Sisterhood Round 2!

So,,, I've already done this tag/award nomination once a few weeks ago but I was tagged again and thought I'd at least answer the questions since they're different!

I was tagged for this by the awesome Jillian @ Jillian's Books and she has given me the following questions, thanks Jillian!
1. Top 3 favorite bookish quotes of all time? 

"I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.” 
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

 Every person you meet is waging his or her own war against a callous universe that is plotting against them. And we are all battle-weary. ― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Inferno

“Just... isn't giving up allowed sometimes? Isn't it okay to say, ‘This really hurts, so I’m going to stop trying’?”
“It sets a dangerous precedent.”
“For avoiding pain?”
“For avoiding life.” 

2. Have you ever cried or have felt depressed when finishing a good book? Of course! All the time. I get major book hangovers, especially after reading the last in a favorite series.

3. What author would you like to meet most of all? Rick Riordan. He is my all time favorite author and the one that reading his books really made me discover my love of writing.

4. Favorite childhood book? I don't know. I feel like I answer this question a lot and give a different answer every time! I'm going with The BFG for now.

5. Have you been a life-long reader or have just started reading recently? Neither. I've kind of always read, but I didn't fall in love with reading and start reading all the time until I was about 12.

6. Any book that you absolutely despise? Hmm. Not that I can think of at the moment. I completely despise the ending(epilogue) of Pendragon by D.J. MacHale and kind of hate the whole last book.... But that's all I can think of.

7. Turn to page 91 of a book nearest to you and type a quote from the first paragraph. New students at Hogwarts were sorted into Houses by trying on the sorting hat, which shouted out the House they were best suited to(Gyrphondor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherein). -Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban(which I was reading when I wrote this as part of my Harry Potter Christmas re-read)

8. Do you prefer reading in the quiet or with music/people? I prefer reading while music is playing. I have a horrible time concentrating when around other people, and silence sucks.

9. Thickest and thinnest book you own? Thinnest? Since I'm not near my shelves at the moment I'm going with my kindle...what it's super thin and has lots of books!

Thickest is probably one in the Harry Potter books.

10. What is the most stressful book you've ever read? I'm gonna say Crimson Crown because it's re first one that popped into my head!

So, I'm not going to be tagging anyone because I've already done all that but if you want to answer some of the questions in the comments that'd be awesome! For instance, what's the last book that gave you a book hangover? And what's the most stressful book you've read?

  1. I like the Inferno quote, I hadn't heard of that book before. It would be so fun to meet Rick Riordan! I tune out the world when I read, so it doesn't matter what is going on as long as people don't expect me to talk back. I'm sure there have been others, but the book that gave me the worst book hangover this year was Ruin and Rising. The most stressful book was Red Rising, because it's so intense and I knew anyone could die.
