Bookish A-Z Survey Tag

Bookish A-Z.pngI was recently tagged by the lovely Siobhan to do this tag! I truly suck at keeping up with tags so if you’ve tagged me in one I promise I’ll get to it (eventually!). Let’s get to it!

A- Author you’ve read the most books from

Definitely Cassandra Clare. Having read all the Shadowhunter books along with The Iron Trial, it comes down to a total of 12 books! As long as she keeps putting out books, I’ll be there to buy them.

B- Best sequel ever

Hands down Lord of Shadows, can I please just have Queen of Air and Darkness in my hands already??

C- Currently reading

I’m currently in the middle of The Cruel Prince, I’m only 100 pages away from the end and I’m feeling so many emotions!!

D- Drink of choice while reading

I can’t multitask to save my life so I don’t drink anything whilst reading. But if I had to choose I’d pick hot chocolate over anything any day, it’s the superior and very underrated warm beverage.

E- E-reader or physical book

I love physical copies, they’re beautiful to look at and I adore the feeling of flipping through the pages. However, e-readers are so much more convenient and I can read them sprawled out in my bed in any weird position. So both!

G- Glad you gave this book a chance

I almost passed on Dangerous Girls because YA thrillers aren’t my thing but when I saw my favourite Goodreads reviewer gave it 5 stars I decided to give it a try. Thank god for that.

H- Hidden gem book

I have a whole post about 10 Amazing Underrated Books, but to name one from my list: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. READ IT.

I- Important moment in your reading life

Reading Percy Jackson. That series seriously cemented my love for reading when I was growing up. The way most people feel about Harry Potter and J.K Rowling, I feel towards Percy Jackson and Rick Riordan.

J- Just finished

I just recently finished reading Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I’m amazed I actually managed to finish it considering how many times I thought about ending my suffering by just DNFing it. Needless to say a review is coming soon 😉

K- Kinds of books I won’t read

Any adult crime, mystery, or thriller fiction. Just not my cup of tea hot chocolate.

L- Longest book you’ve read

Outlander. I really dislike long books so I’m surprised I even gave this a shot but I am so glad I did because it was 850 pages of pure beauty. I just have to get up the nerve to read the second book already but it’s so long.

M- Major book hangover because of

See above.

N- Number of bookcases you own

Just one, my room can’t fit another one in so it means I regularly have to take down and give away books to make room for new ones. Which is both sad and really helpful!

O- One book you have read multiple times

I am not the type to ever re-read books but this summer I re-read Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S- I Still Love You and The Summer I Turned Pretty. And it was a grand time.

P- Preferred place to read

My bed. Nothing can beat it’s comfort; n.o.t.h.i.n.g.

Q- Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you have read

To quote a recent read of mine, The Hate U Give: “At an early age I learned that people make mistakes, and you have to decide if their mistakes are bigger than your love for them

R- Reading regret

Taking a 2 year reading hiatus and never having read Harry Potter beyond the first book.

S- Series you started and need to finish

Too many my god: The Winner’s Curse, Six of Crows, Wayward Children, The Trials of Apollo, Penryn & the End of Days, and Grisha Verse.

T- Three of your all-time favourite books

How is this allowed to be a question? Since I can’t choose I’ll pick my favourite three of the year so far: Everything I Never Told You, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Winter.

U- Unapologetic fangirl for

YA. Seriously, people like to be such snobs about reading sometimes. Since I major in English literature where we study classics and very obscure books, I noticed people love to look down on books that are easy to read. Not reading YA doesn’t make you any worse or any better that people who do. Period.

V- Very excited for this release more than all the others

Once I get Queen of Air and Darkness in my hands you’ll know, because you’ll able to hear me screaming all the way from London.

W- Worst Bookish habit

Using receipts as bookmarks?

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

Heartless. I’ve yet to read that one!

Y- Your latest book purchase

I just got My Plain Jane yesterday and I’m so excited about it! I haven’t yet read My Lady Jane but I already know I’ll love it so I thought I’d go ahead and buy the companion sequel too.

Z- ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up way too late)

The Cruel Prince kept me up until 4am last night and will probably do the same tonight since I plan on finishing it today.

    Thanks so much for the tag, Mara!! I can’t wait to do this one😊 All the love for Shadowhunters in this post makes me so happy! Also I feel the same way about Percy Jackson; even though Harry Potter is very close to my heart, I actually read and fell in love with PJO first, so it’s extra special in some ways. It definitely had a huge impact on my reading life❤️

    i have much to say so prepare
    – LoS was a work of art and i will accept no other answer
    – dangerous girls ruined my life in the best way possible, the ending STILL HAS ME SHOOK
    – im WAITING for that obsidian roast, i binge read the series some years ago and i enjoyed it then but trying to read it now is so painfully cringe im soRRY TO ANY JLA STANS
    – beds are such underrated reading places like yes i want a fancy reading corner but until i become fancy, staying in bed all day reading works for me
    – my lady jane was SUCH A FUNNY BOOK i hope you love it

    okay this is a lot and im going to stop now but i love your answers and im so excited to be doing it too ❤

    I so agree with you about adult crime/thrillers. I can easily watch crime drama’s but I cannot get into reading them. It’s just not for me. Now, I see The Winner’s Trilogy is still on the need to finish list and I urge you to do because the feels are brutal but all the pain will be worth it in the end. Same with Crooked Kingdom haha.
