Summer Fun!

Thursday, August 15, 2013

To get me back into the swing of things, I decided to participate in the A to Z survey that The Perpetual Page-Turner came up with last Friday.  On Saturday, The Bucket List's new reviewer will be posting from the same survey, so you can all learn more about her.  It was really fun.  To participate, link to Jamie's site and comment on the original post, but don't forget to tell them where you saw it first.

Author you’ve read the most books from:

          It’s a tie between LJ Smith, author of The Vampire Diaries series, and Alyson Noel, author of The Immortals series.

Best Sequel Ever:
          Insurgentby Veronica Roth

Currently Reading:
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, and TheSilent Deal by Levi Stack

Drink of Choice While Reading:
          Coffee.  There’s something so special about coffee, a nice chair to sit in, and a good book to relax with any day.

E-reader or Physical Book?
          Physical book, because I’ve done the e-reader scene and it’s just not my thing.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
          EtienneSt. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
          TheFifth Wave by Rick Yancey—sci-fi isn’t one of my favorite genres but I’m glad I read this one!  Check it out!

Hidden Gem Book:
          ThereYou’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones

Important Moment in your Reading Life:
          Reading Hate List by Jennifer Brown: it opened my eyes to see things differently, to see people in a new light.

Just Finished:
           The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
          I try to be open and give every book a chance but I tend not to touch any book from The Fifty Shades of Grey craze; I’ve heard they are over-the-top-ridiculous and I won’t be reading them anytime soon.

Longest Book You’ve Read:
          To my surprise, according to Goodreads, HarryPotter and the Order of the Phoenix is the longest book I’ve read, coming in at 870 pages. 

Major book hangover because of:
          Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

Number of Bookcases You Own:
          6 small ones but there are even more books in piles after that

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
          ThePrincess Bride by William Goldman

Preferred Place To Read:
          Somewhere where no one can find me—usually my bedroom, but it’s not the best hiding place in the world.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
          “As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once." --The Fault in our Stars by John Green

Reading Regret:
          As of right now, it’s not reading Divergent by Veronica Roth when everyone was talking about it.  I read it last summer or sometime like that, when everyone had seemed to move on to some other book and I had no one to talk to about it.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
          There are so many series I need to finish but I had really hoped to finish MaximumRide this summer and didn’t get to it yet.  Two more books to go.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
          BoyToy by Barry Lyga, Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
          Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.  After having just finished Twilight, I walked three miles to borrow New Moon, from my cousin.  She answered the door in her pjs—it was almost midnight.  (A few years later, a movie came out and tore Twilight apart but I’m not sorry for my fangirling it up until the movie’s release date).

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
          Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Worst Bookish Habit:
          I’m very crazy over my books.  The worst habit is keeping a small log in my phone of who is borrowing what book and giving them THE RULES before letting them borrow a book.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
          Read Shelf #1: Going Bovine by Libba Bray
          To-read Shelf #1: Origin by Jessica Khoury

Your latest book purchase:
          Elixir by Hilary Duff

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
          Austenland by Shannon Hale
