I’ve recently started following more bookish blogs… I recently came across Cailin at Stumbly Blog and thought I’d steal this little bookish meme to post up here. So, without further ado – let’s find out a bit more about me and reading!
AUTHOR YOU’VE READ THE MOST BOOKS FROM:
I think this would have to be Lee Child! I’ve been reading his Jack Reacher novels for a good 10 years or so, I just happen to not possess any on my current bookshelf.
BEST SEQUEL EVER:
So many to choose from! Up there would have to be Justin Cronin’s ‘The Passage’ series, Becky Chambers ‘Wayfarer’s Series’, and the ‘Nevernight Chronicles’ by Jay Kristoff – they’re all so different but epic!
At the time of writing this, Ed McDonald’s ‘Ravencry’
DRINK OF CHOICE WHILE READING:
Either water or a fizzy drink.
E-READER OR PHYSICAL BOOK?
9/10 I will read a physical book over an eBook, that is my preferred choice. Though I do sometimes dabble in using my Kindle.
FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU PROBABLY WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY DATED IN HIGH SCHOOL:
I honestly cannot think of a character off the top of my head. I’ve read so many books that none jump out at me! But I’ve dated a lot of gamers…
GLAD YOU GAVE THIS BOOK A CHANCE:
I would say Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. I’ve never really read Stephen King and had never jumped on the bandwagon with all the hype, but it ended up being an enjoyable book after the slow rise to action!
HIDDEN GEM BOOK:
I would say maybe Song of the Stork by Stephan Collishaw… Only because I haven’t really seen it around in the book community online and it was a wonderful, heart-wrenching story to read.
IMPORTANT MOMENT IN YOUR READING LIFE:
A few years ago when I moved out, I finally started reading books more for what I was feeling and the genres I preferred. When I was younger I never really spent my pocket money on books and would just read whatever books came my way from my Mother.
A Kingdom of Exiles by S. B. Nova. Read it, ’nuff said!
KINDS OF BOOKS YOU WON’T READ:
I do not read anything non-fiction (unless it’s historical), autobiographies, sports, music.
LONGEST BOOK YOU’VE READ:
Let’s go with books as they might as well all add together… I spent around 4 months of my life reading the Wheel of Time series – and they’re all around the 1000 page mark.
MAJOR BOOK HANGOVER BECAUSE OF:
A Kingdom of Exiles by S. B. Nova. I felt all the emotions for this novel, and I don’t even know when the next one is coming out!
NUMBER OF BOOKCASES YOU OWN:
Does rows/piles of books on desks, wardrobes, and drawers class as bookcases? No? Just the one then 😦
ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MULTIPLE TIMES:
Let’s go with a classic.. Jane Eyre. It is the one classic novel that I have read many times and never gotten bored of.
PREFERRED PLACE TO READ:
My bed. It has such a comforting smell and feel about it. And you can sit in all kinds of positions that hurt your neck and back!
QUOTE THAT INSPIRES YOU/GIVES YOU ALL THE FEELS FROM A BOOK YOU’VE READ:
“One must always be careful of books,” said Tessa, “and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” – Clockwork Angels by Cassandra Clare. So much truth.
Spending money on a self-help book about sugar addiction when you know you will always be defeated by that sugary goodness.
SERIES YOU STARTED AND NEED TO FINISH (ALL BOOKS ARE OUT IN SERIES):
Echoes of the Fall series by Adrian Tchaikovsky. I have had the third and final book since it released earlier this year but have not finished as wanted to re-read the whole series in one go!
THREE OF YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS:
Just three? I’ll put some different novels down as I don’t want to repeat myself… Seveneves by Neal Stephenson, Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan and The Ice Twins by S. K. Tremayne
UNAPOLOGETIC FANGIRL FOR:
I wouldn’t say unapologetic, but I love New Adult Fantasy (where they don’t skim over the sex scenes etc – it really makes the novel and the relationships more interesting!)
VERY EXCITED FOR THIS RELEASE MORE THAN ALL THE OTHERS:
I’ve just done a Waiting on Wednesday for this novel… Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
WORST BOOKISH HABIT:
As hard as I try, sometimes I break the spines of my books (hides in fear!)
