TPPT's A-Z Book Survey

Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-turner made a fun A-Z Survey and invited us bloggers to join! I mainly did it, because her reason for making this survey... resonated with me. I have said it a lot this year and I will say it again. I have been a BAD book blogger. I have been working non-stop on getting AttachaPack launched and it seems when I get home I am too tired to read or the only times I have "free time" are when I am out of town for the bazillion weddings our families seem to be having this summer or business trips to Vegas. I started to VLOGs on Saturdays to make my blogging fun, but that hasn't been going well... since again... I have NO time = ( I am most definitely NOT reading to give up blogging anytime soon and I know I am only going to get busier, however hopefully my busyness with just get less chaotic and I can you know get better at managing time and organizing my life.

Until then, I willl just do this fun survey!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Oh this is hard... JK Rowling, Karen McQuestion.. Anna Godbersen ? Definitely hard.

Best Sequel Ever:

Damn, She is making it hard for me.... I will say Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo.. although, I am currently in the middle of reading it.

Currently Reading:

Siege and Storm By Leigh Bardugo

World War Z by Max Brooks --- I am reading this aloud to my husband at night

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Mainly Green Tea. Sometimes Coke. But Usually Green Tea. --Honestly, though those are just my drinks of choice in life as well. 

E-reader or Physical Book?

Physical book hands down!
Although, I use an E-reader for NetGalleys

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

If I was being honest. I would say no body... cause I didn't really date in High School or at all.
However, If this was an ideal world... my number 1 pick hands down is Adam Wilde from If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I mean he is so sweet and sexy and artistic. 

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead I was NOT into reading another Vampire book, but Mead's writing is PHENOMENAL.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins.

Worst Bookish Habit:

Uhm I don't think I have one really. I guess I don't mind bending the crack on my OWN paperbacks. Depends though. 

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Parsons -- which is funny since this a book I took from my 5th grade classroom and forgot to return.

Your latest book purchase:

Frozen by Melissa De La Cruz... Although, I may have done it because I was told we would get a free book in  the mail... I never did receive that book..

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

Sapphire Blue By Kierstin Grier


  1. The Book Thief is also one of my top three favourite books. It's just SO GOOD. I remember my friend in high school read Atlas Shrugged (and he normally didn't read a whole lot) and I was just flabbergasted as to how someone could read that many pages. So props to you for trying!

  2. Kelsey how are you finding The Pretty Little Liars series? I've only watched the TV show but I do like the plot line, slightly scary, I'm wondering how good the book is.

    I didn't even know that Melissa de la Cruz has a new book, is that part of a series?

    My A-Z Survey

    1. I was OBSESSED with them I read the 1st four very quickly. Although, I love the TV show, I think the books are better. The books are pretty creepy as well. I definitely recommend that you read them!

      I believe it will be a series as well, what is even cooler is she wrote the book with her husband.

    2. Definitely getting the books then, I've got it on ebook format, but my personal reading list is suffering lately because of the review books I've got to get through :(

      Kelsey I'd love to invite you to also list your blog on YA Blogosphere it's a book blogging directory specifically for the YA genre. If you'd be interested in reviewing books also I can send you review requests from Authors when they come through :D
