Book Tag Friday: A – Z Bookish Survey

Hi all my Bookworms!

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

How are you all?

Another Friday and another book tag that I haven’t actually been tagged in. I found this one on Faery Reads. It looks really interesting and I hope you enjoy it!

Author you’ve read the most books from

That would have to be Rick Riordan. There is no doubt about it.

Best sequel ever

I’m really racking my brain to give you an answer to this one and the first I could think of is China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan

Goodreads | Waterstones

Currently reading

I’m writing this a few weeks in advance but currently I’m reading A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder by Holly Jackson but I will link here my latest WWW Wednesday.

Goodreads | Waterstones

Drink of choice while reading

I don’t tend to drink and read, but if I’m in the mood to curl up and get warm then probably hot blackcurrant.

E-reader or physical book

Do I have to choose? I do, as a rule, prefer a physical book but there are time when an e-reader comes in handy.

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school

I didn’t date much in high school, but Nick Nelson maybe or even Alex Fierro

Glad you gave this book a chance

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary is definitely top of my list for books I’m glad I read.

Hidden gem book

A book that everyone should read that I hardly ever see anyone read is 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Goodreads | Waterstones

Important moment in your reading life

I don’t know why this book hold such importance in my reading life but it does. I keep coming back to it. I know everyone complains about the books that they read in school but Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah was a pivotal moment in my reading career.

Goodreads | Waterstones

Just finished

My most recent finish books are Heartstopper Vol 2 and Heartstopper Vol 3 by Alice Oseman though that will definitely have changed by the time you are reading this so check out my most recent WWW Wednesday for an up to date post.

Kinds of books you won’t read

I definitely won’t read and thing that could be classed as horror of thriller. Why should I scare myself deliberately?

Longest book you’ve read

A quick Goodreads search tells me the longest book I’ve read is Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix (at 870 pages, I didn’t realise it was that long), but I don’t always keep my Goodreads up to date so I may have read longer and I don’t know about it.

Major book hangover because of

Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. After I read that book I stopped blogging for about six months because I was struggling to finish reading anything.

Number of bookcases you own

It’s quite a lot, especially since by bed is made of bookcases and I have extra wall shelves above my dresser. Bookcases that are actually used as bookcases, even the ones under my bed, and the shelves on my wall there are nine.

One book you’ve read multiple times

I could tell you one book. but I’m going to tell you a series. The Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott. I have lost count of just how many times I have read this series. In fact I did a series review just last month which you can check out.

Goodreads | Series Review

Preferred place to read

In my library curled up in my favourite chair with a warm blanket and some music playing on repeat.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read

I’m not sure whether it’s in the book or not but it is definitely in the stage musical of Les Misérables.

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

Les Misérables

Reading regret

There aren’t many books that I regret reading, in fact I can’t think of one off the top of my head. I do however have regret that I haven’t read more books. Isn’t that the best kind of regret.

Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in the series)

I really need to finish the Throne of Glass series. I started it last year, but I lost momentum with it and now I will probably have to re-read the first few books in order to remember where I was up to.

Three of your all-time favourite books

I’ve probably listed most of my favourite books above, and I could probably list my favourite books just by putting Rick Riordan books here.

Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

Goodreads | Waterstones

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Goodreads | Waterstones

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

Goodreads | Waterstones | Review

Unapologetic fangirl for

Rick Riordan.

Do I need to put anything else to explain it?

Very excited for this release more than all the others

There’s so many books that I want to read this year. They all look so brilliant. But I must confess I really want to see what Stephen Fry has done with the story of the Battle of Troy

Troy by Stephen Fry

Goodreads | Waterstones

Worst bookish habbit

Dog earing pages.

Don’t look at me like that, I know it’s a bad habit, but if I want to put a book down and I don’t have a book mark to hand I will just dog ear the pages

X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book

Which bookshelf?

I’m going to pick the bookshelves in the library which are more family books that just mine so I might get something usual.

Bone Quill by John and Carol E. Barrowman

Goodreads | Waterstones

Your latest book purchase

My last purchase was the e-book of Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Rigaud

Goodreads

ZZZ – Snatcher book (last book that kept you up way late)

Most books keep me up late, but probably the one that kept me up the latest was The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

Goodreads | Waterstones | Review


Like usual, because I wasn’t tagged I won’t be tagging anyone else but if you want to have a go at this, feel free.

Until next time, happy reading!
