Sunday, April 19, 2015 - Discover your next favourite book!

Being out of the reading game for a couple years, I've had to rediscover my likes and dislikes. Most of the books I've read prior to this year were related to parenting and career advancement. So, the world of YA fiction and the list of amazing debut authors were pretty much non-existent. I joined a few book review sites, like Goodreads, and scoured the Amazon and Indigo websites for top recommended reads. Those helped me build a good sized TBR list for January and February, however it only contained books released in 2014 and upcoming 2015 releases leaving me yearning for more book recommendations. Enter I've Read That...

What is I've Read That?
I've Read That is a social media platform that connects the vast network of book lovers around the world. Through the site you can meet new people who share similar book interests, read/write reviews, recommend books to your followers. You can also maintain your book lists using their Stacks feature.

What do you like the most about the I've Read That site?
There are so many features that I love, but here are just a few:

  • The site is beautiful and very user friendly. My favourite part of the site and what keeps me coming back is the Feed. This is where you'll find featured content and your Followers' Stacks and Reviews. It's also the best place to find your next favourite book. Here's what my feed looks like at the moment:
  • Reviews are limited to 400 characters. I LOVE this. It keeps everything short, sweet and to the point.
  • The I've Read That team. I've never met them, but I have interacted with a few team members over the past couple months via email, Twitter and Slack. They are very kind and totally open to feedback and comments.
