Bookish bits Halo Reads

13 amazing types of readers, which one are you?



Book Group Meeting

Books are the common love of readers across the world. There are various genres of books and so are readers! Some bookworms stick to a particular genre while some book lovers can’t digest the idea of e-books. If you look around, you can see multiple types of readers. So here we are compiling 13 types of readers:

1. Reading a book anywhere:

This type of readers are always seen carrying a book in their bag and they start reading on a platform, bus-stop or even in the crowded train. They don’t bother about place and just start reading whenever they get some spare time. They love when the trains get delayed because they can’t leave climax midway!

2. Lonely reader:

‘Reading at a quiet place’ is the motto of this type of readers. They neglect the crowd and always search for a quiet and lonely place where they embrace the blanket and keep reading because nothing should come between them & their book!

3. The night owl readers:

This type of readers are somehow similar to the previous one. They hate the daylight and love the light of a lamp and bed; they can read a book for the whole night. No wonder, they don’t wake up early! 😛

4. Made for literature only readers:

This type of readers love to read theclassic hardbound books. They always pick up Charles Dicken, Shakespeare, Jane Austen books. They become an angry bird when they see any grammatical errors in the book. They are the biggest haters of Chetan Bhagat and ‘You love me’, ‘I love you too’, ‘why I still love you’ kind of books!! 😀

5. Romantic readers:

Romance is the only genre for this kind of readers. They always fall in the love with the characters, their love story and always dream that their love life should be like the one in the book. They are hardcore fans of Nicholas Sparks!!

6. Hard copy honest readers:

This type of readers are truly dedicated to hard copy books. They hate the idea of E-books & audio books. They love to call themselves ‘old-fashioned’ and say they fall in love with the book merely smelling the pages.

7. Fiction readers:

‘Books should be fiction’; this type of readers live by this motto. They love dreams, fantasies, imagination & fictional characters. They often wonder why people read non-fiction.

8. Non- Fiction Readers:

On the contradictory, there are also readers who love to seek knowledge, facts and information thus read non-fiction. They always go for history, biography or books which will teach them something. They believe that real life is more interesting than fictional life.

9. Partial readers:

They pick up a book with lots of hope and flip few pages but soon get bored and go for another book. In fact, they aren’t even able to read a single book in a year. When you will ask them the reason they will simply say. ‘It was boring’ ‘I didn’t find it interesting’ ‘worthless’. 😛

10. The book lovers:

They are the enthusiastic readers and hardcore book lovers. They have a mini library in their home but always fear to give their books. In simple words, if you borrow any book from them they will dictate end number of rules like ‘don’t fold pages, use bookmark’, ‘don’t read book while eating’, ‘Do not leave any stain on my book’ and the ultimate is ‘my book should look like new.’ 😛

11. Re- Readers:

Yes! There are also readers who have read their favorite book for umpteen number of times. They don’t bother to be updated with any new release and debut authors.

12. Emotional readers:


These readers always sync with the characters of the book and whenever anything happens to the protagonist they can’t hold their tears. They will not talk to anybody and spend their whole week overcoming the grief of their favourite character in the book.

13. Book blabbers:

You don’t have any topic to discuss but these readers always have a topic to discuss and i.e. Books! They can speak for hours about the book they are reading or have read. They don’t even bother if the other person reads books or not. They keep blabbering until everyone slowly disappears from the group. 😛

Agreed bookworms?? Which type of reader are you? We would love to know, please let us know in the comment section below! 😀

    I am usually the night owl one! Although I also read during the day, I think the best time for me to read is night because it offers peace and solace!

    • Sheetal Maurya August 9, 2016 Reply

      Yes, Pooja ! Actually I also love to read at night but I end up sleeping instead 😛

  • Pankaj Gosain August 10, 2016 Reply

    To be frank, I only used to read before examination.

    • Sheetal Maurya August 10, 2016 Reply

Love Sutra by @urvashi_pahwa 
Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Love is a feeling which cannot be expressed in the words. From many years, poets and writers are penning about this. Over the time, the definition of love changed. If we see the present situation then there are very few people who love each other unconditionally.  Living in the modern era when the other things take importance, do we have time to explore and understand love? The author of this book tried to give us some influential love sutra through the various stories. Thank you so much dear author for giving me a chance to read and review your debut work. 😊

#bookreview #thebuddhainthebrothel by Kris Advaya published by #fingerprintpublishing
Rating 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
First of all, I would like to thank the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first thing which attracts the readers is the enchanting book cover, adorned with magenta colour and the palm of Buddha. This book cover can attract even a non-reader. After reading the blurb and genre, I was quite skeptical about this book but to my surprise, it turned out to be one of best non-fiction books of this year. .

  • #octoberwrapup 🍀
I am writing a post after a long time, this month was not good for me. There were so many family emergencies. My fiance was sick and frequently admitted to the hospital. We have lost one of our close relatives. 🙁 Overall, this month was very sad and despite being a month of Diwali it didn’t go well. Only the good news is that I joined my new job and I am very much happy with my work, team, and company. Due to all these, my mind was totally occupied and reading totally got sidelined. I able to complete just 4 books, among them, two were small reads.
Here are the ratings:
⚫ happiness is all we want by @ashutoshmishra8772 - 5 star
⚫ Adventures in farland by @reliaofficial - 4 star ⚫ crooked house by #agathachristie - 5 star ⚫ three thousands stitches by Sudha Murthy - 5 star .
You can read the full wrap up on my blog,  link is in bio. How was your month ? And how many books have you read in this month?💜
