Millay’s Questions:

๐ŸŒธWhat has been your proudest moment?

I have many ups and downs in life, but I’m picking one from college. I had a small wish to be a Radio RJ back then. So when one of my teachers asked our class to present a topic in a podcast or radio form, I got the chance to host a small show. It was hardly 5 minutes, but it was satisfying to be the host even for 5 minutes. When I look back to that day, I become so happy, not only for hosting the show but our group did a great job that day. It helped me scratch one thing off my bucket list.

๐ŸŒธWhat has been your lowest point? (If you do not wish to share this, that is perfectly fine.)

When I had to lose my dream in 2014. It was a very difficult time for me because I didn’t know what to do next. I ghosted everyone and changed completely, but then that year, I learned a lot personally. I took that as a lesson and kept myself going.

๐ŸŒธ Thanksgiving isnโ€™t the only day you should be grateful. Name 3 (or more) things that you have been/are thankful for in 2020.

  •  This year wasn’t what I had in my mind when I started 2020. This year feels like being in a nightmare. I had lost 3 of my relatives, and it was hard to digest their deaths. So the first thing I’m grateful for in 2020 would be for being alive and healthy.
  • I’m always grateful to God, EXO, and to all the people who stood by me whenever I was down or doubted myself. So thanks a lot for being there for me!
  • I’m also grateful for this blogging community and my readers. I have so many new books on my TBR because of them, and it’s always great to interact with my fellow bloggers and read their posts.

๐ŸŒธ What character are you from your favorite book/movie?

This is a tough one because I don’t think I can choose one particular character from my favorite book/ movie. After lot of thinking, I guess I would like to be Dobby from Harry Potter. I grew up watching Harry Potter, and I still love reading the series. Till the end, Dobby helped Harry and played a crucial role in the books. Dobby was also a very loyal and sweet character. I share some personality traits with him, so yeah, I would be Dobby. 

๐ŸŒธ Why did you start your blog?

I’m a very private person. I never like to be on social media, and I’m still like that. Until 2016 I was a muggle to every platform on social media. So after college, I had plans to do something for myself- to have a something of my own, created by me, and to rave about books.
I didn’t have plans to start this blog until 2019. Then last year, I thought to myself, “Well, why don’t I start a blog exclusively for books?” and Viola!
I actually tried to blog in March but had to redesign and customize everything from scratch, so I took my time with all the behind-the-scenes work.
So yeah, I started this blog to share my love for reading and writing. I have been a nerd since my childhood, and I didn’t have time to start a blog back then. Now I finally made it happen, and I’m proud of myself for coming so far. This blog is a part of me, and I’m happy to share a part of me with this world.

๐ŸŒธ What has been something youโ€™ve learned from blogging that youโ€™d like to share?

This blogging community has taught me so many things. If I had to share three things from what I have learned here, it would be– 

  • to be consistent
  • be yourself  
  • If you want to start something, do it today. Never wait for a better day!

๐ŸŒธ If you could visit any fictional world, which one would you choose?

This one’s easy- Prythian of ACOTAR. I loved how this world was divided based on seasons, and it’s one alluring world! I would never miss a chance to visit and live in Velaris no matter what. I’m a person who is crazy about stars, and the city of starlight sounds like heaven to me.

๐ŸŒธ What is your favorite holiday tradition?

I don’t have a holiday tradition, but I would say it would be something with binge-watching K-dramas and curling up in my bed with a book and hot coffee.

๐ŸŒธ What is one thing that really gets you fired up or angry?

I guess it’s when people lie to me. I hate it when people lie to me. I want them to be honest, even if it hurts.

๐ŸŒธ What is your biggest pet peeve?

When people don’t listen to or pay attention in a conversation.

๐ŸŒธ What are you most looking forward to in 2021?

I want 2021 to be COVID free, to read more books from the genres that I haven’t read before, to stay positive and write more.

My Questions:

๐ŸŒธ Describe yourself in 7 words.

๐ŸŒธ What is your ideal reading place?

๐ŸŒธ If you could pick three books which you would save during an apocalypse, which would it be?

  2. Oooh congrats on the award Isha! And I 100% agree, Prythian would definitely be a place I would go to – the world building in ACOTAR is so vivid and all the courts sound so scenic in their own ways…๐Ÿ˜†
