I decided to do this tag because, upon browsing my blog, I realized that I did this very same tag last year on November 26th! I had been looking for a quick and easy tag that I could do, so this seemed appropriate.
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
I mean, it’s only November so of course I’m still reading books, but I don’t have any backlogs. I’ve gotten better about DNFing books this year!
2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Hmm, for some reason, I’ve been craving fantasy lately? So I’ve been seeking out various fantasy subgenres, in particular high fantasy and vampire lit. Winter is probably a good time for horror or cozy historical fiction, but I read so much historical fiction in October that I think I need a break from it (the exception being The Dark Days Deceit, which should hopefully arrive in the mail soon!). I also really want to read Katherine Arden’s The Girl in the Tower, but I don’t know if I’ll get to it by the end of the year.
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
This year? Nope!
4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
Last week’s Top 5 Wednesday was all about the books I want to finish reading by the end of the year. If I had to prioritize books off that list, I would say Muse of Nightmares and Vengeful, because I’m very wary of spoilers and also these are sequels, so I would like to read them before I forget pertinent details!
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
Hmm, I doubt it. I think I’ve already got all my faves lined up.
6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?
Yes! I want to read more varied high fantasy, so I’m vaguely making a plan to seek out and request more books of that nature. I also want to read more nonfiction! I barely read any this year; I’m not quite sure why. I used to read a ton of nonfiction but ever since I started blogging I’ve been avoiding it for some reason. I have more reading goals, but I’ll probably make another post with all my reading resolutions for 2019!
