Mid-Year Book Freakout
|This survey was created by Ely and Chami at A Book So Fathomless|
Because I thought this would be fun, I decided to do it. And also, it'll help me kind of see where I'm at in my reading so far this year.
1)Best book you've read so far in 2014
Gah, that's a hard one. I've read so many good books this year! But I'm going to go with Jackaby by William Ritter.
2)Best sequel you've read so far in 2014
Much easier to answer: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo.
3)New release you haven't read yet, but want to
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige.
4)Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan.
The Here and Now by Ann Brashares. I went into this book expecting it to be good, and loved the first 100 pages. But quite literally by page 101, it went seriously downhill.
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. This got so many bad reviews that my expectations were seriously low. Imagine my surprise when I discovered what a terrific book it is!
7)Favorite new author (debut or new to you)
William Ritter, author of Jackaby. Keep up the good work!
8)Newest fictional crush
Tomas from The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. Once I read Book #3, I realized just how much I loved Tomas.
Newest favorite character
Nikolai from The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. He's awesome!
10)Book that made you cry
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo. Too many feels!
11)Book that made you happy
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
12)Favorite book to film adaption you saw this year
I'm cheating and going to say The Maze Runner. It hasn't been released yet, but I know that it'll be my favorite of the year.
13)Favorite review you've written this year
14)Most beautiful book you've bought so far this year (or received)
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
15)What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
Umm, lots. Too many to list, actually. I'm doing well on my 2014 Series Challenge, but I still have a lot to finish.
For the fun of it, I'm actually going to challenge some fellow bloggers to do this survey. I challenge:
- Hazel @ Hazel West's Character Purgatory
- Kel @ Booked Til Tuesday
- Kimberly @ Turning the Pages
- Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf
