TAG: The End of the Year Book Tag

I kind of freaked out when I first saw this tag. Pretty much anything to do with Christmas and the end of the year pretty much sends me into a tailspin if it’s not December already!

I’ve decided to approach this just as any other tag and ignore the name of it though because it’s got some cool questions in! I’m also not tagging people but if you’d like to take part have at it!

Thanks to Mischenko over at Read Rant Rock & Roll, sorry about the freak-out with my winter anxiety! Everyone go say Hi to her and help me apologise!

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

No. I had a few DNF’s but I have no intention of going back to them.

Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

No. My books are all jumbled on a list and I read based on how they fall on that list. If I read an autumnalย one in autumn it will be pure chance.

Is there a new release youโ€™re still waiting for?

Clockwork City by Paul Crilley, it’s out early December and is the follow up to last year’s Poison City which was outstanding. I emailed the publicisit last week to beg and plead for a review copy so everything is crossed!

What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Kings of the Wyld, The Court of Broken Knives, and Princess of Blood

Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?

I know I used it in my last answer, but given everything I’ve been told about it by other book bloggers and a few authors as well Kings of the Wyld. I have a feeling it’s going to completely blow my mind, I’m actually a little annoyed with myself for not having had time to read it yet.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

Not really, I don’t really plan my reading as such. As I said I have a spreadsheet and all the books I have are on that spreadsheet and I have a process for ensuring I get everything read. I don’t have scheduled books for each month when I tried doing that I got really stressed and stopped reading, so I’m much more fluid now. I do have books I know are coming out in 2018 which I will want to read, most are continuations of series but otherwise, I’m fairly laid back, I am going to try not to get into too many new series next year because I am reading far too many!

  1. Clockwork City, woop woop! Fingers crossed for you!๐Ÿ˜€ Should be epic, Poison City was fantastic.

    That’s a cool trio of books, Princess of Blood is great (yet to post my review cos I’m a slacker), TCOBK is also great and Kings of the Wyld is just pure f#cking awesome, I love that book and have been shouting its praise to everyone since I read and reviewed it way back in January. Trust in Drew, you NEED to read it!!!๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜€

    Spreadsheets?!? Bwahahahaha!๐Ÿ˜‚ I just read what I want, when I want regardless of ARC, when it’s released, etc. Only thing I plan is when books that are part of a series I follow are released otherwise, spreadsheet and scheduled reading, the horror!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚
