Here’s the point: I suck at slangs and abbreviations. A little Google search told me that OTP stands for ‘One True Pairing’.

My favourite OTP is:


Call it cheesy. Call it whatever you want, but I can’t get over the two of them. They are so completely different.. And I love the two of them.

I never had the idea of starting a book blog initially. I joined Goodreads about three years back and reviewing on it two and half years back.

About three months before my twelfth board exams, I decided I had to start a blog and I did. I guess I did that because I wanted something to help me take my mind off the huge looming presence of my final exams – it was purely therapeutic. It drove my mother insane, but I don’t regret it till date. I blogged for an year and a half under the domain: Shameeka Loves Reading before switching to this.



This book is yet to release. I got it from Netgalley and I absolutely loved it!

There are a couple of things I like to do when I’m not reading books:


5. la


I live in this small city called Chennai, in the southern part of India.

I wish I was a good cook, so, I would want to be in MasterChef Australia cooking with Matt Sinclair as I admire his tattoos.

I know that is probably the craziest answer ever. But yeah, I’d like to be Jane. I feel like I can relate to her in many ways, and she is so real, so flawed. That makes her seem more human than ever. Plus I get to bag Mr. Rochester. Bonus!

That’s a really interesting question. It’s a hard one, too. I would tell myself to try to improve on being more positive. One of my biggest drawbacks is that I’m generally a very negative person. Any small thing is enough to set me off to my personal hell of self-loathe. I’m trying hard to snap out of it now, but I believe I would’ve done a better job if I’d started battling it ten years ago.

9. la

I don’t usually watch TV or shows nowadays (though I just started watching GOT with my friend). But back when I was young, I used to be addicted to Wizards Of Waverly Place and Power Rangers. In fact, I still love Power Rangers. My favourite is Power Rangers RPM.

I literally don’t have any knowledge in this area. Any suggestions?

10. la

I would want to be in Germany. All my Quantum Physics heroes are from Germany, so I’d want to be there too.

This one’s easy.
