This tag was created by Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner. It’s a lovely blog that y’all should definitely check out.
Now, I’m always looking for an interesting book tag, because I personally think they’re tons of fun! When I stumbled across this one, I was positively enchanted. So, without further ado, the A-Z book tag!
Author you’ve read the most books from
I’ve never gotten into a really long series of books (and stuck with it), so I think the answer to this question is David Levithan, at six books.
Best Sequel Ever
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness, #3 in the Chaos Walking Trilogy. I really liked The Ask and the Answer (#2), but Monsters of Men blew me away.
Paradise by Toni Morrison.
Drink of choice while reading
Coffee, definitely. I drink coffee while I write, and I drink coffee while I read. My newest tactic to get out of my latest slump is to keep reading until I run out of coffee. So far, so good.
E-reader or physical book
Physical book. I understand the appeal of an e-reader, sure, but I’m an extremely tactile person and having the physical book where I can physically turn the pages actually really helps me focus.
Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school
Jacob from North of Beautiful. I don’t necessarily have a type, but he just tickles me. That said, my biggest fictional high school crush was (and still is) Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clones Wars. If I have a type, she’s it.
Glad you gave this book a chance
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
Hidden gem book
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh.
Important moment in your reading life
Reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It’s the book that really inspired me to write.
I’ve been in a slump for a few months, but the last book I read was The Gunslinger by Stephen King.
Kinds of books you won’t read
Erotica and like hard romance. It’s just not for me.
Longest book you’ve read
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling, 784 pages.
Major book hangover because of
The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness.
Number of bookcases you own
One. It’s not big enough.
One book you have read multiple times
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. It’s not necessarily a good book, but it’s extremely imaginative and I love it.
Preferred place to read
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read
“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”
– Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
I regret never finishing the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I read The Lightning Thief years ago and absolutely loved it, but I just never got around to reading the rest of them.
Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in the series)
Three of your all-time favorite books
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
Unapologetic fangirl for
Toni Morrison, light of my life.
Very excited for this release more than all the others
I don’t currently have a book release I’m extremely excited for. I’m somewhat excited for Patrick Ness’ new book, Release. Honestly, the thing I’m most excited for right now is Mass Effect: Andromeda. I’m a gamer, you see, and a total slut for everything BioWare.
Worst bookish habit
Starting books and not finishing them. I got a third of the way through Kindred by Octavia Butler and just … stopped. Can’t tell you why. I was really enjoying the book.
X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book
Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn.
Your latest book purchase
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
