Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag

This is a tag I’ve seen quite a few times, and have enjoyed reading so I thought I’d give it a go! I last saw it on Lucy’s Novel Purpose, and she tagged anyone who wanted to give it a go, so I considered myself tagged. Thank you to whoever created this tag!

What is the best book that you’ve read so far in 2019?

I’ve been really lucky this year with my reading choices as I’ve really enjoyed so many of the books I’ve read. I’m going to opt for one of my more recent reads which really had me so hooked that I carried it with me all day so could take any opportunity to read it!

What has been your favourite sequel of the first half of the year?

My absolute standout sequel was one that I read immediately after the first book in the series as I loved the first so much. The first book is Begone the Raggedy Witches and the second …

Is there a new release that you haven’t read yet but you’re really excited to?

This was hard, as I have bought lots of new releases, all of which I’m looking forward to reading. I found this one today and, after reading the blurb, just had to get it.

What is your most anticipated release for the second half of the year?

I loved books inspired by folklore, so know I will love this one …

What is your biggest disappointment so far?

This many seem like a cop-out, but I really have loved all the books I’ve read this year. I’ve read outside my preferred genre (fantasy) and have actually been surprised by how much I enjoyed other genres.

What is your biggest surprise so far?

As I’ve said, the majority of my reading is within fantasy, so I’ve chosen one outside fantasy which I loved more than I thought, especially considering I have absolutely no understanding of chess!

Who is your fictional crush from this year?

I’ve taken ‘crush’ to be a character I would love to have in my life and, in this case, it’s someone who lives under the bed or in a green carpetbag! I’m talking about Oswin, the kobold who is suspiciously like a cat!

Who is your new favourite character?

I’d have to choose the most brilliantly named, Utterly Thankless, who is a quick-witted rule-breaker with a penchant for recklessness who took me on one of the most spell-binding adventures this year!

A book that made you cry?

A few books have made me cry this year, but the one that made me cry the most was this one …

A book that made you happy?

This book made me happy for a couple of reasons. It is the first physical ARC I’ve received from a publisher, and the main character is an adorable dog!

Your favourite book to movie/tv show that you’ve seen so far?

I’m going to do this the other way round. One of my favourite shows of all time is Firefly, so I was really pleased to find this …

What is the most beautiful book that you have bought?

The book with the most beautiful cover I’ve bought …

What is your favourite post that you have written so far this year?

I just starting blogging in April of this year and I can honestly say I’ve loved the whole experience. I didn’t realise that blogging could be more than just posting reviews, so I guess my favourite post is the first book tag I did: #SixforSunday (hosted by A Little But a Lot): 2019 Books I want to read!

What are 6 books that you want to read by the end of the year?

I have far too many middle-grade books I want to read, so I can’t possibly choose. I’m going to choose six from other books I have in my TBR which I want to read.

I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you want to have a go, you’re tagged!

  1. Wildspark sounds cool! And that’s so cool about the novelisation of firefly- I love that show, so definitely want to check it out. And that cover of whichwood is really beautiful. I really need to read children of blood and bone as well. Awesome answers!
