Q: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

A: I don’t know if I would have done anything differently. I am not saying that I did everything right but I just started my blog 3 months back. I think it will take me some time to really understand where I went wrong. 😛
When I started I knew nothing about html and  designing. I knew nothing about anything but I learned something everyday and I hope to keep on learning!

                    Our Feature –Read It, Read It, Loved It

Q: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?

A book can change my mood so if I am upset about something I pick up a sweet story that I have read before (I don’t take risks) and re-read it. I generally pick up romance or a light summer read like Along for the ride by Sarah Dessen or Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles or Anna and the french kiss by Stephanie Perkins.

Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

I love reading and after reading a book I can’t help but talk about it. One of my friends told me about Goodreads, and I joined the site. I met some amazing people, read some great books and wrote some reviews.
 There I saw that almost everyone has a blog and they get to chat with authors and get ARC’s. Also, there were some great giveaways and a chance to get free book is so exciting. 
So, I started blogging and I am having so much fun.

Q: Birthday Wishes — Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake…who is it and what book are they from?

A: There are so many characters that I would wish for….*sigh*

1) Adam from “Where she Went”

“You don’t share me. You own me.” 

2) Etienne from “Anna and the French Kiss”

“I’m a little distracted by this English French American Boy Masterpiece.” 

Also, If Ian Somerhalder, could pop out of my cake. I would really like that!! 😉

Q: If you could “unread” a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

A: Every book that I have ever read has taught me something, and I don’t think I hated any book so much that I would like to unread it. 

To experience it all over again, I would also choose Harry Potter. 
The first time I read Harry Potter was so amazing. I was 11 and was desperately waiting to get my Hogwarts letter (I am still waiting). I believed it all, (I still do).  
The pure joy, the excitement when a new book was about to be released. I used to stand in line to get a copy. I have never done that with any other book.    
To read fan-fictions and have a fight with my friends over Harry Potter (Some stupid people think that the movie is better than the book). 
I cried so much after reading the last book. I never wanted it to end, so to experience it all over again. To learn about quidditch again, to be a part of that magical world again,  would be so great. 
Harry Potter made me a book nerd and I thank J.K. Rowling for that.

Q: Happy Father’s Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?

A: There aren’t many fathers in YA novels, now that I think about it. What a shame!
Anyways my most favorite dad would be Mr Weasley. He loved his children and was honest and kind. 


Some more Dads that I like:
Sirius was an amazing Godfather. He cared deeply about Harry and it’s a shame he dies and never gets to have a proper family.

Also, Jamie from Lock and Key by Sarah dessen was amazing. Yes, I know that he was not Ruby’s  dad but he was someone who took care of her and made her life better. I think that counts.

And, lastly, Abe from Vampire Academy. He was cool and cared about Rose in his own way.
