So Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner made this survey and posted it… and I pretty much died. I was so into Myspace and all that stuff when it was still cool, and surveys were just part of the experience. All types of surveys posted in blog posts, bulletin posts, whatever whatever posts…. Oh, it was wonderful. But then it just sort of… stopped. *sigh* I sort of miss that. ANYWAY. How could I resist??
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Sarah Dessen… 11 books, which is all of her novels.
Best Sequel Ever:
I actually had a really hard time answering this. I loved The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson more than the first book. I also loved Where She Went by Gayle Forman, though both IIS and WSW are good books.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Usually water. Water is actually my go-to drink always. I like tea as well. Hot chocolate in the winter.
E-reader or Physical Book?
I actually really love both. I generally have moods where all I want to read is physical books, and sometimes I’m attached to my Kindle. It depends.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I can’t think of a character right now, but he would definitely be a douche bag. *shrugs* I guess I was terrible at choosing people.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Hidden Gem Book:
In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters!
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
I always say this, but when I read The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. It got me into reading again.
I haven’t finished a book in longer than I would like to say. But Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I don’t really like nonfiction very much unless it’s about something or someone I really care about. Sometimes I will come across a random nonfiction book that I fall in love with, but meh.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Major book hangover because of:
Oh man, I couldn’t even tell you.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
3. They’re all way too small. And I don’t just mean I have a lot of books (though I do), but they’re actually rather small bookcases.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Preferred Place To Read:
I don’t have a preferred place, but I often end up in bed. I like sitting outside to read a lot too.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
So I was going through my quotes on Goodreads and realized a lot of them make me super emotional. Like, I had such a hard time choosing just one. At the end of the day, though, I chose the one that I always think of first. It reminds me of high school. Bleck.
“When I got to my own face, I found myself staring at it, so bright with dark all around it, like it was someone I didn’t recognize. Like a word on a page that you’ve printed and read a million times, that suddenly looks strange or wrong, foreign, and you feel scared for a second, like you’ve lost something, even if you’re not sure what it is.” – From Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
I regret all the reading time I lost in my teens. I’ve always loved books, but something happened when I was a teenager. I just lost the love for a while.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Kind of really Split Second by Kasie West. Yes, please!
Worst Bookish Habit:
Just bookish or blogging as well? Because I always put off writing reviews and such. But at the same time I kind of put off reading too… sometimes. I always check out books from the library, renew them the max number of times, and then keep them until the very. last. day. (Unless I read them and review them quickly, which is usually never.)
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Your latest book purchase:
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
I can’t remember! Oh no. I haven’t stayed up late reading for quite some time, it would seem.
Filling out this survey made me all kinds of nostalgic. Oh man. If you fill it out too feel free to leave a link in the comments and I’ll check out your answers. 😀
