¡Hola, mi gente! September is almost over! What? How? Why? Where did time go? As much as I love fall and winter I am not ready for it because I don’t want the year to end. But there’s an upside I am so ready to do end of year posts. I’m starting with the End of Year Book Tag which is not an actual end of year tag but a tag where you talk about the next few months before the year ends. This tag was created by Ariel Bisset an amazing booktuber with great content. You should check out the original video. Anyway, enough blabbering. Let’s go on with the post.
Question #1: Are there any books you started that you need to finish?
I am the queen of accidentally dnfing books. I put books on pause and then ignore them for months only to give up on them. But this doesn’t mean that I just ignore every single book I put on pause. There are some books that I told myself I have to get to and those are
Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore
Nonnonba by Shigeru Mizuki
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
Dreadnought by April Daniels
Broken Beautiful Hearts by Kami Garcia
I put Blanca & Roja and Wilder Girls on pause because the writing style was driving me insane. Nonnoba because it was for a class and then the professor changed plans. Dreadnought because it was too much. It kept breaking my heart and I wasn’t in the right place for it. Lastly, I put on pause Broken Beautiful Hearts because my loan for the audiobook expired and even though I own the ebook I never felt motivated to finish it.
Question #2: Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Sadly, I don’t. I wish I was the type of reader whose reading mood changes with the season. I’ve tried to fake it ’till I make it but no luck so far.
Question #3: Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I only have one book for this question because my most anticipated releases of the year are all out except for this one and that’s Starsight by Brandon Sanderson (Goodreads page). I’m not one to continue series but I really liked Skyward and I feel like I should try to continue it.
Question #4: What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
This one is too easy. Apart from the books I put on pause, I also want to finish the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. I loved book one and even though I’m excited to continue it, I can’t seem to be in the mood for it.
Question #5: Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
I’ve read so many good books this year that I believe can’t be topped—check out the list on my Mid Year Freak Out Tag—BUT I would be extremely shocked and happy if Wilder Girls by Rory Power became a favorite.
Question #6: Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
Yes, I plan to try to read more books from my books-I-own TBR, read more sequels, and read more books that are out of my comfort zone.
Well, that was my End of the Year Book Tag. What are some books you need to read before the year ends? Comment down below and
