I was tagged by Kirstie @ Upside-Down Books! Now, I don’t actually use Goodreads, for reasons that I’ll explain in a discussion post when I finally get around to writing it. I have an account, but I basically only use it to keep track of random TBR books. Still, I love book tags, so I’m doing this one, I just have to tweak my answers a bit.
What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?
Like Kirstie, I just finished Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas and I AM NOT OKAY. If you’ve read that book, then you understand the broken mess that my heart is right now.
What are you currently reading?
Needing something happy after EOS, I’m reading The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I read the book a while ago and I am having fun rediscovering the world (and it’s nice to read something that isn’t physically painful).
What was the last book you marked as TBR?
Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes was the last book I marked as TBR on Goodreads. I think I read a really positive review of it.
What book do you plan to read next?
I’m a total mood reader, so it’s hard to know. I’ll probably continue the Traveling Pants series.
Do you use the star rating system?
Again, I don’t review books on Goodreads, but on my blog I use a star rating system that is basically the same as Goodreads (though I use half stars). So yes, kind of.
Are you doing a 2016 Reading Challenge?
I didn’t start a challenge officially with Goodreads, but I have unofficially set a goal of 60 books for myself. That’s less than I’ve done in previous years, but considering 2016 contained AP season for my junior year AND college application season, I knew that this year would not be a great reading year for me.
Do you have a wishlist?
No. I usually just randomly buy books when I’m in the mood for it. It would probably be a good idea for me to keep a wishlist. As it is, I basically have a random list in my head and a (very inaccurate) TBR list on Goodreads.
What book do you plan to buy next?
I am mostly focused on buying/preordering sequels right now. I want Blood for Blood and Gemina most, and I’ll probably buy them soon.
Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few.
Oh, I have so many favorite quotes. Don’t get me started…but now that you have, here are a few:
- “I do not want to pass the time. I want to grab hold of it and leave my mark upon the world.” — The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
- “She wasn’t interested in telling other people’s futures. She was interested in going out and finding her own.” — The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
- “If I am the pawn of the gods, it is because they know me so well, not because they make my mind up for me.” — The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
Apparently all of my go-to favorite quotes right now have to do with destiny/choice.
Who are your favorite authors?
Again, I have a lot of favorite authors. The three I just quoted—Libba Bray, Maggie Stiefvater, and Megan Whalen Turner—will always hold a special place in my heart.
Have you joined any groups?
Nope. I would have to remember Goodreads exists more than once a month for that to work, probably.
