Was I tagged to do this tag? No, but I rarely am, and I do tags anyway because I am a free spirit. I see this tag go around every year, but I’ve never tried my own hand at this. This year, after seeing lots of BookTubers and book bloggers do this tag, I decided this is the year I finally give it a shot. As I said, I’ve seen many people do this tag, but the most recent is Evelyn Reads.
Anyway, here’s a loose outline of my reading plans for the rest of 2020!
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots
I decided to put this book on pause last night but do still intend on finishing it. It’s pretty good so far, it just isn’t grabbing me at the moment. Right now, I plan on finishing it by the end of the year, but who knows if I’ll actually do it.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth
This book is a perfect autumnal read because it takes place at a secluded boarding school over fall winter. It’s a slow-build Gothic horror, filled to the brim with sapphic ladies.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir
I’ve been waiting for this book for 2+ years. It’s the last book in the An Ember in the Ashes series and I am so excited to see how the story ends. Tahir has surprised me at every turn with this series and A Reaper at the Gates was her best book yet. I can’t wait to see how she tops it!
What are three books you want to read by the end of the year?
I actually just made a Top 5 Tuesday post about this a couple weeks ago. Check it out here!
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?
The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart
Okay, so I doubt that any book is going to dethrone the N.K. Jemisin books I’ve read this year. But if any could, maybe it’s this dark high fantasy with a lesbian MC. Even if it doesn’t become my most favorite of the year, I still anticipate enjoying the hell out of it.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2021?
Yes, I plan on taking part in F/F February. Basically, you read only books centering F/F romances throughout the whole month. Two of the books I plan on reading are written by Black women, so I’ll also be reading Black books for Black History Month.
