Thoughts I Have When I’m Crushing On A Book Character

THOUGHTS YOU HAVE WHEN YOU ARE CRUSHING ON A CHARACTER

Are you even a booknerd if you don’t have a crush on at least 5000 book characters? I think not. It’s an inevitable side-effect of reading books. The books steal your heart and so do certain characters, it’s completely normal, at least in the bookish community. So what better than gushing about what thoughts you have as you develop a crush on that fictional character!

 

THOUGHTS I HAVE WHEN I’M CRUSHING ON A CHARACTER

 

  • You know what? I’m starting to really like this character

 

  • Aww they’re so freaking adorable

 

  • *dreamy sigh*

 

  • Can the author stop describing how beautiful they are? I could drool right now

 

  • OH MY GOD SUCH PERFECTION

 

  • I MUST PROTEC!

 

  • *hugs the book in order to hug the character*

 

  • *daydreams about the character whenever she’s not reading about them*

 

  • BE MINEEEE

 

  • You say that they’re fictional one more time and you won’t live to see the next day

 

  • MY LOVE IS TRUE

 

  • I don’t even know when I fell in love! Was it page 100 or 112? Who knows maybe it was page 55!

 

  • YOU TOUCH A HAIR ON THEIR ARM AUTHOR AND I SHALL COME AT YOU WITH A PITCHFORK

 

  • Why aren’t you real, ughhh

 

  • *starts quoting and talking about the character in real life*

 

  • *obsesses over them to the point her whole family knows about them*

 

  • *finds a person who doesn’t know about the character*

 

  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT CHARACTER?! S/HE IS ONLY THE GREATEST LOVE OF MY LIFE!

 

And that’s that until I move onto another fictional crush, I guess? What about you? Remember posting for this prompt is now open and will remain open till midnight of friday, August 2nd. Happy writing!

Summer Bookcation With My Fictional Friends

You ever think of going on a nice and long summer vacation to just relax and bask in the sun but then you remember that you have zero friends whom you would like to go on a vacation with? Well I’m here to ask, what if you could take your fictional friends on a nice little bookcation with you?

Today on the blog I have my third and sadly last post for Bookending Summer. It has a vague theme of Ocean, Beach, Vacations, Contemporaries (you know…Summer) and aims to bring the book blogging community together and is hosted by two of my friends Clo and Sam.

There’s still time to check it out if you are interested to join in 🙂

It’s the second day of Bookending Summer! The sun is shining brightly, the birds are chirping and my skin has cleared. Okay so the sun may be shining too brightly to the point I am blinded and the birds might just be annoying pigeons but just take my word that it’s a good summer day for me to be writing my second post for Bookending Summer.

Interview With Author Sandhya Menon

Hello everyone!

It’s been a long time since I last held an author interview, I think that was probably the beginning of 2018? So basically it’s been too long and now here I am with an interesting interview with one of my favourite YA authors. If you follow me on any social media site you will know that I am an enormous fan of Sandhya Menon and keep yelling at people to go read her books. I’ve especially been fawning over her latest book, There’s Something About Sweetie which I shall forever treasure and hold close to my heart.

So let’s welcome the queen of desi YA books, Sandhya Menon herself!

Thoughts I Have While Writing Book Reviews

I had a wonderful time reading all your lovely posts for this prompt which I have linked down below 🙂

Can you believe Off Tangent Thoughts has been running since two weeks now?

I still feels so surreal to me, especially the fact that all of you have greeted it with so much of love and enthusiasm. I had a great time reading and laughing at all your different posts and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the day I could put up my second prompt post. And today is the day! Super pumped up for this one 🙂
