End of Year Book Tag | 2021

Published by


I think book tags are fun to do, and here is one for the end of the year. I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I thought I would do this anyway.

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

Yes. I haven’t started much this year, but I’m finally I think getting out of this funk or slump or whatever this is where I haven’t been reading or posting here. There is one book, I started earlier this year, was enjoying, and for some reason, stopped and went to something else. It was probably a readathon I couldn’t get this book to fit with. The book I need to get back to and finish is A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy.

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

I don’t really associate books with seasons, but a few I hope to carry me into the end of the year are A River of Royal Blood, Kingdom of Ash – because I really need to finish this series, and Poppy War will get me through the rest of this year.

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

Honestly, I’ve been in such a funk, slump, thing, I haven’t been paying attention to new releases. The only releases I made sure to pre-order were the two books which came out this year in the in Death series by J.D. Robb (pen name for Nora Roberts).

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

Since I’ve been in this slump thing, I haven’t touched really any of the books on my self destruct list. So, just about anything from that list.

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

Nothing I can really think of. Possibly Eye of the World by Robert Jordan if I can get to it. This is one of the books on my self-destruct list, and has been recommended to me by two of my co-workers.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2022?

Somewhat. I’ve been considering starting a TBR game. I had so much fun this year with readathons, and those seemed to be what got me reading, so I am hoping playing a game and having a challenge will give me the motivation to read instead of binging YouTube videos for no reason. Honestly, most of the YouTube videos I watch these days are utter trash. There is no reason behind me watching them other than for something to do to procrastinate on what I should be doing like cleaning the house (covered in dog fur), studying for my work exams (I have one more I want to complete before the end of this year), and fixing the door on my husband’s office (still hanging by only one hinge).

If you would like to do this tag, please feel free. I think these are fun, and I want you to have fun too.
