Hi everyone! You’re probably all very bored by me saying that I’ve been trying to get back in touch with the book community after I kind of abandoned it because of mental health reasons, but that’s one of the reasons why I’m doing this tag so you’re hearing about it again. Sorry. (The other reason is because my friend Romie informed me that my end of year book tag of 2019 was the first one that showed up when you search for it on Google so, uh, thank you? But also, why?)
Anyway, after seeing a few bookstubers doing this tag I thought it might be fun for me to do a 2020 edition of this tag too. Which might be a little bit late because we only have one month left, but hey, apparently people do this anywhere from September to maybe the last week of December so it’s fine. We’re fine.
Also, this tag was first created by Ariel Bisset over on Youtube! Here’s her 2020 edition of the tag, which I really enjoyed watching. Now, let me get to the questions.
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
I made a whole blogpost on that a bit ago and since then I have a few more books to add to that list; That Kind of Guy by Talia Hibbert, Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers, The Land of the Cranes by Aida Salazar, Fly on the Wall by Remy Lai and The Tea Master and the Detective by Aliette de Bodard.
But as much as I’d like to finish all the books I’m currently reading and start 2021 with a clean reading slate, I don’t think that’s going to happen. And I’m going to try to not stress out about it too much. At this point it’s more important to me that I’m actually reading (because I’ve been sucking at doing so lately) and if that means I’ll start more new books than I’ll finish then I’m going to try to be fine with that.
I’m also aware that Fadwa gave me a TBR of books to read this year but… with the way this year has gone and with how little I’ve read overall I won’t be able to get to these. And I feel really bad about this, but I’m definitely still planning on getting to them someday. Lees verder
