There couldn’t have been a better time to be tagged by Megan @ Ginger Mom & the Kindle Quest to do the Ring in the New Year Book Tag! She was tagged by the  Bookmark Chronicles to do the tag, and then tagged some of her newest followers, including me! So definitely check out both of their blogs when you’re done reading!

Here are the rules for this tag:

  1. Link to the person who tagged you (that would be The Lexington Bookie )
  2. Link to the creator of the tag (Bookmark Chronicles)
  3. Share the tag image.
  4. Answer the questions below.
  5. Tag friends (or not).

Q1 – Best book and/or series that you’ve read in 2017?

Since I answered best book, I’ll answer with best series, which easily goes to the Hunger Games. I did movie comparison reviews of them since they have been out for a while and are already so popular, but I really enjoyed reading them, and they kept me engrossed from book to book, needing to know what was going to happen with Katniss and Peeta.

Q2 – Authors that you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year?

I’m so terrible at remembering author names (I’m terrible with names and dates, truthfully) but I’ve read two Jennifer McMahon books (one in late 2016, one in late  201) and I will absolutely be reading more of her books. I also have read two Paula McLain books this year and really enjoyed those, so I will be looking for more of hers to read!

Q3 – Most anticipated book turned movie/tv show?

I was really excited to read and see The Circle, since I’m a fan of Emma Watson… unfortunately, it didn’t live up to the hype, in my opinion.

Q4 – Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss with at midnight (if there is one).

Make me blush, why don’t you? If you asked me in general terms, I’ll always be looking for my Rhett Butler- reputation be damned, he could love a woman at her best and her worst. But a little midnight kiss from a character I met in 2017? It would be a race between Ian from the Host and Peeta from Hunger Games.

Q5 – What’s on your TBR for 2018 (5-10 will suffice if it’s an extremely long list)?

SO. MANY. BOOKS. Here’s the Top 10:

  1. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
  2. The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
  3. A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay
  4. She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb
  5. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
  6. Girls Like Us by Sheila Weiler
  7. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  8. This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
  9. Every Last Cuckoo by Kate Maloy
  10. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Q6 – How many books do you hope to read in 2018

My goal for 2018 will be 50 books! I’m going with one per week, and hoping that it’ll be a pretty reasonable pace for the year no matter what happens!

Q7 – Will you be participating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge or any others (PopSugar, Down the TBR Hole, etc)?

I will be doing the Goodreads challenge for the first time! I am also hoping to host my first Instagram monthly challenge, but I haven’t worked on the idea yet. You guys will be the first to know when I do!

Q8 – Any New Year’s Resolutions (bookish, blogging /vlogging, or otherwise)?

  1. Read 50 books.
  2. Finish my outdoor house projects.
  3. Hit my savings account goal and pay off my moving expenses loan.
  4. Better self care & healthy choices.
