Hi! I’m Rania (she/her), an Indian teenager who loves reading and talking books. I’m pretty open about my opinions and spend way too much time on the internet. I mean, who doesn’t? Books are my lifeline and I just can’t imagine my life without them. And dogs. Let’s not forget about them. If I’m not burying my head in books, you’ll probably find me watching Netflix or engaging in an impromptu solo dance party in my room.

Some say I’m mature for my age. And tall (everyone says that, actually).

I guess that’s it for now! See you on the other side!

Here are a few random facts about me!

  • I have a knack for mathematical equations.
  • I’m an Aquarius.
  • I have terrible music taste (so don’t come to me for recommendations).
  • I prefer coffee to tea.
  • I’m bilingual; I can read, write, and speak in two languages.
  • I’ve been wearing glasses since the first grade!
  • I have a soft spot for ‘The Greatest Showman’ for no apparent reason.

My Favourite Quotes

“I am the end and the beginning. The world is a painting and I hold the brush. I am a god.”

The Burning God by R. F. Kuang

“[…]I do know every day is getting better. I’m happier with who I am. I can love, in spite of the hate that has defined my past. I can be strong, in spite of the struggles, pain, and tears. I know that I’m worthy. That am I enough. And that’s enough for right now.

Because I’m just getting started.”

Fifteen Hundred Miles from the Sun by Jonny Garza Villa

“We’re so quick to dismiss the sentiment as weak, but hearts beat for love, don’t they? A life without purpose may be no life, but a life without love is nothing but an existence.”

We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

“When you’re given an opportunity to change your life, be ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen. The world doesn’t give things, you take things.”

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“She…hoped. And hope was dangerous. Hope was the most vicious of them all, the thing that had managed to thrive in Pandora’s box among misery, and disease, and sadness–and what could endure alongside others with such teeth if it didn’t have ghastly claws of its own?”

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

“None of us live without consequence. Our personal preferences are not truly personal. One person’s needs will deny another’s. Our privileges can harm ourselves and others.”

The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He
