a to z bookish survey (in which I do a tag)

I had really planned to do a bit of an introduction-like post to my life as a reader (why I love it, what my favourite genre/s is/are, etc.) and then one about my life as a writer (why I love it, my stories, etc.) except life isn't going to go as I thought this week (read: life is crazy and I may possibly be stressing out too much, haha.) So today I'm doing the A to Z Bookish Survey, which I found on The Perpetual Page-Turner. (My brain's reasoning is something like: Do a tag because you can answer a couple of questions between each school subject/load of washing/meal.)

AtoZsurvey:
A: Author you've read the most from ... I think it's a tie between C.S. Lewis, Ann M. Martin, and L.M. Montgomery. I've read all the Narnia books, all the Main Street series, and a lot of L.M. Montgomery. This goes back to life when I was like twelve, by the way.
B: Best sequel ever ... Honestly don't know. I obviously read too many standalones or lackluster sequels. : )
C: Currently reading ... A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth. It's huge, people. Over 1000 pages. Oh dear.

D: Drink of choice while reading ... Maybe water or tea or whatever I'm drinking at the time. Or maybe nothing because I'm scared I'll spill it on my book.
E: E-reader or physical book ... Um, I don't really use e-readers a lot. Even so, I'd have to say physical books are my preference. They're more personal, you know.
F: Fictional character you would have actually dated in High School ... Now that's hard. Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables)?
G: Glad you gave this book a chance ... Invisible by Cecily Anne Paterson. Like you have no idea how glad. ; )
H: Hidden gem book ... Pat of Silver Bush by L.M. Montgomery. My sister and I bought it from a second-hand shop years ago and I only read it last year. It was so sweet and I loved it.
I: Important moment in your reading life ... Learning to read. (Duh.) Discovering Goodreads. Reading Penny from Heaven by Jennifer L. Holm, which inspired me to write historical fiction.
J: Just finished reading ... I finished When We Collided by Emery Lord almost a week ago. (Still counts, I suppose.)
K: Kinds of books you won't read ... Paranormal and horror, mostly because I reckon I'd get too scared, haha.
L: Longest book you've read ... Does A Suitable Boy count even though I haven't finished it? If not, The Book Thief which was like 550 pages.
M: Major book hangover because of ... The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock was so beautiful it ruined me for other books. (At least for a while.)
N: Number of book cases you own ... Only one. : ( It's packed full though. I dream of having a whole room full one day.
O: One book you have read multiple times ... Unfortunately, I can't think of a specific book, but I feel like there's been several over the years.
P: Preferred place to read ... On my bed or in the sunshine.
Q: Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you've read ... “I think I'm a bit in love with these girls. They make me feel giddy. Like I haven't a care in the world. Like I'm fearless. Like I used to be.” - Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta. For me, the feels in this book, are in the friendships.
R: Reading regret ... Not properly discovering the world of MG fiction until I was kinda out of the age group. *sigh*
S: Series you started and need to finish ... Jaclyn Moriarty's Ashbury/Brookfield series. I read the first book earlier this year and there's three more so, YAY!
T: Three of your all-time favourite books ... The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Swipe by Evan Angler, and Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
U: Unapologetic fangirl for ... I honestly can't pick just one, haha.
V: Very excited for this release more than all the others ... Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith because it sound so interesting. 
W: Worst bookish habit ... Not writing a review for ages after I read the book. Seriously need to work on that. Also reading more than one book at the same time; I can't help it.
X: X marks the spot (start at the top left of your shelf and pick the twenty-seventh book) ... Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. : )
Y: Your latest book purchase ... Con Carino, Amalia by Alma Flor Ada & Gabriel M. Zubizarreta, a middle-grade novel I bought to practice my Spanish reading skills.
Z: Zzz-snatcher book (last book that kept you up way too late) ... Uh, mind blank! Sorry!
