Mandy and I completed this tag on November 19 so our answers may have changed by the time this post is published. if you know the original creator of this tag, let us know in the comments.
are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
MANDY: Into the Drowning Deep. I was so excited for this one…only to realize that it’s 17+ hours long as an audiobook! I’m actually making really decent time with it, but as of this moment, I still have 8+ hours to go. Please help.
SHA: Gentlement’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. I read thirty pages and then realized I wasn’t in the mood for it.
do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
MANDY: His Hideous Heart edited by Dahlia Adler. It still brings the Halloween and fall feels, only to bring on the cold, which I’m currently living in.
SHA: No, I don’t usually let the seasons dictate what I read.
is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
MANDY: No! Oddly enough, every year, all of my books are out by, like, October. I rarely have any books that I’m eagerly waiting for – or even just really waiting for – in November and December.
SHA: Um, not really? There are a few new releases I have my hands on that I haven’t gotten to read yet though. Which I more an answer to the next question.
what are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
MANDY: The Raven’s Tale, Goddess in the Machine, and Stargazing.
SHA: The Beautiful, Fountains of Silence, and Thirteen Doorways.
is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
MANDY: Ummmmm. Tbh, not really? There have been some pretty high highs, and looking at the books I have on the lineup, I’m a little doubtful that they could usurp the greats I got this year.
SHA: Fountains of Silence has a good shot. I didn’t have any major highs this year. Not that nothing was good! I just know in three years time, maybe only two books I read this year will still be favourites. I didn’t read too many overwhelming, OMG books this year.
have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
MANDY: More readathons and totally finally finishing up all the physical books on my TBR.
SHA: Nope. I’ve decided to fully commit to mood reading.
