Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

I don’t do tags often but this one looked fun. I was tagged by the oh so lovely Laura @ thebookcorps! If you are ever in need of a book recommendation, she is your girl.


Let’s do this:

BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR SO FAR

  • Oh this is tough. I already have a list of my best reads this year and there are currently 7 books on it…….. I think I’ll go with Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst. Gotta love badass princesses and a romance that actually makes sense.

BEST SEQUEL OF THE YEAR SO FAR

  • Definitely Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo! I loved the Shadow and Bone Trilogy as a whole so no question about it.

A NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT WANT TO:

  • King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. I often go to book stores with my friend Bria and she pointed out that every time we pass this book, I touch it. I really want to buy it but I need the second one to be out because I don’t want to wait. I love Nikolai and the GrishaVerse and I cannot wait to jump in it!

MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR:

  • Of Ice and Shadows by Audrey Coulthurst! Luckily the wait is almost over. Princess Peach and Katniss return 🙂

YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT OF THE YEAR SO FAR:

  • Without question: Odd One Out by Nic Stone. I hated this book so much that I took notes in it. You can check out my super ranty review here.

YOUR BIGGEST SURPRISE OF THE YEAR SO FAR:

  • Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. This one was a surprise because I knew that it would be good but I had no idea that I would fall in love with it the way I did. I’m planning to reread it within the next few months.

YOUR NEW FAVORITE AUTHOR:

  • Diana Wynne Jones. Howl’s gave me a major book hangover.

YOUR NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER:

  • Evelyn Hugo. I don’t think I need to say more

YOUR NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH:

  • Nikolai Lantsov.

A BOOK THAT HAS MADE YOU CRY:

  • I don’t think I’ve read a real tearjerker since They Both Die at the End.

A BOOK THAT HAS MADE YOU HAPPY:

  • Howl’s Moving Castle. Honestly, it gives off a similar magical feeling that you would get from HP

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK OF THE YEAR SO FAR:

  • Also Howl’s. However, that’s because I listened to it on audiobook and the narrator is fantastic.

SOME BOOKS YOU NEED TO READ BEFORE 2019 ENDS:

  • Vicious by V. E. Schwab, The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, and Inkmistress by Audrey Coulthurst. Why they all happen to have red covers, I don’t know

    I have been wanting to read Of Fire and Stars, it looks really good! Omg I remember you raving about Howl’s Moving Castle and I REALLY want to read it, I love the movie though apparently it’s a bit different. I can’t believe we are already half way through the year, time just keeps flying. I hope you have a wonderful 2nd half of 2019 xx
