I saw this tag done recently by Vicki and Sue, and it looked like fun. We only have 1 month left of this year (this DECADE, oh my god) so it feels like the right time to be thinking about how I’m going to end the year.
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Oh, yeah. More than a few. I still haven’t finished Fate of the Fallen by Kel Kade, Find Me by Andre Aciman, Diplomatic Immunity by Lois McMaster Bujold. There are a couple more that I started, but these 3 are the ones I really want to get back to before the end of the year.
2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
I read A Match Made for Thanksgiving by Jackie Lau and Dark Harvest by Norman Partridge, which have very different autumn vibes. I’m past the hankering for autumn books and have fully fallen into the holiday romance novel hole.
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
There is a new Roni Loren coming out on December 31st which I am super pumped for. I loved the first 3 books in this series and I am excited to get Kincaid’s story. The new Cat Sebastian is coming out on December 10th as well.
4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
Ooh, that’s a hard one. I’ve spoken about my complete inability to follow a TBR before, and I don’t want to tempt fate here. But I would like to get to Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse, Give the Dark My Love by Beth Revis, and A Nearly Normal Family by M.T. Edvardsson.
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh, maybe the Roni Loren? I have no idea!
6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
I have several pre-orders already in for 2020, and a couple ARCs that come out next year that I need to get to. I will of course set my Goodreads challenge to 50 books, but since these last 2 years I have hit (or at least I will have assumed I have hit) 200 books, I will unofficially be banking on at least another 200. As for what titles I plan to pick up, I will be following my usual randomly-picking-this-up-because-I-want-to-read-it-in-this-specific-moment method of picking them out.
