And there’s the way she writes, the quick wit, the stereotypical characters that you’ll find in every “Muggle” school as well (every class has a Hermione, a Luna, and an irritating pair of Lavender and Parvati), the adventure, the mystery, the way every piece fits – how all the books are interconnected, it seems as though she thought of all seven books together; it’s one whole story with seven books as seven chapters and Quidditch – who can think of anything more wonderful than Quidditch! Like I said, there are a hundred reasons.

Many people, specially my age(which, by the way, is 17), think that the “vampire craze” started as a result of the Twilight series (that’s what initially got me interested in vampires, true, but that’s just because I was very ignorant when it came to fantasy fiction; a thing I regret). Vampire myths and folklore are, actually, as old as the human civilization itself. Vampire fiction is rooted in the ‘vampire craze’ of the 1720s and 1730s; when the vampires were quite unlike today’s vampires.
You usually start your blog with a “What got me into blogging” kind of an introductory post. In my case, the question should be “who” instead of “what”; and the answer is a rather long and uninteresting story. So, I’ll skip to the part where I write a bit about myself.
Apart from being overly obsessed with cats, I love reading (recently developed an obsession with fantasy fiction), writing, watching just about anything on TV, painting, birding, traveling. It’s usually things that I can do alone. I’m really shy; and honestly, quite terrible at striking up conversations. I just talk to people I know – talk a lot to them, though.
Writing a blog isn’t going to turn me from a reserved, likes-to-keep-to-herself kind of a girl into a social butterfly! But then, here I am; actually writing a blog post about not writing a blog till now – something that would have been out of question just a few weeks back. And this is what this blog going to be for me – a clean slate. Tabula rasa.
