New Year Book Tag

Let’s kick 2019 off with a fun tag. I saw this over on Drew’s blog and thought I’d give it a go. The original was posted on the booktube channel Bookables. If you fancy doing it too, consider yourself tagged!

How many books are you planning to read in 2019?

Well…last year I set my Goodreads target at 12 because I didn’t want to pressure myself & ended up reading 160 books… So this year I’ve gone for 150 but I already feel like I’m falling behind! I’m going to try and forget about it and just read like I normally would and see what happens. I’d like to hit 200 one year but that feels a way off yet.

Name five books you didn’t get to read last year but want to make a priority in 2019?

1. Bloody Rose – Nicholas Eames
2. Fire & Blood – GRR Martin
3. In the Region of the Summer Stars – Stephen Lawhead
4. Child of a Mad God – RA Salvatore
5. Tombland – CJ Sansom

Name a genre you want to read more of?

Not really a genre, but I’d like to read more non-fiction this year. Fiction-wise I’m happy sticking to fantasy and its various sub-genres

Three non-book related goals for 2019

1. settle into my new job
2. plan our wedding
3. travel more in the UK

What’s a book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?

A Natural History of Dragons – Marie Brennan

One word that you’re hoping 2019 will be?

Productive
(not a very exciting word, granted, but I have lots I want to get done this year so here’s hoping I manage it 😀 )

Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag

 

best book you’ve read so far in 2017

Without a doubt, Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier. This is the second book in the Sevenwaters series and I loved everything about it. It was atmospheric, tragic, magical and both upsetting and up-lifting. It is just wonderful.  Continue reading “Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag”

To Be Read Book Tag

The lovely Pippa over at thelittlebookowl posted this tag the other day and I enjoyed her answers so much that I thought I’d share mine as well.

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Most of the books I want to read are listed in my Goodreads To Read shelf but I tend to only Continue reading “To Be Read Book Tag”

Pellinor Book Tag

Today I am doing the lovely Pippa’s Pellinor Book Tag. She loves the four book fantasy series by Alison Croggon and created this tag to show her appreciation for it and encourage others to pick them up. You can find her original post here over at her blog thelittlebookowl. I really enjoyed thinking about these questions so thanks for the tag! You don’t need to have read any of the books to participate so please give it a go if you fancy it! Continue reading “Pellinor Book Tag”

The Classics Book Tag

 

I came across this book tag here, and thought I’d give it a go!

  1. A hyped classic that you really didn’t enjoy:

I didn’t enjoy The Great Gatsby, I felt the narrator was just too dull. I know that was the point, to juxtapose the riches and adventure of the other characters but he was just too dry for me. I also really, really didn’t like Frankenstein.
