About Me

Hi! I am Bandita and I do not even remember when I started reading. It started when I was a little girl and I’d steal my brother’s English textbook to read Pinocchio. I only know that once I started breathing and reading, I have not stopped since.

I belong to a small town in India but I dream big. My three biggest dreams are to become a published writer someday, to be a Targaryen descendant, and to be a beloved teacher.

I am a wallflower, shy af and people have asked me on many occasions whether I was mute. Truth is… speaking has never been my strongest pursuit. On the outside, I appear as an unemotional woman with a severe RBF. But on the inside, I am a woman unhinged and a hurricane. My mind is constantly swirling with thoughts… so I write. And I chose this blog and my bookstagram account as platforms to let others get a sneak peak into my thoughts, mostly about books, because I am composed of 60% water and 40% books.

I have a penchant for daydreaming, losing myself in a field of wildflowers, stargazing, and writing heart-breaking poems.

Few of my evergreen favorites are Taylor Swift, The Office, Brooklyn Nine Nine, La La Land, How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones, House of The Dragons, sunflowers, Rainer Maria Rilke, Agatha Christie, and the color yellow…

I have read about 700 books and no book can ever usurp To Kill A Mockingbird as my #1 favorite.
