The Mid Year Freakout Book Tag

I was tagged by Saniya @ sunnysidereviews. I enjoy Saniya’s insight on books and adore the blog’s banner. It’s cute! If you get a chance, check the blog out!

The Mid Year Freakout Book Tag provided an opportunity to look back at my year thus far, mostly good with only one or two not so good.

The Best Books You’ve Read so Far

Because I’ve read quite a few I consider to be best books this year, I’ll limit it to just a few that come to mind. The most recent one is Ignite the Stars. I’m still reeling from the end of the duology and all the emotions Milan put me through.

New Releases You Haven’t Read Yet, but Want To

I waited impatiently for these and when they arrived, I was too anxious to read them.

Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year

I am so excited for all of these, but probably especially The Bone Shard Emperor. Andrew Stewart keeps teasing it and the third book on Twitter. It’s so devastating because it cannot get in my hands fast enough.

Biggest Disappointment

I am so angry with this book. Last year, I also had a historical romance novel that disappointed me also. Argh.

Biggest Surprises

I adored both of these two books. I’m still working on the review for Ignite the Stars. Spoiler alert: It’s 5 stars.

Favorite New to You Author

Stacey Lee
After I read The Downstairs Girl, I quickly went through the rest of her novels. Lee reminded me why I used to love historical fiction. Her historical fiction novels provide a glimpse of the history through the lens of those who are often removed from history. I’m eagerly awaiting the addition of her next novel.

Favorite Debut Author

Angeline Boulley
Boulley’s debut was an instant number 1 New York Times bestseller. I normally stay away from thrillers, but Daunis is a compelling character and many of themes resonated with me.

Newest Favorite Characters

Ia Cōcha
The Commonwealth’s most wanted criminal. A hero to rebels. Ia is badass. I love her.

A Book that Made You Cry

A Book that Made You Happy

Favorite Post You’ve Done this Year

This was a fun post and I’m hoping to do another discussing some other book related topic.
