Let me tell you more about the books I read > A to Z Book Survey

by Anica 1. September 2013 18:47

 

The more books I read, the more difficult it becomes to pin down my favourites.

I saw this post from Queen of Contemporary and  I also wanted to sink my teeth into this! The original post was done by The Perpetual Page - Turner.

Turned out to be more than I thought! But here goes.

Author you’ve read the most books from

Terry Pratchett. My sister first introduced me when I received "The Witches Trilogy"  as a twelve birthday present. I have been collecting ever since.

Best sequel ever

Catching Fire from the Hunger Games Series.

Currently reading

Plain Truth - Jodi Picoult (So this is probably the third time I have changed this, since I started the post) I am taking a break from the Mortal Instruments Series.

Drink of choice while reading

Tea! I am such a tea person. As a treat, hot chocolate with extra marshmallows.

E-reader or physical book

E-reader. Now I can read in the dark without the night lamp and no more bending the spines of my novels. And instant access to the latest books! I still collect my favourites as good old physical books.

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school

I reluctantly admit the mysterious , slightly awkward Mr Darcy.

Glad you gave this book a chance

Game of Thrones, even though I loved the  TV series, I didn't think that I would enjoy the books. WRONG! The books are even better (doh) and now I know what is going to happen! Can't wait for the next book in October!

Hidden gem book

 I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern. Without any inclination of what the book was about, I was enchanted, from the beginning to end. Loved it!

Important moment in your reading life

 I have to agree with Perpetual Page Turner. Discovering Goodreads. I have only been on it a few months, but without it I wouldn't have discovered half of the awesome reads I mentioned in this post.

Just finished

City of Ashes- Cassandra Clare.

Kinds of books you won’t read

Thrillers. As much as I love Stephen King, I am a bit of a light weight when it gets to his books. I read the Dark Half in my teenage years, and after the first few pages of Gerald's Game I had to quit. I read scary stuff, but some of his stuff is too creepy and too horrifying. So I try to avoid stuff that might give me nightmares.

Longest book you’ve read

Les Miserables and I read it before the movie. Loved the movie too!

Major book hangover because of

 22/11/1963 -Stephen King. I totally bought it because 22 November is my birthday.

Number of bookcases you own

Ehrm, so I don't actually own a bookcase...My hubbie promised to build me one. For now I stack them on an old TV stand.

One book you have read multiple times

Only one? I used to re-read my Terry Pratchett collection every year. Because I started young I did not catch all the jokes and references. That's why Terry Pratchett's books are so epic, there is always something new to discover in his books.

Preferred place to read

If I have a pillow and a blankie I'm good. Spot in the sun and I am in heaven!

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

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” Dance of Dragons - George RR  Martin > That must be the most incredible quote that I have read.

Reading regret

Too many books, too little time! But isn't that the anguish of all readers everywhere?

Series you started and need to finish (all books are out)

Erhm...none at the moment.

Three of your all-time favorite books

Jeez, this is tough...

Wyrd Sisters  - Terry Pratchett

Girl with a Dragon Tattoo Series

Fault in our Stars - John Green

Unapologetic fangirl for

Song of Fire and Ice. Discworld. Lord of the Rings. I think that means I am a fangirl for fantasy.

Very excited for this release more than all the others

 The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring - the sixth and seventh book in the "A Song if Ice and Fire" series

Worst bookish habit

I read the last sentence of the book. Is that weird?

X Marks the spot: the 27th book of my shelf

Snuff - Terry Pratchett

Your Latest Book Purchase

Les Miserables is on it's way :D

ZZZ-snatcher book (latest book that kept you up way late)

The Storyteller - Jodi Picoult. Kept me up until 4 am. I had to stop a few pages before the end because I had to get some sleep...

 

Doing and finally posting this survey took me way too long!

Now it's your turn!

In the beginning...

by Anica 9. July 2013 21:57

Wow, isn't this intimidating.

My very first blog post for the fifth time (so I had a few of them already...who hasn't?)

So where do I start?

Hi, my name is Anica and I am a quirky obsessive doodler who studied copywriting. Now I work as a social media person (don't worry I won't call myself a guru or a ninja) and account manager.

I love reading and I prefer to read on my Kindle (Yes, some literary god will probably strike me with a lightning bolt if he hears this, but let's keep it between us, kk?) Want to know what I like to read? Top of the list is Terry Pratchett. Then I like fantasy, young adult novels, whodunnits, dramas and (very) occasionally I will read the odd romance. Oh and then I love kids books - remember the doodler sentence?

I have collected a few companions over the past few years, two cats (Lucky and Blue) and a husband who happens to be the love of my life. (Not that I am a romantic or anything..pfft)
