Book Blogger A-Z Survey

Top o’ the afternoon, dear readers!
I saw this post from Trendy Simple Life and it looked like a ton of fun, so here I am!

And if you’re looking for more book talks and reviews, check out my new series “Reading Nook Reviews,” where I discuss a few books I’ve read recently.

My answers are below:

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Hah, Kresley Cole. She’s a paranormal romance writer, and judge me if you will, but her books are downright addictive.

Best Sequel Ever:

Honestly, I’m not sure. All I can think of right now are really bad sequels.

Currently Reading:

The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty. Really liking it so far.

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Depends, usually tea or straight up water. Wine, if it’s been a rough day.

E-reader or Physical Book?

I used to hate on people who used e-readers but now, I’m one of them. I still prefer actual paper books but sometimes I’ll read on kindle if I gotta have a book right away.

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

I can’t say an exact character but he would have been nerdy AF.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

The Last Mrs. Parrish. There was a lot of hype so I wasn’t sure if I should climb aboard but I’m glad I did.

Hidden Gem Book:

Memoirs of a Geisha. It’s a shame that people see the movie but don’t really read the book. It’s such a beautiful story.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

When I was younger, my dad bought me a huge shelf for all my books. I called it my little library and I had that dang shelf until I graduated college. I actually really regret selling it off.

Just Finished:

A New Model by Ashley Graham. Surprisingly good.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Okay, I’m not too picky, but I really hate self-help books on dieting. They’re just trash to me.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

I gave War and Peace a go in high school, kept the book for years, and then finally realized that I didn’t want to actually read it.

Major book hangover because of:

Shadow Wings by Raye Wagner and Kelly Sr. Clare, The final book comes out June 30th.

Number of Bookcases You Own:

Just the one (sobbing now).

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Jane Eyre. At one point, I had three copies of the sucker, including an illustrated version.

Preferred Place To Read:

My armchair. Or rather, Luke’s armchair but I steal it for reading.

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

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.” Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

Reading Regret:

Why oh why did I waste precious time in high school reading the Twilight series? There’s so much better out there.

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

The ‘An Ember in the Ashes’ series! I’m like number 30 in line for the third book at the library, so I’ve got awhile to wait.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah Maas.

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Trashy paranormal romances.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

The Wicked King by Holly Black!! Only have to wait a year for it 🙁

Worst Bookish Habit:

I dog-ear my own personal books sometimes. I’ve been publically shamed for it.

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

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I still haven’t read it.

Your latest book purchase:

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah Maas

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

Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

      Awesome, can’t wait to see it! And no shame on the dog ears 😉

    I’m gonna have to read one of Kresley Cole’s books – I’ve never read a paranormal romance book but I am a fan of the TV genre!

      DO IT. Her books are so good; my favorite one is Wicked Abyss-it’s a take on Beauty and the Beast. Fair warning though, the books are pretty X-rated haha

      Thanks! And I’d only consider it a bad habit if you dog ear other people’s books or a library book. If you own the book, it’s your own personal choice. 🙂
