1 – THE BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017
2 – YOUR FAVOURITE SEQUEL THIS YEAR
I haven’t read any sequels yet this year, so sadly I can’t have a favorite. But I’m planning on reading The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon very soon. I want to read Glass Sword by Veronica Aveyard as well, but I’m waiting to get the paperback so it matches my copy of Red Queen. Hello yes, my name is Crazy, And you are?
3 – A NEW RELEASE THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ BUT REALLY WANT TO
I’ve heard such. great. things about this book, and I am dying to read it! It explores a topic that is so current right now, and it’s definitely something everyone should read.
4 – MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR
I ANTICIPATE ALL THE BOOKS.
5 – YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT
This book was SO DISAPPOINTING. I was so excited about reading it, so drawn in by the cover, the premise, and the fact that Rhys Bowen was a bestselling author… and I hated every second of it. Not my cup of tea, sorry old chaps. Pip Pip, Cheerio.
6 – BIGGEST SURPRISE OF THE YEAR
The fact that it’s June???????? #Fakenews
7 – FAVOURITE NEW TO YOU OR DEBUT AUTHOR
Amy Harmon is my favorite author discovery of 2017. She’s captured my heart, my mind, and my soul with her writing, especially in The Bird and the Sword. This was her first fantasy novel, and she completely blew me away. If you haven’t read it yet, run like Usain Bolt is chasing you to your local book store and pick it up.
8 – YOUR NEW FICTIONAL CRUSH
Based only off of what I’ve read so far in 2017, I’m going with Angelo Bianco in From Sand and Ash. His relationship with Eva gave me all of the feels, even though he was a little frustrating sometimes.
9 – NEW FAVOURITE CHARACTER
Again, based only off of 2017 novels, I’m going to say Rosie from The Rosie Project. I liked that she wasn’t the typical Manic Pixie Dream Girl, and she wasn’t around just to make Don happy. She had her own goals, whether he wanted to be a part of them or not.
10 – A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
This book is about World War II in Italy, written in the alternating viewpoints of Eva Rosselli, a Jewish girl, and Angelo Bianco, a Catholic Priest. As you can only guess, there are many hardships and horrifying events that are chronicled within these pages. Even though Eva and Angelo are fictional characters, I got very attached to them and their families. Their triumphs were mine, and their hardships were mine for the duration of this book.
11 – A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
Who wouldn’t be happy after looking at this cover?
12 – YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION THAT YOU’VE SEEN THIS YEAR
Okay, so this is not a movie but Z: The Beginning of Everything, hands down. Christina Ricci makes the perfect Zelda Fitzgerald, and I thought the characters and events of the novel were portrayed really well. Go watch on Amazon Prime!
13 – FAVOURITE BOOK POST YOU’VE PUBLISHED THIS YEAR
I don’t exactly have a favorite post, but the one I had the most fun writing was the Get to Know Me Tag!
