Goodreads: A Bookish Habit

Spoiler: I’m a horrible Goodreads user

Oh, the ol’ good Goodreads. When I first discovered Goodreads, I felt like I was walking into a utopia. As a book lover, no other website is as exciting as GR. You can find ANY books of ANY genres in this one place on the Internet. I remember thinking ‘This is why the Internet is a magical place‘. 

Goodreads makes it really easy for us to find books and it provides us with all these features that, supposedly, will help us tracking and organizing our readings.

Taming Chloe Summers – Anna Katmore | BOOK REVIEW

Title: Taming Chloe Summers
Author: Anna Katmore
Release date: June 21st, 2016

Synopsis

CHLOE:

Camp sucks.

I should be on a plane to London, heading into an epic second year of college. Instead, I’m stuck on Frog Pond Mountain, tasked with supervising a horde of pubescent teens, all because I had some minor run-ins with the law.

But I came here with a plan: next weekend, I’m escaping from the boondocks and swindling my way back into civilization.

Unfortunately, my brilliant plan B couldn’t foresee one tiny detail: Justin Andrews, alpha to the wolves and drool-worthy ghost from my past…

JUSTIN:

I can’t believe Chloe Summers is going to be my co-counselor at camp this year. We haven’t talked in years, and we wouldn’t for the rest of our lives if I had anything to do with it.

But I can’t get out of this summer job. Since I’m stuck with her for the next few weeks, I might as well use the time to get back at her for what she did all those years ago. I mean, camp is supposed to be fun, right? And this could be fun indeed.

But what if a harmless game unexpectedly turns into something more serious?

Reading More Than One Book at Once | BOOKISH

What? Why? Who reads more than one book at once? *raises hand*

Admit it, we’ve all been there. The concept of reading more than one book at a time was a very bizarre thing to understand for me. I used to be someone who only reads one book at a time and will not start reading another book until I finish it. Oh, how time has changed.

For the last couple of years, I’ve found myself stop reading certain books and pick another one up along the way, before continuing the previous book. I don’t know what triggered the change, but it works for me. I had the idea to write this post as I found myself doing it even more often; even right now, I’m in between two out of the three books I recently bought.

So… you might be wondering, WHY DO YOU DO THAT?

Book Haul: European History – The Romanovs & The Borgias | BOOKISH

I finally read some non-fiction, European history books

I went to Singapore two weeks ago for a short weekend getaway and came back with three books. I’m pretty sure some of you are probably like Huh? Only three? I know!

I went to visit my favourite bookstore in Singapore and spent hours in there. I did plan to go crazy and buy as many YA/NA books I can get my hands on until I found myself browsing through history sections. Whaaat? I know. Like I mentioned, bookstore visit is one way of finding new reads and releases in the genre I don’t usually read. This time, it’s all about the history of European royals.
