So I stole this tag from Beth @ Reading Every Night because I love tags and when do I actually ever post real book reviews??? THIS IS NOT A BOOK BLOG WHAT WERE YOU THINKING.
Well. It sort of is. I do talk about books. A lot. And chocolate, but that’s because this might actually secretly be a chocolate blog???*
ANYWAYS Since this is supposed to be an actual tag with actual questions (????) I’ll stop rambling now. Also isn’t this a great excuse to troll Goodreads…some more?? ONWARD.
OH. And also, because I’m SUPER ORGANISED*, all the covers of the books mentioned will be linked to the Goodreads page!
*When did this happen and why did nobody inform me??
**HA. HA. HAAAAAA
What is the last book you marked as ‘read’?
That would be the oh, so glorious THIS SAVAGE SONG. If you haven’t read it yet WHO ARE YOU AND COME OUT OF HIDING YOU CAVE PERSON. Just kidding.*
This book was so beautiful and heartbreaking and full of monsters and it was THE BEST. Also #stressful. Which is great. I promise. NOW GO READ IT BEFORE I THROW IT AT YOUR HEAD.**
*Only mildly. YOU NEED TO READ THIS.
**And trust me, this would hurt because I own the hardback and getting hardback corners in your face hurts a lot (I should know)
What are you Currently Reading?
After putting this ridiculously and frighteningly large book (WHY YOU DO DIS MAAS????) on hold and being yelled at by my #bokstagrambestie, I FINALLY started reading Empire of Storms. It’s really good, even though I’m 350 pages in and that is only halfway.* I am happy to say that I have loved every book so far in this series and if you have not yet succumbed to Maas descruction, START WITH THIS SERIES BECAUSE THE ACOTAR SERIES IS A MESS BARTHOLEMEW.
*I CRY I TELL YOU I CRY
What is the last book you marked as ‘To-Read’?
That would be Wicked Like a Wildfire.
It’s releasing soon and can we all just take a moment to admire that stunningly beautiful cover??? Like, I don’t judge books by their cover*, but DANG GIRL. I actually avoid synopses like the plague so I only mildly know what this one is about??? #bringiton
What book do you plan to read next?
I know I took a little break after This Savage Song, and I’m trying to be a good little #adult and finish Empire of Storms and not put it on hold because READING SLUMP DANGER. BUT. I am going to read Our Dark Duet immediately after I finish because I HAVE NEEDS OKAY. I need more of my precious August, of the mesmerizing Ilsa and of Kate who is so freaking cool I can’t even.
Do you use the star rating system?
YES. That is the short answer because my brain can’t handle any ratings otherwise??? Like. What does it was fabulous but I had x-number of issues with it EVEN MEAN. HOW MANY STARS GALINDA. HOW MANY.
Are you doing a 2017 reading challenge?
Can I go hide in a hobbit hole now???
It just so happens that I did set myself a goal for this year.
It also happens to happen that I am slightly 10 books behind schedule on my 80 book goal.
This is mainly due to me torturing myself by reading no books that were under 500 pages for like 2 months.
Do you have a wishlist?
Um. OF COURSE I DO. My wishlist actually isn’t my to-read list on Goodreads. I have mostly books on there that I plan to buy ASAP, or in hopes that a kind soul will find it in themselves to just buy them all for me!*
*Should you be this kind soul, you’ll find my wishlist on my profile. No pressure.
What book do you plan to buy next?
MUAHAHA. FULL DISCLOSURE: No one should EVER give me access to money.* I am utterly irresponsible with it and I have a smol shopping problem.
The book that I plan to buy next that is waiting patiently in my cart is the entirety of The Mortal Instruments. I succumb very easily to peer pressure and EVERYONE LOVES THESE BOOKS AND I DON’T HAVE THEM.
Interesting Fact About Me**: I actually read the first three books when I was like…a smol pubescent being. I might have been like 15??? (I am now 23 for those of you who are wondering. I am the dinosaur of the blogosphere) AND IT’S BEEN SO LONG I CAN’T REMEMBER LIKE ANYTHING. Plus, I didn’t know Cassie was going to come out with 2084384905 more books????? #rude.
*That’s right, not even my OWN money.
**Probably not that interesting TBH
Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few!
For the record I am the WORST at remembering quotes! I need to get better at this because it is of utmost importance.
I do have a select few though that I do remember??
“Even kings are made of flesh and bone.”
-A Conjuring of Light, V.E. Schwab
“He read while he walked. He read while he ate. The other librarians suspected he somehow read while he slept, or perhaps didn’t sleep at all.”
-Strange the Dreamer, Laini Taylor
“You’ve got the look of a girl who’s no stranger to the page. I can tell. You’ve got words in your soul.”
-Nevernight, Jay Kristoff
Like I said, there are so many more but WUT IS BRAIN.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have so many??? But I will give you like my top three. Or seven. And link a book that I love from them below so you can bask in their awesomeness.
Have you joined any groups?
I am in like one bookclub group but mostly I am just a potato. Potatos #forthewin!
YOU. ALL OF YOU LOVELY BEANS WHO ARE READING THIS: I TAG YOUUUUU
Talk to me beans! Do you see us twinning on anything??? Let me know! Also let me know if you do this tag because I want to see it!!
