I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I saw this tag circulating and thought it would be fun to do! 😀
Best book you’ve read so far in 2016
(I wanted to put ACOMAF but…) Queen of Shadows, The Forgotten Girls and And I Darken were probably my favorite reads of the year (so far)! I think those are the only ones I actually gave 5-stars?
“Fire-breathing bitch queen”
Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2016
I didn’t even need to think about this one for a half-second. It is hands down, ACOMAF! This book was everything I wanted it to be, and has given me one of the biggest book hangovers!
New release you haven’t read but want to
As I was typing out my response to this cat. I realized there’s actually a lot of new releases this year that I haven’t read yet…fudge. Well, here’s a list!
- RUINED by Amy Tintera (I really liked her REBOOT series
- IVORY AND BONE by Julie Eshbaugh
- PASSENGER by Alexandra Bracken
- SUMMER DAYS AND SUMMER NIGHTS by Stephanie Perkins
….to name just a FEW, heh.
Most anticipated releases for the second half of the year
Okay, so this is one with A LOT of books too….so here’s another list!
- EMPIRE OF STORMS
- CRYSTAL STORMS (If you haven’t read the falling kingdoms series yet, please drop everything on your TBR and read these!!!)
- THE FEVER CODE
- A TOUCH AGAINST THE NIGHT
- CROOKED KINGDOM
If all of these could just come out now, that would be great!
Hmm, I think I’m going to have to put A Book of Spirits of Thieves, mainly because I haven’t been interested enough in this book to finish it? Which is disappointed as I love the Falling Kingdoms series by the same author..idk, maybe once I make myself read this book more, I’ll like it! But for now..yea, it’s somewhat of a disappointment.
Now, for books that I HAVE finished, I would say My Lady Jane. Mainly because I received this book through my Uppercase Box subscription… they’ve had some really great books, so given that I got this book in my one (and only, so far) subscription through them, I was a tad disappointed with it..just not quite my thing.
I had heard SO MANY things about the Throne of Glass series…so, all the way in January I decided to FINALLY given this series a read. OMG I wish I had read this series sooner…though on the other hand, I was able to then binge read most of the series so that was great. lol.
Favourite new author
Given some of my previous answers, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Sarah J Maas, is my favorite new author! 😀
Favourite new crush
….Who hasn’t read ACOMAF and now has a crush on RHYSAND. As quoted on bookstagram/tumblr, “There are no teams. There is only Rhysand!” haha
Favourite new characters
- Aelin and Dorian from Throne of Glass series
- Claire and Jamie from Outlander (okay, mainly from the tv series because I actually haven’t finished reading any of the books…oops)
- Feyre and Mor from ACOMAF
- Lada from And I Darken
A book that made you cry
…I actually don’t remember crying from any of my reads this year? However, I probably have! If I had to guess, I’d say I cried from one of the throne of glass books and from Lady Midnight…
A book that made you happy
Well I was happy to finally re-enter the Shadowhunter world after FOREVER with the release of Lady Midnight!
Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year
What books do you need to read before the end of the year?
ALL THE BOOKS. Haha, but for real, definitely Crystal Storms,and Empire of Storms.
I tag anyone who wants to do this tag to give it a try! 🙂
