End of the Year Book Tag!

Hello, hello! I know it’s not quite the end of the year yet, but it’s definitely time to start sorting out what we need to read before it finishes, as well as what were excited for next year… so this tag is absolutely perfect! I was tagged by the lovely Jordyn over at Birdies Book Nook. Jordyn is a fantastic blogger and an amazing bookish friend so you should definitely go and give her blog some love.

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

I’m going to have to copy Jordyn’s answer here because I never don’t finish a book, unless I know I’m not going to pick it up again. And, even when I DNF, I do it rarely because I always want to give the books enough tof a try before I decide it’s not for me.

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

I’m not sure how ‘autumnal’ this is going to be, but it’s certainly the only book I’m planning to read before the end of the year that gives off any of those vibes. I adored A River Enchanted, and can’t wait to dive into it’s sequel.

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

I have been eager to get my hands on this book ever since it was announced! As a sucker for anything that features mythology/folklore, this is right up my street & after reading some rave reviews, I can see it becoming a favourite of mine.

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

These three are all January 2023 releases, but I know I am going to have no control over reading them next month! I am hoping to get a few backlist titles read as well, but my self control normally goes out of the window in December, so my mood will probably decide what I pick up.

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

Hmm, maybe one of the above? I’m really not sure & I think it would take a lot of creep over the wonder that was Bloodmarked by Tracy Deonn, or the outstanding Babel by R.F. Kuang! That being said, I am terrible at picking a favourite book, so my list will more likely be favourite books…

Have you already started making reading plans for 2023?

Have I??? Does having over over 100 books already on your Goodreads 2023 to read shelf count? No, you want more? Ok, how about the ‘50 Fantasy reads of the first half of 2023‘ post that went out this week! I actually already have a few 2024 releases on my radar, so I would say I am more that prepared for all the amazing books due out next year.

  1. Thanks for the tag, lovely! I’ve been seeing so many people do this one and in my head, I’m like “no way, it can’t already be time for the end-of-year book tag! no way!” but alas, here we are! 😂 The Last Tale of the Flower Bride looks amazing and I’m really looking forward to it, same goes for Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries! I hope you enjoy them! The struggle to choose a top 3/5/10 is going to be so real this year, lol… I hope your year of reading wraps up with amazing books, Becky!

    • Thanks Dini! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by & it’s definitely going to be a nightmare trying to narrow down my top reads 😅. I hope you have a great end to 2022 as well 😊


  2. I loved “The Witch and the Tsar”! I see you’re aiming to start your 2023 TBR next month! The books you listed I received (e)ARCs, too. When will I start reading them? Who knows?!

  4. That fantasy challenge sounds soo good! I am struggling to finish up my one PopSugar Challenge this year. All the rest kind of failed but I think I’ll be too busy next year. I might hang back and not put much stress on myself. haha. The Last Tale of the Flower Bride looks good.. checking it out on GR now! Thanks for the tag! ❤
