Hey, everyone! I almost missed this week’s schedule, because I’m still quite not used to blogging again, and I completely forgot I used to post a tag on Wednesdays (??). Thanks to Joana @ bookneeders, I didn’t. She posted today the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag, which is a tag I love reading, and she also tagged me, so I’m very excited to share it with you! 😀
Before the questions, I’ll be telling you how I’m doing on my reading challenges (they’re not many and I’m still failing):
- Goodreads Reading Challenge – I’ve read 30 out of 50 books (3 were DNFs, tho, so don’t really count)
- Beat the Backlist – hmmmm, right. I’m pretty sure I’m doing fine, the problem is that I forgot to update the info on the website … and I haven’t done such in the last three months.
I just want to make clear that even tho 2017 has brought me a lot of bad books, I’ve also read some amazing books this year, and some of them that I REALLY loved aren’t featured here because I was trying really hard to control myself and to keep this short 😛 (*hm HM the blood of olympus*)
1. Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2017
It’s not that I have a long list of favourites, but between these three, I couldn’t choose just one. ^^
2. Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2017
ACOTAR and ACOMAF couldn’t be more different, and that’s why I find A Court of Mist and Fury to be a great sequel! ACOWAR was great too, and I loved it (even tho it was for different reasons), but it didn’t have the same impact on me as ACOMAF did.
I also haven’t read many sequels this year, so I didn’t have a lot of options.
3. New Release You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To
Everyone seems so excited and happy about this book, and so it made me pretty excited too! I have no idea if or when I’ll get to it, though. 😦
4. Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2017
I know this book was already released, but as I’ve read the first and second books in Portuguese, I want to read this one in Portuguese as well, and so I have to wait. I have no idea when the translated version comes out, but I hope it’s still this year!
5. Biggest Disappointment
Hmmm, 2017 has not been my year
6. Biggest Surprise
❤ ❤ ❤
7. Favourite New Author (Debut or New To You)
Sarah J Maas ^^
8. Newest Fictional Crush
Cassian (ACOWAR) ❤
9. Newest Favourite Character
Jem and Tessa (both from TID) 🙂
10. Book That Made You Cry
No answers here! I’m not usually a crybaby, as Joana claims to be, but sometimes I do have a book or two to fit into this category. Nothing so far, though. 😛
11. Book That Made You Happy
12. Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You Saw This Year
Do these count? haha (and yes, I’ve only watched Pride and Prejudice this year!!)
13. Favourite Review You’ve Written
I don’t particularly like any of the reviews I’ve written so far, but maybe my review of A Thousand Salt Kisses Later, because, even if it’s very simple, at least I named all the problems I saw (and me becoming more critic is a good thing 😛 )
14. Most Beautiful Book You Bought/Received This Year
I’m still not over how beautiful this edition is! ❤
15. What Books Do You Have To Read By The End Of The Year
Well, I’m hoping I can get rid of all the books in my TBR (currently 25 books), but I really want to read: Little Women, Clockwork Princess and The Bane Chronicles, Stalking Jack the Ripper and The Hate U Give. 🙂
What about you? How are you doing so far on your challenges? What’s your favourite book so far? Or your biggest disappointment?
I’m not tagging anyone tonight, but tomorrow I’ll start working on my other tags, and I’ll write a list of everyone I could tag, so that I don’t repeat the same names over and over again 😛 So, if you, for whatever reason, don’t want to be tagged on anything, just let me know 🙂
