Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hello, all!

I did this tag last year and thought it was such a fun way to look back at my reading, so of course, I had to do it again!




1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2021. 

There's been so many good ones, but I'll go with A Court of Silver Flames- Sarah J. Maas.

2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2021. 

Technically, it's the third in a series, but Act Your Age, Eve Brown- Talia Hibbert.

3. New release you haven't read yet, but want to. 

Songs in Ursa Major- Emma Brodie.

4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year. 

Again, so many! But I'll go with: Under the Whispering Door- T.J. Klune, Kingdom of the Cursed- Kerri Maniscalco and Well Matched- Jen DeLuca.

5. Biggest disappointment. 

A Lady's Formula for Love- Elizabeth Everett and Normal People- Sally Rooney.

6. Biggest surprise. 

It Happened One Summer- Tessa Bailey. I sometimes find Bailey's writing to be very cringy, but I was so taken by this from the moment I started!

7. Favorite new author. (Debut or new to you) 

India Holton.

8. Newest fictional crush. 

Alex from People We Meet on Vacation or Teddy from Second First Impressions.

9. Newest favorite character. 

Cecilia from The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels- India Holton. A sassy lady rogue with a magical flying house? Say no more.

10. Book that made you cry. 

The Nightingale- Kristin Hannah.

11. Book that made you happy. 

84, Charing Cross Road- Helene Hanff.

12. Most beautiful book you've bought so far this year (or received) 

Either The Witch's Heart- Genevieve Gornichec or Ariadne- Jennifer Saint.

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

I say it all the time but The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, but I've actually just finished the first one!


Here are the questions if anyone wants to do this as well!

  1. I need to finish ACOSF already! And I am so excited for Tessa Bailey's newest book- the premise just sounds amazing and I had preordered it as soon as I heard about it! So glad you started Wheel of Time- I'm in the middle of the 4th book!

    1. I think you'll love her new book, it was so fun! The main character has such Alexis from Schitt's Creek vibes and it was perfect. I'm kicking myself a bit for waiting so long to pick up the Wheel of Time series cause I loved the first one!

  3. I have no desire to read Normal People. I watched the show and loved it, but I have heard the book isn't all that great.

    1. I watched the show after and liked it a little more, but I just couldn't with the book. I don't think it's worth it.
