2019 Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

a peek at my tbr

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through 2019??? Am I the only one that feels like the year is flying by? I have so many books I wanted to read and shows I wanted to watch, but suddenly we’re already at the middle of the year.

So yeah, I’m lowkey freaking out. What’s a better way to do it than joining a book tag about it?? I saw a lot of people doing it on my feed, so I figure I’ll join in on the fun. The last blog I read that posted about this tag was Merline @ Merline Reads, so I’m linking up to her blog!

Best book so far you’ve read in 2019

36621586. sy475

Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden

Hands down, THE best book I’ve read this year. The epic conclusion to my all time favorite series, I devoured this book in one/two sittings. ALL THE FEELS.

Best sequel so far you’ve read in 2019

Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden

New release you haven’t read yet, but want to

40864907 42201431

The Kingdom by Jess Rothernberg and The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year

28006109. sy475

The Tyrant’s Tomb by Rick Riordan

Biggest disappointment

39805243. sy475

Tbh this year IS a year of disappointment for me in terms of reading. The Antidote, Romanov, Nocturna, The Cold is in Her Bones… the list goes on and on. But King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo definitely takes the cake. It was long and convoluted, and for a book about Nikolai, it sure doesn’t focus on him.

Biggest surprise


If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka

It unexpectedly felt very personal for me, but it also has cute banter and amazing characters!

Favorite new to you or debut author

Laura Purcell

I’ve been having her book, The Silent Companions, on my TBR for a while now. I recently got approved on her newest book, The Poison Thread (being renamed into The Corset) and let’s just say, it’s such a fantastic read that I don’t think I can wait until the halloween season to read TSC!

Newest fictional crush


If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka

I’d put Morozko here but he’s not exactly a new crush, so. Brendan is so cute though, he deserves this title!

Newest favorite character


If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka

Again, the story just felt so personal to me that I can see myself in Cameron. But more than that, she has this amazing growth throughout the story that I can’t help but cheer for her!

Book that made you cry


The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

It’s just a tragic and sad story about real-life conflict that’s still going on until now.

Book that made you happy

30313391. sy475

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

Look, I’d be lying if I say I was excited for the release of this book. I was not. I feel like the 2nd book wrapped the story pretty nicely and we don’t need another book. Well, let it be know that I was wrong, this book is a happy place I didn’t know I needed!

Favorite book to film adaptation

Can I say Avengers: Endgame?? That movie just destroyed me!

Favorite post you’ve done this year

Honestly, blogging this year has been such a blur as I’ve been VERY busy that I barely had time to sit and write any posts. I don’t even remember what I’ve posted this year 😅 After a look through though, I can say Does Unrelateable Representation Equals to Bad Representation? and Top 5 Wednesday #51: Books I’ve Read Because of My Mom are my favorite posts this year!

Most beautiful book you’ve got this year

Image result for roads publishing scarlet letter

This gorgeous edition of The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne by Roads publishing. Their classics editions are gorgeous, I’m determined to collect them all.

What books do you need to read by the end of the year?

20764879 29939230 34499221. sy475

Yep, I still haven’t read them.

How’s your reading looking so far? Are you on track? Are you behind? What are some books you need to read before the year ends?

  1. Glad to hear that you ended up enjoying the third Lara Jean book! I just finished the first one and really liked it, although I’m always a little hesitant about contemporary series (mostly because I feel like they could just be wrapped up in a book or two…). Very excited to continue on with this series!


  2. Ooh I really need to pick up the winter of the witch! I absolutely love the ADSOM series, I hope you enjoy the series as well!



  3. Ahh lovely answers for this tag! I am so, so curious about The Kingdom, it sounds like a great read, I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂 and ahhh I’m so happy to see so much of If I’m Being Honest here, I love this book so much ❤
    Hope the rest of the year will be amazing, reading-wise 😀


  4. The Unhoneymooners is def on my TBR and since I heard If I’m Being Honest is based off of 10 Things I Hate About You I was completely sold! I am dying to read both of these! I am also surprised at how quickly this year has flown by too! It feels like yesterday I just said Happy New Year!
