Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Created by Chami @ ReadLikeWildfire and Ely @ Earl Grey Books

Everyone and their aunt has been doing this tag lately… I might as well do it too 😉

‣ Best book you’ve read so far in 2019?

Oh, my gosh, this was a hard one to answer. I don’t have a definitive favourite book of the year so far so I’m just going to mention one I loved that doesn’t fit into any of the other prompts.

The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter

‣ Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019?

Brave the Tempest (Cassie Palmer #9) by Karen Chance

‣ New release you haven’t read yet, but want to?

The Bride Test (Kiss Quotient #2) by Helen Hoang released May 7th, 2019.

‣ Most anticipated release for the second half of the year?

From the Grave (Arcana Chronicles #6) By Kresley Cole due for release August 2019 and I really really hope that doesn’t change! I’ve been burned before by release dates changing just a few weeks beforehand.

‣ Biggest disappointment?

Biting Cold (Chicagoland Vampires #6) by Chloe Neil

‣ Biggest surprise?

Real Murders (Aurora Teagarden #1) by Charlaine Harris

‣ Favourite new author (debut or new to you)?

Helen Hoang. It might be a bit presumptuous to choose her for this since I’ve only read The Kiss Quotient but I really loved that book!

The Kiss Quotient is available on Kindle Unlimited

‣ Newest fictional crush?

I actually had very few new crush potentials to choose from this since a lot of my books were continuations in series. I decided to go with Duane Winston from Truth or Beard (Winston Brothers #1) by Penny Reid.

‣ Newest favourite character?

OK, she’s not really new but she is my favourite so far this year and that is Cassie Palmer from Karen Chance’s Cassie Palmer series.

‣ Book that made you cry?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. This was a reread but it still brought a tear to my eye.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is available on Kindle Unlimited

‣ Book that made you happy?

I’m delighted to say most of the books I read made me happy 😄 Truth and Beard by Penny Reid actually had me giggling though.

‣ Most beautiful book you’ve acquired this year?

I haven’t bought any pretty books this year which I will have to rectify before December. I’ve gotten a lot of second-hand paperbacks and none of them will be winning any beauty contests but they’re in good condition.

‣ What book(s) do you need to read by the end of the year?

I really need to make a dent in the pile of books I’ve bought this year and I need to catch up with romanceopoly.

‣ Favourite bookish community member?

This is so hard to answer! There are so many bloggers, BookTubers and Bookstagrammers I love and I’d hate to hurt someones feelings by forgetting to mention them.

Instead why don’t you share your blog, Bookstagram or BookTube in the comments for everyone to check out.
