A-Z Bookish Survey

I was tagged by Mariel quite a while ago and is hosted by Jamie at the Perpetual Page Turner but I’ve finally decided to do it. I hope it’s fun!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Probably J.K Rowling and John Green. And maybe Cassandra Clare as well.

Best sequel ever:

I don’t knowwww. This year though, I would have to say Hollow City by Ransom Riggs or World After by Susan Ee. They were both really amazing. I highly recommend both series.

Currently Reading:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Girl Runner by Carrie Snyder, Atonement by Ian McEwan, and The Hours by Michael Cunningham.

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Some sort of latte for cold days and homemade lemonade for hot days. But I mostly drink water because don’t have the resources or supplies to attain this kind of sustenance.

e-Reader or physical book?

I read from both. Though, an e-reader is far more convenient, I’ll always enjoy reading with an actual book in my hands more.

Fictional Character you would have dated in the past:

Patch from Hush, Hush. Lol. In my former stupidly naive hopeless romantic days, I would have definitely dated Patch. Now, not so much. 

Glad You Gave this Book a Chance:

We Need New Names by Noviolet Bulawayo. I saw her at the LA Times Book Festival award ceremony and her book at the Vroman’s booth a day later, the cover and the blurb drew me in. Both my friends, were kind of meh about it but I decided to buy it anyway. I’m really glad I gave this book a chance because I didn’t really read this genre and it was really eye-opening. I realized that I had many misconceptions about African culture and this book portrayed Zimbabwean life and culture in a way that I hadn’t seen in the media.

Hidden gem book:

Dark Eyes by William Richter. It isn’t a very well-known book in the YA genre and deserves a lot more attention and love. It’s fantabulous.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life:

Getting my first ARC!

Just Finished:

One Hundred Steps by Susan Ee like 2 minutes ago. It’s one hundred words and pretty interesting. You can read for free on wattpad.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Stupid YA books, generally mystery and crime books. Religious books. Stupid erotica.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

A Storm of Swords by George RR Martin at 1,177 pages.

Major Book Hangover due to:

Never really had one.

Number of Bookshelves you own:

One. But does my headboard with two shelvish looking dividers count as well since I also but many of my books there as well?

One Book you have Read Multiple Times:

Riding Freedom by Pam Muñoz Ryan or the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. And the series by Stieg Larson. Good stuff.

Preferred Place to Read:

On my bed, my back facing the window.

Quote that inspires you:

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” 

― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Reading Regret:

Not being able to read more. 

Series you’ve started and need to finish:

The Legend series by Marie Lu and the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I’ve been procrastinating. Oops.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

Far from the Tree by Andrew Solomon

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

Unapologetic Fangirl for:

John Green!!!!! And of course, J.K Rowling, the queen.

Very Extremely Excited for this release:

Winter by Marissa Meyer and the next Ransom Riggs book.

Worst Bookish Habit:

Putting books in the black hole of my backpack.

X Marks the Spot–Look at your bookshelf. What is the 27th book?

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Your Latest Book Purchase:

The Hours by Michael Cunningham

Atonement by Ian McEwan

The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

We Are Now Beginning Our Descent by James Meek

ZZZZ Snatcher–The Book that Kept You From Sleeping:

Hello, (inserts witty literary reference)

Hi, internet. This wordpress will be about books, mostly. Maybe, just maybe the occasional fandom/other interests post. But probably not. I’ll probably collaborate with my totes bestie, who also recently made a book blog as well. Hopefully, there will be more to come soon.

Feel free to ask questions and check out my goodreads as well, which I am quite active on: https://www.goodreads.com/thenerdypuffer
