Since I see absolutely everyone doing this tag, I guess I’ll do it too. I will link the two creators here and here.
Now that I am finally on Summer Vacation I promise I will actually have more content up for you guys. My next post will either be my June Wrap Up because I actually have one for June, or it'll be a Top 5 Wednesday. Pinky Swear.
1 - THE BEST BOOK YOU'VE READ SO FAR IN 2018
Wolfsong by T. J. Klune. I can’t even describe how much I loved this book. It's full of magic and emotion and it's extremely gay and I love it.
2 - YOUR FAVOURITE SEQUEL THIS YEAR
Leah on the Offbeat was by far the best I’ve read this year. I mean there are some others that are pretty good but this was my favorite.
3 - A NEW RELEASE THAT YOU HAVEN'T READ BUT YOU REALLY WANT TO
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas. I preordered this book, it came in the mail, I read the first five pages, then I put it down and started reading other books.
4 - MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR
This is a three-way tie between the Darkest Star by Jennifer L Armentrout, Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas, and Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare. I have all three preordered and I want them all in my hands right this minute.
5 - YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT
Burn Before Reading Sara Wolf. Sara Wolf is one of my favorite authors and I expected so much more from this book. It just fell very flat for me.
6 - BIGGEST SURPRISE OF THE YEAR
Lover Enshrined by J. R. Ward. I put off reading this book for years and then I read it and loved it. I didn't expect much because when I looked at reviews the general consensus was that it wasn't as good as the others, but I wholeheartedly disagree.
7 - FAVOURITE NEW TO YOU OR DEBUT AUTHOR
Samantha Shannon. I read the Bone Season and fell in love. It was so well written and I can't wait to read the next installment.
8 - YOUR NEW FICTIONAL CRUSH
This was so hard because the older I get the harder it is for my book boyfriends to win me over. That's why I talk about all the same ones over and over again. However, if I had to choose one it would be Audric from Furyborn. I don't know what it is about him, but I feel like he's very Gryffindor and he's actually good and perfectly combats Rielle's anger.
9 - NEW FAVOURITE CHARACTER
Rielle from Furyborn. I tried my best to not have any books repeating, but I honestly had to choose Rielle because although I know her future and what she does, I can't help but relate with her more than any of the other characters.
10 - A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
It Ends With Us because this was such a heartwrenching book. This is one of those books you have to go in knowing nothing about. Don't read the reviews, don't look at the tags, don't read any comments, just go out and read it.
11 - A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
Last Summer of the Garrett Girls, it was just such a short fun book about four sisters. I myself have a sister and I can say that I made a connection with it because it did remind me of my sister.
12 - YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION THAT YOU'VE SEEN THIS YEAR
Love, Simon because even though it wasn’t a perfect adaptation to the book it was still pretty fucking good and it meant so much to so many people so I could never say a bad thing about it.
13 - FAVOURITE BLOG POST YOU'VE PUBLISHED THIS YEAR
After perusing my blog posts I decided on a book tag that I created called The End book tag. I just had such a good time creating it and I was so proud of myself because I had never seen anything like it that I know of. The post itself didn't do as well as I had hoped but I had a fun time making it.
14 - THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU HAVE BOUGHT/RECEIVED THIS YEAR
The Cruel Prince because wow. If you take off the dust jacket there is the most beautiful imprint on the book.
15 - WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BOOKS THAT YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR?
Honestly, just look at question 4. Those are the books I for sure need to read this year. Plus It by Stephen King.
Also, if you were not already aware, I have a mid yeaar favorite giveaway happening on my blog! Anyone can enter I'll leave a link for you to check out here.
