Posted July 3, 2019 by wildandw in Blog Feature / 0 Comments

HOW IS IT ALREADY JULY!?!  I feel like this year is going by so quickly!  Today I’m doing the Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag to recap my reading for the first half of 2019.  I haven’t read nearly as much as I would have liked, but that seems to be the story of my life!

Here we go!


1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2019?

Letters to Molly by Devney Perry is one of a couple books that I gave 5 stars!  This one hit me in the feels, for sure!

2. BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2019?

Huh…I guess I haven’t read that many sequels so far this year.  The Something About Her by Rachel Higginson is part of a series of standalones, so I’m going with it!  This whole series if fantastic, though.

3. NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET, BUT WANT TO?

SO MANY!  99 Percent Mine by Sally ThorneA Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer, and The Bride Test by Helen Hoang to name a few.

4. MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR SECOND HALF OF 2019?

Hands down, my most anticipated second half releases are Rage by Cora Carmack and Rebel by Marie Lu!  Heck, these are my most anticipated for the entire year!

5. BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT?

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez is well-loved by many, but for me, it left some to be desired.  Also, although it’s a backlist book, I didn’t finish The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye, so that was disappointing!

6. BIGGEST SURPRISE?

Another backlist book has been my most surprising read — Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson!  I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did.

7. FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR?

Debut Author:  Kerry Winfrey
New-to-Me Author:  Devney Perry

8. NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH?

I met quite a few swoon-worthy characters, but Ethan from The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren sticks out most.

9. NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER?

I ADORED Séverin Montagnet-Alarie from The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi!

10. BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY?

None?  I’m pretty sure only one book has ever made me cry.  But, Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan nearly made me cry!  That book is absolutely heartbreaking but beautifully written.

11. BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY?

Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett!  All of her book make me happy, though!

12. FAVORITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION YOU SAW THIS YEAR?

After hearing so many good things, I finally watched Crazy Rich Asians.  IT. IS. AMAZING.  I also re-watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before at least 5 times this year (*feels no shame*)!

13. FAVORITE REVIEW YOU’VE WRITTEN THIS YEAR?

Hmmm this is tough because I’m super self-critical…
I’m going to go with my review of Hate Notes by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland.

14. MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU BOUGHT SO FAR THIS YEAR?

I bought the Lark Cove Series by Devney Perry.  She has such beautiful covers!  Also, We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal is STUNNING!

15. WHAT BOOKS DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR?

Like, all of them!?!  Seriously, though, I plan to continue my re-read of the Legend series then dive into Warcross and Wildcard by Marie Lu in anticipation of the release of Rebel.


And there it is, folks!  I hope you enjoyed my responses.  Now it’s YOUR turn!  If you feel like jumping in on this, then TAG, you’re it!
