A to Z Book Survey
A: Author you’ve read the most books by: Charlaine Harris-due to keeping up with the Sookie Stackhouse Series.
B: Best Sequel Ever: I loved The Prisoner of Azkaban the best out of the Harry Potter Series. Does that count? Or The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe which was a sequel technically.
C: Currently Reading: The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood.
D: Drink of Choice While Reading: If it’s Morning/Day then Coffee, or if it’s the evening Wine.
E: E-Reader or Physical Book? Physical Book all the way, nothing can replace that for me.
F: Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Dated in High School: Um, I didn’t really date in High School… Can we change this to “would have had a crush on”? If so, then probably Odd Thomas? He would have been just weird enough and just outcast enough. lol
G: Glad You Gave This Book a Chance: Ophelia by Lisa Klein. I found it for like $3 on Amazon one Black Friday and thought “Why not?” I ended up really enjoying the spin on Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
H: Hidden Gem Book: The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz. I’m not huge on self-help books, but this one totally turned my entire view of love and how I respond/give it around. I recommend it for ANYONE, single or coupled up.
I: Important Moment in Your Reading Life: I’ve always loved reading. My dad was a reader so he instilled the love of books in me from a very early age-but one book that really turned it around was in the fourth grade I read Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison and loved it. It’s still a book I remember to this day as a turning point in stories for me.
J: Just Finished: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice. Blah.
K: Kinds of Books You Wont Read: I’m pretty open… But you lose me when it comes to really religious/preachy books or westerns.
L: Longest Book You’ve Ever Read: The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. Worth it.
M: Major Book Hangover Because Of: Hmm… I can’t think of any time I’ve had a huge book hangover. I guess… I was pretty sad after reading Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love by Matthew Logelin because it was heartbreaking…
N: Number of Book Cases You Own: Three, currently. (Well, that have books on them anyway.)
O: One book you have read multiple times: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Hilarious.
P: Preferred place to read: The couch, curled up by the plant and the window. Or up in the mountains camping, that’s the best!
Q: Quote That Inspires You/Gives You Feels From a Book You’ve Read: “I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.” – The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
R: Reading Regret: Twilight. Though the Claiming of Sleeping Beauty comes in a close second. lol
S: Series You Started But Still Need to Finish (All Books Are Out): The Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz & The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris.
U: Unapologetic Fangirl For: Neil Gaiman EVERYTHING & dirty vampire romance novels (not Twilight).
V: Very Excited for This Release More Than Others: Can’t think of anything… Probably more Neil Gaiman. lol
W: Worst Bookish Habits: Starting a book and not finishing it, taking forever to pick it back up in between readings… Probably the same as Beth-off trend and wont get an e-reader.
X: X Marks the Spot, Start at the Top of Your Shelf and Pick the 27th Book: I’m at work, and not at home… Soooo I’m just going to guess at what I think it is and it’s likely one of the three books in the His Dark Materials series, which I have yet to read but do own.
Z: Zzzz-Snatcher Book-(The last book that kept you up way too late): Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. It took me a bit to get into, but once I was caught up in the thriller I was hooked.
