I always want to do this tag, but I just never do it because by the time I want to it’s already August or September. I know it’s a bit early, but better now than never.
- best book you’ve read so far in 2017
I can’t pick just one so I’m gonna go with I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga and It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini.
- best sequel you’ve read so far in 2017
I’m picking Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. I started the Shatter Me series.
- a new release you haven’t read yet, but want to
I want to read Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. I love Cassie Clare and love all her books, but I haven’t had a chance to pick this one up.
- Most anticipated release of the second half of the year
The sequel to This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab, it’s called Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab
- Biggest disappointment
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I felt that the book really glorified suicide and I didn’t enjoy it at all
- Biggest Surprise
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth. I didn’t enjoy the divergent series as much as I would’ve liked, but I LOVED this book.
- Favorite new Author (debut or new to you)
Tamara Ireland Stone. I read Every Last Word, and I loved it and I loved her writing style.
- Newest Fictional Crush
Rafe, from The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
- Newest Favorite Fictional Character
I really enjoyed Cia and Tomas from The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. I felt that they were very strong and developed characters and it made the book very interesting.
- Books that made me cry
I cry everytime I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling. But recently, Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone made me very emotional.
- Books that made you happy
It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini made me really happy because it was a mental health novel that really showed the positive aspect of mental hospitals and that really hit home to me.
- Most beautiful book you bought this year
Based on the covers, all of the Shatter Me series books had really pretty covers.
- What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
I don’t really have an answer, because I don’t want to force myself to read specific books by a certain time period (other than school books).
