It’s Book Tag time!
I’ve completed this tag in previous years and thought it would be fun to revisit it again now, so let’s talk books…
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
At the moment there isn’t anything outstanding other than whatever I happen to be reading at the time.
I recently started reading The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman which is the first book in a series, so I might try and read at least one more of those before the end of the year, and there are a couple of other books I would like to try and read which I’ll mention later in this post.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Not specifically, although I do find myself seeking out more Gothic type tales at this time of year, and I try to pick something a little seasonal around Christmas time so am open to suggestions for titles I should check out.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
There’s a recent release that I haven’t read yet but am very much looking forward to and that’s The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton.
I also haven’t read the latest from Stephen King yet either.
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
- The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal – I want to read this as I don’t read much sci-if and fancy a change. I recently finished the first of the Glamourist Histories by the same author and loved that so thought I’d check out her take on a different genre.
- Perhaps another of the Glamourist Histories or another Invisible Library book by Genevieve Cogman.
- I’d probably like to fit in at least one festive read, but don’t have a particular title in mind at the moment.
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
There have been quite a few books I’ve loved already this year. If I finally get around to reading The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow I do wonder whether that could be one I’d add to my favourites of the year.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
Not even slightly! The usual Goodreads challenge goal may feature, but beyond that, no, not yet at least.
Are there any books you’re really hoping to read before the end of this year?
As always, feel free to consider yourself tagged if you fancy having a go at this one.
