Mid-Year Freak-Out Book Tag
After seeing this tag featured on Howling Libraries, I remembered it’s that time of year again when bloggers all seem to take part in the mid-year freak-out. So here we go…
Best book I’ve read so far in 2019:
There were three books in the running but I’ve decided to go with The Poppy War as it was unlike anything I’ve read before.
favourite sequel of the first half of the year:
I absolutely loved Kingsbane by Claire Legrand but the ending has me desperate for book three.
A new release I haven’t read yet but I’m really excited about:
Most anticipated release for the second half of 2019:
There are four books I’m desperate to read but I’m going with Bloodchild by Anna Stephens as it’s the final book in the Godblind Trilogy.
I’m quite good at choosing books I know I’ll enjoy but I bought Superman: Dawnbreaker to complete my collection and just found it boring.
I hadn’t heard of Viper when I first received a proof copy so didn’t know what to expect. However, I found myself staying up late to finish this fun pirate adventure and can’t wait for the sequel.
Favourite new-to-me or debut author:
Favourite fictional crush:
He’s too young for me but Ashish from There’s Something About Sweetie is the cutest. Sandhya Menon writes perfect contemporary romances with cinnamon-roll love interests.
New favourite character:
Daisy Jones & The Six felt like a real biography and no character was more realistically complex than Daisy herself.
A book that made me cry:
This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay had me crying with laughter so I’ll go with that one.
A book that made me happy:
Heartstopper Vol. 1 by Alice Oseman was adorable and made me so happy.
Favourite book to movie/TV show of the year so far:
I don’t think any adaptation will ever beat Good Omens.
Favourite post I’ve written this year:
I love talking about Jane Austen so probably my top ten favourite Austen adaptations.
Most beautiful book I’ve bought in the first half of 2019:
I think the prettiest book I bought this year has to be the Goldsboro edition of Aurora Rising. It was also the most difficult book I’ve ever bought thanks to technical difficulties.
6 books I want to read by the end of the year:
I have so many books on my TBR pile but these six are ones I definitely plan to read before the end of the year.
Feel free to consider yourself tagged if you’d like to take part. I hope you’ve had a great reading year so far!
