Another day, another book tag!
Even though no one actually tagged me for this one, I’m doing it because I’ve seen it around a lot and it seems like a really fun one to do. So, there you go, I’m breaking the rules and I’m doing the tag.
Best book you’ve read so far in 2017
Is that even a question you need to ask me?
YESSS… It’s History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Big surprise 😀
Best Sequel of 2017 so far
I haven’t read any?
New release you haven’t read yet but want to
Words in Deep Blue! I’m patiently awaiting my order. I should be getting it by the end of this week, so yay!
Most anticipated release of the second half of 2017
It’s impossible for me to choose one, so I’m picking two
Biggest disappointment of 2017
I’ve actually been really lucky with the books I’ve read. They weren’t all five stars or anything, but none of them disappointed me. If I HAD TO name one, I’d say The Upside Of Unrequited. It’s not a bad book by any means, but I expected it to be better after reading Simon vs.
I’d heard so many good things about this book, but I didn’t think it would live up to all the expectations. It did, though. It actually surpassed my expectations by a long shot. So much so that I can’t wait to see the movie!
Favourite new author (debut or new to you)
Adam Silvera, definitely.
Newest fictional crush
I’m in my twenties so it’s kind of weird to pick a fictional (teenage) crush BUT I’ll ignore my age and do it anyway. If I were a teen again, I would be crushing on Rhys from A Quiet Kind of Thunder.
Newest favourite character
Simon!! ❤ I love how he isn’t a typical angsty teenager. For most of the book, he’s actually pretty chill (as they say) and even though he makes mistakes (as we all do) I think he’s got a good head on his shoulders.
Book that made you cry
I don’t cry over books. Ever.
(I used to not cry over movies either. And even though that’s changed recently, it still takes a lot to make me cry.
No, I’m not dead inside! I guess I’m just not a cryer?)
Book that made you happy
I prefer ‘sad’ / emotional books over happy books, so I can’t really come up with a book that’s made me happy. Having said that, there are plenty of books that had funny, happy moments that I really enjoyed. For example: Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt was a light read that made me smile throughout the book.
Favourite book to movie adaptation of 2017 you’ve seen
I liked this movie, but I haven’t read the book. Does that count?
Favourite review you’ve written this year
I only started blogging this year so I have a lot to learn when it comes to writing reviews, but I’m happy with the review I wrote for All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
Most beautiful book you bought or received this year
I love this cover.
Books you need to read by the end of this year
I have so many! Here are a couple:
- Words in Deep Blue
- The Color Project
- They Both Die at The End
- Turtles All the Way Down
- Cold Summer
- Words in Bathroom Walls
Sine I wasn’t tagged to do this post, I’m not going to tag anyone either. But that just means absolutely anyone can do it! And you should because it’s actually really fun to do. Let me know if you decide to do it so I can check out your answers!
