I snagged this fun survey from Melissa Sarno.
Author You’ve Read the Most Books From:
I’ve read all the Harry Potter books so that’s seven for J.K. Rowling.
Maggie Stiefvater clocks in at five. Soon to be six, as soon as I get my hands on THE DREAM THIEVES.
Best Sequel Ever:
This is a hard one to answer b/c series tend to blur together (I usually read them all in a row), so I’m just gonna say: not sure
CATCH-22 by Joseph Heller
Drink of Choice While Reading:
I pretty much only drink water, so I’ll go with that
E-reader or Physical Book
I generally prefer physical, but I’m not against the ebook
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:
Jonah Griggs (JELLICOE ROAD) mixed with Leland (SECOND CHANCE SUMMER) with a dash of Adam (IF I STAY)
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
IN COLD BLOOD by Truman Capote
Hidden Gem Book:
MOONGLASS by Jessi Kirby
Important Moment In My Reading Life:
This computer chat exchange that took place in 2003 between me and one of my friends (the flea was an inside joke, ignore that line):
HER: brb-must find stationary while it is on my mind
HER: you will NEVER guess what i just found in the bottom of my stationary box
HER: never guess
ME: the flea?
HER: your LIBRARY CARD
So apparently I didn’t use the library for a huge stretch of time and I didn’t even realize I was missing my library card. No idea how it ended up in a box of stationary. Glad to have it back.
THE END GAMES by T. Michael Martin
Kind of Books You Won’t Read:
I’ll read pretty much anything, but I tend to steer clear of ghost stories and books with evil children b/c they freak me out.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
War and Peace. Hands down.
Major Book Hangover Because Of:
Confession: I had to look up what that even was.
I’ll say HP & THE DEATHLY HALLOWS.
I decided I’d just read “a little” before I started work that day (remember I work from home). Then I thought I’d just read until lunch…
When my husband came home from his job, he found me on the couch, sobbing as I read the last chapters.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Two. I swear that’s all.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA by Ernest Hemingway.
Preferred Place To Read:
Quote that Inspires You / Gives You All the Feels From A Book You’ve Read:
I wouldn’t say it inspires me, but in PERSUASION when Wentworth pulls out the line:
You pierce my soul
I go a little weak in the knees.
I can think of a few books I wish I’d never read, but I’ll keep it polite and not mention names
Series You’ve Started and Need To Finish:
The books that come after ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis
Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
See letter “O,” plus…
Two of my childhood faves:
THREE BY THE SEA by Edward and James Marshall
CAPTAIN KITTY by Godfrey Lynn and Elizabeth Webbe
I’m sensing a pattern here that tells me I must have been a sea captain a past life
Unapologetic Fangirl for:
The Babysitters Club. I was even watching the short-lived show on Netflix not too long ago.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
I’m stoked about THE DREAM THIEVES, which just came out
Worst Bookish Habit
Having a shelf full of books, but letting them collect dust as I check things out from the library
X Marks the Spot: Start At the Top And Pick the 27th Book:
I have no idea what this means.
The 27th book I mentioned? Captain Kitty, I think
A book I read when I was 27? No idea. Wait, maybe I do, let me quickly scroll through the e-journal I kept at the time. I mention that: [Hubby] bought me a time travel book- I think he wants my brain to explode.
The 27th book I read this year? Amusingly enough: Miss Pickerell on the Trail by Ellen MacGregor and Dora Pantell
Your Latest Book Purchase:
BROKEN by A.E. Rought
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)
THE 5th WAVE by Rick Yancey
