Soooo I’m doing this super late, but I’m off sick (UGH) from uni this week so I thought I’d do it! I did this tag last year and I wasn’t tagged for it this year, but I’m doing it anyway! This tag was created by Chami @ Read Like Wildfire and Ely Jayne @ Earl Grey Books
Unfortunately, I’ve had to change my reading goal SO MANY TIMES this year. I am constantly falling behind because I haven’t been able to make much time for reading. But I am hoping to beat my goal by the end of this year!
Best Book You’ve Read so Far in 2017
So this is a lot more than one but honestly all of these were AMAZING. I do think ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS is my favourite so far, followed super close by WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI.
Best Sequel You’ve Read so Far this Year
Hands. Down. This was AMAZING, I LOVED it and I have no idea how I’m going to wait until 2019 for the next book.
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet but Want To
I’ve been pretty good at staying on top of new releases but I REALLY want to get to these three soon!
Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year
There are a few more books coming out in the second half of the year that I’m excited for, but these three are at the top of my list!
Ahhhh I was so let down by all of these books. LOVE, LUCAS was so cliche to me and I just was not interested in the characters or plot at all. I had heard amazing things about THE DIVINERS so I was super excited to pick it up but it really let me down. It was good but it wasn’t great. I have to admit that I much preferred the movie adaptation of THE REVISED FUNDAMENTALS OF CAREGIVING. There were so many things about this book that aggravated me which sucks cause I love the movie.
I was really surprised by these two books! I had heard some negative things about BEFORE I FALL so I was hesitant going in, but it ended up being so much better than I expected! THE PROBABILITY OF MIRACLES was also surprisingly good! I wasn’t a fan of The Museum of Intangible Things and did not expect to like this, but it was pleasantly surprised!
Favourite New Author
Hmmm this is a hard one but I think I’m going to go with Jennifer L. Armentrout. I started reading books by her last year BUT I have been obsessed with her books this year, especially those published under J. Lynn. I love her writing and cannot wait to pick up more by her!
Favourite New Crush
Oooooooooh I think I have to go with Rishi from WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI for this one. Honestly, he’s so sweet and cute and I just love him so much.
Favourite New Characters
For this one I’m going with the squad from THE FIXER duology by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I just love Tess and her Hardwicke friends. Like, I really just want to be part of their little group (also I really
want need a third novel!) and solve political mysteries with them.
Book that Made You Cry
It took a little while to think of this because I honestly couldn’t remember if a book has made me cry this year and then I remembered weepy like a baby during A LIST OF CAGES by Robin Roe. This book is beautiful and heartbreaking and ugh I love it so much, you should all read it asap.
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought So Far this Year
Hands down THIS ADVENTURE ENDS by Emma Mills. I mean, look at this cover, it is STUNNING. I find myself looking at it waaaay too often because I mean this is one gorgeous book.
What Books do You Need to Read Before the End of the Year?
I have quiiiiiiite a few books I want to get to before the end of year so maybe I’ll do a TBR post, but these four are the ones I REALLY want to get to!
There you have it, a little wrap up of some of the books I’ve read so far this year! Let me know in the comments what your fave books of 2017 are so far and what books you’re looking forward to! Are they any of the ones I’ve mentioned?
