Hi everybody! How are we halfway through the year already? I could have sworn New Year’s Day was just like yesterday. But oh well, that also means it’s almost time for all that fall magic. You know, after that summer magic anyway 🙂
Luckily I got quite some reading in already (my count is currently at 45 books completed, which is just 5 books away from my yearly reading goal). So basically, it’s the perfect time to do this quick and fun Mid Year Book Freakout Tag!
Let’s get started!
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2021.
I read a few amazing books this year so far, but honestly this one is my absolute favorite. It was an enjoyable and emotional read, it was empowering and epic and unputdownable.
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2021.
I love Annette Marie books. I love the Guild Codex universe. And I love Kit. His second book read like an action-movie, but with the best kind of humor.
3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to.
I heard nothing but good things, so I hope to dive into this one soon.
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
A medieval Venom starring a nun and a ghost… by Margaret Rogerson. I MEAN YES PLEASE!
5. Biggest disappointment.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but then book 2 just fell kind of flat.
6. Biggest surprise.
I know this is a hugely popular book, but I honestly wasn’t expecting it to be so addictively readable, so that’s why it was a surprise. I was hooked from the first chapter and finished this entire book in a single day.
7. Favourite new author. (Debut or new to you)
Hello my latest obsession. Welcome, it’s fun around here and you can hang out with all my other obsessions!
8. Newest fictional crush.
Ah, I’m in love with a certain horny commander (I mean that he has horns, jeez!)
9. Newest favourite character.
Gotta love Des, my fave winged king of Night. Not to confuse with my other fave winged king of Night… guess I have a type.
10. Book that made you cry.
During this specific scene, I was full on sobbing in my car while listening to the audiobook. Would not recommend for safety reasons.
11. Book that made you happy.
Some books just feel like smiles and sunshine and that’s exactly what this book felt like to me.
12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year.
Not a film, but 2021 so far has been the year of Shadow and Bone. I adored this adaptation so much.
13. Favourite review you’ve written this year.
Hmm, technically this is a mix of a series review and a Top Ten Tuesday post, but I love when I get to gush about one specific series, so I’m going for my post with 10 Reasons Why I Love The Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost
14. Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)
A few weeks ago, we did a Bookish Wishes post and I received a physical copy of Red, White and Royal Blue from Laura at Literacious and it’s made me so happy!
15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
Sooo many, but just a few:
