The A-Z Book Tag

Hey guys! I am so excited to be bringing you this tag today. I saw it over on Amy from Tomes With Tea. This looked like such a fun tag. Plus it’s a great way for you guys to get me. Maybe some of you will end up doing this tag as well and I’ll be able to get to know you better as well. So let’s begin!!

A – Author you’ve read the most books from?
Well I looked on goodreads and my top two authors are Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) and Bill Willingham (Fables). Both of these are comic authors. Then my third author is Meg Cabot.

B – Best sequel ever?
Hands down, Hunting Prince Dracula By Kerri Maniscalco. This story was so well done. The scenery in this book was incredible. I am super excited to see what’s she’s going to give us with the third book.

C – Currently reading?
Right now I am reading The Favorite Sister By Jessica Knoll. I am not that far into it yet but I am really loving it so far. It seems perfect for me. I am also reading Game of Thrones on audiobook. That was is taking some time but I really am enjoying it. I love the tv show.

D – Drink of choice while reading?
I usually drink water or soda while I’m home. I’m giving up diet soda so now mainly water.

E – E-Reader or Physical books?
I love having the physical book in front of me. Plus I love that new book smell. I do use an e-reader for Netgalley books or when I am on train. It makes things easier.

F – Fictional character you would have dated in High School?
Wow I have no idea. That is a toughie. Probably Harry Potter.

G – Glad you gave this book a chance
The Chaos of Standing Still By Jessica Brody
. This was a cute story I read last year. Riveted was doing the 25 days of Christmas. I decided to take on the challenge and see how many of those books I could read in one day. It was a pretty fun experience. Read more about it here.

H – Hidden gem book
Rough Riders By Adam Glass. This is a comic but boy is this a comic I don’t really hear people talk about much. I love how it brings all these unlikely characters together. They end up making such a badass team. I can’t wait for Volume 3.

I – Important moment in your reading life
I mean I’ve always been into reading. I feel me going away to California a couple of years ago really helped get me back into reading. After that trip I started reading a lot more. It also led me to starting my blog.

J – Just finished reading…
I just finished People Like Us By Dana Mele. I really ended up enjoying it. I ended up reading it in one day.

K – Kinds of books you won’t read
I don’t really read adult romance books. I’m not a big fan of the writing in them. I’m also not super into historical fiction. I will read some on accusation but it’s not really my thing either.

L – Longest book you’ve read?
Last year I ended up starting the Lunar Chronicles so Winter By Marissa Meyer. The last book in the series is over 800 pages long. I’m pretty sure that is the longest book I’ve ever read.

M – Major book hangover because of…
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo By Taylor Jenkins Reid
. That book was so good. The ending broke my heart in two. It was such a good book though. I still randomly think of it.

N – Number of book cases you own?
Right now I own 4. One of those book cases is my boyfriend’s so I guess technically 3. I need more though. I have so many books.

O – One book you’ve read multiple times?
When I was younger I really enjoyed the book What My Mother Doesn’t Know By Sonya Sones. I’ve read that a couple of times when I was younger. It’s a pretty quick read.

P – Preferred place to read?
I usually will read on the couch most of the time. I do really enjoy reading on my bed. I find that to be such a relaxing spot. I’m getting a window seat added to my room sometime in the future. I really can’t wait for that.

Q – Quote that inspires you / gives you the “feels” ?
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

R – Reading regret?
I feel one of the reading regrets I have is buying books I always hear people talk about. There are so many books I’ll get just because so many other people liked it. I won’t know anything about it. Then when I give the book a try. I realize it wasn’t the type of book I’d like anyway.

S – Series you started, but need to finish?
Pretty Little Liars series By Sara Shephard
. I was close to finishing the series then she ended up adding a bunch more books to the series. I just stopped after a certain point. I always told myself I will finish the series. They’re pretty quick reads. Maybe I’ll reread again by audio this time.

T – Three of your all-time favorite books.

1. Dark Places By Gillian Flynn
2. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
3. And Then There Were None By Agatha Christie

U – Unapologetic fangirl for…
I know it’s bad but I really like Pretty Little Liars. I can’t help it.

V – Very excited for this release more than any others
I am super excited for Escaping from Houdini By Kerri Maniscalco. I mean how much fun does that sound! I really can’t wait for that to be released.

W – Worst habit?
My worst habit is buying books when I have so many other books on my shelf to read. I can’t stop myself.

X- X Marks the Spot: the 27th book on your shelf?
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
. I still need to read Six of Crows before I get to this one.

Y – Your latest book purchase?
I actually have bought a couple books the last couple of days. I recently ordered Red Sparrow By Jason Matthews, and a bunch of comics which are Kingsman: The Secret Service, Morning Glories Vol. 1, The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 5: Imperial Phase I, and Chew Vol. 1: Taster’s Choice. I also just bought Why Not Me? By Mindy Kaling. So a lot of book purchasing going on.

Z – Zzzz snatcher:
Nerve By Jeanne Ryan.
I tried to get into this book but I couldn’t. I found it so boring. It was a great idea but I just wansn’t into it like I thought I’d be. I should have dnfed it.

I would like to tag everybody for this tag! If you end up doing this please let me know.
