The A to Z Book Survey

This survey was created by Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner. I'm fairly new to her blog but I'm already an avid reader of her posts, so when I saw this survey I was very excited to try it! Don't you think it looks fun?
According to Goodreads, the author I've read the most books from is J.K Rowling. I have to agree with that!

Swapped by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja. It's the sequel to Split by a Kiss. I've loved Luisa's books for a long time so when the sequel came out, I was really happy and it didn't disappoint! You can read my reviews of both books here and here.

Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike. Have any of you read it? I'm not sure what to think of it yet...

The only thing I'll ever drink is orange squash, so I'll pick that. Sometimes I'll drink fruit smoothies or milkshakes but we rarely have those in the house.

Physical books! I don't have a proper e-reader, just the Kindle app on my phone, but it kind of sucks so I don't use it. Physical books are the best, in my opinion!

Butterfly from The Elites. K? K.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. There, I said it. I only read the series in 2011 or 2012 (I can't remember) because they looked so daunting and everyone knows that genre really isn't my thing...with an exception to Harry Potter, of course. If I hadn't stuck with the first book, I never would have read the rest of them and neither would my Mum (she started reading them just as I finished the last two books).

The Year of the Great Seventh by Teresa Orts. It's extremely long but OMG. You must read it!

I'm going to go straight back to when I was a baby and say that the most important moment in my reading life is when my Mum used to read to me before bed when I was little. I'm pretty sure that's what sparked my love of books and if no one had read to me in those crucial developmental years, would I have ever started this blog?

Undeniable by Liz Bankes.

I won't read erotica. No. Don't even go there. I also don't read vampire novels or paranormal if I can help it, but I'll tolerate them.

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell which is 1,037 pages. It took a loooong time...

I couldn't decide between The Year of the Great Seventh by Teresa Orts and Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone. So, both!

I have one medium sized bookcase and one bookshelf in my room (no, the shelf is not a mile long...) and then I have one medium sized bookcase in the living room, too. There are also seven piles of books in my room and each one is as tall as me! *drowns in books* Hellllpppp!

When I was younger, I was constantly re-reading Cathy Cassidy's books. I think the one I read most out of those was Gingersnaps. I'll never get bored of it!

I prefer to read in bed at night. It's comfier, quieter and I can read until the early hours of the morning and nobody will notice...

"I, for one, am ready for a lot more adventure and a lot less nothing." ~ Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone. So truthful. So inspiring. So many feels.

I didn't grow up reading Harry Potter and it seems like the majority of other people did. I FEEL SO LEFT OUT. But at least I went on the studio tour. Boom.

The Roller Girls series by Megan Sparks. Curious Fox sent me the first two books to review, and I need the other two before I die of curiosity! (Heh. See what I did there? Curious Fox? Curiosity? No? Okay...)

The Elites by Natasha Ngan, Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone and the Harry Potter series. Do NOT ask me to pick one book from the series....-_-

Cimorelli (a band). Oh, you meant books? Damn. Probably Geek Girl by Holly Smale.

The last book in the Chocolate Box Girls series by Cathy Cassidy. I've been reading this series since I was 10 or 11 and I WANT TO FINISH IT! :D

Forgetting to review a book after reading it. :(

The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.

I don't buy fiction anymore because 1) I get lots of review books and 2) Review books come first and 3) I have to spend my money on other things. But I did buy the textbooks I'll need for Year 10 a few days ago. :)

The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher.

If you do the A to Z Book Survey, leave your link in the comments so I can come and  visit yours!


  1. I LOVE this idea!! So much fun I had to try it for myself. I'm trying to do more fun posts, and this definitely was necessary haha

    I forget to review books after reading them too...mostly the books I read for fun, though. But those are often the ones people want to discuss the most! I'm trying to fix that bad habit ;)

    Check out my survey!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one who forgets to review books sometimes! I'll check out your survey right now. :)

  2. What a great idea! I'll be having a go at this A-Z survey later. Thanks! x

  8. Hi I did the survey :D I created my blog a while ago, but I've never updated regularly and properly 'till now! so I guess I'm kinda new

  9. I used to love Cathy Cassidy books when I was a pre-teen, too! Scarlett was definitely my favourite. I agree, reading in bed at night is the best. It means you can ready until you fall asleep, and my bed is super comfy! Great list :)
