Wow I cannot believe it’s already time for the Mid-Year Freak Out tag! I have already completed my Goodreads reading challenge and I am feeling pretty good about myself right now!
I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but decided to do it anyway. Also I have no idea who created this tag so if you know, please feel free to let me know so I can tag them!
BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ IN 2017 SO FAR
Right now I am going with WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI by Sandhya Menon. If you haven’t read this book, please do so immediately. It is the perfect rom-com for summer reading. It’s so cute and filled with the most adorable two nerds ❤
BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017
I could not pick up any other book besides LORD OF SHADOWS by Cassandra Clare. This was one of the most amazing sequels I’ve read since ACOMAF. It is quite the roller coaster though. So be prepared for some major heart-stopping moments!
NEW RELEASE THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT WANT TO
I am so sad I haven’t gotten to read this yet! I am such Hamiltrash and I was anticipating this release for so long! What makes matters worse is I don’t even own it yet! 😥
MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR
I know. No one is as shocked as I. However, I think ACOMAF was so perfect that I just had too high expectations. There was so much war plotting and scheming that it just got lost for me. Rhys wasn’t the same snark High Lord that stole my heart because he just bent to Feyre’s every whim. Plus there are all those issues that SJM included surrounding the LGBT+ rep. I acknowledge the problematic material and I think it just rubbed me the wrong way even if I still somewhat enjoyed the book. But as a finale, not so much. I know that SJM is planning the spinoff books so that let the ending too open ended. But I can’t wait to read the next books! I hope one of them is about my bby Tarquin!!
I am going with WHEN LIFE GETS IN THE WAY by Ines Vieira. I am surprised how much I fell in love with this book and Isaac and Cassie! The story really tugged at my heartstrings and made me feel so badly for Isaac! Plus, Cassie’s brother Nicky???? Ines has made me fall completely in love with one single character in less than a few pages. I don’t know how she did it, but she did. I can’t wait for his story!
If you haven’t read this book, do it!
FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR (DEBUT OR NEW TO YOU)
Definitely Adam Silvera aka the only author who has made me cry at page 1. His writing is so special. His stories are so special. He is now one of my all time favorite authors. I will read literally anything he writes from now on.
NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH ❤
Oh lord so many!!! I’ll just make a list for this one because there is literally too many to find fanart for lmao.
- Nicky Mackenize from WHEN LIFE GETS IN THE WAY by Ines Vieira | Now we don’t really see a lot of Nicky in this book, but it was enough to get me completely in love with him! I can’t wait to read more about him and see him in his own novel! Ines is going to make me the happiest when I finally get some more Nicky ❤
- Paul Markov from THE FIREBIRD TRILOGY by Claudia Gray
- Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf (I know this isn’t book related. Shh I love him)
- Azriel from ACOTAR (he is my mate. it’s true) | okay i’ve always loved him but now I am obsessed and I am fully convinced that he is my mate. if you’ve read ACOTAR you know what I mean *nudge nudge*
NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER
Dante Quintana from ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE by Benjamin Alire Saenz. He is a precious cupcake and I love him to bits.
I don’t know the artist or else I would have tagged.
BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
THIS BOOK IS SO EMOTIONAL! I dare you to read it and not cry!
BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
This is my favorite book. I’ve already read it 4 times because whenever i’m sad I want to be back with Simon and Blue.
MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT SO FAR (OR RECEIVED)
LOOK AT IT!! That cover is so gorgeous! ❤ ❤ ❤
WHAT BOOKS DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR 2016?
It’s been a year since I’ve read Drums of Autumn 😦 I don’t know if I want to continue reading Outlander, but I figured I better just read book 5 and decide.
Well there you have it! I can’t believe I actually did a post for my blog! I am so proud of myself!
