Bookworm is NOT an insult

Heya humans!!
How are you all today?
I hope you’re all fine!

So today I will talk about Bookworms.

So I googled bookworm and this was the first result I got, bookworm being an INSULT, and I was like hold up, no way, and sometimes my classmates used it as an insult or in hindi as we say “किताबी कीड़ा (Kitabi Keeda)”.

Like yes I am a bookworm, and yes I do read too much, and people still use it as an insult, but I can tell, every single bookworm is proud to be one, and no it’s not an insult, it is a dream come true if someone calls you a bookworm.

So yes we are wretched to you, because we like to consume our time in better things like reading, which is much better than interacting to you simpletons.
We are wretched because we realise that there are much better things than indulging in your silly gossip, we know the world much better than you do, because we live in many different perspectives, we are open minded for we know how things are, and life in books isn’t perfect, it’s far from it.
We learn numerous things from books, even the fantasy and fiction you all call time waste.
We fall, we break and we get hurt numerous times, only to come back stronger, we learn to live, and we live to feel other’s pain, empathize, we learn a part of ourselves we never knew, we live as if we were the character.
All our daydreaming makes us better, we imagine and we believe and our imagination can get us out of many things you would never think off, we may not have social lives like you, and we may be boring to you, but we have way more interesting lives than you could ever imagine.

So in the end, bookworm will never be an insult, we are all wretched worms as you call us, who love to read to escape stupidity, foolishness, the corruption, the real life, but not because we don’t want to run away from it, but because we know how it feels like, we have felt the pain in every character many a times.
We choose to read despite our pain because we know one day things will get better, books are a safe haven.

So yeah bookworm is not an insult, at least it’s not for me, sometimes I think I am more than a bookworm, like I’m a bookdragon, or a bookhorse (I know this one doesn’t make sense, but horses are very fast, and I read a lot so yeah xD )

So which bookanimal are you?
Do you agree with me that bookworm is not an insult?

Thanks for reading!
Stay safe!

Happy International Harry Potter’s Day

Happy International Harry Potter Day!!! | Movies & TV Amino

Hey humans!
Happy Harry Potter Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here’s a poem on HP! (cause I am and will always be obsessed with Harry Potter, always)

The trio of magic
Their childhood might have been tragic
Those three got out with courage
And Hermione's knowledge

They taught me to live
They helped me thrive
They were my childhood
And taught me more than any mere textbook

And if you ask me
About my obsession
AFTER ALL THIS TIME
It'll be there ALWAYS

Here I have comprised a list of all my HP posts!
They have tons of facts about Harry Potter
I hope you like reading them, you can view more of them here and you can find all Potterly Wisdom posts here.

What’s your favorite Harry Potter moment?

Heya nerds!
Random Fandom things is a series I just thought of for fun, basically here I’ll post Random Fandom Things (yeah IK took me 2 seconds to describe and yes I am lazy, moving on).
This first Random Fandom Thing I came up with by including one of my favorite fandom Percy Jackson (technically not PJ but I came to know of it from PJ so uh yeah) and a book series I used to love as a kid and now I find it quite unfortunate (lol, see what I did there xD )

Anyway here we go I get 0 marks for creativity hahah……….

Look away,
Look away, look away
Medusa will wreck your evening , your whole life, and your day
Every single statue is nothing but dismay
So, look away
Look away, look away
Just look away,
Look away—There’s nothing but horror and inconvenience on the way
Ask any stable person, “Should I watch?” and they will say:
Look away.
Look away, look away.
Look away, look away.
Look away, look away.

So what did ya think?
Did you get the series of which the theme song I choose(This sentence is grammatically super incorrect, but once again I am so lazy)?

What series is your favorite?

Happy World Book and Copyright Day

Yeah the title kinda says it all……………..
So happy world and book day people, this is an annual event organized by UNESCO to promote reading, writing, publishing and copyrighting.

In the light of this I just want to say a few things first of all, reading is fun many people dislike it, I got no clue why, and books are life, they let you live 1000 lives instead of one (see what I did there George R. R. Martin quote).

And second, authors work really hard while writing something, and all of us bloggers really work hard on our posts, so please people respect that, and the work people post is copyrighted, don’t copy it, come up with your own, use your own imagination, and it really is important to give credit, please don’t copy it!

And now seeing that it is World Book Day mind checking out my books?🥺🥺 (completely your choice but I HAD to put it there)

If you wanna check out the paperback and you live in India, then you can find it here.

Also if you wanna check out some bookish memes and quotes I reorganized (like a lot) and made a pinterest board which has tons of the memes and bookworm problems, you can find it here.

Yeah that’s it I guess.

How has your day been, which recent book series have you become obsessed with?
Mine has been tiring and I’d have to say Kane Chronicles.

I just remembered I forgot to say hi, so now I am saying hi at the end of the post, I am such an idiot…………

Book Tag- Closing the Chapter

Heya humans today I’ll be doing Closing the Chapter Book Tag, thank you so much Krupali for tagging me, she is a really awesome blogger go check out her blog 😀

Rules

  1. Include the tag image in your post.
  2. Revert the audience to the original creator– Musing of Souls.
  3. Link this post to your tag content, makes it easier for me to read!
  4. Tag as many people you like!
  5. Do not alter the original questions, though, you are allowed to add more questions to it!
  6. Just enjoy!

Chapter 1: Let me Cry

A book you loved so much that you just didn’t wish to finish it, link a song to it if possible!

I loved the Fault in Our Stars, though maybe it might have been to depressing, but you all should definitely read it!

So this has a complete playlist which you can view here

Chapter 2: Little to biggy

A book which includes transition of age (it may have flashbacks from past, just age transformation of some sort.)

Uhhhhhhhhhh, KOTLC has Flashbacks, and Anne Frank has transition of age, oof, IDK? Let’s just skip this one
I remember, The Malory Tower Series and The St Clare Series
*Just realizes that they are series*

Uhh yeah I don’t know, more like don’t remember so let’s just skip this one.

Chapter 3: Just move on

A book which you just wanted to finish as you did not enjoy it.

Set Fire to the Gods, I had to read this for a book club read and to say I did not enjoy it would be an understatement.

Chapter 4: Keep coming back.

A book which you read again and again because you love a character so much.

Well there are so many, if I choose one that would be soooo unfair to my other books so no I can’t choose.

Chapter 5: Piling up

A book which you have not opened but want to(for a long time), can be read or unread

The lord of the rings is in my TBR and I have been trying to read it, but then I find another book, and forget about it, (I even started it, but then exams, so I didn’t read it)

I tag ALL OF YOU!!!

Hope you all have a splendid day ahead!

Never Have I Ever…read a later book in a series before reading the first book

I have the famous five and secret seven series (and a few books of Noddy like reading the 20th before the 13th I think, I don’t actually remember)
I recently read the mysterious benidict society book 4 without reading the rest of the books.

Never Have I Ever…burned a book

I have burned paper, but nope never.

Never Have I Ever…read a book I knew I would hate

Yeah, well I kinda tried to read it.
So you see I picked up The Invisible life of Addie LaRue knowing it YA and I would hate it, but I sorta dnf-ed it, then I read after like a month or so and then finished in 2 hours, I knew I would be disappointed but I just wanted to read it to understand what the craze was about and I was not able to understand it, I was majorly disappointed and hate it.

Never Have I Ever…wrote a fanfiction about my favorite books

I write one every time I read a new book (in my head😂🤪)

Never Have I Ever…loved a book when I was young and hated it when I got older

Not exactly hated but yeah like a 5 star turned to a 2 star (Alice in Wonderland, IDK why but I just don’t like it anymore)

Never Have I Ever…dressed up as one of my favorite literary characters

I have tons of times.

Never Have I Ever…hated a book by an author I love

Nope never hated one.

Never Have I Ever…gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more

Uhhh guilty I have done that tons of times.

Never Have I Ever…read the end of a book before reading the beginning

I usually do that in all Nancy Drew books.

Never Have I Ever…read a book without the dust cover

I have only when it annoys me.

Never Have I Ever…skim read nearly half a book

I have done that ALOT of times.

Never Have I Ever…spoiled a book for someone.

Yeah I have done that tons of times.

Never Have I Ever seen the movie before reading the book

Nope, never done that.

Never Have I Ever lost a book

Uhh does my 3rd grade English Grammar book count then yes I did, but then found it in Grade 5🤪(don’t ask).

My Question: Never Have I ever read two books at one time

Yes I have done that tons of times

I tag
ALL OF YOU SPLENDID HUMANS

So after an year and 2 months I did a book haul!!!!

Excuse my messy table
Look a guitar, I’ma read that one today
I just finished that yesterday
How has your day been today, what are you reading?

Book tags- The Bookish Snob Tag

Hey humans
Today I’ll do the bookish snob tag and thank you Riddhi for tagging me 😀
Do check out her blog (PS she’s close to 500 followers so why not help her get 500 😉 )

ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?

Uhh yeah, I like to first imagine on my own and how the book would look like in my fantasy then if there is a movie and I like the book then I watch the movie or TV show so I get to tell others, “This is wrong and instead of this this happened in the books” (I love doing that, IDK why).

FORMAT SNOBYou can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?

I used to love paperbacks so if you had asked me this like an year ago I would have said paperback but ebooks I guess are more comfortable?
Like IDK how to explain and even though the paperbacks have an awesome feeling you can’t read them inside the blanket plus you enjoy a paperback way more after reading ebooks so it makes it more special, and you don’t get papercuts with ebooks as sometimes some books don’t have great quality of pages but are awesome.
As for audiobooks I have never listened to one and nor do I intend to, so for this one ebook wins (please don’t hate me cause of that, they have become more comfortable to me the past year).

SHIP SNOB: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

Uhh I don’t wanna answer this, personal questions, plus I really don’t know.

GENRE SNOB: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

Romance, or biological books (the ones with facts about humans and cells and plants and that kinda thing)

UBER GENRE SNOB: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

Uhh I can’t choose, I love mystery, poetry, fiction and FANTASY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(and I think I forgot one)
I can’t choose don’t make me, I am begging you

COMMUNITY SNOB: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

Young Adult I guess?

A reader

I am not a witch like Hermione
Or a demigod like Annabeth
I am not an elf like Sophie
Or a tribute like Katniss

I may not go to Hogwarts, 
Or fight the dark lord
I may not be a part of the Great Prophecy
Or defeat the Roman Kings

I may not have a cognate
And be on the chase after the Neverseen
I may not be a tribute
Trying to destroy the Capitol

BUT
I am a reader
A bookworm
A nerd
Books are my life
I live one boring life
Or boring because you say it
Because I live a 1000 interesting lives
You’ll never be part of
I am a demigod, a witch, an elf and a tribute and soo many more things
Because I AM A READER

Hey guys the above image is my very poor attempt at calligraphy🤪😜 Any thoughts on it?
Hope you all are safe!!!
Sorry I haven’t been much active, and I am trying to catch up, but everything is super overwhelming, so, I may be on semi-hiatus for some more time, sorry 😦

Book review- My Ventures & Rove Through Rhyme & Rhythm

Congratulations Aaliya on publishing your first book ever!!!!!!!!!!!

Bitmoji Image


Also this may be my first ARC review ever!!!!!!!!
Yayy!!!

Title- My Ventures & Rove Through Rhyme & Rhythm

Cover

My Ventures & Rove Through Rhyme & Rhythm by [Aaliya  Naqvi]

Description (From Goodreads)

“The magic is within us; the choice is ours we are free. So let’s change our fate and live our own destiny.” – a line from one of my poem.
This book contains attempts I made in poetry, using Disney quotes, archaic words, nature, life etc as inspiration.
Read on to find these new ventures that I made as a first time writer.

My review

“Be the star for which you were born.
Don’t worry everything you will ace”

Wow, just beautiful lines expressed by the poet, similarly the way she tells us that destiny is in our hands and we can control it, this short collection of poetry is inspiring and alluring, coaxing us to venture outside our comfort zones to discover the world and it’s beauty.Emotions speak throughout the poems, the way she travels through her journey of finding, is revenge actually worth, and many more.
This book is a must read!

My rating

5 stars!


Goodreads Website Amazon

Once again congratulations Aaliya!!!!!

You Go Girl
