Recently I have really been getting into Goodreads. I started using it to track what I’m reading, as one does, and now I can’t stop. It’s pretty sad, since I only know two other users (BookTubers aside), but still I can’t help myself adding quotes, writing mini reviews, or making my ever growing TBR pile even larger. I was slightly lost as what blog post to write, but then I did a quick search on ‘Goodreads tag’, and tadaaaaa, it exists. The tag isn’t really about Goodreads, it’s more about reading in general, but I decided to do it anyway. So here it is, the Goodreads tag.
- What’s the last book you’ve marked as Read?
Faceless, by Alyssa Scheinmel.
- What’s the last book you’ve marked as Currently Reading?
I am not in the habit of marking books as Currently Reading, but the last book I’ve marked is Pride and Prejudice.
- What’s the last book you’ve marked as To Be Read?
A Madness So Discreet, by Mindy McGinnis.
- What are you planning on reading next?
Winter by Marissa Meyer, I have been putting of the last book in the Lunar Chronicles for way to long, but now I’m actually going to read it. (I just can’t stand the series to end!)
- Do you use the star rating system?
Yes I just wish they would add half’s, because the choice between 3 and 4 stars can be a tough one.
- Do you participate in the 2016 reading challenge?
Yes, but I think I set my goal just slightly too high, since I am permanently 2 books behind, no matter how fast I read.
- Do you have a wish list?
A fictional one, yes. An actual one? I wish (see what I did there 🙂 ).
- Which book do you plan on buying next?
I honestly don’t really know (see previous question), but I am really excited to read the new book by Erin Lange.
- What’s your favorite quote?
I don’t have a favorite quote, there are too many! This might sound really pretentious (and it probably is), but I have the habit of memorizing quotes I like, so I know quite a few. But a favorite? I don’t know: Something by Patrick Ness probably.
- Who are your favorite authors?
Patrick Ness and Becky Albertalli. The latter has only written one book so I don’t have a way of knowing for sure. But if she can write something as awesome as Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, I’m sure she can write anything.
- Are you in any groups on Goodreads?
- What could Goodreads do better?
I love Goodreads, despite it not being perfect. The most important point for me is the star rating system (come on, Goodreads, everyone wants half stars, why don’t you just add them?). I’d also like to be able to use bold and italic in reviews.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post! I am not going to tag anyone because, quite honestly, it’s a lot of work trying to figure out who has done it already and who not, and which people don’t like being tagged and so forth. Despite this feel free to do the tag if you’d like to!
P.s My username on Goodreads is @sophthebookworm , if you use Goodreads your welcome to leave your username down below so we can add each other!
