A to Z Bookish Survey

I'm posting this over at my book review blog, The Book Barn, but it seemed fun enough to share here in case you aren't a reader of The Book Barn! I totally recommend participating in this fun survey from Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner! Jamie's book review blog is pretty much my new favorite, FYI! :) 

Author you’ve read the most books from: J. K. Rowling thanks to the Harry Potter series!

Best Sequel Ever: I have to go with Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, although Ordinary World by Elisa Lorello is a close second.

Currently Reading: A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin

Drink of Choice While Reading: There's something about coffee + reading!

E-reader or Physical Book?: Why can't I choose both?!

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School: This is the most cliche answer ever, but I'm going to have to go with Peeta from The Hunger Games trilogy. He was nerdy enough with the right amount of heart and wit.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance: Faking It by Elisa Lorello!

Hidden Gem Book: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Important Moment in your Reading Life: Starting a book review blog!

Just Finished: Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read: I never say never, but I'm not big on non-fiction books that don't have a story (I get so bored). Also, not big on paranormal or vampire, but I never say never and definitely have read and enjoyed such books before. I just don't reach for them. 

Longest Book You’ve Read: A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin at 1216 awesome pages.

Major book hangover because of: A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin haha.

Number of Bookcases You Own: I only have 2 because I am trying to keep a handle on things for now, but when I move, watch out!

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Preferred Place To Read: In/on water, whether in the tub or in the pool. A hammock would probably be just as nice!

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: "I would always rather be happy than dignified." -from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Reading Regret: Not starting Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and A Song of Ice and Fire sooner!

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series): I think every series that is completely out that I have started I have finished. I can't start something new without finishing a series. I need to finish what is already published from the Song of Ice and Fire series, but I am almost done!

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books: White Oleander by Janet Fitch, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb.

Unapologetic Fangirl For: The Selection series by Kiera Cass; I hate that I love the series so much, especially after the latest installment, The Elite, but I do love it.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others: Allegiant by Veronica Roth, but also She Has Your Eyes by Elisa Lorello!

Worst Bookish Habit: Not breaking the spines of new books like you're supposed to. I just can't bear to hurt a pretty new book! And yet I'll go in the pool with one, go figure!

X Marks The Spot- Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book: I picked the 27th book on my Kindle since I'm not at home as I type this and, embarrassingly enough it's 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James hahaha!

Your latest book purchase: Love is a Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late): Entwined with You by Sylvia Day
