A quick note: all books and authors I have not reviewed are linked to their Goodreads pages; all that have been reviewed (as of today) are linked to the original review post.
Author You’ve Read the Most Books From:
Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator Takeshi Obata. I’m not sure if I read more books by a certain author when I was little (perhaps Barbara Park or Mary Pope Osborne), but I remember reading Death Note, which clocks in at 13 books.
From fanfiction, I’ve read more completed fanfics by Lomonaaeren, who writes Harry Potter fanfiction.
Best Sequel Ever:
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Drink of Choice:
E-reader or Physical Book?:
Physical book. It’s easier on my eyes. I like turning the pages, and I like the smell of books.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:
I didn’t date in high school, so I don’t think I would have dated a fictional character. I suppose I would have liked to date Ash from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa.
Glad You Gave This Book a Chance:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Hidden Gem Book:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Important Moment in Your Reading Life:
I discovered book blogging from a friend. When I discovered it, it changed my life because I would not be blogging here today. It expanded from there to include Goodreads, which introduced me to other book lovers.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
Westerns. I can get into the movies and TV shows, but I don’t care for the novels.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Major Book Hangover Because Of:
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Four actual bookcases. Seven, if I count three sets of milk-crates-turned bookcases.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by author DuBose Heyward and illustrator Marjorie Flack. I’ve read it every year at Easter since I was four.
Preferred Place to Read:
Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All the Feels from a Book You’ve Read:
“You have to carry the fire.”
“I don’t know how to.”
“Yes, you do.”
“Is the fire real? The fire?”
“Yes it is.”
“Where is it? I don’t know where it is.”
“Yes you do. It’s inside you. It always was there. I can see it.”
—The Road by Cormac McCarthy
I gave away this book that explained football. I wish I had kept it so I could understand the hype since no one wants to explain it to me.
Series You Started and Need to Finish (All Books Are out in the Series):
The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
- The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
The Harry Potter series. I will never apologize for Harry Potter.
Very Excited for This Release More than All Others:
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. I have been waiting for this book since I finished City of Heavenly Fire. I want to read it now!
Worst Book Habit:
It’s a tie between not finishing a book I started and skipping ahead to find out the ending. I’ve mostly broken the latter, but I still quit halfway through a lot of books.
X Marks the Spot: Start at the Top Left of Your Shelf and Pick the 27th Book:
A Woman in Berlin by Anonymous. This is on my “to read” list.
Your Latest Book Purchase:
The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. I purchased this in bulk with a paper bag full of other books, but this is the one I remember.
ZZZ-Snatcher Book (Last Book That Kept You Up WAY Too Late):
A Secret Star by Krystyne F. Aleksandr
