A to Z bookish survey

Graphic design by The Perpetual Page Turner

Hello all and happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. I saw this meme floating around over the weekend but I was just too busy to actually get around to posting it, so here we are. The A to Z bookish survey is a meme created by The Perpetual Page Turner. So, back in my Myspace days I loved doing surveys and this meme is basically a survey all about my bookish interests. So, are you ready to jump into this? I am, let’s gooooo!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

I think I will have to go with R.L. Stine on this one. When I was a kid I was obsessed with Goosebumps books!

Best Sequel Ever

So, recently, there have been two sequels that I have liked more than the first books (and, coincidentally, they are both trilogies). They are:

Currently reading

I’m doing a buddy read of Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I just received my hold from the library for Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton (I’m almost positive that I won’t be able to renew my checkout of this one, so I need to finish it for sure!) and I’m listening to Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire on audiobook.

Drink of choice

I actually don’t have a drink of choice while I’m reading. It’s just whatever I’m drinking at the time that I sit down to read. Mostly just plain old water but sometimes coffee, sometimes a La Croix.

E-reader or physical book

I, honestly, love both but for different reasons. I love e-books because they’re easily accessible you can carry literally hundreds around with you and only have the weight of your device.

I also love physical books because they are just so nice to look at. Lol Also, when I feel like I’ve been staring at a screen all day it tends to make my eyes hurt and I like to pick up a physical copy of a book then.

Fictional character you probably would of dated in high school

Uh, this one is kind of tough for me because I feel like I don’t really read books with characters I would want to date. 🤷‍♀️ I think the best answer for this would be Kalil from The Hate U Give. The way Starr describes him and how sweet he is to her are just so adorable!

Glad you gave this book a chance

I think I will have to go with the Wayward Children series on this one. I had heard such raving reviews about this series and I’m so glad that I chose to pick it up as well. It is one of my favorite series.

Hidden Gem

Hmmm, I honestly can’t think of anything. I think I tend to stick to the hyped books and not the obscure ones. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Important moment in your reading life

Finding Goodreads. Goodreads got me out of a decades long reading slump.

Just finished

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

Kinds of books you won’t read

Well, I don’t want to shut myself completely off from any genre because if it sounds interesting then I’ll give it a shot. On the other hand, there are some genres that usually don’t interest me at all so I just don’t pick them up. Those include, historical fiction and non-fiction, memoirs (especially by celebrities) and most nonfiction.

Longest book you’ve read

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King, 721 pages

Major book hangover because of

Oh my gosh! Lol I have a book hangover over pretty much any book that I give a five star rating to. The most recent one, however, is my last one finished as well. We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson. I’m trying to start new books but it’s now been a week and I’m still thinking about that book.

Number of bookcases you own

One sole, lonely bookshelf for me. I just started buying books again. So, for now, I only need one and it’s likely to stay that way because I don’t really have any room in my house for more right now.

One book you have read multiple times

Oof. I’m kind of a one and done kind of girl (same with movies). There’s just so many to get to and I don’t have time to spend on rereading but I do own some books that I plan to reread, I just haven’t yet.

Preferred place to read

A big , fluffy comfy chair or on my couch that sits right in front of my picture window in my living room.

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

And the scary thing I have noticed is that some people really feel uncomfortable around women who don’t hate themselves. So that’s why you need to be a little bit brave. — Mindy Kaling, “Why Not Me?”

Yasss, Mindy!👏👏 Preach!

Reading regret

#NoRagrets lol Just kidding I regret ever reading a John Green novel. Sorry, not sorry. 😬

Series you’ve started and need to finish

The Razorland Series. I actually loved the first two book in this series and plan to start on the next book after I finish my current reads.

Three of your all-time favorite books

How Not to Die by Micheal Greger, M.D.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

How Not to Die by Micheal Greger, M.D.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

Unapologetic fangirl for

The Sookie Stackhouse series. I just love everything about it.

Very excited for this release more than all the others

Finale by Stephanie Garber

Finale by Stephanie Garber. I am dying to get my hands on this book and finish out the trilogy (even though I’m so, so sad that it is ending😭).

Worst bookish habit

Oh gosh! lol I feel like I have several but maybe I’ll make a separate post about it🤣 Don’t kill me, but, I looove to crack the spines on hardcovers and paperbacks alike. Although, you can’t see it on the hardcovers which is a plus to those, I still love to do it to paperbacks as well. I don’t know, there’s just something so satisfying about it.

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

The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry

The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry I haven’t read this one yet but I want to get to it right after I finish all of the library books that I currently have checked out.

Your latest book purchase

I just made a ThriftBooks purchase. I purchased five books in that order. They were:

A Million Junes by Emily Henry
A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein 
9 days & 9 Nights by Katie Cotugno
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

A Million Junes by Emily Henry
A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
9 Days and 9 Nights by Katie Cotugno
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)



Ok, I’ll be honest here, when I’m tired I’m out like a light. I literally can not keep my eyes open. Oh, especially if I’m already laying in bed and the lights are off (trying to read an ebook). Yeah, it ain’t happenin’ my friends😂😂

Alright, friends! That’s all from me today. I hope you all have a great day! Talk to you later!
