I love doing tags on my blog. Not just answering the tag questions through a post, but I really love reading them on others blogs as well. It is a great way to get to know the bloggers up and close as they reveal personal little details about them. (It didn’t sound as creepy until I typed it out).

But you wouldn’t believe me if you see my posts, because it has been months since I did a tag on my blog. And when Kaleena from Reader Voracious tagged me to play this little game called ‘Two truths and a lie’, I marked a spot for it right then on my blog calendar. (Yes I have one, these days and I am being extremely organized. Please don’t question me).

She even handed out this awesome little guideline, so that even people like me, (the ones who ask ‘what?’ just after you finish explaining something) can follow it easily. I am just going to copy paste it, so that I don’t mess it up. 


  • Create a post with your two bookish truths and one bookish lie – but be sure to keep it a secret so your readers can guess!
  • Reveal the lie in a spoiler at the bottom of your post (you can use this HTML code!)<details><Summary>Reveal the Lie</Summary>Lie Revealed</details>
  • Tag 8 friends to play along.
  • Link back to the original post so I can see all your secrets!

I would love it if you tag me in your post, so that I can see them as well! 

Two truths and a lie

So here I go. Try finding out which is which.

  1. I have gone without reading for years.
  2. hate DNF-ing books and I almost never do that. 
  3. I am an introvert who hides behind books to avoid talking to people.

And the secret is revealed

Reveal the Lie#2 I am not an introvert. I love hanging out with people and being the center of attraction. While I love reading and books, I don’t choose them over people.

Okay, I kinda do that, but not always. Who am I kidding? I would do that any day. All I am saying is I AM NOT AN INTROVERT. Sigh!

Pin me!

  1. Megan | Ginger Mom and Company

    I guessed incorrectly. I thought #1 was the lie. I am a serious introvert! This looks like a fun tag πŸ™‚

    • Gayathri

      Seeing you socializing online, I would not believed if you didn’t say that.

  2. Daniela Ark

    oh this is fun! I think 1 and 3 are true πŸ™‚ 2 is a lie πŸ™‚

    • Gayathri

      You can check the answer in the post by clicking the Reveal the lie link. In fact you should check it!

  3. Shantala

    This was a fun tag. I did not guess the answer correctly. I believed 1 & 3 to be true.

    1 because I have been through a similar phase, so I know readers can take long-ish sabbaticals from reading. And 3 because, I think I just assume most bookish folk on the internet are introverts, lol.

    In my case though, all 3 of those statements would be true. Except the fact that I don’t choose books over close friends and family – I like spending time with them over reading books. πŸ™‚

    • Gayathri

      Yes I assume most people I meet on the internet users are introverts!

  4. Melissa's fandom world

    This is a really great tag article, thanks for sharing!

    • Gayathri

      I am glad you liked it.

  5. Shruti

    I was so sure that 1 was the lie. I just automatically assume that everyone in the Internet is an introvert these days. πŸ˜… Thanks for the tag!

    • Gayathri

      Right? By now you should have realized I am definitely not!

  6. Floryie

    I was sure the lie would be the first one – I have gone without reading for years. for some reason..

    • Gayathri

      I have also done the same. I get it totally.

  7. Fanna

    Oh no! I couldn’t guess that! I thought it’s the first one because I guess, every book lover is kinda an introvert but then, I had to pay a price for giving in to a stereotype, haha πŸ˜€ As for the DNF one, I checked your GR shelves and I couldn’t find a DNF list so I figured that was a truth. Loved doing this! <3

    • Gayathri

      Ah you went snooping around to check the truth!

  8. Stormi

    This is a fun idea! I would have guessed the DNF one!

    • Gayathri

      Wow, I didn’t think you would have.

  9. Sim @ Flipping Through the Pages

    Haha, I guessed it right πŸ˜€ I knew first two were true because I have been following your blog since a long time now, and I know that much about you πŸ˜€
    Hoping to do this tag soon πŸ™‚ Thank you for tagging me.

    • Gayathri

      Sim <3 Thank you for that!

    • Gayathri

      I am glad you liked it!

  10. Kristina

    AW I would’ve had guessed the DNF aswell ! darng it! ahah

    • Gayathri

      We share a lot of common interest, Kristina!

  11. DJ Sakata

    Most bookworms are introverts so you tricked me!

    • Gayathri

      I am definitely not one of them! But I did sound believable right?

  12. Charvi Koul

    Ooh love this tag! It is such a short but interesting one- just what I need when I have such a hectic schedule. Will be doing this one soon, thanks for tagging 😊

    Also whoops I guessed wrong. I thought the DNF one was a lie πŸ˜›
