Tag: A to Z Bookish Survey

I have been blogging for about a year now, and I’m starting to fall into the slump of only doing review posts.

Therefore, as a challenge to myself, I am going to try to post one review and one ‘fun’ post a week.

For my first ‘fun’ post I’ve decided to do the A to Z Bookish Survey, a tag with questions corresponding every letter of the alphabet to bookish related questions.

Interested to see how I answer the questions? Keep on reading to find out my thoughts and opinions.

_ _ _

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Scouring my shelves, the two authors that came up time and again were J.K. Rowling (or Robert Galbraith) and Philippa Gregory.

Best sequel ever:

In my opinion, Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen is hands down one of the best sequels ever written.

Currently reading:

Physical Book: The Accidental Highwayman by Ben Tripp, Audio Book: The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore

Drink of choice while reading:

Nothing, I have an irrational fear of spilling liquid on my books and ruining their physicality

E-reader or physical book :

Physical book. There is noting more cathartic to me than hearing a book spine crack for the first time.

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school:

If I am being honest to 15-17 year old Sara, my fictional high school boyfriend will always be Edward Cullen from Twilight. Now that I am older, and some might say wiser, I can recognize the faults in Mr. Cullen, but back in the day I wanted nothing more than to be in the sparkly arms of a character that redefined the vampire.

Glad you gave this book a chance:

Heartless by Marissa Meyer. When I picked this book up, I had not read a book by Meyer. Now that I have, I know to pick up The Lunar Chronicles one at a time, to amalgamate myself to Meyer’s writing style.

Hidden gem book:

Mischling by Afinity Konar. If you like books with a WWII setting, and are willing enough to read about twins in Auschwitz, this book is a must read.

Important moment in you reading life:

Becoming a reader? Having my mom read The Chronicles of Narnia to my sister and I? My Uncle buying me the first three Harry Potter books? Take your pick.

Just finished:

The Mermaid’s Daughter by Ann Claycomb

Kinds of books you won’t read:

I try not to limit myself in regards to what I read because I am a firm believer in the best books are the ones you aren’t looking for. As for genre I read least often, that would be contemporary.

Longest book you’ve read:

I’ve only just started finding myself in between the pages of epic fantasy novels, so for the time being it would be A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin.

Major book hangover because of:

Either Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling or A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.

Number of bookcases you own:

I have four in the room my boyfriend has dubbed ‘The Book Room’ and one that houses my most beloved series in my bedroom.

One book you’ve read multiple times:

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling.

Preferred place to read:

Much like my answer for my drink of choice while reading, I won’t read anywhere near water. Anywhere else is fair game.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

‘A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.’ – George R.R. Martin.

Reading regret:

I try to live my life without regrets so I regret nothing when it comes to books.

Series you’ve started and need to finish (all books are out in the series):

The Bronze Horseman trilogy by Paulina Simons. I have yet to read The Summer Garden, for reasons unbeknownst to even myself.

Three of your all-time favourite books:

In no particular order: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, and Another Day in the Death of America by Gary Younge

Unapologetic fangirl for:

All of the books?

Very excited for this release more than all the others:

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. 43 days and counting.

Worst bookish habit:

Having to read to the end of a chapter before I put a book down. This is even worse for books that don’t have chapter’s in the traditional sense.

X marks the spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray.

Your latest book purchase:

Hunted by Meagan Spooner.

ZZZsnatcher book (last book that kept you up too late):

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. Still sad this series is over.
