A-Z Bookish Questions

I found this questionnaire/book tag over at the Boundless Books blog. Head over there if you want to read their answers!

Author You’ve Read the Most From:

Recently, I’ve read a lot of books by Robert Beatty. I was reading his Serafina quartet and found it to be interesting.  I’ve also read a number of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series. 

Best Sequel Ever:

Technically “Divergent” by Veronica Roth has two sequels since it’s a trilogy but I liked all the books in that trilogy.

Currently Reading:

Right now I’m reading Ashfall by Mike Mullin and I’m nearly finished with it. So intense!

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Depends on what’s in the fridge, I suppose. Flavored water or Cranberry/Raspberry juice.

E-Reader or Physical Book:

Right now a physical book. I’d like to give e-readers a go again soon.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:

I don’t know, since I can’t visualize characters well or think about this question much. I do like Harry Potter, though. Or the Weasley twins because they make me laugh.

Glad You Gave This Book a Chance:

I’m not into romance novels, but I read The Viscount and I (the Bridgerton books) and mostly enjoyed it. There’s a couple of points that really bothered me but generally they’re good.

Hidden Gem Book:

Beyond the Point by Claire Gibson. If someone hadn’t posted about it, I probably wouldn’t have known about it. A wonderful book that brought out some real, intense emotions out of me.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life:

When I started to blog about books…granted I don’t write about books all the time, but it’s nice to talk about the books I’ve read and want to read in my own space.

Just Finished:

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn

Kind of Books You Won’t Read:

Erotica, westerns, romance novels (w/ few exceptions)

Longest Book You Read:

Roots by Alex Haley and Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Major Book Hangover:

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. And the Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. I wanted to read more….

Number of Bookcases You Own:

In my house, 3. If you count the books I still have at my mom’s house, then 5ish? 

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Harry Potter, A Great and Terrible Beauty, If I Stay.

Preferred Place to Read:

In bed, on the couch, or in the sunshine outside. I don’t really have a happy place.

Quotes that Inspires You/Gives You All the Feels From a Book You’ve Read:

My favorite is too long to post, so here’s the next best one from the same book:
“What have we got to hold onto, Sam?”
“That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”

Reading Regret:

Chime. I don’t remember the author. I read it because some work people wanted me to read it. I don’t even remember the story but it was painful. I also didn’t like The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Too weird and intense. 

Series You Started and Need to Finish (all books are out in series):

There’s a few because I tend to get bored and move on to other books. But, The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (even though I wasn’t fond of the first book, I’d still like to finish it), the Bridgerton series.

Three of Your All Time Favorite Books:

Of course, this is hard to rate, but here it goes:

  • Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
  • Atonement by Ian McEwan

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

I don’t know…I’ll always read the next Robert Dugoni book (or at least eventually.) I love his Tracy Crosswhite books.

Worst Book Habit:

Check out/buy a bunch of books and only read a couple. Start a series but never finish it.

X Marks the Spot: Start at the Top Lef of Your Shelf and Pick the 27th Book:

Jane Austen: 7 Novels. (so technically 7)

Your Latest Book Purchase:

I’ve had a few. 

ZZZ-Snatcher Book (last book that kept you up Way Late):

I don’t remember since I can’t stay up late anymore. I think when I was in elementary school, one of my books was due the next day and I stayed up to finish it.
