Hi everyone, so how has your week been? Mine has been supa busy and that is hwy this post is a little late 😦 But I am finally getting time to sit down and write, I missed it so much, and I am soooo excited to do this tag!

I was inspired to do this tag by Bookish Babbles, here is a link to her post which is awesome so be sure to check it out ->Bookish Babbles Mid Year Freak Out Tag

And of course I need to give a shout out to the original creators of this tag, who I believe are Readlikewildfire and Earl Grey Books on Youtube. Sp shout out to you guys for creating this awesome tag.

So lets get started…

Best book of the year so far?


Personally, I loved ACOWAR. Not only was it the epic conclusion to one of my favorite series but it is also written by one of my favorite authors, the amazing Sarah J Maas.

Best sequel you have read?

Lord of Shadows.jpg

I haven’t actually read that many sequels this year but my favourite has to be Lord of Shadows because anything Cassandra Clare writes is pure gold.

New releases you haven’t read but want to?

Ministry of Utmost happiness

I really want to read the Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy, this isn’t the kind of novel I generally gravitate towards, mainly because it isn’t a YA novel, but I skimmed the first few pages of the book one day at work and I was hooked.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year?

Definitely tower of dawn by Sarah J. Maas. I absolutely adore Sarah’s writing no matter what book it is, so any new release from her is an anticipated release 🙂

Biggest Disappointment?

Shade me.jpg

I think out of all of the books I read this year, Shade Me by Jennifer Brown was my least favorite. The plot just seemed to drag and I didn’t enjoy any of the characters within the novel.

Biggest Surprise?


Frostblood by Elly Blake, for sure. I bought this book on an impulse and it just sat on my shelf for a while until I picked it up on a whim and boy am I glad I did.

Favorite new author?

Ashley Poston the author of Geekerella. Her level of awesomeness is inspiring.

Newest fictional crush?


Newest favourite character?

The bad-ass Emma Carstairs. I want to be her and her best friend at the same time.

Books that made you cry?


Favorite book to movie adaptation that you’ve seen this year?


Has to be Everything, Everything, the movie was adorable, and was a fairly accurate representation of the book. Definitely worth a watch!

Favorite review you have written this year?


For me it has to be my review of Geekerella by Ashley Poston. It was one of my first reviews on this blog and the first one where I started playing with photography and overall I just worked really hard on it and I am proud of it 🙂

Most beautiful book you have bought or received this year?

Don’t make me choose. I love them all!

  • Legend by Marie Lu
  • Young Elites by Marie Lu
  • The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Tootles, Gaby 🙂

  1. Great Post! I love the lights hanging in front of your bookshelf – super stylish 😀 Same here, I’ve been looking forward to the release of The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. However, lately I haven’t been reading very good reviews about it, but I’m definitely still going to check it out and see for myself.
    You’re right, the Caraval cover is so enchanting!
    I look forward to reading more from you in the future Gaby! Tootles 🙂

  2. Can we just talk about Nick Robinson though? He is so cute. Great pick for Olly in Everything, Everything. Wish they had made it longer to include more of Maddy and Olly getting to know each other. The astronaut was my favorite character in the movie!

    1. Not gonna lie, I watched the movie initially because he was in it 🙂 I felt the same way, their relationship developed so well in the book and it is so sad that it wasn’t kept that way in the movie. And the astronaut gave me life! That scene where he taps the straw of the milkshake against his face killed me!
