Mid-Year Freak Out Tag

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag.png

Hey! Today I have the Mid-Year Freak Out Tag. I wasn’t tagged for this but I’ve been wanting to do it for a while now.

1) Best books you’ve read so far in 2017?

This may take a while as I’ve read over 50 books so far this year. I have to say Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones is up there, along with Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles by Julie Sullivan, The Path Keeper by Natali Simmonds. There are more but too many to list.

2) Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2017?

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo and Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

3) New release you haven’t read yet but want to?

Our Dark Duet by V.E Schwab

4) Most anticipated release in the 2nd half of the year?

Tower Of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas. Throne of Glass is one of my all time favourite series.

5) Biggest disappointment

Oh now, this is a hard one. I would have to say A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. I had a difficult start to the series and didn’t overly enjoy the 1st book, the 2nd however, changed everything and I really enjoyed it. I had such high expectations for the 3rd book and while it was good I don’t feel it was as good as th 2nd book.

6) Biggest surprise

There are a few in this category as well. I’m not usually a fan of soppy romances but some that I have read for review have had me really surprised at just hw much I have enjoyed them. The Queen of New Beginnings by Therese Lorskar is one in particular.

7) Fav new author

8) Fav new crush

S. Jae-Jones, for bringing a warm magic back into my life with Wintersong.

9) Fav new characters

The Goblin-King from Wintersong, Rowan from Heir of Fire, Calaena as Aelin from Heir of Fire.

10) Book that made you cry

Crooked Kingdom made me cry like a baby, I am still not over it.

11) Book that made you happy

A Court of Wings and Ruin, for not killing Rhysand.

12) Most beautiful book you’ve bought this year

Wintersong by S Jae-Jones and Caraval by Stephanie Gaber

13) What books do you need to read before the end of the year

Way too many. Between reviewing and beta reading I rarely get the chance to read for myself so my tbr pile is currently huge. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the Throne of Glass series, Our Dark Duet, Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent and Wicked Lovely by Marissa Marr.

  1. Thanks for the tag.

    Some fab responses. Definitely agree with Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles.

    I’m hoping one day I might actually find time to give the Throne of Glass series a try. I think I’ve got the first one on my kindle so I’m part way there x


  2. I don’t think I will ever read that many, although used to at uni (before I had a pc, lol). I have read 7 this year, so am on track for my target of 12 in a year xx
