I was tagged to do this (ages ago! Sorry!) by one of my wonderful blogger buddies, Heather from The Sassy Book Geek! Please make sure to head over there too see her answers to this tag and check out her site. She is an amazing blogger, one of my absolute favorites, and I think you will all love her too! 😀
What was the last book you marked as “read”?
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
What was the last book you marked as TBR?
Play of Shadows by Sebastien de Castell
What book do you plan to read next?
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
Do you use the star rating system?
Yes, I go by half stars—actually TARDISes on here—(because I would go insane if I tried anything more specific!). Like many people, I am frustrated that Goodreads doesn’t allow half stars. It’s so hard to choose whether to round up or down for some books!
Are you doing the 2020 reading challenge?
Yes! I’m hoping to finally reach one hundred books this year—I’ve been trying for so long and I’m so determined to get there!
Do you have a wishlist?
I definitely do! I keep one on Amazon, one on Goodreads, one on Book Depository, and a physical list in my reading planner.
Which book do you plan on buying next?
The Girl Who Speaks Bear by Sophie Anderson
Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few.
Um…this is definitely more than “a few” because I’m indecisive…
“When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” – Arthur Conan Doyle
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.” – Harper Lee
“It was always wise to be polite to books, whether or not they could hear you.” – Margaret Rogerson
“Dream up something wild and improbable. Something beautiful and full of monsters.” – Laini Taylor
“I’ve been doomed since the moment I watched you smack a fiend off my carriage with a crowbar.” – Margaret Rogerson
“I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.” – Neil Gaiman
“Stars got tangled in her hair whenever she played in the sky.” – Laini Taylor
“I only turn girls into salamanders on Tuesdays. Luckily for you, it’s a Wednesday, which is the day I drink a goblet of orphan’s blood for supper.” – Margaret Rogerson
“That the battles are usually in her head does not lessen the bravery of it. The hardest ones always are.” – William Ritter
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” – Harper Lee
Who are your favorite authors?
My top five favorites are Arthur Conan Doyle, Harper Lee, Margaret Rogerson, Seanan McGuire, and Victoria Schwab.

I have joined a few but I’ll admit I don’t really interact with them much at all. The one I participate in the most frequently is Polls for Our Souls because I always love a good poll!
