Booked!!!

IΒ picked up this book tag from Stef’s lovely blog, Pixie Dust. Here you go:

A book that made you laugh:
One night at the call centre – Chetan Bhagat

Since only one book is to be mentioned, I mentioned the name of the book which made me laugh the most. The second one is Hot Water by PG Wodehouse.

A book that made you cry:
The Notebook – Nicholas Sparks

A book that scared you:
Veronika decides to die – Paulo Coelho

I haven’t read this book yet, though I bought it a long time ago. Somehow, it scares me.

A book that disgusted you:
The stars shine down – Sidney Sheldon

This was the first and last Sheldon I ever read.

A book you loved in elementary school:
Gokulam.

A book you loved in middle/junior high school:

The Secret seven series – Enid Blyton

A book you loved in high school:
The Chicken Soup for the soul series

A book you loved in college:

I used to read a lot of Mills and Boons in my college life, and loved a lot of them. My favouritest was ‘The fraudulent fiancee’ by Muriel Jensen. Other books that deserve a mention here (MBs) are – ‘Bride of my heart’ by Rebecca Winters and ‘All it takes is family’ by Sharon De Vita.

A book that challenged your identity:
Like the flowing river – Paulo Coelho.

Not literally, but it made me think about my life a lot.

A series that you love:
The adventures of the wishing chair series – Enid Blyton

To this day, my heart gives a leap when I see this collection in Landmark.

Your favourite horror book:
I don’t read horror. Never done till date.

Your favourite science fiction book:
Haven’t read science fiction till date. This is one genre I want to experiment in in future.

Your favourite fantasy:

Again, ‘The adventures of the wishing chair’ series. πŸ˜€

Your favourite mystery:
Another genre I have never picked up till date. 😦

Your favourite biography:

I have never read a biography. ‘The memoirs of a geisha’ was the closest thing to a biography that I have read and liked.

Your favourite “coming of age” book:
Like the flowing river – Paulo Coelho

I have taken my favourite ‘coming of age’ book to mean my favourite book after I matured. (Have I still matured or not? – that is a question, but I choose to ignore it as of now πŸ˜€ ) Other books that come close are Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Who will cry when you die? by Robin Sharma and Messiah’s handbook by Richard Bach.

Your favourite classic:

Gitanjali – Tagore

Your favourite romance book:
The bridges of Madison county – Robert James Waller

This tag somehow made me feel I still have a lot to read. I am still a kid in the world of books. πŸ™‚

I now pass on this infection to 3 bibliophiles I know:

Niths

Rambler

Nagashri

Anyone else who finds this interesting can take this up too!

    And I love The Wishing Chair series too. They’re brilliant, but then most of Enid Blyton’s books are.
