Funny enough, I don’t think I’ve ever done this tag … even though I’ve seen it or something like this for the past couple of years. My reading mood as been all over the map this year, so I’m actually excited that I might hit my goal of reading 30 books before the end of the year!
Thank you so much Nikki @ The Night is Dark and Full of Books for tagging me to do this! Being tagged in this has really put into perspective my need to get reading before the end of the year ha-ha. Make sure to read Nikki’s post and visit her blog, since both are absolutely incredible!

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
I started Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett earlier this year, but wasn’t feeling it … so I put it on hold. Erica @ a_feast_of_pages and I decided to buddy read it together … but we’re both kind of struggling? I’m almost halfway through now though, so I feel like I’ve invested enough time to justify the need to finish it.
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman is a must finish for me! Honestly, I was really enjoying it — it just so happened I twisted my ankle and was in constant pain due to pre-appendix issues (when I didn’t know I had appendicitis) when trying to read this book … and my reading mood just dropped. I’m actually excited to get back into it *Loki is so mischievous, it’s hilarious*.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Lucky for me, I received an ARC for K.A. Tucker’s Forever Wild … which was the perfect transition book! The Christmas and winter vibes are so wholesome! I absolutely adored this book, with all the cozy vibes and feeling of community and love in the air.
I’ve become slightly addicted to Talia Hibbert, after reading two of three books in her Brown Sisters series. So I decided to give myself an early Christmas treat and purchased her Wrapped Up in You novel, which is only available for Kobo I think. I have a feeling it will be a great book *swooning already*.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I was eager to read Tucker’s Forever Wild, not thinking I’d get it before the end of the year … but then I got the ARC … MUAH HA HA HA HA! I can’t really think of anything else, to be honest. I’m really bad for keeping up to date on new releases, since I’m typically catching up on books that were popular like 2 years ago ha-ha!
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
I’ve been re-reading Armstrong’s Cainsville series, which has been a lot of fun. I’d love to finish Visions, the second book in the series, before the end of the year. Eames’ Bloody Rose is a must read … seriously, I was gifted this book by the author so long ago … it’s really sad that I haven’t finished it yet, let alone started it. Bennett’s Chasing Lucky was a late birthday gift from my aunt, and I have a feeling it will be a good pick me up for the holidays … her books are always so wholesome.
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite of the year?
I actually have really high hopes for Bloody Rose by Nicholas Eames. His first book in the series, Kings of the Wyld, was fantastic! I laughed so hard throughout that series … it made me want to get back into fantasy books. Hopefully my assumptions are right.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2021?
Not really? I used to be a planner for reading each year, but I’ve just come to realize I’m way too much of a mood reader to do this. There are a few books that I know are releasing that I’ll probably get my hands on … but we shall see.
I do think I will set my limit to 30 books again. Then I’ll reassess in the summer and see if I want to expand that or not.
Tag! You’re it!
Alright … I won’t cheat out this time. I’ve tagged a few people but please feel free to try this tag out! And make sure to let me know if you do — I love reading your answers!
