I saw this tag on The Bookavid. I thought it looked like fun.
Author you’ve read the most books from:
According to Goodreads it’s Anne Rice with 18. Followed closely by Stephen King at 16. (actually we get Rachel Kramer Bussel in between those with 16, but she has edited many of the books I have read, so i don’t think that counts) I obviously love horror…a lot.
Best Sequel Ever:
I am gonna go with Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins for this one. No big deal if you disagree but you would be really WRONG!
I am currently reading The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I know this came out like a few years ago, but I just got it.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Coffee followed closely by bottled beer, (don’t judge me!).
E-reader or Physical Book?
I love my physical book collection. It is just so much easier to read an ereader, though. I have to make that my choice because 1) not losing my page when I try to get more comfortable 2) the cost is almost always less 3)being able to read in the dark and 4) the fact that most books have a text to speech option. I choose ebooks hands down.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I didn’t date in high school. True story: I dropped out of school after eight grade. (i went back and got a degree in college with my G.E.D. but that is besides the point) If I had went to high school, I would totally have been a bad ass and dated…I don’t know. All the high school books are full of kids that are such squares. I need more time to think about this.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was the first YA book I ever read as an adult. I was very dismissive of YA before a co-worker, a nurse in her 40’s, told me it was “just such good literature”. I am grateful to this day.
Hidden Gem Book:
Great book. Great world building and fantasy elements. I loved it and it only has 78 ratings on goodreads. It needs more love!
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Discovering text to speech on my kindle. I swear this changed my reading life.
This was so gory and good.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I am not into New Adult Romance. I have had a couple of books from the genre fall way flat for me. Basically if I see hot people kissing/and or cuddling on the cover, I probably won’t read it.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
The Bible. I am not kidding. I read all 1,248 pages of this, and a whole bunch of other books that helped me understand it. You may know I am a Humanist and don’t currently subscribe to religion, but a one time I was all about this book. I started at in the beginning and read it all the way through to amen.
Major book hangover because of:
I think the last book that did this to me was Memory Man by David Baldacci. This was strange because it is usually a great fantasy or dystopian book that causes these for me, but I just wanted to read more about that character. Fortunately, it didn’t last long. I usually just switch genres whenever I feel like not reading after a really great book. That usually gets me over it.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Five. If you want pictures, please see this post.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice. I have read this book like 3 times. I just couldn’t find anything better to read in my house at the time.
Preferred Place To Read:
On my bed, reclined.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“I solemnly swear I am up to no good”, J.K.Rowling Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. This pretty much just describes every cool character in every book I have read. Plus I loved that book.
Not reading enough non-fiction in my youth. I might be too old now to glean the information that is available to me in these books now. I have noticed I am much less malleable in my world views now that I am getting older.
Series You Started And Need To Finish:
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Beside my absolute favorite, The Vampire Lestat, of course.
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
The Vampire Lestat. There isn’t a cooler character I would want to meet IRL.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
It is suppose to be about a library, need I say more?
Worst Bookish Habit:
X Marks The Spot (Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book):
Your latest book purchase:
I shouldn’t have, but I couldn’t resist. I
am poor have such a limited budget for books. I am optimistic this will change soon.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Pretty much every book I read keeps me up way too late. This one didn’t have any safe stopping place, so I stayed up late finishing it.
