It has been a while since I did a bookish tag on my blog and that is when I stumbled upon the A – Z tag on Youtube. The tag is pretty simple. I get to answer questions that begin with each letter of the alphabet.
Sounds easy, right? No.
My mind went completely blank and I somehow couldn’t remember even the last book I read. Sigh. Thankfully Goodreads came to my rescue. Otherwise I am sure I never would have completed this tag for another ten days. So let us get on with this okay?
Author you’ve read the most books from:
I just headed to Goodreads and checked out my most read authors who unsurprisingly turned to be Sidney Sheldon, followed by Jeffrey Archer.
I had a phase when I read only their books. Glad I came out of it and became more open to other authors.
Best Sequel Ever:
I usually don’t read series. But I think the last series that I read completely and enjoyed was the Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer.
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Drink of Choice While Reading:
I wouldn’t dare to eat or drink while reading.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Of late I am picking E books over physical books. I moved thrice in the last few years and I lost so many books in the process. And I am now afraid to start collecting again.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
I had a crush on Cross De Lena from The Last Done by Mario Puzo. I am pretty sure no one would remember the Mafia Don anymore. (Hint: He is like the Godfather).
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Hidden Gem Book:
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
I think finding about Goodreads about 5 years ago must be it. I had been blogging for a while then but still I wanted a place to find more books.
Just finished Nordic King by Karina Halle as part of my A- Z reading challenge for 2018.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I rarely read Fantasy and Sci-fi. I am not averse to them, but I don’t feel inclined to pick them up easily.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
I think it should be ‘Gone with the Wind’ by Margret Mitchell. I have ‘IT’ by Stephen King on my TBR for a long time now but the mere size of it is scaring me.
Major book hangover because of:
I usually have a hangover for most of the books. I typically take half the day off before I start another one. Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood gave me a major book hangover. I think I took 2-3 days to recover and then I jumped into watching the Netflix adaptation.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
I have 3 book shelves currently, each at a different city that I call home. But as I said I lost quite a number of books and I have almost stopped buying physical books.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Preferred Place To Read:
I love reading during my commute, so that I used to be the train. But now I read a lot in my bed, just before catching my beauty sleep.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
This is a hard one, given that I am obsessed about quotes, especially from books. So I am pulling a trick.
I love Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson and not a week goes by without me quoting something from his comics. I have so many of them that I love and am sharing here some of my favorites.
Reality continues to ruin my life.
It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.
I’m killing time while I wait for life to shower me with meaning and happiness
I don’t think I regret reading any book, even the ones that I hated or DNF-ed (rarely). But I do regret that I didn’t read some of those childhood classics when I was younger, as reading them as an adult hasn’t been the same.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
I don’t read books as a series, usually. On the rare occasion I do, I make sure all of the books in the series are already published. You know, waiting is for suckers. (Sorry, but not sorry)
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
As any book worm would, I am gonna whine that this is a hardest thing I have ever done, not literally. Yet I told you I would answer all the questions, so here I go:
- And then there were none by Agatha Christie.
- And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
I totally have been adoring Khaled Hosseini and Gillian Flynn‘s writing for a while now.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
I do not follow book releases so seriously. I am more of a backlist reader and ARC reviewer.
Worst Bookish Habit:
I can’t get myself to give up on books aka DNF easily, which means even if I don’t like a book I would struggle through it.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
I don’t have many books on my physical book shelf. So I am gonna do the same with my Google Play which I totally depend on for reading my e-books.
So the 27th book is The Fourth Monkey Killer by J D Barker which I reviewed here.
Your latest book purchase:
The last book I bought was The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, which turned to be too long for my taste.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)
I stayed up all night reading They both die at the end by Adam Silvera.
But I am not sure if it was the last book that kept me up, I am just looking through Goodreads list for the answers. I am just guessing, so let me be please.
Have you ever done this tag? What do you think about my answers? What is your worst bookish habit? Let us chat.
