Life, oh life | Life in Books tag

Hallo everyone!

I hope this blog post finds you in good health and in a happy mood. I’ve had a amazing day, and I hope your day has been going well too! ^_^

Nick @ The Paper Dragon  tagged me on this book tag a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve finally gotten on to attempting it! It was so much fun!

Here are my answers!



Find a book for each of your initials.

Ah! So much intrusion of privacy! Yikes, the FBI can track me down now! JK! OKAy??

My initials are F. Z. M : my middle name being the name everyone calls me by.

F –> Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Z–> Z for Zachariah by Robert O’ Brian. Its a book on life after a nuclear holocaust. Very interesting!

M–> Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie



Count your age along your bookshelf. Which book is it?

Again at it with the privacy intrusion!! This is a life tag after all! Why did I want to do this??

So I counted my age right now, and the lucky book was The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas! Yay!

BUT, my birthday is in a few days (ahem guess when??) so I’m going to share the next book too because its a favourite !

Its Inkheart by Cornelia Funke ofcourse!!



Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to?

Can I say a few, or maybe twenty books?
I’d love to live in England, even for a few weeks, these ten day holidays are so saddenning to the heart (much cherished tho) but I’d love to get back for a longer time next time (Pls dad!)

If I had to chose a magical land I’d love to visit Narnia



Pick a book that’s your favourite colour?

Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern has a lovely pink and white! (yes I’m that girly girl 😛 )



Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

My copy of Pride and Prejudice that I used for my IGCSE’s. Specifically that copy. It was a time of my life when I was opening up, interacting with others and truly feeling comfortable in my own skin. Also the kids in class were absolute legends (Shout out to you guys where ever you are in the world!!), the joking the laughter, the serious faces we put on to avoid laughing at some inisde joke we got going, the chocolate we ate behind our books, smuggled under the tables.

My teacher was the BEST, a true Queen! I miss her so much now! She’s someone who you’d call a kindred soul 😦 The kind that watched American Idol and spent half the lesson talking about last nights episode. (I hope our headmistress doesn’t read this lol)

I also loved the story so much, and I would work so hard on assignments to get the highest grade (yaasss, I was one of those kids, hate me if you must :P) and if I didnt, I’d work twice as hard next time. I also remember literally juicing the book for my IGCSE’s. Its the most ‘well and truly’ read book in my shelves, other than my Famous Five Treasure Island book (the first book I bought and read a few hundred times over! XD)

Oh well! *sigh!*

I just smile so hard when I see the book and when I’m feeling low, I take it out, and just read the notes I’ve scribbled along its margins.

Well guys now you know why I love this book so much, and cannot talk enough about it!



Which book did you have the most difficult reading?

Crime and Punishment (not finished yet, its been a few months too)

Midnight’s Children! I cannot stress enough what a masterpiece of a book it is!!! Itll take months to well and truly dissect this thing, its got so much going on! Salute to you Mr. Rushdie!


Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?

I’d like to say one of my English textbooks on the rise of the novel or something because then I’d ace an exam ^_^ but I really want to read all of Cassandra Clare’s books so bad! The Infernal Devices etc I love Cassandra, I loved The Mortal Instruments and I cannot wait to compare and contrast the rest.

      1. Hahaha, I would love to come along! 😛 Yes, the movie made it look beautiful – so I would imagine the “real” deal would be amazing as well.

  4. Everyone talks about the Inkeart triology and I haven’t read it yet! I remember reading a couple of pages of it a couple of years back, but I just haven’t been feeling reading it.
    Another book I have to read is Narnia! I know this is like a bookworm sin, but I watched the movies and I feel like that’s enough hahaha.


    1. Inkheart is every readers dream story because the characters in the books come to life!! :O You should read it before you get any older lol tho I do think I’d still enjoy it 😛


      1. Ps. the Narnia movies have been adjusted to fit the age demograph, but in the books they are very young characters. Also you understand so much more about how Narnia came to being, how the White Witch has always been a witch with a B. The last book is so nostalgic, as everything and ‘everyone’ gets together.
