Hello and Welcome to another Book Tag!
Owing to the 4 week lockdown in the UK and things are not improving here in India so we are at home most of the time, hence I thought it’s the perfect time to do the Stuck at Home Book Tag. I hope I am not too late for this tag which I found over at The Perks of Being Noura ages ago. Go check out her responses and thank me later.
The Tag Rules:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Answer all the questions below.
- Ping-back to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx
- Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about to do this tag
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading Bear Town by Fredrik Backman. If you have been a regular at Book & Corner, you would know by that I really love Backman’s works. Having read A Man Called Ove and Anxious People, Bear Town is next in line.
What’s your favorite ‘can’t leave the house’ activity?
I am all about binge-watching. You would find me either at Netflix or Amazon Prime. Recently, I binge-watched Emily in Paris and Gossip Girl.
A book you’ve been meaning to read forever?
There are so many books that I have been meaning to read forever. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel and Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami to name a few.
An intimidating book on your tbr?
White Teeth by Zadie Smith. I pick it up read a few pages and then place it back on the shelf. This has been going on for the past few years.
Top three priority books on your tbr?
- The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi
- The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- The Memory Police by Yōko Ogawa
Recommend a short book?
Dopehri by veteran actor Pankaj Kapur is a short novella. It is one of the best books of the year for me.
Recommend a long book?
I have never really been able to stick to a long book since life has got in the way of reading. The longest I have read this year is Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. It is a great epic, well-researched and highly recommended if you like historical fiction.
Something you’d love to do while stuck at home?
Apart from clicking pictures for Bookstagram, I really like cooking sometime for a change. Though I am pretty bad at it but some videos become my inspiration when I try my hand in the kitchen. Not that I have made great recipes till date but it is safe to say that I can cook noodles in seven different styles. Do you have any stuck at home story?
What do you plan on reading next?
I think I want to pick up a Booker Prize shortlist next. Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart might be the one. Have you read this one?
