End of Year Book Tag

I did this tag at the end of last year and I felt like this is a fun tag that I’m going to do around this time every year!

I did start Jade City by Fonda Lee but never finished it but I definitely want to!

I don’t really have seasonal books that I read every year, but since we are going into Summer here in Australia one book I think will give me summery vibes is Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid

No all my anticipated releases have come out already but one I haven’t picked up yet is House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J Maas

Near the Bone by Christina Henry and His & Hers by Alice Feeney and All of Our Demise by Amanda Foody & Christine Lynn Herman

I just have a feeling I’m going to love this!

No… I did struggle with reading slumps throughout this year so my only plan for 2023 is to fall back in love with reading again!

Tome Topple Round 16 TBR

There is another round of Tome Topple that starts today! I love this readathon because it gives me that push to pick up those longer books that I have been putting off! For this round Thoughts on Tomes from Booktube has chosen 20 prompts that we can pick from and I have decided to do a random number generator to pick 5 numbers that will correspond to a prompt. I am going to aim to complete at least two of these books but even if I only get to one I’m going to count it as a success!

2. A Sequel Tome – Gods and Monsters by Shelby Mahurin

12. Tome set in a non-European inspired setting – House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J Maas

9. Tome based on a historical event – The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

11. Standalone tome – House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

13. Tome centering a romance – Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare

Contradictions Book Tag

Once again Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books is making me aware of some fun books tags that I have to give a go! This was originated by ย Daniela at Only If For a Page on BookTube.

Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong – Fantasy is my favourite genre but this book just didn’t do it for me

The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward – I’m just getting in to horror books and this one was great!

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell – the Chosen One trope is one of my favourites but this book wasn’t good for me

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – the Damsel in Distress tropes is one of my least favourites but this iteration did it for me!

Leigh Bardugo has been a consistent favourite but Ninth House was a let down

I didn’t like Middlegame but I loved Where The Drowned Girls Go by Seanan McGuire

Velvet was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody – there is so much more that could of been done with this cover
