A-Z Bookish Tag

I saw Kristen Kraves Books do this tag, and thought it looked fun so I gave it a go for myself. Go check out her blog if you haven’t!!

A. Author you’ve read the most books from

I believe it is Rick Riordan with 14 books of his read. I love Percy and all his 5 trillion friends and adventures.

B. Best sequel ever

keep-calm-danny-d-happy-birthday-party-on

I’m sorry but I love this book so much.

C. Currently reading

7171771.jpg

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancy. It is about a doctor who studies monsters with his 12-year-old apprentice and it’s so poignant and horrifying so far, I’m loving it.

D. Drink of choice

Hot black tea! While reading or not.

E. E-reader or physical book

I prefer physical, but I do like using my Kindle.

F. Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school.

I didn’t date anyone in high school because I was way too shy. And honestly I just really don’t know.

G. Glad you gave this book a chance

11235712

The Lunar Chronicles. I know I’ve said it before, but I had no desire to read these until I suddenly did, and then I was thrown headfirst into obsession. It’s one of my favorite series.

H. Hidden gem

35388948

A Fugitive in Grass Valley by I.M. Flippy. This book is pleasant and sweet with a touch of angst. The characters are so wonderful and it’s FUNNY.

I. Important moment in your reading life

Recently I got a library card and it felt very important and exciting. FREE BOOKS. I’m especially excited for all the audiobooks now available to me. And for no real reason I’ve recently lost my desire to buy books, so it’s convenient to satisfy my desire to read books but not necessarily own them.

J. Just finished

2294528

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones! LOVED IT. It was such a fun read.

K. Kind of book you won’t read

Erotica.

L. Longest book you’ve read

58696

I think it’s David Copperfield by Charles Dickens? It’s delightful with typical Dickens angst and misfortune.

M. Major book hangover because of…

5 star books that have characters I really connect with. It’s hard for me to move on to a new book because I still want to spend time with the characters from the last book…my heart takes time before it is ready to devote itself to new characters.

N. Number of bookshelves you own

I have 4! And an unofficial 5th that is technically not a bookshelf and just bare shelf with no sides or a back, but I pile books on it. They fall off it easily…it’s where I keep all my old college books.

O. One book you’ve read multiple times

51X+FEjTFZL._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I love this book with all my heart and I’ll definitely read it again.

P. Preferred place to read

DQVeOniUMAAIC7U.jpg

Couch, currently beside my Christmas tree.

Q. Quote that inspires you

Here’s one I don’t think I’ve used before, from Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut. I guess it’s, uhhh, kind of morbid, but I get inspired by quotes like these-

“There are plenty of good reasons for fighting…but no good reason ever to hate without reservation, to imagine that God Almighty Himself hates with you, too. Where’s evil? It’s that large part of every man that wants to hate without limit, that wants to hate with God on its side. It’s that part of every man that finds all kinds of ugliness so attractive.”

R. Reading regrets

I really didn’t need to give The Bone Season a chance. It’s not my type of book at all…but I gave in to the hype and spent a week reading it and not enjoying it at all. Should have DNF’d.

S. Series you’ve started and need to finish

34050917.jpg

I usually like to read books in a series all at once or very close together so I don’t normally have series hanging, but The Bear and the Nightingale’s sequel just came out like 4 days ago…I plan on getting to it this month!

T. Three of your all-time favorite books

Going with the first three that came to mind.

 

U. Unapologetic fangirl

I don’t think I’m really ever an apologetic fan but my biggest have to be for Harry Potter, The Raven Cycle, The Lunar Chronicles. I went insane over those series.

V. Very excited for this release more than others

Ummmmmmmm TBH well Maggie Stiefvater just announced that her post-The Raven King short story about Opal is going to be published with the release of the paperback of The Raven King in February, and I’m looking forward to that more than any books I can think of.

W. Worst bookish habit

Probably when I spend too much money on them. I considered adding up all my bookish purchases I made this year, but then I thought……….no thanks, self.

X. X marks the spot: Pick the 27th book from the top left shelf

The 27th to the left on the top shelf? Only one of my shelves was wide enough 😶

28449207

Y. Your latest purchase

13638125.jpg

I saw that Vicious by V.E. Schwab was having an ebook deal last week, I think it was? I think that’s my latest purchase.

Z. Z snatcher–book that kept you up way too late

22718800
I could answer this with many books, I’m sure, but one I have the most vivid memory of staying up till like 4 or 5 am to finish is the last book of the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. GOOD STUFF.

Since I wasn’t tagged to this, I’ll let you decide if you’d like to tag yourself! It’s a fun one!

  1. I feel the exact same way about the library card thing too! Ever since I got my own library card I too haven’t had the desire to buy books. I now simply just read and not own them too! It’s quite convenient and helps you to save up!

    • I DON’T KNOW! It just disappeared! I think if I read library books I really love, I’ll buy them so I can have them for my own shelves, but for now I’m content to borrow! I’m sure it will return though, hahahah.
