So, I was tagged by the wonderful Grace @The Girl Upstairs! Thanks Grace! ❤
The Goodreads Tag!
What was the last book you marked as ‘Read’?
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, which I reviewed here. This was a wonderful book; I highly recommend it!
What are you currently reading?
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. My mother and I are both reading Wuthering Heights for a book club that we want to do, and so far it’s good, if a bit hard to get in to. Thirteen Chairs is fabulous─spine tingling and chilly and not something that you would want to read at night! Then, of course, there is good ol’ Harry Potter; this is probably my fiftieth re-read of those ABSOLUTELY AMAZING books.
What was the last book you marked as ‘To Read’?
The Red Notebook by Antione Laurain. I have no idea how this is─I was just wandering the pages of Goodreads and found it.
Do you use the star system?
Absolutely I do! Although I have to admit that I tend to over-rate things: for instance, sometimes I’m so caught up in the thrall of a good book that when I go to rate it on Goodreads I give it five stars when maybe it should have only been a three or a four.
Are you doing the 2017 Reading Challenge?
Yes! My goal at this time is 100, but I’ve already read 85 so I’m sure I’ll be changing that soon.
Do you have a wishlist?
OF COURSE I DO! My family always gets annoyed with me when it comes time for holidays because the only things I ever ask for are books! I have a HUGE weakness for bookstores, and it’s very rare that I leave one without two or more new books in my arms. Right now, some of the main things that I want are The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro (this is the sequel to A Study In Charlotte, a modern retelling of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I am completely obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, but more on that in another post) and The Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.
Who are your favorite authors?
*Takes deep breath* Boy, oh boy. This is a hard one. You ready?
- Jane Austen (I LOVE Pride and Prejudice, as Grace and Bella know).
- Diana Wynn Jones
- W.R. Gingell
- Gail Carson Levine
- Marissa Meyer
- Sharon Cameron
- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
- K.M. Shea
- Neil Gaiman
- Sherwood Smith
- Patricia C. Wrede
And I have to stop now because this is getting ridiculous.:D
Have you joined any groups?
How many Goodreads Shelves do you have?
3: read, currently-reading, and to-read.
Well, here’s the thing… I’m fairly new to the whole blogging scene, as you all know, so I don’t really know anyone that hasn’t been tagged already. However; I’d like to put it out there that if you’re reading this post, then I officially tag you! BAM! TAGGED EDEN STYLE!
Well alrighty then! Read on, lovelies!
