The Epic Reads Tag

Ravenclawsam nominated me for the Epic Reads tag. Thanks Sam for the tag as I am always up for these QandA writing prompts 😀 Here are the questions, which I will answer for her. But before that, I would like to state that I am keeping the nominations Open For All. Feel free to answer these set of questions in your blog if you wish to and give me a pingback 🙂


Question 1: If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?

R.K. Narayan would be an author I would love to have tea with. I love his character Swami in Malgudi series.I would serve them Gujarati Farsaan (snacks) and coffee 😉 Om Nom Nom.

Question 2: What book do you wish the author would write the prequel for?

There are so many…such as The Book Thief, which I am currently reading. It will be interesting if the classic books such as Pride and Prejudice also had their prequels written.

Question 3: Which two characters (NOT from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?

Rudy Steiner from The Book Thief and Leslie from Bridge to Terabithia. Feisty and full of life both of them 🙂

Legolas from Lord of The Rings and Fleur from Harry Potter can also be a remarkable couple ❤

Question 4: If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them who is it and what would it be?

Khaled Hosseini is one of my favourite authors and I would just mutter “Please write more frequently for us readers.” 😀

Question 5: What book made you a reader and why?

I would say, my parents made me a reader by reading to me at every opportunity that they got. That too when I was maybe months old only. So, this question does not hold valid for me 😉

Question 6: Your bookshelf just caught fire! What is the one book you would save?

My Harry Potter Box set.

1 set. 7 books. Endless memories to rekindle forever.

I can always buy the rest later. But the box set is my precioussssssssssss 😀

Question 7: Which dystopian world would you want to live in and why?

Lord Of The Rings, under Sauron. It is dark, it is magical. Period.

Question 8: What is your most Epic Read of all time?

Till now, it is A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donelly. I have yet to find a book that can topple this one. The Book Thief + A Thousand Splendid Suns are a close second followed by A Golden Age by Tahmima Anam.

    • Very smart answers 😛 The Kindle is a smart choice…but do you keep your Kindle in the bookshelf 😉

      GRRM is great choice. Damn. Why didn’t I select him. “STOP KILLING MY FAVE CHARACTERS YOU” would be my line to him. If only :P. I suggest you read his recent tweets, if you haven’t already. They are hilarious!

  2. I liked the the sixth question…actually I liked them all..reading them, i feel i have been too naive at my reading skills..

    Leslie from Bridge to Terabithia is still my favorite character and havent seen book thief, though now after your mention, I surely will 😉
