BOOK TAG: A-Z Survey

I was tagged a few weeks ago by Hamad! You should also check out his nice blog, The Book Prescription!

Okay, let’s do this.


A – Author you’ve read the most books from?

Rick Riordan, at 11 books (not counting the handbook books?).

B – Best sequel ever?

It’s so hard to decide!

I’m just going to make it easy on myself and say Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Let’s go with that, otherwise we’d be here all day trying to choose.

C – Currently reading?

City of Ghosts, by Victoria Schwab

D – Drink of choice while reading?

Tea during the winter, and water for the other seasons!

E – E-reader or physical book?

I prefer physical books, but lately it’s been more convenient to use an e-reader.

F – Fictional character you would have dated in high school?

Probably Jacob Portman, because I have a soft spot for guys named Jacob and he is me.

G – Glad you gave this book a chance?

Wow, this Tag is really making me think!

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book I was skeptical about, but I enjoyed Me and Earl and The Dying Girl a lot more than I thought I would.

H – Hidden gem book?

Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, by Matthew Dicks.

I’m choosing this book because most of the books I read are not hidden gems (or hidden at all), and this was one of the few outside of that stigma. Memoirs is not for everyone, but it reminded me a lot of my childhood and was overall an interesting book.

I – Important moment in your reading life?

The first complete chapter book I ever read was the The Name of This Book is Secret, by Pseudonymous Bosch. That was when I realized I wanted to read forever (but I’ve read better books since then!).

J – Just finished?

A Map of Days, by Ransom Riggs

K – Kinds of books I won’t read?

Erotica and Adult Romance. 

L – Longest book you’ve read?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at 870 pages!

M – Major book hangover because of…?

The last time this happened was after reading The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan. I don’t know why, but I was an emotional high schooler and for some reason that book left me speechless for a few days.

Something similar also happened after reading All The Bright Places and More Happy Than Not. I’m probably forgetting a few other times. 

Now that I think about it, all of these were because the endings left me sad and confused…

N – Number of bookcases you own?

3? I lost track. 

O – One book you’ve read multiple times?

I’ve read both The Lightning Thief and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 5 times. (I do read other books, I swear!)

P – Preferred place to read?

In bed or somewhere near a window.

Q – Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you have read?

You know how people cry over Severus Snape’s line, “Always”?

I’m more of a “Lily, take Harry and go!” kind of girl.

R – Reading regret?

I regret not reading more when I was younger, because now there are so many great Middle Grade books I wish I would have discovered back then!

S – Series you started and need to finish?

17675462.jpg

Believe it or not, I was required to read the first book in The Raven Cycle during my senior year of high school and I’ve been trying to continue the series ever since.

T – Three of your all-time favorite books?

Don’t ask me to pick any favorites! I have so many (to the point where I will not read a book unless I think it will be my favorite), but if I had to choose today…

 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, by J.K. Rowling

Challenger Deep, by Neal Schusterman

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak

But honestly, it just depends on my mood 🙂 If you ask me this question next week, I’ll probably say something else.

U – Unapologetic fangirl for…?

Probably for the Peculiar Children Series in general… but if you ever met me in person, I am 75% comprised of Harry Potter love.

V – Very excited for this release, more than all the others?

Well, you should have asked me a few weeks ago! Then it would have been:

W – Worst bookish habit?

Sometimes I don’t like to bring a book with me to places, just because I’m afraid it will get dirty (I know, I’m a nerd).

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

This was a good book 😀

Y – Your latest book purchase?

39088507.jpg

Dear Evan Hansen (the novel), by Val Emmich and others

Z – Zzz snatcher (the last book that kept you up way too late)?

When I read Seraphina a few years ago, it was Spring Break and I had all the time in the world because I was camping in the middle of the woods with no cell-service!
