A to Z Bookish Survey

I saw this over at Romance Novels for the Beach and thought it looked fun, so here’s mine!

Feel free to comment or fill out your own! I’d love to see how everyone else answers these 🙂

A: Author You’ve Read the Most Books From

J.K. Rowling. Seven Harry Potter books. I was a late bloomer and just recently read all these a couple years ago. Very well-written!

B: Best sequel ever

I’m actually going to say Fifty Shades Darker. I really liked this one better than the first in the series. I know there are a lot of haters for this series. Don’t hate me! 🙂

C: Currently reading

I just started reading Alaina Claiborne by M.K. McClintock. I’m a sucker for historical romances. I’m a few chapters in, and I’m hooked!

D: Drink of choice while reading

Hot chocolate! Nothing beats relaxing with a good book and some hot chocolate.

E: E-reader or physical book

I’m a fan of both. I love my Nook. It’s so convenient, and most of the books I review are only available as e-books. However, I will always prefer physical books. There’s something about the smell and feel of a real book in your hands and the ability to turn real pages. I get a little TOO excited around physical books.

F: Fictional character you probably would’ve dated in high school

Kade Maxwell from Dare to Kiss by S.B. Alexander. No question. Super sexy bad boy with a sweet side.

G: Glad you gave this book a chance

Honestly, the Harry Potter books. My husband had watched all the movies and was begging me to watch them with him. They just never appealed to me. But, I finally gave in, and since one of my rules is to read the book before the movie, I went on a bit of a binge. And I’m happy I did. The books were great!

H: A hidden gem book

Blackheart by Shannon C. Hill. Amazing story with unforgettable characters.

I: Important moment in your reading life

Reading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, which was required for a children’s literature class I took. I had not read in a long time, and it reawakened my love for books and reminded me why I loved reading.

J: Just finished

Aftermath by Sandy Goldsworthy. A bit lengthy but very unique and entertaining.

K: Kinds of books you won’t read

Non-fiction. Just not a fan.

L: Longest book you’ve ever read

Fifty Shades Freed at 579 pages. I’m actually a fan of long books, when they are written well. So, I plan on reading much longer ones.

M: Major book hangover because of

I think having a book hangover means having a hard time leaving the fictional world and coming back to reality. If I’m right, then it’s definitely The Fault in Our Stars. I can’t even. I cried and cried and locked myself in my room for days because of this book.

N: Number of bookcases you own

Sadly, zero right now. When we moved, my bookcase had a fatal accident. My books are in boxes, which is killing me. I am currently looking for the perfect bookcase.

O: One book you’ve read multiple times

August Fog by A.L. Goulden. I am so addicted to this book it’s not even funny.

P: Preferred place to read

In bed. Peace and quiet right before going to sleep.

Q: Quote that inspires you or gives you all the feels

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it” by Toni Morrison. This quote inspires me. I have never been able to find THAT book that speaks to me and is my idea of a perfect story. Then I realized that it’s because I haven’t written it. So one day, I will finish writing my novel and publish it.

R: Reading regret

Giving up on reading for a big chunk of my teenage life. It would have gotten me through tough times.

S: Series that you’ve started and needed to finish

The Tudor Court by Philippa Gregory. I read The Other Boleyn Girl, which I loved, and I didn’t even realize it was part of a series. So, now I need to go back and read the rest.

T: Three of your all time favorite books

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith, and August Fog by A.L. Goulden. SO GOOD.

U: Unapologetic fan girl for

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Yes. I am in my late twenties, and I was among the pre-teens and teens OBSESSED with this book.

V: Very excited for this release

I don’t even know, honestly. I’m so behind on so many books. I’m more focused on those right now. Lol

W: Worst bookish habit

I cut myself off from the world when I get into a good book. My husband has learned to just leave me alone…at least for a day or two.

X: X marks the spot pick the 27 book on your shelf

Since my bookshelf is non-existent right now, I will use the shelf in my Nook. Coming Home: Jackson Falls Book 1 by Laurie Breton. I have not read this book. I think it was one of those ones I got for free and just haven’t got around to reading it. Sounds good though!

Y: Your latest book purchase

I just bought the following books at my local used bookstore yesterday: Bridget Jones’s Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding, The Manny by Holly Peterson, and The Forbidden Queen by Anne O’Brien. I haven’t read any of them, but I’ve always wanted to read the Bridget Jones books and the others sound good!

Z: ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. What an amazing book! I couldn’t put it down.
