The A-Z Survey Tag

I love tags. I love watching them on youtube and reading them on book blogs. I found this one and I thought it was so awesome, so why not!

Author You've Read the Most Books From
I would have to say Virginia Woolf, since I am writing my current thesis on her.

For YA, I am thinking Melissa De La Cruz, since she has written a lot and I have read a majority of them and same goes for Richelle Mead.

Best Sequel Ever
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I loved Cinder.. but I just loved LOVED Scarlet.

Currently Reading
A bunch of things at once.. which I don't like doing, but you know.. I have to, cause of school.

  • Cress by Marissa Meyer
  • Jacob's Room by Virginia Woolf
  • The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot
  • The Animated Bestiary: Animals, Cartoons and Culture by Paul Wells

Drink of Choice While Reading
Tea or water.

E-Reader or Physical Book?
I tried the E-reader for a bit.. but it is honestly now sitting on my bookshelf neglected and most of the books I bought on there, I now own a physical copy. You just can't beat a physical copy.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School

Major Book Hangover Because of

That book was just amazing.. and anything I read after that just could not compare.

Number of Bookcases You Own
Two short ones, but they are double stacked and I have about 6 piles of books on my floor.. so yeah, I need some more shelves.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times
I plan another re-read this year!

Preferred Place to Read
My room is my sanctuary. So, my bed and my desk.

Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels From a Book You've Read
"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it."

Reading Regret
Not starting The Walking Dead comics earlier.. and also selling my manga collection years ago, because now I really miss them and I want to reread series like Fruits Baskets or Kare Kano again. *sigh*

The Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I have only read the first one.
