Hello! I am here with the Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag!
I haven’t done this before so I am super excited to do it! And at the bottom of the post I plan on adding my reading goals for the rest of the year!
1. The best book you’ve read in 2018?
Ummm the best book I’ve read this year is probably a tie between Bright Side by Kim Holden, and Simon vs. The Homo Sapien’s Agenda.
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2018?
I think my favorite sequel is A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir.
3. New release you haven’t read, yet but want to?
Furyborn by Claire Legrand. I have a physical arc, an eArc and the hard copy and haven’t read it yet. I started it and I’m like 15 pages but I really want to continue it! It’s insane that I haven’t read it! I know I’m going to like it but yeah sadly haven’t completed it!
4. Most Anticipated Release for the second half of 2018?
Kindgom of Ash by Sarah J Maas! Of course! I am Sarah J Maas trash so I cannot wait for her next book!
5. Biggest Disappointment?
That would have to be Uprooted by Naomi Novak. I had such high hopes and I just felt that it was so boring and nothing happened.
6. Biggest Surprise?
I would have to say Shiver my Maggie Stiefvater and I was surprised because I haven’t heard many good things about this series because it’s about werewolves and everyone thinks this series is just meh but I loved it! I am loving this series! It’s so good!!
7. Favorite new author?
Marie Lu! I only read Warcross by her last year and this year I basically am reading all her other books! I literally only have Midnight Star to finish the Young Elites series and then Champion to finish the Legend Trilogy and I am just loving her work! She is definitely a favorite of mine forever and ever!
8. Newest Fictional Crush?
I would say Sam from the Shiver trilogy because he and the way he treats Grace is just adorable and so cute! They are goals! I love them! But Sam is just so cute! So so so sweet!
9. Newest Favorite character?
I’d have to say it’s a tie between both Sam and Grace from the Shiver trilogy, and then Kate from Bright Side! I can’t choose!
10. Book that made you cry?
Bright side by Kim Holden. No challenge. Bawled my eyes out.
11. Book that made you happy?
Simon vs. the Homo sapein’s agenda! Simon is just the bee’s knees! I adore him!
12. Favorite book to movie adaptation?
I actually haven’t seen anything yet that was a book to movie adaption….sadly. But I plan on watching Love, Simon with my friend Brittany!
13. Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far?
Um maybe Always, Never, Yours by Emily Wibberly and Austin Siegemund-Broka! This cover is beautiful!
14. Favorite review you’ve written this year?
I don’t really have a favorite! I like all my reviews that I’ve written! I don’t post them if I’m not really proud of them so yeah!
15. What books do you need to read by the end of this year?
Ummmm okay top 5!
- A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
2. Eliza and her Monster by Francesca Zappia
3. Frost like Night by Sara Raasch
4. What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
5. The Raven King by Maggie Steifvater!
and here are some of my goals!
Goal 1: Only by 5-10 books the rest of the year. My reason for that is because I want to get as much read off my shelves as I can! I want to cut down my TBR for this year and get it to 150 since I’m sure it’s at like 200 something since I have so many books! By my goal is the read all that I can off my shelves only!
Goal 2: My other goal is to not feel so pressured to be a certain way on my blog! I look at others and wonder why I can’t have things the way they do and I need to focus on myself, and be happy with what I have and not be so worried about other people.
Goal 3: My last goal is to read more books that I want to read. I get so absorbed in books I need to read for review, and I want to make more time for the books that I want to read off my shelves. I mean the books I want to read I usually listen to on audiobook but I think the rest of this year I plan on reading more books physically that I really want to read!
And that is the Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag and my Reading Goals for the rest of the year!
