It’s another Tag Tuesday! Thank you very much to the Orangutan Librarian for the tag! I’m sure you all know her by now, but if not, check out her blog! I’m really behind on tags, but it makes sense to do this one now, at the mid year.
BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ YET IN 2018
I’ve been lucky enough to read a ton of amazing books so far in 2018, but I think I have to say my favourite was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’ve recommended this book to EVERYONE.
BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2016
The only sequel I’ve read is A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab, which was a great ending to the series.
NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT WANT TO
Honestly, I don’t even know what’s been released in 2018 and what I’m just behind on reading.
MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR
I’m stealing Orangutan’s answer for this one, but Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor! I’m so excited!!
I don’t think I’ve been disappointed by any of the books I’ve read! The lowest rating I’ve given this year was 3 stars to A Conjuring of Light, but I wasn’t disappointed in it. It was more just too long.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I was expecting to like this book, but not love it as much as I did. It’s honestly the best fantasy I’ve read in a while (hence why I’m so excited for the Muse of Nightmares!).
FAVOURITE NEW AUTHOR
So many!! Taylor Jenkins Reid, Kazuo Ishiguro, Laini Taylor, and Celeste Ng.
NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH
I don’t really have fictional crushes? idk I just find it hard to crush on fictional characters lol
NEWEST FAVOURITE CHARACTER
Sarai from Strange the Dreamer and Evelyn Hugo from Evelyn Hugo both stand out to me.
BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys for sure. That ENDING.
BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
Looking at the books I’ve read, they’ve all been super heavy books lol. They all made me happy in how good they were, but I haven’t really read any light-hearted contemporaries lately.
FAVOURITE BOOK TO FILM ADAPTATION
I don’t think I’ve seen any lately? OH WAIT I watched The Kissing Booth on Netflix recently, which was definitely very adorable. I haven’t read the book though, so I can’t compare them. But if you want a great summer movie, I definitely recommend the Kissing Booth!
FAVOURITE POST YOU HAVE DONE THIS YEAR
I really liked the recent Top 5 Tuesday of books with red, orange, and yellow, because lots of people complimented me on my cover choices
(need that validation) and it became my second most liked post. I also really liked discussion of settings I want to see more of and discussion on judging people because of books.
MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT THIS YEAR
I didn’t buy any of these (they were gifted or I won them), but these are definitely my favourite:
WHAT BOOKS DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR
SO MANY. See my physical TBR post here.
Thank you again to the wonderful Orangutan Librarian for the tag! This tag is always a lot of fun!
