What genre have you read most this year?
Definitely fantasy, It is my favorite genre especially high or epic fantasy. But another genre I read an overwhelmingly large number of books from is Paranormal fantasy, I went through a paranormal phase over the summer and these books have 8+ books in each series so those quickly added up.

Other than Science Fiction I want to read more historical fiction. I love historical fiction and I’m disappointed that I didn’t read all that much this year. I need to get around to reading more.
How many books have you read this year, and what’s your goal?
I have read a total 204 books this year and I actually surpassed my Goodreads goal which was at first 175 and then I changed it to 200. I’m really proud of myself for actually achieving my goal, I didn’t think I would be able to do it.

What’s a book you can’t wait to read?
I legit cannot wait for A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas. I need to know what happens next and return to that world. I’m equal parts sad and excited to find out how this series will come to an end.

There’s quite a few but i’ll just stick to a couple of series I would recommend to everyone. Y’all should definitely read the Outlander series, A Court of Thorns and Roses series and the Lunar chronicles.

I hope Marissa Meyer write more books. Hopefully she’ll continue on with her retelling theme and write more because I loved the Lunar chronicles.

The impending end of the Throne of Glass series as well as the ACOTAR series saddens me. Also the end to the Passenger duology and the Shades Of Magic Trilogy.
