2016 End of the Year Survey

2016 End of the Year Survey
Posted on December 31, 2016 in Survey / 0 Comments

It feels weird doing an End of the Year Survey when I hardly remember what I read! As per usual I did all my reading at the beginning of the year and read almost nothing in the second half. So now I have to go back and remember it all! I had started doing a Bookish Awards post giving “awards” to books based on what they did well, but since that only encapsulated a few months’ worth of books I can’t really go off of that for this post. So I’ll have a look at […]

The 2016 Bookies: The Ultimate Bookish Awards Ceremony

The 2016 Bookies: The Ultimate Bookish Awards Ceremony
Posted on January 22, 2016 in Survey / 0 Comments

This is my idea for a different sort of End of the Year survey! We’ll be doing it award-ceremony-style. I talked a little about this in last year’s End of the Year survey, but I’ll sum up the main points here. The awards are going to be Bookies. (Like Grammys or Oscars.) “Oh, that book? Yeah, I think I gave it a Bookie last year for best contemporary romance.” Isn’t that cute? I think it’s a cute name for an award. (And it rhymes with cookies.) Fun fact: bookie apparently means bookmaker, which could have […]

2015 End of the Year Book Survey + goals for my blog next year

2015 End of the Year Book Survey + goals for my blog next year
Posted on December 24, 2015 in Survey / 2 Comments

Hello everyone! Despite my really poor memory of all 100 books I read this year so far, I’m going to attempt to fill this out. I’ll be going mainly based on reviews and ratings (with the help of Goodreads too) along with what I can remember. It’s especially hard this year because I took a nice long break over the summer from reading. Or maybe that’s a good thing? Because if I had read more books this past summer, I would have more books to remember and…subsequently…forget. Hmm. Well, either way, I don’t remember the books I […]

2014 End of the Year Survey
Posted on January 7, 2015 in Survey / 4 Comments

  Better late than never! This is my second year doing this survey, courtesy of Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner. And of course I could have done it in early December, but I read like crazy the last couple weeks in order to reach my goal of 100 books. So I’m filling it out now, in early January. Reading Stats Number of books read: 103 out of a goal of 100 Number of re-reads: 16 Genre read most: Obviously I read a lot of young adult books, and apparently middle grade as well (I was trying […]

Bookish Survey: The Fairytale Survey

Bookish Survey: The Fairytale Survey
Posted on July 31, 2014 in Survey / 0 Comments

Another survey, yay! This one is thanks to Mel from The Daily Prophecy, who was inspired by Jasmine from Flip That Page (the queen of surveys, basically), which is no surprise. PART 1. CLASSIC PRINCESSES. Pinocchio – The boy whose nose grows when he lies.Is there are book you lie about, because you feel ashamed for liking it? Twilight. I actually enjoyed it the first time I read it, but I read it when I was a lot younger and I hadn’t heard any of the bad hype it got. This was way before the […]

Another fun survey by Jasmine from Flip That Page! See Part 1 here. See my Harry Potter Survey Part 1 and Part 2 here. Disctrict 1: Cashmere and Gloss Favorite fictional siblings: I have to agree with her on this one- Fred and George Weasley. They were always so funny. District 2: Cato Favorite bad boy character: Um, Cato. (blushes) I know, he’s not really anything more than a killing machine. But if he had a heart, I’d be all into that power/muscle combo. I find physical power attractive. District 3: Beetee and Wiress Favorite genius/geeky character: The first one I can think of is Atticus […]

Bookish Survey: Book Superlatives

Bookish Survey: Book Superlatives
Posted on January 13, 2014 in Survey / 0 Comments

Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner created this survey in August 2013. From her post: While I was making my Meet YA Jamie post I was perusing through my yearbooks obviously and had to chuckle at the senior superlatives. This week I’m using the notion of “senior superlatives” from our yearbooks and making some for you to award books and characters!   Original post: http://www.perpetualpageturner.com/2013/08/friday-fun-time-again-book-superlatives.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=friday-fun-time-again-book-superlatives To make it easier on myself, I’m only using books I read in 2013. Note: I skipped questions I couldn’t find a good enough answer to. Characters Most Likely To Change The World Racath […]

Bookish Survey: Harry Potter Spells Pt. 2

Bookish Survey: Harry Potter Spells Pt. 2
Posted on January 5, 2014 in Survey / 1 Comment

This survey was created by Jasmine at Flip That Page.From her site: So how does it work? Basically, it’s a survey of sorts, where I give you a certain spell from the Harry Potter series, and you answer with the title of a book you’d like to cast the spell on. The first one, Reparo, for example, is all about… well, repair. So you answer me with a book you’d like ‘repaired’ in a way—a book that you thought could have had more potential if it was just tweaked up a bit here and there. Pretty […]
