What We're Reading at Goodreads

Posted by Hayley on May 4, 2015
It's Book Perk time again! Every two months, each member of the Goodreads team gets to choose a book to order. We stacked up a portion of our latest stash in the Secret Garden-themed conference room—note the spectacularly painted wall in bloom—before letting everyone claim their next to-read.

Check out the full list of titles on Listopia! What will you be reading next?

Barbara I just ordered "The Anthropology of Turquoise: Reflections on Desert, Sea, Stone, and Sky" and then I would like to read The Nightingale.


message 15: by Krystal (new)

Krystal So I am finally forcing myself to get rid of my huge to be read pile on goodreads and so I"m slowly doing that. I can't believe I've read so many book so far this year. sometimes i finish two a week but I'm on my fifteenth and my goal is only 25. I have to balance because I have to read for my book club and then ones that I want to on my own. 10/14 are ones that i've wanted to read on my own. Right now I'm reading Sex with Kings: 500 Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revengeby Eleanor Herman Eleanor Herman

Daniel Sevitt Currently reading Resurrection by Tolstoy. He may be my favourite Victorian writer. He's so modern and he's incredibly sharp about human emotions and delusions.

I have The Sculptor waiting for me to pick up on my trip to London this week together with The Gigantic Beard That was Evil and Big Hard Sex Criminals so that should keep me in graphic novels until the weekend.

I'm also really looking forward to Claudia Rankine's Citizen which was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle as both non-fiction and poetry (it won for poetry). Sounds awesome.

Then I have the next two volumes of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan novels and I thought I'd give Tana French a go.

message 21: by Melissa (new)

Melissa I Ouch. This is embarrassing :-/ I havent read any of them, but I do have 7 on my want to read/wishlist. They've been on my wishlist forever it feels like and I'm sure once I go through and read each synopsis that the 7 is going to go up.

Definitely want to read:

The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes by Jojo Moyes

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah by Kristin Hannah

Within These Walls by Ania Ahlborn by Ania Ahlborn <------ dying to read this one

So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson by Jon Ronson

And a milion more, but those are the ones that have stayed in my wishes the strongest. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Secret Garden room!! One of my favorites ever. (Saw the movie, haven't read the book yet, but own it so soon I hope)


I noticed that there aren't any "vote" for this book options, but there's one person who was able to vote. Strange so I came back here to comment instead of on the listopia page.

Cool! Thanks for another awesome blog post! Always fun! :)

Hi Tiffani, I always get SO excited when I see others who are reading this and a few others, but I just adored this book. Made me feel like a teen again. I hope you're enjoying it!!? :) I just pre-ordered book two and can't wait until it arrives. ~*Enjoy*~ :)
