Mid Year Book Freakout Tag | 2020

Hi friends! Today I’m going to be summing up my reading for the first half of the year! Some of these questions have multiple answers because I couldn’t just pick one!

BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2020?

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
I cannot even begin to explain my feelings for this book. It was incredible and beautiful. It has been a while since I’ve been so deeply invested in a book. Addie LaRue deserves every star in the galaxy. EVERY. SINGLE. STAR.

BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2020?

Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
This is the second book in the Nervermoor middle grade series. I am so happy I decided to read these books. They are perfection. I love Morrigan and all of her friends she makes along the way. I’m not so patiently waiting for the third book’s release later this year!

NEW RELEASE YOU HAVENT READ YET, BUT WANT TO.

-Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie
-Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed
-Incendiary by Zoraida Córdova

MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE HEAR.

-Fable by Adrienne Young
-Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

Bent Heavens by Daniel Kraus
Y’all I hated this book. I rarely say that, but wow this was bad. I went in thinking it was going to be this cool sci fi about aliens, but ummmm that wasn’t the case. Read my full review here if you want! 😬

BIGGEST SURPRISE

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
This book marked my first time reading an adult thriller so I wasn’t really expecting much out of it. I was definitely not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. I stayed up late reading and it truly scared the hell out of me! Definitely one of my favorite reads of the year!

FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR (debut or new to you)

Rory Power author of Wilder Girls & Burn Our Bodies Down
I have read both of her books recently and wow! She comes up with the most bizarre ideas and somehow makes them work. I will read everything she publishes.

NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH

Alex from It Sounded Better in My Head
He is the bad boy with a huge heart. I absolutely adored him!

NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER

Rev from More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer
This is kind of cheating because Rev isn’t really a new character to me. I met him last year while reading Letters to the Lost, but this year I read his book! Rev is a freaking gem. He has such a big heart and he will always be there for anyone who needs help. I love him!!

BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY

The Lucky Ones by Liz Lawson
I didn’t cry necessarily, but it did break my heart. This was about a girl who was the sole survivor of a school shooting.

BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY

All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace
This story takes you on a wild adventure and I loved every second of it. This was actually my first read of 2020 so it made me super happy that I started off the year with a book that I adored.

MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOIGHT SO FAR THIS YEAR

-Felix Ever After by Kacen Calendar!
-Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust (Fairyloot edition)

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

-Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno
