I saw Meltotheany post this tag today and I couldn’t help myself! Keep reading for the A-Z of my bookish life. XD

A

Author you’ve read the most from: 

Fairly certain I have read more VE Schwab than anything else! Between reads and re-reads, I am a total Schwabaholic.

 

B

Best Sequel Ever:

I have to go with Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson. No 2nd book has ever shocked and surprised me quite as much as this one.

 

C

Currently Reading?:

Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake

Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns, #3)

 

D

Drink of choice while reading:

Coffee for sure! Preferably Book Lovers Coffee!

 

E

E-reader, or physical book?:

Since I’m getting really into Netgally reviews, I am on my Kindle a lot more. I just got a new one and a fancy new case so I’m loving it. In general, my preference is for physical books.

 

F

Fictional character you would have dated in high school:

I would have dated Wylan. He’s the sweetest, but I could never take him away from Jesper.

 

G

Glad you gave this book a chance:

Definitely Give the Dark my Love by Beth Revis! One of my favorite books of the year, and I almost skipped it!

H

Hidden Gem Book:

Can I say Give the Dark my Love twice? Another recent favorite of mine is The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden.

 

I

Important moment in your reading life:

The day I subscribed to Owlcrate! That box eventually led me to bookstagram, and opened up so many bookish interests and opportunities for me. My life is so much richer thanks to Owlcrate.

 

J

Just Finished:

Black Wings Beating by Alex London. Not a fan.

 

K

Kinds of books you won’t read:

I don’t really get into romance. If a book seems like it will have a huge focus on romance I usually skip it.

 

L

Longest book you’ve read:

Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson at over 1200 pages.

 

M

Major book hangover because of:

This is a hard one for me, I don’t get a lot of book hangovers. I did get one after Strange the Dreamer.

 

N

Number of bookcases you own:

I have 4 bookcases, and I really don’t have room for anymore. I also have a set of floating bookshelves that I love!

 

O

One book you have read multiple times:

Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo.

 

P

Preferred place to read:

On my couch right next to my book shelves!

 

Q

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

There’s a quote in The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White that I love.

“Bring me back an equation. The most beautiful equation you can find!”

I think it says a lot about Elizabeth and really speaks to her character and what she wants out of life.

 

R

Reading Regret:

Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith. Just not a good choice for me.

 

S

Series you started and need to finish:

The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series! I read the first one and I loved it so much and then I never continued.

 

T

Three of your all-time favorite books:

Vicious by VE Schwab

Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

 

U

Unapologetic fangirl for:

All the Cosmere books, I need all things Cosmere plz and thank you. Some of Brandon Sanderson’s series connect. I love when authors do tie-ins for their series, and I think the Cosmere is the #1 example of this. I am so into finding all the repeat characters and hidden connections between the books.

 

V

Very excited for this release:

I feel like I would be a fool if I didn’t say Vengeful for this one! Vicious was one of my favorite reads this year, and after hearing Schwab talk a little bit about her inspiration for the sequel, I am so looking forward to seeing where she takes the series.

 

W

Worst bookish habit: 

Buying books and never reading them, or just buying a book before I know I want it forever. I don’t have a ton of space for books in my teeny tiny San Diego condo, so I have to curate my book collection a bit carefully. Netgalley has been a big help because I’m not mostly buying finished copies I know I love after reading the e-Arc.

 

X

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

I went to my TBR shelf, and I found Temeraire by Naomi Novik!

Temeraire (Temeraire #1)

 

 

Y

Your latest book purchase:

I believe it was a copy of Warcross that I painted for Marie Lu.

 

Z

ZZZ-snatcher book – last book that kept you up past your bedtime:

Priory of the Orange Tree! Though to be fair, I was doing a readathon at the time, so it was my goal to stay up super late. Regardless, I found it really hard to put it down, and I can’t wait for everyone to get it in February!

 

I love when people leave these open to everyone, so if you read this far consider yourself tagged! (Though Milana & Jena, if you are reading I would love to see your answers <3)
