A-Z Bookish Survey

I figure since I’m fairly new on the bookish blogging landscape, I thought I could do a survey. I love surveys and it would be fun to do, plus I’d love to see other bloggers do this so copy pasta away.

Author you’ve read the most books from:
Probably Chuck Palahniuk. When I was in high school, I was in love with his writing and I read everything I could get my hands on. I was also really into Panic! at the Disco so when I found out he was an inspiration for some of their songs, I had to read his stuff.

Best Sequel Ever:
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Besides the first book, it’s my favorite of the series and I love it.

Currently Reading:
“Librarian” by Brian Fence. It’s wonderful.

Drink of Choice While Reading:
Coffee, coffee, coffee. Hence the title of this blog. I’m also a big fan of tea (hot and iced). My boyfriend works at a local fair trade, organic coffee roaster so I get free coffee and tea and it is wonderful.

E-reader or Physical Book?
Both, I have preferences for some books. Longer books I enjoy more in physical form but I can’t explain why.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Ronald Weasley. I’m pretty much dating him now.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
“Slide” by Jill Hathaway, shot in the dark and I loved it.

Hidden Gem Book:
“A Gracious Plenty” by Sheri Reynolds. It’s an unassuming, yet magical book.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:
My parents, brother, and I used to read Harry Potter when they first came out. We read aloud in the living room and went in a circle. It was marvelous and made me really love reading.

Just Finished:
“The Art of Fielding” by Chad Harbach

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I’m not really into mysteries but I also feel like I haven’t read any good ones. Also, historical fiction. I’ve never been a history fan, but again maybe I just haven’t read any good ones.

Longest Book You’ve Read:
“Storm of Swords” by GRR Martin at 1200+ pages but I also read the Brothers Karamozov on my Kindle and it didn’t have page numbers but it certainly felt as long.

Major book hangover because of:
“Insurgent” definitely gave me a bit of a book hangover. I didn’t read anything for a while after that.

Number of Bookcases You Own:
Well, I’m in the process of moving so it’s hard to say. I still have a very large one at my parent’s house filled with my high school books. I have a big box packed right now that used to be on a bookshelf in my current apartment, and then I have an old printer cabinet filled with all my favorites. But my Kindle is my main source of books since college.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
“Animal Farm” by George Orwell. I’ve read it so many times because the first time I read it, I was about 8 or 9.

Preferred Place To Read:
Outside if I can but I end up reading the most on the bus.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“Not all who wander are lost.” -JRR Tolkien

Reading Regret:
Not being able to spend enough time reading.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
The Lord of the Rings (haven’t read 2 or 3)

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Cloud Atlas, The Charmed Sphere, Harry Potter (all of them)

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Fantasy and sci-fi

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
The rest of A Song of Ice and Fire

Worst Bookish Habit:
Buying books faster than I can read them.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
As I mentioned, most of my books are in a big giant box so I’m going to do this with my Kindle and pick the 27th book: Les Mis! I haven’t read it yet, hence why it’s so far back in my Kindle.

Your latest book purchase:
“Born in Flames”  by Candace Knoebel

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Between work and school, I haven’t had time to stay up late. I think Cloud Atlas probably. It was so long, it kept me up many nights.

One thought on “A-Z Bookish Survey

  1. 1. I am jealous that you get free coffee. That is all.
    2. I love that you are dating Ron Weasely.
    3. I think it is fantastic you and your family read Harry Potter together physically (not just at the same time). I read an article recently about a single dad and his daughter who started reading together every night when she was young and continued the tradition until she went to college. They read together before she went to her prom! It made me cry.
    4. I have the same reading regret – especially now that school has started back!
