Hey guys, how you doin’?
I’ve been away for a little while because of college and life, but today I’m back with a tag, the Bookish A-Z Survey. I was tagged by the awesome May and she’s a sweetie so you should go check her blog out. Okay, so let’s not waste anytime, here are my answers:
AUTHOR YOU’VE READ THE MOST BOOKS FROM
J.K. Rowling and Richelle Mead. I’ve read exactly 9 books from both of them.
BEST SEQUEL EVER
Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy #3)
I also thought of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Prisioner of Azkaban, or Goblet of Fire, but I couldn’t decide between them. To be honest I haven’t read many sequels, which is something I’ve been trying to fix.
The Dead Zone by Stephen King
A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
DRINK OF CHOICE WHILE READING
Water, cause I always have a bottle near me. I don’t think I drink anything else while reading.
E-READER OR PHYSICAL BOOKS
I prefer physical books, but ebooks are very convenient, so I read both.
GLAD YOU GAVE THIS BOOK A CHANCE
The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter
I don’t really read adult romance or erotica, but this book has a fantasy element that caught my attention. A bunch of greek immortal warriors opened Pandora’s box and released a bunch of demons in the world (Violence, Death, Disease and so on). As punishment, the gods sealed one of the demons inside each warrior’s body. This book is set in Budapest, and it was what made me fall in love with the city (and inspired me to want to learn Hungarian someday).
HIDDEN GEM BOOK
Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestier
Ok, this was tough because I’m so late with the big releases that I haven’t read many books that I both enjoyed and that people probably haven’t heard of, so I went way back and picked this book I read years ago. It’s about a girl named Reason who’s basically a witch. She and her mother have been on the run from her grandmother her entire life, who Reason’s mom claims to be evil. The thing is, when witches use too much of their magic they go insane, and when that ends up happening with her mom, Reason is sent to live with her grandma in Sidney. I want to reread this one, it was very different from any other book I’d read.
IMPORTANT MOMENT IN YOUR READING LIFE
I’ve said it a million times, but there’s no escape – it was the day I bought my first book with my own money, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The first book of my evergrowing collection.
The Lost Sisters by Holly Black
KINDS OF BOOKS I WON’T READ
Generally I won’t touch non-fiction, horror, erotica, or adult romance books, but I also like to challenge myself now and then. For example, I’m reading my first Stephen King book right now.
LONGEST BOOK YOU’VE READ
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
MAJOR BOOK HANGOVER BEACAUSE OF
Reading many books in a short amount of time.
NUMBER OF BOOKCASES YOU OWN
Two, plus a smaller shelf where I put my TBR of the month.
ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MULTIPLE TIMES
I guess Harry Potter 1 & 2. I don’t usually reread books, but I’d like to change that.
PREFERRED PLACED TO READ
QUOTE THAT INSPIRES YOU/GIVE YOU ALL THE FEELS FROM A BOOK YOU HAVE READ
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at
how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
― J.K. Rowling
Fallen by Lauren Kate
The cover is beautiful, I had the book signed when I met the author, but when I read it later I hated it. Now I can’t ever get rid of it because she was very nice to me and even wrote me a personalized message.
SERIES YOU STARTED AND NEED TO FINISH
Ain’t nobody got time to list them all, but I’ll mention a few that all the books came out, and that I still have the intention to finish.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (believe it or not I’ve never read Mockingjay, even though I saw all the movies)
- Grisha Triology by Leigh Bardugo (only Ruin and Rising left)
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (book #2, #2.5 and #3 left to read)
- Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (read 2 books of 6)
THREE OF YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE BOOKS
- Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
- Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
- They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera
Yes I picked two series, I didn’t want to choose just one book, sue me.
UNAPOLOGETIC FANGIRL FOR
VERY EXCITED FOR THIS RELEASE MORE THAN ALL THE OTHERS
The Wicked King by Holly Black
WORST BOOKISH HABIT
Either buying way more books than I can read or wasting a lot of potential reading time doing non-productive stuff (social media, booktube, Goodreads).
X MARKS THE SPOT: START AT THE TOP LEFT OF YOUR SHELF AND PICK THE 27TH BOOK
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
YOUR LATEST BOOK PURCHASE
I haven’t bought a book since the end of August. I know, I’m baffled too. The last ones I bought back then were two How I Met Your Mother tie-in books – The Bro Code, and The Playbook.
ZZZ-SNATCHER BOOK (LAST BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP WAY TO LATE)
Broken Things by Lauren Oliver
I went to class like a zombie after sleeping for only 1 hour because I couldn’t put it down.
I’m going to tag Solomon to do this tag. I believe he hasn’t done this one yet. 😀
