Book Survey

It's been a while since I've done surveys, so here we go. Taken from Nicole Rusli Bookclubid's blog www.bookclubid.com :-)

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Sarah Dessen and Banana Yoshimoto (own and read each book written by them), Roald Dahl (I've read most of his books and they're jolly good fun), Francine Pascal (the ones authored by her ghostwriters), Jodi Picoult (have read most of her older books, need to catch up on the new ones).

Best Sequel Ever:

I agree with Nicole on this one. Unravel Me is much better than Shatter Me. So is The Elite is in my opinion superior to The Selection. But I also love the Delirium series, each is as wonderful as the predecessor.

Currently Reading:

None at the moment, but I will catch up :-)

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Plain water, warm tea.

E-reader or Physical Book?

Physical book for the win! I can never get used to ebooks, they hurt my eyes staring at the screen too much.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Wes from the Truth about Forever, though he's so perfect I would probably not be in his crowd haha. Charlie from the Perks of being a Wallflower is more like me, perhaps.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Um. Chrysalids by John Wyndham, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, had to read them in school, and loved it.

Hidden Gem Book:

Chrysalids by John Wyndham. Readers tend to favor Days of the Triffids, but I personally have this on my favorite. My Kind of Girl by Buddhadeva Bose is also a lesser known gem, it's so beautiful and short.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Reading Matilda from my middle school library. Have been an avid reader ever since.

Just Finished:

A manga series, actually: Yona the Girl Standing in the Blush of Dawn. Before that, a short stories compilation: Last Girlfriend on Earth.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Romance, Harlequin, horror. Not that I underestimate them or the people who read them. I tried, and they're just not my kind of thing.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Major book hangover because of:

Matilda by Roald Dahl, the Delirium Series by Lauren Oliver, and Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkins.

Number of Bookcases You Own:

I have two large bookcases in my room back at my parents' home, and another one in our home here now.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

The Sweet Valley series (because they're addicting like that), Sarah Dessen books, and any that I'd love to reread at the moment.

Preferred Place To Read:

Home, preferably quiet, on my bed.

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

Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice; reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author's words reverberating in your head.
Paul Auster.

We live for books.
Umberto Eco

Such beautiful words!

Reading Regret:

Reading The Last Girlfriend on Earth and Seraphina. I want my money and time back.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):

Shatter Me.
Mara Dyer.
Panic (upcoming book by Lauren Oliver).
The Selection.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

Delirium, Matilda, Chrysalids.

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Wes! Alex from Delirium series. Noah Shaw from Mara Dyer series.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

The Retribution of Mara Dyer, hands down. I need to know what happens to Noah next!

Worst Bookish Habit:

Collecting books till they pile up with no more space left, and never getting round to reading them.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

I'm sorry my shelves are a mess right now.

Your latest book purchase:

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. All These Broken Stars.

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

The Harry Potter series, and most books I started.
