Today I wanted to do a TAG post. This is the End of the Year BookTAG, created by Ariel Bissett.
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Ready Player One. I read the first chapter and then gave it to my husband to read (because I thought he’d really like it and because I have plenty of other books I wanted to read) I really liked that first chapter, so I want to pick it back up soon.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
I prefer reading classics in autumn, not sure why but it just works better for me. I recently started reading Persuasion by Jane Austen. I only ever read Pride and Prejudice by her and I’m happy to broaden my Austen horizon.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I’m forever waiting for Circe by Madeline Miller but it only comes out next year…
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
– The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
– The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
– Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (to finish up the series)
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
Honestly? Any of the three mentioned in the last question. I haven’t had a lot of luck this year. I’ll have to get a serious reading-mood going for the remaining months to get through the books I want to finish and hopefully find some more favourites.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?
I’m thinking about choosing five of my favourite books to reread. I rarely reread books, which is a shame really because they are favourites for a reason. The Song of Achilles and The Night Circus will definitely be on the list, the others I’ll have to think about.
If you want to answer these questions, let me know so I can read about your autumn reading plans.
