Interview Questions:

When did you start blogging?
I started this blog at the end of May in 2013. I still remember the frustration I had been feeling lately regarding my job and the only two things keeping me sane had been my love for books and my husband. So one day when he suggested about starting a book blog where I could talk about the books I was reading and interact with like minded book lovers, I just jumped at the idea and instantly revived an old blog which I had made while in college but never used. I started with a review of one of my favorite books, A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and have never looked back since. 

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I love the reviewing part of my job. I just love to share my thoughts about a book that I have read and interact with other people who also love reading. 

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I blog about any book that I am able to finish reading. I am not choosy about the genre but still clear away from poetry and autobiographies. I have come across and read some very interesting books so far and hope to continue exploring. :)

What is your favorite book(s)?
Wow. That's a difficult question. I love all books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie and so it is safe to say that I really like mysteries. I also love books with a good romance and if it has a suspense element in it then it is a plus. Family stories, good fantasy plots, magic settings also appeal to me. There are so many books I like that it is difficult to name a few. :)

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I have met some great people because of blogging and also got introduced to books and genres that I would not have known had I not been blogging. I have finally found a great way to blow steam, enjoy myself, satisfy my bookish and artistic cravings plus meet some very talented people. When people comment, follow me and appreciate my efforts I feel so proud and so thankful that I took my husband's advise. Life is great because of blogging! :)

This week's question is:

Snap it Time! A picture is worth a thousand words. Anything and anything. Just give us a pic.


This is the pic I clicked while I was in Chennai during the time of Pongal Celebrations..Pongal is a harvest festival celebrated each year in South India..I loved the creativity in this arrangement and you wont believe it..This setup was arranged in a mall in Chennai! :) :)


What does your pic say?

Do let me know and follow me via email, GFC, Bloglovin, FBTwitter etc. etc. Also don't forget to leave your link in the comments so that I can follow you back! :)

Happy Weekend! :)
