A to Z Survey

Surveys are fun! This is something Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner posted on Friday, and since I love surveys and questionnaires, I wanted to share my own!

A to Z Survey

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Sara Shepard, by a landslide! I’ve read all of the Pretty Little Liars books + novellas, and all of The Lying Game series and one of the novellas.

Best sequel ever:

Wow since I can’t choose…toss up between Fire with Fire (Burn for Burn sequel by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian) and The Dream Thieves (sequel to The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater).

Currently reading:

Reboot by Amy Tintera, and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

Drink of choice while reading:

Ooh, depends on when I’m reading. Coffee (Starbucks for a treat) in the morning, Diet Coke any other time.

E-reader or physical book?

I love my Kobo e-reader for its portability, but lately I’ve been buying more physical books because they look so darn nice. It’s a toss up I guess!

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school:

Hmm. Maybe Etienne from Anna and the French Kiss.

Glad you gave this book a chance:

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. I really love this series, and for whatever reason I didn’t think it would be my kind of book so put off reading it for way too long.

Hidden gem book:

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway.

Important moment in your reading life:

Starting this blog back in 2010. I discovered so many books via the blogging world that I may not have otherwise heard about and read. And of course, I’ve met some super awesome people through blogging!

Just finished:

Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith.

Kinds of books you won’t read:

Like Jamie mentioned, I don’t think I’ll ever read any erotica. I also tend to stay away from romance novels.

Longest book you’ve read:

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, at 709 pages.

Major book hangover because of:

Just One Day by Gayle Forman.

Number of bookcases you own:

Only two. One big, one small.

One book you have read multiple times:

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. My ultimate favourite book.

Preferred place to read:

I love reading in bed, but it’s way too easy for me to fall asleep. If I’m planning to read for a while, my favourite spot is curled up on my couch!

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

“He thought, or said, or sang, I did not know that I was so empty, to be so full.”- From The Last Unicorn. Perhaps my favourite quote ever.

Reading regret:

Other than never having enough time in my life to read all the books I want to read, I can’t think of anything.

Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in series):

Holly Black’s Curse Worker series (I don’t know if there are going to be any more books). I just bought the first one!

Three of your all-time favorite books:

The Last Unicorn; The Raven Boys; and J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

Unapologetic fan-girl for:

Anything The Raven Boys-related.

Very excited for this release more than all the others:

Michelle Hodkin’s The Retribution of Mara Dyer! I can’t wait to read this!

Worst bookish habit:

Getting like 15 books out from the library all at once, knowing I won’t have time to read them all before they’re due back!

X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

Winger by Andrew Smith!

Your latest book purchase:

Holly Black’s White Cat.

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

Fire with Fire!! I could not put that book down!

      Thank you for stopping by! Diet Coke is always my drink of choice!

      The PLL books and show are quite different from each other – I hope you like the books! And Burn for Burn, and its sequel Fire with Fire, are amazing!
