Today, for my last tag of 2019, I’m doing The End of the Year Book Tag. I’ve enjoyed doing this for the last couple of years, and I always love seeing other people’s answers to this one, so if you’re doing it too let me know!
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
I’m writing this way in advance of actually scheduling but I expect the book I’ll most be needing to finish by the time this goes live is The Starless Sea by Erin Morgernstern which I’m purposely saving for my Christmas hols.
2. Do you have a book to transition into the end of the year?
This isn’t a thing I normally have, but I do have plans to read Shadows of Winterspell by Amy Wilson over the Christmas break. I read Snowglobe by the same author last Christmas Day and it was magical.
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I don’t think there are any new releases due out now are there? I have a few new releases I’ve just picked up that I want to read, but the books I am anticipating are mainly due out next year now.
4. What are three books you want to finish before the end of the year?
In a perfect world, I want to read Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo, I’d also love to squeeze in Explorers on Black Ice Bridge by Alex Bell.
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite of the year?
Any book I plan to read before the end of the year could technically still become my favourite of the year, but it would have stiff competition because I have read some truly amazing books this year that will take some beating. I expect The Starless Sea and Shadows of Winterspell which I’ve already mentioned will become favourites.
6. Have you already started making plans for your reading in 2020?
I haven’t chosen specific books yet. My main plan for reading next year is to reduce the amount of books on my TBR (Mount Ted). I am hoping to get under 100 books. I also plan to choose my own TBR for my birthday month in January, making it the first time I’ve chosen my own TBR in almost two years. Additionally, I plan to continue roping my friends into choosing TBRs for me, so if you want to do that then please let me know!
