This is a little fun survey created by Jamie over at The Perpetual Page Turner. I have wanted to do it for a few weeks, and finally decided to go for it!!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
John Grisham – started reading him when The Firm first came out.
Best Sequel Ever:
Hmmmm…this is a bit difficult for me-but I will sayThe Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson.
Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Water. When it’s later, maybe a glass of chardonnay, but I do most of my reading before dark.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Physical book 85% and E-Reader maybe 15%- I borrow my daughter’s kindle when I really want a book from Net Galley, but otherwise I prefer a real book.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Sirius Black in High School- later, I would want a Mr. Darcy definitely. Actually, my husband is a little like that, now that I think of it…
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
The Book Thief
Hidden Gem Book:
The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow by Rita Leganski
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
When, for the umpteenth time, I picked up a book from the library, only to read a chapter or so and realized I had already read it. That’s when I decided to start keeping track of all the books I read-and stretching those writing muscles- by writing reviews. Hence, this blog.
The Never List by Koethi Zan

Major book hangover because of:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-I think I actually turned right back to the front and read it again.

Pride & Prejudice
Preferred Place To Read:

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“He’d have been glad to witness her kissing his his dusty, bomb hit lips. Yes, I know it. In the darkness of my dark-beating heart, I know. He’d have loved it, all right. You see? Even death has a heart.”
from The Book Thief by Mark Zusak

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Sycamore Row by John Grisham- going back to Jack Brigance from A Time to Kill-always picture Matthew McConaughey!
Worst Bookish Habit:
I am-cringe-guilty of dog-earing books I own-but only whenI love a passage and want to be able to find it again-never to mark my place.
