Wow, can you all believe that it is already the middle of the year?!! 🤯 I’ve seen this tag floating around and I thought it would be fun to do it as well. I don’t know who started it but if you do know, let me know so I can acknowledge them. Let’s get to it!
Best book you’ve read so far in 2019
Omg I’ve read some pretty good one’s this year and I think I may have to list two for this question because it’s just too hard to choose!
I definitely jumped on the hype train with this one, and I love this book to pieces.
Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019
This is hands down the best sequel I’ve read this year. I loved this book! I was enthralled from the very beginning. Stephanie Garber’s way with words and descriptions had me entranced. I love the atmosphere in this book. I love the characters and the story.
New release you haven’t read but want to
I’ve already talked about this one as well in my post Six for Sunday: 2019 books I’m excited for. So, if you want to click over there and see what I have to say about this one and it’s synopsis then go ahead and do that.
Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
I think I’m going to have to go with The Bromance Book Club.
For one, this is set in my hometown of, Nashville, Tennessee. I never come across books that are set in Nashville so I’m sooo excited for that! Also, basically, Sarah’s review sums up what this book is about, “A book about a bunch of guys creating a book club to read romance as they try to understand their wives better? Oh this is going to be hilarious!”
I think this is going to be really sweet and funny and I can not wait to read it!
Honestly, it was Girls of Paper and Fire, and let me tell you, I want to love this sooo much. This book has gotten so much hype from literally everyone but it just didn’t do it for me and I’m still sad about it. I can appreciate what it was trying to do but, again, I didn’t like it.
I think I’m going to have to go with Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee. I had heard some kind of not so good reviews about this one, by some pretty popular booktube folks and a couple of other reviewers that I follow, but this turned out to be a five star for me. I loved this one!
Favorite new author
Thea De Salle hands down. I read The King of Bourbon Street last month and absolutely loved it. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and anything else that Thea De Salle writes!
Newest fictional crush
Ryan “Renegade” Kepler. I mean, that cover though😍 also he was just the perfect guy.
Newest favorite character
Simon from Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. He’s just so adorable and lovable.
Book that made you cry
Um, I’m not really a crier at books so I don’t think that I have an answer for this one.
Book that made you happy
I loved this graphic novel so much! It definitely made me happy and if you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend it!
Favorite book to film adaptation
I think I have two for this answer but the first is for sure Big Little Lies.
And I know I had Love, Simon for another answer but this is one of my favorite book to film adaptations as well.
Favorite post you’ve done this year
Hmmm. I feel like I’ve had a few that I really liked and thought that I did really well on them. I think my Unpopular Bookish Opinions was my favorite, though.
Most beautiful book you’ve bought this year
Honestly, I’ve bought a lot of beautiful covers this year but I think I’ll go with The Smell of Other People’s Houses as the most beautiful of the year.
What book do you need to read by the end of the year
I don’t really have an answer for this one either because I don’t really put a timeline on my books. I just get to them when I get to them. 🤷🏻♀️
Well, that’s all for the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag! Happy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day, if you celebrate. I hope you all have a good week!
