Author you've read the most books from: Fiction would probably be Janette Oke when I was a teenager. Non-fiction would be C.S. Lewis.
Best sequel ever: I'd have to say 'An Echo in the Darkness' the second book in Francine Rivers, Mark of the Lion Series.
Currently reading: 'Finally Alive' by John Piper. I'm a couple chapters in and it's good so far and 'How should we then live?' by Francis Schaeffer which I'm almost finished and it's excellent! Great book on how mankind has thought through history and it's impact on us today.
Drink of choice while reading: Ice water
E-reader or physical book: Physical book
Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school? LOL...I barely talked to boys in high school!
Glad you gave this book a chance: 'Mere Christianity' by C.S. Lewis. It opened a whole new world to me of theological type books and a different way of thinking in my christian walk. From Lewis to Tozer to Spurgeon... I now love them all. : )
Hidden gem book: 'Humility' by Andrew Murray. Most beautiful book.
Just finished: 'Holy Ghost Girl' by Donna Johnson...an unbelievably sad page-turner of spiritual abuse.
Kind of books you won't read: Anything with the overall theme of horror, the occult, or sexually explicit. I also don't usually choose books that are known for bad theology. I believe what we read can contribute to our overall way of thinking and living. So I stay away from all these kinds of books.
Longest book you've read: 'London' by Edward Rutherfurd. It was over 1100 pages!
Major book hangover because of: Not sure
Number of bookcases you own: Two
One book you read multiple times: I don't usually re-read books, but I did re-read one of my favorites, 'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen.
Preferred place to read: It would be by the ocean, but since I don't have an ocean in my backyard, I usually read on the couch. : )
Quote you like from a book you read: I'm a quote collector, so it's hard to just pick one!
Here's one from Oswald Chambers. A quote that encouraged me to not just believe what I believe, but know what I believe.
"If you cannot express yourself well on each of your beliefs, work and study until you can. If you don't, other people may miss out on the blessings that come from knowing the truth... Always make it a practice to stir your own mind thoroughly to think through what you have easily believed."
Reading regret: Finishing a book I didn't like. I always feel like if I paid for it I should finish it!
Series you started and need to finish: Colleen Coble's 'Mercy Falls' series. I just need to read the last book!
Three of your all time favorite books: Hard to pick only three! You can read my favorite reads HERE
Unapologetic fan-girl for: I don't really think of myself as a fan. When I read I feel like I'm reading something a friend wrote.
Very excited for this release more than all the others: 'Sheba' by Tosca Lee
Worst bookish habit: Leaving books all around the house.
Xmarks the spot: Not sure what this means?
Your latest book purchase: Just bought: 'Jesus > Religion: Why He is so much better than trying harder, doing more, and being good enough' by Jefferson Bethke.
Zzzz snatcher book: Oh boy, I've read a lot of books that kept me up late. Can't think of just one.
This was a lot of fun to put together. If you decide to do a post like this, let me know. I'd love to come by and read your answers! : )
