Tag: End of the Year Book Tag 2018

I’m not really sure how it’s possibly already the end of the year (wasn’t it just July like a minute ago??) but somehow we’re already in the middle of December. I have a few festive tags coming up but I thought I’d start with the End of the Year Book Tag. I was tagged for this one by Siobhan!

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

I’m in a little bit of a slump right now and currently have both History Is All You Left Me and Wild Beauty on hold. I’ll pick them up and read a chapter or two, but I really do need to finish them, and hopefully sooner rather than later. Other than those two (and a couple DNFs that I do not plan to revisit), I don’t think there are any other books that I’ve started and not finished.

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

Not really, sorry! I don’t tend to do re-reads and I can’t think of any autumnal books I’ve read recently.

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

There are 2019 releases that I’m looking forward to, but is there anything left in 2018 that I’m still waiting for? Maybe just My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren. It just came out and hopefully I’ll be able to read it soon!

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

Let’s see… I have Becoming by Michelle Obama checked out from the library right now (and I love her) so hopefully I’ll be reading that one soon. And An Assassin’s Guide to Love & Treason and Vengeful were two of my most anticipated releases that I still haven’t gotten around to, so hopefully I’ll be getting to those soon, too. (No promises, though, December is going to be a busy month.)

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

If I’m 100% honest, probably not. There are a few books that I’m excited to read (see above) but I don’t think they’ll top my list of favorites.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?

After that big post I did about planning for my blog, I’m sure no one will be surprised to hear that yes, I am already planning for 2019. I’ll probably do a post about my 2019 plans at some point, but basically…

  • I’m setting a goal of reading 100 books
  • I’ll probably do at least two or three reading challenges
  • I’d like to do some guest posts and collaborations (even though I don’t really know how to start)
  • And I’m hoping that I’ll be able to keep up my current schedule of posting every day

I’m tagging…

Anybody who’s been searching for a tag! I’ve seen a lot of people do this one recently, so if you haven’t done it yet, please consider yourself tagged. ❤

    100 books is a bit low for you, isn’t it? 😛
    And I can’t wait to read ‘Becoming’. I don’t know how you got it from the library. I’m, like, a 125th in line at mine out of 175 holds. The audiobook has 263 holds. It’s incredibly high in demand. I might just buy it.

      Haha, you’re right, it is a little low for me! I like to set a goal I know I can achieve, otherwise it just stresses me out.

      And I have no idea how I got Becoming so quickly! I fully expected to wait months for it. It had 179 holds at my library last I checked!!

    I can’t wait to read Vengeful! I am planning on starting tonight!! I just finished Vicious and absolutely loved it!! Vengeful won the 2018 Goodreads Best Science Fiction book, you don’t think it has any chance of being your new favorite for the year?

    I want to read Wild Beauty so bad! Sorry to hear about the slump, maybe drop those books if they aren’t what you feel like reading right now? It always helps me to get out of a slump when I start fresh with some short stories or comics

    Love the goal for 100 books in 2019, this year was the first year I hit that goal. Good luck to you!
    If you haven’t read it already, I would suggest checking out The Count of Monte Cristo, I got it on an audible sale this year and listened in the summer, one of my favorite fictional books ever.

    Yes I am making a 2019 reading plan, hoping to post it on my blog in the first week of January.
