I've just been nominated by Emily @ Ink, Inc. to complete the Bookish Book Lover Tag - thanks very much, Emily! If you haven't checked out her blog, you're really missing out.
1. What book are you currently reading?
2. What's the last book you finished?
I just recently finished Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky on audio - I was surprised by how much I liked it. The audiobook narrator definitely earns a full star for her performance alone!
3. Favorite book you read this year?
I always have a hard time choosing just one when it comes to a question like this, but it may very well be The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.
4. What genre have you read most this year?
According to Goodreads, the answer is "other" but otherwise it's fantasy. I can't say I'm surprised!
5. What genre have you read least this year?
I've read the least of mystery this year - I am actually kind of surprised...
6. What genre do you want to read more of?
Based on the answer to the previous question, I'm going to have to go with mystery!
7. How many books have you read this year, and what's your goal?
So far I've read 156 books of my 200 book Goodreads goal - nearly there!
8. What's the last book you bought?
Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters
9. What book are you saving up to buy next?
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
10. How many books did you check out on your last library visit?
Only two - but it can be a challenge not to check out lots more (I'm a librarian, so I'm at the library all the time).
11. What's a book you can't wait to read?
Both A Gathering of Shadows and This Savage Song by V(ictoria). E. Schwab
12. What's a series you'd recommend to everyone?
William Ritter's Jackaby series
13. Who's an author you're hoping writes more?
William Ritter - either more Jackaby or anything, really!
14. A few books your heart adores?
15. What series' coming conclusion makes you sad?
I really don't want The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater to end, so I'm taking my time with the finale.
