Mid-Year Book Freak Out (2019)

Mid-Year Book Freak Out (2019)

It’s that time again where everyone in the book blogging community do their annual check in to see their reading progress. As of the end of June, I have read 51 books so far this year. I never really got into doing this the past years because I never really had time to reflect on my reading choices until the end of the year. But I’ve really enjoyed the books I’ve read this year.

I’m not sure if these are the correct questions since I can’t seem to find the original post but I had taken these from Saajid’s video. I also removed fictional crush because it just wasn’t applicable so without further ado, I present my Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag!

Best book you’ve read so far in 2019.

Jade City

I’m saying it now, I don’t think any book I read this year will beat Jade City. This book is my everything and I love it so much. I wrote a short review not long ago but honestly I don’t think that it gave it justice.

Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019.

Jade War

…. Jade War.

Don’t be surprised by the amount of times I will mention the Green Bone saga. I came to read Jade City by chance after receiving an email to join the blog tour for Jade War. So I delve into the first book and already knew I had to join the blog tour. I actually wasn’t expecting to be accepted but I’m so grateful to Shealea @ Caffeine Book Tours for choosing me. I’m holding off my thoughts for the blog tour but yes, the sequel raises the stakes and had me emotionally drained.

New release you haven’t read yet but want to

I bought a copy months ago and it’s still sitting on my shelf. I really like zombie apocalypse stories in any form of media so I definitely need to get around and read this.

Books On My Spring 2018 TBR

ttt_springtbr2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.

I’m a very messy reader, I can never decide what books I want to read (unless it’s a review copy) and I was never really the kind of person to read certain books during different seasons. Seasonal TBRs seem to be really common, but I’m so behind on what books I want to read, keeping to a TBR has always been so hard for me. So, here is a ‘maybe I’ll read it soon, but because of who I am as a person, who knows?’
