The Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag 2019

I’m getting this done a bit later than anticipated, but that’s ok. I’ve made it through 41 books so far this year, a decent amount of which have been backlist reads. I’m only going to let myself use ONE book for each answer to keep things spicy, and I’m not allowed to reuse answers.

Best book you’ve read so far

Normal People, thanks to the Women’s Prize & Sally Rooney!

Best sequel so far

Squire by Tamora Pierce!

New release you haven’t read but want to

There are loads, but the most anticipated I have yet to read (that has already been published) is The Wise and the Wicked by Rebecca Podos!

Most anticipated release in the second half of 2019

This was tough, but I probably have to go with the upcoming Joe Hill short story collection!

Biggest disappointment

Thankfully I’ve been pretty blessed as far as reading goes this year, but I’ll have to go with An American Marriage for this.

Biggest surprise

Probably If, Then which I did expect to enjoy, just not as much as I did!

Favorite new author

Becky Chambers! After The Long Way, I’m excited to read more of her work.

Newest fictional crush

To quote Rachel, pass pls.

Newest favorite character

Probably Henry or Alex from RW&RB!

A book that made you cry

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. Oof.

A book that made you happy

I don’t read many happy books oops. We’ll go with Merry Inkmas.

Favorite book to movie adaptation

I haven’t actually watched any this year??

Favorite review

Probably in part due to recency bias, I’ll pick Evicted.

Most beautiful book bought/received

Probably the copy of Waking Gods I bought last weekend.

Books you need to read by the end of the year

The list pretty much never ends!
