Goodreads (Review)

I recently got back active online and part of it was retrieving all my social media accounts. One social media site I was so excited to retrieve was Goodreads.

I had my Goodreads account back in 2012 but I did not update it that much. Until recently, I decided to clean up all the shelves I had (because some of the books I recorded there were either half-done reading or a quarter done at all). If you happen to drop by my Goodreads book shelves, you will see how only a few are left. Those are the only few books I legitimately finished reading. I know, I know, I need (and want) to read more.

Here’s what I love about Goodreads:

Goodreads is a free website for book lovers. Imagine it as a large library that you can wander through and see everyone’s bookshelves, their reviews, and their ratings. You can also post your own reviews and catalog what you have read, are currently reading, and plan to read in the future.

I simply took the above statements from their page. 🙂 Being a book lover, Goodreads helps me to keep track of my reading – (I am currently reading Paper Towns by John Green and I am stuck at 27% (haha!) as well as discover new books that are in line of my interests. I can also rate the books I’ve read from 1 star to 5 stars and I can write my reviews (with an option to hide or show the entire review especially if it has spoilers!). Moreover, I can interact with other readers and even the authors of books.

It also gave an avenue for underrated writers and authors who are yet to share their creative stories and novels to the world. It is an inspiration for me as I dream that someday, I will be one of the featured authors of future best-selling books. *fingers crossed*

If you love reading books and don’t have a Goodreads account yet, try it out now by clicking here! I’m sure you’re gonna love it.

Carpe diem,
