Tag: A-Z Bookish Questions

book

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.

Currently Reading:

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:

Recently I read a translated work of Korean fiction by Han Kang called the Vegetarian. I can safely say it was pretty weird!

Hidden Gem Book:

I found this gem out of accident and I ended up reading the whole series. I think everyone should give it a chance The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne.

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:

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:

I rarely re-read books except for the classics. I think the last book I re-read was ‘And then there were none‘ by Agatha Christie

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

Reading Regret:

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:

  1. And then there were none by Agatha Christie
  2. And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
  3. 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.

  1. I have lost over 400 books in the state to state moves. I always had to leave in a rush at the time and couldn’t take them ( if you knew my past, you would tell ME to write a book). I stopped buying books. Apparently, my dear old dad, who has been storing 250 books for me, threw every single one in the garbage! No phone call, no text. I’m so mad. So, I don’t talk to him anymore. Complete disrespect.

  2. This a-z tag is interesting and fun to read.I am thinking of doing a similar one on my blog page 🙂 thanks for the idea… and I see that we both have read Sidney Sheldon and Jeff Archer the most 🙂
    If I have to say my worst bookish habit, it has to be buying or borrowing books even before i finish the one i have stacked up 🙂

  3. I swear Goodreads is an absolute blessing for getting us through these tags. 😂 My memory is fishier than a fish so I need all the help.

    I’ve always been an eBook fan than a physical book fan because I’m planning on moving soon, but somehow I still accumulate books? 😳

    Waiting to DNF is a bad habit of mine as well! There are so many books I read I feel should’ve been done with, but I just keep on going and going because I THINK and HOPE it will be better. Eventually I do give up, though, but it happens much later. 😂
