I cannot believe that there are only twenty-five days remaining in 2018! The year has flown by for me and I am really excited for a fresh start (this year has had the lowest of lows for me). But before I skip on into the new year, I wanted to do the end of the year book tag! Many thanks to Abmost Fiction and Destiny @ Howling Libraries for tagging me, we all know that I love a good reflection!
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
This question honestly kind of makes me anxious, haha. I am currently reading four books that I would like to finish before the end of the year (soon to be five as my buddy read for Illuminae begins tonight). Here’s what I am currently reading and how far I am:
From Novice to Master: An Ongoing Lesson in the Extent of My Own Stupidity
by Soko Morinaga (re-read)
Firefly: Big Damn Hero
by James Lovegrove
Unbelievable (Pretty Little Liars, #4)
by Sara Shepard
Once Upon a River
by Diane Setterfield [ARC]
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1)
by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I also have four books on my ‘Not Now’ shelf, and although I am not likely to get to all of them, it would be nice to wrap up these as well! All of these books I picked up but wasn’t in the right mood or mindset to read; with This Cruel Design and Vengeful it is actually fear based and I have an upcoming post talking about that.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Not really, no.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I am anxiously awaiting my copy of Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful by Arwen Elys Dayton to arrive and it is my last 2018 release! I was really excited to see it was this month’s pick for the Mysterious Galaxy Book Subscription after seeing Justine’s review!
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
Uhh.. I listed 9 in the first question. If I had to choose which three from that list: Illuminae, Firefly, and Vengeful.
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
It’s possible! I am really excited for Illuminae because it is a SQUAD Buddy read and we are reading along with the audiobook – which I have heard is full cast and incredible.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?
Have you met me? Of course I have begun making plans for 2019, but I am not ready to share them yet. 😁
