A-Z Book Tag

I stole this from Rachel Rossano. Let us commence.

1. Author You've Read the Most Books from:

Consulting Goodreads gave me Jean Craighead George with eighteen books that I read for a contest against my sister and a friend, though it's also possibly Mary Pope Osborne or Valarie Tripp, as I devoured the Magic Tree House and the American Girl books when I was a kid. If you want more recent reads, it's Rick Riordan with 15 books, though I decided last month that I was done reading him. Not entirely because of what he was choosing to write with ... but because of the preachy tone he's taking with many issues. I don't like preachy books no matter what they're preaching. So I'm done with him.

2. Best Sequel Ever:
I think that I shall give this award to The King's Scrolls by Jaye L. Knight. Oh, my aching heart!

3. Currently Reading:
The Yellow Fairy Book by Andrew Lang and The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer

4. Drink of Choice While Reading:
Water. I know. I'm boring.

5. E-reader or Physical Book?

Either. My Kindle gets a tiny bit more of my attention, though.

6. Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:
I didn't date in High School, so I'm really not sure WHO I would have dated. Let's go with Clay from the Wings of Fire by Tui Sutherland. Him or Qibli.

7. Glad You Gave This Book a Chance:The Phantom Tollbooth. 

I was a weird kid who didn't know what she'd like and would judge books by their covers. I didn't trust that dog on the cover. Nor did I know what a Tollbooth was. I thought it WAS the dog.

8. Hidden Gem Book:
The Prophecy of Atlantis by Susan Weakley. I'm still waiting on a sequel for this.

9. Important Moment in Your Reading Life:
The moment I figured out reading silently. Completely revolutionized the way I read. No book was safe after that.

10. Just Finished:
Krakens and Lies by Tui Sanderson

11. Kinds of Books You Won't Read:
Preachy books. Books with idiot adults. Horror. Erotica.

12. Longest Book You've Read:
Unless you count the Lord of the Rings as one book, I think it'd be David Copperfield.

13. Major Book Hangover Because Of:
Dreamlander by K.M. Weiland. I had so many questions

14. Number of Bookcases You Own:
Two. I need another one, though. And the space to put it. Currently, I have a giant stack of books sitting in front of my second bookshelf.

15. One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. It helped me through a tough chapter of my teens.
16. Preferred Place to Read:
I have no preferences. As long I have a book in my hand, I'll read wherever.

17. Quote that Inspires You/Gives You the Feels from a Book You've Read:“It doesn't seem right or to serve any purpose at all. However, if there's one thing I've learned in my life, it's that, even when nothing makes any sense to us, there's still a purpose. And as hard as it is at times, we have to believe that and let it carry us through.”
- Jaye L. Knight. Don't remember which book, but I think it was The King Scrolls.

18. Reading Regret:

I'm the sort of person who doesn't finish books that she would regret, and then deletes them from her memory, so I'm rather pulling a blank here.

19. Series You've Started and Need to Finish (All books are out in the series):
The Ranger's Apprentice. I'm currently hiding from the third book. Don't ask.

20. Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
Ella Enchanted
That Hidden Strength
The King Scrolls
21. Unapologetic Fangirl For:
The Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight.

22. Very Excited for This Release More than All the Others:
Exiles by Jaye L. Knight. I got to beta read it and EEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys are going to love it.

23. Worst Bookish Habit:
It's a tie between my spoiler addiction (part of the reason I like my Kindle is that I can't skip to the end and read the last chapter ahead of time) and my habit of hiding from the later books of the series. 

24. X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 by David Petersen. It's a graphic novel that my cousin gave me and I've read a couple times over. I need the third book of the series. And the series prequel.

25. Your Latest Book Purchase:
Cinder and Scarlet by Melissa Meyer. They were a dollar each at my library. I knew if I left them, someone else would snatch them up, so I snatched them.

26. ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Um, the last one ... I'm pulling a blank, actually, becuase I've not been in a "devote energy to reading" mood of late. I'm going to put in Sew, It's a Quest, because I sacrificed a good number of zZz's for it to get it revised back in February. So ... yeah.


  1. Ok, I know you said don't ask, but I must anyway . . . why are you hiding from book 3 of Ranger's Apprentice? I enjoyed it a lot more than book 2. And it has Horace and Halt on a road trip together and the the Order of the Oak Pancake, which is, quite frankly, fabulous.

    Lucky you, getting to beta-read Exiles! I can't wait for it to come out!

    1. Book 2 ends with a cliffhanger. For some reason, cliffhangers have a 30% chance of making me NOT want to read the next book. And this one scored. So ... yeah. I don't always understand my psyche, either.

      Exiles is AWESOME. Complete game-changer for the series. COMPLETE GAME-CHANGE.

    2. Oooooh-kay. That's interesting. I don't think I've ever met someone with that reaction to cliffhangers. You do you, I guess.

      Oooh, exciting! :D

  2. I borrowed the tag from you.

    I'm even more excited for Exiles after that comment. I almost wished I'd caved to the ARC offer again. But I'll survive until i can get a hard copy.
