Bookish A to Z Survey


I found this from The Perpetual Page Turner, and decided to give it a shot!

A – Author you’ve read the most books from: The author I have without a doubt read the most books from is Danielle Steel. From when I was secondary school age, I was searching for more books to read, and found my mum’s small selection of Danielle Steel books. After I read a few, I ended up extending my collection, and now have a large bookcase full of her books.

B – Best sequel ever: The best sequel that comes to mind is the Hunger Games trilogy. These books far outweigh the films! They carry much more emotion and power behind each book, and you are able to get a real feel for the characters throughout.

C – Currently reading: Matters of the Heart by Danielle Steel.

D – Drink of choice while reading: Always a cuppa tea! If I am feeling adventurous and am reading in the bath, I occasionally treat myself to a bucks fizz.

E – E-reader or physical book: Physical book all the way! I enjoy seeing how far I am going through the book. At the end of the day, an author creates a masterpiece with each writing they produce, by holding that masterpiece in your hand, it just makes the whole experience more special.

F – Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in secondary school: Mr Darcy – Who could say no?!

G – Glad you gave this book a chance: The Letter by Kathryn Hughes – An absolutely brilliant book!

H – Hidden gem book: I couldn’t say one book, but I do believe the Disney Twisted Tales are hidden gems. For books that give another view or alternative to the much loved Disney Tales, these books have been totally hidden and under appreciated. I don’t believe many individuals know these books exist.

I – Important moment in your reading life: Probably when I stayed up all night reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

J – Just finished: Stardust by Neil Gaiman

K – Kind of books you won’t read: I haven’t been a fan of reading fantasy or sci-fiction.

L – Longest book you’ve read: The Kings Curse by Philippa Gregory

M – Major book hangover because of: Widows by Lynda La Plante – This book was written so well, I was hooked from the beginning, but it left so many questions towards the end. No book I picked up after this one, was good enough to read.

N – Number of bookcases you own: 3

O – One book you have read multiple times: Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks

P – Preferred place to read: In my arm chair in my partner’s man cave or on the sofa

Q – Quote that inspired you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: Towanda from Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg.

R – Reading regret: Straight on to morning by Elizabeth J Braswell – I couldn’t finish this book, was too twisted and dark for Peter Pan.

S – Series you started and need to finish: His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.

T – Three of your all time favourite books: P.S I Love You by Ceceila Ahern, Widows by Lynda La Plante, As Old As Time by Liz Braswell.

U – Unapologetic fangirl for: Robert Dugoni – I may have fangirled over Twitter aha!

V – Very excited for this release more than all the others: At the moment, there isn’t a book that I am looking forward to most.

W – Worst bookish habit: My worst habit was turning down the corner of the page when I put it down. I have recently been converted to using lovely bookmarks by my partner.

X – X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book: The Classical Fairy Tales by Iona and Peter Opie.

Y – Your latest book purchase: Eragon by Christopher Paolini.

Z – ZZZ snatcher book (last book that kept you up way too late): Matters of the Heart by Danielle Steel.
