AUTHOR YOU’VE READ THE MOST BOOKS FROM

Quite literally, it’s going to be Enid Blyton because dudes, I used to devour her books. She’s one of those authors who got me into books and I’m just a grateful lil duck, ok. I think she was the first person I was also genuinely obsessed with. I used to read her Wikipedia page multiple times because the concept of a dead favorite author was fascinating. Sometimes I wonder how I turned out this way.

Aside from her, my most read author would be Rick Riordan because one day, my hoards of seemingly useless information on various mythologies would definitely come in handy.

BEST SEQUEL EVER

 

Listen, we don’t talk about LOS without crying in this house so we shall proceed to not talk about it at all.

Prince’s Gambit is such an important sequel in the Captive Prince trilogy because the first book is very controversial which turned off many people away from these books- which is a tragedy because? My dudes? Laurent and Damen are lowkey Andrew and Neil and I? Am? Trash?

CURRENTLY READING

hou.jpg

Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco! So far, it’s all gory and circus-y and Thomas Cresswell still has my heart.

DRINK OF CHOICE WHILE READING

I don’t usually drink anything while reading because I get so engrossed in the book that I would positively forget to actually drink. But I’d take some good coffee. Or hot cocoa.

E-READER OR PHYSICAL BOOKS

I’d always go for physical books but know that I love e-readers. I mostly read on my phone because I can’t afford all the books that I want to read- and I read a lot. I can also highlight stuff without feeling guilty and it’s portable and everything, of course. But nothing can actually beat physical books.

FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU PROBABLY WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY DATED IN HIGH SCHOOL

(can you believe I’m adding F after posting this because I clearly know the alphabet)

Ah, yes, I think I’d be head over heels for Gansey, you know. Let’s be honest though, he wouldn’t know I existed unless I knew some shit about dead Welsh kings. Also, Percy? He’s pretty cool? And may I please mention Noah Shaw although haha that would never happen. Please notice me, senpai. 

GLAD YOU GAVE THIS BOOK A CHANCE

blood.jpg

Weirdly, Bloodlines is the first proper YA book I remember reading back when I was in either 6th or 7th grade. And unlike everyone who pounced on these books after reading Vampire Academy, I came across it completely randomly on my brother’s shelf. He didn’t even know that he had this but I actually ended up finishing this in two days (big thing for me back then. amateur.) Anyway, I was introduced to Adrian Ivashkov because I impulsively decided to read this gem and the rest is history.

HIDDEN GEM BOOK

This is an extremely easy question and I would 100% agree with May-

art

I don’t think I can yell any louder for people to read this book. It’s one of my absolute favorites. I thought I was pretty loud when it came to screaming about this book but then recently I finally found another human who had read this book (hi, May) and we yelled about this book together and you know what, I think I might do a post explaining why everyone and their dog should read The Art Of Feeling.

IMPORTANT MOMENT IN YOUR READING LIFE

Uh, the birth of my brother? Listen, the guy is a dork and also the reason why I turned out this way so I shall pay this homage to him. If you’re reading this, brother dear- hi, you’re adopted.

JUST FINISHED

thiss.jpg

Josh and Hazel’s Guide To Not Dating by Christina Lauren. I actually read this before my exams and, yes, I skimmed through The King’s Men during my exams. I was stressed out, I needed Andriel so shut up. Anyyyyway, I loved Josh & Hazel!  It read like a romcom (which I always love), had the Opposites Attract trope in the best way along with the Best Friends To Lovers trope which I also very much adore.

KIND OF BOOKS I WON’T READ

Um, I have no idea. I don’t have any problem with genres as long as the plot is intriguing.

LONGEST BOOK YOU’VE READ

I…. don’t know? Probably a Cassandra Clare book? Or Philip Pullman? I genuinely do not know.

MAJOR BOOK HANGOVER 

The Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout. Man, that was a… phase.

NUMBER OF BOOKCASES YOU OWN

A grand total of one. Listen, there are only a certain number of books that you can buy from a really low monthly pocket money ok don’t @ me.

ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MULTIPLE TIMES

skul.jpg

You, too, should read Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy multiple times, my dudes. It classy.

PREFERRED PLACE TO READ

My. Bed. Always.

Or my couch if no one’s home.

QUOTE THAT INSPIRES YOU/GIVE YOU ALL THE FEELS FROM A BOOK YOU HAVE READ

So, this is a very unusual answer for me. This isn’t actually from a book but a play that I recently (like, last night) studied for my English midterm. It’s called On The Face Of It.

Derry: I’ve heard a lot of things.

Mr. Lamb: So now you keep your ears shut.

And…

Derry: When it’s raining, I like to hear it on the roof.

Mr. Lamb: So you’re not lost, are you? Not altogether? You do hear things. You listen.

READING REGRET

Um. I guess the couple Nicholas Sparks books I read except The Rescue because I am a bitter bag of pickles when it comes to them.

SERIES YOU STARTED AND NEED TO FINISH

bb.jpg

The most recent series that I need to finish is the Fever series by Karen Moning. I read and enjoyed the first two books but then there was a hint of a love triangle in the third book and I just tip toed my way out. Even though this series has the slowest slow burn and there is no love for a triangle but you know what I mean. But, hey, I will go back to it.

THREE OF YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE BOOKS

 

The King’s Men (The Foxhole Court, #3) by Nora Sakavic (you didn’t really think I wouldn’t mention TFC at some point, did you?)

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

The Art Of Feeling by Laura Tims

UNAPOLOGETIC FANGIRL FOR

kl.jpg

Yes, of course, it’s Andriel. I love this ship. I stan this ship. I will go down with this ship. I’m unapologetic. If you think my blog isn’t enough, just look at my tumblr and you’ll understand how deeply involved I am in this beautiful mess.

VERY EXCITED FOR THIS RELEASE MORE THAN ALL THE OTHERS

the-reckoning-of-noah-shaw-9781481456463_hr.jpg

Again, there are way too many but I’ll go ahead with The Reckoning of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin. Like the first book, I know this one will break my heart into tiny shards of weeping emotions but you know what, I will still thank it for that.

WORST BOOKISH HABIT

Well, I don’t consider this to be a bad habit in any sense of the word but according to the average human, apparently being glued to a book even when I’m literally in the middle of a class or on the bus does not look well for my safety. It’s just if I’m intrigued or really into a book then I literally cannot put it down. I’ll read it on the bus, in class, stay up till the morning until I’m done with it.

I’m proud.

X MARKS THE SPOT: START AT THE TOP LEFT OF YOUR SHELF AND PICK THE 27TH BOOK

why do I have to get up for this question me lazy

*drumroll plis* it is…..

hunger.jpg

Yay, a book that most people have already read! If you haven’t tho, you’ve got a great story ahead of you.

YOUR LATEST BOOK PURCHASE

The Wicker King by K. Ancrum. What a beauty.

ZZZ-SNATCHER BOOK (LAST BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP WAY TO LATE)

My Chemistry textbook. I’m literally not even kidding, midterms were brutal and I’m still catching up on all the sleep lost. But for a more bookish response:

Dance of Thieves_FINAL 9.18
look at the cover tho

I think it was Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson? At least the first half of it when things were exciting. I’m not sure, though. I like to stay up late anyway. Why am I like this.


So I absolutely loved doing this tag and if YOU, human, want to do it then you are hereby tagged. Some specific humans who are tagged:

    1. Sis, you’re like my favorite human omg. And I’d never blockEDT you because i am dumb but I’m not THAT dumb, ya know??
      I sincerely think that everyone who’s read LOS don’t even need to communicate anymore. We just look at each other, nod gravely and make plans to cry together or pretend that *cough* tHAT *cough* never happened. We even occasionally buy each other pizza to help keep the misery at bay till QOAAD decides to grace us with its presence.
      SAME i was so personally offended and hESItanT when i saw some of the negative reviews rolling in about Houdini because dudes, no one is allowed to hate a piece of literature where thomas cresswell is involved because thomas cresswell, my dudes.
      ahahaha i don’t even TALK about Lux anymore because that girl who fangirled over it is cringing in the corner. man. dark phase, indeed.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU DESERVE ALL THE CANDY AND PIZZA IN THE WORLD MY BROTHER IS LITERALLY BREATHING DOWN MY NECK BECAUSE HE WANTS THE LAPTOP SO GOTTA GO BYE HAVE A LOVELY DAY
