Hey nerds! It’s good to be back to writing on this blog again! So I’ve decided to do this bookish survey that was created by The Perpetual Page-Turner because it looks totally fun and it will help me realize my progress in reading books.
Basically, there will be prompts that start from the letters A-Z and you just answer them as honestly as you can. Also, if you want to purchase the books listed below for free worldwide shipping, just click the titles.
Author you’ve read the most books from:
So this was what my Goodreads showed me:
**Go to your account, hit “my books” and on the left-hand side under your shelves, you will see “most read authors.
Best Sequel Ever:
Well, I’m on page 3 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I might go through this book for quite a while because it is a huuuuge book and I still have a lot of homework from my Masters class to finish.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Hot chocolate or coffee! Nothing tastes better than a sweet warm drink while reading on a rainy day. Well, the rain is optional.
E–reader or Physical Book?
Definitely physical book because I like to annotate a lot and it’s hard for me to look for marked pages on Kindle or iBooks. I read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on e-book before but it became one of my favorite books after I reread it as a physical copy and after annotating through it.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Of course, it’s gonna be Nikolai from the Grisha Trilogy because everyone needs a Nikolai Lantsov in their lives. He’s hilarious, sarcastic, and absolutely dashing.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
The Grisha Trilogy. I was hesitant to start this series because a lot of people said I don’t need to read this before Six of Crows duology but I want to have the full experience of Leigh Bardugo’s writing so I jumped in and boy oh boy I did not regret because Nikolai Lantsov is the best thing that I’ve read in that series.
Hidden Gem Book:
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Discovering the meaningfulness of annotating books. I never annotated my books before but I read the essay How to Mark a Book by Mortimer J. Adler, Ph.D. and it really changed my life. You should read it, too, and be enlightened.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I’ve read smut in fanfiction before and the smut there is kinda appropriate for the storylines but I don’t think I’ll be reading erotica and adult romance like ever. I also won’t be reading New Age and horror genres.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas (705 pages)
** easy way to find this out. Go to your Goodreads “read” list, don’t scroll down but where you are on the screen there will be this little tab on the bottom that lets you choose how you want to scroll or how many books you want to be displayed. There is also a sort option with a drop down and you can sort by page.
Major book hangover because of:
Number of Bookcases You Own:
One small bookcase. I live in Thailand temporarily for a few years. Once I settle down, I’m gonna have my own library with tons of books.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Preferred Place To Read:
On my work table (if I read in bed, I’d be tempted to sleep) or in a cafe.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“I would have come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.” – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I regret watching the Harry Potter movies before the books because the writing in the books is exquisite and after having watched the films, I know everything that happened but the books are different and there are some things they changed in the movies. But I would’ve loved to cry during character deaths and genuinely surprised with the plot twists in the books first.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
The Harry Potter series. I’m starting the fifth book and I honestly can’t wait to go through with the rest because it’s an entirely different experience from the movies I’ve watched countless times.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
MY HARRY POTTER OTPS WHICH ARE DRAMIONE (Draco and Hermione) AND KRUMIONE (Krum and Hermione) LIKE SERIOUSLY ANY OF THE TWO OF THEM AS LONG AS IT’S NOT RON.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo WHICH WILL BE A DUOLOGY ABOUT NIKOLAI AND I KNOW THAT I NEED IT 2019 IS STILL SO FAR AWAY I CRY. If you want to see the trailer click here.
Worst Bookish Habit:
Some of you will think it’s a really bad habit but for me, I find nothing wrong with it but I’m gonna state it here anyway: writing on books. I love filling up the margins with my thoughts and reactions.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Your latest book purchase:
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows and the first three books of The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
I believe it’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire because that book is just too good to put down.
