I never noticed that this logo basically says A - Z
Well, reading is slow going this week with all the preparations for school underway. Seems like a good start so far. So here's another fun bookish survey I found. This one is from Wensend. (Hop over there and read her answers too!)
Author you’ve read the most books from
I'm thinking Jodi Picoult.
Best sequel ever
Are we talking series too? Harry Potter and the Mortal Instruments are great series.
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson and Grace Filled Marriage by Tim Kimmel
Drink of choice while reading
Tea (cold weather) or pop (hot weather)
E-reader or physical book?
Physical book is my preference; however, reading cuddled in bed at night, I've found the e-reader more convenient.
Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school
Sadly, I might've dated Edward Cullen from Twilight. I was all for that mushy, unhealthy obsession stuff. A teenager phase, thankfully.
Glad you gave this book a chance
Twilight...I put off reading it for so long, but ended up liking the series.
Hidden gem book (not sure it's hidden, but I don't hear of it very often)
The Color of Water, by James McBride
Important moment in your reading life
First time I read an entire book in one day...Ribsy by Beverly Cleary when I was in third grade.
MWF Seeking BFF by Rachel Bertsche
Kinds of books you won’t read
Sci-fi and fantasy...it's a fine line, cause I've read in both and have found some I like.
Longest book you’ve read
The Count of Monte Cristo at 1462 pages.
Major book hangover because of
Driving with Dead People...quite a memoir. Read it in one sitting. (Is that what they mean by hangover?)
Number of bookcases you own
5. Four at home (one in each bedroom and one in my living room). One overflowing bookcase in my classroom.
One book you have read multiple times
To Kill a Mockingbird.
Preferred place to read
Snuggled up in bed...but I always have a book to read anywhere I may be.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read
? There are way too many possibilities...and I'm not good at recalling them off the top of my head.
That I took so long to find my reading niche...spent a lot of time reading anything and lots of worthless stuff instead of really paying attention and being just a little pickier. Or maybe this question is asking for an actual book that wasn't too great? The Weird Sisters, by Eleanor Brown.
Series you started and need to finish
Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. It would help if I knew it was a huge, not completely published series when I started it years ago, I would've waited. Now the first book is a movie and book 6 isn't out until next March!
Three of your all-time favorite books (these are just three favorites...there's so many)
To Kill a Mockingbird
One Thousand Gifts
Unapologetic fangirl for
I don't know that I've gone absolutely crazy over a book. My most recent kick was Les Mis. I read the book, saw the movie, saw the musical all in a couple months time. I even had a photo album of all the uses I found for that fat little book as I carried it around with me.
Very excited for this release more than all the others
I don't know about more than all others, but I am looking forward to the Salinger biography coming out September 3rd. It's called Salinger, by David Shields and Shane Salerno
Worst bookish habit
Scratching my head in concentration while I read.
X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book
Which shelf? I have four here at home! Of the 4 below, I've only read #4!
Shelf 1: Heart of Darkness and Selected Short Stories, by Joseph Conrad
Shelf 2: The Preservationist, by David Maine
Shelf 3: Triangle, by Katharine Weber
Shelf 4: Bibliotopia or, Mr. Gilbar's Book of Books & Catch-all of Literary Facts & Curiosities. Compiled by Steven Gilbar
