I always mean to update my Goodreads list, but I never do. I also have every intention of keeping a book journal or rating the books I read… but I don’t.
We have star stickers we use for recipes. Gold means I’d-eat-this-every-night, Silver means delicious, Red eqauls it’s okay… you get the idea. I could apply this same rating system to my books – all I’d need to do is put a little sticker inside the cover – but I haven’t.
This year I’m trying to remember to update my books list. I’m not very successful, but I’m trying. These are the books I remember reading so far this year. I know I’ve missed some, so I may need to come back and modify.

Testing Testing…… look at that list of yours!
Thanks for some adds to my Goodreads TBR shelf…whenever I get around to updating it! Um, have you read GOOD GIRLS by Laura Ruby, UNDONE by Brooke Taylor, or BEFORE I DIE by Jenny Downham? I haven’t either, but they’re all on my physical TBR shelf! 🙂
I have LibraryThing and I love it but then my library friends went and got Goodreads so now I’m on that too.
Anyway, what about 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, Savvy by Ingrid Law, or The Trials of Kate Hope by Wick Downing?
Regarding #3, 18, & 32 : we need to discuss these!!! How did you sneak them past me?
You need to read:
Evolution, Me and Other Freaks of Nature
Sweethearts [esp. if we are meeting Sara Zarr!]
Those are 4 from my favorites shelf on goodreads that I wasn’t sure you’ve read?
I just started Evermore tonight! But then got too sleepy and now the rest of the night is busy. Maybe I will read during hockey intermissions. teehee.
