The A-Z Book Survey

26 August 2013

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This survey was created by Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Author you've read the most books from.
Hmmm....probably Enid Blyton! I think I read nearly ALL her books when i was younger, and that's a lot! Famous Five, Secret Seven, Malory Towers, St Clares, i read zem all!
Best sequel ever
Insurgent by Veronica Roth...DUR. or....THE CLOCKWORK PRINCE! (by Cassandra Clare for you people who hath not read the books..*evil glare*)
Currently Reading
 ...a lot of books. ;)
One Crow Alone by S D Crockett
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza
Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Amber by Julie Sykes
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner...
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen..FOR THE 3RD TIME. *dies*
Drink of choice while reading
Anything. Everything? I really don't mind! But i love to drink tea and read...makes me feel so British..;)
E-reader or Physical Books
PHYSICAL BOOKS FTW. *dances around* And that's not just because i don't have an e-reader...;p I love the feel of a book in my hands, i love the crisp new pages, the shiny covers and the smell of 'em too..;)
Glad you gave this book a chance:
Divergent by Veronica Roth. Yes. I said it. I didn't actually think i would enjoy it at first. It was just at the beginning of my blogging ''career'' when i heard about it and i hadn't read many dystopians before that - and the cover i'd seen on it at the library wasn't appealing (yes, i sometimes judge books by their covers..sshhh..) so i was hesitant to pick it up, but i gave in to the hype and did..and LOVED IT. obviously.
Hidden Gem Book
Between The Lines By Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer. The Illustrations guys, the illustrations! *swoons*.
Important Moment in your reading life:
Starting this blog. Talking to authors who's books I LOVED...i can name a few things. ;)
Just finished:
Last Chance Angel by Alex Gutteridge and Roller Girls: Falling Hard by Megan Sparks. I loved them by the way. And i really want to start Roller Derby now..what do you think my name should be?..
Kinds of books you won't read
*cough* Erotica, need i say why?..Vampire books i will very rarely read as well.
Longest Book You've Read:
I do't know...i read pretty long books. Probably one of the Harry Potter books although once i've read The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon i think that'll blow all the other books out of the water! 
Major Book Hangover because of:
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. (GUS!) and...isn't it REALLY OBVIOUS. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare...*flails*
Number of Bookcases You Own:
One. But i also have piles of books under my bed, in my cupboard and i have a few shelves under my mirror. I NEED MORE BOOK SHELVES.
One Book You Have read Multiple Times:
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. The writing people. The writing is stunning. I want to write like her...
Preferred Place to Read:
Anywhere, if i'm reading i'm not really in that place am I, i'm within the book. But, i do like to curl up in bed in my pyjamas with a good book...and some food. You can't forget the food. ;)
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you've read:
“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.” 
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
Reading Regret
Reading The Harry Potter Series...i HATED THEM...
jokes.
Probably...being pretty picky before i started blogging over the genre's i like. I mean, the only dystopian i read before then was The Hunger Games.. O___O
Series you started and Need to finish (all the books are out in the series):
The Delirium Series. I still haven't read the last one because i got scared off from all the negative reviews I heard...
Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale, Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys and Divergent by Veronica Roth.
Series? (i know this isn't part of the question but IT IS NOW.)
The Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare, The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins and The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth: i know the last one isn't out yet BUT IT WILL BE AWESOME. Same goes to The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and the Geek Girl series by Holly Smale.
Unapologetic Fangirl for:
FOOD. Oh a book? My bad. The Elites by Natasha Ngan.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
ALLEGIANT AND NOT A DROP TO DRINK AND GEEK GIRL: MODEL MISFITS AND RESIST AND CRESS AND THE NEXT BOOK RUTA SEPETYS WRITES. ok?
Worst Bookish Habit:
Not reviewing a book straight after i've read it. And bugging people who are reading a book i've read and loved.
Me: What page are you on?
Me: What's just happened?
Me: What page are you on now?
Me: OMG HAVE YOU GOT TO THE BIT WHERE-
Me: You've only read six pages in the last 15 minutes....
Them: -_-
..you get my drift....;)
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Witchfall by Victoria Lamb.
Your Latest Book Purchase:
Butter by Erin Jade Lange, The Diviners by Libba Bray, Partials by Dan Wells and Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger.
ZZZ-snatched book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein.

  4. ALLEGIANT. OMG. I AM SO EXCITED FOR ALLEGIANT I CANNOT EVEN.

    Unrelated: The longest book I ever tried to read was War & Peace. Don't do that. There's so much hype but I was convinced I could do it and I was all, "PFFFFT I WILL MAKE EASY WORK OF THIS NOVEL, THE ONE THAT IS BIGGER THAT MY BIGGEST DICTIONARY" and now it's been two years and I'm 40 pages in and when will it enddddd.

    PS. I love your blog!

  5. Your answers always make me laugh! I loved the thing about fangirling for FOOD and your 'annoying reading habits' XD XD

    But seriously. I almost threw my laptop out the window at that HP thing. DON'T SCARE ME LIKE THAT HAWWA.

    You're reading Code Name Verity? You are? (I mean, you'll have finished it by now ... DID YOU NOT FLAIL?!) Also, P&P! But why the third time? Are you *dying* cause you love it so much and you're rereading it AGAIN, or is it some Scary Other Reason ... ~worriedly nibbles lip~ ? Because I LOVE that book ...

    Also ... Rose Under Fire you say? I didn't know Elizabeth Wein had more than one novel! TO THE TBR LIST!!!!!! ~superhero music~

    2. I'M HERE I'M HERE DON'T PANIC! (although MAY I POINT OUT that I did comment on Doorstep Delights #2 and #3 (the first number 3, because you now have two posts titled 'doorstep delights #3') and received NO REPLY, but that may be because I posted them so long after you posted those posts .... too many repeats of the word 'post'. Hmm.)

      OK OK I WON'T BUT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS THEY HATE HARRY POTTER BAD THINGS HAPPEN AND THAT IS A FACT.

      OH NOOOO!!!!! UNSLUMP YOURSELF! I would recommend something AWESOME to get you going again like, hey, I don't know, CODE NAME VERITY.

      OH NO!!! But at least you liked it the first time ... ~muffled sobs~

      OK OK I WILL DON'T PANIC, WHEN I SAY I WILL I MEAN IN LIKE A WEEK BECAUSE I HAVE SO MANY POSTS TO READ BUT I WILL AAARRGGGHHH WHY DO WE TALK IN CAP LOCKS SO MUCH IT MYSTIFIES ME

      Glad to! Thanks for your comment on my own Bloggly Blogster :) x
