BOOKWORM INTERVIEW 10: with Vybav Lakshmi (College Student & Blogger)
It's just two days left before Christmas. Are you guys ready for the wonderful festive celebration?
I'm back with another Bookworm Interview episode. For today's episode, I am interviewing a college student and blogger from India. Her name is Vybav Lakshmi and she loves reading novels. Vybav blogs about mental health, self-improvement, and productivity for women. Her blog is very interesting. Now let's not waste time and get started with the interview. We shall begin with Vybav's profile.....
Name: Vybav Lakshmi. V
Vybav is a 20-year-old college student, blogger, and content who lives in Tamilnadu, India. She’s focused on developing her skills and using them to help others. I am that kind of bookworm who read novels during exams and woke up late. I believe that one should improve at least a little bit every day. That belief of mine is the base for my blog, where I help people deal with problems of life and help them improve

When did you first start reading for pleasure?
I was introduced to storybooks by my parents at the age of 5. Ever since they have always been a part of my life. But it was at the age of 12 when I started to become a full-fledged bookworm and started finishing one book in two days.
What is the first book/novel you read?
The first-ever novel I read was a Tamil novel called Ponniyin Selvan. My very first English novel was Immortals of Meluha
What genre do you read?
Mostly fiction, fantasy, and epic fantasy to be precise. I also occasionally read thrillers and fictions based on Indian Mythology
Do you judge a book by it’s cover?
To an extent. While the cover is not everything for a book, it definitely adds certain feels to a book. So yeah, I read online reviews, look at the cover, flip a few pages, and then buy the book.
What is your all-time favorite book/novel and why? Do you repeat reading it?
Harry Potter. This will remain my all-time favorite. Unlike many people I didn’t read it when I was a child, I read it when I was somewhere between 19 and 20. I was going through a hard stage of life and it was this book that boosted my mood and made my life magical. Yes, I repeat reading it. I read it like five times within a year, and I am planning to reread it sometime sooner.
Would you recommend your favorite book/novel to other bookworms?
Definitely. To all the bookworms out there, if you haven’t read Harry Potter yet, I’d definitely recommend it to you. You’ll have a magical journey through the books. The bonus is being part of the fandom. They are just amazing.
Who is your favorite author?
George R.R. Martin. While J.K.Rowling wrote my most favorite book, I personally like the writing style of GRRM. If I start writing fiction books I aspire to write like him.
What ambiance do you prefer for reading? Quite at home? Or somewhere green and serene?
I can literally read anywhere and at anytime. Even if there is a loudspeaker blaring near me, my mind will just block that sound eventually. But I would always love to read somewhere green and serene.
How is the reading culture in your country?
As long as I have observed adults love to read short stories. People also read novels based on history and mythology
Do you have any idea how to improve the reading culture in your country?
While the reading culture is pretty good over here, introducing exciting and fun-filled books to children and young adults may be a good idea to increase the reading habits.
Ok, that's all the questions I have for this bookworm interview. Thank you, Vybav for participating in this interview and sharing with me your knowledge of books, and the reading culture in India. I learned a lot about the reading culture and book industry in India from you. All the best in your blogging career and future.

Really? Then I should check it out too.Delete
I never read The Immortals of Meluha, but after reading the plot I might! Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Thank you to Vybav.Delete

It's always fun to read about fellow bookworms! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I love blogger interviews, it's always so much fun to find out more about bloggers - or in this case, fellow bookworms. I'm very envious she can read anywhere - I can only read in bed before lights out!ReplyDelete
I usually read in bed or sofa too.Delete
I don't usually read through interviews but I'm so glad I read this one. Ponniyin Selvan is an absolute favourite, and so is Amish's Immortals of Meluha. I had so much fun reading this. 😊✨ReplyDelete
Wow......looks like I have to check out those books.Delete
I love blogger interviews, I love learning more about different bloggers xReplyDelete
A agree that sometimes I do judge a book to certain extent as well. It goes to show how much attention the author/publisher is giving to its masterpiece. A good content without a proper cover is just lazy job in my humble opinion.ReplyDelete
Hehehe.....actually what you said is true. I used to work at Karangkraf and I learn that covers plays an important role to market a book. Plus, a cover is a summary to what is inside the book. That's why we do judge a book by its cover.Delete
Never knew about The Immortals of Meluha before this but I will check it out. Who knows I will put as my fav book as well.ReplyDelete
Harry Potter lover here! Haha..never get bored of any of the series 🤩..and I still reading it until now..hahaReplyDelete
Hehehe......i used to be a Potterhead too. But now not anymore. I’m more into classic literature, romance, and spy thriller.Delete
Potterhead here too. But I'm more into books than movies, so I've read all books in the series, but only watched 1 or 2 of the movies. Still wishing I could enroll in Hogwarts.ReplyDelete
Same here. In fact, I always prefer to read a book rather than watching the movie.Delete
Biasa orang will tend to look the cover. Better baca review amd flip some page for its contents..wahh hebat international nerworking. Good job!ReplyDelete
Hehehe, thanx sis ❤️❤️❤️Delete
Great post, this is such an interesting interview and I got a few reading suggestions from this post xReplyDelete

Wow......you wrote a novel before? And now writing children's books? That's incredibly awesome! I’m working on my first novel too. Insya’Allah will publish it in 2021. Pls doakan for me.Delete
Nice interview, Sis belum pernah ada kenal bloggers dari luar negara seperti India, tengok blog dia interesting sungguh.. if Vybav read this.. Sis want to say, 'nice to know you after read this'..ReplyDelete
Sis Lin, I think you should start networking with international bloggers soon. You can learn a lot of things from them abd improve your blog.Delete
Actually bagus jugak bila u selalu berkenalan dgn blogger2 dari luar..sebab selain luas pergaulan, juga luas ilmu yg u dpat..ReplyDelete
I second that and Syukur Alhamdulillah. I did get the chance to networking and learn new things from my international fellow bloggers.Delete
So interesting to know about someone from a different country this way. I love these mini interviews of yours!ReplyDelete
Wow.. interesting interview. I'm also a huge fan of Harry Potter both the novel and movie.ReplyDelete
Always fun to learn about other bloggers and readers! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I always look forward to reading these interviews. I find it so interesting to read other people's experiences with reading. I find it especially fascinating to read the experiences of different cultures and countries and how they perceive books.ReplyDelete
Me too. That's the objective of this interview.Delete
Wow keep this up coz i actually like to read interview stories. Everyone has different preferences and start their reading journey in different ways too.ReplyDelete
Yep, that's the objective of this interview.Delete
i always fascinate those who are bookworms. i try to read one book and it takes forever to finish one whole book. hahahaa. i wonder how bookworms read thick novel and can finish reading it in one day. i just cant. hahahaaDelete
Hehehe......kalo one day, I pun x mampu. I usally take 2/3 weeks. It depends on the book also. Btw, nak pupuk minat membaca ada caranya.Delete
I like your blog it's amazing reallyReplyDelete
