The Mid-Year Freakout Book Tag

Thanks to Jo-Ann at Inspiration Pie for tagging me for The Mid-Year Freakout Book Tag. This awesome post was completely new to me, but how awesome is it to share the books I’ve read these last view months with you guys.

So before you guys go and check out my books, visit Inspiration Pie. It’s an awesome blog filled with all sorts of posts: reviews, Daily Walks and so much more.

1 - The Best Book You've Read So Far In 2017

Well, I didn’t have to think hard about that question. The best book I’ve read so far this year is definitely ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’ by Sarah J. Maas. Off course I was way late in starting this series, but I devoured this book. I really loved everything about this story and the characters.  It was honestly one of the best Fantasy books I’ve read in at least a year. And I really can’t wait to read the next books in this series.

2 - You're Favorite Sequel This Year

My favorite sequel I read this year so far is definitely ‘Every Little Thing’ by Samantha Young. This is a Contemporary Romance book and the second one in the Hart’s Boardwalk series. I love Samantha Young’s writing. And this series is just amazing. I read the first book in this series ‘The One Real Thing’ in November of 2016 and couldn’t wait to read the next book. These books are centered around characters who life in the small town of Hartwell and if you haven’t read it you really should start reading as soon as possible.

3 - A New Release You Haven't Read But Really Want To

One of the newest releases I really want to read but haven’t yet is ‘Come Sundown’ by Nora Roberts. I love Nora Roberts, and in the last view years I’ve read several of her books. Her writing is just so exciting and thrilling and I really need to read this book. And don’t you just love this cover by Piatkus.  

4 - Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half of the Year

One of the books I’m really looking forward to read this year is the new J.D. Robb novel that will be published in September ‘Secrets In Death’. Although I haven’t read all the book in the In Death series I really loved the books I did read and I can’t wait to read more Lieutenant Eve Dallas.

5 - Biggest Disappointment

I think my biggest disappointment this year so far has got to be ‘Two by Two’ by Nicholas Sparks. I love Nicholas Sparks and I was so excited to read this new book by him. But unfortunately I had many issues with this read. For one the characters weren’t very easy to like at all. This book got better near the end, but I really had my hopes set up much higher for this one.

6 - Biggest Surprise

My biggest surprise this year is definitely ‘Silent Waters’ by Brittainy C. Cherry. I listened to this one on audio, and what an amazing story it was. I was literarily blown away by this one. ‘Silent Waters’ is definitely a book I’ll remember for a long time.

7 - Favorite New Author (Debut Or New To You)

My favorite new author is definitely Sarah J. Maas. Like I said before I just loved her book ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’, and I really want to read more books by her. She had such an amazing way of writing, I just need more!

8 - Your New Fictional Crush

My favorite book crush this year so far is definitely Brooks from ‘Silent Waters'. What an amazing character. I loved how kind, sweet and loving he was and I just couldn’t read enough about him. If only more people would be like him, this world would be a much better place. Definitely a swoon-worthy character.

9 - A Book That Made You Cry

Hmm.. I haven't cried about a book this year so far to be honest. I cried while reading 'Me Before You', but that was last year. No bookish tears so far..

10 - A Book That Made You Happy

There are many books that make me happy. But one of the books I remember making me feel happy lately was 'A Tapping At My Door' by David Jackson. I was really in the mood for a good Crime novel, and this book was really really good. And definitely a series I want to read more books of.

11 - Your Favorite Book To Movie Adaption That You've Seen This Year

Although I looooove movies. I haven’t seen many new movies lately. Planning our wedding took away all my movie watching time. So no book to movie adaptions this year so far for me.

12 - Favorite Book Post You Published This Year

Well, it’s not really one post. But this year I started my weekly meme ‘My Favorite..’, and it’s been really fun so far. I love sharing something positive each week, and slowly on more people are joining which makes it even better for me.

13 - The Most Beautiful Book You Have Bought/ Received This Year

The most beautiful book I received was definitely ‘Talking As Fast As I Can' by Lauren Graham. The book isn’t exactly beautiful, but it is really fun to read. And as a huge Gilmore Girls fan I was super excited to be able to receive this book in exchange for a review. I couldn’t stop talking about is for weeks.

14 - What Are Some Books That You Need To Read By The End Of The Year

This year I really would like to finish reading the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I’ve read ‘Cinder’ and ‘Scarlet’, but I really need to finish this series. I feel like I’m missing out, and I loved the first two books in the series. And I have the books waiting on me on my bookshelf.

Fellow Book Bloggers I Tag:

I tag the following book bloggers to join The Mid-Year Freakout Book Tag, no obligations off course:


  1. I've never read any of Sarah Maah's books but I see in the book blogosphere that they are incredibly popular. Since you have put it as your top book of 2017 I will definitely have to read that one soon!

    Silent Waters looks really good too!

    So glad you did this tag! Yay!


    1. You definitely should Jo-Ann. I also waited a long time before I finally read a Sarah Maas novel and it was sooooo good! :D
      'Silent Waters' was really a very beautiful book. I listened to it on Audio and it was great.
      Thanks for tagging me and visiting! ;)

  2. Fun tag! I'm tempted to give Sarah Maas a try since her books are SO popular! Plus I need more YA fantasy. :) And love that cover for Secrets in Death!

    Glad your My Favorites feature is doing well too. It's a great idea!

    Thanks for tagging me!!

    1. Thanks Greg. The My Favorites Feature is definitely going better and better. I love it.
      I really want to read more Sarah Maas novels since I read that one. What a great book.
      Thanks for stopping by! ;)

  3. I still haven't read any Sarah J. Maas, but they are on my TBR list :)

    I will soon start something that's kind of similar to your favorite post... I had the idea for mine last year - before you started with yours - but then, both because you started with yours, and because I've been so busy, I put it on hold. Mine will be only book based, and about favorite stuff from books read in the past month :)

    Have a great weekend, Maureen!
