Happy TAG! Tuesday everybody! This little time capsule (for it is still Feb 5th) is going to be the A-Z TAG! It’s 26 questions so let’s jump right in!
Author you’ve read the most books from?
Philippa Gregory; I’ve read 17 of her books.
Best sequel ever?
Toss up between Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch and Meridon by Philippa Gregory.
I am still reading 1984 by George Orwell! I’m in the Afterward though
Drink of choice while reading?
I only drink water, tea, or juice. So basically water, grassy water, or sugary water
E-reader or physical book?
I’m sorry what kind of question is that? I read books thank you very much.
Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school?
Okay no one because high school Tarina was. . . look it wasn’t great. Probably Victor from Write Naked by Peter
Glad you gave this book a chance:
Habibi and Blankets by Craig Thomson. I HATE graphic novels but I picked these up to challenge myself and they were two of the most beautifully written stories I’ve ever read.
There area lot of books that I think too few people recognize but, because it’s on my mind.I’ll say Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn
Important moment in your reading life:
Ah. There are a lot. I guess the most important was all those years ago when i managed to read Dr. Seuss’ The Foot Book all by myself and the rest, they say, is history.
Kinds of books you won’t read?
I won’t read romances. I have. I regret it.
Longest books you’ve read?
Maybe Stephen Kings Under the Dome? It clocks in at 1,075 I think. I believe some of AsoIaF are longer but they were also physically shorter books so I think Dome is still longer.
Major book hangover because of:
Kingkiller by Patrick Rothfuss. That got me in some kind of head space for like 2 weeks.
Number of bookcases you own?
Technically 0. My shelves are attached to my wall and came with the room so I’m just renting them.
One book you have read multiple times?
Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie by Kristiana Gregory
Preferred place to read?
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book?
My first thought was “Hope is swift and flies on swallows wings; kings it makes gods and meaner creatures kings.” which is from Richard III by Shakespeare. I’ve never actually read Richard III but when i was 10 I read a book in wich one of the characters was a homeless drunk who would quote books at people to prove he used to be somebody and he quoted that to a group of children; it wasn’t until I was in high school that I learned he’d misquoted it saying it was from Hamlet. In any case that quote has stuck with me for 13 years even if I can’t remember the book I’d actually read it in.
I didn’t read keep better track of what I’d read growing up. I used to keep sporadic lists but nothing complete and now there are so many stories floating around in my memories, and some I know I’ve forgotten. It makes me sad not having a way to look back. I would also like to have an idea of how many books I’ve actually read. I usually guess somewhere between 600-700 but who fucking knows.
Series you started and need to finish (all books are out)
I don’t really start series unless I’m able to finish them, or get caught up quickly. I guess maybe The Jenna Fox Chronicles because I didn’t know there was more than one of them until recently.
Three of your all-time favorite books
Childhood End by Arthor C. Clarke, Meridon by Philippa Gregory, Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie by Kristiana Gregory
Unapologetic fangirl for:
Gentlemen Bastards, Kingkiller, Lunar Chronicles, The Three Musketeers. No shame.
Very excited for this release more than any other:
THE REPUBLIC OF THEIVES!
Worst bookish habit?
Laying my books face down and open probably. It’s really bad for their spines.
X marks the spot: Start at the far left of your bookcase and pick the 27th book:
The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
Your latest book purchase?
Well i just got Wires and Nerves Vol.1 by Marissa Meyer but I just ordered Hidden Figures
ZZZZ-snatcher: last book that ket you up WAY late?
1984 by George Orwell; I have been working nonstop and yet I still spent hours up the other night reading
Now I know my ABC’s. . . If you’re reading this I TAG you to answer these 26 questions
