2019 End of the Year Book Tag

I had a lot of fun doing this tag last year, so when I saw this one doing the rounds again, I thought I’ll do it right away without waiting for anyone to tag me. I found this year’s version at Hamad’s blog, The Book Prescription. If you wanna checkout more amazing bookish content and awesome reviews, make sure to go and checkout their blog.

And now let’s get started with the tag…


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

I started reading Mistborn: The Final Empire and got to about 20% before I stopped coz I wasn’t in the mood. And I definitely am hoping (or wishful thinking mostly) that I’ll be able to pick it up again and finish before the year ends.

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

I’m not much of a seasonal reader like everyone else, so I actually don’t have any such transitional books.

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

There are a couple of books which have recently released that I haven’t been able to get to yet, but the one book that I’m highly anticipating which releases at the end of the year is A Scarcity of Condors.

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

I hardly have a month left, so I don’t know if I will be able to finish all three of them but I would love to be able to read Jade War, Two Serpents Rise and Fireborne before the year ends.

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

The Queen of Nothing

I will truly be shocked if this book becomes a favorite of mine, but I still hold out hope that I will be able to experience the magic in this series that everyone else seems to find. I do have a six week waiting list at my library, so I don’t think I might get a chance to read it before the year ends.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?

In a huge contrast from last year, I actually have started making plans for 2020 which include an yearly backlist TBR as well as some other ideas for the blog.

    1. Ahana!!!! I didn’t expect to select QoN either… but I couldn’t think of anything else… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      And I finished reading it too.. I know it was never gonna be a favorite.. it’s a 3 star series for me.. just fun to read but not too deep 😜😜

        Ohh!! So the first time I started The Cruel Prince I just couldn’t get into it. I started it again later in the year and really liked it. I still haven’t read book two. πŸ™ˆ

        1. If you liked the first book a lot, then you’ll definitely like the others as well… I don’t dispute that’s it’s very easy to read and entertaining.. I guess I just never fell in love with the couple 😬😬

        1. I’ve only been in the US for less than a decade, so even Halloween doesn’t register as a specific spooky season for me.. also because we have two important Indian festivals during the same time… So I agree, just read whatever interests me at the moment… I’m too moody to decide based on the weather πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Ya.. I keep planning to read by end of the year but I’ll probably postpone… frankly speaking, I only want to read it because everyone else has and not because I’m truly interested 😜😜😜

  2. ahhhh i can’t believe it’s already the end of the year!!! where did the time go???

    also i am so relieved i’m not the only one who doesn’t see the hype in the Cruel Prince etc.

    hope you have a wonderful rest of the reading year!!

  3. I hope you manage to get most of these read. And that the waitlist goes down a bit. I currently have over 100 day wait for Wilder Girls πŸ˜” I only had a 30 day wait before but then I had no internet access and it was an online copy so I couldn’t read it and then out of nowhere the waitlist became massive. Good luck with your 2020 plans too. I can’t believe how many releases I have listed for then already πŸ˜…

    1. I hope I get to read them too…!!!! And yes, I totally understand what you mean… the ebook waitlists are too high and move so slowly… I have one anthology which has a 14 week waitlist.. I’ll even forget why I wanted to read it by the time I get it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      And ya.. my 2020 release list is already too high and i don’t even know anything about the second half of the year… too many to read πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

      1. Oh no that’s awful. I find it odd which ones do & don’t have waiting lists at times though. Some new releases you can get instantly, others you have to wait months. Hopefully the waitlist for that anthology will go down.
        Definitely. There are so many books coming out all of the time.

        1. Ohh I know right… I keep checking the ebook catalog religiously on Tuesdays and I get some books instantly… and others have waitlists right from the get go.. it really is funny …
          And ya, there’s too many coming out which I need to read and I lose interest in the slightly older ones 😬😬😬

          1. Yeah it’s definitely odd. Especially as sometimes the books that I’ve heard about most have the shortest waits πŸ€”
            I’m still interested in older ones too. It’s just impossible to read everything πŸ˜…

          2. Ya I know.. I wanna read older ones too, but it’s hard to keep track and find time when we are bombarded with new books every week and everyone’s talking about them πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

          3. Ah tell me about it; I’m both really excited for and terrified of next March. I was trying to make a start on my monthly release posts for next year and that month is just terrifyingly long :L I think about a dozen books are coming out on a single day! But then some of them are also the ones that I’m most excited about next year so I’m super happy about it too.

          4. I’ve started on my monthly anticipated releases posts too… and I try not to add too many to the list, just ones I’m very very interested in.. But I agree, March is full of amazing books 😍😍 I already have about 70 books on the new releases list and that’s just for the first half.. don’t know when we’ll ever get to them all 😳😳

          5. I try to include a mixture of books all ones that I’m interested in but some definitely more so than others. It really is! I had to come up with a top ten for it rather than five like most months :L Ooh really? I’m glad it’s not just me that’s buried in 2020 releases already. At least we’ll have plenty of shiny new books to pick from? Hopefully the library will get a few of them in too.

          6. I know right… even having 5 highly anticipated a month is a lot because we have so many backlist books to read as well .. but having 13 new releases just grossly increases the tbr which is always gonna remain never ending πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
            But I agree, there are some amazing books coming out in 2020 and I’m all excited…
            I’m a huge ebook reader so that Macmillan embargo is already messing up the library waitlists but what else can we do πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

          7. I know it’s awful but also wonderful because they all sound so good. Sometimes you just need a time turner, maybe then I could finally catch up πŸ˜‚
            What’s that? Do they not do ebooks now or something?

          8. Ohh time turner would be perfect for all us readers 😍😍😍
            Macmillan and all its subsidiaries now have only a one ebook copy per library system for the first 2-3 months after release … Considering that we have only one digital library system for my whole state, that’s creating an awful long waitlist for some popular new releases … Six month waits seem pretty common in the recent times 😬😬😬

            Liked by 1 person

          9. The library associations and many prominent authors have spoken against the embargo too but Macmillan seems to be sticking to their point that libraries hurt sales, so they’ll only allow 1 ebook for the first 8 weeks 😬😬😬😑😑

          10. That’s so unfair. I’m guessing you can’t even get added to the queue super early as ebooks only get added once they’re out? That’s what it’s like at my library anyway.

          11. Ya… I just have to sit up very early on the release day and add to my hold shelf if I want a reasonable wait time… no other options for now 😬😬

  4. Thanks so much for tagging me!!!! I will definitely do the tag!! And I also really want to read Fireborne, I checked it out on Goodreads and I really love the plot! I also think that The Queen of Nothing could develop to a favorite of mine because I loved the first two books so much and I think that the finale will definetely be a highlight!
