The Mid Year Freak Out Tag!
This is the Mid Year Freak-out Book Tag! This is a Tag I got off Youtube.com. I watched Kassidy Voinche’s video so along with the original tag video, I will also link hers below! I hope everyone participates in this tag, I definitely enjoyed doing it 🙂
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2015 – Shine Not Burn by Elle Casey This is a book I instantly fell in love with. It was light, fun, and the characters were great!
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2015.
Honestly I haven’t read very many sequels this year. A lot of my books have been packed up in storage… But… I did read:If your into the NA and more steamy books, definitely check this series out. I haven’t read too many YA books this year, just because Last year, I got really burnt on them. But as soon as I get my books out I definitely plan on catching up with YA series.
3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to.
If we’re being honest, I haven’t read any of the books I have been anticipating this year, but one that I really want to is:
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
I am waiting VERY patiently for this release. It is one Im hoping that I buy and actually read right then! I have a problem with buying books and just letting them pile up on my TBR shelf
5. Biggest disappointment.
I felt utterly betrayed by this cover.
6. Biggest surprise.
I have been reading a lot of NA and I love this genre, but honestly there aren’t too many surprises in this genre. Woman (whether in college or not) is figuring herself and life out, handsome billionaire/ or college boy comes along, lots of drama, shit gets crazy, wild hot scenes, life gets in the way, boy or girl pushes the other away, they get their shit together, boom HEA. Seriously not too much surprise.
Ooooh I lied, I have a REALLY good one for this:
This book is SO underrated, but soooo good. If I could compare it to a book, it would be Gone Girl, but better. Not knocking Gone Girl, but I felt there were times that it drug along. Nope this book had me on my toes the whole time, and no spoilers, but that ending….. Holy bat-mobile, it came from left field!
7. Favourite new author. (Debut or new to you)
I’m trying to keep this diverse, but I am going to add in Elle Casey, but another debut author I enjoyed was:
This isn’t the best book EVER written, but it was cute and it pulled me out of my reading slump. I believe this is Gina Ciocca’s first novel.
8. Newest fictional crush.
Shep Prescott from:
He is egotistical, he is an ass, but he is reedemable, and one that has stuck with me.
9. Newest favourite character.
Easyyyyy Candice from:
Candice is a big goofball and sort of a ding bat, but I love her.
10. Book that made you cry.
Any Christina Lauren book can make me happy!
12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year.
Only one I have seen is Insurgent and I actually enjoyed it! (I did not read the divergent series, I was waiting for the hype of the books to calm down and all 3 books to be out, then BAM my friend told me what happened and, I decided I wasn’t going to get involved)
13. Favourite review you’ve written this year. (Booktube version: Favourite video you have done so far in this year)
Ummm Probably This one here. It is Elle Casey’s Shine Not Burn… I realized I’ve read like 60 books this year, but Im seriously slacking in the review department.
14. Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)
It isn’t a new release, but it was bought for me this year, and its GORGEOUS!
soooo many… I have so many goals. I haven’t read the Throne of Glass series, Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes, Finishing the Percy Jackson series, Vampire Academy series, angel Falls series, Cruel Beauty, Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey, I had a goal to read the Harry Potter Series, Just so many. I buy too many books. I really need to calm down before I can’t read what I already own.
That’s the Mid-year Freak Out Tag! If you have read any of these books or recommend that I read any of the books I mentioned, comment below and let me know your thoughts!
