Book Tag: A-Z

I wrote down somewhere that I was tagged in this, but I can not for the life of me remember by whom. Nevertheless, here we go!

Author you've read the most: Agatha Christie and J. K. Rowling

Best sequel ever: I usually find sequels disappointing, but Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor was amazing.

Currently reading: I'm writing this in advance, so it'll probably change by the time this goes up, but right now I'm reading Etta and Otto and Russel and James by Emma Hooper. And Zen Poems.

Drink of choice while reading: Coca-Cola or Peach Ice Tea. Hot chocolate for wintertime.

E-reader or physical book?: Physical.

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in High School: Hm. George Weasley.

Glad you gave this book a chance: Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham.

Hidden gem book: Midwinterblood by Marcus Segdwick.

Important moment in your reading life: When I started to read in English.

Just finished: A Slip Under the Microscope by H. G. Wells.

Kind of book you won't read: Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James.

Longest book you've read: Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien

Major book hangover because of: Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling (every damn time, man).

Number of bookcases you own: One big one, yet not big enough, in my apartment, and four at my parents house.

One book you've read multiple times: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Preferred place to read: My bed. At night, while it's raining, and everyone else has gone to sleep.

Quote that inspires you / gives you all the feels from a book you've read: "She made herself stronger by fighting with the wind" from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Reading regret: Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.

Series you started and need to finish: Seven Realms by Cinda William Chima.

Unapologetic fangirl for: A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin.

Very excited for this release more than all the others: Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin (*tapping fingers impatiently at desk* sigh...)

Worst bookish habit: Buying books without actually wanting to read them. This does not happen often, but when it does, it's so annoying! And every time I'm like: why did I do this? UGH!

X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book: Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.

Your latest book purchase: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.

ZzZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up way late): The Diviners by Libba Bray.


Feel free to do this yourself, I'd love to see it!
