Goodreads Book Tag

 

It’s been a long time since I have done a tag, I find them fun to do but there is just not enough hours in my life to do everything I want to do.*sighs*

I haven’t been tagged by anyone but I saw Kendra @reads and treats post this tag and really wanted to do one myself….so here goes.

What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?

The Moonlight Dreamers

The Moonlight Dreamers by Siobhan Curham – This was a great story about unexpected friendships and it’s so honest and relatable. 4.25/5  stars Review here

What are you currently reading?

We AwakenWhisper to MeA Tyranny of Petticoats: 15 Stories of Belles, Bank Robbers & Other Badass Girls (A Tyranny of Petticoats, #1)

We Awaken by Calista Lynne – I am 50% of the way through this book. I was contacted by the author and asked if I would like to read this. The concept is great and whilst reading it, I keep expecting sexual tension and there is none because they are asexual and I just can’t get my head around it.

Whisper to be my Nick Lake – I am not very far into this book but I am enjoying what I am reading it so far…. I didn’t realise how dark it was going to be. This is quite a fast paced book so shouldn’t take long to read and also I won it in a Goodreads giveaway (I never win anything)

A Tyranny of Petticoats edited by Jessica Spotswood – I have been reading this for a while. I have only read the first story and didnt really like it so I have put it down and not picked it back up again.

What was the last book you marked as TBR?

I am always adding books to my TBR, it will never go down. I currently have over 1500 books on my list and it just keeps growing. I will put the last 3 books.

The FiremanStolen: A Letter to My CaptorStolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)

The Fireman by Joe Hill – Everyone seems to be really liking this book and when I read the synopsis I wanted to  read this myself.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher – I have heard such great things about this book and want to read it for myself.

Stolen Songbird by Danielle L Jensen – This fantasy story sounded like something I would like so I added it.

What book do you plan on reading next?

Once I have finished reading the three I am currently reading, I will be reading Baby doll by Hollie Overton but check back later in the month for my August TBR.

Baby Doll

Do you use the star rating system?

Yep! I use the same as Goodreads except I do halves and sometimes quarters.

Are you doing a 2016 Reading Challenge?

Yep. I am currently 57/75 books so far which I am very happy about. I am reading more due to blogging. I am 15 books ahead of schedule. I may look and changing it soon. I wish I had done other challenges too,I will look out for these in 2017.

Do you have a wish list?

I have a wish list on Amazon but I don’t update that regularly.

What book do you plan to buy next?

Well I have just pre-ordered the illustrated edition of chamber of secrets….but my next purchase could be absolutely anything.

Do you have any favorite quotes? If so, share a few.

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”
Elbert Hubbard

Who are your favorite authors?

This is difficult because I always try to read new authors, so I had a look on Goodreads and these are the authors where I have read most of their books.

J.K. RowlingPhilippa GregorySophie KinsellaCecelia AhernJohn Green

From left to right we have: J.K Rowling,Philippa Greggory, Sophie Kinsella, Cecelia Ahern and John Green.

Now John Green isn’t one of my favourite authors it’s just I have read most of his books trying to find a good one… I don’t understand the hype surrounding this man and his books. They are just full of pretentious teenagers. The only book I haven’t read is looking for Alaska. Is there anyone else out there like me?

Have you joined any groups?

Yep, I have joined:

  • Perustopia book club
  • YA buddy’s reading corner
  • Boxall’s 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die
  • Top 5 Wednesday

Although I don’t use them as much as I should.

Who do you tag?

Anyone and everyone who would like to have a go.

 

Thanks for dropping by
