Lots of people have been taking part in the A-Z survey created by Jamie of The Perpetual Page-Turner, and I thought I’d give it a go! Sounded like fun 🙂
Author you’ve read the most books from:
By far my most read author is Robert Muchamore! According to Goodreads, I have read 22 of his books. Blimey!
Best Sequel Ever:
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I think I actually liked it more than the first…
The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
I mostly drink fruit juice. Though in the winter there is nothing nicer than curling up with a book and some white hot chocolate!
E-reader or Physical Book?
My kindle is useful when commuting, but I am definitely a physical book gal. There is nothing better!
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I’d love to say Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, but truth be told I was way too shy to have a boyfriend back then!
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Hidden Gem Book:
Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer. The illustrations! ❤
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
When I began working at the library. Before then, I used to reread a lot of the same books again. It taught me to be more adventurous with reading!
Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I do try and read all genres of YA, but when it comes to adult books I’m much more picky. I don’t read many literary fiction, historical or heavy fantasy/scifi.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling (870 pages). This is one of my favourite books of the series as well 😀
Major book hangover because of:
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Number of Bookcases You Own:
One official bookcase. I also have some shelves and keep some under my dressing table!
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Any non-fiction book by Torey Hayden. Her books were my inspiration to originally be a speech and language therapist.
Preferred Place To Read:
On the train; its the only place with minimal distractions! Or else in bed.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“I love you. Remember. They cannot take it.” from Delirium by Lauren Oliver.
Not starting a blog earlier! Or reading more variety as a kid.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
All of them? Off the top of my head, Michael Grant’s Gone series, Ally Condie’s Matched series and Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Only three?! The Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella, Race to the Pole by James Cracknell & Ben Fogle and the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling.
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Rainbow Rowell. Ever since I discovered Attachments I knew her writing was special, and it has just grown and grown and every book is that little bit better!
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan! It sounds AHMAZING and I only have two more weeks to wait!
Worst Bookish Habit:
From a blogging point of view, it would definitely be not writing reviews! Abandoning half-finished books perhaps?
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Before I go to Sleep by SJ Watson.
Your latest book purchase:
Skinny by Donna Cooner.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Faking It by Cora Carmack. I just HAD to finish it. I adore her books so much ❤
Anyone who says ‘blimey’ gets my vote. 22 is a lot of books to read by one author!
I used to work at a library too and it certainly had an impact on me. I even have my Master’s in Library Science, though I haven’t found a library position yet that suits me.
Thanks for sharing! Cheers, Aubrey
I was quite shocked, but then I would rate him as one of my favourites!
I miss the library so much. Just all the customers and the colleague banter. And seeing all the new books of course! Thanks for your comment.
