Bookish Fun: A to Z Tag

I wanted to post something a bit more exciting today, something different than my usual new on my bookshelf's or book reviews. So I googled 'fun bookish surveys' and the first result that popped up was one created by The Perpetual Page Turner. If you want to do this too, then I tag YOU! Link me in the comments or on my social media to your post so I can go and check it out :)
On y va.

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Sophie Kinsella, and I think Louise Rennison comes second!

Best Sequel Ever:

You know, I really enjoyed the sequel to Pollyanna, and still remember fond memories from reading it back in my early high school days. 

Currently Reading:

Nothing! I just finished a book yesterday, and I haven't chosen what I'll read next. 

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Tea or water. There's nothing better than water sometimes. Other times, there's nothing better than tea. Rooibos tea, specifically.

E-reader or Physical Book?


Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Oooh. Actually, no one springs to mind. Literally. Can't name a soul. Also, I'm thinking about an ideal world, where someone would have actually wanted to date me in high school. 

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone. Because DOY.

Hidden Gem Book:

A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty

Reading a whole novel start to finish in one day, for the first time (and I think, for the only time, so far!) - that book was Finding Cassie Crazy by Jaclyn Moriarty.

Anywhere cozy and quiet.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“I love my mom so much. I don't care if that's corny to say. I think on my next birthday, I'm going to buy her a present. I think that should be the tradition. the kid gets gifts from everybody, and he buys one present for his mom because she was there too. I think that would be nice." - The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

Reading Regret:

Giving up not finishing a lot of classics that I needed to read for school/uni, instead of sticking them out and finishing them like a real man. lolz. no but srsly. I didn't even DISLIKE Jane Eyre and I haven't finished it yet. Same with Dracula.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians. It's on the top of my TBR, don't worry!

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

I can't remember! These days I just love sleeping more than most things in life. I can't remember the last time I stayed up til crazy o'clock reading a book. It's been too long.
