Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Yes, yes, I know. We’re in the 9th month and it is way past 6 months for this tag, but I just completely forgot I wanted to do it so here I still go!

1. Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2019?

I think it’s got to be Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte, that book just blew me away!

2. Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2019?

Does A Gathering Of Shadows count if I read it on December 29 last year..? Because I have read a total of one (1) sequels this year, which is Glass Sword. But I also read Heartstopper II so I think that one counts as well!

3. New Release You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To?

Besides a lot of sequels to books that I haven’t yet read either, I did buy Priory of the Orange Tree, Enchantee, Spin The Dawn, Soul of the Sword, King of Fools, and The Princess and the Fangirl. There’s so many other new releases I want to read, but these are the ones actually waiting on my physical shelves haha

4. Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2019?

FIVE DARK FATES and SUPERNOVA. I need them so badly

5. Biggest Disappointment?

Probably Alice by Christina Henry.. I liked the idea, but the book was going to places that I don’t particularly enjoy reading about, sadly. Also, the character Alice seemed written really young, but those places were either really really bad or she’s a lot older than she seemed like.

6. Biggest Surprise?

I think Rite of Passage by John Passarella. I haven’t watched any Supernatural in years, but his book was written so well, it immediately brought me back to the world of Supernatural!

7. Favourite New Author?

Anna-Marie McLemore, since that’s the only new author I’ve read and really liked.. But I enjoyed When The Moon Was Ours a lot as well, so that’s good! Her other books are still on my wishlist!

8. Newest Fictional Crush?

I don’t really get crushes on fictional characters, but I got to say, I’ve read about a lot of awesome people this year.

9. Newest Favourite Character?

Hmmmmm…. I think either Farley from the Red Queen series, or Jax, from The Mechanical.

10. Book That Made You Cry?

I think none? I don’t cry at books easily..

11. Book That Made You Happy?

Honestly, not specifically a certain book. I think I’ve read too little books to say I’m more happy about one book next to the others..

12. Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You Saw This Year?

Not movie, but we watched Good Omens (and then I watched it another two times) and absolutely loved it!

13. Favourite Review You’ve Written This Year?

I haven’t written a lot of reviews so far, but I think Four Dead Queens was quite well πŸ™‚

14. Most Beautiful Book You Bought So Far This Year?

So, so many. But we did buy the illustrated edition of Good Omens, so that one is amazingly beautiful on the inside as well!
I mean, look at that

15. What Books Do You Need To Read By The End of The Year?

ALL OF THEM. But for the serious, I hope to have read both new releases I’ve talked about earlier this post, and other than that I have no specific list πŸ™‚
Sooo now that I’ve done that tag, I can do the autumn tag ^^; shame on me xD
Did I list any favorite books of yours? Or do you have some good recommendations for me? I’d love to hear them all!
Check out all my reviews here!
