End of the Year Book Tag

Good day bibliophiles, 2019 is so close to ending I guess it’s about time to reflect on the books that has been sitting on my shelf, collecting dust for so long. It’s time to give the some attention and try to get into them as much as I can.

Let’s start with the End of the Year Book Tag

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

I’ve started this book last year but never got the chance to make any dent because I wasn’t able to get into the world that much.  Then for a 24 hour readathon, I tried reading it, both physically and in audiobook.  I still failed to get into the world.  But I know this time around, I need to give it another chance because it is a well loved book by everyone.  I know it is great but I need to focus on it, I might enjoy it the third time around.

Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

I don’t have any autumnal book to read but I think a contemporary book would do the trip.  I think I have a few books in line with that.

Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

I’ve been out of the book community for far too long, with that I’ve not read any new releases nor know any new releases before the year ends.  I have one book but it releases next year for sure.

What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

There is one book that I’ve been putting off from reading for far too long, and just recently, I’ve decided to read it finally.

Sea Witch by Sarah Henning is the book I’m talking about.  I knew that I was going to love this book but not this much.  I love mermaids so much that really pushed me reading this book.  I didn’t expect that this book is really great!  I am in love with how the story was written and how the characters are being portrayed. The plot twist was something I didn’t see coming and I loved it.  I love not reading books that are predictable because they make the book less interesting.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?

In 2018, I achieved my Goodreads reading challenge with 50 books. So in 2019, I made my goal 52 because I thought I was going to reach it. But towards the middle of the year, I put it down to 40 because I knew that I won’t be able to read that much book with work.  So as 2020 is approaching, I’ve decided not to pressure myself.  I’ve decided to just set a goal of 40 books next year.

That’s about it for today’s book tag blog post! I hope I’d keep track with this list and that I might be able to achieve these.

Thank you and see you on my next blog post!
