Tag | The A-Z Book Survey

I saw the A-Z of books tag going around Booktube a while ago and became a little bit obsessed with watching it. I only recently discovered that the tag is actually a survey created by Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner, whose blog I absolutely love, which made me want to do this even more.

Author You've Read The Most Books From:
Louise Rennison - All 10 of the Confessions Of Georgia Nicholson books.

Best Sequel Ever:

Currently Reading:
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Drink Of Choice While Reading:
Irn-Bru - I'm so Scottish!

E-reader of Physical Book?:
I really love them both but I would probably have to say physical.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Dated In High School:
Josh from Isla And The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - he actually remind me of my high school boyfriend.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I didn't love If I Stay and a lot of people didn't like Where She Went as much but I gave it a chance and ended up loving it.

Hidden Gem Book:
Ignite by Lily Paradis - one of my all time favourite books that no-one seems to know about.

Important Moment Of Your Reading Life:
Discovering book blogs and booktube - they made me rediscover my love of reading.

Just Finished:
PS I Like You by Kasie West

Kinds Of Books You Won't Read:
I wouldn't completely rule out anything but I don't love high fantasy or super confusing sci-fi.

Longest Book You've Read:
Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix by JK Rowling at 870 pages.

Major Book Hangover Because Of:
Isla And The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - this is just a guess, I honestly don't remember.

Number Of Bookcases You Own:
Three - two are full and one is room for growth. I have another small one for uni textbooks as well.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer - it's my guilty pleasure.

Preferred Place To Read:
On the sofa in front of my two bookcases. Or by the pool in some hot, sunny place but that doesn't happen too often.

Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels:
I'm not really a quote person but the one 'quote' from a book that really inspires me isn't even a book quote, it's one of the state mottos mentioned in Amy & Rodger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - the Kansas state motto "to the stars through adversity". There are lots of quotes in books that inspire me, I just don't make a note of them like a lot of other people do.

Reading Regret: 
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult - I regret that I spent so much time trying to get through this when I should have just DNFed.

Series You Started And Need To Finish (all the books are out):
Way too may, I've just done a post on it! If I had to choose one, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

Three Of You're All Time Favourite Books:
3. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (the nostalgia!)

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Isla? Cecelia Ahern? I don't know.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All Others:
Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

Worst Bookish Habit:
Buying books that end up sitting on my shelf for years before I finally pick them up.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

Your Latest Book Purchase:
The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon & A Quiet Kind Of Thunder by Sara Barnard

ZZZ-Snatcher Book (the last book that kept you up WAY late):
I can't really remember but I think it was What Light by Jay Asher.

This was actually a lot of fun to do, I love these kinds of surveys/tags. Consider yourself tagged if you haven't done this yet.

  1. What a fun tag! Catching Fire is an amazing sequel!! <3 I've also read Twilight a gazillion times. It's been awhile though. Maybe I'm due for a reread. :)

    1. Catching Fire and Twilight were both books that as soon as I thought of them in answer to the questions I wanted to reread them. If only I had the time to reread all my favourites and get to the shiny new books!
