A-Z Bookish Survey
I've seen a couple of people do this A-Z Bookish Survey created by Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-turner. I, too, used to LOVE surveys on MySpace (and Facebook) so I couldn't resist this one:
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Probably LJ Smith as I've read most of her books (25, I think)
Best Sequel Ever:
Clockwork Prince by Cassie Clare
I'm currently re-reading Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews and reading The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Well, Coke Zero as it's pretty much the only thing I drink beside water (or Diet Coke if I get desperate)
E-reader or Physical Book?
Both. I'm greedy.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I would have wanted to date Hunter from the WICCA series by Cate Tiernan. I was besotted with him when I was in high school.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
A lot of books fit this for me! I'm gonna go with I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter as I wasn't sure I'd like it and she is now one of my favourite authors.
Hidden Gem Book:
Gonna cheat slightly and go for the Strange Angels series by Lili St. Crow
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
I reckon starting blogging.
Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews
Kinds of Books You Won't Read:
I've realised that I am rather judgmental when it comes to books. I would probably never read anything shelved in the Women's Fiction section, nor anything in the Horror section.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
I guess it'll be Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix?
Major book hangover because of:
I had a big hangover from Fearsome Dreamer, and from Unspoken
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Haha, none. I know, terrible. I have wall shelves at home and a single, solitary shelf here in London. But I will be remedying this soon!
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Preferred Place To Read:
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“It's a weird smile, but it reaches his eyes and I bottle it. And I put it in my ammo pack that's kept right next to my soul and Justine's spirit and Siobhan's hope and Tara's passions. Because if I'm going to wake up one morning and not be able to get out of bed, I'm going to need everything I've got to fight this disease that could be sleeping inside of me.” -Melina Marchetta, Saving Francesca
Endlessly re-reading during my first 2 years of uni and not really discovering any of the amazing new books that came out until much later.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
Morganville by Rachel Caine
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta, Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Sarah Rees Brennan
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan! Not long left now....
Worst Bookish Habit:
Buying new books when I have loads to read/not actually reading books I take out from the library
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
I can't do this as I have no shelves and very few books here but the 27th book I read this year was The Good, the Bad and the Undead by Kim Harrison
Your latest book purchase:
Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
I have been very good lately and have gone to bed at almost reasonable times...the last time I was up insanely late reading was when I read Divergent, started at 1am and finished at 5am!
