Destiny tagged me in this a few months ago and I’m fiiiinally following through. It was started over at The Perpetual Page-Turner.
a. Author you’ve read the most books from.
Lemony Snicket, I read the entire A Series of Unfortunate Event series, plus one or two others.
b. Best sequel ever.
Right now I have to say Squire by Tamora Pierce, I read it recently and looved it.
c. Currently reading.
Lost Children Archive and Dust.
d. Drink of choice while reading.
I usually don’t drink anything while reading at home, but a drip coffee or a vanilla latte if I’m at a coffee shop! Occasionally I’ll sip a cider or cocktail while reading if I’m out waiting for someone at dinner or a bar.
e. E-reader or physical book?
I really have to say both! I read so much more on the go because of ebooks, but I do tend to prefer physical books.
f. Fictional character you would’ve dated in high school.
Alex, the brother’s best friend, from Girl Made of Stars. He was so sweet and absolutely the kind of guy I would’ve dated in high school.
g. Glad you gave this book a chance.
Recency bias here, but Ordinary People! Like I said in my review, it’s not something I would have read on my own but I did end up enjoying it.
h. Hidden gem book.
I recently did an entire post on this!
i. Important moment in your reading life.
Honestly, starting The Pisces felt really important because I just knew right away that the book would be so, so meaningful to me.
j. Just finished.
I just finished Praise Song for the Butterflies, one of my Women’s Prize reads.
k. Kind of books you won’t read.
There’s not much I absolutely won’t read, but I typically avoid books about food, just because they don’t interest me much.
l. Longest book you’ve read.
According to Goodreads, it’s A Storm of Swords!
m. Major book hangover because of…
Umm, I don’t get book hangovers very often, so I don’t remember!
n. Number of bookcases you own.
Technically 1, but I have a couple more DIY ones set up, ha!
o. One book you’ve read multiple times.
Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce!
p. Preferred place to read.
Either propped up in my bed or on the couch! I wish I had a nice armchair to sit in, though.
q. Quote that inspires you/gave you all the feels from a book.
UGH, the Editor’s Note in I’ll Be Gone in the Dark that announces Michelle McNamara’s death tore through me.
r. Reading regret:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, always.
s. Series you’ve started and need to finish (all books are out).
Most pressing right now are the Themis Files and the Protector of the Small series.
t. Three of your all-time favorite books.
House of Leaves, Annihilation, and The Pisces.
u. Unapologetic fangirl for…
Tamora Pierce! ❤ u ❤
v. Very excited for this release.
The Exile’s Gift by Tamora Pierce. Ha, see above.
w. Worst bookish habits.
Returning library books late, having a TBR waaay too long, and stressing myself out about numbers and what I “should” be reading.
x. X marks the spot! Start at the top of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book.
The Artist’s Way! I still have never been all the way through this, oops.
y. Your latest book purchase.
A Field Guide for Science Writers, which I got when I thought I might want to be a science writer.
z. Zzz-snatcher, the last book that kept you up way too late.
Umm, I don’t remember! I don’t read much before bed anymore, specifically for this reason.
I tag anyone who wants to do this! I’m too sleepy to make a list. 🙂
