End of the Year Book Tag: 2022 Edition

We're almost to the end of 2023 which means it's time for my annual End of the Year Book Tag! I've been doing this tag every year for the last few years and it's always quite fun to do and then look back at in the new year. 

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

This year I adopted a mentality of not finishing books if I wasn't feeling them. This wasn't DNF-ing as the majority I still plan to finish but I was basically giving books trial runs to see if I was in the right mood. There's definitely a handful that could work for this, but none that I plan on finishing before the end of the year. However, some honorable mentions for ones I hope to finish in 2023 are Queen of Volts by Amanda Foody and Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard.

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

I'd like to read A Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna to end out autumn and then read A Merry Little Meet Cute by Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone to enter into the winter/Christmas season.  I just feel like I've heard they're both cute and wholesome and that's pretty much what I need for the stress that is life right now. 

3. Is there a new release you're still waiting for?

There's a couple but one that really pops out is A Million to One by Adiba Jaigirdar. This is a sapphic heist story set on the Titanic and everything about that just sounds amazing to me. Plus, I loved the other book I read by Adiba so I have high hopes for this one. Plus, the cover is absolutely stunning! 

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

Apart from the two I mentioned earlier, I want to read The Song of the Marked by S.M. Gaither, The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy by Megan Bannen, and A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross. I don't know if I'll get to all of them but they're all on my current TBR list for the rest of the year. 

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

Maybe The Song of the Marked or The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy. I also think any book has the potential to shock me but I don't know if any will top my current favorite of the year (City of Gods and Monsters). 

6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2023? 

Definitely. I'm 100% an overplanner and I have tentative TBRs through the end of the summer centered around book releases that are coming out. I also have a list of backlist series that I'd love to get through in 2023. Overall, I'm just also hoping that 2023 is a lot better of a reading year for me than the last two have been. 

Thanks for reading!
