The Goodreads Tag

1. What was the last book you marked as 'read'?
Carrie by Stephen King. I didn't really enjoy this book to be honest. I thought I would love it but maybe I'm not ready to leave YA behind yet. The broken up style or writing swapping between articles and the actual characters perspective made it feel too choppy for me.
2. What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading The Tempest by Julie Cross. I'm about 1/4 of the way through and I like it. It's a nice, easy read and something I needed after getting through Carrie.
3. What was the last book you marked as 'TBR'?

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I recently finished Beautiful Disaster and loved it so I can't wait to pick up the next one.
4. What book do you plan to read next?

Harry Potter. I haven't read it and I'm ashamed. I am going to remedy it, I promise. 
5. Do you use the star rating system?

I do but I wish you could do half stars.
6. Are you doing a 2014 Reading Challenge?

I am doing a reading challenge. I only set it at 30 books, but I'm already at 14 read and it's only February so I might change it to 50 and see if I can go it.
7. Do you have a wishlist?

I do have a mental wishlist.
8. What book do you plan to buy next?

I think I'm going to get the second book in the Tempest series by Julie Cross or Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire.
9. Do you have any favorite quotes, would you like to share a few?

I don't have any specific favourite quotes. I don't tend to mark down quotes I like from books and I haven't used that feature on Goodreads.
10. Who are your favorite authors?

I have a few favourite authors. I love Richelle Mead and Cassandra Clare. Jay Asher is also great and while Stephenie Meyer might not be the best author ever I like all her books and her Twilight series got me into reading.
11. Have you joined any groups?

I am but I don't really participate in them. I need to start doing that but for now I'm getting used to using it to review books.
12. Are there any questions you would like to add?  

I don't think so. If I had to I would love to know if people use more than the traditional three shelves. I only really use three shelves because if I started categorizing them it would probably be to extreme. 

Thanks for reading, and please link me to your Goodreads Tag, whether that be a blog post or a video.


  1. Def agree on the need for half stars - some books can't be defined so well into full stars I find! I might have to do this tag myself, I do seem to be spending an increasing amount of time on that site for sure!

  2. I hardly use any of the Goodreads features. I think I will start using it more now I am getting into reading (bit late at 27 but hey ho!) :) x

  3. Not seen these Tags before, nice idea.

  4. Good way of finding out a lot in a short space.

  5. This is great! My best friend linked me to it, and I've written a post!

  6. Are you into paper or digital?

  7. And also, what are the pros and cons?

  8. I seem to have taken over this comments section, sorry. :)
