Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all luck, health and joy as well as a lot of awesome books! So here is a quick tag that I’ve seen around on wordpress and booktube, it was created by Charr Frears on youtube feel free to check out his channel!
I hope you enjoy it!
1 An author you’d like to read (that you’ve never read before)
So I have three that I always wanted to read but never actually got around to:
Yes, yes I know I am the last person on earth to read their books… But I heard a lot of mixed reviews on Brandon Sanderson and to be honest his books are big… As for Patrick Rothfuss I don’t want to be frustrated if I finish the first two books before the third one comes out. And for Brandon Mull I don’t know where to start so if you have one of his books you really liked feel free to recommend it to me ^^
2 A book you’d like to read
Only one? xD Well recently it has been Dragon Champion by E.E.Knight because it is about dragons (see how obsessed I am?)
3 A classic you’d like to read
Emma by Jane Austen, it is the only Austen book I never read but I watched the BBC adaptation and it was so damn good that I know I am going to love it!
4 A book you’d like to re-read.
So many…. Well I am actually re reading the Harry Potter books. BUT I will not read books 5,6,7 and 8 and I will do a full discussion/review on Harry Potter on this blog.
5 A book you’ve had for ages and want to read.
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. It is always the same for me… The more I hear about how good a book is, the harder it is to pick it up….
6 A big book you’d like to read.
Dune by Frank Herbert
7 An author you’ve previously read and want to read more of.
Mark Lawrence and Michael J. Sullivan they are authors I absolutely love!
8 A book you got for Christmas and would like to read.
Well it’s more a re read, Northern Lights by Philipp Pulman, I am waiting for the new one to come out in paperback.
9 A series you want to read (start and finish)
Well the ones I mentioned previously… I guess if I can finish the Dragon Champion series I will be happy.
10 A series you want to finish (that you’ve already started)
Ho my… so many series I started in 2017…. Well first there is the Riyria Revelations, then The chronicle of Prydain, I also have to catch up on A song of ice and Fire and finally the Immortal series by Tamora Pierce.
11 Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2017?
I do set a goal on my goodreads challenge and this year I set it much lower than before because I know I will read more than that but I don’t want to feel pressured. I will try to read at least 80 books.
12 Any other reading goals?
I have a personal goal of getting rid of my TBR pile so I chose 18 books from that pile and I will have to read them through the course of this year.
So that is it for the tag if you liked it please feel free to do it ^^
