Judging books with covers that’s been my fatal flaw for ages!!
I mean people why are graphic designers there?? And why do authors spend so much time on covers and a new one with each edition? Like it or not most people are like me and it’s seriously impossible not to judge a book and most of the times the books are represented beautifully by their covers and sometimes they are not 😒 (I used an emoji!! Mainly cause it’s world emoji day).
Usually whenever I am browsing and requesting books on net galley and adding books to my TBR on goodreads I get attracted by the covers and the titles the description and summary is second (and I usually don’t even read it).
So this has been something I have wanted to talk about for long and I really hope I’m not the only one who does this if you do it too do lemme know in the comments! (Seriously I am obsessed with gorgeous book covers and innovative titles I am lured by them ALL THE TIME).
Hello humans surprisingly I still am alive! I know, shocking isn’t it? Did ya miss me? Well let’s just say life has it’s ups and it’s downs, anyways I had a Random Fandom prepared for days and I even had idea till part 5 but I’ll use those when I am desperate for now I’m writing letters to fictional characters. So I saw Nehal writing letters who was inspired by Akshita, so thank you Nehal and Akshita :D. And just a heads up the writing in italic is just side by side commentary feel free to ignore it.
First of all let’s start with the one and the only the man I hate the most DUMBLEDORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*Drum plays in background*
DISCLAIMER-I DON’T WISH TO HURT ANY GRYFFINDOR OR HUFFLEPUFF, AND I ADMIRE YOU ALL.
Dear Dumbledore, Let’s get straight to the point shall we? I am not a huge fan of you because you are biased towards Gryffindors pretend that Ravenclaws don’t exist and always make the Slytherins look like the villains and and yeah ignore Hufflepuffs too (not a Hufflepuff so I don’t really care but heheh nvm), but I still am writing this letter to you asking you the reason why I didn’t get my letter. Ok I think now I know why you didn’t give me my Hogwarts letter probably cause I insulted you so much, nvm, just wanted to tell you that as much as I hate you, your quotes are somewhat really inspiring you know what forget it (I still am mad at you for not sending my Hogwarts letter you have no clue how much I waited for it. PS, it still isn’t too late, I might even forgive you for not bothering about my house and making Slytherin’s look evil. (Notice the might, I’m gonna lure you then think about it and then trap you and curse you after I get admitted into Hogwarts cause you DO NOT mess with Slytherins (also an update people I took the quiz again I’m a Slytherin yassssssss) ) ). Also I just remembered you’re dead nvm, glad you are not gonna lie McGonagall is a way better headmistress but yeah whatever rest in peace.
*Is thoroughly confused by the number of brackets and spends a minute correcting them. Then crumples the letter and throws it in the dustbin.*
Dear Professor McGonagall since you are a headmistress now so correction heheh I had forgotten that. Headmistress McGonagall, How is your day? I hope it’s been good. How are you coping up with having so many Weasleys in your school? Have Albus and Scorpius gotten into more trouble? Well you know I used to be a pretty good prefect and am used to silencing and disciplining rascals I could help you out (seriously I’m desperate, I would even be happy with staying in Myrtle’s bathroom tolerating her all day if I get to come to Hogwarts). I really would love to know why I didn’t receive my Hogwarts letter, I admire you so much. I even think that you would’ve made an exemplary Ravenclaw (why did you choose Gryffindor I mean come on, Gryffindor is a bit too chivalrous and SERIOUSLY OVERRATED, but let’s not insult your house (the only reason I tolerate it is cause Hermione and of course the Weasley twins I mean come on who doesn’t love them? I’m guessing Death Eaters but that’s beside the point)). Mischief Managed!
System pops the message ‘Your files are too large they will be shared as drive links’ *Clicks on sharing with one person view only*
*The author of this post letter is still thoroughly confused by the brackets.*
And that’s it for today PS today is world chocolate day so don’t forget to have a chocolate 😉 !
I just want some chocolate frogs right now cause it’s magic and chocolate what could be better than that (actually books are click here to read some good reasons so as to why reading is awesome). Click here to read part 1 of the Random Fandom series! 🅡🅐🅝🅓🅞🅜 🅕🅐🅝🅓🅞🅜 🅣🅗🅘🅝🅖🅢 #❶
How long did you wait for your Hogwarts letter when you turned 11? Have you given up your wait?
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?
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.
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……….
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)?
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…………
Link this post to your tag content, makes it easier for me to read!
Tag as many people you like!
Do not alter the original questions, though, you are allowed to add more questions to it!
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)

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

I tag ALL OF YOU SPLENDID HUMANS
So after an year and 2 months I did a book haul!!!!
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 SNOB: You 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?
