Haven’t done a book tag in a while and when I saw this one over at Zezee with Books it looked like so much fun I thought I’d fill it out! Not sure who originally created this one but to whoever did, thanks!
An author you’d like to read that you’ve never read:
Elizabeth Bear! For some reason I haven’t read any of her books even though I have a few in my TBR. I’d probably start off with Range of Ghosts but I also have a copy of Karen Memory and they both seem like good choices.
A book you’d like to read:
Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri–a lot of my friends have loved this one and my tastes generally line up with theirs so I think this book will be one I wind up loving.
A classic you’d like to read:
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I’ve only read The Martian Chronicles by Bradbury, waaaaay back in high school, but I really loved those stories. I don’t read a ton of science fiction and I’d like to read more, a classic seems like a good place to start.
A book you’d like to reread:
Dune by Frank Herbert! I’ll actually be rereading this one soon for one of my book clubs and I’m really excited for it because it’s been twenty years.
A book you’ve had for ages and want to read:
I’ve had The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge in my TBR for so many years, probably nine or ten. Not sure why I haven’t gotten to it yet, I guess other books keep interrupting.
A big book you’d like to read:
I don’t like to read a lot of tomes! That being said, one book I’d really like to get to is The Fox by Sherwood Smith which is the sequel to Inda and the second book in the Inda Quartet. I really loved Inda! I’m not sure why I haven’t gotten to The Fox yet except that it looks so very long. In reality it’s only 691 pages and that’s not too bad, I suppose. 🙂
An author you’ve previously read and would like to read more of:
Patricia McKillip! I really love everything I’ve read by her and I have so many of her works in my TBR. I would love to read at least one or two this year. Not sure which I’d pick because I have a lot to choose from.
A book you got for Christmas and would like to read:
The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher. My husband bought me several books for Christmas but this was the only actual novel, the others were graphic novels and a self-help book. I’m actually looking forward to reading all of them.
A series you want to read from start to finish:
I don’t know, isn’t this how you generally read series? Haha. This must mean read it from start to finish in one year I guess? I don’t think there is any series I want to read straight through, that’s generally not how I do things, I tend to bounce around a lot. Maybe The Elemental Mysteries series by Elizabeth Hunter, one of my friends said I’d love this series and it looks like one I might binge.
A series you want to finish that you’ve already started:
I have SO MANY unfinished series! But, I’m going to have to go with The Lion Hunters by Elizabeth Wein. This book starts out with The Winter Prince, a very Arthurian story taking place in that universe with the next generation after Arthur. The second book follows one of those characters as they travel to Africa. Further books follow other characters. I’ve read the first two books and have three more to go to finish this series up. They’re shorter books so it shouldn’t take me too long to blast through them, I hope. So I plan to finish this series this year, starting with The Sunbird.
Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2020?
I do set goals! As for numbers, right now I have my goodreads goal set at 100 like last year, but I actually hope to once again double that number. The year is off to a slow start for me so far, so we’ll see how things go. 🙂
That’s it for this tag. What do you think of my picks? Not going to tag anyone but if you feel like filling this one out consider yourself tagged.
