A to Z Book Survey

Happy Tuesday lovelies! Several months ago, I found this fun book survey…and then I forgot about it…until now! I haven’t mentioned it in a while, but I am an avid reader. I love to read. I love getting lost in a book and finding myself in a different time and place. The main reason I don’t have a bunch of tv shows that I’m obsessed with is becuase I read while watching tv. This requires me to have pretty shallow content on 🙂 Last year I read 50 books. Fifty! I’m pretty proud of that. This year, my goal is 52 which comes out to a book a week. I’ve already finished five and one was a re-read, but I’m still counting it! Now…onto the survey!

Author you’ve read the most books from: 

Janet Evanovich – I love her Stephanie Plum series. Fun and easy reads.

Best Sequel Ever:
MockingJay – Suzanne Collins

I loved The Hunger Games trilogy. Like a lot. The second book was actually my favorite in the series. I generally find that the first book is nearly always my favorite in a series, but not this case!!  The second movie is better too!

Another sequel I loved is Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover. The first book is called Slammed. Both are amazing and I was just as captivated by the second as I was the first.

Currently Reading:
A Time to Kill – John Grisham

Drink of Choice While Reading:
Red wine or water 🙂

E-reader or Physical Book?
I love my e-reader, but I’m also into a real book every now and then! I’d say 80% e-reader, 20% real!

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Ender’s Game – Orson Scott Card

This one is an oldie but a goodie. It was written in the 1970’s and I was skeptical as to if I would like it or not. After a few of my close friends and husband telling me to read it, I did and I loved it!

Hidden Gem Book:
Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte

Okay I don’t know if I woluld say it’s a hidden gem, but it’s a gem that people don’t often give a second chance. I had to read this book in high school. At 15 I did not understand or appreciate this book. Needless to say, I’m so glad I gave it another chance!

Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Learning to read?

Just Finished:
The Davinci Code – Dan Brown

One of my most favorite books of all time!

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
Sci-Fi like Star Wars type stuff

Longest Book You’ve Read:
Possibly Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It’s the longest of the HP series at 766 pages!

Major book hangover because of:
Divergent series. I’m obsessed and I feel like I lost friends after Allegient was over. #nerdalert

Number of Bookcases You Own:
Two. A huge one in our living room and small one in our upstairs landing area. A lot of my books are at my parents house.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Harry Potter Series!

Preferred Place To Read:
Snuggled under a blanket on the couch, laying out by the pool or soaking in a warm bath tub!

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.” Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – J.K. Rowling

Reading Regret:
None I can think of right now!

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):

I have an obsessive habit of needing to finish what I start. I can’t think of any series that I have started and haven’t finished with all the books out!

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Angels and Demons – Dan Brown

Divergent – Veronica Roth

Rebecca – Daphne Du Maurier

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
All Dystopian book series…I’m obsessed…

Hunger Games
The Maze Runner

So on and so forth…am I missing some?

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
I’m not sure what I’m excited for now, but in the past I’ve been the most pumped about the last Harry Potter and Last of the Divergent series!

Worst Bookish Habit:
Becoming obsessed with a book and finishing it qicker than I thought I would. This means I’ve probably…

…stayed up too late
…neglected chores around the house
…ignored my husband

…need to buy another book soon 🙂

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Something Blue – Emily Giffen

Your latest book purchase:
UnEnchanted – Chanda Hahn

Cute, easy read. I got it on my Kindle for $0.99 and then read the next two in the series. Nothing too deep or exciting, but I enjoy fairtytale type stories.

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
The Bone Season – Samantha Sannon

So good and interesting once you get into it! It’s supposed to be a 7 book series like Harry Potter. Can’t wait!

So there you have it! My A-Z Book Survey!

Now what books do I need to read? 
I need some new ones to read!!!
