The End of the Year Book Tag

tag-templ2

Hello, lovelies! I’m back with another book tag, I really think they’re exciting and I prefer them to book reviews, but I’ll do my best to find a balance between these. Anyway, this tag was created by Ariel Bissett on youtube and is about how we prepare for this end of the year book-wise. Let’s get started!

1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

YES. yes. YES. I’ve been incredibly bad at finishing books this year, I don’t know whyyy! I have two books for this, they are both on my currently reading shelf, but I haven’t focused on them for a long time and these are :

 

With The Silmarillion I have an excuse because it’s a very heavy book, one that you read alongside with others because you need some distraction. It’s very mythology-packed, it’s the ‘Bible’ of Middle Earth, it’s the genesis of this universe. But with The House of Hades, I don’t have many excuses, besides the fact that I’ve read this series in a very chaotic manner and now I ended up not remembering any facts anymore.

 

2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

That’s not really how it works with me. I read whatever I’m in the mood for. I’ve been known to read wintery books in the summer, summer books in the winter and so on. But this one has been on my radar for some time and it gives huge vibes of autumnal book.

3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

October is my birthday month and I feel like it’s always been such a great month for book releases and this year it isn’t disappointing me either. Just look at these beautiful babies and there are more, but these are the ones I’m most excited about!

 

 

4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

So, so, so many. You can see my shame from here, growing each year with each popular release that I haven’t read yet even though everybody else and their cats had.

 

 

5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

Hmm, I have very high hopes for all the books above, but especially about The Hate U Give and Crooked Kingdom. I feel like these two books have high potential to end up being my favourites.

6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

No, I can’t say that I did make plans for 2018. I have a resolution – to read and finish more of my uncompleted series because I have a huge shelf with unfinished series and it’s time to get a hold of it.

That was it, what are some of your plans for 2018? And are you happy with what you accomplished so far in 2017?

    Lovely answers! I can’t wait for you to read The Hate U Give and I hope it will end up being a favorite of yours – I loved it so much and it deserves all the hype it’s getting for sure 🙂

    I’m also planning to finish The Night Circus by the end of this year. I’m listening to the audiobook and it’s so good! The prologue was exceptional!! The background music in the beginning was just perfect and it sets the tone for the story. I highly recommend the audiobook. 🙂

      Thank you for suggesting it, Claire! I really might try the audiobook. I haven’t tried audiobooks yet and I’m interested in them, but also a bit fearful I won’t enjoy the whole experience. ❤
