Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hi Book Lovers!

I don’t do tags too often but find that I’m always reading and watching people do them. I want to be awesome, too. I’m a smidge behind on this tag but like everything else I’m always behind on here…oh well!

Let’s jump into the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag!

Best Book You’ve Read in 2018 So Far

While I’ve enjoyed most of the books I’ve read this year I think I’m going to pick my favorite being:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling.

This is my favorite H.P. book and I enjoy it more every time I read it. Sorry to be cliche.


Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2018

This was an easy pick.

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

This book was full of characters I enjoy, a story I love reading, and cliff hangers galore.


New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To

There are quite a few on this list, but the one I want to read the most is

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

It is a beautiful book and it looks like I’d enjoy it (hopefully!).


Most Anticipated New Release for the Second Half of the Year

A Spark of Light
I’ve never been shy about expressing my love for Jodi Picoult so when I heard months ago she had a book coming out this fall I was super excited.

A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult


Biggest Disappointment

King's Cage
I thought Glass Sword was rough, but then this guy came along and man, I was proven very wrong.

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

The more time passes since I read this the more I find myself disliking it to the point I want to change my rating and review. Ugh.


Biggest Surprise

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

I didn’t think I would like this as much as I did, truly. I thought it would be very “meh” for me, but months later I’m still thinking about it and I’m super glad I read it!


Favorite New Author (or New to Me Author)

I’m going with Tahereh Mafi. While I haven’t read any of her “older audience” books thus far, I enjoyed her middle-grade book, Furthermore.


Newest Ficitional Crush

I’m not really into this category as I don’t think anyone in a book has truly appealed to me that much. I respect those who have fictional crushes – I am just not one of them as of now in my reading life.


Newest Favorite Character

Kady from Illuminae!

I loved her sassiness, spunk, and will to live. I genuinely adored reading her story and wished it wouldn’t end.


Book That Made You Cry

Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult.

Like a baby.

I cried like a baby.


Book That Made You Happy

Renegades by Marissa Meyer.

I really liked this book and found myself pleasantly happy after I finished it (perhaps because of its enormous size?)


Favorite Book to Film Adaption

I don’t have an answer to this – I haven’t read 2018 releases that have been adapted to movies that I’ve seen.


Favorite Post You’ve Done So Far This Year

Probably the Book Lover’s Tag post. I enjoy Book Haul posts, too, but I think I had a lot of fun with that one. I haven’t branched out enough on my blog yet to have fun, creative things. Hopefully that will evolve as I do more with this blog through time!


Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year

This edition of A Tale of Two Cities.

The sides and back are also gorgeous and I pick it up and look at it often.


What Books Do You Need to Read by the End of the Year

Here are just a few of the MANY I want to finish by the end of the year!

Thanks for sticking this out with me. Let me know if you did this post so I can check it out!
