I saw this on Grace @ Rebelmommy Book Blog and thought it was a great idea for a lazy summer day… And as I’m feeling fairly lazy these days, here we go!
Goodreads Book Tag
1. What is the last book you marked as “read?”
The Offer by Karina Halle. I listened to the audiobook, and I absolutely loved it! So much fun to have the Scottish character actually have the Scottish brogue, it made things very interesting!
2. What are you currently reading?
Listening to The Pact by Karina Halle, because more Scots, and also reading Made for Sin by Stacia Kane.
3. What was the last book you marked as “to read?
The Debt, by Karina Halle. But technically, I didn’t mark it as ‘to read’ I marked it as ‘might read one day’ as that’s how I mark the books I don’t own but think I will read. Possibly. One day…
4. What book do you plan on reading next?
I have no idea! I’m really not good at planning which books to read next, as I’m a mood-reader. I have lots of ARCs, and I also have quite a lot of purchased books. Plus, I’m participating in the ‘Read a Series in a Month’ challenge, so I might pick up On the Edge series by Ilona Andrews.
5. Do you use the star rating system?
Yup, I do! and I love my purple stars here on the blog. I really do wish Goodreads would get onboard the half-stars train, though!!
6. Are you doing the 2016 reading challenge?
Yes, and I love that feature on Goodreads! It’s so nice to keep track and to set a goal at the beginning of the year. Even if I’m two books behind right now.
7. Do you have a wishlist?
Yes, but I keep that one on amazon. I guess my ‘might read one day’ shelf on Goodreads is kind of a wishlist as well, but I add all books I think I’d enjoy on there, whereas at amazon I have a list of books I really, really want.
8. What book do you plan on buying next?
Well, I have ‘It Ends With Us’ by Colleen Hoover on pre-order, and it’s out today, so that’s my next bookish purchase 🙂
9. What is your favorite quote?
“Home isn’t where you’re from, it’s where you find light when all grows dark.” – Pierce Brown, “The Golden Son”
“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” – Paulo Coelho, “The Alchemist”
10. Who are your favorite authors?
There are many!! Colleen Hoover, KA Tucker, Richelle Mead, Ashlyn Macnamara, Tiffany Reisz, William Shakespeare, Paulo Coelho, Jill Shalvis, Nalini Singh, Maeve Binchy, Pierce Brown… there are more, but these were just off the top of my head.
11. Are you a part of any Goodreads groups?
Yeah, I’m in the Ilona Andrews fangroup, in a feminist group and in a paranormal group 🙂 I’m not all that good at actually participating in those groups, though.
12. What could Goodreads do better?
Well, I would love half-stars… Plus a way to show re-reading – as I often read a book, and then listen to it as well, and the roundabout way I have to do things just make it more complicated than it needs to be.
