Let’s talk books!
I saw this survey on my friend Chelsey‘s blog recently, and decided to give it a go. Like, Chelsey, I’ve been a bit stuck on what to blog about, other than book reviews and recipes, so I decided to switch things up a bit today.
Hope you enjoy!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Probably Sophie Kinsella. I’ve read almost all of hers, except her newest Wedding Night. Other than I’ve Got Your Number, I’ve LOVED all of her books. They’re my guilty pleasure, and are perfect at the end of a long, tiring week.
Best Sequel Ever:
The Reckoning by Alma Katsu! Just as mesmerizing and horrifying as the first in the series (The Taker), The Reckoning surpassed all my expectations of mediocre sequels. It was AMAZING.
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Nothing really. I’m not a coffee or tea drinker. But I do love reading while I eat.
E-Reader or Physical Book?
Physical book all the way!
Fictional Character that You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:
Lol. I don’t date, so this question doesn’t really apply to me. But a character I had a huge crush on while I was in high school was Michael Moscowitz from the Princess Diaries.
Glad You Gave this Book a Chance:
Packing for Mars: Preparing for Life in the Void by Mary Roach. I don’t read non-fiction, but I’d seen this Science book pop up on a lot of blogs/GR pages, so I looked into it, and I’m SO glad I did! Written in a humorous tone, Packing for Mars was very accessible and enjoyable to read. It was perfect for anyone who loves Space and learning more about it.
Hidden Gem Book:
Pretty Girl 13 by Liz Coley. It isn’t that hidden, but I don’t think it’s received the recognition it deserves. Haunting and disturbing, I couldn’t put this one down, not until I figured out who had kidnapped Angie.
Bridget Jones’s Diary, which unfortunately wasn’t as funny and heart-warming as I had wished. I just found her so negative all the time, and also kind of annoying.
Kind of Books You Won’t Read:
Sc-Fi, Fantasy, and straight-up Romance.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Hmm, can’t remember anything specific. Probably something for school.
Major Book Hangover Because of:
Probably Catching Fire in the Hunger Games trilogy. I just remember my mind being BLOWN after that dramatic last line in the book, and going crazy waiting for the 3rd one.
Number of Bookcases you own:
Only one. *blushes* I borrow more than I buy.
One Book You’ve Read Multiple Times:
Lol, just one? I reread A LOT of books, especially the ones I love. But one notable one is probably Pride and Prejudice. I never tire of it, and there’s always something new to discover or think about after each rereading.
Preferred Place to Read:
In my bed, preferably early on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
Quote that Inspires You:
“It is impossible to live without failing something, unless you live so cautiously you may not have lived at all- in which case, you fail by default.” -J.K Rowling
Very Exited For This Release More Than All the Others:
The Descent by Alma Katsu, the last in the Taker trilogy. It was supposed to come out this year, but has been pushed to next year. After such an amazing sequel, I am PUMPED for the last book in this heart-stopping trilogy.
Your Lastest Book Purchase:
Persuasion by Jane Austen. One of Austen’s I don’t own, but one of many I haven’t ready. Need to get on that!
