A to Z Book Survey

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. 

Currently Reading:

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. 

Just Finished:

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.

Reading Regret:

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.
