Today I am going to be doing the end of year book tag. This tag was created by Ariel bissett. I think this tag was meant to be done a bit earlier on in the year like around September/ October time but I really wanted to do this tag so… I’m doing it.
There are 6 questions all together, so without further ado let’s get into them…
1. Are there any books that you started this year that you need to finish?
For this question I am going with Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin. I started reading. This book during my reading slump which was a very bad idea so I stopped reading it. I really want to read this soon! I have heard so many people love it and I’m so excited.
2.Do you have an autumnal book that you need to transition into the end of the year?
So I didn’t know how to interpret this question so I’m taking it as what book did you want to read during autumn that you didn’t get to but still want to😂 and in answer to that I chose Angelmage by Garth Nix. I really wanted to read this around Halloween time but I never got to it.
3.Is there a new release your still waiting for?
I am waiting for a few more releases but the main one is Crown of oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh which has technically already released but according to amazon it doesn’t release until December 26th?? Is this just amazon or the UK? Let me know because I am curious lol. But yes I am still waiting patiently to read this book, I don’t think I will be able to read it by the end of the year though.
4.What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
This was a lot harder than I thought it would be because there are so many books that I want to read by the end of the year. In the end I had to go with three books that have been on my tbr for ages and I still can’t believe I haven’t read yet and they are The cruel prince by Holly Black, Grey sister by Mark Lawrence and The name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss . I have been putting off reading these three books for so long. The cruel prince because I am afraid that I won’t like it, grey sister because I was waiting for holy sister to release and the name of the wind because it’s… big😂. All lame excuses and I need to read them!!
5.Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your new favourite of the year?
I love it when books surprise me and become 5 star reads especially if I don’t predict that they will be 5 star reads but if I had to choose what books I think are going to be 5 star reads I would say The dragon republic by R. F. Kuang and Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo.
I read the poppy war earlier this year and absolutely loved it and so I’m hoping I will love the dragon republic just as much if not more than the first one😬🤞.
As for ninth house I have heard mixed things about but having read reviews and trigger warnings I now feel prepared to start this book. I didn’t realise it was a murder mystery until I read the reviews for this book and now I am even more excited because I love murder mysteries.
6.Have you started making reading plans for 2020?
I tend not to set myself reading goals. I would like (and I emphasise the like part) to read a lot of my older books/ books that have been on my tbr forever, more in 2020 but I don’t think I will ever be able to do that. This is particularly a reading goal but I have decided to limit myself to buying 10-12 books a month. Whilst this may seem like a lot if you have seen my book hauls recently you would understand that this is a huge cut back😂😂. Whether I will be able to stick to this I have no idea because I was going through all the books I am anticipating in 2020 and there are 19 so far🙈🙄😬 and it’s not even 2020 yet so… wish me luck.
Did you enjoy this tag? Do you have any reading goals for 2020? Let me know in the comments. And feel free to do this tag and tag me for no reason other than because I would love to see your answers.
Thank you so much for reading!
