A to Z Book Survey

My friend over at Suey’s Books posted this survey of books and I thought I’d steal it and post my own answers.

A uthor you’ve read the most books from: I guess Jane Austen; although I’ve read all 5 Elizabeth Gaskell books.

B est Sequel Ever: I can’t think of one.  Maybe Anne of Avonlea

C urrently Reading-  Book Thief for the read-along, Got Pippi Longstocking on audible yesterday

D rink of Choice While Reading: Whatever I have on hand but I love flavored waters

E -reader or Physical Book? physical book all the way.  I spend too much of my life looking at a screen

F ictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School: Does he actually have to be high school age?  If not than I’d say Mr Knightly from Emma because he’s sweet but tells her when she’s acting like an idiot, hard for me to think of a high school age character I would have dated but maybe Calvin from Wrinkle in Time.

G lad You Gave This Book A Chance: Gift from the Sea by Anne Marrow Lindbergh

H idden Gem Book: A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller- totally spoke to me, even though basically a self-help book

I mportant Moment in your Reading Life: Finishing Little Women when I was 8 or 9, my first big novel

J ust Finished: Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson

K inds of Books You Won’t Read: I guess anything that’s too trashy or the language is has too much profanity

L ongest Book You’ve Read: Middlemarch by George Elliott.

M ajor book hangover because of: Not sure what that is. I loved the hunger games while I was reading them but afterwards I felt depressed and sad.  Dystopian novels tend to do that to me.

N umber of Bookcases You Own: 7 of all different sizes!

O ne Book You Have Read Multiple Times: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell.  Read it every year.  Love it.

P referred Place To Read: Bed unless I’m feeling too tired than the couch.

Q uote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: 

 “The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere. That is why so much of social life is exhausting; one is wearing a mask. I have shed my mask.” Anne Marrow Lindbergh
R eading Regret: That a box of my books got given to DI including my Kierkegaard with all my notes.  Why!
S eries You Started and Need to Finish (all books are out in series): Matched series; although I haven’t heard good things.
T hree of your All-Time Favorite Books: The Book Thief, North and South, The Hiding Place
U napologetic Fangirl For: Markus Zusak, Haven Kimmel (if we are talking living).  I also love the Pioneer Woman if you count cookbooks.  Norah Ephron, Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell if you are talking all time

V ery Excited for This Release More Than All the Others: I was really excited for Blackmoore but can’t think of anything else.

W orst Bookish Habit: Skimming over sections of description and details to get to the good stuff.

X Marks The Spot (Count 27 books on your bookshelf and tell us what is next): Our Town by Thornton Wilder.  One of my favorite plays ever.

Y our latest book purchase:
Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson, Pippi Longstocking if you count audiobooks

Z ZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late): Blackmoore even though it was silly.  I wanted to know how it ended.
