I originally saw this tag on A Book and a Cup of Coffee!
1. Best Book You've Read So Far in 2016?
I've read about fifty books so far this year and Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys is EASILY the best one I've read. I loved the characters. I loved learning about the history behind it. It gives you the feels. Seriously, it's been like six months since I read this book (HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!) and I'm still not even close to over this book.
If you decide to read this book. Please come talk to me about it. PLEASE?!
2. Best Sequel You've Read So Far In 2016?
I went through all the books I've read so far this year and I think that only like 2 of the books I have down were sequels? The Dream Thieves was actually the last book that I finished and I am SO in love with this series so far! I might have actually DNFed a book after this one partially so that I could get on to Blue Lily, Lily Blue faster. BUT ONLY PARTIALLY! I also didn't love the narrator's voice and it wasn't about what I thought it was going to be about.
3. New Release You Haven't Read Yet But Want To?
Okay, I'm going to go with ALL OF THEM! I haven't read really any of the books I have been so excited for this year yet! I have ELEVEN of the books pictured below and I haven't read them yet. I'm hoping that after ARC August I can get all my ARCs read and then I can work on some of these!
4. Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half Of 2016?
Once again, like ALL of them!! I have like all of these preordered, I think. I'm so excited. I can't pick just one.
5. Biggest Disappointment?
I was SO excited to read this one because I had heard EVERYONE raving about it and the premise sounded so cool! But this one just didn't work for me, sadly. I kind of want to read the second one to see where it goes, but at the same time, I wasn't even excited for the cover reveal so maybe I don't want to anymore. :(
6. Biggest Surprise?
This one was a surprise for a couple reasons. One was because it wasn't about what I thought it was about exactly. Also, contemporary isn't something I usually choose to read, but I absolutely ADORED this book! It deals with mental health and was SO good!
7. Favorite New Author (Debut Or New To You)?
1. Maggie Stiefvater
2. S. Usher Evans
3. Roshani Chokshi
8. Newest Fictional Crush?
I loved both Julian from Caraval and Gansey from The Raven Boys! They have both made their way onto my fictional boyfriend list! But they'll never top my beloved Liam Stewart! *heart eyes*
9. Newest Favorite Character?
One of my favorite characters so far this year is Emilia from Salt to the Sea. I think she's so brave and strong and I love her so much!
10. Book That Made You Cry?
This book was so sad! There have been a few others that made me cry this year *cough*SaltToTheSea*cough*, but this is probably the most recent book that made me cry! I can't wait for the movie to come out because I think this one missed the theater in my little town.
11. Book That Made You Happy?
I just finished rereading this book and if it's even possible, I think I loved it even more the second time! Everything about this series makes me happy and I'm excited to reread the rest of this series as soon as possible!!
12. Most Beautiful Book You've Gotten So Far This Year?
Seriously, I have been raving about this cover since I first saw it. Why have I not gotten around to reading this yet?!
13. What Books Do You Need To Read By The End Of This Year?
See questions 3 and 4.
