About Me

I am in Year 12 currently and I wrote ‘Joe saves Florida and other adventures’ when I was in Year 3, although I only got it published when I was in Year 9. 

I play the guitar, love singing, and am constantly listening to music. I recently moved to the United Kingdom from India. My favorite colors are crimson and purple. 

 

I am one test away from a provisional black belt in karate and have been skating for eight years. I love autumn and winter, but prefer to stay indoors over going outside. Not to mention I have a passion for reading fictional books and a voracious appetite for them. My favorite genre is mystery. I’m a foodie and I also like cooking. I have two younger siblings whom I often babysit. 

I also really enjoy traveling. I’ve gone to quite a few places and have loved each and every trip along with the experiences and wisdom I have picked up on the way.

My Top 10s

Note- These lists aren't in order by how much I like each. 

My Top 10s

> My Top 10 Books/Book Series:

Agatha Cristie: It is impossible for me to simply pick one on my favorite books of hers because they're all written so well. I'm at the edge of my seat each and every time. However, if I must choose a favorite, it would have to be 'And then there were none', simply because it was the first of her books that I read and it left a lasting impression on me. 

Harry Potter- JK Rowling: A childhood favorite series, it was a core part of my experience growing up.

Chameleon- Fiona Dunbar: Rory and Elsie’s story is heartwarming and I could not let go of any of the books once started until I had finished them. Fiona Dunbar’s writing is humorous and still manages to convey bonds so deeply.

The Four Kingdoms series- Melanie Cellier: Being a huge fairytale fan, this series really was one of my best reads. It really shows the classics while changing aspects and making the stories original. 

 

The Timeless Fairy Tales series- KM Shea: This series is again one of my best reads. Each story shows a different relationship and a different classic, while keeping them all connected. KM Shea’s other books go into the history of the kingdoms or a different perspective to the same stories or just a whole new universe. Her writing is really emotive.

Nancy Drew- Carolyn Keene: Again, this series is quite well known and the writing really goes into Nancy’s adventures and makes us feel like we’re unraveling the mystery right alongside her. The suspense is great and it’s rare that I guess the ending beforehand.

Beauty and the Beast- Jeanne Marie Le Prince de Beaumont: A classic story, it’s one of my favorite fairytales and just had to go onto this list.

Black Beauty- Anna Sewell: Another classic, the emotions evoked by this book were so deep and the story of the horse makes me want to give him a big hug.

 

The Hunchback of Notre Dame- Victor Hugo: The Hunchback of Notre Dame really gives a whole new meaning to the old phrase, 'don’t judge a book by its cover'. It’s sad but at the same time, so adorable.

 

Entwined Tales- Multiple authors: This series follows a family of six siblings and their scientist of a fairy godmother who sucks at his job and makes everything worse. These fairytale retellings are absolutely masterful and the authors are all very talented.

> My Top 10 Books, Book Series, and Authors for Tweens/Kids: 

The Twins series and other books by Katrina Kahler: Katrina Kahler’s books are amazing and I literally loved her books so much when I was younger.

The Magic Faraway Tree and The Five Find Outers series, along with other books by Enid Blyton: These are two of my favourite Enid Blyton series although her other books are also really good. 

The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson: This short series is awesome! The books are short and probably made for kids below 10, but they are must reads...

The Magic Drum and other books by Sudha Murthy: Sudha Murty’s books can be read by all ages and have a lot of moralistic value.

Candyfloss and other books by Jaqueline Wilson: Jaqueline Wilson is one of my favourite authors for books for tweens, her books are funny and suck you into the story.

Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great by Judy Blume: Judy Blume is a lovely author whose books are humorous and perfect for a short, light read.

 

The Geronimo Stilton and Thea Stilton series by Elisabetta Dami: These series are very well known and almost everyone has either read at least one book, or have heard about them. These are small, funny reads.

 

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney: Greg’s life is a source of humour, awkwardness and relatability for every tween...

 

Gangsta Granny and other books by David Williams: Comedian David Williams’ books never fail to make me smile and are books that every kid should read.

 

The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan: This series is just as popular and satisfactory as JK Rowling’s 'Harry Potter' series and if you enjoyed that, you will probably enjoy this too.
