My first ever taggy-thing! My thanks goes to Becca, one of the sweetest bloggers I know. Seriously, check her out!
I’m currently finishing up Think Yourself Lucky by Ramsey Campbell, but other than that, no. Most books I start are done within a week, more or less. There’s a few that drag on, but I always like to begin a new year with a clean slate.
No, and I never have.
I actually don’t pay much attention to new releases. I don’t think I’ve ever pre-ordered or bought a book within its first month (if I have it’s a rarity). Sure, they may catch my eye and I usually get around to them, but there’s so-so many already that deserve my attention.
I’ve been looking forward to Kin by Kealan Patrick Burke, The Mongrel by Seán O’Connor, and The Faithful by Matt Hayward. Unfortunately however, I don’t think I’ll be getting around to them until January due to finishing up several ARCs. They’re my most anticipated reads though!
It’s always plausible that a favourite will take me unawares, but I have my doubts. I’m an extremely nitpicky reader. In an entire year I’ve only had three five-star reads. A book needs one hell of a punch to be put on that top shelf.
Yes, actually! I’m making a promise I’ll read more of what I want. I won’t be opening the review flood gates until later in the year. This will give me time to get through the gigantic stack I’ve accumulated recently.
I tag the entire Ladies of Horror Fiction Team (Jen, GracieKat, Laurie, Lilyn, Toni, Alex, Emily & Tracy)!
