End of the Year Tag

I was tagged by Avery @redrocketpanda (thank you!)

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



I usually don’t leave books unfinished unless I’m DNFing them. The only exception this year was The Fifth Season, but I got only a few chapters into it (at the wrong moment). While I really do want to read it, I’m not sure I’m going to do that before the end of the year.

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

When the Moon Was Ours is probably the most autumnal book I’ve ever read, and I loved rereading it this autumn, but I don’t have a book that I reread every year during this season.

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


The only 2018 book on my TBR that hasn’t been released yet is All that Wandering Light by Heather Fawcett. I want to read it, but it’s not a priority because I’m bad at sequels.

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


Mirage by Somaya Daoud, Moonshine by Jasmine Gower, Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton are some.

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


A favorite, yes, and I think it will happen (Blanca & Roja could). The favorite, no. I’m not going to spoil my end of the year list now, but if you follow this blog you know which is the favorite and honestly, that’s not going to happen

Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?


Between the end of December and the beginning of January I want to reread both The Grisha and Six of Crows in preparation for King of Scars. Then around February-March I will also reread the whole Machineries of Empire series, because I really want to.

    1. I’d love to see your answers! (I know, I forgot to tag people yesterday, but if no one has tagged you yet, consider yourself tagged!)
      And I hope I’m able to get to Mirage soon, it sounds like my kind of sci-fi.

  1. I’m also really bad at sequels, but I’m so excited for All that Wandering Light. The first book had an ending I actually found interesting, so hopefully I’ll actually pick up the sequel once it comes out. I’d also love to get to Strange Grace soon! A Conspiracy of Truths sounds interesting, so I’d love to hear your thoughts on that one.

    1. I’m really anticipating it too, but I’d have to reread Even the Darkest Stars first and I know it’s probably not going to happen in December.
      And I hope Strange Grace is as good as I’ve heard it is! I need more good polyamory stories.


  2. A conspiracy of Truths sounds fascinating, and I just added it to my tbr, I can’t remember the last time I read a book with an elderly narrator and that alone is enough to pique my interest. I recently got Ninefox Gambit and I can’t wait to dive into it, I’m in a sci-fi mood lately so I’m sure I’ll do it soon. I’m excited to read Strange Grace, especially now that I’ve read some more lukewarm reviews that have lowered my expectations — I never like going into a book riding a hype wave for some reason.

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with an old man as the main character/narrator either. I’ve read some negative/three star reviews of Strange Grace too lately, but I liked everything I’ve read by Tessa Grafton so far and I like creepy forests books, so I think it’s going to work for me.
      And I hope you like the weird murder magic math in space book! (I don’t know if you already know but I prefer to warn people: there’s sexual assault and suicidal ideation in it).
