Hey everyone! I’m very excited to do this tag(my first tag!) and a big thank you to TheLibraryLizard for tagging me! I can’t believe we’re already past the mid year mark. Before I know it, it’ll be Halloween! But anyway, on with the tag.
Best Book You’ve Read Yet in 2016: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! It was my first read of the year and it really set the bar high.
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2016: The Rose and the Dagger. So so beautiful. It was the perfect ending to a amazing duology.
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To: I haven’t been able to pick up My Lady Jane and And I Darken. I’ve been on this weird mystery/thriller kick… I know, totally normal for the summer season.
Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year: Up until just a few weeks ago it was Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor but the release got pushed back! *Cries for days* So, I think I’m going with Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I love the Lunar Chronicles so I’m very excited to see where Meyer takes this retelling. Oh and Gemina! Ah I can’t wait for that sequel.
Biggest Disappointment of 2016 So Far: The Widow by Fiona Barton & Egghead by Bo Burnham
Biggest Surprise: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury! I really enjoyed that story. I love a good Aladdin retelling.
Favourite New Author: Rick Rordan! It seems sort of odd to write that( I mean he has written like a billion books) but I’ve finally read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and there’s no turning back. I’m obsessed.
Newest Fictional Crush: Its totally sad but I don’t have one! I’m hoping that changes really soon.
Newest Favourite Character: Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse.
Book That Made You Cry: Ummm oh Me Before You
Favourite Book to Film Adaptation: The BFG! That film was beautiful and The BFG holds a place in my heart for being one of the books to cement my love for reading.
Favourite Post I’ve Done This Year: Umm I think I’m going with my first Top Ten Tuesday post . The topic was song I wish were books and I had a lot of fun doing it.
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year: This is sort of cheating cause I don’t have it yet but Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I bought a special UK edition and it won’t ship till the 18th of August I think( which sucks) but its totally worth it( I hope).
What Book Do You Need to Read by the End of the Year: ALL OF THEM?!?! I’m hoping to finish the Heroes of Olympus series. One of my goals for the year was to read that series and the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I already finished the latter so I hope to get the rest read before the year is through.
Thank you all for reading! And a special thank you to TheLibraryLizard again for tagging me. Till next time
