Mid-Year Freak Out Tag {and my desperation}


I wanted to do this tag, but forgot about it since I wasn’t tagged, but Kelly and Lily (thank you both ❤ ❤ ) read my mind and tagged me! (How many times can I say tag ?) So let me stop rambling and get to it:

1. Best Book You’ve Read This Year?

the poet x elizabeth acevedo

Can I pick more than one?

My last favorite book was The Poet X, which I read back in February… I talk about this one a lot on Twitter, but IT’S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BOOK.

Review: The Poet X

2. Best Sequel You’ve Read in 2018?

latchkey by nicole kornher stace

Latchkey by Nicole Kornher-Stace; I have been waiting for a sequel for two years… and it was great… and now I’m begging for a third book because I’m a greedy leech.

Review: Archivist Wasp { Archivist Wasp Saga #1 }; Latchkey { Archivist Wasp Saga #2 }

3. New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To?

anger is a gift by mark oshiro

Anger is a Gift.. I won this one in a Twitter giveaway and have been SO NERVOUS to actually read it… because I know there will be tears… and I’m not mentally prepared.

5. Biggest Disappointment?

from twinkle with love sandhya menon

My last DNFed book, From Twinkle, With Love was… not fun? Which sucks, because I proclaimed the author as my go to Contemporary Romance author after When Dimple Met Rishi…

Review: From Twinkle, With Love

6. Biggest Surprise?

not your sidekick by cb lee

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee surprised the HELL out of me. I’m not exaggerating when I say I was squealing with joy at 10 o’ clock at night because ALL OF THE FEELS.

Review: Not Your Sidekick { Sidekick Squad #1 }

7. Favorite New To You Or Debut Author?

lets talk about love claire kann

Claire Kann. Because after Let’s Talk About Love, I will read anything she writes.

Review: Let’s Talk About Love

8. Newest Fictional Crush?

saga vol.2 brian k vaughan

We all know how hard it is to become a fiction crush over here (Lazlo will stay #1 ALWAYS)… But Marko from Saga is creeping his way there… The loyalty. The sweetness. The swoon.

Review: Saga Vol. 1; Saga Vol. 2

9. Newest Favorite Character?

Lula - Bruja Born

Click picture for original post.

Lula from Bruja Born. I knew she was the one from the first book ❤ . I just connect with her a lot more than I thought I would? WHICH IS GREAT.

Review: Labyrinth Lost { Brooklyn Brujas #1 }; Bruja Born { Brooklyn Brujas #2 }

10. Book That Made You Cry?

when my heart joins the thousand aj stieger

There were only two books that made me cry this year and since I already used one for the first question, my second choice is When My Heart Joins the Thousand. Another book I mention often and everyone should read it because IT’S ONE OF THE CUTEST ROMANCE I HAVE READ.

Review: When My Heart Joins the Thousand

11. Book That Made You Happy?

how we roll by natasha friend

How We Roll by Natasha Friend. Female friendships FTW.

Review: How We Roll

12. Favorite Book-To-Film Adaptation?

Here’s the thing: I don’t really watch movies like that… so I haven’t seen any book to movie adaptations this year (and I REFUSE to see Love, Simon until I read the book #sorrynotsorry).

13. Favorite Post You Have Done This Year?

14. Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year?

circe madeline miller

Circe by Madeline Miller. I haven’t been buying a lot of books lately, most of the books I’ve read are either library e-books or E-ARC’s… and my brain goes to I’ve already read it, so I can wait on buying it… But I HAD to buy Circe because it would not leave my brain, it was really good.

Review: Circe

15. What Books Do You Need To Read By The End of the Year?

Can I make a list?? Because it’s a lot???

I won’t do that to you all… because it really is TOO MANY.

Guess who I’m tagging…?

You don’t have to do this tag, no hard feelings at all 😉

The thing with this tag is I have been screaming about all of my favorites throughout the year… so this was an ample opportunity to do it some more 😀 .

Talk to Me

Let me know if you did the tag (and if any of these are your faves 😉 ), I’d love to see your answers!

  4. ahh thank you so so much for the tag! also this is super late, I’m the worst and I need to stop being dead on the blogosphere </3 but ya know, I'll probably end up posting this bc the tag is one of my faves, even though it's technically not the middle of the year :')

    okay so I have been meaning to read the Strange the Dreamer series and Circe for…. forever, I've heard such wonderful things about it! (and both Circe and MoN have such gorgeous covers; I'm honestly in awe)

    Not Your Sidekick sounds amazing, btw! I just checked it out on GR and wow how have I never heard of this before?? <33
