A-Z Bookish Survey!

Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-Turner had an awesome idea and came up with an A-Z bookish survey! All the questions are book related and correspond to a letter of the alphabet. If you want to participate, visit Jamie's original post here and comment and leave her a link to your post!

Quote That Inspires You/Gives You All the Feels From a Book You've Read:
“I know at that moment what he's given me and it isn't a chair. It's an invitation, a welcome, the knowledge that I am accepted here. He hasn't given me a place to sit. He's given me a place to belong.”
Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility

“I will love myself, and my body, for what it can do- because it is strong enough to lift, to walk, to ride a bicyle up a hill, to embrace the people I love and hold them fully, and to nurture a new life. I will love myself because I am sturdy. Because I did not -will not- break.”
Jennifer Weiner, Good in Bed  

Reading Regret:
I have a tendency to avoid books I think will make me feel sad or cry, and I really shouldn't (especially since the ones that do make me cry seem to come out of nowhere anyway).

Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
(just need to read the last one!)

Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Myra McEntire! She was the first author I ever met and she is the epitome of awesome!

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Panic by Lauren Oliver. I love her writing so I can't wait to see what she'll do next!

Buying books! I have plenty I need to read but I can't stop buying more!
