A to Z: A Book Tag

I seem to do book tags really close together but...no regrets. This one is super-duper long, which I'm excited for! The lovely Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner created this one yearssssss ago, but it's still totally relevant. Without further ado, let's get started. :)

A - Author you've read the most books from
Well you used to be able to track this via Goodreads, but they've gotten rid of the feature, so it's kind of hard to tell. 🙃 My gut instinct says Ann M. Martin or Gertrude Chandler Warner, because there are a heck ton of Babysitters Club books and Boxcar Children books.

B - Best sequel ever
Oh gosh... I'm really partial to Catching Fire, as well as Killer Instinct (in the Naturals series). Also The Winner's Crime continues to amp up the drama, and I'm so glad the To All the Boys I've Loved Before books are a trilogy.

C - Currently reading
As of working on this post, Songs from the Deep and Frankly in Love.

D - Drink of choice while reading
Honestly, I'm kind of boring, and I mostly drink water. But I do love a good PSL or a nice glass of wine or rosé cider.

E - e-reader or physical copy
Physical copy probably, but I got very comfortable reading books on my phone while riding the subway 12+ times a week.

F - Fictional character you would've dated in high school
Max Watson from The Start of Me and You, without question.

G - Glad you gave this book a chance
The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls surprised me with just how much I loved it.

H - Hidden gem book
I routinely list these in #quietYA posts, but for this tag, I'll choose...
33602144. sy475 37811028
Not Now, Not Ever for the contemporary crowd and For a Muse of Fire for the fantasy lovers.

I - Important moment in your reading life
Maybe the first time I saw my name in the acknowledgements of a book? Sara Raasch thanked me in the author's note for Ice Like Fire, since I'd championed Snow Like Ashes from the get-go, so that was a special moment.

J - Just finished
A Match Made in Mehendi by Nandini Bajpai, which I loved!

K - Kind of books you won't read
Horror, straight up erotica, most adult romance, most adult fiction in general actually... Memoirs unless they have a good hook (travel, food, or something like Inheritance).

L - Longest book you've read
Les Miserables at 1,472 pages.
15824390. sy475

M - Major book hangover because of...
To this day, I still remember the book hangover that Prisoner of Night and Fog gave me in 2014. A more recent one was caused by Analee, in Real Life.
1766847338184028. sy475

N - Number of bookcases you own
Well...if we count the one I get to use downstairs in my parents' office/library, I have seven. I only have two full-sized ones, though! Three are only two-shelvers, one is super narrow, and one is a nightstand/cube combo thing. But yeah, I own a lot of books.

O - One book you've read multiple times
P.S. I Like You by Kasie West. I reread it at least once every year.

P - Preferred place to read
I have one of those bowl-style chairs in my room, and it's pretty nice, not gonna lie.

Q - Quote that inspires you or gives you all the feels
This one gives me all the feels because it hits very close to home:

"Surely her purpose in life wasn't simply to read as many books as possible?" ~ The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
42431386. sy475

R - Reading regret
Giving into pressure to read certain classics and then not enjoying them.

S - Series you started and need to finish
The Anne of Green Gables series. I even own Rainbow Valley, and every library has copies, so this shouldn't be that hard.

T - Three of your all-time favorite books
Hmmmmmmmm, this is hard. D:

2242935030038906. sy475
Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills
Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
The Start of Me and You and The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord (They're by the same author, so it counts!)

U - Unapologetic fangirl for...
Emma Mills. So, so much. Ever since Foolish Hearts, she's written such consistently strong books, and I hope she never stops writing such soft, realistic, extraordinarily ordinary contemporary novels.

V - Very excited for this release
Supernova by Marissa Meyer for 2019 releases, and The Princess Will Save You by Sarah Henning for 2020.

W - Worst bookish habit
Skim-reading a book I don't like just so I can say I finished it, instead of DNFing. DNFing is a great thing, don't get me wrong, but I'm very stubborn, and I'd like to say I finished a book if I put enough effort into it.

X - X marks the spot - Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book.
I did this based off of my main YA shelves (which are done alphabetically).
Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett

Y - Your latest book purchase
I wrote this post at the beginning of October, and it was The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys! :)
43220998. sy475

Z - Zzzz-snatcher book (Last book that kept you up way too late)
Hmm, it's been a little while but probably either Well Met or Five Dark Fates at the end of September.
43205122. sy475 35391237. sy475

Feel free to do this tag yourself! I never like tagging specific people. ;P
