Good morning my loves!
Well what do you know, another post being written is haste, the evening before it’s due to live… When will I ever learn?! It’s been 25 years so maybe I just need to resign myself to the fact that I’m just not that organized.
Anway, enough of the rambling. Today’s post is a tag that I’ve loved reading on other blogs and watching on booktube channels, and that is The End of Year Book Tag! I saw this on Ariel Bissett‘s channel and I’ve now spent hours on the autoplay just watching the videos back to back.
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Honestly, I haven’t DNF’ed any books this year, and the only ones that I’ve started but haven’t finished are the ones that I am currently reading…. soooooo…. I guess not!
2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Generally around this time of the year is when I start my annual Harry Potter re-read (or re-listen as there is something so completely comforting about the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry), this year however I’ve decided to begin my re-read with the illustrated editions. I’m more than a little gutted that we won’t be getting The Goblet of Fire until next year, but I suppose I’ll cope!
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I’m going to be writing a post soon rounding up all of the books that I am super excited for in the first quarter of the 2019, I then plan on doing them every four months. So, keep your eyes peeled for that post, coming soon! As for the end of 2018, there’s nothing that comes to mind?
4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
I plan on re-reading Christmas Days by Jeanette Winterson again this year, because I just loved it so much last year (plus, the gorgeous paperback came out in November and it’s beautifully illustrated with french flaps!). I’d also like to read City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab and The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware (which is one of my 5 star predictions).
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
At this point in the year, I think I’m pretty set on what my favourites of the year are, but who knows, something could come out of left field!
6.Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?
I do have a couple of plans for 2019, the primary one is to get the January proofs read, of which I have 8 currently, before even attempting to make any other goals. I think (seeing as I think I’ve failed momentously with my 2018 goals) I’m not going to set many goals, so as I’m not setting myself up to fail….
And there we have it! My End of Year Book Tag for 2018. I might try to make it an annual tradition to do this every year. What do you think? Leave a comment below!
