The Greek Gods Book Tag

Chris at Biblio Nerd Reflections tagged me a few days ago in the Greek Gods Book Tag. Now, it’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag and it looks fun, so of course I decided to do it.

The rules for the Greek Gods Book Tag are:

  • Pingback to Zuky here so she can read all your posts!
  • You can use her graphics if you like, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
  • Tag as many people as you want, but please share the love.

Naughty Or Nice Book Tag

I thought I did this Naughty or Nice Book Tag last year, but apparently I didn’t. Thanks to Chris for bringing it to my attention. The Naughty or Nice Book Tag was created by Jen of Jenniely, and the goal is to answer the bookish questions to find out if you will be on Santa’s naughty or nice list this year. I didn’t tag anyone, but feel free to join in the Naughty or Nice Book Tag.

2023 End of the Year Book Tag

Hello, December, my old friend. This is a busy time of the year no matter how you look at it. For blogging, this means electively taking time to do recaps and set up new goals. One type of recap is the 2023 End of the Year Book Tag. I first did this book tag last year, so it will be fun to see how my answers changed from 2022. It’s a short and sweet tag, which always appeals more to me than a longer tag. So, let’s go!

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

Making It So by Patrick StewartTwo Twisted Crowns by Rachel Gillig

“Need” is a self-imposed construct in the bookish world, of course. But I’ll play along. I need to finish MAKING IT SO by Patrick Stewart because it’s a library book with a holds list. By the time this post goes live, though, hopefully I’ll have finished it. I would like to finish TWO TWISTED CROWNS by Rachel Gillig, which I think is very doable. I’m partially through A TOUCH OF DARKNESS by Scarlett St. Clair, but that’s not a “need to finish” book.

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

Like I said last year, I don’t really read seasonally. Right now I’m trying to get through some backlogged ARCs.

Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

Not particularly. This time of year seems to be relatively quiet with respect to new releases. August and October seem to be the big pushes for new releases before the holidays. Everything I’m currently looking forward to are releases for 2024.

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

The Words of Kings and Prophets by Shauna LawlessHouse of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas

My December TBR talks about all of the books I want to try to read before the end of the year. To recap, though, a couple of the books I hope to get to include are THE WORDS OF KINGS AND PROPHETS by Shauna Lawless and HOUSE OF SKY AND BREATH by Sarah J. Maas.

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

Him by Geoff Ryan

I’m not sure. HIM by Geoff Ryman has some potential. But I don’t know if I’ll have time to get to it this month. It’s more of a hopeful than priority read on my mental December TBR list.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2024?

The Tusks of Extinction by Ray NaylerThat Time I Got Drunk and Saved a Demon by Kimberly LemmingThat Time I Got Drunk and Yeeted A Love Potion At A Werewolf by Kimberly LemmingImmortal Pleasures by V. CastroHouse of Flame and Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Of course! I’m a book blogger who appreciates ARCs, so I definitely have some lined up already. They include THE TUSKS OF EXTINCTION by Ray Nayler, a couple of books by Kimberly Lemming, and IMMORTAL PLEASURES by V. Castro. I have a bunch of preorders, too. I also plan to try to finish up a bunch of series I started. Most importantly, though, I’m looking forward to HOUSE OF FLAME AND SHADOW by Sarah J. Maas!

And that’s a wrap on this 2023 End of the Year Book Tag! If this looks fun to you, then feel free to tag yourself!

Thanksgiving Book Tag 2023

I had so much fun filling out the A-Z Book Tag that I decided to look for one for Thanksgiving. Apparently I did this Thanksgiving Book Tag last year. So I’ll do it again, a Thanksgiving Book Tag 2023 version! Let’s see if I can complete this without repeating too many answers from 2022.

Originally created by Anna’s Book Nook, here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Give credit to the author (Anna’s Book Nook)
  • Answer the prompts
  • Tag others if you desire!

A-Z Book Tag

Chris at Biblio Nerd Reflections tagged me to do this way back in April. Like him, I also found this A-Z Book Tag a bit daunting, so it sat in my drafts for a while. But I have the day off and I’m resting my brain after finishing HOUSE OF EARTH AND BLOOD, so I figured today is the day to do it.

This tag was originally created by Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner and it was actually called the A-Z Survey.
