Yes yes, it’s already September and I’m waaaaaaaaay too late with this. But I want to do it so I can, right?
I set my Goodreads goal to 30 books. I’ve now read 29 books so I’m doing well! As for the other challenges I took for myself, I think I’ll make another post for those.
BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2019
Romanov by Nadine Brandes. This book is by far my favorite so far! It has stuck with me ever since I read it in January and I think it will stay with me a long time.
BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2019
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. I wanted to put Firewitness here but since I haven’t finished it yet, that might be cheating? So Queen Maas takes this place!
MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR
Serpent&Dove by Shelby Mahurin, it’s published tomorrow!!
The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer. I had so high expectations for this book. It was pretty hyped back in the days. But it sadly fell flat for me.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. I usually don’t have that high expectations for super hyped books and The Cruel Prince surprised me in a good way. Now, I’m addicted to this trilogy (is it a trilogy?) and I want The Queen of Nothing now!
FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR (OR NEW TO YOU)
Lars Kepler for sure! I want to read all of the Joona Linna books before the end of the year.
NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH
Cardan from The Folk of the Air 😍
NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER
I’m going to say Darkling from Shadow and Bone. He makes me feel so mixed things that I can’t even decide do I hate him or love him!
BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
FAVORITE BOOK TO FILM ADAPTATION
I’m pretty sure this is the only adaptation I’ve watched this year. And I haven’t even read the book, oops. But I loved the movie though!
FAVORITE POST YOU’VE DONE THIS YEAR
DISCUSSION : 20+ YEARS OLD, TOO OLD FOR YA BOOKS?
Probably the one and only discussion post I’ve put out there this year.
MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT THIS YEAR
NEW RELEASES YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT WANT TO
Just to name few of them. 😀
BOOK YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR
Again, just to name few of them. 😅
