30 Day Book Challenge - Jax Style

Have you noticed some blogs doing this 30 Day Book Challenge meme? We did (via Kelly @ Dandelion Dreams), and wanted to do it ourselves, but not actually blog for 30 straight days. We have other projects and posts coming up, so we decided to post all 30 Days in a survey-like post Monday and Wednesday.

Dani's survey was on Monday and you can read it HERE.
Jax's survey is below....

DAY 1. - A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just end already. – While I enjoyed the House of Night series, it does seem a tad long.
DAY 2. - Favorite side character. – Adrian from Vampire Academy series and Cam from Fallen series
DAY 3. - The longest book you’ve read. – The Bible, but it took years of studying it in college to get through it. Stephen King’s Duma Key took me a few months.
DAY 4. - Book turned into a movie and completely desecrated. – Twilight. The way I envision this book is a whole lot different than the movie portrayed it.
DAY 5. - Your “comfort” book. – On Writing by Stephen King
DAY 6. - Book you’ve read the most number of times.
The Notebook
DAY 7. – A guilty pleasure book.
DAY 8. - Most underrated book.
DAY 9. - Most overrated book.
DAY 10. - A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving.
Marked by the Cast’s
DAY 11. - Favorite classic book.
– To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee and 1984 by George Orwell
DAY 12. - A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t.
Hmm… I think Fracture by Megan Miranda. There’s more, but that’s the one that sticks out.
DAY 13. - A book that disappointed you.
DAY 14. - Book that made you cry.
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
DAY 15. - A character who you can relate to the most.
Hermione Granger
DAY 16. - Most thought-provoking book.
See Day 11
DAY 17. - Author I wish people would read more.
DAY 18. - A book you wish you could live in. Toss up between Hush, Hush and Vampire Academy
DAY 19. - A favorite author. Nicholas Sparks
DAY 20. - Favorite childhood book.
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg 
DAY 21. – Book you tell people you’ve read, but haven’t (or haven’t actually finished). –
Breaking Dawn. I purposely did not read the last few pages because I wasn’t ready for it to end. LOL
DAY 22. - Least favorite plot device employed by way too many books you actually enjoyed otherwise. –
where the MC acts all helpless.
DAY 23. - Best book you’ve read in the last 12 months.
There are way too many to name!
DAY 24. – Book you’re most embarrassed to say you like/liked. – I don’t get embarrassed to admit the books that I enjoy.
DAY 25. - The most surprising plot twist or ending.
DAY 26. – Book that makes you laugh out loud. On Writing  by Stephen King… amazing book, so much useful info in it, and he delivers it with his sense of humor.
DAY 27. - Book that has been on your “to read” list the longest.
See Day 12.
DAY 28. - Favorite quote from a book. "She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars." from Stardust
DAY 29. - A book you hated.
I’m not going to “out” it on here, because I don’t agree with that, but I will say I felt duped by one book. The sample chapters were amazing, then I bought the book, and it went downhill with the editing and plot… as in non-existent.
DAY 30. - Book you couldn’t put down.
Wait For You by J. Lynn

Thanks for reading! ~Jax
