The Desert Island Book Tag

Thank you so much Danielle @ If We Shadows Have Offended… for tagging me! Your book-tags are always cool and I really love this one!

1) Water: a book you simply cannot live without

splash water

That’s easy, Harry Po-

Okay, I’ll come up with something different this time πŸ˜›

Um… so I guess that’d be Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw. I have too many memories associated with that book to be able to live without it…


2) Food: a book that is a close second on your favourites list


I devoured them in the exact same way, believe me…

3) Shelter: a book that makes you feel at home and safe


Star of Kazan was my first Eva Ibbotson book. After that, I just came to associate Eva Ibbotson with home and warmth and hope and well-being and anything along that line. But Star of Kazan will always hold a special place in my heart ❀

4) Flare gun: a book that you would recommend to a person who doesn’t read

Previously I would’ve chosen Harry Potter without a second thought. But in the last month itself, I’ve come across seven different people who don’t even want to read it! :/ Sooo, now I’ve changed my answer :


Just One Wish by Janette Rallison is sure to win anyone’s heart! πŸ™‚

5) Fire-matches: book that warms your heart


It’s such a lovely book! ❀

Although now that I think about it, most of Eva Ibbotson’s books will also qualify for this one…

Oh, and there’s one more book that I must mention here :

Ah, Wes… *sa-woon*

6) Compass: book that directed you towards your love for reading


I don’t even remember! Actually, my mother was the one who got me into reading. Right from when I was a little child, she used to tell me bedtime stories and leave them incomplete so that I’d wait to hear the last part the next day (I know, she’s cruel). When I started reading words, she’d leave the book around somewhere close and then tell me that she was busy or something and that I should just try read it myself. And I used to do just that (of course, she’d come help me whenever I got stuck with ‘tough’ words πŸ˜€ ). So by the time I’d finished first grade, I was well into the habit of reading. A slow reader, but definitely an enthusiastic one.

But if I had to choose an answer to this question, I’d probably go for :

or maybe :

I was always somewhat prejudiced against Hardy Boys, though, which is why I never became too fond of them.

I honestly don’t remember what I read before these! There were those Ladybird “read it yourself” books, though…


This was fun! πŸ˜€ And now for sharing the fun, I tag:












P.S. Never mind, Sripurna, I just saw that you posted this today πŸ˜›
