Welcome to my newest book tag, in which I basically just recap all of my feelings for all the books I’ve read this year.
I was tagged by the lovely Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall! Thanks again for tagging me, Kelly! 🙂 And if you haven’t seen Kelly’s blog yet, then what are you doing? Go check out her wonderful blog!
Best Book You’ve Read This Year
Um, what kind of question is this? No one is ever allowed to ask me what my favorite book is, because there are just too many to choose from and I don’t want any of them to be left out!
I’m also very indecisive and I can’t choose anything for any reason!
But, for the sake of this question, I will be generous and give an answer.
I really enjoyed Strange the Dreamer. It was a fantasy involving books and myths, and magic and dreams. Something about it was so interesting and nice, and I’m sure I’ll read it again! You can read my review here.
Best Sequel You’ve Read in 2019
I haven’t read very many sequels this year, but I really enjoyed Gemina!
While I don’t think I liked it quite as much as Illuminae, I still really like it, and I can’t wait to read the last book! You can read my review here.
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To?
*adds basically everything from my TBR*
The first things that came to my mind was Sorcery of Thorns! Although, there are plenty of new releases I haven’t read yet. 😅
Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half Of The Year?
For some reason, I feel like I’ve invested so much of my life into this series, but truth be told, I’ve only been reading it for less than a year! Still, I am very excited to read The Queen of Nothing.
??? I only read good books, so they will never disappoint me!
But I will say that I have been slightly disappointed a few times this year.
Hopefully I’ll be able to write a proper review for this one, but just know that The Vanishing Stair was probably one of the worst books I’ve read this year. It wasn’t bad! But it was just my least favorite, and I personally think it was worse than the first book.
What disappointed me the most was that there wasn’t much plot development, compared to the first one. For the first half of the book, I felt like nothing had happened yet. And that’s not exactly a good quality for a book to have!
Okay, Broken Things just wasn’t my cup of tea. I wanted a good murder mystery, and instead, I got a slow confusing mess.
I… I don’t think I’ve been surprised by anything? Most books I read usually meet my expectations, so that’s good!
But if I had to choose a book for this category…
I honestly thought I was going to hate Carry On with a passion. But I didn’t!
It was funny and amusing, once I got past all of the strange parallels with Harry Potter.
Newest Fictional Crush?
Again, ??? I haven’t been keeping track of this!
But I guess, um… *scrolls through Goodreads* I guess I have to choose one.
Lazlo Strange from Strange the Dreamer, I suppose.
I choose Lazlo because he’s very much like me, and I just love him so much. He’s gentle, kind, and he absolutely loves books. What’s not to love?
This also isn’t new, but I really enjoy reading about Cardan and The Wicked King in general, and okay that’s enough, no more questions, goodnight.
Book That Made You Cry?
I don’t think… I don’t think I’ve really cried very much this year?
I definitely cried while rereading Challenger Deep, even though I already knew what was going to happen. I’m a huge crier, what can I say.
I also cried while reading Gemina, because it was good, and I’m emotional.
Book That Made You Happy?
All of them? Reading makes me happy!
I will say that A Thousand Perfect Notes made me happy that I finally read it! It was very worth it!
Favorite Book-To-Film Adaptation?
How many Book-To-Film Adaptations have come out this year? I don’t think I’ve seen any of them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Favorite Post You Have Done This Year?
All of my posts are my babies, and I refuse to choose just one of them.
So once again, I’m going to choose a few!
One of the first posts I made this year was the annoucement of this creation! After reading The Wicked King, I was surprised that no one had made a Folk of the Air book tag, so I created it myself!
This was one of my favorite posts to write! It was interesting, and I even made myself laugh. I loved this post so much!
I wrote a post about what an amazing Percy Jackson show would need to include, and I loved writing it! I also wouldn’t mind if this post fell into the hands of whoever may produce a Percy Jackson TV show. Please and thank you.
I really enjoyed making a post about things I wish I had know when I started blogging! I’m also planning on making a Part II soon, so look out for that! 😉
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year?
This is hard. I’ll try to choose a good one!
I’m not sure how much I’m ready to read The Storm Crow, but the book itself is stunning.
I’m not going to tag anyone, since it’s already way past the mid-year mark! But feel free to do it, too!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Do you agree with my statements? Is it also hard for you to choose just one book for each category?
Chat with me about it!
Happy reading, everyone! 🙂
