About Me

books: line break

Hi there,

I am Aakankshya Shrestha. Welcome to my bookish blog.

Me in a bookstore
Me in a Bookstore. Doped up on the aroma of books.


I am an undergrad student and my part time job is being an escape artist. However, my favorite and only means of escape are books, not ropes or chains.


Reading has always been a part of me as long as I can remember.

How I Wish I could spend ALL my free time

As you can probably already tell, I am an introvert who reads a lot more books than it is considered healthy (for me).

Nowadays, I usually read on my Kindle or my phone. Trust me, I know reading a physical book is much more pleasurable. The smell of the pages, the glossy covers, turning the pages, denting the spine… But they are also quite inconvenient as a student. I can much easily carry a virtual library with me at all times on my phone and kindle.

Here are some fun facts that most people don’t know about me:

  •   I really wanted to study Forensic Science at one point (all influences of Lincoln Rhyme, and Sherlock Holmes)
  • My favorite genre might be fantasy and thriller. Not that I stay away from other genres, but I usually find my way back to those.
  • I have come to realize that I can not resist a crime-fiction/mystery-thriller series books. I read all of Lincoln Rhyme books by Jefferey Deaver like a marathon or a readathon… might have done the same for Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen.
  • I am exceptionally good at finishing books in one sitting and sticking to a series.
  • I am a fangirl at heart.
