end of the year book tag 2019

All I want to know is how on earth it’s possible that it is November. When did that happen? Has my year really been that much of a blur?

Apparently so because suddenly there are 4 weeks left in the semester, I’m already shopping for Christmas, and I’ve read 68 books. WILD.

Today, I’m going to be doing the End of the Year booktag, obviously. I’m sure y’all have seen this all over booktube and various bookblogs, so let’s just get into it!

I got these questions from Ariel Bissett on Youtube!

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

  • YES! This weekend I’ll be finishing White Oleander by Janet Fitch which I am reading for my creative writing class. I also plan to finish Slut! by Leora Tanenbaum which I started in June. I thinkkkk that’s all….?

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

  • I have been reading SO MANY autumnal books, both spooky and cozy. Some of my recent reads have been Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks, How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mathers, The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turtonand The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas.

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

  • Not exactly. Since I’m doing this tag super late, there aren’t a lot of new releases happening this year, but I am excited for the new releases that already came out and I haven’t read! The top 2 would be Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell and Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo.

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

  • I really want to read Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor, The Diviners by Libba Bray (I actually hope to do a 24-hour readathon on NYE with this series to open the roaring 20’s), and The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon.

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

  • I really hope The Diviners, Strange the Dreamer, and Ninth House do, but, if I get to it, I think The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup,  Caroline Waight (Translator) could do it. 

Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?

  • Absolutely! I want to get a lot more organized with the way I do my reading and hopefully break 100 books, so I’m absolutely planning!

If you’re reading this, you’re tagged!
