The End of The Year Book Tag | 2017 Edition

The end of the year is creeping up on me and I am not liking it *panics* I am not ready for 2017 to be over… Can it be 2017 for a few more months, please? In 2018 I’m going to graduate (hopefully) and leave all my friends behind and start my master’s degree in a different city and basically, my life’s gonna be thrown upside down and it’s scary!

Anyway, let’s stop panicking and instead talk about my plans for the rest of this year. This tag is originally created by Ariel Bisset on youtube, and I was tagged by the wonderful Theo from Reading & Rambling! Thank you, Theo โค


Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Hahaha *cries* Little Women by Louise May Alcott. I started this in August and I’m still stuck somewhere halfway. I don’t even know what happened, I just stopped reading and never felt like picking it up again.

Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

I don’t even know what an “autumnal book” is even supposed to be. A creepy Halloween book? I don’t read thrillers or horror books…

Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

Yes! I’m still waiting on All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater (my pre-order has shipped, yay!), All The Ways to Here by Emily O’Beirne (I have been promised an e-ARC :D) and Empress of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao!

What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

I just NEED to get to Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (I can’t believe I’ve had it for a month and haven’t read it yet), Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab (same here. Why haven’t I picked it up yet???) and The Long Way to A Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers (I’m afraid Amelie will get angry if I don’t read it :P).

Other books I really want to get to before 2018 is here: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo and Invictus by Ryan Graudin.

Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

Beside Our Dark Duet and The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet as mentioned above, I have high hopes for: What’s A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne and At The Edge of the Universe by Shaun David Hutchinson. I read two of Holly Bourne’s books and absolutely loved them, I adored the two first books in the Spinsters series and I LOVE LOTTIE so I don’t think anything can keep me from loving this book. I also have high hopes for At The Edge of the Universe because I loved We Are The Ants and Shaun David Hutchinson has such amazing stories!

Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

No, first I have to survive 2017 & write my thesis, then I’ll see. I don’t even have planned what I’m going to read tomorrow, how could I plan so many months ahead? I do have some 2018 releases I’m anticipating, so maybe that counts?

A quick list:


What books do you think could become your favourite of this year? Any 2017/2018 releases you’re anticipating?

    1. Haha that was my initial thought too but it’s already October! Only a few more months and it’s 2018.. Thanks!


  1. Ahhh great answers! I really need to read Gemina as well! And I am SO looking forward to All the Crooked Saints.
    Little Women was one of my favorite books growing up. I need to reread it now to see if I still love it as much, but I’m afraid I’ll end up ruining it for myself.

  2. Really loved the Tag and now I want to do it as well ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still anticipating It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne. The book is out in the world, but my preorder will take a few days more to arrive. I’m hoping that the book will be as good as The Spinster Club Series *-*

    1. I hope it’ll get to you soon! I just started What’s A Girl Gotta Do? and I’m loving it so far, so I can’t wait to read more of Holly Bourne’s books! I hope you’ll love it!

  3. Little Fires Everywhere has stuck with me for weeks, so I think it’s safe to say it will be one of my 2017 favorites! Love, Hate, and Other Filters sounds incredibly interested, thanks for letting us know about it!

    Happy Reading,
