A – Z Book Survey
Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner created this fun A-Z survey, a reminder of her Myspace days. Here for what it’s worth are my answers. All links are to goodreads.
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Probably a tie between Robert Jordan and Anne McCaffrey.
Best Sequel Ever:
Wow, really hard one because there are so many to choose from but I’m going with Wolf Who Rules by Wen Spencer. Adore this book.
I’m between books because of Veronica Mars. I’m in the middle of season 1 and with work etc., there just isn’t time in the day to read and watch Veronica. The dilemma!
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Tea. It used to be Coca Cola but I kicked the addiction.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Both. Either. I don’t worry how the story is presented as long as I get to read it.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Complete fantasy but I’m going with Daemon Black. Who can resist the bad boy.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Tinker by Wen Spencer. The awful cover put me off for ages but eventually I gave the book a chance and loved it.
Hidden Gem Book:
A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
In desperation at having nothing to read – I pinched The Eye of The World (Wheel of Time Book 1) from my older brother. Hooked
A reread of The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I’m easy – I’d read the back of the Cornflakes box
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Probably one of the Wheel of Time books or The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. All are 600 pages +
Major book hangover because of:
A Memory of Light, the final book in the Wheel of Time series. I still have no idea what I think of it – my brother and I started reading the series a long time ago. At the time we started reading the series, 3 books had been published and the series was meant to be complete in 6 books. 14 books, a prequel, an encyclopaedia, an author change and numerous theories later I was finally finished.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
5. Ebooks were a blessing because I was in danger of having no room in my bedroom for me. Nowadays I only buy about 8 paper books a year, everything else is an ebook.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith – love prickly heroines.
Preferred Place To Read:
Snuggled up on my couch with a cup of tea.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
I’m not really one for quotes – words don’t resonate, I’m all about the characters.
Not quitting the Anita Blake series earlier. I kept going despite the crazy change from urban fantasy to urban erotica and now I despise the characters. I can’t even re-read the earlier books that I loved.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
Women of the Underworld by Kelley Armstrong
Three of your All-Time Favourite Books:
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Cast in Sorrow by Michelle Sagara – like I said, I love prickly heroines.
Worst Bookish Habit:
Skipping ahead to see what happens. I literally wander forward and backwards through a book. Terrible habit that I try so hard to curb but…
Your latest book purchase:
The Night Itself by Zoe Marriott
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews. I was a zombie at work the next day but so worth it.
