The Goodreads Tag

I am doing BTD’s first ever Tag post. I’m feeling pretty snazzy and in the cool-blogger’s club. I saw The Goodreads Tag on Girl Who Reads  and thought to myself, “OH MY GOSH I NEED TO DO THIS.” Yes, I did scream in my thoughts haha.

I wasn’t tagged, so anybody who would like to join may do so! If tags aren’t your thang, then all the more power to you.

If they are, then let’s get down to geeking out over Goodreads aka my favorite website.

What Was The Last Book You Marked as “Read”?

5

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Yessss. After 20-day reading slump I finally finished the third Harry Potter book. It took me sitting in the back corner of my local library for three hours and dissolving completely into the story to finish the last 51% of the book. I know that percentage because thank you Kindle-App. This is book has been my favorite so far, but I definitely need a little break from our good friend HP.

 

 

 

What are you currently reading?

My Lady Jane– Currently on page 249, oh my goodness. so good.

Girl Defined– My current daily devotional, study. I don’t know, I’m reading this at a slow pace and taking notes.

When People Are Big and God is Small– I started this book in September, haven’t picked it up since, but I will not give up!

What Was the last book you marked as ‘to read’?

Letters From Father Christmas

Do you use the star rating system?

Yes I do! I actually love using their rating system better than others.

Are you doing a 2016 reading challenge?

Heh…heh… Every year I start the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge, and so far I read one book off the list and then just continue to read what I want to.

Do you have a Wishlist?

Umm. Yes.

Do you have any favorite quotes. Would you like to share a few?

I have many favorite quotes, but instead of searching for them I am going to quote my all time favorite quote which is not even from a book-

“Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.”- Tyler Knott Gregson

Who are your favorite Authors?

Kiera Cass, Lauren Oliver, Roald Dahl

Have you joined any groups?

Yes! I got super excited when I first joined Goodreads in 2012 and joined a lot of groups, some of which I refuse to leave because of time in the group. But I recently joined The Readers created by Girl Who Reads which I am super excited about joining.

How many shelves do you have on Goodreads?

All together I have nine- Read, Currently Reading, To Read, 2014, 2015, 2016, Gave Up On, Raves, and Up-Next.

I am going to ask one more question,

Who Is Your Favorite Publishing Company?

Harper Collins! I can look at a cover and tell right away if it is from Harper Collins or not. And if I’m not paying attention and I end up really liking the book it’s almost always Harper Collins. I don’t know how or why, but that is fact.

 

I greatly enjoyed writing this, hehehe my tag cravings are now full. If you do this tag or have done it put a link in the comments because I would greatly love to read it.

Until Next Time,

My Book Collection 2016

unnamed-5
Hey look! My desk where I do all my creating!

Yay for filler posts! I have been in such a reading slump, I still haven’t finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Isn’t that terrible?! I swear that I’m that reader who either reads a book in four hours, or doesn’t read for four months. It’s so bad.

So I am giving myself some extra time by writing this post. I’ve done a lot of moving in the past year and a half. I moved to New York City for a year, then to my mom’s house, and as of this past Sunday, I am now living at my dad’s house.Phew! It’s been crazy. I have had to pack and ship boxes three times. THREE TIMES. By the second time you pack everything up you start wondering if your stuff is really worth it, just imagine the third time.

I got rid of/donated a lot of books during the different moving sessions, and these are the books that have made it to their (for now) final destination. These lucky ducks.

Let’s start with the left side of my computer:

  • Nimona by Noella Stevenson
  • Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womenhood by Piper & Grudem
  • Uprooting Anger by Robert D. Jones
  • It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke
  • Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot
  • Living The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
  • When People Are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch
  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  • The Carousel Painter by Judith Miller
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
  • Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot
  • Desiring God by John Piper
  • Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
  • Romeo And/Or Juliet by Ryan North

Woah, that was more than I thought lol. Pardon me for not linking the titles to Amazon. Not for the right side!

This side is tiny haha.

  • On Our Knees by Susan J. Heck
  • The Swiss Family Robinson by John Wyss
  • Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliot
  • The Giver by Lois Lowery

Something else I just realized? Only 9/19 are fiction lol even though I am more of a fiction girl than non-fiction.

So for one reason or another, these are books that are special enough to me to keep through multiple states.

What are some books that go wherever you go?

Until Next Time
