I am so excited to share my fantastic find. Has anyone heard of the website goodreads.com? Maybe you all have and I am just way behind. I discovered this magical gem while reading through the wonderful blog Precious Impressions by Catriona, when I saw a post she had done that mentioned a website that gave you recommendations on what to read next depending on your taste in books.
I couldn't believe my luck. I had been searching for something exactly like this that would help me keep track of all the books I have read and recommend ones depending on my taste.

You can sign up for free here. Pick the categories that you read the most and then it will get you to rate those books you have all ready read and discard ones that you are not interested in and bam your list of recommended books appears.

I now have many many books on my list and I will slowly be working my way through them as it is on my 30 by 30 list to read 200 books by the time I turn 30.
On this list are:

Shiver - Maggie Stiefvator
Sisterhood everlasting - Ann Brashares
Maine - J. Courtney Sullivan
Magnified World - Grace O'Connell
The winter witch - Paula Brackston
Incarnate - Jodi Meadows
Eve - Anna Carey
Spellcasters - Kelley Armstrong
Clockwork Princess - Cassandra Clare
Things we love - Kate Spade

I could go on but I won't torture you. What are you reading right now? I would love any recommendations you might have.

  12. I haven't read anything for a couple months now, and seeing your post makes me want to get back into it again. I have an addiction to books, and have way too many at homw that I need to read before venturing into any site like this!

  13. I love Goodreads! I've been addicted to it for a couple of years now. I've read some really good books that were suggested by the site and some that I'd never have picked up normally
