A to Z Bookish Survey #2

       I've been reading more lately, so I've been posting more reviews, and I'll have more coming up soon, but I felt like doing something more fun today. Back in August of 2013 I did the A to Z Bookish Survey, and I'm going to do it again to see how my answers compare to that of almost 2 years ago.

Author you've read the most books from:

That would be P.C Cast and Kristen Cast who wrote the House of Night Series. I read up until book 8 before I lost interest in them completely. This was also true back in 2013, but the series must have slipped my mind at the time.

Best sequel ever:

I'm still going to have to say Unravel me by Tahereh Mafi. I still haven't read Ignite me, although I've had it since it was released. I keep meaning to get to it, but it keeps getting pushed down the list.

Currently reading:

They Call me Alexandra Gastone by T.A Maclagan. I was wasn't really liking it at first but it's getting better.

Drink of choice while reading

I still drink a lot of iced-tea, regardless of if I'm reading or not. That hasn't changed.

E-reader or physical book:

I'm okay with either but I prefer physical.

Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school:

Probably Cole from the White Rabbit Chronicles, but still would date Four from Divergent. Maybe not so much Adam from the Shatter me Trilogy but Warner, probably.

Glad you gave this book a chance:

The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak. (review here) It isn't something I would normally read but I really did like it.

Hidden gem book:

I'm gonna go with This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (review here) Not many people have read it without me having to recommend it repeatedly to them, but after they read it, they agree that it isn't something they would normally pick up, but they liked it as well.

Important moment in your reading life:

Uhm. Starting this blog was a really important moment I guess.

Just finished:

The Memory Game by Sharon Sant (review here)

Kinds of books I won't read:

I'm gonna go with erotica. I ain't about that life.

Longest book you've ever read:

Same answer as in 2013. Beautiful Creatures (563 pages)

Major book hangover because of:

I haven't had any super recent book hangovers but I may have gotten a little drunk on Gone Too Far by Natalie D. Richards (review here)

Number of book cases you own:

One. Bookshelf game weak.

One book you've read multiple times:

Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi. (review here) (I feel like I never make a blog post without mentioning something about the Shatter me trilogy or something about Tahereh Mafi) 

Preferred place to read:

I'll pretty much read anywhere. I don't really have a specific spot.

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

"I am nothing more than the consequence of a catastrophe" (Unravel me by Tahereh Mafi)

Reading regret:

I still don't think I have one. Props to me for staying reading regret free!

Series I started and need to finish: (all the books are out in the series)

I still need to finish the Shatter me trilogy and the Legend Trilogy.

Three of your all-time favorite books:

Unravel me by Tahereh Mafi
Legend by Marie Lu
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.

Unapologetic fangirl for:

Tahereh Mafi as if it wasn't obvious.

Worst bookish habit:

Probably putting off writing reviews sometimes.

X marks the spot: Start at the top left of your bookshelf and pick up the 27th book:

That would be 13 reasons why by Jay Asher. I haven't read it yet, but it's on the list.

Your latest purchase:

Last time I went to the bookstore I bought a bunch of books. One of them being Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards.

ZZZ--snatcher: Last book you stayed up way too late reading:

I haven't really stayed up late reading anything lately.

This was just as fun to fill out as it was in 2013. Who knows maybe I'll do it again in another 2 years.


  1. The Shatter Me Trilogy is so unbelievably good! Tahereh Mafi is the QUEEN of metaphors and fancifull writing! I love that quote as well! I hope she writes more books!

    1. I am so in love with Tahereh Mafi's writing and I am never going to apologize for the fact that I can barely write a blog post without mentioning her :P
