A-Z Book Survey Tag

Hello there! I thought it would be cool if you (yes you!) knew a little bit more about Emma (that’s me!), the person behind the words you see! Since this is a literary blog, I went searching for a set bookish related questions to answer so you can get a feeling of me and my preferences.

In that search, I discovered the A-Z tag on ZeeZee with Books, however the original creator was Jamie at Perpetual Page Turner if you want to go check them out!

With much anticipation: the A-Z Book Tag!

A – Author you read the most books from:

I can’t recall one specific author I read much more than others, but I do enjoy Ruta Sepetys books!

B – Best Sequel Ever:

Scarlet by Marissa Meyers

I wouldn’t name it the best sequel ever, but I did thoroughly enjoy it.

C – Currently Reading:

Money Girl’s Smart Moves to Grow Rich by Laura A Adams

To stay the most up to date on my current reads, friend me on Goodreads or follow the Instagram!

D – Drink of choice while reading:

I don’t have a preference, but usually it would be water or Mr Pibb.

E – E-reader or Physical Book:

While I love the feeling of having a physical book in my hand, I love how portable my kindle is, making reading on the go much easier!

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

Honestly, I didn’t really date in High School, so I don’t feel like there is a character that I would have dated. However, I would have totally had a crush on Jem from The Infernal Devices.

G – Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

I’m going to switch this up slightly by stating a genre of books, and that is non fiction. I used to hate reading non fiction, but lately I have find myself picking out more non fiction that fiction books to read!

H – Hidden Gem Book:

Ashes of Roses by MJ Auch

I read this in 8th grade for our historical fiction unit and I absolutely fell in love with it. It is the first book I remember pulling an all nighter to finish.

I – Important moment in your reading life:

I’m going to switch this one up a bit as well with an important moment in my writing life. And that would be when I decided to take Creative Writing my sophomore year of high school!

I had an amazing teacher (who is still supporting me years later! Shout out to Mrs Trier!). The creative writing classes with her were what helped me to see that I could actually do what I love!

J – Just finished:

Why She Wrote: A Graphic History of the Lives, Inspiration, and Influence Behind the Pens of Classic Women Writers by Hannah K. Chapman and Lauren Burke, Illustrated by Kaley Bales

K – Kinda of books you won’t read:

I like to think I’m pretty versatile when it comes to reading, I’m not completely opposed to any single genre. However, if I had to pick an answer, I would say I tend to not read books on agriculture, just don’t enjoy the topic much – weird for someone living in Iowa 🙂

L – Longest book you’ve read:

According to Goodreads, at 729 pages, the longest book I’ve read is:

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

M – Major book hangover because of:

I don’t remember the last book I became completely immersed in after finishing. I’ve been on a non fiction kick lately!

N – Number of bookcases you own:

1 cubby bookcase, 1 bookcase attached to my bed, and 6 additional shelves of books on my wall (plus another small cubby bookcase for my dorm!)

O – One book you have read multiple times:

The False Prince by Jennifer A Nielsen (this will not be the first time you will hear about this book on this blog)

P – Preferred place to read:

Cuddled in the corner of the couch with a blanket and my dog next to me. Although, lately my family has also been spending time just reading in our basement together and I quite enjoy that time also!

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

“There is more to living than not dying.” 
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

R – Reading Regret:

The first memory I have of Harry Potter was the graveyard scene in The Goblet of Fire. It terrified a young Emma, and so I had refused to read Harry Potter because I thought it was too scary. I regret that so much now that I actually watched and read them!

S – Series you started and need to finish (all books are out!):

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. I’ve read the first one, but haven’t gotten around to reading the second… even though I own it.

T – Three of your favorite all time books:

U – Unapologetic fangirl for:

The False Prince…. I told you.

V – Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

The Butcher and The Wren: A Novel by Alaina Urquhart coming September 2022! I listen to Morbid, Alaina’s true crime podcast and when I heard about her upcoming novel, I immediately pre-purchased it.

W – Worst Bookish Habit:

Buying more books when I don’t have the time to read them all.

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

Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Y – Your latest book purchase:

I JUST went to Barnes and Noble yesterday (at the time of writing this) and bought a few notebooks along with an anxiety workbook and God is Not One by Stephen Prothero, a book for one of my fall classes.

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

The last time a book kept me up late was actually a college life hack book I was reading on my phone!
