Can you believe the year is almost over? We’re so close to December. So close to moving into 2020. It’s crazy! So around this time of year there’s always a bunch of posts going around reflecting on the year, but also posts like this, talking about the last things you want to achieve before the year is over.

This tag was originally created by  Ariel @ArielBisset.


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


Because You Love To Hate Me  The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

There were some books I started and then put back down again because I just wasn’t in the right mood for it or I got distracted by life stuff. Sometimes when I get a bit slumpy I have no idea what I’m in the mood for and I just try until something sticks, so I end up having read a little bit of a million different books. I’m not counting any of those because I will start them over again when I pick them back up. The only two I will continue where I left off are two short story collections. I’m not particularly enjoying either of them but I just want to be done with them.


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

So I might be really predictable with this answer but… the first illustrated Harry Potter book? I only just got it and I plan to read it snuggled up in a blanket on a gloomy day with an #aesthetic hot beverage in my hand. Can I be a member of the basic bitch reader club now?😂 No but really… I can’t wait.


Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?


the wives

Welll… I do not plan on buying any more books this year. But if The Wives by Tarryn Fisher, which releases in December,  becomes available on my audiobook app then I will jump on that straight away.


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


Mockingjay  The titans curse  The battle of the labyrinth  The last olympian

This would be more than three but I would love to finish up some series I have owned and left half-read for years. Can you believe I never read Mockingjay? I’m such a fake book blogger haha.


Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book ofthe year?


Crooked Kingdom  astonishing color of after

If there were any it would be either of these two, which I have on my physical TBR shelf. Crooked Kingdom because everyone seems to cry or freak out over that one and I loved Six of Crows. The Astonishing Color of After because this was on lots of people’s favorites list last year and I expect it to be a very emotional read.


Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?


Generally, I read very slow, which is why in previous years thirty books seemed like a good challenge. Reading a little under a book a week was just about right. Recently though, I’ve been reading 2 books a week most weeks. So I plan on actually making it a thing to read 2 books a week. Averaging out my goal to 100 books for 2020. That seems so scary. I also plan on picking around 20 books of my physical TBR that I have to get to or otherwise unhaul by the end of the year.

  1. The Astonishing Color of After and Crooked Kingdom are two of my all time favorites, so I really hope you’ll love them. Ah, I have so many books on my physical tbr that it’s becoming ridiculous at this point, so I should really do what you plan to, and pick at least some that I must finish by the end of next year. Great post!

    1. I hope so too! I have really high hopes for both of them. Physicak tbr’s are both a blessing and a curse. It’s so nice to have so things to choose from at any moment, but it can get out of control so easily. I’m currently sitting at around 50 books so that’s still somewhat manageable. But I’m barely reading from it and continuously adding to it 😂 So something needs to change. I hope this works out for us both 🙂
