F.R.I.E.N.D.S book tag (because i’m trash for this show)

hey. how YOU doin’

just had to quote joey. yes yes, i know i hate tv shows and yet i wounded up watching this sitcom in three months? which has like a gazillion episodes? and now i am all but raving about it. but let me take a moment to make this declaration – i am officially trash for this show. when i say i have a lot to talk about it, i am not lying sweetheart. it’s gonna be more than 18 pages, and it’s gonna be front and back! saving all of my ramblings for a later post, let’s dive into this tag which i believe was originally created by the lovely roxanne @ an average life.

do play along in the comments below. i would love to know your answers.


aha! the competitive freak, the clean friend, the best host, and the glue that holds everyone together.

a book based on a game or competition: the answer is going to be pretty cliched guys – hunger games. i am not a huge hunger games fan, i’m more of a divergent fan (and i know you’re not). if you are an avid reader, i am pretty sure that you have heard about this dystopian world with thirteen districts, a reality show, a Capital aka evil government, badass females, and a love triangle (that i despise). okay, that was a bad description. other books like this would be – throne of glass, assassin’s creed, warcross, goblet of fire, etc.

organization queen; how do you organize your books: ooh, time to spill some secrets. i am mEsSy. not really, except i really am. *sighs* but if it makes you feel any better, it’s an organized mess and it’s not dirty. it’s just all over the place. besides, my shelves don’t have enough space to hold all my books like those people over at booktube and instagram. so, there’s no question of organizing. i just have to make them all fit. how do you guys organize your shelves?

the fashionista, the feminist, the one who broke the norms, who went from being a waitress to being offered a job in gucci, and being a wonderful mother. i am proud of you.

a book you read for the hype: from blood and ash. if you are a part of the bookstagram community or an active follower of any book communtiy, you know what i’m talking about. jennifer armentrout was all i heard about and i tried reading dark elements by her and i just couldn’t finish it. but after from blood and ash, it’s all i talk about. i keep looking for cool fantasy romance recs, but eh. i don’t know. other mentions – these violent delights, addie larue, the cruel prince, etc.

shopping addict; what makes you buy a book: anything and everything. literally. if i am happy, if i am sad, if i am angry, if i have money – you get the point. lol.


the dinosaur geek, an amazing brother, the one who loves divorce and is divorced by divorced, confused and in love. i am happy for you.

a science fiction book: the maze runner. this is probably the fastest paced book that i have read till date and let me tell you, that nothing has ever lived up to this speed (except maybe the alex rider series). i was actually really disappointed with the maze runner series. i read the first book in a few hours, that’s how hooked i was. but somewhere in the middle of the second book, it just kept going downhill and by the end of the series, it was completely underground. ugh. other books – northern lights, fireman, mara dyer, etc.

on a break; which books have you put down to pick back up later: actually, i do this to a lot of books. i am huge mood reader and of course i want to avoid not liking a book. if i am not liking it, i keep it down and pick it up later and now i do it so much so that i don’t even remember the last time i did it. but fun fact: i actually dnf-ed the throne of glass series and i didn’t even remember the title of the book. and now it’s my fav series of all time.


Chandler GIFs | Tenor

that awkward overly-sarcastic bestie, the one with feminine traits, the one who had a terrible childhood and yet grew to be a wonderful person. you have my heart.

a book that made you laugh out loud: the hating game. this was actually my first audiobook and the narrator was fabulous. the title is kinda dramatic, because there is no such game and the hating was somewhat forced? but it still is one of my favorite new adult contemporary romance novels. i totally lived for their banters, the slow-burn, the immense build-up, and dude the nick-names were immaculate. a light albeit a little slow-paced but the characters make up for it. trust me. just a disclaimer: i have a weird sense of humor. other books – the bride test, three men in a boat, the mistake, etc.

that time at space mountain; are there any books youโ€™re embarrassed to admit youโ€™ve read: haha, oh sure. but i am definitely not admitting it here, ’cause my mom does read my blog posts on a whim at times. and i am so completely unwilling to face that tornado. what about you?


that loyal friend who puts you before his heart, the one who goes after his passion, the one who hates change, curses only in italian, doesn’t share food. the man-child. you deserved so much better, i am always rooting for you.

a scary book youโ€™d keep in the freezer: exactly my point and exactly the reason i don’t read scary stuff. so, nothing really. i do have a few scary books, but i won’t hide them in the freezer.

v is for encyclopedia; as an adult; have you read any books with words you had to look up to understand: well, i find new words with every book i read. and i do like to look up meanings, so all the books i have read?

that weird badass friend, the one with a horrific sense of dark humor, the overdramatic, sweet, and passionate friend. i would kill to hear you sing smelly cat. you’re weird, too weird, and weird. and i strive to be you.

a book with a spiritual or supernatural theme: the taking of jake livingston. this is actually a new release and i had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the book launch/tour. it’s a horror book with lgbtq+ representation and i absolutely adore how the author shed light on the homophobic nature of our society in such a really easy-flowing language. the best part is that although the book discusses pretty heavy themes, it doesn’t feel that heavy. other books – cemetery boys, twilight (just had to), dark elements, etc.


a book with an OH MY GOD twist: the silence of bones. this is a mystery thriller YA book, and i usually despise thriller books, but this book absolutely stole my breath! it explores so many different aspects of mental health and abuse, and gods!

the plot twist guys! i really really didnโ€™t expect it. when people say plot twists, it gets on my nerves because they are always predictable and just not that grand. but this book – it had me in tears by the end.

The Silence of Bones eBook : Hur, June: Amazon.in: Kindle Store


a british classic: pride and prejudice. the original enemies to lovers. the timeless love story. one of my all times favs. if you’re not very much into classics, i recommend you start with this. it’s not very hard to follow and it’s kinda addictive?

i picked up this book after reading “after” by anna todd, because i so wanted to get the references. i fell in love with this book from the first line itself and i can only hope that you enjoy it too. but you should keep in mind that it was written in 1797, and it might not be overly feministic and women love marriage. so, don’t hate on it because of that.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: book eBook : AUSTEN, JANE: Amazon.in: Kindle Store


a book nobody seems to be talking about: we own the sky. this is a book that was recommended to me by alex @ mybookworld24 and i found it for free in amazon. and the entire concept, the cover, the writing style, the feels – just stunning. this is so underrated. and no one ever talks about it.

we follow sylvia, a 16 year old musician, who can see ‘flickering people’ also known as muses. they are the original greek muses who created music and now that they have woken up, they find a world taken over by technology so advanced that everyone can be an artist. and sylvia is connected to this world of muses and soon she finds her music, her love, and life – all at stake.

an lgbtq+ author and book: hands down it’s alice osman. i am not a very big fan of the heart-stopper graphic novels. in fact i don’t like them at all, but i absolutely love her novels. they are haunting, beautiful, honest, and so so gut-wrenching. my fav being loveless.

romance novel: ooh there are tons. and it’s going to be hard to pick just one, so i’m going to go with the most recent one that i have read – XOXO by axie oh.

this was one of my most anticipated releases of this year and i just finished this last week and it was like this spoonful of marshmallow and sugar.

it wasn’t super great but it was really heartwarming. a solid 3 stars.

ah, finally something other than a blog tour. ha! i know. school stuff keeps me busy and the creative slump certainly doesn’t help, but i did a book tag after a long long while! i hope you enjoyed reading this. and thank you so much for your support!

i would love to see more people do this tag but i only know two people who have watched this – nehal @quirky pages and asic @ haven.

if you have watched this show, we NEED to scream about it in the comments below! let me know. and just a quick question. if you could have anybody’s bookshelf who would it be?

personally, i would love to raid becca and the books, chloe, and jessie mae’s bookshelves. (from booktube) <33

    Oh, and I honestly enjoyed reading your post, but I just got a little overwhelmed by the fact that I didn’t know a Friends tag existed!

It’s not without its faults but I love it. I really can’t separate the seasons in my head ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… I just really liked the show. But I love the one where chandler and Monica start seeing each other. Damn, they are so hilarious and so compatible. โœจโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ Thank you so much ridhdhi!! Omg and pls do do the tag. Would love to know your answers โœจ

  5. YES, SERIOUSLY I WANT THIS FRIEND CIRCLE!! And yeah, that’s Season 5!!!!! YES, EXACTLY, like Chandler is so much more sure of himself when he’s with her!!! Who’s your favourite character? (I am sorry, I love meeting a Friends fan, and bombarding them with questions)

  6. Ahhhhh in that case it’s SEASON 5 SUPREMACY ALL THE WAY hah. Ikr!!!! I mean he was so uncomfortable and immature but he is also incredibly mature and some of his monologues. Damn I could kill for this ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ I think my fav characters are (yes, are. I can’t pick ๐Ÿ˜ญ) Phoebe and chandler. Haha. What about u? And don’t worry. I am totally high on excitement rn ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

  7. YEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! And yeah, his monologues are loveeee! And like, their entire proposal and everything, like how Monica asks Joey to mislead Chandler and everything that happens in those two episodes makes my heart meltttt
    My fav character is definitely Chandler. I guess Monica is next, Ross , Joey and Phoebe tied for the third and Rachel is my least favourite (Unpopular opinion, I know)
    Have you watched The Reunion yet? I got literal goosebumps!
    And have you heard, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer might be dating!!!

  8. Ahahah yess!!! Ikr!!! This might be an unpopular opinion but I despised Richard from the very start. I even removed his questions from this tag ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜… oh yes definitely. And then she went like “there’s a reason girls don’t do this” ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ and then Joey was like “can we come in now??” Damn. #friendship goals!!!

    Chandler just had to be the fav haha. Rachel is not my absolute fav either. So unpopular opinion here too. I think ross is my least fav character. Just couldn’t get myself to like him. I do like him as a person in real life, but his character was just so dicey and his the whole rachel-ross thing in the show was really toxic in my opinion. But it ended well. So I am happy ๐Ÿ˜Œโค๏ธ

    And no!!!! I am still reeling from the show!! Saving up stuff for the future ahh.

    And yess!!! That’s just so incredible!!!!!

  9. Oh, well, I didn’t really dislike Richard, I mean I am neutral about him! And yesssss, that was like so amazing, I literally texted my friends saying I want them to be their for my proposal, lol!

    And yeah, I found Rachel to be stuck up, sorta!
    And yeah, I agree, I actually ship Rachel and Joey. Rachel and Ross are just not… compatible I guess?

    Ah, I see!!!! Well, hope you see it soon! And there’s also a Joey spin-off, but I haven’t watched it, since I have heard it’s not that good.

  10. Ikr! Me too!! I would have loved it if rach and Joey ended up together. My heart just went ๐Ÿ’” for Joey. I mean he deserved so so much better. And omg ahh that’s so sweet!!! I hope you have a great proposal haha ๐Ÿ’œโœจ

    And I think so too. Yeah. They don’t exactly complement each other I think. They have to try too hard to make it work I guess.

    Me too! Oh well, I am still gonna watch it someday maybe hehe. Let’s see.

  11. Yeahhh, I mean like sure Joey has his flaws, but like he shouldn’t have ended up alone! I think he was ready for serious commitment! And I also wish Joey and Phoebe had dated for a while, or maybe even ended together, because they had so much chemistry!!!

    Yeah, exactly…

    Ah, I hope you do!

  12. Yeah, I mean Mike’s good, but so are Joey and Phoebe!! You know Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow actually pitched the idea to show that they were sleeping together all this time, but the producers rejected it! Like Phoebe would have ended with Mike, but they would have technically been together?

    Liked by 1 person

  13. Oooh I didn’t know that. That’s actually pretty cool. But the reason I like this idea is because it was nice to see someone end up with someone outside of the friend circle uk? Like it would have been so fairytale-like if all three Monica, rach, and pheebs ended up with the other three. This just feels more realistic and I like the idea. But nonetheless, it would have been really really cool if they had ended up together.

In the customizer, under the site icon. That’s how I did it. So, it’s not exactly header image but I called it so hehe. I am pretty sure ur theme has a site icon option too.

    And yeah!!! Oh wow that’s so cool!!! I have not yet divided my book into chapters. But I am past the 50k words mark but ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ there’s a long way to go. I would LOVE to read yours too!!!!

  22. Yep! “How you doin’ ?” ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ you’re welcome!! โค๐Ÿค— uh actually i checked last night and my theme DOES support header image but it just comes out too big, i can’t get it to look like an icon ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜•

  24. Ah thank you so much! Haha yes. I know that Jane Austen is a feminist writer and Elizabeth was definitely a feminist. But personally, I felt like the book overall didn’t have a very strong feminist theme to it ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… I mean it was there in comparison to other books, if we take in the time it was written in. But contexualizing it with present time, it kind of fades a bit. But it’s just my personal opinion about the book. I hope you get to silence of bones. It’s lovely โœจ๐Ÿ’œ

  25. True, it’s definitely not the “smash the patriarchy” feminism we see today! ๐Ÿ˜‚ But I love all the themes of forcing others to recognize a woman’s personhood and the necessity of women’s education.

  26. I think the saddest part for me is that we’re STILL having to fight those same fights and make arguments. I think Austen would be pretty ticked off we haven’t come further. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  27. I am half interested to what sort of stories Austen would write for this generation. Because although we have come a long long way, and feminism has uplifted soo much but sexism has reached new heights. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ค Austen would probably turn violent ๐Ÿ˜‚
