Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

I was tagged by Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek to do this tag. She has quite an amazing blog so if you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly suggest it.  Onto the tag!!




Best book/series you’ve read in 2016??

Really?? How can a tag ask a question like this??  Okay…uhm…. best…


This duology kept me on the edge of my seat, and I just wanted to instantly re-read it after putting it down.  I highly suggest it…



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

Oh my I don’t even know where to begin… I’ll just slap some pictures below of my favorite new finds this year.



Most anticipated book turned TV/Movie show.

I honestly don’t know how to answer this one.  I can’t think of one that I would really want to go see… I think I would see A Monster Calls, maybe if I was in the mood for it.  The book broke my heart so I don’t know if I could watch the movie.

A Monster Calls



Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss with at midnight. 

Well if I didn’t have a husband I would have to pick…Jax from Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis.  I always go back to this book, he was one of my very first “book boyfriends”.  I adore him and his big heart.  I’m not going to lie his hotness doesn’t hurt 😉




What on my TBR for 2017?

To be honest… a little bit of everything!! lol I don’t even know where to start.  I am trying this year to not take so many author/publisher requests and do more of my own TBR.  I think close up to the front of my list are the following…


How many books do you plan to read in 2017?

I set the goal of 125 books this year.  I tend to read between 120-135 books a year depending on the year and such.  So I think 125 is doable, I try not to stress over reading goals.


Will you participate in the Goodreads reading challenge or any other? 

I do set up my Goodreads challenge only to see  how I am doing throughout the year. If I don’t hit my goal it’s A-okay by me.  I also try to keep up with a FB group a follow called Bitches with Books they usually have a reading challenge but I always forget to check off what I’m reading and by the end of the year I never know if I hit it or not!


Any New Year’s resolutions (bookish, blogging, or otherwise)?

Good lord I would love to get better at blogging but alas I think I’m at a stale mate for now.  I have told myself I will not take on as many publisher/author requests every month from now on and try to just read my own TBR.  I noticed a lot last year I was putting off books I wanted to read to read for publishers.  Don’t get me wrong I feel unbelievably blessed to be able to get advanced books to read but I have a hard time saying no.  Now I have decided to limit myself every month to a certain number of books to review that aren’t my own.

Time to TAG!! (if you have already done this or don’t want too then don’t)

      1. GAHHH!! I have heard mixed things about the series so we shall see. Thank you for letting me know about that though..no one has mentioned that it gets better after book 2.


      1. Oh maybe it was a colouring book I saw, I honestly didn’t look into it just saw her name and a book cover. But now that I think about it the cover does seem like a colouring book haha.

  1. Thanks for doing the tag Debby and I loved reading all of your answers!
    Definitely agree that Six of Crows was amazing although I still need to read Crooked Kingdom!
    A Monster Calls is really one of the only book/movie adaptations I’m looking forward too and the book broke my heart too so I need to prepare myself for many tears.
    I also have The Name of the Wind and Half Bad on my TBR as well although I may not get to them this year.
    Also 125 books is an impressive goal, holy crap! I’m lucky if I read 70 books in a year and that’s including graphic novels! Although I agree it’s definitely important not to stress over over reading goals! 🙂
