So no one actually tagged me in this but I saw my girl Sara @thebookcycle do this and I thought it was cool and wanted to do it too! Also I figured it’d be somewhat of an apology for not posting any new reviews this week. In my defence, I unexpectedly got sick this week so my poor head couldn’t handle any reading this week. I’ll make it up to you guys somehow, I promise! Anyways, let’s get to the tag game!
WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU MARKED AS READ?
The last book I marked as read was Reign of Serpents by Eleanor Herman and I loved it so much. I’ve been invested in this series for a couple of years now and I’m glad that it continues to be great. I can’t believe I have to wait another year for the final book, ugh!
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
Currently, I’m reading Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova. I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for months and I’m finally in the right mood and mindset to read it. That, and I asked my friends on Twitter to pick a book for me to read and they all picked this one! It’s pretty interesting so far and I’m loving all this brujas-witchiness which I’ve never read about before so I’m hoping it turns out to be a good read.
WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO READ NEXT?
Oh lord, I’m not sure! I have so many books that I want to read but I think I might read It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover next. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this book and this author (except for one book that my friend absolutely hated and warned me not to read) so it should be interesting. Or I might cave and reread Angelfall by Susan Ee because I’ve been dying to read that again.
DO YOU USE THE STAR RATING SYSTEM?
I do! My ratings are mostly based on my overall enjoyment of the book so if I love everything about the book and had a great time reading it I won’t hesitate to give it 5 stars. But there are also times where I focus more on being critical especially when there are things I both like and dislike about the book. I also tend to give half stars when I can’t decide between something like a 3 stars or 4 stars rating and it’s killing me how Goodreads still doesn’t have that option. I’m also not afraid to be petty with my stars. *evil grin*
ARE YOU DOING A 2017 READING CHALLENGE?
Of course I am! Last year I thought that making my challenge 50 books would be enough but I ended up changing it because I kept reading so much so this year I wanted to push myself and read 70. I remember at the beginning of the year I was so stressed out because I fell behind by like 3 books and only managed to read one or two books in January so I thought “oh my god, I’m not going to reach my goal!! What do I do?!?!” I may have “cheated” a bit and added a couple rereads JUST to calm myself down since Goodreads now lets us count rereads in our challenges, but once I got ahead of myself I decided not to count them until I reach my goal. I think I’m gonna make it at this rate.
DO YOU HAVE A WISHLIST?
Uh not really? I mean there are a bunch of books that I want to have in physical copy if that’s what you’re asking, like the Kick, Push series and Falling Away by Penelope Douglas. Oh, but I also really want Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken (maybe if I mention it enough here I’ll finally get it!!) and Heartless by Marissa Meyer. Still don’t know why I don’t have that one yet.
WHAT BOOK ARE YOU PLANNING ON BUYING NEXT?
Ooh, that’s a good question. I think I might buy Broken Prince and Twisted Palace by Erin Watt since I’m on a bit of an Erin Watt kick. Or if I end up reading The Jewel by Amy Ewing soon and end up liking it then I’ll buy the next book in that series.
DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVOURITE QUOTES?
I do!! I have a bunch saved on Goodreads but here are some of my favourites:
- “But you’re the only one, Scarlet. You’ll always be the only one.” — Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
- “You are crazy,” he says. “You are a crazy, amazing girl. And you scare the hell out of me.” — The Archived by Victoria Schwab
- “Awww, look at him, G, he’s so precious when he’s sleeping.”
“Like an angel.”
“A really slutty angel.” — The Score by Elle Kennedy
- “You are not the world, but you are everything that makes the world good. Without you, my life would still exist, but that’s all it would manage to do.” — The One by Kiera Cass
- “Get up, Shahrzad al-Khayzuran. You kneel before no one. Least of all me.” — The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
- “You’re not Fallen are you?”
“From everything I’ve heard, that would just make me more sexy to you Daughters of Men. What is it that you all see in bad boys?” — World After by Susan Ee
WHO ARE YOUR FAVOURITE AUTHORS?
My favourite authors are Victoria Schwab, Leigh Bardugo, Renee Ahdieh, Kristen Callihan, Emma Chase, and Alexandra Bracken. I will read pretty much anything by these authors.
HAVE YOU JOINED ANY GROUPS?
I did once but I never really participated in it plus the notifications kept bugging me so I left it and decided that groups aren’t really for me.
Well, there you have it! That was a fun little game. I’m not going to tag anyone specific but if anyone sees this and wants to do it go right ahead! And, as always, you are more than welcome to friend me on Goodreads!!
