Bookish A-Z Book Tag

I saw this over at Ashey’s blog and decided to give it a try. It’s a nice post to work on on a Sunday afternoon when you want to have something to publish Monday morning.

Author You’ve Read the Most Books From

This one is easy. I’ve been reading Stephen King since I was a kid and I still get his newest books for Christmas each year. My favorite author by far.

Best Sequel

I liked The Sicilian by Mario Puzo more than The Godfather and I loved The Godfather.

Currently Reading

Sparring Partners by John Grisham. It is three stories. The first one goes back to Jake Brigance and Ford County.

Drink Choice While Reading

Coffee. Coffee is my drink of choice most times.

E reader or physical book

Physical book, but if I am flying somewhere for an extended trip I will use e-books to make packing easier.

Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school 

Why would a fictional character be more likely to date me than the real girls in high school? I probably would have had a crush on various characters from the YA romance genre.

Glad You Gave this Book a Chance

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner. I thought it was a fantasy book from the title and never considered reading it. It is now one of my favorite books.

Hidden Gem

Wonder Rush by Dan McKeon. I got it from NetGalley and loved it.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life

The day I decided I didn’t have to finish every book I started. Why spend time reading books you don’t like?

Just Finished 

My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

Kind of Books I Won’t Read

I would never say never to any specific genre.

Longest Book You’ve Read

The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet I think.

Major Book Hangover Because Of

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner. I connected too much to the characters it was hard to move on to the next book.

Number of Cases You Own


One Book You’ve Read Multiple Times

I usually don’t read books more than once. I accidentally read Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore twice.

Preferred Place to Read

On my deck when the weather is nice. Or on a beach, because it means I’m on vacation.

Quote That Inspires You, or Gives You All the Feels, From a Book You’ve Read

I think this was from a book – Our deeds are our monuments.

Reading Regret 

All the time I spent slogging through books I didn’t like because I felt I had to finish everything I started.

Series You Started and Need to Finish 

Between Earth and Sky by Rebecca Roanhorse. I’ve had the second book from the library twice now and never got to it.

Three of Your All Time Favorite Books

  • Swan Song by Robert McCammon
  • The Stand by Stephen King
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Unapologetic Fanperson For

Christopher Moore. Good author. Good person.

Very Excited For This Release (More than all the others)

Since I left the library world I am woefully uninformed on upcoming releases.

Worst Bookish Habit 

Reading books by familiar authors and not branching out to try new things.

X Marks the Spot—start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book

Every Last Drop by Charlie Huston. It is part of his vampire detective series. He’s a very good author not enough people read.

Your Latest Book Purchase 

I don’t buy books. The last book I got as a gift was Billy Summers by Stephen King.

Zzz-Snatcher Book (the last book that kept you up late)

I don’t think anything can keep me up late anymore, but The 22 Murders of Madison May by Max Barry came close.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! I also liked The Serpent King. A lot of books in the new section at work are books from five years ago so it’s “new to us” but not necessarily new so I feel out of the loop in the new books too.

  2. I may have to steal this idea also. I saw you mentioned Neil Gaiman. I’m 1/2 way through The Sandman Season 1 on Netflix and enjoying it. Bought a Sandman comic collection book and will read that after I finish up the view. Just read a review he gave to the New York Times and am very impressed with the guy. May have to give Neverwhere a read based on your recommendation.
