NEW YEAR, NEW BOOKS TAG

Hey guys, today I am coming at you guys with a short little book tag to help get myself back into blogging for the year. I am currently in a but if a blogging slump so this is only a small tag, so excuse me if this isn’t incredibly detailed.

My Goodreads Reading Goal is 52 books. So far this year  (21/01/18) I have read 10 books and 1 comic! I am super proud of my progress so far.

You can keep up with my progress here!

 

4. NEW AUTHOR/ GENRE I WANT TO READ IN 2018

SLEEPING BEAUTIES

Sleeping Beauties

 

This year I would really like to give Stephen King a shot, as I’ve never had the guts to read one of his books!

 

 

5. A READING HABIT I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE

Oh, boy, I could go on for days!

I have a lot of reading habit issues. Mostly, I would just like to keep reading. This year, I am starting Uni so I really don’t know how my habits will change, though, I feel like I will get a lot less physical reading done. So, this year I would like to actually read some of the books with my eyeballs, instead of relying on audiobooks for all of my reading.

6.  MY MOST ANTICIPATED 2018 RELEASE

My most anticipated release of 2018 would have to be Escaping From Houdini. I am officially obsessed with this series. ALSO, look at this cover I am screeching! This book is going to be so much fun and I am completely hooked on this series!

  1. Scythe is on my tbr! The premise of it sounds amazing, and I know a lot of people love it, so I’m hoping to read it soon. My reading goal is 52 as well! I always set it at 52, I figure 1 book a week is a good amount.

    I’ve personally found that you have more free time when you’re at uni than you do when you’re still at school. When you’re at school, you tend to have a pretty set routine and your work is very evenly spaced throughout the year. At uni, you don’t really get much of a set routine (depending on your course I suppose) and you seem to have some periods where you’re just really busy with no free time, and then others when you have loadssss of free time. I’ve never had a problem fitting in reading around university work so hopefully you’ll be fine too 🙂

    1. Scythe is a really good book, I definitely recommend it! I had the same idea, I figure, no matter how hectic this ear is or whatever I end up doing, 1 book a week shouldn’t be too hard for me.

      Thank you, this makes me feel soo much better (I literally just let out a sigh of relief, apparently I was really stressed about my reading??). I will have longer train trips to get to Uni, but it feels great knowing that my only reading time this year won’t just be on a train. ❤️ ❤️

  2. Can’t wait for Escaping From Houdini, too. I’m reading Stalking Jack the Ripper right now and I’m about to scream with how much I love it and how much I want to finish it. 🙂

    1. I’m literally about to preorder Escaping From Houdini, that’s how excited I am for it! It’s such a fantastic series and I LOVE THE CHARACTER SO MUCH GOD HELP ME. I’m so glad you’re enjoying SJTR, it’s honestly one of my favourite books (though I think I liked book 2 slightly more) so I hope you love it. Do you know who The Ripper is yet or have you already finished it? Did you guess?

      1. Ooooh you should!!! I’m planning on ordering a new release each month and so far so good. 🙂

        I do know who the Ripper is and I was pretty shocked because I suspected him but never thought it would be him. I have about 25 pages to go, but I’m waiting until February to finish it (if I can wait that long!) haha

          1. I think I’m going to after we finish Batman even though I’m not sure if I added it to my TBR. I’m trying to kill it this month because of Feminist Lit Feb and the Contemporary-A-Thon. 🙂
