~ ThursTAG: New Year’s Book Tag

I have seen this tag all around this past week, so I decided that it might be fun to finally try it. I also saw on blogs that many people participate in ThursTAG where they post a tag every Thursday. I am not sure if I can keep it up with one book tag a week, but it is a fun goal to try. For the New Years book tag, I saw this over at Kristin Kraves Books.

How many books are you planning to read in 2023?

This year I set my Goodreads goal at 200 novels, which I plan to divide up between a mix of audiobooks and printed novels.

Name 5 books that you didn’t get to this past year, but want to make a priority in 2023.
  • Foul Lady Fortune (Foul Lady Fortune #1) – Published September 27, 2022 – I loved her other duology and meant to try out her latest one.
  • The Atlas Paradox (The Atlas #2) – Published October 25, 2022 – After finishing the first novel, I meant to start the second, but still need to read it.
  • Princess of Souls – Published October 11, 2022 – I loved Christo’s writing in To Kill a Kingdom and cannot wait to try this story.
  • The Empress of Time (The Keeper of Night #2) – Published October 4, 2022 – I enjoyed the first novel and cannot wait to see how it continues in this one.
  • Before I Do – Published October 11, 2022 – I loved the concept of this story and can’t wait to try out this novel soon.
What genre do you want to read more of?

There are a lot of genres that I read on occasion, but I think this year I may want to try more mysteries.

Name 3 non-related book goals for 2023.
  • Learn to cook more! I have my rotation of go-to meals that are usually crockpot/sheet pan type ones, so I want to learn some new more complex recipes.
  • Finally clean/organize my garage! This is something my family always has on the list of to-dos, but it keeps getting pushed off, so I want to attempt it this year.
  • Relax more! This one is more just taking some me-time when I need a break whether it’s a quick couple of minutes or a longer period of time.
What’s a book you have had forever and are determined to read?

This novel is one that I read as a kid and I’ve had it on my TBR to re-read as an adult. This year, one of my goals is to actually read it.

One word that you’re hoping 2023 will be.

HAPPY – I think this word works well as I don’t really have a huge goal for the direction of 2023 and instead just hope it is a happy year.

This was a fun book tag and I invite anyone who wants to participate to consider themselves tagged!

  1. That’s an impressive book goal – good luck with it! I so so fully rate your ‘one word for 2023’… honestly if I were to do this tag I think I would have to choose ‘happy’ too. At the end of the day, while there are lots of other things I want 2023 to be, like creative, productive, loving etc… happy is what they all amount to!
