A to Z Bookish Survey


Author you've read most books from
I've read 18 graphic novels from Robert Kirkman, but that is not actual books. So it will have to be Cathy Hopkins (13) or J.K. Rowling (10).

Best Sequel
Good question, possibly The Da Vinci Code from Dan Brown or Catching Fire.

Currently Reading?
Twilight (re-read) and Insurgent.

Drink of Choice While Reading?
Tea. Specifically strawberry tea.

E-Reader or Physical Book?
Both, I love reading on my iPad. But I also love reading actual books. So it's a tie.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School
Hmm, Augustus from The Fault in our Stars, Peeta from Hunger Gamesor Ian from The Host

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance
Hunger Games and Twilight. I hate reading books that are always center of attention. My book club chose to read Hunger Games last year and I promised I would read it. And I did. And I LOVED it.
The reason I read Twilight is, that I lost a bet to a friend. And if I lost, I HAD to read Twilight.

Under the covers in my bed.

Quote That Inspires You/Gives you All the Feel from a Book You've Read
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” 

“That's the thing about pain," Augustus said, and then glanced back at me. "It demands to be felt” 

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” 

“I'm in love with you," he said quietly.

"Augustus," I said.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.” 

“You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.” 

“The marks humans leave are too often scars.” 

“Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said.

"Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.” 
― John GreenThe Fault in Our Stars

The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff (well, I think I read half of it)...

Three of Your All-Time Favourite Books
