Author you've read the most books from ..... That would have to be Philippa Gregory.
Best sequel ever ..... Best one ever? Can I give a recent example? Bone Quill by John and Carole E Barrowman is the book that first comes to mind.
Currently reading ..... Spirit And Dust by Rosemary Clement-Moore.
Drink of choice while reading ..... I wish my answer was drinking hot chocolate whilst reading in front of a log fire - how romantic is that? - but the truth of the matter is I tend to do most of my reading during the wee small hours so I don't generally drink anything apart from maybe the odd sip of water.
E-Reader or physical book? ..... Without a doubt I'm a tree-book reader.
Fictional character you probably would have dated in High School .....Mmm? Robert Langdon of the Da Vinci Code fame (The character of my imagination and not the Tom Hanks character of the film). A professor of religious iconology and symbolism, imagine the fascinating conversations you'd have.
Glad you gave this book a chance ..... To give a recent example, TaleSpins by Michael Mullin. Not usually enamoured of either re-tellings or poetry I was totally taken aback by just how much I relished this trilogy of alternative fairytales and re-tellings written in verse.
Hidden gem book ..... The Matthew Shardlake series of books by CJ Sansom.
Important moment in your reading life ..... The time I received my own junior readers library card. Up until then any books I got out of the library had to be
checked out on a 'adult's' ticket. To have my own made me feel so grown-up and somehow powerful.
Just finished ..... The Flower Plantation by Nora Anne Brown.
Kind of books you won't read ..... Erotica, sports related stuff.
Longest book you've read ..... Possibly Husband dearest's copy of JRR Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings. An edition containing all three books in the trilogy, it was 998 pages long, 1129 if you include all of the appendices and indexes.
Major book hangover because of ..... Not sure exactly what is meant by this but The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy still has me reeling and feeling sick.
Number of bookcases you own ..... A double book case with 11 shelves in the living room, a floor to ceiling bookcase under the stairs in the dining room and 3 cases in the study not to mention the various boxes scattered around the house.
One book you have read multiple times ..... Only one? Emm, The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom.
Preferred place to read ..... In bed.
uote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you've read ..... Despite my 'memorable moment' which I include in just about every book review I do I really am hopeless at remembering quotes so will go with this one from A Tale Without A Name by Penelope S Delta which I think sums up perfectly women of a certain class and period in time - 'With that, she suffered one of her attacks of nerves, and had to leave the room'.
Reading regret ..... That once I start a book I have to finish it no matter what. Grief, with so many books waiting on my TBR pile why I can't admit defeat and label a book DNF (Did Not Finish) I'll never know.
Series you started and need to finish (All books are out in series) ..... With only the last book in the series to be read I'm with Kimberly in that I need to finish the Sookie Stackhouse/TrueBlood series.
Three of your all time favourite books ..... In no particular order, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, The Pillars Of The Earth by Ken Follett, as I mentioned in 'O', The Five People You Meet In Heaven.
Unapologetic fan-girl for ..... At the risk of sounding boring, Mitch Albom. Thought provoking and awe inspiring I loved his The Five People You Meet In Heaven and One More Day and would encourage everyone to read them.
Very excited for this release more than all the others ..... Being greedy, I'm having two. Philippa Gregory's The White Princess, the latest book in her Cousin's War series and, here we go again, Mitch Albom's latest, The First Phone Call From Heaven.
Worst bookish habit ..... See 'R' - Having to finish a book. What? You were expecting me to say folding the corner of the page instead of using a bookmark? Now that to my mind is a bad bookish habit. *
X marks the spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book ..... River God by Wilbur Smith.
Your latest book purchase ..... The White Princess by Philippa Gregory - it should be delivered any day now.
Zzz snatcher book (The last book that kept you up way late) ..... Funny you should ask that as my last read, The Flower Plantation by Nora Anne Brown, had me doing just this.
So, what are you waiting for? I'm longing for you to complete your own A to Z Bookish Survey. For full details visit Kimberly's post or meme host, Jamie, HERE
