A-Z Bookish Survey

Gosh, how I love surveys. This one just appeared on my screen and I want to join in on the fun! The A-Z Bookish Survey was created by Jamie over at the Perpetual Page-Turner -- don't forget to stop by her blog, it's aweome! (I wrote this post about two weeks ago but it didn't go up -- story of my life.)

Author you’ve read the most books from:
According to Goodreads, that is Rick Riordan with 19 books. Yup. Though I must say, I read some of the same books in different formats, but whatevs.

Best Sequel Ever:
Eh, does The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan count? It's the sequel series to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, so I think it should.

Currently Reading:
I am currently reading no books! I just finished All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill and will start The Lonesome Young by Lucy Connors next.

Drink of Choice While Reading:
During summer, it's Crystal Clear lemon and passion fruit, during the winter, it's tea. God, I love tea.

E-reader or Physical Book?
I'd pick physical books over e-books any time, even though I love my Kindle. It's convenient, mostly for ARCs but I just can't do without the smell of book pages.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I seriously had to think about this one. I think quite possibly Dexter from Just Listen, not because he's a mucisian, but because he has that dorky cuteness that is adorable.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Pivot Point by Kasie West.

Hidden Gem Book:
Probably Adorkable by Sarra Manning.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Discovering there was such a thing as YA books. I loved reading, but most books I read were adult fiction, either chicklit or mystery/thriller and I just wasn't enjoying them much. I picked up Harry Potter in 2007 and everything took from there, even though I didn't discover the blogosphere until 2010. That really turned my reading life around: so many books that sound awesome! So many people talking about books!

Just Finished:
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill. Good lord, my poor heart. IT ACHES.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I'm not too keen on most adult books, but I'd never read horror because I'm such a chicken. I'd have nightmares for weeks. #wimp

Longest Book You’ve Read:
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (807 pages)

Major book hangover because of:
There are several that come to mind: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson, The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness and Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen.

Number of Bookcases You Own:
Including the one in my living room, I have 9 (of which 6 are double shelves).

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling. I think I've read the entire series about a dozen times, but I always start with the first book when I re-read.

Preferred Place To Read:
On my sofa, the part with the chaise lounge. So comfy!

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
"After all this time?"
"Always," said Snape.” 
~ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling -- I was a sobbing mess.

Reading Regret:
I can't really think of anything.. Maybe starting Harry Potter earlier, but if I had, I wouldn't have discovered the entire world of YA books when I did. So I'm going to settle on not reading the classics. I've been blogging for almost three years now (okay, I started my blog about 3 years ago) and I have read not even a handful. I'm trying to work on it, but I just grab newer releases instead.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
Have you got a while? There are so many series I need to finish! On top of my list now are Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis, Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth (can you believe I have yet to read Insurgent?) and the A Touch Trilogy by Leah Clifford.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Only three?! What is this madness?! Okay, fine. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan and The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Plus the accompanying books in the series. Ha!

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Anything to do with The Hunger Games, Percy Jackson, Rick Riordan.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Blackout by Robison Wells. Variant was brilliant!

Worst Bookish Habit:
Reading multiple books at the same time. Sometimes I find myself reading 5 or 6 books at once and I wonder how I got there.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
The Long Walk by Stephen King.

Your latest book purchase:
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
I don't usually read super late.. But I remember reading Sing Me To Sleep by Angela Morrisson and straight after trying to sleep. Alas, my ugly-cry had taken away any chance of sleep.


If you haven't done this survey yet, what are you waiting for? I tag you! Link your post in the comments, I'd love to check out your answers :)
