The Goodreads Book Tag

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’?

cover empire of storms

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?

cover sisterhood of the travelling pants

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.

My tags:

RiverMoose @ RiverMoose Reads

Amy @ Every Book You Need to Read and More

Annike and Zoë @ Twin Tales

Eve @ Twist in the Tale

And you, if you want to do it!

  1. Great answers for this tag! I don’t have a Goodreads for my blog yet either, and at the moment I use my personal one just to keep track of what books I’ve read and what ones I have yet to read, not to review or anything. I LOVED Empire of Storms, but yeah my heart was not the same after the ending, oh god why does the last book have to be so far away from its release date!
    Also I really hope you enjoy Blood for Blood and Gemina as well. My copy of Gemina should be arriving soon and I just cannot wait to get my hands on it! I’m hoping to start Blood for Blood soon too but I hope you really enjoy both books! 😀

  2. Great answers! Once you started mentioning Megan Whalen Turner I started to run away because ARGH I still haven’t gotten to Thief yet 😩 I promise I am trying, I just have so many damn books. Also yay for buying Blood for Blood next, I can’t wait to read it!

    • It’s okay! I am the worst at taking recommendations, so I 110% cannot blame you.
      I am so excited for Blood for Blood. The ending of the other book took me completely by surprise so I cannot wait to see where the rest of the story goes!

  3. I’ve got to admit that I laugh a little every time I see The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, because the first time I heard of it I didn’t realise that it was TROUSER pants. And not, like, ‘underwear’ pants. *winces* Anyways, AAH EMPIRE OF STORMS WRECKED ME. And I seriously need to read Wolf by Wolf; it sounds awesome. Thanks for tagging me! 🙂
