A-Z Book Survey

Author(s) You've Read The Most Books From: 
 I don’t read a lot of books by the same authors… I normally just read good books and not look at the author.

Best Sequel Ever:
I don’t really read any sequels so I can’t remember my favourite… but I think that the Hunger Games will be a good sequel.

Currently Reading:
‘The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland With A Ship Of Her Own Making’ by Catherynne M. Valente.

Drink of Choice While Reading:
I don’t really mind… I will drink whatever I have at that time…. This is normally water…!

E-reader or Physical Book?
Well, I don’t have an e- reader at the moment so I have to say Paperback.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I am not sure…. I don’t really have a crush on anyone in a book… 

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
I think this would have to be ‘The boy in the striped pyjamas’ because I thought that it would be pretty rubbish as it was based on past events.

Hidden Gem Book:
I would have to give this one to ‘Loser’ by Jerry Spinelli. I didn’t think that it was going to be up to much… but it proved me wrong and turned out to be one of my favourite books.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life:
I guess my important moment in my reading life would be the first time that I thought  it would be really cool to be able to write like that and that is when I started to write… 

Just Finished:
‘My Girl’ by Patricia Hermes

Kind of Books You Won’t Read:
I will read just about anything interesting, but I do not like fact books because they are really boring. In year 4 my teacher actually told me that I should leave reading fact books and just read Fiction because I am much better at reading them… 

Longest Book you’ve Read:
I am not sure… I don’t remember the length of the books I read… 

Major Book Hangover Because Of:
‘Narnia’… You feel like you are still in their world… 

Number Of Bookcases You Own:
I think that as a family we have a bit over 10 but personally I don’t have any bookcases but if I did I think my books would fit on 2-3 bookcases.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
‘Narnia’ by CS Lewis

Preferred Place To Read: 
I like to read in my bed, chair and outside….

Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels From A Book You’ve Read:
I don’t really have any favourite quotes from books but I like all the quotes from ‘Alice in the Wonderland’ especially the ones that the mad hatter says!

Reading Regret:
Not finishing ‘The Wish List’ by Eoin Colfer.

Series You Started and Need to Finish:
 I need to finish reading the Percy Jackson series.

Three Of Your All-time Favourite Books:
It’s pretty hard to only chose three, but here they are:
‘Loser’ by Jerry Spinelli.
‘The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland with a Ship of Her Own Making’ by Catherynne M. Valente.
‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
I love books that are based in different worlds like Narnia. I also love sci-fi… 

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
I don’t really know when any books come out…. But I am looking forward to the next Catherynne M. Valente book to go with ‘The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland with a Ship of Her Own Making’ series.

Worst Bookish Habit:
Glancing at the next page to see what will happen.

X Marks The Spot: Start At The Top Left Of Your Shelf & Pick the 27th Book:
‘The Book Thief’ by Marcus Zusak…. This is hopefully the next book on my list to read…

Your Latest Book Purchase:
‘The Hunger Games Trilogy’ by Suzanne Collins.

Zzzzz… Last Book That Kept You Up Way Too Late:
‘The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland With A Ship Of Her Own Making’ by Catherynne M. Valente.


  1. 1. Hunger Games kept me up all night long. I read all three books in less than 24 hours when Mockingjay came out.
    2. I *heart* Percy Jacksons. The new series, The Lost Heroes, has got me hooked. I'm dying to read the next book in October.
    3. I've wanted to read both The Book Thief & Boy in the Striped Pajamas for a while now.
    4. Narnia is truly a magical place. =)
    5. And I'm always itching to look ahead. Most the time, I'm good. Mostly. ;)
    Great A-Z! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for your comment Ang... Percy Jackson will probably be my next book after Book Thief (I have so many books in my list... I am not sure if I will ever get round to reading them all!) and Hunger Games.
      The Boy In The Striped Pajamas is really good book, I studied it at school but sir just resorted to watching the film, but I read the book that is much better.
