Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

 

ringing in the new year book tag

With 2018 (and our AtoZ Reading Challenge!) only days away, I thought it would be fitting to reflect on 2017 just a bit with this super-fun tag that Crystal and I were tagged in by the lovely Bookmark Chronicles.

Q1 – Best book and/or series that you’ve read in 2017?
Best book – Fragile Chaos by Amber R. Duell
Best series – The Transcend Time Saga by Michelle Madow

Q2 – Authors that you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year?
There were so many amazing new (to me) authors that I found this year! Michelle Madow was definitely on that list, Madeline Martin (I didn’t realize I enjoyed historical fiction as much as I do until I started reading her Mercenary Maidens series), Teri Wilson (the start of The Royals series was so cute and I can’t wait to read the rest!), and Melissa Foster (I completely fell in love with Ty Braden this year!).

Q3 – Most anticipated book turned movie/tv show?
I keep up with new release movies about as well as new release books. What’s coming out in 2018? I will probably find out once they’ve already been released. Until then – suggestions, anyone?

Q4 – Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss with at midnight (if there is one).
I am going to tweak this a bit (already found my Prince Charming) and go with a character I would love to meet at a New Year’s party (two toddlers – when was the last time I even attended one of them?) Cairo and/or Thames are my picks! They’re brothers and oh so sexy!

Thor Loki

Q5 – What’s on your TBR for 2018 (5-10 will suffice if it’s an extremely long list)?
I am just going to go with the next 5 books that I am reading because . . . does my TBR list actually stop anywhere?

next 5 tbrWhite Knights – Julie Moffett
Prodigy Prince – Natasha Sapienza
23:27 – H.L. Roberts
Bayside Passions – Melissa Foster
Dark Guardian – Amaar Habib

Q6 – How many books do you hope to read in 2018?
All of them! In all seriousness, I am setting my Goodreads challenge goal for 100 books this year! And between the AtoZ Challenge and the Beat the Backlist Challenge, I should have plenty of books to choose from 🙂

Q7 – Will you be particpating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge or any others (PopSugar, Down the TBR Hole, etc)?
I’m keeping it simple this year, as Crystal and I are hosting our own challenge. But, because I have an unruly NetGalley list (and eventually they will stop approving me if I don’t get some reviewed!), I am joining up with Novel Knight for the Beat the Backlist Challenge.

Q8 – Any New Year’s Resolutions (bookish, blogging /vlogging, or otherwise)?
Our little blog has grown so much in the last two months. We are hoping to keep up the momentum and keep sharing our love of books with you! Also, a new banner (anyone out there have any recommendations?) I am also hoping to attend BEA (Book Expo America) in New York this year! It is in New York, right? That resolution depends on me getting on a plane . . .
