This survey was created by Jaime at The Perpetual Page Turner. I’ve seen this floating around a lot and finally decided to join in!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
J.K. Rowling, followed by Julie Kagawa and Richelle Mead
Best Sequel Ever:
This is a tough one. I’m going to have to with two: Fire with Fire by Sioban Vivian and Jenny Han or Splendor by Anna Godberson.
Sweet Legacy by Terra Lynn Childs
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Mmm…I don’t really drink while I read. Probably water.
E-reader or Physical Book?
When traveling = e-reader. Otherwise = physical book.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Oy. Ok. In high school, Steldor from the Legacy series by Cayla Kluver (he won me over in Allegiance). I actually like cocky, charming, jerks in high school. I’ve grown out of that though, so if I had a book boyfriend today it would be Logan from Defiance by C.J. Redwine.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I was over vampires when I read it and I didn’t want to give it a try at all, but one of my friends convinced me. It’s one of my series of all time.
Hidden Gem Book:
So this is more of a hidden gem for the YA world, but it’s got a very dedicated following (hardcovers for this series sell for about $2,000: Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn. In the YA genre: the Siren series by Tricia Rayburn and Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Clair.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
I don’t know. Probably reading with my Nanny.
Elegy by Amanda Hocking
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
The kind my husband reads 🙂 War, mystery books.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Haryr Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling.
Major book hangover because of:
Being alone and reading too much. When my husband is traveling for a week and I read the whole time he’s gone, the last thing I want to do when he gets back is to read.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
4. One is my husbands, the other 3 are mine.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
The one and only book I’ve ever re-read is Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn.
Preferred Place To Read:
My bed 🙂 Second choice is my couch. If I’m on vacation though, then on a lounge chair in the shade looking at the ocean.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
I have several:
“Nothing is written stone, child. Even if it were, the stones can be shattered” – Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn. It just speaks to me.
“Someone said she’d heard he was in the Great Hall,helping the wounded enter the passage. Someone else thought he’d been seen near the grotto, urging balky horses through. A servant, carrying Sioned’s casket of jewels and cursing for not remembering them earlier, said he’d been upstairs but that had been some time ago.” – Stronghold by Melanie Rawn. Saddest book moment in the world for me.
“Living too much in one’s head can be dangerous.” – Rumors by Anna Godbersen. This one is just so me. I’m very introverted and hardly spoke when I was little—I was always in my own world.
Forgetting how much I loved reading non-classics until a friend made me read Twilight.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
Hunger Games. The first was good, but I’m dying to pick up the others. I will before I see the movie, but otherwise I probably wouldn’t.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn, The Luxe by Anna Godberson, and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. These are more my all time favorite series than books. Oh, I have to add Harry Potter in there too, obviously.
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn and The Luxe by Anna Godberson (clearly!)
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Ashes to Ashes by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han
Worst Bookish Habit:
I don’t have one!!!
My husband says ignoring people when I’m reading (apparently a bomb could go off in the next room and I wouldn’t know—hello, exaggeration).
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
I’m not feeling this question. I;m sorting my goodreads to-read shelf randomly and picking number 27. The answe is (drumroll): Changeling by Philippa Gregory
Your latest book purchase:
Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier and This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
A Spark Unseen by Sharon Cameron
