As alot of readers do, I adore Goodreads. In my opinion it is one of the best things ever invented for us readers, as it has honestly improved my reading life so much, and introduced me to so much many amazing books I otherwise wouldn’t have picked up.
Thanks to Atikah @ Oh, Hello Books for tagging for – she has such a gorgeous blog, so go and check it out if you haven’t already!
I just finished Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie a few days ago, and although it took me ages to get through, I did enjoy it. I loved trying to figure out all of the clues, and definitely would never have guessed the ending!
I’m currently about halfway through There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins, and although I am enjoying it at the moment, I definitely am not loving it as much as I thought I would.
Somehow I hadn’t added Eliza and Her Monsters to my TBR yet, despite all the hype surrounding it, and so this was the last one I added.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to continue on with my Halloween reads, and hopefully pick up Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton next. I got this last year for my birthday, and am really excited to finally read it!
Yes! Every single book I read, I will spend hours agonising over how many stars I am going to give it on Goodreads. I am also so desperate for them to introduce half stars, because do they not realise how huge a difference there is between a five star read and a 4.5 star read?
Yes I am! I’ve done the Goodreads challenge for the last few years, and have always set my target for 50 books, and this year is looking to be the first year I actually complete it! So far I’ve read 38 books, and so I am on track to complete my challenge this year, and I have also already read more books this year than I have for the last two years! (can you tell how happy I am about this?!)
I don’t have on exactly, as I more just use my want-to-read shelf as both my TBR and my wishlist, although I am tempted to create another shelf particularly for those books I just can’t wait to get my hands on.
Both All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater and Strange Fire by Tommy Wallach are currently calling out to me, and are two of my most anticipated releases of this year, so I’m pretty sure one of those will end up being my next book buy.
Only a few?!
“Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain.” – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
‘We had yet to learn that the devil created youth so that we could make our mistakes, and that God established maturity and old age so that we could pay for them…’ – The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
‘The best books, they don’t talk about things you never thought about before. They talk about things you’d always thought about, but that you didn’t think anyone else had thought about. You read them, and suddenly you’re a little bit less alone in the world.’ – We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach
Some of my favourites are probably Maggie Stiefvater, Markus Zusak, and David Levithan, although I honestly I have so many its hard to choose!
No, but I’m so desperate to! I can’t believe that I have yet to join a group, but really hope to soon as it just seems like such a fun way to join in with the community and to read some more awesome books.
I feel like a combination of a mood reader and someone who sticks to TBR’s. Sometimes I will just be so desperate to read a certain book that that will instantly become my next read, but then at the same time I do also try to stick somewhat to my last TBR.
I don’t know who has or hasn’t done this tag yet, so I’m just going to tag anyone who wants to do this tag!
