So I saw this survey on another blog and thought it would be something fun and different to do today and possibly every Sunday as well. I do have a review to post tomorrow and another for later this week. I will also be back to doing Top Ten Tuesday this week as well. I have also rented a ton of books from the library. (They let you rent up to 100 books at a time! I only rented 10 though.) So I am going through those pretty quickly because I have a few I bought that I want to read, as well as a long list of other books I’d like to rent. So today I’m going to be doing the A to Z Bookish Survey which was created by The Perpetual Page Turner, and it looked like a lot of fun so here are my answers 🙂
Author You’ve Read The Most From:
Sara Shepard (That should be a given, Pretty Little Liars alone is already up to 17 books, plus add in The Lying Game series.)
Best Sequel Ever:
It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han
What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Drink Of Choice While Reading:
Water, really that is all I ever drink besides some iced tea or Gatorade here and there
E-reader Or Physical Book?
Hands down physical books. I love the smell of a new book and just having it physically in my hands, but I also used the Kindle app and Bluefire Reader app on my iPad to read books from NetGalley and if a book I want to read is really cheap for the Kindle.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Dated In High School?
This one is tough, I’ll edit it later when I can decide.
*Update: I have an answer!*
Carson Ortiz from Don’t Look Back, Review Posted Here
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Hidden Gem Book:
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
Important Moment In Your Reading Life:
Learning about NetGalley. I had no idea that bloggers could get access to advanced copies to review and after I learned about NetGally, I have been able to access so many books.
To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Kinds Of Books You Won’t Read:
Honestly, I am not into YA fantasy novels. I know Harry Potter and books with dragons and stuff are really popular, but I just never was able to get into it.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Beach Blondes by Katherine Applegate (721 pages)
*Beat out The Year I Turned Sixteen by 1 page*
Major Book Hangover Because:
The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy by Jenny Han (My favorite books if you haven’t been able to tell.)
Number Of Bookcases You Own:
Well I have one of those cubby shelves that has like six square sections and I have used up 4 of them for books (the other 2 have my dvds) and then I have 3 shelves on my wall, and I have officially run out of room so I now have a stack on my desk.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler – Seriously though, this book never gets old to reread.
Preferred Place To Read:
In bed or outside on my porch or deck if the weather is nice. (I’d love to add a hammock to my backyard though.)
Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels From A Book You’ve Read:
I’ll have to get back to this one. (Rushing now that dinner is ready…opps.)
Turning my nose up at The Hunger Games. I finally did read them after I watched the movie on Netflix just to see what the big deal was and of course I fell in love.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
The Lying Game by Sara Shepard – Literally the only series I need to finish. All the others I am reading, the books aren’t all out yet.
Three Of Your All Time Favorite Books:
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson, Ten by Gretchen McNeil, and To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Jenny Han, I love every single one of her YA books that she has written. I buy them as soon as they come out, or preorder them even, and have never been disappointed.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All Others:
This is tricky, I have a top three that are all equal with each other, 1.) P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han, the sequel to To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before (Anticipated release date is April 2016 so I’ve got a while to wait.) 2.) Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas, 3.) They All Fall Down by Roxanne St. Claire
Worst Bookish Habit:
I tend to let my TBR list get wayyyy out of control. As of now there’s close to 300 books on it, and that isn’t counting the written lists I have around my room. I tend to sometimes get so excited about the next book I’m planning on reading that I have to take a minute to calm down and focus on the one I’m in the middle of. (I wish I could read two books at once…)
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti
Your Latest Book Purchase:
17 First Kisses by Rachael Allen and The Night She Disappeared and The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die both by April Henry
ZZZ-snatcher Book (the last book that kept you up WAY late):
Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout – Such a good psychological thriller and mysterythat I couldn’t stop reading and put it down.
Wow…that took a lot longer than I originally anticipated. So like I said, I might do bookish surveys every Sunday just as a relaxed, fun posting day. I do have two reviews waiting to go up this week and will be participating in Top Ten Tuesday again as well, so be on the lookout for those posts.
