Goodreads Book Tag

I've been seeing the Goodreads Book Tag going around lately and even though I haven't been personally tagged, I wanted to do it anyway because it seemed like fun!

What was the last book you marked as read?

What are you currently reading?

What do you plan to read next?

Do you use the star rating system?
Yes, but I wish Goodreads used half-stars, since that's what I use on the blog; sometimes I don't know whether to round up or down when I'm cross-posting reviews!

Are you doing a 2017 reading challenge?
Yes, I set a goal of 110 books.

Do you have a wish list?
Yes, but I keep it on Amazon and my TBR is on Pinterest.

What book do you plan to buy next?
I'm not sure.  I've been trying to limit the amount of books I buy; it will either be something I've read, loved, and want to have in my personal library OR a pre-order from one of my favorite authors, whichever comes first!

Do you have any favorite quotes?

I only have one quote tagged on Goodreads and that's:

"Courage, dear heart." - C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Who are you favorite authors?
Kate Morton and Emily Giffin are auto-buys for me.  I also love JK Rowling and George R.R. Martin.

Have you joined any groups?
No, I haven't gotten too much into the social aspect of Goodreads, except for checking out the statuses of my friends.

If anyone else feels like doing this tag, I'd love to read your answers!


  1. I used to be on Goodreads all the time and part of groups. Then I got busy with life and everything and I just don't have the time anymore. I still use the site though every day to research books.

    1. Yes, I use it to find new books all the time and also to read reviews.

  2. Great tag! I've only recently started getting into using Goodreads properly. I used to use it to keep track of my TBR and that was about it but recently I've actually be writing reviews on there and interacting with people and I'm really enjoying it!

    1. Yeah, it's definitely fun to see what other people are reading and what they're thinking about the books as they go along!

  3. The River at Night- for some reason I love that cover. This is a fun tag. :) I don't do much on Goodreads either, although I'd like to more.

    Love the Dawn Treader quote!

    1. Yes, it's a very striking cover! I feel like if I got more into the social aspect of Goodreads, I could lose hours on it!

  4. Cool tag! What an interesting one!

    I also wish half stars were a thing... :s

    If that's the only quote you have it's a good one!!

  5. YASS FOR HALF-STARS! It's so hard to round up to a whole number at times :/
    And what a fun tag! Might do it soon :)


I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are always greatly appreciated!
