Have your reading habits changed since you started a blog?
Yes, a lot of it has changed for me, largely because that I grow to appreciate different sorts of things. Last time I didn’t think I will magically in love with the historical fiction genre, now look at me where I’m reviewing plenty of them. And at the beginning, I was still enjoyed the lighter stuff and now, well if it is too light you can find it as a case of ‘just not my taste’.
Do you ever dog-ear your books or write in the margins?
Unfortunately, I dog ear them. It’s a habit that I have sadly made it a part of my reading life, even though I do want out but trying to read with a bookmark… is hard.
What is the worst novel you have ever read?
I think it has to be Tiger’s curse, where I borrowed it during the early days of being a reviewer with a blog and a book. It is one of the worst when it comes to diversity, I mean why does it have to be a white girl saving the Indian culture. I mean, India has a very large population which can supply a saviour with more knowledge than the airhead we got in that book.
What was your favourite subject in school and why?
History. Yes, I love history and all the bloody battles even when the things I mostly studied were about World War II and mostly that. But I did have the chance to study both Hitler and Stalin, if you were to ask me.
What is the best film adaptation you have watched of a novel?
Do you DNF ARCs or try to read them even if you don’t enjoy it?
Yes, I do DNF them once I reach a certain stage and it is simply getting worse. I mean, my pile of did not finish grew greatly after taking on ARCs, since I have way lesser time and a lot less tolerance for lackluster books.
How do you organise your bookshelf? Alphabetically, colour-coordinated, genre?
None, I just don’t organize my shelf. At best it is a mishmash of everything they I have done and taken. Not a good measure and judge, but I learn that organizing stuff… just wasn’t my thing.
As for my questions:
What do you wish that you have learned earlier?
What do you do when you realise that a book just isn’t for you?
How do you decide which topic you are going to write about next?
Do you schedule your posts or just post it when you finish it?
What is your favourite quote?
What is the most fascinating subgenre that you have seen?
When do you abandon a book when it doesn’t meet your expectations?
