Book Tags

The Finished Books // Book Tag

I saw this tag over at Imyril’s and could not resist giving it a go. It was created by Headless Books.

Do you keep a list of the books you have read?

Mostly on goodreads. I tried keeping track in a notebook but I forget way too often for that. Now that I am using a bujo I am writing down in there which books I read when I track my genre so I guess I am making a list again. Over a few lists.

If you record statistics, what statistics do you record?

Overall ratings, release dates, form, series finished, target groups, diversity, amount of pages, library or own books, averages per month. This year I am also keeping track of how many days I read per month and what genres I read the most. (Though we all know that will be fantasy, lol).

Do you give star ratings for books and if so, what do you score books out of and how do you come about this score?

I use 1 to 5 stars as that is what I started with on goodreads when I first started reading and reviewing. I haven’t let that go because it does work for me, mostly. I do use half stars however. It is partially feel wise but I also am aware on what target group it is meant for. I tend to rate middle grade books different than young adult books. Because it is meant for a different age bracket. That is good to take into account.

Do you review books?

Yes. Yes I do.

Where do you put your finished books?

On my bookshelves?

How do you pick your next book?

Usually I have a priority list because of e-arcs and other commitments like buddy reads and readalongs. Other than that I add books to it that just appeal to me the most and are at the top of my mind.

Do you have any other rituals for when you have finished a book?

I stare at the cover.

Seriously, I do this with physical books. Sometimes I pet it if the book meant something to me.

  1. Ah, I love that you pet books that mean a lot to you! I do that too! Sometimes I have to carry them around with me for a few days after I’ve finished them just so they’re with me physically for a bit longer.
    Aren’t book people are awesome?! 😀

  2. Haha, ik aai mijn boeken ook. Meestal onbewust tot ik dan plots besef wat ik aan het doen ben. 🙂 Ik hou mijn gelezen boeken bij via Goodreads, mijn blog, mijn bullet journal én in een notitieboek dat in dringend nog eens moet aanvullen. Vier op een rij dus.

  3. Thanks for mentioning the MG thing. The Middle Grade ratings on Goodreads are becoming more and more skewed as more and more adults have started reading them. It makes me so angry. 😡

    We should start a book petters club. 😁
