A to Z Survey is sponsored by The Perpetual Page-Turner.
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Charlaine Harris – the Sookie Stackhouse series (13 books)
Best Sequel Ever:
I don’t know about ever, but Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins lived up to the hype.
I just finished something and am getting ready to read another library book, I’m not sure which one yet.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Cherry Coke Zero or Water are my two drinks.
E-reader or Physical Book?
I have a Nook and I LOVE it, but when I actually buy a book, I miss having the hard copy on my shelf. I usually go for Nook Books, though.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Peeta Melark. No explanation needed.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I heard about this book forever and wavered back and forth about it. I finally broke down and bought it. I loved it and passed it on to everyone in my family and they all loved it – including both my parents. My sister also became a staff writer on the largest Hunger Games fansite: http://mockingjay.net/
Hidden Gem Book:
Below the Root by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. The first – and by far my favorite –of the Green Sky trilogy. I read this is a kid and then again just this year and it’s amazing. I don’t think I came even close to understanding the underlying themes of it when I was a kid.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Downloading a Nook App for my iPod. It really got me reading again, after years of not doing it.
Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I generally don’t like Non-Fiction. Or Historical Fiction that focuses on real life people. I have a hard time reconciling make-believe conversations and circumstances of real people.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Fragments by Dan Wells – 564pages. It could’ve been about 300 pages less.
Major book hangover because of:
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. It took me a long time to decide if I loved or hated the ending.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
3. One of them contains movies, though. And I’m counting my Nook as a bookshelf. It has over 200 books on it that I don’t own in print.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.
Preferred Place To Read:
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
I don’t know really know about this one. I’ll go with a quote that describes the moment I fell in love with a character:
“Everything is becoming so shabby these days. So lacking in worth. I just don’t like feel joining the trend.” – Fenton Wood-Lacey turning down a hook-up in The Passing Bells by Phillip Rock
Breed by Chase Novak. I looked forward to it for a long time and it was just weird and a letdown.

The last book in the Passing Bells series.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
At the moment, Allegient by Veronica Roth.
Worst Bookish Habit:
Downloading almost every free book I come across. I have over a hundred in my Nook I haven’t even looked at.
