It’s that time of year again! We’re almost halfway through 2018 and it’s time to do a roundup of where we are in our reading adventure. I’ve cruised through 40 books so far (out of a goal of 75) and am unbelievably proud of myself. June is going well so far, and I hope to have a great second half of 2018.
Best book you’ve read so far.
Best sequel so far.
Definitely Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo!
New release you haven’t read but want to.
Most anticipated release in the second half of 2018.
Probably Wildcard by Marie Lu.
St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves. I was sooo looking forward to more Karen Russell and it was a letdown.
Annihilation, which I expected to be good, but not to become one of my new favorite books.
Favorite new author.
Paul Tremblay or Jeff VanderMeer.
Newest fictional crush.
I don’t remember, they’re all so fleeting.
Newest favorite character.
Borne from Borne!
A book that made you cry.
I don’t really cry while reading, I don’t think anything has made me cry this year.
A book that made you happy.
Apparently I don’t read many happy books. Probably Emergency Contact.
Favorite book to movie adaptation.
Ummm, I honestly don’t know.
This feels braggy, if it’s supposed to be mine. Also I really just don’t have one!
Most beautiful book bought/received.
Again, Ask Me About My Uterus. I adore that cover.
Books you need to read by the end of the year.
I don’t have a set list, besides ARCs.
Anyway, how are y’all feeling about this year? I think it’s been an ok first half of the year as far as reading quality goes, but I hope I find some more new favorites in the second half of this year! I’m not tagging anyone, but please do this if you’d like to. 🙂
