ญ so this is a huge downfall ๐Ÿ˜ญ. But you probably don’t wanna see me rant here ๐Ÿ˜ญ (bad friends) ๐Ÿ˜ญ, so I’ll just get on with the tag ๐Ÿ˜ญ:

1: Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2021 ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Okay, I’m stopping with the crying emojis now~

For this one, I’ll be taking The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (yes, it wasn’t even hard to pick just one book, that’s how less books I’ve read so far ๐Ÿคง). This book is just plain beautiful. That’s the only way to describe it. It’s a heart-wrenching tale and by the end, even though I didn’t cry throughout the entirety of the book, I felt my eyes wet a little because that ending was just…๐Ÿ˜ญ (this is me forgetting I promised not to use this emoji). So yeah, this book is definitely my favorite one far this year so far.

2: Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2021

Once again ๐Ÿ˜ญ, haven’t read enough sequels, but A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir was a fantastic sequel. While I didn’t enjoy the second book in The Ember Quartet series, I really loved this one and I’m hoping to get to the final book soon.

3: New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To

There could be a lot of answers for this one, but I’m gonna go for Sunkissed by Kasie West.

4: Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year

*Ahem* none actually ๐Ÿ˜ถ.

5: Biggest Disappointment

This is another one I have quite a few answers for. But I’m going for A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’engle. I actually reread this book because I had loved it the first time I had read it, so I was hoping to love it again, but…it was awful! This was absolutely terrible. I marvel at the fact that I once gave this book 5 stars and now I’m giving it 1 star ๐Ÿ˜. I’ll do a full review because my thoughts are too wild to fit into one small paragraph.

6: Biggest Surprise

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. This is my first book by this author and I hadn’t expected to like it this much, I definitely expected to enjoy it but I didn’t expect that it would be so…sweet? And deep even.

7: New Favourite Author (Debut or New to You)

I’m going for Khaled Hosseini for this one, with Karen M. McManus as close second. Though I’ve only read The Kite Runner by Hosseini so far, I’m definitely planning to read more books by him because I just loved that book. As for Karen McManus, she has an amazing way of writing books that have that addicting vibe to them and you can’t put them down until you’re done with the story.

8: Newest Fictional Crush

Omg! So many, unlike last year when I had none. But the one who is totally owning my heart right now is Nate Macauley from One Of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. That boy, aah I love him so much ๐Ÿ˜.

9: A Book That Made You Cry

None actually, but I almost cried at ending of The Kite Runner and I spent the whole day bawling over All The Light We Cannot See too, but the tears didn’t come. So yeah, almost cried.

10: A Book That Made You Happy

None ๐Ÿ™‚.

11: What Books do You Beed to Read by the End of the Year

You really wanna know? Sure, I’ll give you a little glimpse of my TBR ๐Ÿ™‚

As if I’ll be able to finish these by the end of the year. It’ll be a miracle if I am able to finish them before Ragnarok ๐Ÿ™‚.

For real though, I’ve had this list made since the last 3 years or something and I’ve barely been able to remove 4-5 series from this list ๐Ÿ˜ช.

So anyways, I’m hoping to read A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir by the end of this year. And also reread at least 3 Harry Potter books.

Considering we don’t usually tag anybody for this tag, feel free to do it of you are interested. I had so much fun doing this ๐Ÿ˜€. Let me know how many books you read this year so far, or maybe don’t, because if it is more than mine, I’ll just keep crying even more ๐Ÿ˜ญ. I’m just kidding by the way, do lemme know down in the comments ๐Ÿ˜‚.

I hope you enjoyed seeing me bawl reading the post ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

The Evermore Book Tag

Hey Pals!! Today, in honor of the latest album released by Taylor Swift, I am doing The Evermore Book Tag (I just realized the album isn’t latest anymore, but when I wrote this post, it was ๐Ÿ˜‚). I was tagged for this by Ahaana @ Windows to Worlds. She also happens to be the creator of the tag, so thanks to her for coming up with such a fun tag as well as for tagging me. And guys, she even started her own Booktube Channel!!! Do visit her site and channel, it’s really nice.

The Rules:

willow: a book with a character you canโ€™t help but fall in love with

The Magnus Chase trilogy by Rick Riordan. I love every character in this book (well, like every character except the ones who are nasty gods or evil fathers). I specifically love Magnus. He’s just got a genuine sense of humor that cracks me up everytime.

Ps- I don’t know why, but…..(please don’t kill me) I hate this song ๐Ÿค

champagne problems: a book with a broken relationship

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. When I finished this book, it kinda inhabited a major portion of my brain. Cath and Wren are two twins, and Wren decides to do her own thing when they go to college, which includes leaving her sister behind to deal with everything on her own. So yeah, it does have a broken relationship.

gold rush: a book you love with all your heart

I’ll never stop saying just how much I luuurv Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I have already read this book four freaking times, and you are telling me you still haven’t given it a shot!? Please read this book, it is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!

Pro tip: listen to the audiobook narrated by the author himself.

โ€™tis the damn season: a book in which the character reconnects with their family/hometown

I honestly have no idea

tolerate it: a book with a suffering relationship

Gotta go with Fangirl again, can’t think of anything else.

no body, no crime: a book about murder

Oh man, I love this song! Brings all the right chillzz.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I remember reading this book with my sister and dnfing it right when things were about to start, lol ๐Ÿ˜›. I should pick it up soon or else the book blogging community might come at me with 10 foot long swords in their hands.

happiness: a book thatโ€™s an old favorite, but you just canโ€™t relate to anymore

The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse by Nicholas Gannon. I read this book two years ago and as soon as I finished it, I declared it to be one of my all time favorites because that was the amount of fun I had reading it. But looking back on it, it was a pretty forgettable read and even though I loved it then, I can’t say I love it anymore, it’s still a pretty great book and one I recommend even now, but I am over my love for it now.

dorothea: a book featuring an old (or strong) friendships

This friendship is goals

coney island: a book that made you cry // completely destroyed you

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. Well, a character died in this book, and the way the death affected Harry was just intolerable and so heartbreaking, how could I have possibly stopped my eyes from leaking!?

ivy: a book that was an unexpected favorite

A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket. I still have a lot of issues with this series but the first book was really really good. Not to mention, the narration by Tim Curry brought life to these characters.

cowboy like me: a book about thieves, or criminals

Yeah well apparently, I can only think of Aladdin right now, and I don’t know a book I’ve read that has thieves in it. Ah wait, I just remembered.. how about… The Book Thief…๐Ÿ˜ƒ?

I know I’m very smart *pats herself on the back, smiling evilly*.

long story short: a book that made up your childhood

Enid Blyton’s book series’- The Famous Five and The Secret Seven sparked my love for reading and I still love them a lot. Her characters are always so fun.

marjorie: a book with a moving message

Heidi by Johanna Spyri. This is another one of my favorite books though I think I have read the abridged version of it, but who cares? I love the characters and the setting. It takes place in the Swiss Alps and one of the major themes of this book, as I find it, is the healing powers and the beauty of nature. Just how big an impact nature can have on a person is very well portrayed through this novel.

closure: a series in which you NEED to read the next book

I really love The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken but I haven’t read the second book yet, something I feel ashamed of, but something I was never quite in the mood of. Hopefully, I’ll pick it up soon.

evermore: the perfect conclusion to an extremely long (but worth it) series

I haven’t read many “long” series, and the one that I have read had an awful conclusion so…

I Tag: Being the very generous person that I am ๐Ÿ˜‡, I tag Anyone and Everyone who wants to this. If you are a book lover or a Swiftie, do give this tag a shot ๐Ÿ˜€.

Results! Guess the Book Blogger Challenge

Sorry for the stupid featured image, hehe ๐Ÿ˜.

Hey Pals!! So a few days ago, I created a Google Form where I gave hints to 10 book bloggers and y’all were supposed to guess which ones they were. The time for submission has ended, but if you’re interested, you can still give it a shot here ๐Ÿ˜‰.

So, since I am sure some of you were interested to know the right answers, I’ve decided to share them! So…

1: A female blogger who can be easily found in books yet is lost in a place that begins with the first letter of my name-

This is Georgia @ Lost in Neverland. Though one of you guessed Lost in Narnia, which I have to admit was pretty cool thinking โœจ, but well…

2: One of the collaborators of my second site “That Weird Club”, this teen girl has already published two books and her site name screams “POTTERHEAD!”

Potterhead Aanya @ Soaring Firebolt, of course! Or as I would like to call her, the tech girl.

3: The blog name with the alliteration of the letter “m”, this book blogger can’t help but gush about their love for The Lord of the Rings as much as possible

Millay @ Millay’s Musings. I guess this one was a little hard, considering a lot of people love Lord of the Rings, but the alliteration of “m” kinda gave a good hint.

4: This book blogger has a GoodReads Club with another blogger. A few months ago, she changed her blog name to something related to books and thunder.

Cherelle @ A Bolt Out of the Book For those of you who don’t know, she started a really fun book club called “Books Go Boom” with Ashmita @ The Fictional Journal.ย 

5: This book blogger shares her first name with a month, and her site name suggests that she can easily be found reading till 12 am.

This is April @ Booked Till Midnight. You get the 12 am part now, huh? I know I’m smart ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

6: This person is pretty much anonymous, if you can call naming yourself the french version of “me” as anonymous, haha.

So many of you nailed this one simple because you know that “me” in French is “moi” ๐Ÿ˜‚. This is Definitely Moi @ Bookish Blunders.

7: Once having written what a “best” selling story looks like, and often known for sweet, long comments, this blogger can be associated with the animal- owl.

These hints would definitely be hard if you haven’t interested with the person, but it’s also accurate. This is Naemi @ A Book Owl’s Corner ๐Ÿฆ‡

8: This book blogger shares her name with a red coloured fruit (and no, her name is not apple). It seems like all the letters she sends somehow get lost.

Okay, this is not me ๐Ÿ˜‚. So many of you thought it was me, I mean okay, my bitmoji has an apple in it but as far as I know, “Nehal” is not the name of any fruit. This blogger is Cherry @ Letters To The Lost.

9: A big fan of Les Miserables, this book blogger’s site name is the bookish equivalent to “One Minute More”.

This is Julie @ One Book More. If you didn’t know, well now you do.ย 

10: This Indian blogger, often mistaken for foreign due to her non-Indian kinda name, will kill you if you insult Six of Crows in front of her and has the pic of a catterpillar for a profile.

Another one I guess the hint was kinda hard of. This is Rachel @ A Bookworm’s Paradise, the book”worm” emoji and the non-Indian name.ย ย ย 

So, these were the answers! I’m not revealing the scores of everyone here, if you want to know yours, let me know in the comments. But I’m gonna reveal the winners. They are:

Riddhi @ Whispering Stories and Tiction @ Fictionally Crazy! As per the rules, both of them get to do a fun collab with me!!

Believe me when I say I haven’t done any partiality ๐Ÿ˜‚. The two got all 10/10 answers right! Like wow!

That’s all for today. Comment me if you want to know your score. Hope you had fun! And a big thanks to everyone who participated, ’cause a lot of you participated ๐Ÿ˜, and you totally made it worth it! Stay tuned for more fun challenges ๐Ÿ˜€.

Guess the Book Blogger Challenge!

Hey Pals!! Today, we’re doing a fun challenge ๐Ÿ˜Ž. I came up with this on my own *pats herself on the back* though as I’m writing this, I’m still not sure what I’m about to do, but sometimes, you just gotta go with the flow you know? Thinking things through all the time is super stressful!

So anyways, in today’s post, you basically have to guess the book blogger by the hint I give!!

I’m thinking not sticking to anything specific when it comes to hints, so the hints are just gonna be random. Let’s start!

The Rules:

  1. There are 10 book bloggers I have randomly chosen (randomly so not being partial).
  2. I’ll give a particular hint regarding each blogger, and you all need to guess them by that.
  3. When you’re done, you’ll need to write down the answers in The Google Form so it doesn’t get complicated.
  4. That’s all! Just have fun.

The one(s) who guesses the most right, gets to do a fun collab with me!!

So, sounds nice, eh ๐Ÿ˜!? Fill out the Google Form here, and know just how well-versed into the book blogging community you are. You never know, you could be one of the bloggers in the list!

So good luck! I hope you have fun.

The Feelings Tag and The End of 2020 Superlatives Tag

The Feelings Tag

Hey Pals!! Today, I am doing The Feelings Tag. This tag was created by Jheel @ย fantasybookworm. I was tagged by the lovely Jheel herself (looooong time back, sorry for being late ๐Ÿ˜ž) and also by Esdi @ Esdi Blogs. Thanks to both of them for tagging me, do have a look at their sites, they are lovely! โœจ

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and give a link to the blog.
  • Answer the 5 feelings given to you.
  • Write the reason in 5 to 6 lines of why does that particular book come under that feeling.
  • Nominate between 5-12 other bloggers.
  • Give your nominees 5 feelings too.
  • Notify your nominees once youโ€™ve uploaded your post.

A book that made me cry all day!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I didn’t necessarily cry all day but this book did make me cry and gave me a hangover that lasted for quite a few days both the times that I read it. The last few chapters were just too gloomy, too well-written and too deep.

A book that was not that great…..

I can pick a LOT of books for this one but I’ll just go for this

Tunnel of Bones by V.E. Schwab. This is the sequel to City of Ghosts and I really liked that book which made me have high expectations for this one but I didn’t end up loving it as I had expected. This book felt really flat and obvious, I mean, it did have a fine plot but it wasn’t powerful. I wish I had liked it because I wanted to, but it was not that great….

A book that was next to perfection!

This is me thinking really hard about this question

Umm… I don’t really know. I don’t think that any book that I read, no matter how much I loved it, was just next to perfection ๐Ÿ˜…. This question shouldn’t be that hard but I can’t come up with anything. What would your answer be?

A book that touched my heart deep within.

Here, I’ll mention a book that I don’t talk about much and that is The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I read it two or three years ago and I all I can say is that I fell in love with this book and this author since then. This is a deep, dark book with a magical feeling to it. I loved these characters, the illustrations, the writing style that seemed to flow like magic and I loved the ending. This book did indeed touch my heart and I highly recommend it, you should give it a try. I might even do a full book review ๐Ÿ˜‰.

A book that is above all the books ever written

Again, a hard one, so forgive me for choosing something really obvious…

I Tag:

My Questions To You:

  • A book that always gives you giggling vibes.
  • A book that was neither good nor bad.
  • A book character that always made you roll your eyes.
  • A book that was way too deep for you to enjoy.
  • A book you did the mistake of reading during a slump.

End of 2020 Superlatives Tag

I was tagged for this by Alicia @ A Colorful Bibliophile and Naemi @ A Book Owl’s Corner. Both of them have some *epic* content for bookworms, so make sure to visit their blogs. As for the tag, let’s dive right in!


  • Fill out each of the prompts with your answer. Each character/book you chooseย has to be one you read in 2020.
  • Tag as many or few people as you want, but preferably somewhere around 10.
  • Have fun and happy new year!!

Best Villain

Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events. He…aah, he’s such a well written character. From finding him totally stupid to hating him more than anyone to feeling some weird sort of pity for him, I felt a lot of emotions for Count Olaf, and overall he made a perfect and entertaining villain.

Best Protagonist

Magnus Chase!! He makes an amazing protagonist, and a great friend. Oh, and his humor, boy is it awesome.

Best Side Character

Celeste from The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I don’t really know why, but Celeste felt like the finest character that this author created for this series. Especially in The One, I really liked her in that book.

Tough Luck– A character you’re glad you aren’t

Laia from An Ember in the Ashes. She undoubtedly goes through a lot in this book and I would never want to be in her place.

Best Place to Raise a Family– A setting, in another world, you wouldn’t mind settling in

Well, I did reread Harry Potter in 2020 so…๐Ÿ˜œ

Uninhabitable– A setting you would never want to live in

The Hunger Games…pretty self explanatory, I am sure *shudders*.

Most Likely to Succeed– An indie or under hyped book that everyone would like if they just tried it

The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonsek Lee. This is the true story of a girl who escaped North Korea, and it followed her journey into China and beyond. I was utterly mesmerized while reading this book. Like this book, it hit hard man. It really did.

Life of the Party– A book that kept you laughing and having a good time

Big Nate: The Boy with the Biggest Head in the World. This is by far the funniest book I’ve read and that says a lot. I couldn’t control my laughter reading it, so if you haven’t read it, I’m telling you, it’s worth a shot.

Most Unforgettable– A book you couldn’t forget if you tried

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I have read this book four freaking times in the past months, and my love for it has not reduced in the slightest. I’ve gushed about this book so much already, that if you still haven’t read it…how come!?!???

Most Unique– A book unlike anything you’ve ever read before

Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. It deals with important issues like death and gun violence. The concept of this book is pretty awesome and the execution kind of brought about the meaning of the book in a more profound way. It’s written in verse and takes place majorly in a freaking elevator. The execution was everything in this book. The fact that it’s so short, and yet conveys such a strong meaning is just mind blowing.

I Tag:

That’s it. I had loads of fun doing these tags ๐Ÿ˜€. Let me know the best bookish villain that you read about in 2020, down in the comments.

Baby It’s C-c-c-cold Outside Boo-oo-ook Tag *shivers*

Hey Pa-pa-pa-pals!! Today I am doing The *aachoo* Baby It’s Cold *aachoo* Outside Book Tag.

I was tagged for this by Riddhi @ Shivering Stori– I mean Whispering Stories and Tiction @ Fictionally Crazy. Both amazing bloggers whose names you might’ve come across several times in my blogs so go check them out. As for the tag, it’s pretty cool (no pun intended, as always ๐Ÿ™‚), so I decided to do it. Let’s go!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you and link to their post.
  • Display the banner (copy and paste).
  • Link to the original creator: Erin @ Reading On A Star.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Tag however many people as you want.

1: Snow Day โ€“ Whatโ€™s your โ€œcomfortโ€ book?

Without explanation, I’ll just go for Harry Potter ๐Ÿ˜€.

2: Snow Angels โ€“ Whatโ€™s a book that you love so much you would want to be buried with it

No point in denying that I love The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman but the fact that’s it’s a “graveyard” will kinda keep up with the atmosphere after death so…I hope that wasn’t too depressing ๐Ÿ˜‚.

3: Warm Socks โ€“ Whatโ€™s a book that makes you feel warm inside (The fluffiest, cutest romance youโ€™ve ever read)?

That I haven’t read many romances ๐Ÿ˜›. There are several that I really enjoyed like P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han, but none of them makes me feel warm inside so I can’t say…

4: Hot Cocoa โ€“ What winter-themed novels have you previously read?

Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. This is the only one I remember reading that is winter themed, it takes place in New York during Christmas time and I purely read it because of the Netflix Series, which I’m proud to say, I have finally watched.

5: Sledding โ€“ Whatโ€™s a book with the best plot twists? Whoโ€™s an author that always keeps you on your toes?

The book will have to be The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Brcaken as the ending shook me to the core. I haven’t read the last two books yet though. The authors will be JK Rowling and Rick Riordan. Both of them have terrific plots and the constant danger of the death of our favorite characters.

6: Ugly Sweaters โ€“ Whatโ€™s a book with the ugliest cover?

These are a cover edition for The Hunger Games trilogy. I don’t even want to talk about them.

Hold up, do these covers actually exist or did someone play a random joke on me ๐Ÿ˜‚!?

7: Movie Marathon โ€“ Whatโ€™s the last book you binge read? 

Paper Towns by John Green. I was super excited to pick up this book and the Margo mystery was so intriguing that I could hardly put it down. It wasn’t a great book, but one of my quick reads.

8: Letter to Santa โ€“ Whatโ€™s a book thatโ€™s on your wishlist this year?

Wish he was real ๐Ÿ˜•

I think it’s time to finally pick up Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger or its blogger fans might vitually kill me ๐Ÿค.

I Tag:

That’s all. Thanks for reading. Let me know if it’s cold at your place too. Stay Warm *aa-aa-aa-choooo*. Adiรณs ๐Ÿคง!!
