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.
“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.
“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
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.
