A to Z Survey 2013

2013, Newsletter


I’m so happy to finally be able to share my survey with you guys! Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-Turner came up with this very fun survey and I immediately knew I wanted to complete one of my own. Thanks for letting us join in the fun, Jamie!!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Kelley Armstrong – 23 books.
Between her Otherworld series and the Darkest Powers series, she has everyone beat. And since I plan to continue reading her books, she will most likely stay at the top.

Honorable mention to Richelle Mead with 21 of her books read. :)

Best Sequel Ever:

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Currently Reading:

I Only Have Eyes For You by Andre, Bella, because I’m obsessed with this series right now and The Lady of the Rivers by Gregory, Philippa, because I wanted to read the books before watching the tv show (The White Queen, STARZ)

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Coffee, duh.

E-reader or Physical Book?

Physical, except when E-reader. ;)

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Alex Fuentes from Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles is probably the closest match to the guys I dated in high school so we’ll go with that.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – I had read no reviews on this, knew nothing about it, but Amazon suggested it to me and I said “What the heck. Why not?” One of my all-time favorites now.

Hidden Gem Book:

You Against Me by Jenny Downham – My contemporary YA loving friends would LOVE this one!

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Discovering Goodreads. Life changing!

Just Finished:

Can’t Help Falling in Love (The Sullivans #3) by Bella Andre

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

I won’t read most non-fiction books. I like some memoirs or biographies, but that’s it.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander #6) by Diana Gabaldon at 980 pages.

Major book hangover because of:

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – Holy smokes, this book! Read it now, you guys.

Number of Bookcases You Own:

5 in the living room and 3 in my bedroom. :) I’m a book collector, ok!

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Succubus Blues series by Richelle Mead – 3 times.

Preferred Place To Read:

Bed or Couch

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

Reading Regret:

I regret not reading more in my teenage years and early 20s. I seriously stopped at 12 and picked it back up at 28. lol I’ve missed out on a lot of awesomeness and probably some life lessons.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):

SO MANY! I have a Goodreads shelf for Series I Need To Finish.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

This Lullaby, Looking for Alaska, The Sky is Everywhere

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Richelle Mead – I LOVE HER, OK!

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

Just One Year (Just One Day #2) by Gayle Forman

Worst Bookish Habit:

Book Hoarding :-| I have more unread books than read ones at my house.

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

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins

Your latest book purchase:

Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez – Thanks, Kindle Daily Deals!

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

  1. Ginger @ GReads!

    I did not realize Looking for Alaska was an all-time favorite for you. The other two books I definitely knew! lol I keep meaning to read these Belle Andre books. Maybe it should be my next adult series to start? As for your Very Excited For This Release Book.. I’m sending you a text now ;)

      Yeah, that was my first ever John Green book and my second ever contemporary YA novel, after The Truth About Forever, so it holds a special place in my heart. And about your text? I LOVE YOUUUUUU! :)

    I could not agree more about Where She Went being the best sequel! That series was rare for me because I loved the sequel even more than I did the first book.That Gayle Forman is a genius :)

      And we won’t give them up either. :D And also keep buying more, lol. *sigh* Oh, well.

      Austenland was SO fun! I think you’ll really like it. :) AND! The movie is out in a lot of places now! :D Can’t wait to watch it.

    I started filling this survey out a few weeks ago.. but now I’ve done read 3 or 4 more books since then so all my answers are wrong. :/ Maybe I will refill it out. I love surveys, but I love being lazy too, and laziness always wins out.

    Heck Yeah to the letter Y! I just bought Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry. It’s $1.99 right now. Zombies for the win! :)
