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.
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.
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.”
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.
