It’s tag time again and it’s time for that tag that always does the rounds in November and December, The End of the Year Tag. It’s a great one to wrap up the year and have a think about plans for the new year. If you’d like to do the tag, consider yourself tagged and please post a link to your post below so I can check out your answers. Happy End of the Year!!
Are there any books you’ve started this year that you need to finish?
I’m a little ashamed to say there are four books on my slowly reading shelf. I made this shelf on Goodreads for books that I started reading and then kind of lost interest in but was still enjoying… Basically, I wasn’t in the mood to read them at the time but still want to read them.
I’m only about 80 pages away from finishing this book but I read a spoiler somewhere and haven’t been bothered with reading the ending.
I’m in no hurry to finish this one even though it’s really short. I like to read some books really slowly and this is one of those.
I’m so familiar with this story and I don’t really like this one but I really want to read the illustrated editions not just flip through the pages. So, yeah, it’s taking me ages to get through.
This is the first time I haven’t devoured a book by Karen Chance! AND it’s Pritkin’s book which makes it even weirder! I have no idea why but I just haven’t been feeling this.
Do you have an autumnal/winter book to transition into the end of the year?
I recently made a list of Christmas books on Scribd to read in December. It’s mostly romances cause I like something easy going and feel good during this busy time. Check out the list here.

Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
Shatter the Earth by Karen Chance
The next instalment in the Cassie Palmer series was due out sometime in December but it has been pushed to January. I was expecting this happen so I’m not really disappointed…..too much. It’s the 10th book and I loved the previous one so I’m excited for this.
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
I mentioned these in my December TBR along with a few others but these are the ones I really want to read.
I’m behind the hype with this one but I’ve heard it’s really good.
A little behind the hype again. I’ve heard this is even better than the first book so I’m excited to read it.
A popular urban fantasy series I somehow haven’t started yet!
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
I expect at least one of the above books to be really good and could easily become a favourite. I’m leaning towards Skinwalker being a favourite at the moment because it’s so popular with urban fantasy fans and I am a big urban fantasy fan.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?
My only solid plan so far is to read 80 – 90 books. I would like to read more print books than I did this year and fit in more classics and historical fiction.

Hi everyone, happy crafting day!! This is my favourite posting day. I just LOVE creating things and each week the project is a bit of a surprise to me. I start out with a vague idea of what I want to make and then just start! This week I got a new set of tarot… Read more
My idea behind this was a collection of items a Georgian lady might be given by her lover/sweetheart. So I created this keepsake envelope collection that can be used as a reading journal and included Persuasion by Jane Austen because of the letter near the end of the book. Any book where the characters exchange… Read more
Hi everyone and happy Tuesday! For today’s project, we’re making some bookmarks with flowers on top. I got this idea from Rainey at Rainey Day Reads who suggested using them on the ribbons of my recovered Wordsworth Editions after I posted some of my flowers on Instagram. I loved that idea but the ones I… Read more
Hi everyone, I made these mini book journals with pockets mostly to use up some 12×12 papers I have but I love them! They would be perfect for tracking monthly reading or keeping a condensed reading journal. I discovered this type of book from Maymay Made It Crafts who made a brag book for showing… Read more
I did not know what to call this post!! It’s basically a book journal about a single book instead of a bunch of books and includes the actual book. I wanted to make something to protect my edition of Falling for a Dancer and have some way to keep notes on it so this is… Read more
To be fair, this is more of a Might Be Read list cause I am terrible at sticking to TBR’s. Hopefully, you’ll get some ideas for what to read for the readathon but if you don’t I have a Goodreads shelf with loads more recommendations. As always, there’s no pressure to complete the challenges. You… Read more
It’s called The Wild Unknown https://amzn.to/325qo1d I love it, it’s so artistic!
What tarot deck did you get? I like the 3 twigs as the 3 of wands!Sent via the Samsung Galaxy…
Thanks! I love having them nice and safe in their box.
This is an awesome idea. I really need to make one now because my tarot decks are just stacked on…
I’m sure I will!! Thanks again!!
