The Goodreads Tag

Greetings readers!

Ahhh Goodreads, we have become good friends over these past two years. It is literally the perfect tool for every bookworm and has helped me keep track of all my books–read and (mainly) unread! I can spend a lot of time on GR, just browsing! Browsing books, quotes, discussions, giveaways. It’s an addiction.

Bless the creators of Goodreads!

Alright that’s enough oogoling about GR!

Thank you to the lovely Nadwa @ PainfullyFictional for tagging me. If you all don’t follow Nadwa, I seriously recommend it! She has such wonderful reviews and also her blog is just really pretty to look at!

To the tag!


What Was The Last Book You Marked As Read?

Hinder by Kristin Ping

via Goodreads

Hinder by Kristin Ping

It was an interesting read to say the least. It included elemental magic (my favourite kind of magic) so I had a good time reading it! It didn’t come without its faults, though. It does have a gorgeous cover!

What Are You Currently Reading?

Sabriel (Abhorsen,  #1)

via Goodreads

Sabriel by Garth Nix

A classic(ish) fantasy that I’ve been meaning to get to for a while.

What Do You Plan To Read Next?

Bridges: A Daphne White Novel Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)

Bridges by Maria Murnane and/or Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. A review read and then a novel that has been pushed on me by my sister!

Do You Use The Star Rating System?

Yes, but I usually add .25, .5 , .75 because I like to complicate my life apparently.

Are You Doing A 2017 Reading Challenge?

I am on my personal GR account, not as Rendz! I planned on reading 60 and I have read 23 or 25 so far…its not exactly going as planned….

Do You Have A Wishlist?

No! I like to scroll through my TBR once in a while though and write down titles that catch my attention again, which then becomes a wishlist!

What Book Do You Plan On Buying Next?

Warcross by Marie Lu and Renegades by Marissa Meyer! I’m looking to pre-order them!! But if I make a trip to the bookstore before that, probably Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo!

Do You Have Any Favourite Quotes?

  • “Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”
    ― Marie LuLegend
  • “I know your soul. Everything else is just an ornament.”
    ― Roshani ChokshiThe Star-Touched Queen 
  • “Soon, the whole world would be searching for her–Linh Cinder.
    A deformed cyborg with a missing foot.
    A Lunar with a stolen identity.
    A mechanic with no one to run to, nowhere to go.
    But they will be looking for a ghost.”
    ― Marissa MeyerCinder

  • “Captain,” she murmured.
    “I think I’m in love with you.”
    An eyebrow shot up. She counted six beats of his heart before, suddenly, he laughed.
    “Don’t tell me it took you two whole days to realize that. I must be losing my touch.”
    ― Marissa MeyerCress

  • “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.”
    ― Leigh BardugoSix of Crows

  • “No mourners. No funerals. Among them, it passed for ‘good luck.”
    ― Leigh BardugoSix of Crows

I went a little overboard with the quotes, didn’t I! *shrugs* Oh well!

Who Are Your Favourite Authors?

Marissa Meyer (My Imperial Queen), Leigh Bardugo (My Witch-Queen), Marie Lu (My Idol), Marie Rutkoski (My Breath/Heart Steeler), Morgan Rhodes (My Multi-POV Mistress), Sabaa Tahir (My Lady of Killer/Huggable Characters) and Roshani Chokshi (My Goddess with Words).

    Omg those three books that you’re planning to buy are my most anticipated releases for the fall. 😂 I’ll have to preorder them as well! And gosh, all the quotes you shared (except for TSTQ) are ones I love! My favorite authors are also Marissa, Marie, and Leigh. 😛

    Great tag and great answers, Rendz! I really want to read Sabriel sometime… It sounds like one of those books any fantasy reader needs to read before they die!
    Truthwitch, Warcross, Renegades and Wonder Woman are also on my TBR 🙂
    And I love your quotes! Thorne had the best ones, his humor was so on point all the time. One of my personal favorite of his:
    [Cress] “Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?”
    He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. “No. I’m pretty sure it was Cinder.”
    Had me laughing for a good thirty seconds the first time I read it hahaha
    Awesome post! 🙂
