There’s nothing like scrambling to do everything before the end of the year is out, hey? That’s me. I made a to do list a few days ago, and I don’t think I’ve even accomplished half of what was on it. Granted, these last few days have been a special brand of hell for me on a personal level, so yeah, there’s that.
My lovely friend Brooklynne tagged me to do this post a week ago, and I’m just getting to it now. Oops.
The original tag is over on Destiny’s blog – go check it out!
Let’s just jump on in!
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Okay so technically I read 20 pages of both The Priory of the Orange Tree and Wilder Girls, but I decided to make Wilder Girls my first read of 2020 because I need to start the New Year off with a lesbian book.
But the actual answer is yes – the book I am currently reading I need to finish. Which is Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed.
2. Do you have
autumnal spring books to transition into the end of the year?
I’ve never actually thought of this before? So I’m stealing Brooklynne’s answer of With The Fire On High because it looks very spring related!
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
Not for 2019, no. But I have many 2020 releases I am excited for! The most obvious being This Coven Won’t Break by Isabel Sterling (the sequel/second book to my most favourite book of the year – These Witches Won’t Burn).
4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
*sweats nervously* Umm, the last day of the year is tomorrow, so I don’t think it’s possible for me to read the books I actually want to read in that time. I am a slow reader (as we have established in the past), so it’s going to be a tough time for me to even finish Yes No Maybe So.
But if I had done this at the start of December when I first saw this tag, I would have said: Red, White, And Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim.
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
Definitely not. My favourite book is firmly set in stone. And considering I’m reading a het book right now, there is zero percent chance that my lesbian and queer witches book is going to be de-throned. Call Down The Hawk couldn’t even manage that, so a het book has no hope in hell lol.
6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
I have a little! I have something planned to do for a post, which I don’t want to say too much about, because it won’t be fun then, but I have about 5-8 books officially planned to read in 2020 as soon as possible.
I also have a fair few advanced reader copies from Net Galley that I want to read as soon as possible, too.
And that’s it!
Thank you to Brooklynne for tagging me!
I feel like there is no point in tagging anyone else since it’s the 30th of December today, but if you see this, and you want to do this tag, feel free! Tag me in your post so I can come and see it and give you some loves!
