I wasn’t tagged to do this but oh well because it’s fun and won’t be mid-year much longer!
Best Book You’ve Read So Far this Year
Oh gosh, this is hard because I’ve read and loved so many books this year. But I think it would be Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! Everybody loves this book so I was a little hesitant but omg it not only lived up to the hype, it exceeded it!
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2016
Obviously, this has to be A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas! I LOVE THIS BOOK. It was so so so much better than A Court of Thorns and Roses and just way better than I was expecting.
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To
I’ve been wanting to get The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan since I read Percy Jackson but I just haven’t had a chance yet, though I am so excited for it and will definitely be picking it up soon.
Most Anticipated Releases For 2016 Part 2
There are so many great books coming out in the rest of the year but my absolute top two are Empire of Storms and Crooked Kingdom!
I think the biggest disappointing read for 2016 for me is The Crown by Kiera Cass. I did enjoy it but I thought it was really rushed and anticlimactic. I was expecting a bit more.
Snow Like Ashes! I put this off for ages because I was worried it was going to be high fantasy but when I picked it up I was so surprised to see it had so much romance! The world wasn’t overly complicated but was still interesting and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would!
Favourite New Author
I think I’m going to pick Kasie West. I was honestly so surprised by the Pivot Point duology and how much I loved it! It was 10x better than I was expecting and I’m really excited to pick up her other novels.
Favourite New Crush
I’m going to cheat and pick two for this: Rhysand from A Court of Mist and Fury and Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows. I love these two beautiful specimens so so so much and I can’t wait to see more of them in their respective sequels!
Favourite New Characters
I am going with ALL the characters from Harry Potter. I LOVE THIS SERIES, it’s my new all time favourite and I absolutely adore all the characters in it, especially Neville, Hermione, Lupin, Sirius and, of course, the trio!
Book that Made You Cry
Forbidden by Tabitha Sazuma BROKE MY HEART and had me bawling my eyes out. I had to put the book down for a little bit so I could get all my feelings under control.
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought So Far this Year
I think Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton and The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater both have absolutely stunning covers and I like to stare at them a lot.
What Books do You Need to Read Before the End of the Year?
I have so so so many books I need and want to pick up before the end of the year. But my top 3 must reads are The Diviners by Libba Bray, Red Rising by Pierce Brown and Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. I’ve been putting all these books off for a pretty long time but I want to get to them before the year is up!
