My name is Charvi and I’m just a nineteen year-old bookdragon trying to juggle my university and blogging life. I’m always awkward with introductions and this does count as one so excuse my ramblings, please! I live in Chandigarh, India with my family when I’m not at my university in Sonipat (thanks, pandemic). I am an introverted reading fanatic and you’ll always find my head buried in a book or daydreaming. I literally breathe and live in words. I also scream and sob at my books and fangirl 24/7 so if you would like to do any of the above mentioned you are welcome to join me! Like all booknerds I have a never-ending TBR pile that glares at me every time I sit on my desk and every year I tell myself I’ll make a dent into it. What a joke.
Apart from reading I indulge in art and music and love to go out for a swim now and then. Actually if it were up to me, I would be living on a beach, I love the feeling of soft sand underneath my feet and the bright blue ocean waves. Unfortunately instead of living near a beach I reside in a small suburban area which while being beautiful has an unfortunate lack of water bodies and bookstores. Which is probably why I turn into a 5 year old whenever I visit bookstores and book cafes 🙂
I’ve only recently started hoarding books even though I’ve been reading since I was a kid. My entire childhood was spent in libraries so I didn’t know much abut book buying until recently. I dream to have my own private library and maybe a secret door or two for the aesthetic. I aim to become a therapist and write books on the side, sometime in the future. I’m currently pursuing a major in Psychology with a minor in Creative Writing. It’s been a wild ride but it’s all worth it.
My favorite genres are YA Contemporary and Fantasy but I’ll read almost anything that comes under the category of fiction. I also love reading and promoting diverse books and LGBTQ+ books. I try not to limit myself to a few genres or just outright reject other genres because sometimes individual books and authors can surprise you, going over genre prejudices 🙂 Also, nobody dare ask me for my favourite books because I’ll melt into a puddle of stress.
You can’t really know me without reading my ramblings and bookish screeching on social media so go ahead and find me on:
I hope to see you around !
