So far in 2017 I have read 40 books, which has already surpassed my Goodreads goal for the year and, at the rate I've been reading, I think I might be able to hit 80 before the year is up! This is my first attempt at a tag, though it's not my first go at a book round up sort of thing, so I think we'll be okay. Here goes nothing!
1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017?
I had so much trepidation going into this book and I don't really know why, but in the end it didn't matter, because this book knocked it out of the park for me. I loved the characters, I loved the story, and I LOVED the circus!
2. BEST SEQUEL OF 2017 SO FAR?
I've only read three sequels this year and none of them really wowed me, but of the three P.S. I Still Love You was definitely the front runner.
3. NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET, BUT WANT TO?
This one may be cheating a little bit, since I already have this on my kindle and have read the first couple of chapters, but of the June releases this is the one I am most excited about!
4. MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE OF THE SECOND HALF OF 2017?
Adorable title, adorable cover, and a premise that is totally up my alley. I cannot wait to get into this one!
5. BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT?
I picked this one up almost immediately after reading and enjoying the heck out of the first book in the series, but this one just didn't work for me. It didn't really hold my interest and I almost didn't even finish it. The series had such a strong start for me, but after reading this one I'm not so eager to read through the rest right away.
6. BIGGEST SURPRISE?
I had an audiobook credit I needed to use and this popped up on my recommended list. I decided to give it a go, but I wasn't really expecting much. Well I was very pleasantly surprised. I loved the crap out of this book and promptly purchased the adorable paperback copy as well as the sequel, which I plan to read very soon!
7. FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR (DEBUT OR NEW TO YOU) ?
This book was awesome! I had never read anything by C.B. Lee before, but I am such a fan now and I can't wait for the second book to come out!
8. NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH?
Oliver Flagg, be still my heart!
9. NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER?
Coco Chanel Jones, hands down! I dare anyone to read this book and not fall in love with Coco Chanel Jones. She is sassy, fierce, and fabulous. I think she needs her own book!
10. BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY?
I think this one is kind of a no brainer.
11. BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY?
I know I said Oliver was my newest crush, but I kind of have two, and Lincoln is the other one. He wasn't the only thing I loved about this book, though. Anise, her best friends, her dad, and her cousins all made this such a wonderful book and I was all smiles when I turned that last page!
12. FAVORITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION YOU’VE SEEN THIS YEAR?
I've seen a couple of adaptations this year, but this was definitely my favorite so far!
13. FAVORITE REVIEW YOU’VE WRITTEN THIS YEAR?
I loved this book and in turn I loved writing a review for it. Spies, lies, and guys loving guys (what could be better? Or rhymed in a more delightfully cheesy way?)
14. MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU BOUGHT OR RECEIVED SO FAR THIS YEAR?
For obvious reasons... *swoon*
15. WHAT BOOKS DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR?
And The Magicians series by Lev Grossman!
A lot of great books so far this year, so not so much, but I can't wait to see what's to come the rest of this year :0)
