I feel like at this point, the End of the Year Book Tag and the Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag are more just yearly posts instead of actual tags for me, because I do them every year and I don’t get tagged (and usually don’t tag anyone either). Actually, most of the tags I do I’m not actually tagged in!
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Oh god, I have so many unfinished books from this year! I really need to start writing them all down when I start them so I remember which ones I started, because half the time I forget that I started them. One that comes to mind right away is To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, because I got it as an ARC but didn’t get a chance to finish it before the release date, and now I have a physical copy so I would really like to finish it!
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Well technically I’ve already read a few autumnal books for the fall, but one that I need to finish that really has fall vibes is Horrid by Katrina Leno. I got it in an Owlcrate box so I would really like to finish it!
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
After scrolling through my 2020 releases list, I can’t say that there are any that I’m DYING to read, but I am looking forward to A Deal with the Elf King by Elise Kova and These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong because they both sound really interesting! But all the releases on my November 2020 releases list all sound good, it’ll just depend on how much money I can afford to spend and which ones I can get!
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
I have so many books that I would like to finish before the end of the year, and apart from Horrid and To Sleep in a Sea of Stars that I mentioned earlier, three others that I would like to read before the end of the year are The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn by Tyler Whitesides, The Open House by Sam Carrington, and The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson.
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
I always find this to be a tough question to answer, because you never know what book might become a favorite. I always go into a book hoping that I love it, and at this point I’m not sure if any other books can crack my top 5 favorite books this year. I think I would be really surprised if it’s something other than fantasy though!
Have you already started making reading plans for 2021?
Surprisingly no! Normally by this time of year I would have at least something in mind, but I haven’t even started thinking about 2021 and what I want to read. At this point I’m just focusing on getting through the shitshow that is 2020! I think in general, I want to read more adult fantasy than YA fantasy, more diverse books, and more books that are outside my comfort zone, but I haven’t made any concrete goals or plans yet.
What are your answers to these questions? I can’t believe that I don’t have any plans made yet for 2021, I really need to start thinking about that!
