The A to Z Book Tag (My 50th Post!)

Today I’ll be sharing the A to Z book tag with y’all! This tag was created by Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner. Like Jamie, I would jump at any chance to fill out a survey on Facebook during my youth, so I’m really glad she created this. A huge thank you to Laura from Laura Herondale’s Book Blog for tagging me!

Also, this is my 50th post and I’m so proud of myself!!

Author you’ve read the most books from:
– Ellen Hopkins has been a favorite since high school and I’ve read everything she’s written which so far is 15 books.

Best sequel ever:
– Hands down Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Illuminae was so incredible that I didn’t think there was any chance they could create a second book as good as it was, but they did!

Currently reading:
We Were Beautiful by Heather Hepler and The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

Drink of choice while reading:
– You’ll never catch me reading without either a Dr Pepper or an iced coffee!

E-reader or physical book?
– I much prefer physical books because they’re easier for me to read and focus on. I do have a Kindle though and I use it a lot. Sometimes being a mom makes physical books a little difficult, so my e-reader has been a huge help. Especially during the times my son is in the hospital.

Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school:
– Absolutely Adam Wilde from If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I swooned over him so hard during my high school days.

Glad you gave this book a chance:
– Historical fiction is one of my least favorite genres, so I was really hesitant to pick The Valiant by Lesley Livingston up. The publisher sent me an ARC, but it sat on my shelf for a long while before finally giving it a go earlier in the year, and I’m so glad I did! This book was so fast paced and exciting, and I can’t wait to continue the series.

Hidden gem book:
– I recently stumbled upon The Law of Loving Others by Kate Axelrod and was blown away by how good it was. It was released in 2015 and only has around 300 ratings on Goodreads.

Important moment in your reading life:
– Growing up, I mostly read older books – classic literature or things like Nancy Drew. It wasn’t until I was about sixteen that a friend introduced me to the world of YA with Twilight by Stephanie Meyer and Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. These books changed me. They opened my eyes to an entirely new type of book that I had no idea existed, and I loved it.

Just finished:
Hotel Dare by Terry Blas and Claudia Aguirre

Kinds of books you won’t read:
– Typically I stay away from fantasy and historical fiction, but there are books in those genres I’ve enjoyed. Although they are few and far between.

Longest book you’ve read:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling at 870 pages

Major book hangover because of:
Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

Number of bookcases you own:
– Five and they are jam packed full of books, plus I have some boxes filled with books in a closet.

One book you have read multiple times:
Confess by Colleen Hoover

Preferred place to read:
– My couch is where I do the majority of my reading and it’s the most comfortable.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
– “The world is full of tears, and I’m starting to drown.” How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow

Reading regret:
– When I first discovered book Twitter it made me feel like I had to read all of the biggest and most hyped books. I wish I had realized sooner that I should just read whatever I wanted to because books are much more enjoyable that way.

Series you started and need to finish (all books are out in series):
– I’ve still only read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and not the other two in the series.

Three of your all-time favorite books:
If I Say by Gayle Forman, You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Unapologetic fangirl for:
– I know, y’all are probably ready for me to start talking about You’d Be Mine, but it’s not going to happen.

Very excited for this release more than the others:
How It Feels to Float by Helena Fox which releases May 7, 2019

Worst bookish habit:
– It’s rare that I go to bed before 2 or 3 in the morning because I always stay up way too late reading.

X marks the spot (start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book):
Denton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin

Your Latest Book Purchase:
The Merciless by Danielle Vega

Zzz-snatcher book (last book that kept you up way too late):
How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow

And that’s it! I tag Britt from Geronimo Reads, Ayushi from My Bookish Blog, and Madi from The Book Nerd Diaries! Anybody else is definitely welcome to do it too! Make sure you link me in your post so I can come see your answers!

  1. Ahhh omg, I feel weirdly honored that your 50th post is a tag that I tagged you in 🙃 But congratulations! At the rate I post, I’m low key starting to wonder if I’ll ever reach 50 posts, so it’s kind of amazing to me that you have!! 😊
    Oooh, I’ve been wanting to read the Devouring Gray for ages! How is it so far? Are you enjoying it?
    Ahhhh yes omg, Uglies is one of the series that got me into YA as well! I swear, I must’ve read that first book 4 or 5 times, I was absolutely obsessed. I still have my copy of it, and if you saw it you’d likely scream, because the pages are yellowed and dog eared and bent and the spine is so cracked it’s practically falling apart and it’s water damaged and omg it’s basically destroyed, whoops 😆
    You have 5 bookshelves?!?!? Omg, I’m so jealous!! I only have one, but I DESPERATELY need another, cuz half my books are kept in my closet 😂
    Also ughhh same, I stay up way too late reading (and trying to finish blog posts on time cuz I suck at being organized 😆). Definitely a habit I need to work on lol.
    But yeah, I loved your answers to this tag! And congrats again on 50 posts ❤️

    1. Sorry I’m just now replying! Apparently, WordPress hasn’t been giving me all of my notifications because I thought I was caught up on comments? You’ll totally make it to 50 posts! I’ve been in the honeymoon stage with my blog and cranking out so many posts, but I’m starting to struggle.

      The Devouring Gray was SO GOOD!! You have to read it! I wouldn’t have picked it up if I didn’t think I would like it, but I was really surprised at just how much I loved it.

      I’ve read Uglies so many times too! And my paperback definitely looks like that too. It’s so old and has been loved so much that it looks a little miserable, but I love the memories it holds.

      1. Lmao, if it makes you feel any better, I’m replying to this late af as well 😆 I’ve been so behind on replying to comments lately ahhh. But omg, I feel like I just completely skipped the honeymoon stage with my blog and moved right into being stressed as hell about what to post next lmao. I’m kind of starting to get organised with my posting, though, so hopefully I’ll reach 50 posts soon enough! And oh no, that sucks, remember that you can always take a little break from posting to pre-write stuff or brainstorm ideas, and maybe that’ll help?

        Ahhhhh I’m so excited to get to it omg!! It just sounds like exactly the kind of thing I LOVE in a book, so I’m really hoping to like it as much as you did.

        Same omg. One of my best bookish memories is sitting in the bath reading Uglies and reading a particularly shocking scene, and being so surprised that I legit dropped the book 😆😆😆 As much as some of my books look low key destroyed, the memories that come with that are always so worth it that I’ve grown to love the look of a worn and well-read book.
