Today is something a little different. Inspired by Wonderfully Bookish I have decided to do a A-Z Book Survey.
A- Author you’ve read the most number of books from. This for me was a tie. I have read all the Harry Potter books and I have read all of the Chronicles of Narnia books. I enjoyed both throughly and they are two of my favourite series.
B – Best Sequel Ever. WHY! I can’t pick one, I just can’t. I LOVED the sequel to Six of Crows, Crooked Kingdom. Right from the start it had me hooked. I cried, I laughed and I thought I may die with the twist that occurs. Secondly it would be ACOMAF (A Court of Mist and Fury). I recently finished this and I haven’t posted my review yet but eeessssh sooo damn good, I need me a Rhysand 🙂
C- Currently Reading. I am currently reading 2 books. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell in paperback and Shadows Of The Forest by Emma Micheals on Kindle.
D – Drink of choice while reading. Tea…it has to be tea. I have one coffee a day while I write and draft blog posts or study but I always have tea when I read. It can be standard tea, lemon and ginger, peach and orange or my fav gingerbread tea.
E – E-Reader or Physical Book. Physical book always win for me. I love the feel and smell of a book in my hand however Kindle does offer a certain amount of practicability such as space saving and easier for travel reading, or if you are like me and have to spend an hour in a dark room while you wait for your toddler to go to sleep it works amazingly well.
F – Fictional character you would have dated in high-school. Kaz Brekker….I always went for the most unobtainable boys at school. Boys who would never really care for me the way I did for them and were quite cold. Most of them troublecausers..thankfully grown-up Emma has learnt her lesson 🙂
G – Glad you gave this book a chance. This would be Sands by Kevin Neilsen. I absolutely have fallen in love with this series and recommend it whenever I get the chance. On the outset it was not something I would have usually picked but I was asked to review it for Future House Publishing when I became and Alpha Reader.
H – Hidden gem. I think I need to reference the book mentioned again. It really is fantastic!
I – Important moment in your reading life. I have always loved books it was however the moment that I was approached By Future House Publishing that was my most important moment. It made me realise that I could actually make a full-time career ut of doing what I love most, reading books.
J- Just Finished. ACOMAF…I don’t want to say to much about this as I have a review and a half of this book planned but yes, wow..
K – Kinds of books you won’t read. I am afraid I just don’t really do historical books. I have read one book set in the Victorian era which was good but I generally won’t pick them up unless specifically asked to.
L – Longest book you’ve read. Beautiful Creatures I think would be the longest book I have read, it at least felt like the longest book even though I enjoyed it, it did take some getting through.
M – Major book hangover. Crooked Kingdom, I am still reeling over the ending of this. Poor Matthias.
N – Number of bookcases you own. Urm..I own 1 bookcase however every surface in my house is a shelf hehe 😀
O – One book you’ve read multiple times. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I read this every winter.
P – Preferred place to read. I like to be snuggled up with my foxy blanket and cup of tea in my fav chair in the main room next to the lamp during the winter and cold seasons. During summer I love to read at The Priory where I volunteer.
Q – Quotes that inspire you. I get inspired by many quotes I read in books however there are a few that have stuck with me.
”Life is a moment. There is no hereafter. So make it burn always with the hardest flame”. This is a quote by Oscar Wilde from Dorian Gray. I love this so much I have it tattooed down my arm.
”It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live”. This is a quote from Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter.
”To the stars that listened…and the dreams that answered”. This is from Feyre and Rhysand in A Court of Mist and Fury.
R – Reading regrets. I can honestly say I have not regretted any book I have read.
S – Series started and not yet finished. Welll… we could be here a while lol. Throne of Glass, Mrs Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Beautiful Creatures, Snow Like Ashes, Stealing Snow are the few I can think of but there are probably more.
T – Three of your all time favourite books. This really should say ten then it maybe easier. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Crooked Kingdom.
U – unapologetic fangirl for. Six of Crows Duology. I won’t apologise, not at all. These are my jam!
V – Very excited for this release. A Court of Wings and Ruin. I literally get goosebumps thinking about this coming in May.
W – Worst bookish habit. I am a spine cracker. When I read paperbacks I do tend to try to flatten them so they are easier to read, especially the thick ones. I know…I’m bad.
X – X Marks the spot: Start at the left and pick the 27th Book on your shelf. Deadpool Classic Volume 8…lol
Y – Your latest book purchase. I just bought Wintersong and The Girl of Ink and Stars
Z – Zzzz-snatcher (book that last kept you up late). ACOMAF..I blame Rhysand.
Thanks for reading and please if you also do a A-Z Book Survey let me know I would love to have a read.
