Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag!

I have seen this tag around YouTube, and I thought that it would be fun. It made me a little sad because my reading this year has not been great. The quality has been sub-par and the quantity hasn’t been up to my standards. It’s been a tough year so far, but I am hoping that the last half of the year will be better!

  1. Best book you have read so far in 2019? I haven’t read a lot of books that have blown my mind. There are a few I rated highly, but now I question if I actually liked them that much. It’s either Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas, or All Systems Red by Martha Wells. 
  2. Best sequel you have read this year? Artificial Condition (Murderbot Diaries #2) by Martha Wells. 
  3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to? There are many. Recursion by Blake Crouch, Middlegame by Seanan McGuire, The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. 
  4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year? Lock Every Door by Riley Sager or Regretting You by Colleen Hoover. 
  5. Biggest disappointment: Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I have not given anything written by her less than 4 stars. I ended up giving this one 3 stars. 
  6. Biggest surprise: Not a lot has even surprised me. I’m surprised I started reading romance. I’d say the biggest surprise is either The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren, or Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas. 
  7. Favorite new author (Debut or new to you): Martha Wells or Madeline Miller. 
  8. Newest fictional crush: Pike Lawson from Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas.
  9. Newest favorite character: Murderbot in the Murderbot Diaries series. 
  10. Book that made you cry: The only book that was even remotely sad was Radium Girls by Kate Moore. The Test by Sylvain Neuvel was also quite sad.
  11. Book that made you happy: Filling out this tag makes me realize how 1) little I have read this year, and 2) how poor the reading quality has been. I keep answering with the same books. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. 
  12. Most beautiful book you’ve bought this year (or received): Any book I bought from Book Depository written by Taylor Jenkins Reid. 
  13. What books do you need to read by the end of the year? Too many! Here are a few:
  • The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang
  • The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

I have recently joined the book community and I am enjoying it. I will be reviewing books on this blog as well as posting other bookish related posts. Most of the books I read are Young Adult but I'll try to read any genre. Let me know your opinions, but be respectful of others. Don't forget to tell people about this blog if you enjoy it!
