I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I couldn’t resist doing this tag! I know it’s a bit past the middle of the year, but better late than never.

Most Anticipated Release For Second Half Of 2016

I’m sorry. I know these are basically everyone’s answers…but they’re popular for a reason. I cannot wait for either book.

Biggest Disappointment

These Shallow Graves was really disappointing. I honestly didn’t like it, which is rare for me.

Biggest Surprise

I did not know what to expect from Ready Player One, but it ended up being a unique story that I loved, even if I missed most of the pop culture references.

Favorite New Author

I read both of these books in 2016 and I am officially in love with Ryan Graudin‘s stories! Both of them are intense historical fiction novels with great characters and dark world-building.

Newest Fictional Crush

Clark was ADORABLE. He wasn’t just a love interest; he got his own complex personality. And it was an amazing personality.

Newest Favorite Character

I hated Steris in the beginning of this series, but three books in, she is one of my favorite characters ever. I love how she isn’t your typical female character and how Brandon Sanderson has brought her to life.

A Book That Made You Cry

The Raven King made me sob. So. Hard.

A Book That Made You Happy

The Unexpected Everything also made me cry, but for the most part, it is an incredibly sweet story. Just thinking about certain scenes makes me smile.

Sorry to repeat answers, but look at that cover. It is perfection.

I got this book at the beginning of the year and have literally been meaning to read it since then. I haven’t gotten to it yet, but I plan to before the year is over!

Favorite Post You’ve Written So Far This Year

I am really happy with the post that I wrote about reading YA as a girl that cries. I was nervous about posting it, but I got a lot of positive feedback and I’m glad that I put myself out there.

  1. I have just The Raven King left to read, and although most of the reviews I’ve heard are negative, I’m still excited to get a move on—and agreed, such a beautiful cover!

  2. A Court of Mist and Fury is definitely up there for me too! It was such a good book, which was surprising for me because I didn’t like ACOTAR!
    I’ve heard so many good things about The Serpent King as well! I’ve been told by all my friends who have read it that it’s incredible, and I believe it. c:
    And, just saying, Firsts is a FANTASTIC book! I really enjoyed it and it was very thought-provoking, so I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

    • Yay! I’m glad you liked Firsts, since I’ve seen some mixed reviews for it.
      I didn’t like ACOTAR that much; I didn’t think it was bad, but I wanted more from it. Thankfully, ACOMAF delivered big time and blew me away!
      I can’t wait for The Serpent King! People can’t stop recommending it!
