Books Read in September:
- I read 3-8 of the Pink Carnation series. There was skimming involved with a few of them. I’m not going to review the rest. I liked some more than others.
- I also read 2-5 of the Percy Jackson series. I enjoyed them but I don’t plan on reviewing them. They were really quick reads!
- Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby
- The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M Danforth
- The Dream Thieves – by Maggie Stiefvater – Probably my favorite read of 2013 so far.
- Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
- Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
- I read some Cicero for a class. Blahhhhh
- I reread The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K Le Guin
Before blogging, I used to mark books as read on Goodreads as soon as I was finished and now I don’t ever do it that way. I need to at least write down what I read. Those are the books that will (hopefully) be reviewed, but not all of the Pink Carnation series or the Percy Jackson series.
I’m not really sure what to do about Goodreads. I don’t like what they did, but the site is useful. I think it has the most information about books. I haven’t really decided yet, but for now I’m still going to link to them. I’m pretty lazy about posting reviews on Goodreads anyway, so I might just wait to make an actual decision. Maybe I’ll check out some of the other options, but I’m not sure.
I’ve been trying to catch up on commenting! I keep making some progress then getting overwhelmed, distracted, or lost in a book. If I’ve missed you lately, leave me a link! How was your September??
Yeah, I don’t like what Goodreads did either, but I don’t use that site for reviews—more like cataloging my books, so I won’t be moving. September did go SO FAST, didn’t it??? Wow. My reading numbers went down a lot this month, but such is life when school starts back. 🙂
I had been posting my reviews there, but I might just use it for other stuff now. It’s easy to snag their descriptions, and they have genres listed and an easy TBR list. My classes haven’t really affected my reading-yet. I’m pretty sure it’s coming, especially since I have two short classes starting soon! Oops!
I read the Percy Jackson series recently too – I have been reviewing them but ran out of steam and never reviewed book 5. They are great, quick, fun reads.
I actually think I saw your reviews for them before and while I was reading them! They were quick and fun!
I just bought The Dream Thieves, but I haven’t started it yet. I am so glad to hear that you love it!
I hope you love it! It’s pretty spectacular!
I’m really lazy about posting reviews to Good Reads also, so I don’t consider much of a change. I don’t like what they did, but I mostly use it as a way to catalog what I’ve completed and when, along with tracking books I want to read. Maybe they will re-evaluate themselves since it doesn’t sound like anyone is happy with the change! You read a lot in September, great job! Can’t wait for the reviews, especially for Juliet, Naked!
I used to use Goodreads to do mark what I read and when but all my apps and stuff are for my personal account. I need to consolidate them or something! I think a lot of people will get over it, and they have enough people that don’t really care that they’ll be able to do whatever they want. Oh well, such is the internet! I hope my reviews don’t disappoint, haha!
