Today I’m doing the A to Z bookish survey. Martina at https://themysterycorner.wordpress.com/author/martinarg/ saw this over at Pretty Deadly Reviews some time ago. It looks like fun!
A – Author you’ve read the most books from:
Michael Connelly. Michael Connelly is the bestselling author of twenty-eight novels and one work of nonfiction. With over sixty million copies of his books sold worldwide and translated into thirty-nine foreign languages, he is one of the most successful writers working today. I have read all of his novels!
B – Best sequel ever:
For books, I can’t think of one that is a true sequel and not just the next in a series. Most sequels are a bit disappointing. So I’m going with best movie sequel, Godfather 2.
C – Currently reading:
D – Drink of choice while reading:
E – E-reader or physical book:
I prefer physical book. However, I find myself reading more on my kindle as the backlighting helps my ageing eyes. But, nothing beats the smell of an old book and the turning of pages!
F – Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school:
G – Glad you gave this book a chance:
H – Hidden gem book:
I – Important moment in your reading life:
When I got my first library card.
J – Just finished:
K – Kinds of books you won’t read:
I’ll try just about anything. I tend to shy away from Sci-fi and Westerns
L – Longest book you’ve ever read:
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo at 1443 pages.
M – Major book hangover because of:
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. It was so different from the movie and so good!
N – Number of bookcases you own:
O – One book you have read multiple times:
The World According to Garp Mass Market Paperback – November 3, 1990
P – Preferred place to read:
The best place for me is in bed, with cats Lucy and Ethel or on the beach.
Q – Quote that gives you all the feels:
“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
R – Reading regret:
Finishing books that weren’t good.
S – Series you started and need to finish:
Peter Robinson’s Inspector Banks Series.
T – Three of your all time favorite books:
The World According to Garp by John Irving
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
U – Unapologetic Fangirl for:
Brooding, break the rules detectives named Harry–Bosch or Hole.
V – Very excited for this release:
W – Worst bookish habit:
I dog ear pages.
X – marks the spot: start at the top of your shelf and find the 27th book:

Z – Zzz-snatcher: a book that kept you up way too late:
