My friend, Christine, tagged me in this post, and it sounded like a lot of fun. So I’m going to answer some questions about books for you!
Author You’ve Read the Most Books From
I’m not sure, actually… I’d say Stephen King or Shakespeare, if you count plays.
Best Sequel Ever
Without going ahead and saying every Harry Potter book, I’ll go with the sequels to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – those were great. I also think Catching Fire was a lot better than the first Hunger Games book.
Trainspotting – Irvine Welsh
The 4 AM Breakthrough – Brian Keteley
Thinner – Stephen King
Check out my Goodreads!
Drink of Choice While Reading
I don’t like to drink, in case I spill things. But yeah, I’m a coffee person for sure.
E-Reader or Physical Book?
Physical book! I love the feeling of the pages, and being able to visually see how much I’ve read of a book. Plus, I like building my own library
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School
I’m going to be totally typical here and say Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars. But if I’m talking about non-YA fiction, probably Dream from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.
Glad You Gave This Book a Chance
Beautiful Music for Ugly Children - Kristin Cronn-Mills
Hidden Gem Book
Blind Faith – Ben Elton
Important Moment in your Reading Life
The moment I picked up Harry Potter.
The moment I started reading plays.
The moment I decided to stop forcing myself through books I don’t really want to read.
The moment I met Rainbow Rowell.
Sandman vol. 10 – Neil Gaiman
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read
I’m not really interested in classic literature. That sounds bad, and I’m sure I’ll find a few that I really enjoy, but things like Jane Austen or the Brontes kind of turn me off, style-wise. I also likely won’t read things like James Joyce simply because of length.
Longest Book You’ve Read
House of Leaves – Mark Z. Danielewski
Major Book Hangover Because of
If by “book hangover” you mean like, staying up so late reading that I ruined the next day: Sara Gran’s Come Closer. If you mean emotionally hungover and not really wanting to read again as I took in what I just read… The Fault in Our Stars.
Number of Bookcases You Own
Two giant ones, and they’ve got double layers that I need to fix so I can actually see every book’s spine, lol!
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times
I’ve read the Complete Plays of Sarah Kane a million times, and I’d read it again and again. Such amazing work.
Preferred Place to Read
I read anywhere. I love reading in my bed, but I’m a body constantly on the move, so I’ll read anywhere (as long as I’m not literally on the move – I get motion sick reading in the car/bus).
Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels From a Book You’ve Read
“Always.” -Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I regret spending $20 on This Star Won’t Go Out. I also regret reading that whole book.
Series You Started and Need to Finish (All books are out in series)
I need to finish Twilight (I saw the final movie and am hoping that the book is more graphic and less lame). I also need to read the last book of Hitchhiker’s, and start/finish Lord of the Rings.
Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books
- Paper Towns – John Green
- Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell
- The Long Walk – Stephen King
Un-apologetic Fangirl For
Everything Harry Potter. Or Shakespeare. Or John Green.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others
I don’t get super excited about new book releases, to be honest. I have enough books on my own shelf that I need to read. Anything that I like, I’ll get eventually. It’s not a big priority for me to get the new books and read them right away.
Worst Bookish Habit
I tend to read a chapter of a book and if it doesn’t hook me right away, I put the book away for a while, and I tend to not pick it up. Worst habit: I don’t give it enough time to sink in.
X Marks the Spot: Start at The Top of Your Shelf and Pick the 27th Book
I have two shelves so:
- Every Day – David Levithan
- Macbeth – William Shakespeare
Zzz Snatcher Book (Last Book That Kept You Up WAY Late)
(You’re missing a “Y” option, survey). The last thing that kept me up really late reading was probably Crank – Ellen Hopkins.
