A-Z Book Tag

I saw this tag over at A Spoonful of Happy Endings and had to do it!

Author you've read the most books from
Agatha Christie.... she wrote a lot of books and I've read them all. 

Best sequel ever
Hmmm.... Love The Two Towers, love the Harry Potter sequels and love the Anne of Green Gables sequels. 

Currently reading
A lot but I'll just highlight one... Catching Foxes by John Henderson

Drink of choice while reading
Water, hot chocolate or tea.
E-reader or physical book
Physical book though I do like my kindle and ebooks are growing on me.

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school
Henry Tilney hands down. He makes me laugh but isn't afraid to challenge me. 

Glad you gave this book a chance
Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Heard lots of hype about it but never read the series until just last year.

Hidden gem book
Coronation of Glory: The Story of Lady Jane Grey by Deborah Meroff. If you like historical fiction you'll love this beautiful and historically accurate look at the life of Lady Jane Grey.
Important moment in your reading life
I don't even know where to begin. I don't even really remember first learning to read very well. I have hazy recollections. I was pretty young. Obviously though that was very important. Every time I've read Lord of the Rings has been important as well as Pride and Prejudice. Those two books are my favorite and every time I read them I get more out of them. I'll never get tired of them and they'll never stop being important to me. 
Just finished
Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Kind of books you won't read
I'll try most anything at least once except erotica obviously. I don't really read horror but that's just because I haven't yet bothered to pick one up. It's not off the table yet. 
Longest book you've read
Having to check Goodreads for the answer to this... and the answer is The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. That is a compilation but I really did read it all in one big hefty book. So besides a compilation book the answer would be Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. 

Major book hangover because of...
Weird term... I'm not sure how to answer that.
Number of bookcases you own
I own one regular bookshelf. I have my spinning bookshelf. I also just recently got a bookshelf for free second hand but I went ahead and moved it into Brian's house since it didn't make sense to move it into my house and then move it into his house in just a month or so. 

One book you have read multiple times
Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, Coronation of Glory, This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness, Harry Potter series
Preferred place to read
In my bed, on the couch... anywhere comfy. 
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you've read
"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." 
Reading regret
I regret reading some books... Gulliver's Travels, Leaves of Grass, The Sound and the Fury, Beloved, The Austen Project's Northanger Abbey
Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in series)
The Wingfeather Saga... I still need to read the last book The Warden and the Wolf King
Three of your all-time favourite books
Pride and Prejudice, The Lord of the Rings and Leave it to Psmith if I have to chose.
Unapologetic fangirl for...
I'm an unapologetic fangirl for whatever books love. Especially Pride and Prejudice and Lord of the Rings though.
Very excited for this release more than all the others
The next book in N.D. Wilson's Outlaws of Time series. 
Worst bookish habit
Reading multiple books at a time. 
X marks the spot: start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book
Most all of my books are off my shelf right now because I boxed them up and sent them to Brian's.  :(

Your latest book purchase
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)
I stayed up pretty late to finish up Gilead last week.

  2. Ooh, this is a fun tag! I think I'm gonna try my hand at it today ;)
    By the way, I think the "book hangover" refers to when you read a really great book and you can't get over it and move on to another story and new characters for a long time after you finish it because you're too invested. At least that's what I've gleaned from watching Booktube videos...
