Hello! Today I have another edition of the End of the Year Book Tag!
Before I get into the 2021 edition of this tag, I was reading my 2020 edition and there are some things I noticed. I didn’t get to the book I wanted to read by the end of the year; I didn’t stick with my 2021 reading plan and I didn’t finish any of the books that I said I would before the end of the year. What I did find interesting though, is there is a question that is something like ‘do you think there is a book that could surprise you and become a favourite’. I actually was surprised by one of the last books I read in 2020, which was Hunted by Meagan Spooner! I loved that one and was not expecting to love it as much as I did.
That was just a quick reflection on last years tag, so let’s get into this years end of the year book tag:
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
So many. I have a really bad habit of starting books and then putting them to the side. So a few of the ones that I have started but haven’t finished are:
- Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
- Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
- Ariadne by Jennifer Saint
- All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace
- Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
- Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco
So, just a few. And I am pretty sure there are more but I cannot think of them right now!
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
I actually haven’t had one this year. Maybe I used The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling because it is a romance which I associate with summer but it is Halloween themed so quite a nice transition or maybe Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead because it is an urban fantasy that is set around the autumn I think.
Is there a new releases you’re still waiting for?
Not this year! The last book I was waiting for was Midnight in Everwood by M.A. Kuzniar which came out in October, so no more new releases for me this year!
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
I really, really want to finish Ariadne by Jennifer Saint. I started this one months ago and I really want to finish it. I also want to read Midnight in Everwood by M.A. Kuzniar or really any Christmas themed read!
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
This went so well last year, so it really could be any book! At the moment I am expecting to enjoy all of the ones I am planning to read, so time will tell whether I will be blown away by a book!
Have you already started making reading plans for 2022?
I actually don’t have any solid plans right now, however I do have one arc that is going to be released in February 2022, which is Lockdown on London Lane by Beth Reekles. But other than that I don’t have too many plans for 2022!
The end of the year tag is a very popular one, so if you have done it, link your posts in the comments so I can read your answers! I love reading these posts and seeing how much more organised other people are than I am!
