I cannot believe another year has gone by once again! 😮 Lot’s of things like last Christmas feel like only yesterday and it’s nearly Christmas again, I find it really easy to lose track of the weeks… Anyway, I saw this tag on Romweasley and decided it’s the perfect tag for now especially with time going so fast and all 😉
1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
I need to finish Faith of the Fallen by Terry Goodkind as I ordered it and the previous one way back in the summer and have been putting off reading them as other shorter books came and needed to be read 😛 I don’t think Goodkind’s books are bad or anything, just that they’re very long, heavy and need to be savoured over time which is why I take so long to read them.
2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Well I did read the Bone Queen by Alison Croggon and Deep Water by Pamela Freeman and whilst those books aren’t specified for any season, I just feel they are books to curl up with while the days get darker and colder mostly because of their vivid descriptions of nature… These always seem to remind me of the seasons changing so these are book two series’ I’ll be disappointed to finish 😛
3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
I needed this book like…. yesterday, but it doesn’t come out until May next year 😦
4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
As usual the priority books on my TBR are always changing and knowing me I probably won’t even get one of these books finished by January 😛 These are books from my college library that I’ve had out and renewed countless times so no one needs to tell me that I need to get a move on with them.
“So many books, so little time.”
5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
Well I’m still kind of hoping the Lucifer Code by Michael Cordy will pick up and start to surprise especially with its themes of philosophy but I’m close to half way and still don’t feel any special liking to the plot or characters. Other than that all the books I read I hope will pleasantly surprise me, Dan Brown certainly did last year 😉
6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?
Not really, I mean I have my reading plan for my Seoul trip in December-January but apart from that I tend to read any of the books that come my way or have sat on my TBR the longest. I have mentioned before, but at the moment I’m not allowed to request any more books due to the amount I have out from both my college and the public library and I promised those around me that I’d bring those numbers down before taking out or requesting any more. *sigh*….
