End of Year Book Tag 2019

I cannot believe another year is gone already! It seems like just yesterday that it was 2018 and my family was attempting to sell our house. Oh, how many changes have occurred in a matter of 12 months. Anyway, I did this book tag at the end of last year (you can check it out here) and I really enjoyed it. It kind of gives you a view of both what you accomplished as well as how you want to wrap-up at the end of the year.

In fact, there will be only one more post going up before the new year, 2020!

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

Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

I have a few I’m currently reading, but most of them I don’t need to finish before the end of the year. The only one I really want to finish is this one.

2. Do you have an autumn book to transition to the end of the year?

The Institute

I read this book in October, expecting it to be horror, but it has this odd dynamic of half fantasy and half horror. I read it for Halloween, but much of the story is set during winter, giving this perfect feel of fall transitioning to winter vibe.

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

Not for this year. I rarely keep up with new releases in general (I only have a handful for even next year I’m looking forward too).

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

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1)
All Things Considered
Halo: The Fall of Reach (Halo, #1)

I technically want to read a lot more than these three books by the end of the year, but these are the three I will be mostly focusing on and the three I think I can actually get done (maybe) by the end of the year.

5. Is there a book that you think could still shock you and become your FAVORITE???

The Illustrated Man

I didn’t quite know how to answer this question last year either. How am I to know what will be my new favorite before I even read it? Last year I answered with a classic example, so I give this one as a classic too. I do want to read this book next year, and I have really enjoyed every book I read by Ray Bradbury, so it’s a good bet.

6. Have you already made reading plans for 2020?

Unlike this year of 2019, I’m purposefully not making any plans for reading because I know I’ll be so busy. However, I will be making my Goodreads goal of 104 books to read. But that’s about it. I don’t know what I’m reading or any challenges I might try.

How did your reading go this year? Are there any books you’re trying to finish in the next couple days? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments, follow my blog for more musings and, as always,

Best wishes in your life full of adventure,

Madame Writer

  1. I hope every book you’ll read in 2020 brings you great pleasure! I didn’t read much this year. Now I’m reading a series of four novels about Naples by ELena Ferrante. I’ve read the first two books and they’re so good that they made me stay up, though they’re a little bitter and dark.
    Good luck with your reading journey in 2020. You are really great!

      1. There’s an adaptation, produced by HBO, of the first novel named My brilliant Girlfriend(L’amica geniale), which is popular among Chinese audience. I don’t know if it’s popular in America. I have no time to watch the drama yet, but so far I’ve enjoyed the series of novels.
