Stephen King. I've been reading him for around twenty years now, and he may not be my favorite author ever, but the man is prolific.
Best Sequel Ever:
Academ's Fury by Jim Butcher is my favorite book in The Codex Alera and one of the best second books in a series. I also enjoyed Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende which was loosely related to her novel The House of Spirits.
I actually just finished a book and can't decide what to read next. The smart choice would be to do my homework ...
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Water, usually. Sometimes tea or hot chocolate if it's cold.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Physical book, no question. I have a Kindle, and only use it on long vacations.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Jon Snow. I have no idea. Maybe someone like Lucas from Women of the Otherworld.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I wanted to read it, then I was turned off by the hype, and then I finally read and loved it a year later.
Hidden Gem Book:
A Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russell. I'm not sure if this is really a hidden gem because she isn't exactly an unknown author, but I think this is the novel of hers that gets the least mentions.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
This one is hard because I don't feel like there is one defining moment. I've always been a reader. However, when Pajiba started the Cannonball Read, it was definitely influential in connecting me with other readers.
5, 2 of which are short. The stacks of books I have on the floor would probably fill one or two more (I only put books on the shelf once they are read; TBR books remain in a stack on the floor.)
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Preferred Place To Read:
At home, or coffee shop. Unfortunately, only one Starbucks in the area still has the nice cushy chairs. The others have a small area with table and chairs because they have the drive thru.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
There are two from The Book Thief that just get me.
"I am haunted by humans."
"I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right."
I feel like I should read more classics, but I don't think it's quite a regret.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
Harry Hole novels. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
East of Eden by John Steinbeck, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Dennis Lehane, George R.R. Martin, Jim Butcher, Isabel Allende, Laini Taylor
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Worst Bookish Habit:
Buying hardcovers and not getting around to them until they've been released as paperbacks; binging on new authors instead of pacing them out; falling way behind on reviews.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
I can't do this right now, because my bookshelves and books have been packed up and are currently in storage. :(
Your latest book purchase:
The last books I bought for myself included Snow, Boy, Bird and The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August. My most recent actual purchase were some kids books for a friend's niece and nephew, including If I Had a Raptor. I also preordered three upcoming releases a few months back, and the first of those shipped this week - Skin Game, the newest Harry Dresden, but since I'm moving I don't physically have it, it's at my parents' address. So whichever one of those you want to count.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black would have if I hadn't started it early in the day. However, I did keep pushing off starting my paper because of that novel.
If anyone else decides to do this, please leave me a comment so I can check out your answers!
