Tree: I am a mood reader so who knows??

Do you use the star rating system?

Bree: Yeah. I feel that it’s a pretty good system, as long as no one abuses it.

Tree: Yes! Goodreads give us the option for half stars!!

Are you doing the 2019 Reading Challenge?

Bree: Yep, but I’ve already hit my goal, so I’m coasting ’til the New Year.

Tree: Yes! I already met my goal though.

Do you have a wishlist?

Bree: Hahaha of course I do. I have an entire Amazon wishlist dedicated to books I have my eyes on.

Tree: Does this mean like Amazon Wishlist or?

What book do you plan to buy next?

Bree: I’m temped to buy Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore, but that doesn’t come out until January. So, I have some time to decide.

Tree: I’m ~technically~ on a book buying ban, but that isn’t stoping me!!! I have Capturing the Devil by Kerri Maniscalo on pre-order though.

Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few.

Bree: Uh, I don’t really actively mark quotes, but here are a few from my Goodreads.

“Stories let us see and hear and feel what someone else does,” she explained. “They build bridges to the other islands. That’s why stories are so important. They create true empathy.”
― Cynthia Hand, The Afterlife of Holly Chase

“They were meant to carry you. Not just when it’s convenient. Not just when you were small. For your entire life. You were brought into the world to be loved, and guided, and carried. That’s the deal they made, the day you were born.”
― Katie Henry, Let’s Call It a Doomsday

“I just think, we don’t get promised anything good in this life. Bad things happen all the time. They’re happening right now, somewhere out there. They’ll keep happening. Who knows? Maybe this moment, right here, is as good as I’m ever going to be.”
― Cynthia Hand, The Afterlife of Holly Chase

 I don’t really mark quotes on Goodreads and most Jane Austen, but here are a few that I have liked

“Thinking about history makes me wonder how I’ll fit into it one day, I guess. And you too. I kinda wish people still wrote like that. History, huh? Bet we could make some.”
― Casey McQuiston, Red, White & Royal Blue

“Travelling’s not something you’re good at. It’s something you do. Like breathing. You can’t work too much at it, or it feels like work. You have to surrender yourself to the chaos. To the accidents.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

“It’s just that…I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the universe’s way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It’s how life is.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Who are your favourite authors?

Bree: Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka, Mariana Zapata, Romina Russell, Helen Hoang, Casey McQuiston, and  Morgan Matson, amongst others.

Tree: Taylor Jenkins Reid, Leigh Bardugo, Morgan Matson, & Mariana Zapata to name a few.

Have you joined any groups?

Bree: Actively? Not really.

Tree: I am in one for Yallwest! But, tbh don’t use it at all.

Thanks for reading!

xoxo, Bree & Tree
