End of the Year Book Tag 2022


I have three days left in 2022, so it’s now or never for my End of the Year Book Tag, huh? This tag was originally created by Booktuber Ariel Bisset. I started doing the End of the Year Book Tag back in 2020 as a way to reflect on the books I’d read in the year. Now, I feel like it’s not a new year if I haven’t done this and my End of the Year Gaming Tag. 



Are there any books you started this year that you still need to finish?


Yes, I started reading The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison on December 24th. Though I’m finding it interesting and the main character compelling, I don’t think I’m really in the right headspace for this political high fantasy novel at present, so I’m not sure I’ll finish it by the new year.




Have You Completed Your Goodreads Challenge?













Yes, I somehow managed to complete my Goodreads challenge again this year! All it took was for me to read 15 books in the month of December alone. But anyways, a three year streak feels pretty amazing.


Do You Have An Autumnal Book To Transition Into The End Of The Year?

I actually read quite a few spooky books this year during the fall! For more information on these books check out my reviews of The Golden Enclaves, The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches, The Magician’s Daughter, and Small Spaces. Though all of these books were fun, The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches was such a precious and cozy novel that it really stood out amongst the rest of the novels I read in the fall (plus, it was gifted to me by my dear friend Meghan from Meghan Plays Games, which only served to make this sweet book even more precious). On the other hand of the spectrum The Twisted Ones was super suspenseful and definitely a spooky read for the middle of the night.


Later on, in December, I read even more spooky-esque books like The House with Good Bones and The Seventh Bride.


Is There A New Release You’re Still Waiting For?

There are no new releases that I’m waiting for left in 2022, since I am once again filling this tag out at the eleventh hour and there’s only three days left in the year. Next year, I’m greatly anticipating the follow up to The Priory of the Orange Tree, called A Day of Fallen Night.


What Are Three Books You Want To Read Before The End Of The Year?

I’m sadly very burned out, so I doubt I’ll be finishing three books in three days. But in 2023, I’d like to pick The Stormlight Archive back up, as well as read all of Brandon Sanderson’s Kickstarter novels that I backed, and to make more progress in The Wheel of Time series.


Is There A Book You Think Could Still Shock You And Become Your Favorite Book Of The Year?

This is why I should fill out this tag earlier in the year. No, I’m currently reading The Goblin Emperor, which I know is very popular, but I don’t think it will end up becoming my favorite book of the year.


Have You Already Started Making Reading Plans For 2023?

Yes! Next year, I am going to set my reading challenge purposefully low. I want to focus on reading the books I want to read rather than worrying about hitting a number goal.



What did your year of reading look like in 2022? Did you meet all of your goals? Wishing you all the best in the remaining days of 2022 and a wonderful 2023!

  1. I feel you on the burnout and can tell you a lower reading goal is a good way to combat that! I’m taking it a step further this year by reducing ARCs so I can just mood read and get the spark of joy back haha

    • That is such a smart thing to do. I know I always feel that I *have* to read ARCs before everything else and as a mood reader, that can suck the joy out of it. I hope you can nurture that reading joy in 2023! ??
