Thank you so much to Adrianna from ForTheLoveOfBooks for tagging me in this fun little survey! See her post here and check out her blog, it’s wonderful!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
According to Goodreads, that honor goes to Jennifer L. Armentrout with a whopping 41 books.
…Is anyone surprised?
Followed behind by Colleen Houck (Goodreads obviously counts rereads) and Rick Riordan.
Best Sequel Ever:
Sequels can be rough. It’s very rare that I find a sequel that doesn’t have second book syndrome.
A Court of Mist and Fury is one. I loved this book more than the first one.
Torment by Lauren Kate is the other. The first book of that series is a complete snore fest. The second one gets a hell of a lot better.
The Mermaid’s Daughter by Ann Claycomb
Drink of Choice While Reading:
There’s nothing I specifically drink while reading. Normally just whatever I’m drinking at that moment.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Lately it’s been E-reader. It’s so much easier on my eyes and my hands. Plus, my bookshelves are buckling under the weight of my physical books which are piled because there’s no room.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I was a little emo kid in high school. When I first met my husband, he had long black hair, an eyebrow ring and painted black nails. So any dark, brooding, goth/emo boy would of been right up my alley.
I can only think of Lucas from Easy by Tammara Webber.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Pretty Little Dolls by Ker Dukey.
Definitely not for the feint of heart. Very creepy, dark, explicit and rather gross at times, but it reminds me of a Criminal Minds episode. So I highly recommend it if you can stomach it.
Just read some reviews and heed any warnings you read.
Hidden Gem Book:
Death Island by Kelsey Ketch
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Reading Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Not only did it make me discover my favorite author ever, but it also made me search up Booktube/Book blogging. I wasn’t even aware it was a thing before.
Saven Deception by Siobhan Davis
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
Sci-Fi, certain dark romances.
I tend to also avoid a lot of historical fiction. If anyone has some good recommendations to ease into historical fiction, let me know. I don’t think starting with Outlander was the best idea.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
It’s a tie between Voyager by Diana Gabaldon and Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. Both have 870 pages.
Major book hangover because of:
If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer Armentrout
Number of Bookcases You Own:
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
Preferred Place To Read:
Usually I just read on my couch. Reading in bed is great, but I usually read laying down and there’s a 90% chance I’ll fall asleep. Higher if my cat comes to cuddle.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
Living when others died wasn’t something you just woke up one day and got over, even though sometimes it felt that way. Even when I realized I’d gone an entire day, or maybe two, without thinking about *them*. And sometimes I still felt guilty about that.
-If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I don’t really regret reading any books. Even if they sucked/if I hated them, they still helped me determine what I love in a story.
If I regret anything is not spending more time researching books. Just going through recommendation lists, Kindle Unlimited, Goodreads and just finding books that look good.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
The Bronze Horseman, Hush Hush, The Mortal Instruments.
I’m sure there’s more, but that’s all I can think of right now.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Here I am sounding like a broken record again…
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
The Darkest Star..
Worst Bookish Habit:
Enjoying the book I’m reading but being so excited to read the next book that I’m going to pick up that I start being impatient and skim reading (sometimes)
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
After We Collided by Anna Todd
Your latest book purchase:
The Fallen Series
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
This is a difficult question for me to answer. I have a weird sleep schedule. I work until 10 p.m., so I end up staying up until 4 a.m. regularly. The last book that stayed up past my regular sleep time would be Kissing Tolstoy
Until next time Book Worms,
