PrettyBooks ran this a while ago, so I thought I'd give it a go as well. It's an A-Z survey about reading and books that should be fun to do!
Author You've Read the Most Books From
When I was on Goodreads, I discovered that the answer is actually Ann M. Martin, from whom I read over 90 books as a kid. In terms of authors I still read, it's Meg Cabot, at a whopping 29 books read. That surprises me, although it shouldn't. I mean, I have read an awful lot of her stuff!
Best Sequel Ever
Hmm. This is a bit hard. Let's see. Ah. There are so many series out there where I loved a later book more than the first! If we're specifically talking about the second book, there's Point Blank from the Alex Rider series or Catching Fire from The Hunger Games trilogy. It's always a good sign when I like a sequel even more, I think, because it shows the series has real longevity.
I am slowly, in my free time, making my way through the second book in Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle, The Dream Thieves.
Drink of Choice While Reading
The drinkish kind. Lemonade? Chocolate milk? Something like that.
E-books or Paper Books
I will always prefer paper, but e-books are also useful and have their place.
Fictional Character You Would Have Dated in High School
Glad You Gave this Book a Chance
Harry Potter. See my book snobbery post.
Hidden Gem Book
There are so many out there. My pick for this right now is The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Because it's SMeyer, lots of people automatically pass over it, but it is a legit book. I love it so much.
Important Moment in Your Reading Life
...when I learned how to?
I don't know what book I last finished. Even though it's only Day 6, I feel like I've been NaNoing forever. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm oh yes! The last book I finished was The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa.
Kind of Book You Won't Read
I'm still easing myself very slowly into adult fiction. I don't read erotica, per my morals, and I don't like stuff with lots of sex, for the same reason. I'm not a big historical fiction person, either, but I give it a try when a big new one comes out.
Longest Book You've Ever Read
Probably the Bible?
Major Book Hangover
When I get a book hangover, I recommend the book online.
Number of Bookcases You Own
One. I want more very badly. In fact, my dream splurge, someday, is to have a secret library. Like, behind a bookshelf, there will be a room with even more bookshelves. Yes.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times
All of the books I love have been multiply read, but if we're picking one I'd say The Giver by Lois Lowry.
Preferred Place to Read
ALL OF THE PLACES!
I regret my book snobbery. I also regret that there's not more time and more chances to read. There are so many good books in the world!
Series You Started and Need to Finish
I read books as they come out. Like, all of the books. Okay, not all of the books, but a lot of them. Listing the series I'm in the midst of would take forever.
Three All-Time Favorite Books
Um, Wuthering Heights, The Giver, and Shatter Me? (My actual favorites are the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series, but I thought I'd be less obvious here.)
Unapologetic Fangirl For
See the above, and also Doctor Who.
Very Excited for This Release
Oh, there are so many... so many books... um... I'm looking forward to the next book in Margaret Peterson Haddix's The Missing series, coming sometime in 2014, along with her very near release of Full Ride. I'm looking forward to Marissa Meyer's next Lunar Chronicles book, Cress, in February. I'm very very hopeful about the last book in Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me trilogy, Ignite Me, which will be released the same day as Cress. The third book in Neal Shusterman's Unwind Dystology was just released last month, and I'm waiting for the fourth book when that eventually comes out. OH! There's also the final book in Kiera Cass's The Selection trilogy, The One, which is coming out in May 2014.
Worst Reading Habit
When I said I'd read anywhere... I meant it. I read in the shower, which is bad for books, I read while I'm eating, which is bad for books. I'm awful at taking care of books, I really am. I'm just so focused on the story, the actual physical book doesn't matter to me.
X Marks the Spot: Start on Your Top Left Bookshelf and Pick the 27th Book
From the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, we have the fourth book, Rising Storm.
Your Latest Book Purchase
I think it was Oblivion by Anthony Horowitz, the last book in The Gatekeepers series.
I stay up late at night for almost any book I happen to be reading at the time. It's best if I get my reading done earlier in the day, LOL.
