A-Z Survey

August 12, 2013 Whitney Meme 3 Comments


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.

Currently Reading:

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!

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance?

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Hidden Gem Book(s):

Now, Voyager by Olive Higgins Prouty and Jean de Florette/Manon of the Spring by Marcel Pagnol

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

  • Science Fiction
  • Horror
  • Poetry
  • Paranormal
  • Spiritual/inspirational
  • Romances with Fabio on the cover

Longest Book You’ve Read:

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (959 pgs)

Major book hangover because of:

I’ve never actually been hung-over but I get the impression you feel like crap the next morning.  Therefore, the book that made me feel like crap-what-was-I-thinking was the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. (although mainly Breaking Dawn)

Number of Bookcases You Own:


One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, I have read it every year since its publication.

Preferred Place To Read:

A comfy chair by the fire

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.

Reading Regret:

That I saw the Lord of the Rings movies before I read the books

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

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

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

  1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  2. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  3. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Dreamy Mr. Darcy and Harry Potter I shamelessly quote from these two books (despite my  “Q” answer but I usually get nonplussed looks.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches (Flavia de Luce series #6) by Alan Bradley release date: January 14, 2014

Eating while I read
