I’ve never done a tag blog post before but watching a couple of BookTube videos really got me inspired so here we go. Ariel Bissett came up with these simple questions that excited the bookdragon inside so much and I reckoned – why not spread the joy. So here is my written version of The End of the Year Book Tag.
Are there any books you’ve started this year that you need to finish?
All of them! There are a lot of books that I started this year and never got around to finish. Books slumps, mood swings, you name it – I had it. But if I’m being realistic – I would like to finish Originals by Adam Grant, Uprooted by Naomi Novik and The Unfinished Tales by J. R. R. Tolkien.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
The answer to this question you will find in my next article and I’m not giving up any more spoilers.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
For next year, I’m hoping we can finally put our hands on The Winds of Winter! Seriously! The next Cormoran Strike novel is also on the list, so English authors – don’t disappoint! And for Bulgarian readers – Martin Kolev’s second book about the Bulgarian wizards! What the hell is that – you ask – come back in two weeks to find out.
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
The three I’ve already mentioned – Originals, Uprooted and Unfinished Tales, plus Dracula by Bram Stoker but that last one might be a bit of a stretch.
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
I was putting my money on Uprooted but so far I don’t think that is going to happen. It’s a good book, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s going to win BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?
Have I start making lists for 2018… Let’s see… Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie/re-read/, The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton, A Good Month for Murder by Del Quentin Wilber, The Mr. Monk Series by Lee Goldberg, The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, Slaughter House by Kurt Vonnegut, try with Stephen King again, start reading Jules Vern, oh wait, … /3 days later/ and maybe try Lovecraft again.
So that is it from me! As per usual, I also have The End of the Year Book Tag video you can watch here. And if you want to do the tag yourself – TAG! You’re it!
