I found this tag from Jessica’s blog and thought it was an interesting one to do. It was originally created by Jamie at Perpetual Page Turner and I’d like to thank her for creating another awesome book tag! This is also something perfect to fit into doing the A-Z Blog Challenge next month, which I’ll hopefully be able to keep up with for once.
Anyway, onto the book survey!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Kate Brian. The reason being that I read her 14-book series – the Private novels – and then a few of her stand-alone books. Needless to say, I like her as an author.
Best Sequel Ever:
Lola and the Boy Next Door (though it could be read as a stand-alone)
I’m actually in between books at the moment…
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Water, tea, or sometimes coffee (hot or iced).
E-reader or Physical Book?
I’m more of a physical book girl, but I do have a Samsung NOOK and I’ve been trying to buy more ebooks (to save on space and my wallet).
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. His personality is so adorable and he kinda into dorky things, and I usually tend to like guys who nerd out over dorky things.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
The Eye of Minds by James Dashner
Hidden Gem Book:
The Eye of Minds by James Dashner. Seriously, this book (and the two that follow) do not get enough credit. I get frustrated that there’s hardly anyone I can fangirl over these books with!
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Discovering Goodreads. I only wish I’d had something like this when I started reading back in elementary school so I could have a full record of every book I’ve ever read… ever.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I’m not big on fantasy or science fiction, but I’ll read them once in a while if the book is really good (Harry Potter, duh). Genres I will never read are erotica or horror.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
I’d say that’d have to be the longest Harry Potter book, which is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at 870 pages (or along those lines).
Major book hangover because of:
The Mortality Doctrine series by James Dashner. I read all three books one after another and was just distraught after finishing them because of the fact that it’s over, and that there’s no fanfiction or any hype to the books. I could really use a movie for this one guys.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Four. Two are in my bedroom, and two downstairs.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Harry Potter (all seven of them), and Lola and the Boy Next Door
Preferred Place To Read:
Any place with excellent lighting and a comfortable seat. Usually that’s the couch by the window during the day. Otherwise I tend to read on my bed.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” – Albus Dumbledore
Literally, the story of my life.
Not being a consistent reader growing up because there are a ton of books I’ve missed out on and have to pack in my time now. That’s not to say I didn’t read a lot as a kid/teenager, but I went in spurts.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
The Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. I’m halfway through the series, but I’ve kinda gone in a different direction with my TBR list.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Okay, I won’t include the Harry Potter books (this time)
1.) Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
2.) The Game of Lives by James Dashner
3.) The Chance by Karen Kingsbury
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Harry Potter, The Mortality Doctrine trilogy, the Descendants novels
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Lucky In Love by Kasie West
Worst Bookish Habit:
Taking out way more library books than I can actually read before the due date.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Your latest book purchase:
Just preordered this bad boy…
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
As always, I enjoyed doing this book survey and if anyone else does this, I’d love to read them!
