A-Z bookish survey!

Hello dears! I recently saw the lovely Melanie doing this tag and thought it looked like a fun way to share some bookish facts with you all! πŸ™‚

 

Author you’ve read the most books from

Terry Pratchett (no surprise given how many books are in the Discworld series!)

Best sequel ever

I struggled to answer this one as I tend to prefer first books! But I recently read Scythe and Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman, and holy heck, that was some follow-up!

 

Currently reading

I’m currently reading The Ringmaster’s Wife by Kristy Cambron with my bookclub.

 

Drink of choice while reading

Tea! Always tea.

 

E-reader or physical book

Physical. E-readers give me headaches.

 

Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school

I was a massive wallflower in school so probably no-one haha. But if I’d not been so shy, I’d have gone for someone like Lazlo or Levi ❀

Glad you gave this book a chance

The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech. A recent find – and a beautiful read.

 

Hidden gem book

The Universe versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence. I never see anyone talk about this book but I love it so much.

Important moment in your reading life

I was always a reader but when I went to university, my reading habit got pushed way down and I would hardly ever pick up a book. University ended up being a horrible experience for me and thank goodness I rekindled my passion for reading in my final year or I might never have got through it. From there, I discovered bookstagram – and the rest is history!

 

Just finished

A reread of The Color Purple.

 

Kind of books you won’t read

Mills and Boon! I’m sorry, I just need more than that from my books.

 

Longest book you’ve read

According to Goodreads, it’s A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin at 911 pages!

 

Major book hangover because of…

The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley. I could not get that book out of my head!

 

Number of bookcases you own

4 – one for classics/fancy editions and three for everything else! (And yes, I use any excuse to show off my shelves…)

One book you’ve read multiple times

I’ve read Wuthering Heights more times than I can count.

 

Preferred place to read

In bed or in my comfiest chair in the living room.

 

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels

I can’t pick just one but More Than This by Patrick Ness is full of stunning quotes.

 

Reading regret

I’m not sure what this is actually asking but I don’t regret reading anything. Even if I don’t like a book, it gives me things to think about.

 

Series you started and need to finish (all books are out)

I’m not sure. I suppose I’d say the Three Dark Crowns series… but I’m not in any great hurry!

Three of your all-time favourite books

The Book Thief

The Secret Life of Bees

Station Eleven

 

Unapologetic fangirl for…

Laini Taylor. She is my queen.

 

Very excited for this release more than all the others

After the last question? Of course it’s Muse of Nightmares!

 

Worst bookish habit

I wrote aΒ post about this πŸ˜‰

 

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

A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

 

Your latest book purchase

I bought a short story collection by an indie author; I’ll be reading and reviewing it this month!

 

Zzz-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY too late)

Perfect Prey by Helen Fields. Such a gripping thriller!

 

There you go guys! Hope you enjoyed those 26 facts πŸ˜€ and please, anyone who hasn’t done this tag, give it a go!

  1. Super fun book tag! I haven’t done it yet, and will be doing it… eventually. I have a tag backlog, so shouldn’t be planning more, but this looks like too much fun!

    Also, now I’m jealous not only of your bookshelves, but of your Pratchett covers. They’re so much prettier than the paperbacks Mr. Wyrm has.
