As December will soon be upon us, it seemed like a good time to look at my reading plans to get to the end of 2019. Thus, book tag!
One thing not covered below is the fact that my Goodreads Reading Challenge is current at 70 of 85 books. I would like to hit my goal (which I already reduced from 100 when it was clear that wasn’t going to happen), which means I have a lot of reading to do!
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
There are the four books I’m currently reading: Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert, Young and Damned and Fair by Gareth Russell, I Like to Watch by Emily Nussbaum (audio), and The Vagina Bible by Jennifer Gunter (audio). Also I want to get back to reading Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir.
There are, of course, more books that I started and then put down for whatever reason but I think finishing those five would be a good start.
2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
No, not really. That said, I did pick up Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella because, even though the most recent books were not that great, I still love this series. I was considering trying to re-read all of the other books before getting to this one but I think I’ve run out of time!
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
Yes, a friend of mine has a romance novella coming out Dec 1 that sounds adorable: Faux Ho Ho by ‘Nathan Burgoine.
4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
Other than the ones I’ve already mentioned: Broken by Karin Fossum, Honey and Clover by Chica Umino (multiple volumes but I’m going to count it as a single title here), and After Atlas by Emma Newman.
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
I don’t think so but it’s always possible.
6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
I’ve made some vague plans, mostly checking out the 2020 Reading Women Challenge, and also thinking that I might try again to hit the elusive 100 books goal for Goodreads.
