Where do you find new books to read?

One of my absolute favourite places to discover books is on GoodReads.

I adore GoodReads for a lot of reasons, but one of my favourite aspects of the site is checking out there “Most Read This Week” section. It’s the best way to find new books! Especially ones that are newly released and not overly popular yet.

I always stalk the “Most Read in Romance” section. This week is currently looking a little like this:

And I’ve actually read a pretty good portion of them. And as you can see, the most read are usually a good judge of what is good and what isn’t. My ratings are all pretty high.

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon – [Review]4 stars
The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson – [Review]4 stars
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – [Review]3 stars
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon – [Review]4 stars
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover – [Review]5 stars
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – [Review]4 stars

Growing out of the YA genre…

It’s funny how you “grow out” of genres. I’ve been reading less and less young adult books lately and all of a sudden, the thought of picking up another one isn’t that appealing. I much prefer reading new adult and adult books at the moment. Which isn’t to say I won’t ever read a YA book again (I am still a huge Sarah J Maas, Sarah Dessen etc fan) but I’ve enjoyed delving into more mature work lately.
