About writing, books, authors, reviews & much more....

Book Meme  


This is my first tag for my blog, The Writing Pages.

I have been tagged by Zawan  at Zawan's Blog. 

It is a book meme and I have to answer some questions related to books.

What was the last book you bought?
Ummmmm…..I guess it was from the book fair in our city. Yup, it was Angels and Demons LOL! I know I was pretty late but now my Brown collection is complete!

Name a book you have read MORE than once
Arabian Nights?? I had this craze of reading short stories over and over again when I was 7 or 8 years old

Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
Nopes…..I don't read such kind of books. Actually, I think those kind of books go above my head but I liked My Experiments With Truth- M.K Gandhi

How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews
By recommendations and reviews I suppose. My dad and friends are a great help!

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
I read mostly fiction and like them loads. I like Medical fiction and science- fiction too.

What's more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
Ummm…..both I guess. A good plot isn't understood until it is beautifully expressed.

Most loved/memorable character (character/book)
Harry Potter by J.K Rowling, Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Hercule Poirot by Agatha Christie, Eragon- By Paolini. Even Frank and Joe Hardy- by Franklin W. Dixon.

Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
I don't have that kind of nightstand. Dad asks me to put books back into the shelf after I've read them!

What was the last book you've read, and when was it?
The last book I read was from the school library, Nor M? by Agatha Christie

Have you ever given up on a book half way in?
Yep, Pride and Prejudice….I find classics a bit boring, though I've enjoyed reading many too!

    Hi Meghna.
    thanks for doing this book meme.
    Are you going to read Breaking Dawn?
    I'm not usually into this vampire teen stuff, but I thought maybe it won't be so bad.

    @ Zawan- I'm grateful to you for giving it to me. Breaking dawn ?. I haven't heard about it. Is it one of the twilight stories? If it is good, I'll certainly try and read it :P

  3. Zawan  

    Yes, it's from the Twilight series.
    I'm not sure whether I am going to read it or not. I thought you knew it so as to advise me whether to read it or not.
    Is the Eragon series good?

    I was just wondering, do your other classmates at school have the same interests like you? are they interested in reading classics and the type of stuff that you read?

    also, I read an amazing book yesterday called the Kite Runner.
    It is a must that you read it. I'm telling my father to read it too.
    I also reviewed Love in the time of Cholera, another great book. I don't know if you've heard about it...

    Hahah
    yeah Pride and Prejudice can really be a drag if you try it out. But I survived it! :P

    Also, since you loved Eragon and Harry Potter, try Lord of the Rings. A huge novel, fascinating nonetheless.

    Also, if you like young protagonists, try "To Kill a Mockingbird", it's such a sweet novel!

    @ Zawan- I have heard loads about the Kite Runner and the Twilight series. I am hoping to read them this Christmas vacations, if I can lay hold of them! I'm sorry on that dear....I need to read it!

    Eragon is really really good!!!

    Not all friends and classmates. Some just hate reading LO!L But many do share my passion and we often exchange books! It's loads of fun!

    I haven't heard about the book, but I read your review dear!

    @ Alok- Lucky for you! I'm gonna read lord of the rings triology e-book this winter vacations. Oh! Ive read Harper Lee's book. It's the most sweetest and wonderful book!
