Tag Thursday #15 | GIF-y love tag | 2020 Book Tag | The Selena Gomez book tag | The Bookish Blog Tag | Liebster Award #6 and #7 | An announcement|

Hola comrades! Welcome back to another Tag Thursday! This Thursday we will be doing quite a few fun tags. But before that I would like to thank all the people who have done the JSBT tag. I haven’t been able to like and comment on all of your posts, but thank you so much for doing the tag.

And, I should warn you that this is a really long post. Since I am doing so many tags I will tag people for different tags at the end, so you can easily figure out which tag you were tagged for. I will also tag you below the tag, but also at the end.

In short, if you wish to not read the post and just see which post you have been tagged for check the bottom of the post.

Also, how have you all been doing? It seems as if it has been forever since we have just talked, you know?

2020 Book Tag

I was tagged by the wonderful Madeline over at The Bookish Mutant. Do check out her blog and give it a follow!


  • Link back to the original creator, Phoenix @Books With Wings
  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Answer all the questions 
  • Tag at least 4 people
  • At the bottom, talk about some other books you read in 2020! (this isn’t required, just suggested!)

    Please note: Just because this is a book tag about 2020, the books you talk about do not have to have been read by you in 2020.


  • A book you were really excited for
    A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder and it didn’t disappoint me. At all.
A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
  • A book that started out really well
    Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Y’all gotta admit it. I agree that J.K. Rowling as a person isn’t great but as an author, she is fantastic.

  • A book that had an unexpected plot twist
    Gone Girl, for sure. I couldn’t have seen that twist if I was standing 1 cm away with a magnifying glass. Buy Gone Girl Book Online at Low Prices in India | Gone Girl  Reviews & Ratings
  • A book where you felt like nothing happened
    The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Don’t kill me. But, like for the first half of the book, literally nothing happens. I love the idea of the book, but the writing style did not work for me.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
  • A book where two main characters were separated
    Empire of Storms. Rowan and Aelin separate in the Empire of Storms. I won’t say anything else for fear of spoilers.
Empire of Storms eBook by Sarah J. Maas | Rakuten Kobo


  • A book in which the characters made a bad decision
    Literally??? every??? YA??? Fantasy/contemporary??? book???
    But I will go with Levi from Fangirl wherein he says that both the kisses were a mistake.

    Can I say Hermione from Harry Potter? She was overly eager, wasn’t she?

  • A book in which the character’s goals change midway
    I think I might go with Meet me at Midnight as first Sidney and Asher aspire to make each other’s life hell but after that they aspire to make their landlady’s life hell.
Meet Me at Midnight by Jessica Pennington

    None. I intend to read book series which have all of their books released- so well.

  • The heart wants what it wants: A book you regret finishing because you are miss reading it a lot

  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions
  • Notify your 11 nominees

Fajar’s Questions:

  • If you could be a character within a book, which book would you choose?
    Uh, this is difficult. I literally cannot choose.
I Cant Decide GIFs | Tenor
  • How many books have you read so far this year?
    According to my GoodReads it is over 80- but in reality, it must be over 110- I have a handwritten list, as I just started my GoodReads in April. I need to update the list- but the number of books must be over 110.
  • A book that made you cry?
    I feel a lot of sadness when reading, but I rarely ever cry… so well.
  • Favourite season?
    Spring and fall.
  • What was the first ever book you purchased?
    I…. don’t really remember. It must have been an Enid Blyton one for sure.

  • How do you feel about cliffhangers at the end of the book?
    THEY EAT ME ALIVE! But I don’t mind it if the next book is worth it.
  • Hardcover or paperback?
    Ummm…. well, I do enjoy hardcovers as they are sturdier than paperbacks, but then paperbacks are much more cost-effective than hardcovers.
  • Least favourite book?
    Again, I don’t really know. Every book teaches me something new- so I don’t know.
I don't know! - GIF on Imgur
  • What attracts you to a blog?
    I love blogs that are colourful, interactive and have fun blog posts.
    This is a post where I kinda explained what I like and don’t like as a blogger, so you can check it out. 🙂
  • Favourite Christmas movie?
    Christmas isn’t really a major festival in India- but I did watch a Christmas Cinderella story on Netflix and I really enjoyed it!
A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish - Wikipedia

Rebecca’s Questions:

  1. What 3 emojis would you use to describe your current read?
    I am currently reading The Cousins by Karen M. McManus and I am just 10 pages in, so I don’t really have any particular opinion about it.
  2. If you could only eat one item of food for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    Chocolate or cheese.
  3. You are stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take?

    I recently watched Alexa and Katie and it is kinda sweet, so…
  5. If you could read any book for the first time again, which one would you pick?
    All of them.
  6. Do you listen to music while you read, if so what?
    Yes I do. My playlist varies from time to time, but right now I have the entire evermore album on loop.
  7. What is your favourite trope and why?
    I enjoy fake dating and enemies-to-lovers.
  8. Dogs or Cats?
  9. Would you like to face one horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?
    This is one weird question. Ummm… I guess one horse-sized duck as I can take it to the city’s river and let it, you know, go there.
  10. If you could only read books by one author, who would it be and why?
    I can’t choose one, but I can choose two. Kasie West and Karen M. McManus as they write some really awesome stuff!
  11. What book would you love everyone to read?
    The War that Saved My Life.

The announcement

So, I was thinking that maybe I could like interview a few bloggers about my blog or books or just blogging in general or maybe just a mixture of three. Like I will email you a list of questions and you email me back your answers and then the both of us could post it on our blog. It isn’t really final yet… I will only do it if I have a certain number of book bloggers, so please please please let me know if you are interested. I will allot a week or two of posts to your answers somewhere in the first two months of 2021 or I might just do two interviews a week. As you can see and tell, nothing is really final, it all depends on the participation. So, just let me know in the comments if you are interested in anything interactive I do.

That’s all for this post and I hope to see all of you very very soon. I know I haven’t been active lately, but please feel free to chat with me about your lives in general in the comments!
Also, I know I haven’t been tagging as many new people as I used- but well, school is something very evil. Also, people I have tagged- it is okay if you don’t wish to the tag/award!

And, if you found any of the tags interesting, do it!!!!!!!!!! I would love to see your take on the tags!!!!!!!

Let me know your thoughts on the post!! Also, are you in the interactive thing that may or may not take place on my blog? And how are your lives in general? Tell me in the comments!

For Liebster Award, I nominated:

  1. Roshni’s Random Thoughts
  2. Booked Till Midnight
  3. Online Days- A teenage blog
  4. Monogamist Reader
  5. The Bookworm Shelf
  6. Beyond the Read
  7. White Rose Stories

Also, whenever you do the tag, please let me know either by creating a pingback to this very post or by dropping a comment! And I would really appreciate that from the next time you tag me in any tag- let me know in the comments of any of my posts as I sometimes don’t get a pingback. I really don’t want anyone to think that I haven’t done a tag they tagged me in as I usually do respond whenever I am tagged.

  3. Thanks for doing my tag, I loved your answers!
    It’s interesting you didn’t like Addie LaRue, I’ve heard lots of good things about it but I’ve seen two or three people who don’t like it!
    Ha ha okay it’s true that in every YA book a character makes a bad decision…hey I needed something for that one!
    Also, I’m totally interested in your blog interview thing! It sounds so interesting, you can sign me up!

  4. oh, really fun tags! Thanks for tagging me! Also, I am probably not the most interesting person you have following you, but if you need someone for your interview questions, I will happily volunteer. That’s a really great idea you have there!

  5. Wow I am so proud as to how much time you spent doing this tag 👏
    I am currently reading fangirl, only 90 pages in so, hopefully your comment about Levi hasn’t dropped any hints 😂🤩
    Thanks for completing the tag and your answers were interesting, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAY YOU DO NOT CRY over books! 😳 I literally bawl my eyes out over everything.

    Thanks for the nomination btw, I have only just completed the gif tag yesterday, would you still like me to take part in it again! 😄

    1. Yeah,so basically in the post settings, there will be an option of tags. Whenever you add a tag there, it will show as a hashtag in the reader. For example, for this post I added book tags, awards etc.

    Thanks for doing my tags riddhi 😁.
    Loved the angry gif 🤣🤣🤣.
    Loved reading ur answers as always…and yeah! School the evil king 😞

  7. Thanks so much for the tag! 😊 I’m glad you included so many Harry Potter answers because now I won’t have to feel guilty if I also do that 😁 Which is bound to happen with this one 😉
    And nooo – Addie LaRue was so good!! How could you? 😉 But I guess after all the hate I gave Throne of Glass, we’re even now 😂
    And I totally agree on those kisses in Fangirl!
    Also – if you still need people for your interviews, let me know and I’d be happy to help out! Although I do think our followings overlap a lot already, so it might also make a lot of sense to reach out to people who would help new readers discover your blog 😉

  8. I completely agree that The Kissing Booth movie was better than the book. The screenwriters did a great job. And Chocolate and Cheese would definitely be part of my top three if I ever had to pick one food item to for the rest of my life 😄

    The blogger interviews sound like a great idea Riddhi!! I can’t wait to read them ☺️ And thank you for the tags, all of these look amazing!!

    Liked by 1 person

  9. Thank you so much for tagging me, Riddhi! I also almost never cry while reading (besides the heart wrench that was Deadly Hallows) but I do kinda wish I would find more books that could get some emotion out of me. And WOW you did read a lot of books! Congratulations!!
    Also, thanj you for reminding me I need to pick up a Kasie West book asap. I’ve never read one but I have a feeling I would enjoy them.
