Book Blogger A to Z Survey

Book Blogger A to Z Survey

Hi everyone! 
I just saw this post from A Bookish Peach, and it looked so interesting that I decided to tag myself! (That's pretty much the kind of freedom that comes with blogging: you can tag yourself and/or do whatever you want...) 

By the way, this survey was originally created by The Perpetual Page Turner, back in 2013.  Please pay her a visit when you have a chance!

Read below to see all of my answers :-)

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Hmmm...I'm pretty sure that's Anne Rice.  I will never forget the first time I read An Interview with a Vampire! I was obssessed by her books (and while on vacation in New Orleans many years ago, I ditched all my friends and went to one of her book signings).  

Best Sequel Ever:

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (from The Hunger Games Trilogy)

Currently Reading:

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Usually coffee but sometimes a glass of wine is required 

E-reader or Physical Book?

Physical books. I think my reading is 70% physical books, 20% audiobooks and 10% e-reader.

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

Ha! That's an interesting question, but since we're talking "Fictional" character, I would say Matthew Clairmont, the jaw-dropping good looking vampire from A Discovery of Witches.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

Hidden Gem Book:

Broken Open by Elizabeth Lesser

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

When my dad gave me 1984 by George Orwell.  We both read it and talked about it for hours.

Just Finished:

Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

I'm not one to discriminate and usually will read anything that catches my attention, but, I'm not really into romance novels.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

Wicked by Gregory Maguire

Major book hangover because of:

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.  

Number of Bookcases You Own:

Not enough!  I'm actually in the process of turning my daughter's old baby room into a reading room so I can stack all my books there (and hopefully my family will stop complaining that my books are taking over the house).

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Preferred Place To Read:

Living Room sofa, by the window.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

“Stories are webs, interconnected strand to strand, and you follow each story to the center, because the center is the end. Each person is a strand of the story.”  ― Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

Reading Regret:

Do Not Become Alarmed by Maile Meloy

Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

Love Anthony by Lisa Genova / The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini / Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

That’s a tough one.  This answer changes from time to time.  Right now I'd have to say Neil Gaiman and Lisa Genova (very different styles, I know).

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

I just found out that Anne Rice has a new book from the Vampire Chronicles coming out in October!!!

Worst Bookish Habit:

Judging a book by its cover.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Your latest book purchase:

The Alternate Side by Anna Quindlen

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

Educated by Tara Westover
