It’s been about a month since I began book blogging, and only a few days since I took it up seriously, updating every now and then and reviewing most books I read. It’s an amazing, amazing experience and the only regret I have is that I did not begin it sooner. However, the one thing I’ve missed is a proper introduction. So, here it goes – (Blogging 101’s Task 1)
I’m Anushka, a 16 year-old student living in India. I began reading at the age of 8 years, and haven’t been able to stay away from books since then. I’m reading all the time, and it’s just something as natural as breathing to me. I can’t think of a life without words and pages and fail to understand people who have an aversion to reading. It’s just how I’ve grown up, I guess.
I read all kinds of books, except for the genres of non-fiction and horror. Horror horrifies me and It by Stephen King was scary enough to push me away from this genre. My most-read genres are contemporary (YA and non-YA), fantasy, paranormal, romance and thriller.
Why did I start blogging? So, to be honest, there are two basic reasons why I created this book blog. One, I already have a life blog which I started about 7 months ago and I didn’t like to insert random bookish posts in that blog. I want that blog to be just what it is – a space for my personal musings and rants – and I feel that bookish posts somehow spoil the look of the blog. So, I decided to create a separate blog for books. Secondly, I wanted to write about the books I read, as reviews or short notes about what I liked or disliked in a book. A blog seemed a perfect platform to do the same so here I am! Apart from that, writing is a new-found passion and writing about books is an exciting, interesting task.
So! That was it for an introduction :) Thank you!
