A to Z Reading Survey

If you’re like me, you may have spent your younger years sharing surveys on your Xanga site. As a callback to those times, Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner created a fun A to Z survey all about books and reading!


Author you’ve read the most books from:

Probably Ann M. Martin, the author of The Babysitter’s Club books. What what!

Looking for these pictures kind of made me want to read one of them again, just for the memories!

Best Sequel Ever:

The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis

Currently Reading:

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. Almost finished!

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Water. I’m boring like that. I don’t drink much other than water.

E-reader or Physical Book?

I definitely like having a physical book, but e-readers make things easier, and you can get great deals on the e-books sometimes, so it just depends.

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

With the disclaimer that the only guy I dated in high school was my husband, and he was the exception to my self-inflicted “no dating in high school because it’s a waste of time right now” rule, there is a small chance I would have given Peeta a shot.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

The Hunger Games, Cinder, and The Book Thief… I had no idea they would be so good!

Hidden Gem Book:

Finding Alice by Melody Carlson and Anthem by Ayn Rand.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Reading The Hunger Games in 2011 reignited my love for reading, my interest in dystopia, and my interest in young adult, all in one swoop. Impressive, Suzanne Collins.

Just Finished:

1984 and Among the Nameless Stars are the books I finished last.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Anything erotic.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

Technically, the Bible. Otherwise, probably Crime and Punishment.

Major book hangover because of:

The Hunger Games trilogy

Number of Bookcases You Own:

We have four in the house that actually have books, but we have others used for other storage purposes.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Finding Alice.

Preferred Place To Read:

At the beach or by the pool. Or outside in general.

My husband and mine’s beach reads last year. Sadly no beach this year.

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

I want to tell him he’s not being fair. That we were strangers. That I did what it took to stay alive, to keep us both alive in that arena. That I can’t explain how things are with Gale because I don’t know myself. That it’s no good loving me because I’m never going to get married anyway and he’d just end up hating me later instead of sooner. That if I do have feelings for him, it doesn’t matter because I’ll never be able to afford the kind of love that leads to a family, to children. And how can he? How can he after what we’ve just been through?
I also want to tell him how much I already miss him. But that wouldn’t be fair on my part.
… Out of the corner of my eye, I see Peeta extend his hand. I look at him, unsure. “One more time?” For the audience?” he says. His voice isn’t angry. It’s hollow, which is worse. Already the boy with the bread is slipping away from me.
I take his hand, holding on tightly, preparing for the cameras, and dreading the moment when I will finally have to let go.

From The Hunger Games. Totally killed me when I read it.

Reading Regret:

Not having read Harry Potter when I was younger, and now I still haven’t gotten to the series…

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

I still want to finish the Left Behind series one day. I should also probably finish the Across the Universe series.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

This is hard… but I’m going to say The Hunger Games, Little Women, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

The Hunger Games

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

Cress by Marissa Meyer, coming next year!

Worst Bookish Habit:

I judge books by their cover.

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

Captivating by John and Stasti Eldredge

Your latest book purchase:

Pivot Point by Kasie West; got the e-book for $1.99 (plus taxes).

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

I don’t typically stay up too crazy late for books, but I think Catching Fire was the one that kept me the latest.
