I saw this posted on eatreadexplores’s blog, it was originally posted on The Perpetual Page Turner’s blog. I liked all the comments so decided to try it out myself.
Author you’ve read most books from:
Other than J.K. Rowling and Maria V. Snyder I cannot think of any authors I have read more than four of, not because I do not like them, just either I have not gotten round to them all or they only have one or two out so far.
Best sequel ever:
This is a hard one for me, since it is probably my favourite book ever I will go for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
I quite often read more than one at once so here we go; Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, Songstone by Lena Goldfinch, Crossed by Ally Condie and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
Drink of choice whilst reading:
Don’t really have probably tea or diluting juice.
E-reader or physical book:
I read both, I love the convenience of my kindle, not that I take it places, just that I do not need to limit by book buying (apart from money) and it’s easier to read in bed. But on the other hand, having a real book in your hand cannot be beaten.
Fictional Character you probably would have actually dated in high school:
Em, now I honestly do not know, possibly Neville from Harry Potter (can you see a recurring theme yet?) or Alekskie from City of the sun by Sarah Bryant, he was just so caring and thoughtful.
Glad you gave this book a chance:
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, a friend lent it to me years ago, and it took me a while to get into, he kept telling me not to stop, in the end I loved it, bought the whole series.
Hidden Gem book:
City of the Sun by Sarah Bryant, it really is great and not enough people know about it. Oh and the Healing Wars series by Janice Hardy, it’s too good to miss.
Important moment in your reading life:
I would say it happens every time a truly great book/series that just gets your heart going and cannot put down, (does not happen too often for me).
Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis, I am sorry to say I was glad to be finished it, not really my thing, too slow paced for me.
Kinds of books you won’t read:
Erotica, romance and most sci-fi.
Longest book you’ve read:
The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo 900ish pages.
Major book hangover because of:
This has happened a few times, of course the later Harry Potters and all the Study series by Maria V. Snyder, (studying got put on hold for those books).
Number of bookcases you own:
One, but it has books almost as high next to it and a shelf under my bed at my parents house filled three books high, (okay I need to have a clear out).
One book that you have read multiple times:
The one I have read most is probably Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, ten times and counting.
Preferred place to read:
In my bed or armchair curled up.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feelings from a book you’ve read:
I honestly have no clue on this one. I will instead show one of my favourite quotes
“But this room looked like it had been decorated by the unholy lovechild of Barbie and Strawberry Shortcake.” From Hex Hall By Rachel Hawkins.
Only that I do not have enough time to read every book I would like to.
Series that you started and need to finish (all books are out in the series):
The Matched series by Ally Condie, Flowers in the attic series by Virginia Andrews, that’s all I can think of just now. (there is probably more though).
Three of your all time favourite books:
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, Divergent by Veronica Roth and The House at Riverton by Kate Morton. (I am trying not to mention the same books over and over again).
Unapologetic fangirl for:
The healing wars series by Janice Hardy, I cannot explain how great they are.
Very excited for this release more than all the others:
Allegiant (book 3 in the Divergent series) by Veronica Roth, so excited for this 😀
Worst bookish habit:
Starting too many books at once and not always finishing some of them for years (or ever).
X marks the spot: Start at the top left of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book:
For One More Day by Mitch Albom (forgot I had this book, it was hiding).
Your latest book purchase:
Ruby Blue by Julia Cassar
ZZZ-snatcher (last book that kept you up way late)
The Pain Merchants by Janice Hardy
Let me know what yours are, leave me a link if you have taken this as well.
Until next time, night bookworms.
