it’s friday my friends and i think it’s time i do another book tag! do you agree? of course you do! 😀 i saw this tag on ariel bissetts booktube channel and since the weather sucks and it’s cold, i figured this tag is perfect. so let’s just get to it:
1.) are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
i started “dragonfly in amber” by diana gabaldon, when i was in cuba in march this year! yes, it’s been a long time. and i just got stuck and didn’t continue. i really want to though and it was on my tbr for #sequelseptember, but i don’t think it will happen this month… life guys, life. but i really would like to finish it this year, just to continue with the series.
“little women” by louisa may alcott was another book i started earlier this year. my problem with this one was, that i read many classics at that time and somehow got overwhelmed, that’s why i put it aside. but i really want to finish it, because i enjoyed it.
2.) do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
i am a big mood reader and every time i want to do a readathon or a challenge, i suck at it, because i never pick up the books, i want to read. i really don’t know what’s wrong with me haha 😀 maybe i just can’t handle the pressure. but i figured that these two books fit into the autumn time too, since they won’t be happening in #sequelseptember.
“the fear” by charlie higson is the third book in the series and i really wanted to finish the series this year. i am sure it won’t happen, but maybe i’ll get to this one.
“golden son” by pierce brown is the second book in the series and since “red rising” was kind of dark, i think “golden son” will be a good read for the fall. and since autumn colors are kind of golden, this fits perfectly. 😀
3.) is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
there are many releases i am still waiting for, but “turtles all the way down” by john green is by far the one, i am most excited about. i am trying not to get my hopes up to high for it, but i guess that won’t be possible. i just want this book in my hands!!!
4.) what are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
i started my “one austen a month” project this year and i was very good at it. until “emma”. somehow i never got around to picking it up. i think my “war & peace” read is getting in the way. but i definitely want to read “emma” this year, because i want to say, that i read all of jane austens novels in 2017. 😀
“big little lies” by liane moriarty is another book i really want to read this year. i saw the first episode of the show and i loved it. i decided to read the book first, before continuing with the show, but somehow that never happened. but it needs to. i am so excited for this one!
and last but not least, i really want to read “history is all you left me” by adam silvera. i’ve been meaning to read this for such a long time. and since i came back with a signed copy from the us back in july, it’s been sitting on my shelf and starring at me. i am bad, i know!
5.) is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
i don’t want to repeat myself, but if “turtles all the way down” is good, it could maybe beat “kids of appetite” by david arnold or “a man called ove” by fredrik backman. these were definitely two of the best books i’ve read this year. but who knows? maybe it will be “godsgrave” by jay kristoff? i am still at the beginning of this, but i love it so far and i have a feeling, that it will blow my mind!
6.) have you already started making reading plans for 2018?
yes i did! i decided not to make so many plans, because it’s obvious, that i can’t stick to them hahaha 😀
that’s it. i hope you liked my answers! let me know your answers in the comments! 🙂
i am gonna tag some people, but if you want to do this tag, please do it! 🙂
