I know, I know, I’m late to the party, but the party looked so good I couldn’t not come! Can we just call me, fashionably late? This is my first year of really not being in a reading slump and reading more than 10 books and I’ve been loving every minute of it, so I wanted to mark that occasion with this tag! So let’s go!
BEST BOOK I’VE READ SO FAR?
This was hard, i find I love a book, but then when I have to pick my ‘favourites’ none of them feel good enough for that title? so here’s my two ‘favourites’
BEST SEQUEL I’VE READ SO FAR?
I haven’t read that many sequels, but I decided the one that made me cry and laugh the most was the one I should count as ‘the best’
NEW RELEASE I HAVEN’T GOTTEN TO YET, BUT I WANT TO?
Well, the joys of working with publishers is that often, I get to read those new releases before they come out! buttttttt I am trash for Cassandra Clare so ofcourse it would be this book (I’m counting this as a new release since it’s sequel is only a few months old and I need to read this first) and a second for fun!
- Lady midnight
- Lord of Shadows
MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE
oh boy, I am highly anticipating a few books so here goes
- Cruel Prince
- An Enchantment of Ravens
This book, just wow. This was the second book in all my life that I just couldn’t handle to continue, it had some really gross aspects (insect and stalking/rape) so I just put this book down & said goodbye
This is the biggest surprise in two ways! One. I didn’t request it or buy it, I was given it by the publicity worker for harpercollinsnz and I ended up LOVING it so much
FAVOURITE NEW AUTHOR
I’m…….. almost ashamed by the fact I own this many Cassandra Clare books…. And I plan to buy all the rest…… and I may, be considering buying the other covers….. (I own these, and the first three TMI books in the colourful editions)
Oh no……… yeah it’s Warner, I was trying not to do duplicates here so I went with Warner from Shatter me, but Jace or Will from TMI/TID would count here too
This…… this was too hard, but I’ll do a duplicate and say, either Juliette from Shatter Me, or Jace or Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments
BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY?
I am, still emotional over this, I wasn’t even halfway through this book and I was crying like a baby, when bad things happen to my favourite characters in a book, I get emotional, and I blame Cassandra Clare for never letting us have a happy ending.
MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BROUGHT THIS YEAR
Can we just pause and appreciate these beautiful covers for a minute, the harry potter series is dear to me and these covers made it seem, less childish? I’m not sure exactly, but they were the ones to catch my eye.
So thats it! That’s my Mid year book freak out! I think I might do this again in December, to see if my choices would still be the same, or if I would’ve changed my mind with another 40 or so books read by then.
Until next time,
