Is it still acceptable to be posting about new years resolutions?
I saw this tag over on kristinkravesbooks and new that this may help me know what books I really want to get to this year.
If you want to do this tag then please leave your link in the comments so that I can check it out!
An author you’d like to read that you’ve never read:
Will Carver has really caught my attention these last few weeks, I’m hoping to get started on Nothing Important Happened Today, I’ve also heard really good reviews for Good Samaritans.
A book you’d like to read:
The House of Leaves seems so unique! I’ve heard that reading this is pretty challenging with some pages where you have to solve puzzles to be able to continue reading. I received this today in the post and it is a real chunker of a book, hopefully I will finish this by the end of the year.
A classic you’d like to read:
Being completely honest I’m not a huge fan of classics, I always have good intentions to read lots of classics, however I would honestly just be reading it because it’s a classic rather than I actually want to read the story. The Picture of Dorian Gray is the exception as the story itself is pretty fascinating.
A book you’d like to re-read:
This is a non-fiction book so it may seem like an odd pick for a re-read however, I read this back when I was in sixth form (8 years ago ish) and Jon Ronson is my absolute favourite non-fiction author, let’s be honest we all know that I love me some criminal psychology.
A book you’ve had for ages and want to read:
I’ve been wanting to make my way through the Hannibal Lector series, I really loved the films so fingers crossed this is even better!
A big book you’d like to read:
The Stand by Stephen King is a hefty boy as this edition of the book is 1348 pages!
All I know about this book is that it is post-apocalyptic and that it is definitely worth a read.
An author you’ve previously read and would like to read more of:
I now have a little collection of Margaret Atwood books with this one being my newest addition, I’ve heard some very mixed and disappointing reviews for this, so hopefully if I go into this with low expectations then fingers crossed I will be able to enjoy it.
A book you got for Christmas and would like to read:
I seriously need to read this book, but on the other hand I’m really scared to see how this is all going to end. These covers are absolutely stunning and I managed the get the Waterstones edition with the black sprayed edges. I really need more time to read all the books that I want to read right now.
A series you want to read from start to finish:
I’ve finally got my hands on two of the books in this trilogy so I really really hope I can get to the first book ASAP. I’ve been seeing this series everywhere and I can’t wait to be introduced into this world.
A series you want to finish that you’ve already started:
I finished Scythe a few months ago and I received the box set of the trilogy for Christmas so I’m super excited to be able to get to continue and finish the series this year.
Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2020?
I’ve set one main goal, cut down the amount of blog tours that I sign up to as this month and next month I have piled them up too much and I’m finding that all the books I’ve bought over Christmas I just don’t have time to read and it’s been getting me down. I was actually in a reading slump throughout the whole of December due to this.
Do you have any bookish resolutions? I’d love to see your answers to this tag.
See you in the next one…
