An A to Z Bookish Survey!

I love surveys! Well, the fun kind anyway.  Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner has come up with this creative A to Z survey about all things bookish.  So of course I had to participate!  Check out her original post HERE, and if you want to join in the fun on your blog as well be sure to leave her a comment with the link to it (& me too!).

Physical book. Though I do love my e-reader for those quick, instant purchases.

  1. Ok where to begin?!

    Your most read authors DO NOT SURPRISE ME.

    I was going to put WSW down but then was like sigh I will just stick to like a series with more than two books. But now I feel guilty bc it really IS the best.

    *looks for the Tara Kelly book at the library*

    If I hadn't read SCS recently Jellicoe would have DEF been my answer.

    That Amy and Roger quote <33 We used that for our wedding. It's so true of our situation.

    YO finish the Unearthly series nowwww.

    The fact that you have Attachments as an ALL TIME FAVE? Buying this today! I loved E&P and Fangirl as you well know so THIS seals the deal!

    You WERE the fangirl who got me into Jenny Han!

    Thanks for playing, love, and always being so super supportive! <3

  2. "Purchasing books when I still have plenty at home to read!" Oh, isn't that the case with us all? Haha, I know I've got MANY books on my shelves still waiting to be read. It's ridiculous.

    1. I do this too, but I didn't think it was a "bad" bookish habit LOL

  3. Awesome survey! I seriously need to finish reading the Infernal Devices series.

  4. Ginger I love this event and I totally love your answers. Will definitely head over to Jaime's blog and also participate :)

  5. Dr. Pepper ♥ ! There are few things I've missed more since I gave up soda last year. Most of the time, I'm fine, but sometimes, a Dr. Pepper just makes life better.

    I still haven't read On the Island yet, but I need to! I know Racquel (my co-blogger) loved it. And while I'm a little hesitant given the age gap, that's also a large part of the reason WHY I want to read it!

    I love ALL THOSE QUOTES. When that line happened in Jellicoe Road, I think I went back and read it 20 times before I continued with the book. ♥

    Ahhh, I NEED To All the Boys I've Loved IN MY LIFE. It just sounds so fantastic! And Jenny Han kind of rocked my world with her Summer trilogy.

    Oh, Lonely Hearts Club! That was a cute one.

  6. Haha, I defiinitely buy books when I have a zillion others at hoe unread. Terrible habit, but it probably isn't going to change anytime soon.

    I still haven't read Clockwork Princess. I'm terrified. I just know my emotions are going to be ALL OVER THE PLACE, and also, I'm sure there will be a book hangover afterwards. Actually, Clockwork Princess is one of those books I bought . . . and is not collecting dust on my shelf :(

  7. Clockwork Princess kept me up late too! I loved reading your survey :)

  8. Wow, I need to read me some Jenny Han - haha! Good answers. I'm really looking forward to starting Rainbow Rowell's Attachments, since I enjoyed Eleanor & Park immensely!

    I filled this out, too: My Survey Response

  9. I read Covet as well. Isn't the cover beautiful?

  10. I'm glad I read On the Island as well. I wasn't sure based on the summary, but it was so good! I still need to finish the Unearthly series too...I liked the first book, but just haven't picked up Hallowed yet. I have got to read the Infernal Devices series soon! So many people love it! Great survey!

  11. Can't wait to read your thoughts on Covet! I was a huge On the Island fan, so hoping it is just as good! Also, yay for a fellow Dr. Pepper fan! Haha that's what I am drinking now while I am reading blog posts :)

  12. I just discovered your post through your comment on Perpetual Page Turner.
    Ooooh!!! I also LOVE your most read authors, all three of them. I have also read Endless Summer many, many times.
    Also I totally feel you on the scary books thing. Just. Can't. Handle. Them.
    I just posted my own answers on my blog :-)
