Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag

Hey guys! I am in the middle of some books right now. So, as a result of not having I a book review to post anytime in the near future, I decided to do a book tag! I found this book tag by Eden @Thrice Read, and let’s be honest they find the best book tags and I love seeing theirs and actually doing some of them. So without further ado here are my answers!

1. Best Book You’ve Read So Far.

Hmm…this is a hard one. Looking back through my lists I only gave three 5 star ratings this year! So then I’ll have to say Caraval by Stephanie Garber, Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer, and Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

2. Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far

I’ve actually only read one sequel so far this year, and I wasn’t impressed with it as I only gave it 2 stars. Sooo I guess since that was the only book I read it’ll have to do. icekissed

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

There are so many new releases that I want to get my hands on!! Some of them include Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab and Once and for All by Sarah Dessen.

4. Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2017

This definitely goes to Leigh Bardugo and her new book Wonder Woman: Warbringer!

5. Biggest Disappointment?

Hm…I would probably have to say Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer. I wasn’t very impressed with the art and the writing wasn’t the same caliber as with the series.

6. Biggest Surprise?

I normally don’t read bibliographies, but I found myself really enjoying Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham.

7. Favourite New Author

She isn’t new to the scene, but I discovered her for the first time this year! So my new favorite author is Susan Dennard! I absolutely loved Truthwitch and I can’t wait to read more books by her!

8. Newest Fictional Crush

Hm…this is a hard one. I don’t think I have one.

9. Newest Favourite Character

I really liked Scarlett Dragna from Caraval by Stephanie Garber.

10. Book That Made You Cry

There has been a few books that made me cry this year, but the one that made me cry the most was Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer. If you haven’t read this book yet, I definitely suggest you pick it up!

11. Book That Made You Happy

Hm…I don’t know if a book has ever left me feeling happy, but excited to read it? Sure. I guess if I had to choose one, I would choose Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter. The book as a whole didn’t make me happy, considering that it was a little confusing and kind of out there, but the way that it ended had a happy ending. Sooo…there’s that, I guess that counts.

12. Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You Saw This Year

I’ve only seen Before I Fall, but I haven’t had a chance to read the book yet.

13. Favourite Review You’ve Written This Year

I would probably say…my favorite review so far this year was for Truthwitch.

14. Most Beautiful Book You Bought So Far This Year?

Considering that I haven’t bought that many books this year, since I am on a ban, I’ll just have to go with Caraval

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

There is way too many books to list! A few of them though would have to be Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell, Metaltown by Kristin Simmons, and Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Goodreads Monday (7/3/2017)

Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Lauren @Page Turner,  and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!


This week I have chosen:

unhooked

Title: Unhooked

Author: Lisa Maxwell

Published: February 2nd 2016 by Simon Pulse

Goodreads Summary:

For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home—all because her mother believes that monsters are hunting them. Now these delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. The only saving grace is her best friend, Olivia, who’s coming with them for the summer.

But when Gwen and Olivia are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and taken to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey, Gwen realizes her mom might have been sane all along.

The world Gwen finds herself in is called Neverland, yet it’s nothing like the stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through her fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the roguish young pirate who promises to keep her safe.

With time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But will she be able to save Neverland without losing herself?

This has been on my TBR shelf for over a year, and I think it’s time I take it off this summer. At the end of the summer, my husband and I will be moving to a new house with our new baby girl and so I have started the packing process. The first room to get packed up? My part of the office. Meaning about 95% of my books are now in boxes and ready to be moved to the new place in a couple of months. With that being said, I left out about 10 or so books from my TBR shelf so that I would have to read them before moving. Unhooked made the cut, so hopefully I will actually start it pretty soon!

What is on your TBR shelf this week?

This is actually new to my TBR shelf, it came last week in my Book Outlet Black Friday haul! I am really excited to read this Peter Pan adaptation…Hopefully it’ll go better than the last one I read =/
