A to Z Bookish Survey

So I saw this on a LOT of blogs on Sunday, and thought it looked kinda fun.

On the 9th August Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner posted a meme called ‘A to Z survey’. It’s a bit of fun where she poses a series of questions which correspond to the letters of the alphabet.

I’ve also provided Goodreads links in case you want to look up any of my choices.

Author you’ve read the most books from: Laurell K. Hamilton – I’ve read 30 books by her. [Goodreads]

Best Sequel Ever: Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin [Goodreads]

Currently Reading: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck [Goodreads]

Drink of Choice While Reading: Whatever is close to hand, which most often would be Coca-Cola.

E-Reader or Physical Book? Physical Book I’m afraid, even though they do take up a lot space.

Fictional Character You Would Probably Have Dated in High School: Harry Potter. Need I add more?

Glad You Gave This Book a Chance: The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien [Goodreads]; I didn’t think it would interest me at all.

Hidden Gem Book: The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede [Goodreads]

Important Moment in your Reading Life: Being read to by my Mum every night when I was little.

Just Finished: The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith [Goodreads]

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read: Stuff that potentially contains gratuitous violence. Don’t mind the psychological stuff, but too much violence and gore is a definite no for me.

Longest Book You’ve Read: The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien [Goodreads] as I read it as one book.

Major Book Hangover Because Of: Don’t think I’ve ever had one of these. Or, at least I can’t recall it. That’s good, right?

Number of Bookcases You Own: 3, although one of them contains my manga and comic collection.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times: The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce [Goodreads] Yes, I know it’s a series rather than a single book, but you can get it in a single bind-up (or at least you could).

Preferred Place to Read: Funnily enough, in front of the TV.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: The Sandman [Goodreads] has a lot of great, interesting quotes. But my favourite in a lot of ways is probably:

People think dreams aren’t real because they aren’t made of matter, or particles. Dreams are real. But they are made up of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes…- The Sandman Volume One Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman, p. 148

Reading Regret: Almost all the books I was forced to read in school, at sixth form and university. I’m sure there are some I would have liked had they not been required reading.

Series You Started and Need to Finish (all books are out in the series): The Temeraire [Goodreads] series is probably the only one, but I’m a bit nervous to continue it as I LOVED the first book so much.

Three of Your All-Time Favourite Books: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen [Goodreads], The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks [Goodreads], & Temeraire by Naomi Novik [Goodreads]

Unapologetic Fangirl For: Tamora Pierce [Goodreads]

Very Excited for This to be Released More Than Any Other: The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead [Goodreads]

Worst Bookish Habit: Probably the fact that I will use anything as a bookmark. I have been known to use tables, the remote, another book, plates, drinks, food… The list is endless.

X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book: Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll [Goodreads]. My shelves are organised alphabetically, with some of my faves having their own bookshelf.

Your Latest Book Purchase: That would be my last Amazon order, of which 4 books have arrived – Tiger’s Curse [Goodreads], I Hunt Killers [Goodreads], Biting Bad [Goodreads], & The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden [Goodreads].

Zzz-snatched Book (The Last Book That Kept You Up WAY Late): Erm… Affliction by Laurell K. Hamilton [Goodreads] I think.

I might not have written/designed this meme but if you decide to answer it/have already answered it please leave me a link so I can read your answers too.

  1. Physical books do take up a lot of space, but they’re so pretty! I think I’d rather date one of the Weasley twins that Harry… I always loved the Weasleys πŸ™‚
    I’m not good with books that have a lot of gore in them either, they always make me feel ill.
    Ahaha, I love that you use anything and bookmarks!
