This is my first end of the year book tag, and I got excited and wrote this post before I was tagged. No regrets!
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
There were a lot of books I started this year that I didn’t end up finishing because I didn’t like them. As far as the books I actually do want to finish, I have Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver and Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi. I didn’t realize this until just now, but I started both of these as audiobooks. Normally I do have a hard time sticking with audiobooks, even if I like the book, so this isn’t that surprising. I have a physical copy of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle at home, which might help me finish it.
2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition you to the end of the year?
I don’t really plan my reading around seasons, but for some reason I associate fantasy novels with fall, so I guess it’s the perfect time for me to be on a Brandon Sanderson binge. I’m currently reading The Hero of Ages, which is the final book in the Mistborn trilogy.
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
Most of the releases I was anticipating this year are already out. Not to say I’ve read them all! I am low key curious about the Michelle Obama Becoming journal.
4. What three books do you want to read before the end of the year?
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite?
Like I said before, I’m in the middle of reading The Hero of Ages, and I think it’s a strong contender for my favorite book of the year. It wouldn’t be shocking, though. Beyond that, I don’t think it’s possible for me to love a book as much as I’ve loved reading the Mistborn series. It’s going to take a while for my emotions to even out, and I can’t even imagine what this book hangover is going to be like. And no, I will not stop talking about it.
6. Have you already made reading plans for 2020?
Oh yes. Such is the life of a book blogger. There will be a whole post on that later.
I’m also excited to write about my favorite books of the year and see what everyone else loved reading! Do I do it now? Do I wait until the year is officially over? Time will tell!
Happy reading, bookish friends.
