The A to Z of Me as a Book Blogger

When I saw Imyil and Avery do the A-Z of book bloggers tag I knew it would be a great tag to do on my birthday. Because…

Happy birthday to me! Turning 32 today. Yes I am that old. No I don’t feel that old. In spirit. My body is like ahaha you are 50.

Author you’ve read the most books by

At this point I think that I’ve read the most books by Terry Pratchett, Rick Riordan and J.K. Rowling.

Best sequel ever

The Golem’s Eye by Jonathan Stroud.

Currently reading

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh and Perido Street Station by China Mievelle

Drink of choice whilst reading

Blue Bastard Energy drink or Tea.

E-reader or physical book

I still prefer physical books.

Fictional character you would probably have dated in school

Uhm none? As an adult I honestly don’t look at characters like that. I also was not that interested in guys in high school. I mean I had crushes on guys that were very far away from me haha.

Glad you gave this book a chance

For this year I am glad I gave the novella The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy a chance. It is something I would not have normally picked up until it was a free Tor ebook. I bought the ebook of the second novella right away after reading it.

Hidden Gem

Indigo Springs by A.M. Dellamonica. It could have gone with the above question as well as I luckily picked it up at a book market for 2 Euro because it looked interesting. It is still one of my favorites.

Important moment in your reading life

Uhm, learning to read?

Just finished

The Poison Song by Jen Williams. I cry ugly tears.

Kinds of books you won’t read

Won’t is always a big word. I’m generally not drawn to non-fiction or erotica but never say never.

Longest book you’ve read

A Storm of Swords (ASOIAF 3) by George R.R. Martin

Major book hangover

I don’t really get those. I just grab the next one and keep on going~

Number of bookcases you own

Four, downstairs.

One book you’ve reread lots

The Golem’s Eye and Enchanted Inc. Well lots is maybe over selling it.

Preferred place to read

The couch.

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

I have said before that I am not a big quote person so I have no answer here.

Reading regret

Not picking up Terry Pratchett earlier.

Series you started and need to finish (all books are out)

Dangit. All books are out. But it is the truth. Fine.

From just this year so far: The Riyria Revelations, Murderbot Diaries (novella’s), Book of the Ancestors, Temeraire.

Three all-time favourite books

The Golem’s Eye / The Winnowing Flame trilogy / Foundryside

But this is just at the moment. Could be different next week to be honest.

Unapologetic fangirl for

Discworld and Jonathan Stroud

Very excited for this release more than all the others

Shorefall by Robert Jackson Bennett!

Worst bookish habit

Is there such a thing?

X marks the spot: Start at the top left of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book

Going for one per book case lol.
TBR Book shelf: The Diviners by Libba Bray
Blue Book Shelf: Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett
Left Book Shelf: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Right Book Shelf: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

Your latest purchase

The Fairyloot edition of Nocturna from Anderwereld. I kind of geeked out when they had it. I’ve been meaning to read this but had been waiting on the Dutch edition (yes it got translated) to hit the library but when I saw that I couldn’t resist. It is my birthday month. That is a good excuse right?

Zzz-snatcher book (Last book that kept you up way late)

None. I value my sleep.

  1. Hier ook nog even een gelukkige verjaardag wensen. Al is het wel met behoorlijk wat vertraging. Gelukkig kwam mijn kaartje wél op tijd aan. Het antwoord op de laatste vraag is zo herkenbaar. Ik zou echt niet in staat zijn om nachtje door te lezen. Een van Kwante’s foto-opdrachten is om een foto te nemen wanneer je tijdens #thedevilshour aan het lezen bent maar ik haal gewoon middernacht niet. De kans is dus groot dat ik die opdracht niet ga halen. 🙂
