- What makes you mark a book as ‘DNF’’?
I rarely ‘DNF’ books but I have done it, nevertheless. Its when books get long winded and extremely boring.
- What are your favourite series?
I love Harry Potter! And I love no other series like it. I do love Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series. And I quite enjoyed Hunger Games trilogy when I read it. But nothing beats HP!
- Do you have any favourite animal characters from standalones/series?
YES! I loved Buster (Fatty’s dog) from Enid Blyton’s Mystery series. I actually love all dogs in books! I also love Crookshanks even though I don’t like cats that much (blasphemy, I know!). And Hedwig.
- Have you ever read a book in one sitting, and if so, what was the book?
Quite a lot of times! I read books in one setting especially when I’m in the middle of exams. The book I read in once sitting most recently is Black Dove, White Raven by Elizabeth Wein.
- Which book made you laugh the most?
Even though its not really a ‘book’, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest had me laughing like crazy. Catcher in the Rye also made me laugh quite a few times. A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Muhammad Hanif is darkly humourous and an extremely amazing book so it makes this list too. The Crow Eaters by Bapsi Sidhwa also drew a few laughs from me. Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kinney (even though I’m not the target audience for them) are extremely very funny and I love them for making me laugh so much!
- What was the last book you bought?
Elif Shafak’s The Flea Palace.
- Have you been recommended a book that you ended up not liking?
Many times! Most recently, The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide. I have no idea why its so popular, it failed to make an impression on me (Sorry, person-who-recommended-it-to-me, we just have different tastes!)
- Who is your favourite protagonist?
I love this question but I also hate it slightly. I’ll name one from the book that I have read most recently– Behind the Scenes at the Museum’s (by Kate Atkinson) Ruby Lennox is my new favourite protagonist.
- Are there any books or series that you’ve been putting off reading (for whatever reason)?
There’s Robert Flannagan’s The Narrow Road To The Deep North which I’m most guilty about putting off. I’ve been avoiding it since November mainly because I’m terrified I won’t like it also because I have too many on my TBR.
- Which fictional character is most like you?
There are many characters that I feel are like me but only in bits, no one is entirely like me. I find many of them relatable, though.
- Have you ever cried after reading a book?
Oh yes! I cried a lot while and after reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Thats book is such a tear-jerker! It was the first to make me cry so I’m mentioning it here.
I’m now supposed to make my own questions and tag people but since I’m very lazy, I’m going to do only the latter.
