Happy New Year!!
I hope this year will be wonderful for all of you!
I just wanted to get that out, before actually starting this tag. Also, soon I’ll be writing the end of the year survey where I’ll be recapping my reading year – look forward to that, as I’ll be writing about most of the books that I read this year.
I was tagged by Kourtni @KourtniReads to do this tag, basically yesterday
(so yaaaaay for me actually doing a tag on time). Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog!!
This tag fits really well for the beginning of the year, so I decided to do it as soon as possible. I just came home from my friends house, where I spent all day. And yes, it was wonderful and I had a lot of fun. Now, let’s stop rambling and actually get into the tag!

Tag friends (or not if you don’t feel like it)
Best book and/or series that you’ve read in 2016?
Anyone who knows me won’t be surprised that I picked Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.
(I keep mentioning them ALL THE TIME, so it’s pretty obvious how much I adored them and why I’m picking them.) I read both of these books, for the first time, this year and I absolutely LOVED them!! I fell in love with the story from page one and I loved all the characters. So these were basically the perfect books for me. (READ THEM, if you haven’t yet.)
Authors that you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year?
Ryan Graudin. I read Wolf by Wolf by her some time ago and really loved it. It was such an amazing book and I really do want to read more from her. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hand on Blood for Blood soon and read it as well.
Marissa Meyer. I read Cinder this year for the first time.
(Yes, I know I’m very late to this series.) I found the world to be fascinating, the characters lovable and I really want to continue with The Lunar Chronicles. Plus I want to read Heartless as well. So basically there are many of her books that I want to read.
Most anticipated book turned movie/tv show?
Honestly I don’t have an answer for this one. I’m not big on book adaptation (be it movie or tv show), I just don’t get that exited about them. Especially movie ones, since I don’t watch that many movies in the first place. And I honestly can’t think of a title from the top of my head and, let’s be real, I’m waaaay to lazy to look up the upcoming ones. So if I can’t think of anything, it means I’m not really anticipating anything.
Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss with at midnight (if there is one).
Well, the first one that came to mind was Mr. Knightley from Emma by Jane Austen. I just recently reread this book and it reminded me how much I love George Knightley as a characters. So I’m definitely picking him for this one!
(Plus I don’t think I would mind sharing a kiss with any character that I like, sooo this could be a really long list as well.)
What’s on your TBR for 2017? (Top 5 will suffice if it’s an extremely long list!)
I decided to choose 5 books that I already own and that I really want to read this year
(and I really should have already read them). We shall see when I’m actually going to get around to all of them, hopefully soon – but I do say that all the time.
How many books do you hope to read in 2017?
Basically as many books as possible, which is always my goal.
(And I’m sure it’s everyone else’s as well.) I do hope to read many long books this year and to actually catch up to series that I have started. Especially high fantasy series, where the books are massive tomes.
Will you participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge or any others (PopSugar, Read the Books You Buy, etc.)?
I will be participating in the goodreads reading challenge, as I have done for some years now.
(Three. Yes, I just looked it up.)
My challenge this year is to read 7 books. Why?
Because that’s my favourite number and because I don’t want to pressure myself with a high reading goal this year. I think I’ll have enough stress without setting a big reading goal.
(Or any reading goal for that matter.)
I’m not doing any other challenges. I don’t think I have ever done any other reading challenge, they just don’t suit me and I can’t be bothered to do them.
Any New Year’s Resolutions? (Bookish, blogging, and otherwise)
Be a better version of me than I was last year.
That’s basically the only one that I have. I don’t do “proper” resolutions, because I know that I won’t stick to them. And I would only be disappointed in myself when I eventually fail to uphold them. So I’m not even really bothering with them.
