Justine’s A to Z Book Survey

By Appraisingpages @appraisjngpages


We stole this from Beauty and The Bookshelf, so much fun to do!

Author you’ve read the most books from:

I think that would be Richelle Mead, between the Vampire Academy series, and the Bloodlines I’ve read a lot by her.

Best Sequel Ever:

I am going with, Where She Went by Gayle Forman. It just was exactly what I needed to have happen to get closure from the characters.

Currently Reading:

I’m reading Infinity Glass ( check out the reviews for Hourglass and Timepiece) by Myra McEntire. I’m also reading Northern Bites by Nikki Jefford, the follow up to Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter.

Drink of Choice While Reading:

That would have to be coffee. I pretty much live off of it, but I would say my favorite would be a breve iced coffee with 2 pumps hazelnut and 1 pump vanilla. Yes, its as scrumptious as it sounds.

E-reader or Physical Book?

I love e-books, absolutly. I’m up random hours throughout the night with my newborn, so having to just use one hand for reading means though sleepless nights are brightened up by getting good reading time.

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

Adrian Ivashkov( Bloodlines!)! I have a soft spot for sarcastic guys.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Probably Origin by Jessica Khoury, I’ve never been a big fan of scifi, so i was supper hesitant about starting this book, but I am so glad I did, because it was amazing!


Hidden Gem Book:

That would be Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford. Not many people have heard of it yet, but I’m sure as soon as more people do, it’ll be on best seller list.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Starting this blog! I love all the people i’ve got to create relationships and the great books I’ve had the opportunity to read.

Just Finished:

Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Erotica. I just don’t get into it.

Major book hangover because of:

I’m agreeing with Amanda on this one, it has to be The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It really moved me, I was an emotional wreck for a day or so after… and I feel like its like the one guy you compare all other guys to. I’m always looking for that same connection in other books.

Number of Bookcases You Own:

Four, but that doesn’t mean my books don’t end up all over my house.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me by Sarra Manning

Preferred Place To Read:

In bed with lots of pillows, and no distractions!

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

I just copied Amandas answer because she shares in the love for TFIOS.

“I’m really trying to not sound like a broken record here but, seriously, have you read The Fault in our Stars? Try these on for size:

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

“But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”

Seriously, that last one? And it’s impossible to list all the quotes without writing out the entire novel. Just go read it.”

Reading Regret:

I can’t say that i have any big ones.. I did start Fifty Shades, because I was told it was Twilight fan fiction, and had no idea that I was going to read erotic fan fiction.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):

The Sookie Stackhouse books. I loved True Blood, so I wanted to read the books, but I feel like that just got crazy. Also, the Vampire Diaries books .Those just got out of hand with the directions they went.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

1)The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 2) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 3) If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Twilight for sure.

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

More of the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead and Just One Year by Gayle Forman.

Worst Bookish Habit:

Starting too many books at a time. I always start more then I have time to read.

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

The Ballads of Sexual Dependency By Nan Golden… its a photography book.

Your latest book purchase:

Northern Bites by Nikki Jefford, just saw that it was released and bought it last night.

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

All books, I cant stop a book once I start it!

Please feel free to do this on your blog too and let us know what you think in the comments. this was so fun!
