BLOGMAS| The End of the Year Book Tag

It's the last month if the year. It's December. Where did September, October, and November go? I swear I just blinked, and they were gone. 

Today I am going to be doing the The End of the Year Book Tag. Originally created by Ariel Bissett, I've seen this come back around this year and thought it would be a great way to begin mentally organizing the final month of the year.

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

Ravencry (Raven's Mark #2)
Ed McDonald


I briefly mentioned this in my TBR, but I didn't have time to finish reading this one before coming back to University, nor could I take it with me due to the amount I had to carry with me across the country.

Words of Radiance (Stormlight Archive #2)
Brandon Sanderson

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

I changed the question slightly to include "wintery" due to the nature of when this tag is going up.

A Natural History of Dragons (The Memoirs of Lady Trent #1)
Marie Brennan


For me, I always crave picking up either a larger epic fantasy novel or a book that features dragons, or both. 

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

Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices #3)
Cassandra Clare


I thought I had all of my most anticipated books of 2018, and then was abruptly made to remember that the final book in the The Dark Artifices trilogy will be out this month. I don't have time to read a Cassandra Clare book! 

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

Shadowplay (Micah Gray #2)
Laura Lam


I'm at the point that the only thing stopping me from picking this up is time. I'm taking a week out of Uni work for Christmas and reading an these books will be read during then.
Twelve Kings (The Song of the Shattered Sands #1)
Bradley Beaulieu

These books have been featured on TBRs all throughout the year. But, I am still determined to read them before the end of the year.

Neverwhere (London Below, The World of Neverwhere #1)
Neil Gaiman


Neil Gaiman just screams wintery read, and I'm dying to reread this in its illustrated form.

5. Is there still a book that could shock you and become your new favourite?

Never say never, but I think my favourite book of the year is set in stone at this point. 

6. Have you already made reading plans for 2019?

A few. But, nothing to reveal until the new year.

I won't tag anyone, but if you want to do this tag - please do!
