Reading Review: Goodreads + Reading Goals for January & Febuary

Some may or may not know about the site Goodreads but personally I am in love with this site. That being said my obsession for the site comes from the facts that I am an avid reader and go through various genre phases. Goodreads lets you find books that you would like to read based on what you’ve already enjoyed. The site also allows you to connect with friends, ask authors questions, review and comment on books you’ve already read and make a reading goal for the year.

I love the movie Cold Mountain!! Need to read the book! I love A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley. I think you’d like it. Right now I’m reading The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling.
