I found the A-Z Meme at The Perpetual Page-Turner (Jamie has the greatest surveys) and as I was bored and looking for “filler” while I was away I thought I’d have some fun and fill it out
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Carolyn Keene, at least that’s what Goodreads says. To figure it out, I went to “my bookshelf” on Goodreads and clicked on the tab that says most authors read (it is towards the bottom of the page).
Best Sequel Ever:
The Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. Yes, this isn’t necessarily a sequel as it is part of a series but it is the second book of the Harry Potter series and therefore I think it qualifies.
Queen’s Gambit by Elizabeth Fremantle
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Tea, hot or cold always tea
E-reader or Physical Book?
Both. I was very hesitant to get an an e-reader at first as nothing could be better than the feel and smell of a paperback, but my Kindle is so convenient and I can read Gone with the Wind without getting a wrist cramp.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School?
Now, I would say Mr. Darcy (preferably as Colin Firth in a wet t-shirt) but in High School I think the geek in me would love to have dated Harry Potter. Lightening bolt scars are sexy!

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read
I’m not a big quote cataloger and inspirational isn’t really my thing but I do love when Hermione Granger reprimands Harry and Ron for not reading Hogwarts: a history. This is how I sometimes feel when someone hasn’t read a book I loved.
That I saw the Lord of the Rings movies before I read the books

I don’t think I’m committed enough to any series to answer the question
