One more book post/video than planned, heheh.
Hello, and welcome to Vlogmas day 21. I was not planning on doing another book video, because I have one more for the end of Vlogmas. But Kathy posted a video today, and tagged me in it, so yeah, sure, why not? And I wasn’t really feeling like doing today’s planned topic, so I’m doing this instead. Also, I thought it might be a good idea to do this video before the end of the year! Let’s get into it.
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish? Apart from the readathon–I don’t know if I will succeed. I have two and half books left, and with only…three days? left. Anyway! I do have Mudbound from the library. I need to finish it before we fly out to Alaska, because this will be due while we’re gone. And we will be back on New Year’s so… Yeah, that one book, but it’s not like need to finish. Other than that, I have a stack of books, but none of them are ones I need to finish before the year ends.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year? I don’t really re-read. I do like re-reading some books, like Harry Potter duh, but generally, I don’t. I do have plans to re-read some books purely because I just got the third book in a series. It’s been a long time since I read the first and second books, so I’m re-reading those, refreshing my memory, and then I’ll read the third book that I just got. I don’t really feel the need to read specific books or specific kinds of books at specific times of the year. Just give me all the books.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for? Maybe, but I don’t remember. I don’t think so?
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year? Readathon aside, Mudbound obviously and… I want to read the next books in the Lunar Chronicles series. The first book is Cinder, I’m reading that for the readathon. I loved it, and one of my friends texted me, “Oh!! You read it!?” Yeah? “You want to borrow the second and third from me?” Sure! So I have the second and third book now. That’s my three books to read before the end of the year. Really, it’s not like I need/want to finish by… If I don’t, that’s okay. I don’t feel like I have to finish this list of books by the end of the year. If I don’t, I failed my goal. I don’t do that. I just read when the mood strikes me.
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year? Maybe Mudbound, I have no idea. I don’t really know the details so… Maybe that. But… Honestly, Cinder is kind of already a favorite, so the next books probably will be favorites too. And… Picking a top favorite? I can’t do that. I can’t do that to my precious babies.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2018? No. I have a stack of books that I want to try and read first before I jump around to other books. But not really, other than readathons that might pop up, or… I was thinking, maybe I will do something I saw Kathy share from Book Riot. It’s their Read Harder challenge for 2018, it’s basically a list of different types of books to try to read. A few examples: a book about nature, a comic written or illustrated by a person of color, a children’s classic published before 1980, an Oprah Book Club selection, an one-sitting book, a sci-fi novel with a female protagonist written by a female author. You get the idea. So that is something I may try to do, I don’t know yet. We’ll see.
I can’t think of anybody to tag right now, so if you want to do this, consider yourself tagged. That’s it, I’m so close to being finished with Vlogmas! Just a few more days, yes! Okay, I’m going to edit this now, and read a book while I wait for it to upload, and all of that stuff. Bye!
