I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I couldn’t resist doing this tag! I know it’s a bit past the middle of the year, but better late than never.
The Best Book You’ve Read So Far In 2016
A Court of Mist and Fury wins everything.
The Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far
Their Fractured Light was an incredible ending to this trilogy. I was amazed by how much I fell in love with all of the characters and how invested I was in the story.
A New Release You Haven’t Read Yet (But You Want To)
I have heard nothing but good things about The Serpent King, so I’m really excited to read it myself.
Most Anticipated Release For Second Half Of 2016
I’m sorry. I know these are basically everyone’s answers…but they’re popular for a reason. I cannot wait for either book.
These Shallow Graves was really disappointing. I honestly didn’t like it, which is rare for me.
I did not know what to expect from Ready Player One, but it ended up being a unique story that I loved, even if I missed most of the pop culture references.
Favorite New Author
I read both of these books in 2016 and I am officially in love with Ryan Graudin‘s stories! Both of them are intense historical fiction novels with great characters and dark world-building.
Newest Fictional Crush
Clark was ADORABLE. He wasn’t just a love interest; he got his own complex personality. And it was an amazing personality.
Newest Favorite Character
I hated Steris in the beginning of this series, but three books in, she is one of my favorite characters ever. I love how she isn’t your typical female character and how Brandon Sanderson has brought her to life.
A Book That Made You Cry
The Raven King made me sob. So. Hard.
A Book That Made You Happy
The Unexpected Everything also made me cry, but for the most part, it is an incredibly sweet story. Just thinking about certain scenes makes me smile.
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought So Far This Year
Sorry to repeat answers, but look at that cover. It is perfection.
Favorite Adaptation So Far This Year
I don’t watch adaptions, so I can’t answer this one.
What Books Do You Need To Read Before The End Of This Year?
I got this book at the beginning of the year and have literally been meaning to read it since then. I haven’t gotten to it yet, but I plan to before the year is over!
Favorite Post You’ve Written So Far This Year
I am really happy with the post that I wrote about reading YA as a girl that cries. I was nervous about posting it, but I got a lot of positive feedback and I’m glad that I put myself out there.
