I saw this on Zezee with Books and thought it was a lot of fun and, since I haven’t done a tag in months, it seemed like a great idea to use this to update all of you on what I’m reading or wanting to read.
What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?
Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol – ★★★★
What are you currently reading?
Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
The Constant Princess (The Tudor Court, #1) by Philipa Gregory (on a break right now)
What was the last book you marked as ‘TBR’?
Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies by Lindsay Ribar
What book do you plan to read next?
Ms. Marvel, Vol. 3 (Ms. Marvel, #3) by G. Willow Wilson
Hangsaman by Shirley Jackson
Do you use the star rating system?
I do. I like to make sure I rate things I read on Goodreads (and watch on Netflix), but I wish you could put half a star. I recently gave a book 3 stars and I wish I had been able to give 3.5 stars. Even though I could have just given it 4 stars, I felt like that would be too much. Petition for a half a star?
Are you doing a 2016 Reading Challenge?
This is my 4th year participating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge. My goal is 30 books and I’m currently on number 14.
Do you have a wishlist?
No. I typically don’t keep a list, but I usually only have books on my ‘Want to Read’ that I don’t own, so it can kind of serve as a wishlist.
What book do you plan to buy next?
One of my goals this year was to buy less books, and so far I’m doing a pretty decent job with that. I’m trying to read books that I own instead of buying a new one, or borrowing from the library (physical or e-book) to save money and space. At the moment, the only books I’d buy are Shirley Jackson novels or anything I read as a kid/teen and would love to have for nostalgia.
Do you have any favorite quotes, would you like to share a few?
“Books may well be the only true magic.”
– Alice Hoffman
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”
– Alice Walker
“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”
― Markus Zusak,
Who are your favorite authors?
There are several more, but these are the only ones I have listed on my profile: Sarah Dessen, Megan McCafferty, Shirley Jackson, Sophie Kinsella, Markus Zusak, J.D. Salinger
Have you joined any groups?
One group, though sadly I haven’t been very active and no one has posted this year.
Who do you tag?
You! Please tell me if you do this tag and add me on Goodreads.
