A to Z Book Tag



I just realized that I love doing book tags but the whole purpose is that you're supposed to be tagged by someone -- not that that's required (obviously) but it's how it was created -- and I don't think I've ever actually done a book tag traditionally speaking. Huh. Oh well. Here's another one I saw on Tumblr (and tweaked) because I liked it. This one is a little on the long side (because A to Z is a lot of questions!) but I kept them short (ish)...

Author you love the most

JK Rowling (I feel like a broken record)

Best sequel ever

Sequels are notoriously my least favorite! But Magic Study by Maria V Snyder was excellent. Although Dark Passage by MJ Putney was great too.

Currently reading

Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas; Gambit by CL Denault; Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Drink of choice while reading

Tea or water (they're kind of my drink of choice always)

E-reader or physical book?

Both, depends on the book

Fictional character you could actually see yourself falling love with

Mr. Darcy (cliche much? I don't even care)

Glad you gave this book a (second) chance

Queen's Thief by Megan Whalen Turner (my brother basically begged me to read this one, though he would deny it)

How many books you've read

Goodreads says 1,081 books

Ice cream required to deal with all the feels

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Just finished

Spinning Starlight by RC Lewis

Kind of books you won’t read

There's no set "kind", it just depends on how I feel about it at the time

Longest book you’ve ever read

I'm not even sure, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte possibly? (Will be Count of Monte Cristo once/if I finish that fella)

Major book hangover

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Number of bookcases you own

2 small ones & 2 full sized

One book you’ve read multiple times

Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling holds the highest number of rereads, hands down.

Preferred place to read

My bed, obviously

Quote that describes your life

“In new situations, all the trickiest rules are the ones nobody bothers to explain to you. (And the ones you can't Google.)” from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Reading regrets

I know this is supposed to be specific examples, but my biggest regret is that I'm getting to the point where I've read so many books that they're blurring together. I don't like that at all. The books I love should not blur together, they should be distinct and unique and special!

Series you started but still need to finish

Dozens? Probably.

Top three (fantasy) favorite series of all time

1. The Harry Potter series
2. The LOTR series + The Hobbit
2. The Study series by Maria V Snyder

Unapologetic fangirl

The Percy Jackson series, I can just really get behind this one from a fandom perspective

Very excited for this upcoming release

Winter by Marissa Meyer!!

Worst bookish habit

My TBR pile grows and I just ignore it when starting new books

X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (supposedly next on my TBR... we'll see)

Your latest book purchase

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Zzz snatcher book: last book that kept you up WAY late

All of them? Most recently was Spinning Starlight by RC Lewis because I finished it yesterday (last night)!
