I just wanted to pop this up here in case anyone is interested in what I have read and want to read for the rest of the year.
Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2019?
Well this is a tough one to answer and not because I have read so many amazing books. I have read a total of 47 books so far and there’s only a handful that I have rated five stars, but so far I would say my favorite book so far is Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2019?
Hands down the best sequel I have read is Shadowblack by Sebastien De Castell. I need to continue this series soon because it’s so great and funny!
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To?
There are a few but one that I own and haven’t had a chance to read yet is Aurora Rising. I am a little nervous going into it because I really did not like Jay Kristoff’s Likelike, but we shall see.
Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2019?
I think the two I am most looking forward to is Gideon the Ninth and The Bone Houses. I see so many people with ARCs and I this is one of the few times I wish I could get my hands on a copy of either one.
ELANTRIS! By Brandon Sanderson. I know everyone is in love with every single book he writes but this was boring and repetitive. It took me forever to get through it.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely!! I have been really disappointed recently by the overhyped YA books, but I really enjoyed this one.
Favourite New Author?
Sarah Gailey! I read her book Magic for Liars and loved it!
Newest Fictional Crush?
I don’t have any fictional crushes haha. I am 33 and kind of over crushing on ficitional characters.
Newest Favourite Character?
Daisy Jones! She’s a terrible person but also kind of a badass!!
Book That Made You Cry?
None. Haha I don’t really get too emotional when reading books. Is that a bad thing?
Book That Made You Happy?
The two Spellslinger books from Sabestien de Castell made me so happy! Love the characters and the humor.
