The Finished Books Tag

Again, I’m not sure who created this tag but I found it on Kristin Kraves Books. If you want to do this tag too then consider yourself tagged 🙂

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

I list my books in my reading journal and on Goodreads. I track every thing I read on Goodreads and keep my reading journal for novels and the odd bit of non-fiction.

If you record statistics, what statistics do you record?

I have tried several times to track my stats. I even got a snazzy spreadsheet from Smart Bitches Trashy Books this year. My problem is I keep forgetting to fill it in. I haven’t added to it since February….. I might get a bottle of wine some evening and just do it cause I love checking out stats at the end of the year. It would be interesting to see how the pandemic has affected my reading throughout the year.

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 rate books out of 5 because that is the option on Goodreads and Calibre. I base my ratings on how much I enjoy reading the book. The majority of what I read ends up being 4 stars cause I have no trouble dropping a book if I don’t like. Life is too short to read boring books.

Do you review books?

Yes, but not every book. I always review my NetGalley books but if it’s a bad review I tend not to post it on social media. I don’t often review mid-series books unless they’re ARC’s.

Where do you put your finished books?

Ebooks stay on my device unless I hated it in which case I delete it. Physical books go to my read shelf (sadly much smaller than my to-read shelf) or to a new home if it’s not something I will reread.

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

I review it within a day of finishing it and update my reading challenges. I’ve gotten a bit lazy with the reading challenges this year sadly…. I think I may have joined too many lol
