Bout of Books Challenge - Bookish Survey

Good morning everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of Bout of Books!


Lori from Writing My Own Fairy Tale is hosting a giveaway today and the first Bout of Books challenge --- a survey! I do love surveys. 

1. How do you organize your shelves? 

Well since 90% of my books are on Kindle, I don't have too much of an organization issue. I have physical copies of my absolute favorite books and they are organized in the most boring way ever -- by size.

2. What is one of your favorite books that is not one of your favorite genres?

Good question! My favorite genre is YA Contemporary and my favorite outside of that genre is a mystery and thriller. It is You: A Novel by Caroline Kepnes. I LOVED this book so, so much!!


3. What is the last 5 star book you read? 

Just this morning, I finished Cress by Marissa Meyer. Holy crap, I love that series and can't believe I have to wait for November for the conclusion.



4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon?

Now that I have finished Cress, I am very excited to read Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers. I loved All The Rage and this one gets great reviews as well.


5. What book do you recommend the most?

Hands down, one of my favorite books is Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. It is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read! 

What was your last 5 star read? What book are you most excited to read next (whether you are participating in the read-a-thon or not)?

  6. Cress was amazing, I am way too excited for Winter, also a little bit nervous. 800 pages? So many things can happen in such a long book. I need to read a book by Courtney Summers, I've heard amazing things. Happy reading! :)

    1. You are so right Isa. I am so nervous about the length of Winter. I have a feeling I will be on the edge of my seat the entire time! And yes, you need to read Courtney Summers. Both books I have read by her are AMAZING!!

  10. At this moment, I also only buy my absolutely favourite books - I've no shelves to put them. So, I've been reading a lot more ebooks and they really don't take much space. =P

    Happy readings! :)

    1. Yep, not needing a bunch of space is an awesome pro of the Kindle. I moved last year and it was a breed without hundreds of books.

  11. Ooh, I WANT to read The Sea of Tranquility. I've got my fingers crossed that my library gets it someday. XD And Cress?! ERMAGERD MARISSA MEYER IS A GENIUS. I can't even understand how she balances so many plots and writes them all so delicious so they tie up like that. She is a MASTER. I want Winter so so bad. XD

    1. Cait, after reading Cress I can agree with you that MARISSA MEYER IS A GENIUS!! Each book just gets better and better so I can't even wait to get Winter. And yes you MUST read Sea of Tranquility! That's an order! ha
