THE GOODREADS BOOK TAG

May 24, 2018



Hello friends!

It has been so long since I last spoke to you. As you can see, I've been posting back to back book reviews on my blog, and while I love writing them, I sometimes need to take a break and give you guys other types of book content.

I love tags because their a quick and fun way to get to know someone through only a few questions. I think I've done one tag on my blog before, but I'm going to shoot to do at least 2 a month! Let me know if you have any that you want me to do in the comments below! As for today, I saw Nikki over at Book Allure do The Goodreads Tag and I really liked the questions, so imma do it too :)

What was the last book you marked as "read"?

To All the Boys I've Loved Before. I really enjoyed reading this book, and rated it 4/5 stars. It was such a quirky, cute, light-heart read that had just the right amount of teenage drama. I already bought P.S. I Still Love You because I need more Lara Jean and Peter!

What are you currently reading?

Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino. I totally picked this book up on a whim. I skim read the synopsis on Goodreads, trusted some of my favorite reviewers ratings on it, and purchased it a few months back. I just started reading it, so I don't have much to say yet, but follow me on my Goodreads for updates!

I know on my Goodreads profile it says that I'm currently reading like 3 other books, but it's just books that I've started but just haven't finished yet. I'm not actively reading them at the moment, whoops

What was the last book you marked as TBR?

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

What book do you plan to read next?

I'm trying to delve deeper into my relationship with God, so I plan to pick up How's Your Soul by Judah Smith. I haven't read a self help/spiritual book in a while so I'm actually really excited!

AND

Because I tend to read nonfiction books with a fiction book, I plan on reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas alongside How's Your Soul. I've been saying I'd read this book for MONTHS now, and I finally just bought it, and once it arrives in the mail, I'm diving in. 

Do you have a star rating system?

For the most part, yes. Rating a book is always a struggle for me though because how I feel about some books change over time, and a 5/5 star book might actually be 3/5 stars after some more thought. 

Are you doing a 2018 Reading Challenge?

Yes I am! I love keeping track of everything I read and setting reading goals for myself at the beginning of the year. This year I set a goal of 12 books, which equates to a book a month. I know it's small, but I've been in and out of reading slumps since last year, and I don't want to disappoint myself if I set a goal too high and not being able to reach it. I'm hoping I'll surpass this goal though by the end of the year!

Do you have a wishlist?

YES. And my wallet does not support it. A few books that are at the top of my list are:

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover
After You by Jojo Moyes

Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few. 

I know it says share a few, but there's just too many gems out there for me only have a few. I did my best okay. 

“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.
“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.
“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.”
― Renee Ahdieh, The Wrath and the Dawn

You only get one life. It's actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.
― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

Push yourself. Don't Settle. Just live well. Just LIVE.
― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

“This dangerous girl. This captivating beauty.
This destroyer of worlds and creator of wonder.”
― Renee Ahdieh, The Wrath and the Dawn

So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

As long as we don't have magic, they will never treat us with respect. They need to know we can hit them back. If they burn our homes, we burn theirs, too.
― Tomi Adeyemi, Children of Blood and Bone

You are scored on my heart,Clark. You were from the first day you walked in,with your ridiculous clothes and your complete inability to ever hide a single thing you felt.
― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You


Who are your favorite authors?

L.J. Smith literally fueled my love for reading with the Night World series, The Forbidden Game, and Dark Visions. A literal queen. Along with her, I also love Jojo Moyes because she gifted me my favorite book ever, Me Before You. Some other amazing authors that I love are: Karina Halle, A.R. Torre, Tomi Adeyemi, and Sally Thorne. All talented writers, and I'm always excited to read more of their work. 

Have you joined any groups?

I have not sadly!! I would love to though, so if you guys have any that you recommend, please let a girl know!

I hope you guys enjoyed this book tag! It was a nice break from the constant book reviews I hope. Please feel free to do this tag, and let me know so I can check it out!

Until next time,

k.m.
