A to Z Survey

Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner came up with this creative bookish idea!

A-Z survey 

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Meg Cabot (25 books)

Best Sequel Ever:

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Currently Reading:

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Coffee in the morning / Diet Coke in the afternoon / Wine in the evening

E-reader or Physical Book?

Both! I like my Kindle for the convenience, but my hardcovers look pretty on the shelf.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Eli in Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

Hidden Gem Book:

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Taking a Young Adult Literature seminar in graduate school. I already knew I enjoyed reading YA, but this course deepened my appreciation and understanding of it. Plus I got to read tons of great books and call it homework. ;)

Just Finished:

A Really Awesome Mess by Trish Cook and Brendan Halpin

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

I’ll read pretty much anything! I am not a big fan of westerns, but I’ve read one for a Readers’ Advisory class and plan to read at least one more for a genre challenge.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens (974 pages)

Major book hangover because of:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Number of Bookcases You Own:

We have 3: 2 for me and 1 for my husband.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. I’ve read it 3 times now, but I’m sure I’ll read it again many more times!

Preferred Place To Read:

On the couch

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

“I play until my fingertips are raw. Until I rip a nail and bleed on the strings. Until my hands hurt so bad I forget my heart does.” - Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

Reading Regret:

Like Jamie, I also regret not having read Harry Potter when it came out. (But on the plus side, it was great to be able to read all the books in the series with no waiting!)

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):

I’m working on the Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand right now.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

John Green, David Levithan, Meg Cabot

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Worst Bookish Habit:

Reading several books at the same time. I always start new books before I finish the ones I’m currently reading. Right now I have 2 audiobooks and 2 eBooks going.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

The Diviners by Libba Bray

Your latest book purchase:

When I Found You by Catherine Ryan Hyde

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
