The Finished Books Tag

Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books always has fun bookish tags that I like to recreate, I seen this one pretty recently on her blog and I wanted to give it a go!

Picture1I do on Goodreads! I started my account in early 2018 and I have never looked back! I also have a reading journal at home that I like to keep a physical record of all the books that I read!

img_7245

Picture2I do record monthly reading stats and I usually post them at the end of every month on my blog. I keep track of the total number of pages read in the month and the average number of pages per day, the format of the books I read, the different genres, male vs female authors, the longest and shortest book I read in the month , my favourite book of the month and my star ratings! Here are my stats from April, March & January (somehow I skipped Feb this year)

April Statsmarch statsStats December

Picture3I do rate all of the books I read, it’s very subjective but I usually rate per my enjoyment of the book. ⭐️1 star = hated, ⭐️2 star = didn’t like, ⭐️3 star = liked, ⭐️4 star = really really liked, ⭐️5 star = absolutely LOVED!

Picture4I review most of the books that I finish but not all of them. I read quite a mix of books but the ones that I kind of prioritise to review are the more new releases and hyped books but if I have some thoughts I need to share I will definitely post it!

Picture5I have 3 bookshelves in my room that hold all of my books, both read and unread.

Picture6I will usually just mark it as ‘read’ on Goodreads, take my bookmark out and put the book back on my shelves! If I have intense feelings I will start my review straight away, but usually I like to leave it until the next couple of days before I write anything down just to let my thoughts settle.

The Currently Reading Tag

I’ve seen this tag floating around a few blogs so I thought why not give it a go!

Picture1

Only ever one, I have a hard time focusing if I’m in the middle of too many books.

Picture2

Like I said I’m never in that position so it’s all good

Picture3

Unless I misplace it when I take it out of the book I only ever use one

Picture4

Usually on my bed or on my nightstand

Picture5

Weekdays usually around 9pm – 10:30pm and on the weekends it’s usually around 1pm – 4pm

Picture6

Depends on how I’m feeling about the book. On weeknights it’s usually only around an hour or so but on the weekends it could be anywhere from an hour to 6, I have been known to finish a book in one sitting.

Picture7

Yes, I always end up damaging the dust jacket otherwise; I kind of throw my books around a lot

Picture8

Laying down, either or my side on on my back!

Picture9

No I will leave it in my room usually on my bed

Picture10

This depends as well, usually after a sitting and I put the book down I will update my Goodreads but if I forget or am too tired to I will wait and just update when I finish the book!
