Its been pretty much Hong Kong dominant over here so for a little intermission, I landed on a cool book survey over at Lizzy’s My Little Book Blog. I thought it’d be fun to give it a shot. I should really get around to doing a movie one though ;). Go and check out Lizzy’s blog because its full of cute quotes and awesome book reviews.
This survey was originated from Perpetual Page Turner right HERE! Its my first time visiting and it looks pretty awesome also 🙂
Lets start this survey, shall we?
Author you’ve read the most books from:
I originally thought it had to be Lucy Maud Montgomery but Goodreads proved me wrong.
Best Sequel Ever:
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Usually its Hot Water or Tea 🙂
E-reader or Physical Book:
Physical Book is my first choice
(but I’m slowly getting into e-books to be more space efficient)
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:
Granted I’ve graduated from high school a LONG time ago,
I thought this when I read it in high school and thinking back I’d still do it:
Landon Carter from A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
I read this in high school for a project.
I had been the last to pick the book so I was left with slim pickings and my teacher suggested to read this one and it was a definite winner.
Hidden Gem Book:
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Important Moment in Your Reading Life:
Restarting to read fiction after not having time for it during my college and university years.
I realized how essential it was to my life and how much balance it was as a form of escape and imagination.
The Red Pole of Macau by Ian Hamilton
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I read one once and it took me a really long time to get it out of my head.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
I don’t track page numbers but I’m guess one of those Harry Potter books. Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix
Major Book Hangover Because of:
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn made me have to take a break from reading because of the intensity the book built up.
Her characters and stories are haunting and it makes you ponder the values and meaning of alive and just how scary human nature and the likes really can be.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
2 (although one of overstacked)
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Road Dahl
Preferred Place to Read:
Either in my room on my comfy office chair or sitting outside with a nice light breeze
Quote that Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels From a Book You’ve Read:
I haven’t read a full-length Sherlock Holmes mystery.
Series You Started and Need to Finish (all books are out in series):
Agatha Christie is the only one I can think of, specifically Hercules Poirot
Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
Unapologetic Fangirl for:
Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore
Very Excited for this Release more than the Others:
Unfortunately I’m more current on movie releases than books so I don’t know.
But if there was a new Gillian Flynn novel, I’d be pretty excited 😉
Worst Bookish Habits:
Not using proper bookmarks!
X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
P.S. I Love You by Cecilia Ahern
Your Latest Book Purchase:
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Zzz-Snatcher Book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling takes this one ONLY because I wanted to finish this book before my vacation earlier in June
Here you have it! A little book survey fun for this lovely Friday 🙂
Any of you would like to join in remember to link back to me and of course to Perpetual Page Turner because they deserve the credit for putting this together!
You can even drop me a comment about your favorite quotes, books, major book hangovers, Zzz-snatchers and fictional characters you would probably date in high school, etc? Love you to hear your answers and maybe inspire some new book recommendations 🙂
Happy Friday, my lovelies!
