I came across Jamie’s survey at the Perpetual Page Turner and just knew I had to do it. Most of July was a tough month for me and even though things have calmed down now I am sooooo far behind in blogging and this survey pepped me up to get it all done! Head on over to the Perpetual Page Turner to read all about it!
Author you’ve read the most books from
GoodReads says it’s Nora Roberts, which could be true, though if I had put in all the Christopher Pike books I had read he would give her a run for the money. With all that said though I can assure you that Ann M Martin more than runs away with this honor. Between The Babysitter’s Club books and the super specials and the mysteries there is no way I could have topped her.
Best Sequel Ever
Timepiece by Myra McEntire. I loved Hourglass, but Timepiece blew me away.
The Shade of the Moon by Susan Beth Pfeffer (not enjoying it) Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi (good but disturbing)
Drink of choice while reading
Have you met me? Usually nothing, I am accident prone, and I would hate to ruin a book!
E-reader or physical book
This one is a tough one, but I’m going with physical book. I love cracking open hardcover books and curling up with them.
Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school:
Wade/Parzieval from Ready Player One. I may not be into gaming, but I am into nerds and “useless” trivia.
Glad you gave this book a chance
Wallbanger by Alice Clayton. I guess I would say it is more risque than the average contemporary romance (at least that I read) but I wouldn’t put it in the erotic fiction category like I thought it would be in, given the title and the cover. However it turned out to be one of the funnies books I’ve read this year.
Hidden gem book
Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Keuhnert. So amazing.
Important moment in your reading life
My sixth grade teacher questioned my reading choices (Mary Higgins Clark & John Grisham) feeling that they were a bit “old” for me. She mentioned this to my mom at parent-teacher conferences and my mom said that she knew what I was reading and that I was mature enough to read it. I can look back on this and feel good about the fact that my teacher cared what I was reading and that rather than tell me I wasn’t “old enough” she mentioned it to my mom and accepted that my mom knew what was best for me.
Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read
I am the worst at keeping track of quotes so I’m going with: “I love you enough to never make you choose.” Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits
That I will never be able to read all the books I want to read.
Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in series)
Sookie Stackhouse series. I’ve come almost to the end so I can’t quit now!

Unapolgetic fan-girl for
Christopher Pike, Sophie Kinsella, Katie McGarry and now Kasie West
Very excited for this release more than all the others
Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally and Split Second by Kasie West
Worst bookish habit
Being OCD about cover matching. Mismatching covers are the worst.
X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book
Pretend You Don’t See Her by Mary Higgins Clark

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana P.
ZZZ snatcher book (the last book that kept you up WAY late)
