I saw this tag while perusing Jesse’s blog Books at Dawn. Here’s his tag post. Since I haven’t done a tag in awhile, I thought this would be a fun one to do!
I am an avid user of Goodreads, especially to find new books and keep track of ones that I want to read. I remember when I would have lists upon lists of books that I wanted. It drove my mother crazy back then.
Even though I wasn’t tagged, here it is!
The Questions …
What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?
The last book that I marked as read was The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. I finished it about a week ago.
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. I cannot wait to finish it!
What was the last book you marked as TBR?
The last book that I marked as TBR is The Big Sheep: A Novel by Robert Kroese. It’s a recommended book based on the fact that I’m currently reading Dark Matter.
What book do you plan to read next?
I don’t usually plan out what books I’m going to read and what order. However, I have a review copy of The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis that I really want to read next/soon.
Do you use the star rating system?
I do use the star rating system on Goodreads, however, I do not use this kind of system for my own reviews on this blog.
Are you doing a 2016 Reading Challenge?
I am! This is my first year doing it and wasn’t sure how much I was going to be able to read, so I only pledged to read 50 books. I am now at 91 books out of 50 books read. Real surprising for me!
Do you have a wishlist?
Nope! Though I do make one for Christmas to make it easier for family rather than just saying ‘books’.
What book do you plan to buy next?
Oh man. So many! Since I went a little book buying crazy this year, I don’t really plan on buying any more until I’ve read the majority of the unread books I already own. However, I do really want to buy when I can is My Last Continent by Midge Raymond.
Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few.
Oh there are so many! I might overshare, but these authors really know how to use the pen as their voice to impart wisdom upon their readers:
If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content. – Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
There is no perfection only life. – Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that. – Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
Destiny is usually just around the corner. Like a thief, a hooker, or a lottery vendor: its three most common personifications. But what destiny does not do is home visits. You have to go for it. – Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The Shadow of the Wind
I will never, ever regret the things I’ve done. Because most days, all you have are places in your memory that you can go to. – JoJo Moyes, Me Before You
Man, when you lose your laugh you lose your footing. – Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Who are your favorite authors?
Favorite authors, let’s see … The ones to come off the top of my head right away are:
- Carlos Ruiz Zafon
- John Twelve Hawks
- Sarah Dessen
- Patricia Briggs
- Ernest Cline
- Jenny Colgan
I love the fact that I have favorite authors from different genres!
Have you joined any groups?
I’ve joined a couple, but I find that I don’t have time to partake in them. Maybe in the future sometime.
This was a fun tag! I’m glad I found it. Because I wasn’t tagged myself, I’m tagging anyone that wants to do this tag. Can’t wait to see other’s answers!
P.S. I discovered my featured image from Brianna on her own Goodreads Book tag post on her blog Paperback Bri.
