A-Z Bookish Survey

Part II of today’s posts will be a survey that was originally posted by The Perpetual Page Turner a few days ago! I haven’t been on a computer for a few days, so I’m a bit behind on this, but I finally did it!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

I was going to say JK Rowling, but Chiara reminded me about the Phantom Stallion series by Terri Farley, and that one has 24 books in the series!

Best Sequel Ever:

Ohhh I don’t know… I’ve suddenly forgotten all the series I’ve read! Catching Fire was really good, though.

Currently Reading:

The Wizard Heir and Fat Girl Fairy Boy

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Water, or iced tea (the flavor depends on my mood)

E-reader or Physical Book?

I like my kindle for the price, but nothing beats holding and smelling a paperback!

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Peeta Mellark, my dandelion boy

Glad You Gave This Book a Chance:

Fat Girl Fairy Boy. I was a bit hesitant because I wasn’t so sure what it was about, but I’m loving it so far and only 25% through it!

Hidden Gem Book:

Angelfall by Susan Ee. You can read my gushing here! I don’t think I’ve raved this much about a book in a long time!

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

First reading the Harry Potter series when I was eleven, and then again about two months ago when I picked up my first for-pleasure book since graduating college.

Just Finished:

Sky’s End by Lesley Young – my review was part I of today’s posting!

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Mystery, as a general rule. I’ll give it a shot, but it’s really not my favorite.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

Under the Dome by Stephen King, clocking in at 1088 pages.

Major Book Hangover Because Of:


Number of Bookcases You Own:

Just one… and it’s overflowing!

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

The entire Harry Potter series, but mostly Goblet of Fire and The Deathly Hallows

Preferred Place to Read:

On my bed, with my fan on and my music playing

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

“We can’t choose where we come from, but we can decide where we’re going.” – Perks of Being a Wallflower. I may have paraphrased it a bit.

Also, “Always.” – The Deathly Hallows. Pretty much that entire book gives me feels.

Reading Regret:

Not reading for pleasure during my college years. I missed out on a lot.

Series You Started and Need to Finish (all books are out in series):

The Mortal Instruments series! I know the last book isn’t out yet, but I’ve only read City of Bones. I have the next four books on my shelf too…

Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:

Must you ask this question?

The Deathly Hallows


Fahrenheit 451

Ender’s Game (yeah, I cheated. You’re lucky I only went one over!)

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Anything Harry Potter related!

Very Excited for this Release More than All the Others:

World’s End, the sequel to Angelfall: November 19!

Worst Bookish Habit:

To some people, dog-earing pages is a sin. I don’t see a problem with it, so I guess my worst habit would be reading two books at one time!

X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I think this is turning into a HP post!

Your Latest Book Purchase:

Shadow of the Hegemon and Ender in Exile, both by Orson Scott Card

Zzz-Snatcher Book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

Well, as I’ve mentioned in quite a few posts, I’m a sufferer of insomnia, and frequently stay up till 2 or 3 in the morning, so I read a lot in the wee hours of the day! One book that I couldn’t have put down even if I was able to fall asleep would be Left Drowning by Jessica Park. You can read my review here.

  1. The author I’ve read the most books by was probably Gertrude Chandler Warner–she wrote all the Boxcar Children books. They were the first chapter books I ever read, and there were a ton of them.

    You don’t read mystery? I nearly had a heartattack when I saw that–but I guess it’s not for everyone. 🙂

    I dog-ear pages ALL THE TIME, but my parents do not like that. So I don’t do it as much anymore. 😛

    I really enjoyed reading this survey. Awesome post!! Laters! –MJ

    • I only ever read one book from the Boxcar Children: the dog show one. And maybe a few pages from the very first one? For some reason I never got into that series!

      With mystery it’s just the thing of not knowing, plus it’s usually about murder and I kind of find them to be a bit formulaic…

  2. If I would take this survey, it’ll become something very similar to yours… Harry Potter everywhere! *_* And how could it be different? Those books changed my childhood and teenage years,they’re the main source of inspiration of my first writings,and J.K.Rowling is amazing 😀 (I know,I’m fangirling now)

    Anyway,I have a worse bad habit: I read when I’m eating,so I sometimes leave some…er…traces of my breakfast or lunch on my books. I know,I’m terrible D:
