Tag Thursday #12 | End of the year Book Tag | ‘The School for Good and Evil’ Book Tag | 5 Hilarious Things about me Tag | Liebster Award #5 | Outstanding Blogger Award #6

Hey Guys! Welcome to another Tag Thursday! It is another long post, so brace yourselves peeps!

End of the Year Book Tag

I was tagged to do this by Jenna @Bookmark Your Thoughts. I was going to do this anyway as I thought it would be the perfect start to the tags of December. Also, do check Jenna’s blog out for cool content and do not forget to give it a follow! Thanks Jenna for tagging me!

  • Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
    I just DNF-ed one book this year- Spoiler Alert and that is the one I might finish, or I might not- let’s see.
Spoiler Alert (Spoiler Alert #1) by Olivia Dade
  • Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
    Not exactly, but I do usually reread Harry Potter at the end of the year.
English Harry Potter Books Collection (J. K. Rowling) - Bloomsbury  Publishing, Rs 399 /piece | ID: 22540916973
  • Is there a new release youโ€™re still waiting for?
    Okay, so when I first read this tag, I was waiting for The Cousins by Karen M. McManus and I still haven’t read it, so I am just going to put this here.
The Cousins by Karen M. McManus
  • What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
    Just three? Well, I need to get my read-a-thon done and I am left with a couple of books there and I need to read Harry Potter. So, yeah, I need to read a lot of books before 31st December 2020.

or maybe 10!
  • Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite of the year?
    Yeah, definitely. The Cousins, like duh. Or maybe even a Christie novel- maybe And Then There Were None. So, in short, yes.

  • Have you already started making reading plans for 2021?
    Did you not see how disorganized my plans for December 2020 are? And you are asking me about 2021?! How rude! I do have a couple of new releases I am waiting for, though.

The School For Good and Evil Book Tag

I was tagged to do this by Virginia @The Sassy Library Fox. She has a really cool blog with a tag- Sassy Saturdays- so do check it out!! This tag was created by Sabrina @Notes from a Paper Plane Nomad.

So, The School for Good and Evil is a book series and I just read the synopsis and it sounds so freaking awesome that I will definitely start it in January 2021!! Also, the tag is spoiler-free so that is another good thing about it!

Let’s begin!

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post!
  • Link to the original tagโ€™s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad!
  • Please credit if using these graphics, these eyeballs didnโ€™t dry out squinting at a screen for nothing ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag whoever, as many or as few as you like!
  • Post these rules and list of prompts in your tag post. If you copy-paste the rules, it should automatically pingback to me so Iโ€™ll see your tag post!

For this I think I will choose The Murder on the Orient Express- the first Agatha Christie I read. I was not expecting to like Agatha Christie. At all.

Well, even thought it is a romance novel- Confessions of a Klutz does point in this direction, so I will pick that.

Confessions Of A Klutz (Confessions Series Book 1) - Kindle edition by  Davies, Abigail. Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

I take Geekerella for this one. I have loads of Cinderella retellings and a lot about geeks- but this book was just awesome!

Geekerella (Once Upon a Con, #1) by Ashley Poston

Well, I will just go with Geekerella again!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I just love it so so so much.

I don’t read many anthologies or collections to be honest, so I don’t have an answer here.

I will go with two book series here- Throne of Glass (Manon and The Thirteen) and Anne of Green Gables (Anne and all her school girl friends).

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery - Penguin Books Australia

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren is a collaboration book that I love!

Maeve from Throne of Glass is such a weird complex person who is also so darn evil!

Well, I can say that Kasie West’s books came to me at just the right time.

(Don’t kill me) All the Bright Places. Seriously, it was so weird!

Books are never stressful for me but I have read so many books with cliffhangers! There is this book called Damaged, there was Gone Girl, there was The Wife Between Us and so many more! Oh and the books of Throne of Glass, especially Queen of Shadows had so many cliffhangers!

5 Hilarious Things About Me Tag

I was tagged to do this by Aaliya @ Aaliya’s nook a looooooooong time ago and then Nehal @Books and Words tagged me, so I finally did this tag. Do check their blogs out as they are amazing!!!

Rules:

  • You just give the link of the person who nominated you and creatorโ€™s link too (Aaliya’s the creator of the tag) (no thanking required)
  • Write the rules
  • Write five fun facts about you, the more hilarious the better.
  • Then you nominate as many people as you like.

I cannot believe that I am going to publicly humiliate myself.

So, here are five fun facts about me:
1. I am a Ted Talk pro. I can literally drone on and on and on about things that I believe are correct. [Usually includes non-serious topics] However, this quality of mine can only be seen by close friends and family and sometimes on my blog.

2. I love inventing new words when I cannot think of the correct word to be used. I also like converting Hindi verbs to English by simply adding -fying to the end. It is quite a simple trick really. For more details, seek help in the comments.

๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž#QuizTime: Who invented what? Tell Community ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž โ€” Meesho



3. I am a bathroom singer. As most of you might know, I love music. What you guys do not know is that I love singing even though I am a terrible singer.

4. Well, since I cannot think of anything hilarious about me, I will just go ahead and tell you a fact about me. A lot of people seem to think that I am tech-savvy as I am able to run my blog smoothly. Well, I am going to clear that misconception right now. I am not a technology person. I can barely run my blog.
People also seem to think that I know routes to places as I can guide them to my friends’ homes. This is not true. I merely know the routes to places I have been at least a few times.

5. When I get to eat something I love, I lick the plate clean.

This is a much more sophisticated version of what I actually do

There! I said it! Are you happy Aaliya and Nehal? I have said some really embarrassing stuff here guys. Don’t judge me okay? Promise you won’t judge me?

  1. Ooh, thanks for tagging me, Riddhi! I’d actually been meaning to do some kind of end of the year wrap-up soon, so this tag is perfect ๐Ÿ˜Š (Yes, that means I might actually do it in a timely manner this time ๐Ÿ˜Ž)
    Also, some of those GIFs were hilarious! When I’m not eating out in public somewhere, I totally clean my plates in a messier version of that GIF, too ๐Ÿ˜‚ And yesss – read And Then There Were None! It’s one of my favorite Agatha Christie books ๐Ÿค—

  4. hahaha, i’m more of a slyther-puff โค i know slytherin and Hufflepuff is kinda an oxymoron, but well, that’s who i am!! also i read the school for good and evil a while back, but it’s so good!! i think there’s 6 books in it!! i should probably re-read it sometime soon!! honestly, it’s more of a middle-grade novel, and not young adult, but it’s still super nice, so you should read it ๐Ÿ™‚
    congratulations on all the awards!!

  5. Thanks for the tag! And lol I’m the same way with converting words to English! I tend to change Arabic nouns and make it a verb by adding -ing at the end of it ๐Ÿ˜‚
