A to Z Bookish Survey Tag

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m very thankful for the entire bookish community and how supportive they have been of ThriceRead. I’m spending time with family today so I figured a tag would be a great idea. This is a tag that had some unique questions on it which excited me. Enjoy and make sure to do the tag as well!

Found on https://spinesandcovers.com

AUTHOR YOU’VE READ THE MOST BOOKS FROM:

At this point I think the author I’ve read the most is Richelle Mead. I’ve read most of the Bloodlines series, the Vampire Academy series, Soundless, and The Glittering Court. So, it’s safe to say I’ve read a lot of Richelle Mead’s work.

BEST SEQUEL EVER:

ACOMAF I mean can anything else even begin to compare?

CURRENTLY READING:

It really should be Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. But, I’m going to actually be realistic and say The Walled City by Ryan Graudin.

DRINK OF CHOICE WHILE READING:

Coffee. Always coffee.

E-READER OR PHYSICAL BOOK?

Generally I read physical books. However, I’ve been reading a lot of ebooks because of NetGalley and I’ve loved it.

FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU PROBABLY WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY DATED IN HIGH SCHOOL:

This is such a specific question. Lol. I would have to choose Owen from Just Listen by Sarah Dessen because I was obsessed with this book in high school.

GLAD YOU GAVE THIS BOOK A CHANCE:

Omg. I would have to say A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. This book was so much more than I ever expected it to be. We actually discussed this book here.

HIDDEN GEM BOOK:

This is such a difficult question. I might have to choose The Archived by Victoria Schwab. I hear a lot about This Savage Song and the adult novels by this author. However, I don’t hear much about The Archived or The Unbound.

IMPORTANT MOMENT IN YOUR READING LIFE:

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee truly transformed my ideas of classics.

JUST FINISHED:

I just recently finished an ARC titled Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia and I fell in love with the mystery.

KINDS OF BOOKS YOU WON’T READ:

Nothing. I will read anything and everything.

LONGEST BOOK YOU’VE READ:

This is really difficult. Maybe Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens. I’m not sure though.

MAJOR BOOK HANGOVER BECAUSE OF:

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Is there any need for an explanation?

NUMBER OF BOOKCASES YOU OWN:

I currently have 5 bookshelves. 3 of them are fullsized shelves from Ikea and 2 are ladder bookshelves. If I could I would have a room made completely of bookshelves.

ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MULTIPLE TIMES:

I’ve read Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief  by Rick Riordan numerous times. A couple on my own volition and multiple because I assign it to my 6th graders each year.

PREFERRED PLACE TO READ:

I typically read on my bed. It’s a spot that does not allow me to get distracted by people around me.

QUOTE THAT INSPIRES YOU:

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

-J.K. Rowling

READING REGRET:

I regret not finishing Rick Riordan’s series. I really enjoyed the books but I just kind of stopped reading them. Now I feel like I would need to reread a lot of the books to catch back up.

SERIES YOU STARTED AND NEED TO FINISH(ALL BOOKS ARE OUT IN SERIES):

The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo and The Miss Peregrine’s series by Ransom Riggs are the 2 that come to mind. I enjoy these series but I’ve definitely procrastinated finishing them.

THREE OF YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS:

1) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

2) Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix by J.K. Rowling

3) The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

UNAPOLOGETIC FANGIRL FOR:

I mean several of these answers have revolved around Harry Potter so how could I answer this one any differently? I’m total Harry Potter trash and I love it.

VERY EXCITED FOR THIS RELEASE MORE THAN ALL THE OTHERS:

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. ACOWAR guys ACOWAR!

WORST BOOKISH HABIT:

I buy way more books than I can actually read. My TBR list just continues to grow despite having bookshelves full.

X MARKS THE SPOT: START AT THE TOP LEFT OF YOUR SHELF AND PICK THE 27TH BOOK:

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

YOUR LATEST BOOK PURCHASE:

Most recently I purchased the audiobook for Truthwitch by Susan Dennard because I need to finish it at some point.

ZZZ-SNATCHER BOOK (LAST BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP WAY LATE):

Ugh this is a hard one. I think it would be The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout which I did a review for right here.

What was the last book that kept you up late at night? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Oh I love this tag! I haven’t seen it before. I haven’t completed the Percy Jackson series either. Rick Riordan’s books are good but I just got busy with others. I’ve read the first 4 books and The Red Pyramid (which I didn’t like very much). I also really liked the Truthwitch audiobook. It was my first one ever (yay!) and I found it a lot easier to listen to than actually read.

  2. Harry Potter trash! Hah! Same. I’m from a smaller southern town and when the final movie came out, my cousin, my friend and I made tshirt and brought our wands and made the front page of the newspaper. Haha
