I found the A to Z Book Blogger Tag on Jamie @ Perpetual Page Turner – it’s a post from 2013, but it’s still accurate for me!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Agatha Christie! I have read 57 novels by her, most of them during a summer I spent with an aunt at her cabin, on a small island in a fjord in Norway. And she brought boxes of books with her for me to read on the beach.
Best sequel ever:
Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews!!
Archangel’s Heart by Nalini Singh
Drink choice when reading:
That really depends where I am, and what time of the day it is. During the day, I prefer coffee or water, and if it’s Friday or Saturday late afternoon or in the evening, red wine 🙂
E-reader or Physical Book?
E-reader all the way! It doesn’t matter how many pages the book is, it’s still light and easy to hold with one hand, turn the pages with the flick of a finger, and I can choose if I need the backlight on or not 🙂 Plus, I can highlight parts I enjoy (or hate) to use for my fave quotes, and I can annotate my book without ruining it. Physical books are for adorning my shelves, and I try to be very careful when I read those!
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Nick from The Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. The reviews were either really good or really bad, and the way the writing was described, I wasn’t sure it would be for me. It so was! I loved that whole series so much, with the writing that’s really original, at least one character that I hated in the beginning, but grew to really love, and a dystopian world that is very dark and brings people to desperation.
Hidden Gem Book:
Bad Ex Karma by Donna Cummings. Actually, most of Cummings books are hidden gems – as not that many people know about them, but I find them to be funny, flirty, and still having subjects that mean something, as well as strong female characters I can identify with.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
This is going to sound cheesy, but I think an important moment in my reading life was when I read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, because it got me back to reading, and it also got me to search the internet for women like myself who are more mature fans of the series. Now, years later, we’re still friends online, and I have discovered so many new books thanks to them!
Wicked Bond by Sawyer Bennett – what a hot ending to her Wicked Horse series!
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I don’t think the kind of book I won’t read has been invented. I don’t read a lot of poetry, but I wouldn’t say I will absolutely not read poetry. The same for any other genre or kind of book I can think of.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
The Fiery Cross (Outlander #5) by Diana Gabaldon that little gem is 1’443 pages long. And I didn’t notice that when reading it thanks to my kindle!!
Major Book Hangover Because of:
Slammed. Because I was a wreck when that book was over. And still now, when I think about it, I get this heavy feeling in my heart… (of course, Slammed is by CoHo).
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Six! And I definitely need to expand.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Multiple as in more than twice? I can’t really think of one… possibly Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, because I had to read it for more than one class, and so, I probably read it twice for the first class, and at least once for the second class.
Preferred Place To Read:
On the couch, with a nice blanket and the lights dimmed! Or in the summer, outside, preferably at a beach somewhere!
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
I forced myself to read more than one of the Hush, Hush books because people kept telling me it got better, and in my opinion they actually didn’t get any better at all… Possibly even worse.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine. I have the last book (and I have ever since it was released) but because I don’t want the series to be over, I keep not wanting to read that last one. This way, the characters’ adventures just continue on for me 🙂
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho, If I Stay by Gayle Forman and The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser.
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Anything and everything CoHo and JA Huss, plus Michelle Mankin, Nalini Singh, Jill Shalvis, Victoria Dahl… the list could go on and on!
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
The Turn by Kim Harrison!! A prequel to her The Hollows series! *jumps up and down*
Worst Bookish Habit:
Requesting ALL the ARCs, then realizing I don’t have time to read my purchased books!
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Cinderella by Colleen Hoover <3
Your latest book purchase:
Fling by Jana Aston <3
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Mr. Mysterious by J.A. Huss. Huss always kills me, because it’s impossible to find the right place to put her books down! Also, this is a tie with Tempting Tempo by Michelle Mankin, because I couldn’t get my brain to switch off until I knew what would happen to Mel and Sager.
