So obviously I've been living under a rock because I just discovered this whole world of book bloggers, including Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner. Ok well she recently did this fun survey all about her favorite books and I wanted to join in!
Here is a terrible, super grainy picture of my bookcases
Author you've read the most books from:
Kate Brian. I feel like her books only half count because they are such easy reads and so short. My second most read author is Tess Gerritsen. She writes the Rizzoli & Isles series, great crime novels!
Best Sequel Ever:
uh Harry Potter? Of course.
City of Glass. I am way behind the times when it comes to Cassandra Clare but her books are amazing! I cant seem to put any of them down!
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Lately its been Mimosas since I don't get the chance to pick up my book until the end of the day.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Physical book. I have a Nook Color that I adore but I mostly just use it when I am traveling and cant bring along 4-5 books. There is really nothing like holding a book, smelling the paper and hearing the page turn.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Patch from the Hush Hush series. Dark and mysterious..a little on the side of crazy, my ideal guy in high school!
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Beautiful Lies by Jessica Warman Wow this book blew me away! I had never heard of the author but randomly picked this up from the library and boy am I glad I did!
Hidden Gem Book:
A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass This book sat on my to read list for years before I finally got around to reading it. Its such a beautiful and interesting story, its now one I read over and over.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Discovering Goodreads <<< Agreeing with Jamie. I fell off the reading wagon a couple years ago for no real good reason. My friend told me about Goodreads and it reintroduced my into the world of reading. I will be forever grateful!
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
History. As informative as they are, they are so dry! I cant make it through the first chapters.
Longest Book You've Read:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 870 pages.
Major book hangover because of:
Most of Sarah Addison Allen's books. Her books are just so magical!
Number of Bookcases You Own:
2 really tall ones. Although the second one is quickly being filled!
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
A Mango-Shaped Space.
Preferred Place To Read:
Bathtub! I take a bath every night, its my favorite place to relax and catch up on reading.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you've read:
"Books may very well be the only true magic." Alice Hoffman
Probably the reading hiatus I took a couple years ago. It seriously put me behind and I really missed out on some wonderful stories (that I now have to catch up on)
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
The Hunger Games. I LOVED the first book, tolerated the second, and couldn't get around to even picking up the third. I even bought it! Eventually I will read it...I hope!
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Gossip Girl. I read these books in high school (and was obsessed). Then the show came out and the obsession continued. I need to reread!
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Allegiant by Veronica Roth I am a newby to dystopia but I read these books back to back and couldn't put either of them down!
Worst Bookish Habit:
Oh boy. Dog earing pages, always returning my books late to the library, starting and not finishing....
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Little Bee by Chris Cleave This is one that I picked up on a whim at Goodwill but haven't gotten around to reading yet! If you've read it, let me know how you liked it!
Your latest book purchase:
The Pretty Little Liars series. Only a couple more to go!
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler This not only kept me up late reading but I cried my eyes out! Such a beautiful story!
