End of Year Book Tag | 2020

I feel like doing a book tag, so here’s one.

The End of Year Book Tag was created by booktuber Ariel Bissett. I did it before back in 2017 and thought to do it again because the questions are great for this time of year.

(Btw, if you’re looking for tags to do. I created a list of all the ones I’ve done here and even categorized them here because I obviously have nothing better to do these days, lol. 🤪)

ARE THERE ANY BOOKS YOU STARTED THIS YEAR THAT YOU NEED TO FINISH?

I know, it’s a lot. I started these 7 books and have yet to complete them. I’m dragging my feet on a few and it seems that I’ve totally lost interest in some, unfortunately. The only one I know for sure I’ll complete is Tikka Chance on Me. It’s a romance novella.

DO YOU HAVE AN AUTUMNAL BOOK TO TRANSITION INTO THE END OF THE YEAR?

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I think I did so with Mexican Gothic, which I read at the right time back in October when the leaves started to change and a bit of chill began to flow on the wind. I enjoyed the story. It’s a historical fiction, horror novel with lots of gothic influences set in Mexico about a young woman trying to find out what ails her cousin and the mystery surrounding her cousin’s husband’s family.

IS THERE A NEW RELEASE YOU’RE STILL WAITING FOR?

The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry by C.M. Waggoner
Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi

Well, Waggoner’s book won’t be out until January, but I’m anticipating it nevertheless. I enjoyed her first novel Unnatural Magic, which is about a young woman who leaves her restrictive country for a new place where she can learn magic and gets caught up in a murder investigation involving trolls while there.

I’d also like to get a copy of Transcendent Kingdom, but I hate hardbacks, so I’m holding out for the paperback.

WHAT ARE THREE BOOKS YOU WANT TO READ BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR?

    1. Thanks! I hope so too.
      I listened to a podcast once – I think it was BBC World book club – featuring Pullman where they discussed whether or not the Golden Compass should be considered a kids’ book. I forgot what Pullman’s opinion was on it.
