A-Z Bookish Survey

I saw this over on Bookworm Blues and thought it looked fun.

Author You’ve Read the Most Books From:

Mercedes Lackey with Tamora Pierce and Lois McMaster Bujold coming in as close seconds.

Best Sequel Ever:

The first is great. The second one is better. The third is best.

The King of Attolia

Currently Reading:

BladeMissPeregrine

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Vanilla Coke

E-Reader or Physical Book:

Both. I don’t like carting around a pile of books while I travel, but when I’m at home, I still prefer paper and ink.

Fictional Character You Probably Would’ve Actually Dated in High School:

Herald Mage Vanyel Ashkevron from Mercedes Lackey’s The Last Herald Mage Trilogy, though I wouldn’t have had a chance because he’s gay. Still we spent many wonderful hours together, so it’s kind of like we were dating, right?

Magic's Price

Glad You Gave This Book a Chance:

I’d almost decided not to read this at all until I found it on sale and now it’s probably one of my favorite retellings.

Cinder

Hidden Gem Book:

WrenCurse

Important Moment in Your Reading Life:

When I got serious about writing. Totally changed the way I read. Sometimes I wish I could go back. I’d enjoy way more books that way.

Just Finished:

FreakCryo

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Just not interested. Goes for literary fiction as well.

The Notebook

Longest Book You’ve Read:

According to Goodreads.com…1,015 pages.

Kushiel's Dart

Major Book Hangover Because of:

Her books ruined me for all other books. This one in particular broke me and put me back together again.

Mirror Dance

Number of Bookcases You Own:

Nine.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

So many old friends and I have to choose just one? How about I narrow it down to two?

BlueNight

Preferred Place to Read:

Um, anywhere I happen to be. I have a comfy chair in my library but I just never end up there.

Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All the Feels From a Book You’ve Read:

“Most of us are called on to perform tasks far beyond what we can do. Our capabilities seldom match our aspirations, and we are often woefully unprepared. To this extent, we are all Assistant Pig-Keepers at heart.”

The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

Reading Regret:

I regret wasting time on terrible books like these. See W.

FridayWolf

Series you Started and Need to Finish (All Books in Series Are Out):

It’s just shameful that I haven’t finished these. I’m so sorry, Carol. I’ll get right on it.

RaiKirah

Three of Your All Time Favorite Books:

Okay, I guess choosing three is better than listing the seventy-seven Goodreads says I have.

CivilTrickFlesh

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Oh dear. You caught me.

FushigiSailor

Very Excited For This Release, More So Than Others:

It’s actually already out, so maybe it doesn’t count, but I about peed myself when I heard there was another Vorkosigan novel coming and then I waited AGES for it.

Captain Vorpatril's Alliance

Worst Bookish Habit:

I cannot put down a bad book. It could get better on the next page.

X-Marks the Spot: Start at the Top Left of Your Shelf and Pick the 27th Book

World War Z

Your Latest Book Purchase:

I went to the used book sale at my library last weekend and picked up a bunch. Too many to picture here. But among my selections were childhood favorites like these that should have already been on my shelf.

WolvesCatherine

And new ones that I’m really looking forward to like these.
