I love doing surveys like this, and revisiting them from years past. This is one I did three or four years ago. Not much has changed, other than the what are you currently reading and what have you just finished questions. I hope you enjoy this post. Please feel free to join in the fun in the comments!!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Nora Roberts – Did she write it? Then I read it!
J.D. Robb (Eve & Roarke, *sigh*)
Laurell K. Hamilton (Anita Blake & Merry Gentry series)
Debbie Macomber (Cedar Cove, Blossom Street, Midnight Sons, Dakota)
J.R. Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood series)
Johanna Lindsey (love me some Malory men!)
Best Sequel Ever:
When J.K. Rowling writes a (real) 8th Harry Potter book OR when Stephenie Meyer writes Renesmee & Jacob’s story.
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon
The Wars of the Roses by Dan Jones
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Iced Chai Tea Latte or Hot Chai Tea Latte, depending on the weather
E-reader or Physical Book?
Kindle – because I love having my entire library at my fingertips!
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Edward Cullen…oh wait! This is “reality” not “fantasy” so in that case…hmmm, I didn’t actually date anyone in high school, so I have NO idea. LOL!
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Heaven and Hell: The Journey of Chris and Serena Davis by Kenneth Zeigler. (This still wins. Love this book!)

Wings of a Dove by Elaine Barbeiri
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
When my grandmother introduced me to Harlequin and Silhouette…errr, I mean Romance books.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
Nonfiction Books about Wars
Longest Book You’ve Read:
Either The Plantegenets by Dan Jones or any of the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon
Major book hangover because of:
Heaven and Hell: The Journey of Chris and Serena Davis by Kenneth Zeigler. I needed a few weeks to digest and meditate over the subject matter.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Three – they hold all the books I couldn’t part with; all of them are from my pre-kindle days.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Wings of a Dove by Elaine Barbeiri. In my opinion, the epitome of a romance book.
Preferred Place To Read:
Outside in the shade of a tree.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“Fiction writing is more similar to acting than it is to any other art. It’s about inhabiting a character so completely, you forget yourself.” – Your Writing Teacher, @WritingChief
This isn’t from a book I read, rather it’s from someone I follow on Twitter. I think this is true whether you’re a writer, actor, or reader…if you can’t forget yourself, your problems, your surroundings while you’re reading, then you aren’t reading the right book!
That there are too many books out there to read and I know I will not have enough time to get through them all.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Three of your All-time Favorite Books:
Wings of a Dove, Tomorrow’s Promise, Irish Thoroughbred
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Everyone I’ve listed so far…along with H.C. Elliston, Gemma Halliday, Sabrina Jeffries, Darcy Burke, Sara Ramsey…Seriously, I could go on and on and on…
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Right now I’m so consumed with all the books I have on my TBR list, that I don’t even know what’s being released!
Worst Bookish Habit:
The “just one more page” syndrome.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (I haven’t finished it yet!)
Your latest book purchase:
When I’m Gone by Emily Bleeker
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
