A tad bit late for this one, but well, better late than never!
So #MeetTheBookstagrammer –
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Ankita Bora and I turned 30 this year. I am an economist by degree and an analyst and communications professional, and I love nerding out about communications and marketing strategies.
Where are you from?
This has always been a difficult question for me. I am an Assamese, born in Delhi, then we moved to Bangladesh, then back to Delhi. My high school was from Jakarta, Indonesia. Under graduation from Delhi again, and post graduation from Oxford, UK. Oh! And in between I was London for a month.
I got married two years back and have moved to Calcutta since then.
What are you passionate about other than books?
Dancing. It is my first love. Also, I love to create journals, make scrapbooks out of my travels, try my hand on simple digital illustrations, and blog about my thoughts and opinions.

I used to post my bookish pictures on my personal Instagram account, and one fine day I was scrolling my feed and stumbled across a gorgeous picture of books with the #bookstagram tag, and that was when I decided to start this account. Now here we are!
𝘍𝘢𝘷𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘰𝘧 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦?
Harry Potter for it made me love reading. Scapegoat and Rebecca by Du Maurier for both of these are magnificient.
Crime thrillers. Spy novels. Murder mysteries. Political thrillers.

Coffee shops! I love going to coffee shops to read. Also, my window by my bed.

I am a HUGE mood reader, so essentially, I suck at TBRs for the month, but I like to try.
What kind of shows do you like to binge?
I am obsessed with all things crime – movies, TV shows, books. Also, I do watch romcoms sometimes to lighten up the mood.

I talk a lot, yet sometimes I love to stay quiet.
I love to sip on cold coffee, even when it’s 2 degrees outside.
I love the beach over mountains.
I am a stationery addict.
I am scared of dogs.
I love to take long walks by myself.
I try to stick to Yoga, but I fail, yet I try again.
