The Goodreads Book Tag

I am so SO behind on all of my tags, I literally have 2 pages in my blog journal filled with Awards/Tags and I’m so bad at keeping up but I’M TRYING!!! 😀

Anyway, welcome to the Goodreads Book Tag!

I’ve been using Goodreads for years now and I am SO glad that it exists! It’s literally a DREAM for every book nerd! It’s such a great way to keep up with books you’ve read and TBR books and discovering new books! And being able to connect with other fellow book lovers all over the world is just incredible! ❤

Feel free to befriend me on Goodreads here!

I was tagged by Nadwa @ Painfully Fictional a long, long time ago lol (as I said, I’m trying to keep up XD) and Sheri @ Read in a Flash who tagged me very recently so I thought: “Alright Jackie, it’s time to get it together!”

So here we are 😀

Enjoy the Goodreads Book Tag!


What Was The Last Book You Marked As Read?

Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I have literally only just heard about this book a few days ago when Nadwa made a post about it!!! I can’t believe I didn’t find out about this before because it sounds AWESOME!

“…a star-crossed love story between a girl who’s been raised by supervillains and a boy who’s been raised by superheroes.”

I’M SOLD HELLO WHERE CAN I GET MY COPY

What Are You Currently Reading?

The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

The author Elise Kova is hosting a buddy read on Facebook (which you can still join here if you can catch up on 20 chapters in a day XD) and I am really enjoying it so far! I got the eBook for under 1$ (whaaat?) when Elise did some kind of promotion thingy for the group buddy read! It’s honestly such a great book, I might write a review once I’m through with it at the end of the month! 😀

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Well, my ACOWAR copy F I N A L LY came last Friday (after being delayed like TWICE) and I have finally started reading it (I hope you’re proud, Bella)! It’s taking me a while because I keep over-analyzing every single line lol but it’s great so far!!! 😛

What Do You Plan To Read Next?

Wellllllll… a few days ago I picked out 5 books from my shelves and put them on my night stand which now kind of serve as my ‘priority-books-to-read-next’ if that makes any sense? But the next book I’m going to read won’t be from that stack of books (lol talk about priority reads :P) but rather from my endless e-ARCs waiting on Kindle!

One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

I was so excited when I got approved to read One Of Us Is Lying on Netgalley and since this is coming out soon, I’ll be reading that next!!!!! 😀 😀

Do You Use The Star Rating System?

Yes I do! I usually don’t rate under 3 stars though! I think I’m too generous a lot of the time but I feel like just because I PERSONALLY did not like the book, doesn’t mean someone else wouldn’t like it! And if the writing and everything was good and I didn’t notice any issues/problematic things, I am most likely going to give it 3 stars! 😀

Are You Doing A 2017 Reading Challenge?

Of course!!! I have recently upped my goal because I had already reached my goal of reading 30 books 😀

Do You Have A Wishlist?

Not really! I have a few books that I’d consider my ‘priority- buys/reads’ in my Amazon cart and I check it every day to see if the prices have changed! So that’s kind of like a wishlist 😀

What Book Do You Plan On Buying Next?

Umm, well since my book-buying ban didn’t quite work out in April (I’’ll probably have to do a haul soon XD) I’ve decided not to buy any books in May instead! And it’s going well so far! Let’s see how long that will last 😀 I’ve pre-ordered When Dimple Met Rishi ages ago so that should be the book that I’ll be receiving next (if I don’t buy other books first XD)!

Do You Have Any Favorite Quotes?

Can I just say all Shatter Me quotes? No? Well, let me just mention a few of them anyway 😛

THE MOST ICONIC LINE EVER:

“Ignite, my love. Ignite.”

Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


WARNER = KING OF DRAGGING!!!

“Do you never get exhausted being so wholly unbearable? You have as much charisma as the rotting innards of unidentified roadkill.”

Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


I WANT TO DIE JUST THINKING ABOUT THIS SCENE:

“And we are quotation marks, inverted and upside down, clinging to one another at the end of this life sentence. Trapped by lives we did not choose.”

Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


YES GIRL YES GIRL Y E S  G I R L:

“I like the way I feel about myself when I’m with him.” I say quietly. “Warner thinks I’m strong and smart and capable and he actually values my opinion. He makes me feel like his equal–like I can accomplish just as much as he can, and more. And if I do something incredible, he’s not even surprised. He expects it. He doesn’t treat me like I’m some fragile little girl who needs to be protected all the time.”

Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


some non-Shatter Me quotes lol:

“I took a breath. “Your highness—”
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.”

Leigh Bardugo, Siege and Storm

“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”

Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury


Who Are Your Favorite Authors?

Tahereh (Queen of YA) Mafi, Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu – my holy trinity ❤

Have You Joined Any Groups?

I have but I don’t use them that much!

EXCEPT FOR THE NEW YA BOOK BLOGGERS GROUP THAT NADWA HAS CREATED BECAUSE WE PLANNED TO BUDDY READ CINDER!!! If you want to join us, feel free to join the group!!! Check out Nadwa’s post for more info! We will be buddy-reading it in July and there will also be other really cool things happening 😉


That’s it for the Goodreads Book Tag!
