A to Z Bookish Survey

A to Z Bookish Survey

Hi everyone! I was looking for a fun tag to do and after some Google searches, I came across the A to Z Bookish Survey on Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner)’s blog. It looked like a very interesting tag to do so here we are! Let’s get started!


3

The author I’ve read the most books from is Rick Riordan. I’ve read a total of 18 books by him! And I most definitely plan on reading even more books by him in the future!

4

I’m not sure if I can give the title of “best sequel ever” to just one book but if I had to, Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes would definitely be towards the top of my list! This is my favorite book in the Falling Kingdoms series (so far) and I absolutely love it!!

5

I’m currently reading Graceling by Kristin Cashore, which has been on my bookshelf for SO long. I’m currently about 80 pages into the book (at the time I’m scheduling this post) and it’s pretty interesting so far!

D

I don’t really drink anything other than water (except for the occasional Pepsi or iced coffee) so more often than not, I’m just drinking water when reading!

E

I read 100% physical books! I don’t own an ereader and I’ve tried reading ebooks on my sister’s iPad before but I tend to get headaches. Therefore, I just stick to physical books (which I prefer anyway).

F

I’m not sure what to answer for this question. I didn’t actually date anybody when I was in high school so it’s strange to imagine me actually dating anyone – let alone a particular fictional character! But I guess if I had to pick someone, I would go with Paul from Tash Hearts Tolstoy. He’s a really great friend (which is something I look for) and he’s also really kind and supportive.

G

For some reason, I was really hesitant to read Cinder by Marissa Meyer. At the time, I was just getting into the science fiction/fantasy genre and didn’t know if it would be something I’d like. I’m so glad I gave Cinder a chance because The Lunar Chronicles ended up being one of my favorite series!

H

Not a lot of people talk about Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham, which I find strange because it was really good! It features diverse characters and a heartbreaking and intense plot. I absolutely flew through this book and I highly recommend it to everyone!

I

One of the most important moments in my reading life was when I was about 5 years old. I read my first book, Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss, all by myself! I was so proud of myself that I ran around the house telling everyone that I had read my first book!

J

At the time I’m scheduling this post, the most recent book I finished was Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco. The book was enjoyable and I really like the main characters, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book in the series, Stalking Jack the Ripper.

K

I don’t read erotica, horror, or religious books. I also very, very rarely read non-fiction. They’re just not my cup of tea!

L

The longest book I’ve ever read is Harry Potter and the Order the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling which is a whopping 870 pages! Even though this is a huge book, I want to try and read an even longer one (maybe 1,000+ pages)!

M

I’ve had many book hangovers before but one that sticks out to me was the one I had after finishing Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. This book was so, so good that I was not ready to move on to another book!

N

I own a total of 4 bookcases – 2 large, 1 medium, and 1 small. I absolutely love my bookcases!

O

I’ve read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling 3 times so far and I plan on reading it many more times. I just love this series so much – it will never get old!

P

I prefer to read somewhere that’s quiet and comfortable. Usually that’s either on the couch in the living room or in my bed!

Q

I’m always terrible at writing down quotes I like from books so after a bit of online searching, I found one from The Hate U Give that I really love:

“Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.” –Angie Thomas

R

I really regret not reading the Harry Potter series when I was younger. I would have liked to grow up with Harry, Ron, and Hermione!

S

There are many possible answers for this one but I’ve decided to go with The Remnant Chronicles series by Mary E. Pearson. I’ve read the first two books, The Kiss of Deception and The Heart of Betrayal, but I haven’t gotten around to reading the final book, The Beauty of Darkness, yet. At this point I’m going to have to reread the first two books because it’s been so long that I remember next to nothing that happened!

T

It was too much pressure to pick 3 of my all-time favorite books so instead I picked my most recent 5 star reads: A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord!

U

I will never apologize for how much I adore the characters, plot, writing, and worlds in the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab!

V

I am anticipating so many releases but I think my number 1 most anticipated is Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Obsidio is the third and final book in The Illuminae Files series and I can’t wait to see what happens in this book!!

W

My worst bookish habit is probably buying books and then not reading them for a long time. I really need to work on breaking this habit or else my TBR will completely bury me!

X

Some Kind of Happiness is another 5 star book that I read and loved earlier this year! Fun fact: I borrowed this book from the library to read and immediately after finishing, I went on Amazon and bought myself a copy because I loved it that much!

Y

The last book I bought (at the time of scheduling this post) was Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab. I’m looking forward to reading this book once I read the first book in the duology!

Z

Once I got into Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore, I didn’t want to put it down! I stayed up late reading and I was really bummed when I had to stop reading to go to sleep!


As always, I have no idea who I want to tag so if you’d like to do this tag, feel free! If you do decide to do it, leave the link to your post down in the comments below!
