A-Z Bookish Survey

This survey was created by Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner, and I'm very late to take part – she created it way back in 2013! – but… I just couldn’t resist! Before I started blogging, I took part in lots of reading challenges on Goodreads, and quite a few of them were A-Z challenges, and this reminds me of those. Sadly, I don’t get time to update or take part in them anymore, but maybe things will calm down a bit eventually!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Agatha Christie. I only found this out recently when I did Top Ten Tuesday topic when I counted all the Christie books I own. I bought and read most of them way back when I was in college, or shortly after graduating.

Best Sequel Ever:

Gosh, this is hard! I have to choose one I read this year that won't leave my mind, and that's Resistance by C.J. Daughery

(I’m assuming “sequel” in this case can mean any book in a series that isn’t the first book.)

Currently Reading:

Reborn by C.C. Hunter

Drink of Choice While Reading:

I don't usually eat or drink when I’m reading, but if I do drink anything, it’ll be just water or coffee. And I’ll keep them well away from the book or my iPad! Ever since I accidentally spilled water on my laptop a few months ago, I’ve become a little paranoid!

E-reader or Physical Book?

I love the convenience of eBooks, but there isn't really a contest - physical books will always win out for me.

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

Oh Lordy! As much as I’d like to say someone uber-popular like Daemon Black, in reality it would have been a guy like Tucker Avery from Unearthly – only minus the cowboy hat – or Varen Nethers from Nevermore.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma -- This book broke me in hundreds of different ways. It completely shocked me, and I’m really glad I wasn’t put off by the subject matter. It was completely worth it.

Hidden Gem Book:

Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Gosh, there has been so many, but probably one of the more recent moments would be when a friend of mine introduced me to Goodreads. The amount of books I’ve read has exploded since then!

Just Finished:

Crane by Stacey Rourke

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Non-Fiction -- Ok, maybe not NEVER, or WON’T, but they remind me too much of school, and text-books and ... yeah *shudders* Sorry, not for me right now.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

According to GoodReads, it’s The Host by Stephanie Meyer (but I don’t think that’s correct!)

Major book hangover because of:

I have three that won’t leave my mind right now – Resistance by C.J. Daugherty (That ENDING!! *Aarrghh!*) – Splintered by A.G. Howard (Moooorpheus!) – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (Best new series I’ve read in what feels like forever!)

Number of Bookcases You Own:

5 floor-to-ceiling, and 2 half height bookcases. Not all of them are full of books (unfortunately!) I use them as other storage as well. But *Cough* yeah… I might have a slight addiction!

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Preferred Place To Read:

In bed :)

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

Ahh, I’m not very good at collecting quotes. Questions like this makes me wish I did! A recent one would be from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (and yes, I do plan on reading the other six, soon!!)

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

Reading Regret:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth -- I wish I had stopped after Divergent. I loved that book, but Insurgent was a let-down, and spoiled my memories of it.

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

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

This list keeps changing, but today it'd be:

Angelfall by Susan Ee
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Twilight. Yeah, yeah, yeah. The rose-tinted glasses might have faded since I read it, but it’s responsible for introducing to me how awesome the Young Adult genre is. For that, I’ll be a fan for a long time to come ;)

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

End of Days by Susan Ee -- Sadly, there isn't a cover yet.

Worst Bookish Habit:

Once I start a series, unless I hate one of the books in the series, I just have to finish it. This might not be so bad for trilogies, but when you begin a series that already has ten or so books published… yeah, not so fun!

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

Die for Me by Amy Plum

Your latest book purchase:

Unhinged by A.G. Howard

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

Resistance by C.J. Daugherty. I tried my best to read it slowly, so I could savour it since it’ll be a year until the next book in the series comes out and all that good stuff. So, I would stop reading and try to fall asleep. An hour later I’m still awake, thinking about the book and end up giving in and continuing on reading!


  1. Love reading these types of posts - Defiance is a book that hit my radar this week too.

    Here's mine from when I started blogging -

    1. I love them too! They're a really nice change from the usual read, review, meme, repeat cycle =)
