A-Z Book Tag

I saw this tag over at A Little But A Lot and really enjoyed it so had to take part myself. It was originally created by the Perpetual Page Turner.


A | author you’ve read the most books from:

According to my Goodreads stats, my most-read author is Charlaine Harris with 36 books, followed by Agatha Christie with 35 books.

B | best sequel ever:

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

I’m going with Muse of Nightmares for this one as it somehow exceeded my very high expectations.

C | currently reading:

I’m almost finished Unravel the Dusk by Elizabeth Lim. I’m also rereading Strange the Dreameand slowly reading The Silk Roads.

D | drink of choice while reading:

I mainly drink water but, if not, I like hot chocolate or green tea.

E | e-reader or physical book:

Definitely physical books just because I’m more likely to buy them for my collection. However, I do use a kindle for Netgalley and for very large books that might exacerbate my joint pain.

F | fiction character you would’ve dated in high school:

It would have to be someone sweet and nerdy like Rishi from When Dimple Met Rishi.

G | glad you gave this book a chance:

I don’t read a lot of romance but I’m really glad I gave The Flatshare a chance as it was super sweet and just what I needed.

H | hidden gem book:

If you want a fast-paced pirate adventure then you can’t go wrong with Viper by Bex Hogan.

I | important moment in your reading life:

Definitely joining Litsy and meeting my bestie. We now enable each other’s reading addictions.

J | just finished:

I just read Red Hood by Elana K. Arnold. It was a visceral and gory exploration of toxic masculinity and feminine power.

K | kind of books you won’t read:

I try not to shut myself off to any genres in particular but I suppose I don’t read Christian fiction, self-help books, or poetry very often.

L | longest book you’ve read:

According to Goodreads, Les Misérables is the longest book I’ve read at 1,480 pages.

M | major book hangover because of:

Kingdom of Ash was probably the last book to give me a major book hangover. I think finishing a series of this length is always going to have a big impact on you.

N | number of bookcases you own:

In my bedroom I have one large bookcase, a ladder bookshelf full of Folio Society editions, a small bookcase dedicated to Harry Potter, another small bookcase full of paperbacks, and a desk bookshelf with ARCs on. I also have a large bookcase in the office as well as shelves and boxes in there. Plus a small bookcase in the spare room.

O | one book you’ve read multiple times:

I reread The Scorpio Races and The Shining every year.

P | preferred place to read:

At the moment, bed is my preferred place to read. But I’ve ordered a big armchair that I’m hoping will become part of my reading nook.

Q | quote that inspires you/gave you all the feels from a book:

I have so many quotes I love but one that’s stuck with me is this:

“If you’re going to live, you might as well do painful, brave, and beautiful things.”

The Serpent King – Jeff Zentner

R | reading regret:

Reading American Psycho. I really hated that book.

S | series you’ve started and need to finish (all books are out):

I’ve read This Mortal Coil and This Cruel Design but need to read This Vicious Cure soon. I know I need to reread the first two books though which is putting me off.

T | three of your all time favourite books:

U | unapologetic fangirl for:

I love Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston so would definitely count myself a fangirl.

V | very excited for this release:

Probably my most-anticipated read of the year is either The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen or The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty.

W | worst bookish habits:

Either leaving reviews for ages so I’ve basically forgotten everything by the time it comes to write one or buying books and not reading them straight away. Both are habits I need to change.

X | x marks the spot! start at the top of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book:

Sweet Black Waves by Kristina Pérez (no, I haven’t read it yet…).

Y | your latest book purchase:

My last purchase was Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon. I’ve been a lot better this month and definitely bought fewer books. 

Z | zzz-snatcher book – last book that kept you up way too late:

Definitely The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts.

    Muse of Nightmares has to be one of my favourite sequels too. I read it a couple of weeks ago after putting it off for so long and it was amazing! Lazlo and Sarai have my heart forever!
