I totally stole this from Julie Sondra Decker. Check out her answers, too, because she’s super cool. Here are mine:
Author You’ve Read The Most Books From
Dean Koontz. I’d say I’ve read 90 % of his books. He’s my writing mentor and one of the reasons I wanted to become a writer.
Best Sequel Ever
The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien. That’s what popped in my head anyway. 😉
The Dark Between by Sonia Gensler, The Innocent by Harlan Coben and 11/22/63 by Stephen King
Drink of Choice While Reading
Coffee, Diet Coke or water
E-reader or physical book?
Physical books. E-books are great but after looking at a computer and phone screen most of the day, I prefer the *real* books.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School
Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games – something about him really appeals to me.
Glad You Gave This Book a Chance
The Harry Potter series! When I first heard about them, I thought there was no way I would enjoy it but it ended up my favorite book series ever. The movie version of Prisoner of Azkaban is what made me finally want to read them. By the time The Deathly Hallows was released, I had my own wand. I was in my early thirties. LOL
Hidden Gem Book
New Kids on the Block: Five Brothers and a Million Sisters by Nikki Van Noy. It’s the nonfiction story of the best group in the world in my biased opinion. I was almost a part of the book and wish I had written it. I call it a hidden gem because I know only NKOTB fans (Blockheads) are going to read it. I wish that more people would because they would find out how wrong their misconceptions are. And honestly, New Kids have a really great story. They weren’t a manufactured boy band like most people think. Go read it for yourself and see how great they are. 😀
Important Moment in Your Reading Life
When I discovered Harlan Coben. I can’t even remember which book of his I read first. I discovered him in 2012 and realized my writing style is very similar. If his books could be worldwide best sellers and I write the same way, couldn’t mine? I like to think so.
Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read
Harlequin-type romances with six-pack abs on the cover. No disrespect to those who write and read those books but I just can’t.
Longest Book You’ve Read
Probably the unabridged version of The Stand by Stephen King. It’s about 1200 pages. (My answer is the same as Julie’s)
Major Book Hangover Because of
Six Years by Harlan Coben I really enjoyed the voice of Jake and didn’t want it to end.
Number of Bookcases You Own
Including my daughter’s three.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times
Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz
Preferred Place to Read
On the couch with my feet up.
Quote That Inspires You
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. I’ve never been so excited by a premise only to be bitterly disappointed and want to choke the MC by page 50. Sorry, I hate to bash any book but UGH.
Series You Started and Need to Finish (Completed Series Only)
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I started reading the second book, City of Ashes and was disappointed it didn’t hook me right away like City of Bones did.
Three of Your All Time Favorite Books
Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz, Deeper Than the Dead by Tami Hoag and Going Home Again by Abby Cavenaugh (OF COURSE!)
Unapologetic Fangirl Filthy Stalker Of
New Kids on the Block 😀 Oh. You meant an author, right? Probably Dean Koontz and Harlan Coben. Harlan Coben favorited one of my tweets recently and I nearly soiled myself.
Very Excited for This Release More Than All the Others
Is it selfish to say my own book? Because other than that, I’m not sure. Dr. Sleep but it’s already out. I’m very excited for the day when I can get my copy. 🙂
Worst Bookish Habit
Reading so many books at the same time so that I don’t finish any of them within a reasonable amount of time.
X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book
Fear Nothing by Dean Koontz. Shocker it’s a Koontz book! 😉
Your Latest Book Purchase
I bought School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins for my daughter’s birthday. I kinda wanted to read it myself. Hope she likes it.
ZZZ-Snatcher Book (last one that kept you up way too late)
Six Years by Harlan Coben. It’s obvious I loved that book, huh?
Be cool like Julie and I and go take the A to Z Book Survey! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your answers!
