Author you’ve read the most books from:
Janette Oke is my most read author. I don't read Janette Oke anymore, but I read her in middle school. I read the entire Love Comes Softly Series twice which is a 12 book series. I also read the Cadian West Series by Janette Oke. She is a great author, but I can't seem to get into her current books she is writing with another author.
Best Sequel Ever:
This is such a hard question, but I would have to answer Fly Away by Kristin Hannah. Although Fly Away was not better than the first book Firefly Lane. It was still incredible and so emotional.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. I'm almost done. 30 pages until the finally.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Usually just water if anything.
E-reader or Physical Book?
I really love my physical books. I have so far boycotted the ereader movement and have NOT bought myself one. Although I do listen to audiobooks on my computer.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
This one is kind of hard, but I have a bookish crush on Jace from the mortal instruments right now. I don't know if I would ever actually date him, but who knows.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen. This book will be reviewed in September for Classics Retold. It had a really great ending although I wasn't sure I was going to like it at the beginning.
Hidden Gem Book:
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. I know this was the answer for question 2, but I can't stop talking about this amazing book. This book was a one of a kind and I can't wait to reread it.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
I would say an important moment in my reading life is the online library accounts. Before I knew about the online account I would always bring the name of a book in and request it through the librarian, but the online account is a simple way to request and renew books. I love the online library account and use it so much I have my library card memorized.
Scarlet by A.C. Gaugen
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I really don't like historial fiction, but if you have a good book to recommend I would be willing to give it a try.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
The Year I Turned 16 by Diane Schwemm. I read this in July of 2011 and it was an amazing book.
Major book hangover because of:
Fly Away by Kristin Hannah. I just couldn't get over how amazing this book was and it made it really hard to start another book.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
I'm not a book buyer which I have mentioned in multiple posts. I do own 1 bookcase except it houses movies instead of books.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I count this as one of my favorite books and I'm sad I still can't get my sister to read it.
Preferred Place To Read:
I really love to lay on the couch and read or I like to lay in my bed and read until my eyes are falling shut.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not.”
― Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper
We all have our flaws, but we love each other anyways and this quote explains that perfectly.
I regret not reading Divergent earlier in the year. Here's a sneak peak it is going to be on my September TBR list along with Insurgent.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
Cedar Cove Series by Debbie Macomber. I love this series and can't wait to finish it.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Firefly Lane, The Time Traveler's Wife, and Twilight
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Kristin Hannah. She is so amazing I can't stop talking about her.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Worst Bookish Habit:
I'm pretty careful with my books I check out from the library. I love them so much. I would have to my worst habbit with paperback is sometimes bending them back too far.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Your latest book purchase:
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
I would have to say City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I couldn't wait to finish it and I have to admit I was a bit disappointed by the ending.
