Hiya Amigos ! I know this supposed me in mid-June but being new to the community was not aware until the wonderful Aria tagged me ! It’s a bit of an institution here in the bookish community – It’s a great time to check in and see where I’m at, and to share some favorites with you.
Best Book You’ve Read This Year?
This one is so tough! I will go with a few ….
- Artemis Fowl
- Murder on the Orient Express
- I have not yet written review for ‘The Worst Thing about My Sister ‘
Best Sequel You’ve Read This Year?
Hahah when I saw this question, my immediate thought was “have I read any sequels”?
My absolute standout sequel was one that I read immediately after the first book in the series as I loved the first so much. Guts !!!! After Smile :)And even Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Circle
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To?
The cover is absolutely gorgeous and the premise of the book sounds amazing! . And I have heard stunning things about it from fellow book bloggers .I don’t even own it which is sad…
Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half Of The Year?
Isn’t this the most beautiful one of the series?
Can’t wait to read this (hopefully) epic conclusion to one of my favorite series of all time. I also want to re read the others in the series !
It was the biggest disappointment I really had liked Divergent and was looking forward to reading the rest
Allegiant was so chock full of plot holes, unrealistic situations, contrived character development and laughable explanations !
I have not written a review yet but really looking forward to tell why I was so disappointed 😦
SPOILER ALERT !!!
And the ending was ridiculous and made me roll my eyes so hard. [Seriously, Roth? Killing off your main character to make it more dramatic? That’s just low.
I can’t think of any I was super surprised by but I was pleasantly moderately surprised by Kane Chronicle: The Red Pyramid .Atleast from Goodreads I had not heard great things about this trilogy . There were surely good reviews but I expected this to be a fine read . And it was obvoiusly not better than PJO or HoO but still it kind of exceeded my expectations .
New Favorite Author (New To You Or Debut)?
Oh I have read so many excellent debuts already! I really liked No Ordinary Thing by GZ Schmidt …..I received an ARC of No Ordinary Thing and I read it within a couple of days. I have even done an author interview with her :)It was absolutely amazing. Then Agatha Christie is also amazing…. I recently read her books and I love them….Murder on the Orient Express is one of my favs ! It is the perfect book to curl up and get lost in !
Book That Made You Cry?
I’m a fairly emotional person, so it’s not a shocker when a book makes me cry but that’s because I become very attached to characters. If something sad happens in the book and I don’t cry then you know that I don’t like the book.
Book That Made You Happy?
There are so many books that make me happy …..I just can’t choose one….I am sicker for happy endings 🙂
Favorite Book To Film Adaptation?
Little Woman and the Worst and Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life I really enjoyed watching them both
