Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2018 Edition

So I have seen this book tag going around Booktube so I thought I would try my hand at it. 

Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2018

This book surprised me with just how good it is. This is basically an African retelling of Avatar the Last Airbender but it's also different at the same time. I loved the magical aspects in this book and I can't wait for the sequel to be released. 

Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2018

This is the third and final book in the These Vicious Masks trilogy and can I say that I absolutely loved it. The series is a mash-up of Jane Austen and the X-Men. The ending made me tear up a little and I'm still not over this book.  

Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half of the Year

I just finished Strange the Dreamer the other day and the ending of the book destroyed me. I need to know that my babies are gonna be alright and finally be able to be together. I need October to get here so badly. 

Biggest Disappointment

I couldn't even finish this book that's how bad of a disappoint that it was. I can't even see the heroine and the hero being together in any capacity ever. The writing was good but I think this was a filler book that we didn't need. Will this book stop me from the next books in the series? No, it won't. I just wasn't invested in these characters. 

Biggest Surprise

I didn't think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did. It started out really slow and I did put it down at one point. I didn't get into this book until about 60 percent in. And the ending completely destroyed me and I need the sequel in my hands right now.

Favorite New Author

I didn't even know what to expect when I picked up the first book in this trilogy but I ended up devouring all the books and I don't even care that he writes middle-grade books. They don't even seem like middle grade they read like young adult. I can't wait to get started on the next trilogy in this series. 

Newest Fictional Crush

Lazlo Strange (Strange the Dreamer)

... I want you to fight me on this. 

Book That Made You Cry

No book has ever made me cry but I did tear up at the end of this book. I love it so much and the perfect was ending. I can say though I didn't like what the Goblin King's name ended up being. It just didn't seem right. 

Book That Made You Happy

From the moment when Dimple and Rishi met I couldn't stop grinning like a fool. I'm so glad everything worked out for them in the end. 

Favorite Book To Film Adaptation

I haven't actually seen this movie but I've been waiting to watch it since I heard about it. 

Favorite Post You’ve Done This Year

I don't think I have a favorite post that I've done this year. 

Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year

I love this cover but when I downloaded it on my kindle the cover became the gray hardcover version. Oh well.

New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To

This is Gillian and Puck's story and I'm very excited to read it. I just need to read The Darkest Touch, The Darkest Torment, and The Darkest Promise before I can get to it. 

What Book Do You Need To Read By the End of the Year

I already said this but this is the book I need to read the most by the end of the year. Of course, there are also a lot more I need to read as well but this is the most important one.
