Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag

Wow, it is the middle of 2017, and it is very exciting. I see a lot of the other bloggers/Booktubers doing this so I decided to do it. I wasn’t tagged by anyone.

Best Book you read so far?

A book about a world in which death has been conquered, and Scythe’s are responsible for keeping the population in control. Here is my review.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

A book inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, in which Starr sees a friend killed by the police and the aftermath of the shooting. Here is my review.

Best Sequel You’ve Read

This is a two for one deal because both of these sequels are amazing and it proves why she is one of my new favorite authors. Both books ups the stakes of the previous books, and Our Dark Duet was an emotional roller coaster.

New Releases You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want to

I have heard good things about both of these books, and I really want to read them very soon.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year

If you are familiar with my blog, you should know that both Marie Lu and Marissa Meyer, are two of my auto-buy authors. Both of them are making new series so of course I am excited to read both of these books.

Biggest Disappointment

While I did enjoy the book, it just wasn’t at the potential that I thought it was. I also felt that the book was a little to short and I kinda wanted more from the story.

Biggest Surprise

This was a sort of random pick up, and I enjoyed it very much. It had me at Sailor Moon meets Pacific Rim and it was great. Here is my review.

Favorite new author

Earlier this year, I read More Happy Than Not and was completely blown away by it, and then I read History is All You Left Me which was also equally good. Now he is one my favorite YA contemporary authors.

Book that made you cry

Enough said.

Book that made you happy

This was a cute little high school story about a boy coming out and trying to find love. Really good read and I cannot wait for the movie to come out.

That is my Mid-Year Freak out Tag. If you are reading this consider yourself tagged. Also what are your favorite books you have read so far? Let me know in the comments below.

January 13th Topic: Most Anticipated of 2017 – Which books are you most excited to get your hands on this year?

Another great topic, Wednesday I already did my debut authors I am excited about and this will talk about more books I am excited for.

Warcross by Marie Lu

When you find out that one of your favorite authors is writing another series, of course you would jump for joy. The premise also looks interesting. It looks like it will be a sci fi story. I am excited to see what Marie Lu does with that genre, as both a fan of Legend trilogy and Young Elites trilogy.

The Gatlon School of Vigilantes by Marissa Meyer

This already had me sold with superheros. It also had me sold with Marissa Meyer. I loved her Lunar Chronicles series, loved Heartless, now I want to see what she can do with the superhero genre. The premise also reminds me a lot of the movie Sky High with the school of superheros divided by heroes and sidekicks.

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2)

I really liked This Savage Song, and I want to see where the story continues especially after how the first one ended. Victoria Schwab is slowly becoming by favorite author.

Now I Rise by Kiersten White 

22817331

Another sequel to one of my favorite books And I Darken. I want to see how the story continues and what more twists and turns it will come up with it.

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

30233110

From the author of the Divergent trilogy. While I wasn’t a huge fan of Allegiant, I did like the other two books, I also like that this is set in space so of course I have to read it, and I hope it is a lot better than the Divergent series.

Those are books I am excited for for 2017. What books are you excited to read in 2017? Is there any books you would like me to add? Let me know in the comments below.
