The End of Year Book Tag 2018

the end of the year book tag 2018

We are kind of late in doing this one but we thought the tag looked fun and it’s still 2018, so what the hell! I honestly have NO idea who started this one.  Everyone seems to tag someone else, but I can’t follow it back to the original person.  If anyone knows who started this tag, please let us know!


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

Melanie: Yes, Winter by Marissa Meyer.  I really need to get it read.  I’m loving it – just other stuff keeps getting in the way.

Mireille: Yup! I have 4 going right now that I started a while ago. So, I have The Girl that Drank the Moon that I started in May, Gunslinger Girl from July, The Traitor Baru Cormorant from August and A Touch of Gold from November. I’m liking all of these just got sidetracked with other reads that I needed to get finish for the group. I will get these read soon. I’m hoping to get most of these done by February.

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

Melanie: Not really.  Probably more high fantasy and thrillers.   I don’t have any specific books though.

Mireille: In autumn I usually start to transition towards more heavy fantasy books. I don’t know why Fall and Winter seem to be a better setting for them.

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

Melanie: Not in 2018.  I don’t even want to think about 2019 – my wallet screams in terror when I do.

Mireille: In 2018? Not really, there wasn’t really anything in December I was looking forward to. Now January that’s another story, that month will break my bank account.

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

Melanie: Well, it’s basically the end of the month so that is not happening LOL.  I would like to finish up Sadie by Courtney Summers and Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo though.

Mireille: So as the end of the year is imminent, I think I will be focusing on Graphic Novels more so  I plan to read Ms. Marvel #3, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1 and Runaway #1.

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

Melanie: Not my favorite, but Sadie has the potential of being a favorite – I’m sure.  At this point though, not sure if it will make my top ten list because we’ll be putting that up very soon.

Mireille: not really. I read some really amazing books in 2018.

6.Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?

Melanie: Oh yes, but I really need to sit down and look at things a little more.  This past month was a little nuts.

Mireille: Yes, already have my goals and challenges planned and my first 3 reads of 2019. I think it’s going to be a great year.

5 books longer

We aren’t going to tag anyone in this one because the year is so close to over but if you want to do this one, please consider yourself tagged!
