Jamie, from The Perpetual Page-Turner, does it again! She came up with a fun book survey and I’ve been wanting to take part in it ever since I came across it. So here I am.
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Best sequel ever:
Yes, I’m the queen of reading three books at a time but I’d be lucky if I don’t get the urge to pick a fourth one. Go me.
Drink of choice while reading:
E-reader or Physical book?
Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school:
Trevor from Pivot Point by Kasie West. He’s artsy, a little bit of a net, mysterious and just all around someone who I’d have loved to go out with.
Glad you gave this book a chance:
Hidden gem book:
Take Me There by Carolee Dean. I discovered it on a whim, decided to read it and fell in love with it.
Important moment in your reading life:
When I discovered Living Social: Books. It shut down back in 2011 which is why I had to join Goodreads (unwillingly) but it was so great to finally have a bookish platform.
Heist Society by Ally Carter. I’m glad I read this book; it’s good to be goal-oriented.
Kinds of books you won’t read:
Longest book you’ve read:
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. It was more than a 1000 pages long and I was fifteen when I read it.
Major book hangover because of:
Number of bookcases you own:
Bookcases? More like 2 shelves and each cannot hold more than 10 books. I never actually had a proper shelf (there’s this L-shaped huge bookcase that’s always been in the home but I got tired of it fast). But since I moved after doing my BSc I’ve been planning on getting one built. It is going to look beautiful. Oh yes.
Preferred place to read:
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
I’m going to go with a quote from Take Me There by Carolee Dean: “How far can you go down the wrong path before you can’t get back on the right one?” I had tears in my eyes when I read this line, it just broke my heart. Oh, Dylan… Needless to say, I love that book to pieces.
That I discovered the book blogging so late! But it happened when it was supposed to so I’m fine.
Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in series):
The Matched trilogy by Ally Condie. I’ve yet to read Reached and while, I liked Crossed a lot I’m not that excited for it which is weird.
Three of your all-time favorite books:
I can’t, I just can’t narrow it down to just three because I feel like I’m betraying the others. But oh well. Okay. Take Me There by Carolee Dean, Just One Day by Gayle Forman and Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon.
Unapologetic fangirl for:
Very excited for this release more than all the others:
Worst bookish habit:
X marks the spot. Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Your latest book purchase:
I bought six books last month: If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman, Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, Inferno by Dan Brown and Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis.
Zzz-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Just One Day by Gayle Forman. Sigh.
So, do I pass the a to z test? Let me know ha. Also, if you’ve participated in the survey, leave a link. If not, join in the fun!

Just One Year gahhh i'm dying here, i need the book!!!! If you were late in book blogging, then how about me? I just discovered it two months ago. I really do regret not getting into it earlier. And how exactly do you manage reading three books at a time?
I really need to read a Gayle Forman book, I haven't yet! I'm usually not into contemps, but I hear it gives people a lot of feels and I'm all about the feels. And oooh yes, I wish I found the book blogging world sooner! At least you've been doing this a couple years. I'll always be behind! 😛
Yes! Catching Fire was SUCH a great sequel. I said it was my favourite one too. And I keep seeing Gayle Forman at Chapters and all over the blogosphere but I've yet to read anything by her. I've been feeling too laden down with contemporaries lately, so I may have to read her after my fantasy binge.

Catching Fire was an amazing sequel! My favourite out of the entire series seriously. Also loved Just One Day too! I am so excited for Just One Year, got it preordered already 😀

I'm so glad you made on of these surveys!
Catching Fire was an amazing sequel, I agree.
Ohmigoodness, I love chai! When I said tea on my survey that's what I meant. XD
We have a lot of other answers in common. 🙂
Check out my survey!
I hope you are LOVING My Life Next Door Sana! ;D
And I need Just One Year too! I want to see what's going on in Willem's head! I want to kidnap him and shake him like crazy until he learns a thing or two. 😛
Yes and I really liked the way Catching Fire ended. Team Peeta all the way! 🙂 How is My Life Next Door? I've heard some great things about it (from Eve)
Haha, I agree, print books are the best, BUT try to separate me from my Kindle and I'll scream XD Orange beanbag? Sounds comfy. Btw, you really like the color orange right? I recently bought Cinder too! And I really enjoyed it 🙂
