A-Z Bookish survey

Hi readers! Hope all of you are well! Yesterday I did a live feed via my Instagram. It was the A-Z bookish survey that I saw @haileyinbookland do on her youtube channel, so naturally I had to do my own. I wanted to share it typed up for all of you as well as I am missing blogging so much and looking for new content daily. So lets get into it

~How this works. Each letter of the alphabet corresponds with a question. Some will contain pictures and some will not. I would love to read more of these or answer any questions so please comment or by all means do your own!

A: Authors you read the most from? For me that is Cat Winters, J.K Rowling, Lemony Snicket, Cassandra Clare, Roald Dahl and the list literally keeps going…

B: Best sequel ever!harry-potter-seriesObviously I had to go with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets plus all the other amazing books in the series!

C: Current Read:


Right now I am reading Blackest Nights by Geoff Johns. This was recommended to me by my best buddy Ray. He is a super hero junkie and that was one thing that we really bonded over and the other day I was mentioning I wanted to read more graphic novels and he suggested this. I am about 40 pages in and it is so amazing!

D: Drink of choice while reading? For me that’s coffee. That’s my drink of choice for anything that I am doing! It can hot, iced, blended, I don’t care.

E: e-reader or physical book: For me I love a physical book. Its a sensory thing for me. I love the feel of a book in my hands, I love the way they smell I love the sound of the pages turning. However… I love my kindle and I just ordered a new one with more space so that in itself is amazing!!

F: Fictional character I would have dated in high school?

SimonSIMON LEWIS!!! I love him so much!! I don’t know what it is, but he literally is perfect!

G: Glad you gave this book a chance!

imagesFQRSJFV3I was not interested in this series at all, but a lady that I used to work with convinced me to try it and oh my gosh, what a great read this was. I loved all aspects of this book. I found it so refreshing of a story, and something so different!

H:Hidden Book Gem:

ClearingI chose a different book for my live feed because I no longer have a copy of this but this book was so amazing. It is a love story that travels through time. Its so gorgeous and so hearbreaking and such a fast great read.

I: Important moment in your reading life? For me that was when I became a reader. I always watched my mama and nana read and I wanted to be able to just sit and read and book like them. It took me until I was 14 to find my love for reading but once I did it was hooked!

J: Just Finished.. This is a bittersweet topic. So… I just finished Caraval by Stephanie Garber and I was so disappointed with it. I gave it two stars out of 5… if you want to read my review check out my book blog http://www.elsewherebookreviews.blogspot.com

K: Kind of book you wont read: Sci Fi and Thriller.

L: Longest book read:

HP5.pngAt a whopping 766 pages!!

M: Major book hangover: ifhehadbeenwithme_120717This frickin book! It was suggested to me by my best friend, Sharon and I had no idea how amazing it was and how exhausted I would be upon finishing. It was so good and so sad!

N: Number of book cases. I have 1 full size shelf, and 2 smaller shelves.

O: One book you read multiple times.Harry_Potter_and_the_Prisoner_of_Azkaban_(US_cover)I have read this book probably a dozen times and my poor copy is so tattered and the spine is so broken 😦 But this is a book that every time I read it I find more and more I love about it.

P:Preferred place to read? For me that is my bed. I am such a busy person and so I literally have to pencil in time to read and it usually ends up being at bedtime, when I have the puppy asleep and a few quiet moments for myself.

Q: Quote that inspires you. I am a quotation queen and there are so many that I love but right now I am hooked on this … It’s really liberating to say no to shit you hate~ Hannah Horvath. This is quote I heard from the show Girls, and I am one who always feels like I have to please everyone and say yes just to keep everyone smiling but when I heard this I was like hell yes!

R: Reading Regret: My biggest regret is that I didn’t enjoy reading sooner. I feel like I lost so many years of reading because I hated it so much.

S: Series you started and need to finish: What series haven’t I started and need to finish?…

T: Three favorite books:

U: Unapologetic fangirl:


I love supernatural! My sister Jamie has been a die hard fan since day one and I thought it was actually pretty lame for a long time. One summer when I was housesitting I had finished all of my shows on Netflix and this was one that I hadn’t really tried and after the pilot I text Jamie and was like “oh my gosh how did I not like this show.”

V:Very excited for this release!


This is coming out the day before my wedding anniversary and OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!

W: Worst bookish habit. I am notorious for not giving a book long enough to get good. If I am not hooked within at least the first 5 chapters then I will put it away and I wont try again.

X: x marks the spot, pick the 27th book on your shelf

BS.pngLucky number 27!

Y: Your latest Purchase: I don’t have a picture of what I currently bought but I got the Illustrated edition of Alice in Wonderland with the drawings done by Camille Rose Garcia 🙂

Z: and Z I don’t like the theme of the question so that wraps this survey up!

I hope all of you enjoyed this and check back for more book tag fun!


Book Boyfriend Tag


Hey everyone! I was tagged by my bestie to do this particular tag that has a special place in my heart. I fall in love with boys in books alot so naturally it was a wise choice to choose me to do this. Lets get started!

Most Romantic Boyfriend:


Okay, I know this has a girl on the cover but I wanted to use a cover that was different. The most romantic boyfriend has to go to Caspian Crane. When Abby goes into a graveyard, enters a Mosoleum and sees her boyfriend surrounded by candles and sketches of her, how could I not choose this?!?

How do you say hello to someone when you’ve just found out you love him?”

Dark and Moody Bad Boy with a Good Side:

Between the devil and the deep blue sea

This was easy! I had to choose River West. If you have not read these books you have no idea how moody this boy truly is! When you get past the glow, he is a gorgeous and somewhat damaged guy who I believe has a big heart.

“You stop fearing the Devil when you’re holding his hands.”

Paranormal Boyfriend:


This day walking vampire of a boy is the love of my literary life! Simon Lewis is probably my all time favorite guy in a newer series. He is strong, dedicated and gorgeous. He is loved by many, but probably not as much as I do, since I have one of his quotes tattooed on me 🙂

““Is this the part where you say if I hurt her, you’ll kill me?”
“No” Simon said, “If you hurt Clary she’s quite capable of killing you herself. Possibly with a variety of weapons.”

Boyfriend you want to tame:


I know there isnt much to tame here but if we are being honest, Miles was a wildchild when it came to one night stands, until he met Tate… Why her right. I was jealous!

“I didn’t fall in love with you… I flew.”

Boy you friend zoned


So, I love Harry and I do think that Daniel Radcliffe is a babe, however Harry in the books is just cute and would be my BFF!

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

Your Soulmate.

Okay, Okay I know that I chose the same guy for 2 of these and that 99% of the book population hated the movie adaptation of the first book but I don’t give a s%&*!!! The movie was the reason I gave the books a chance and Robert Shehan is FAR superior Simon!

“I wouldn’t change it,” Simon said. “I wouldn’t give up loving you. Not for anything. You know what Raphael told me? That I didn’t know how to be a good vampire, that vampires accept that they’re dead. But as long as I remember what it was like to love you, I’ll always feel like I’m alive.”

Boyfriend you want to Elope with.


I had to choose Ridge. I wanted him to leave his girlfriend that he swore he couldn’t leave and fly away to some beautiful country!  Dont lie, you probably did too!

“Ridge Lawson, will you sign my boobs?”

Boyfriend you would venture anywhere with/ Boyfriend you want to be stranded on a deserted island with!

Yes, it’s a tie and yes I had to choose my other love both Logan Lerman and Percy Jackson! 🙂 You can literally go anywhere with this guy, especially if he is a demi god!

“Be careful of love. It’ll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.”

Most bad-ass boyfriend.

…I haven’t met him yet, not very many bad-asses yet. Here’s to meeting him soon!

Well that’s all folks! I tag anyone and everyone who wants to take part in this!


Book Tag Time!


Hey Everyone, so my bestie tagged me to do this! So lets get started shall we!

A Book that brings you Joy:


Oh Matilda, How you just understand me. Matilda by Roald Dahl is my second favorite book of his. She is the girl I wish I could have been growing up. Sadly, reading didn’t let me fall in love with it until I was much older. 15 to be exact. I only hope that when Kyle and I decide to have children that they will not be like me, and read from an early age and continue to read all the time.

A book that brings you sadness:


The Clearing by Heather Davis. Oh my gosh. This book was amazing. The tagline True Love is Timeless” is not even close to what this book brought to my heart. I stayed up till 3am reading this years ago and I remember uncontrollably sobbing by the time I finished. It was beautiful and sad and left me wishing to read more.

A book that brings you fear:

I have no book for this… I have never been afraid from a book and it breaks my heart. I guess I don’t get as emotionally involved as I think 😦

A book that brings you anger:


Yes, I know all of you are sooooooooooooooooooooo mad that i chose this book but come on, this is a book that got me excited and kept letting me down, same with Hopeless  I only hope that her next book will revert back to her Ugly love/ Maybe Someday writing and leave me hungover emotionally 🙂

Book that brings you disgust:


Again I know, shaking your head but this was such a hyped up let down. However I am willing to give it a second chance if someone can convince me well enough!

So thats it! Enjoy!
