2019 Mid-Year Freakout Book Tag

This book tag is to reflect on my reading so far this year. I’ve read 38 books during the first half of 2019, seven of which have been rereads. I’m not counting any rereads when answering these questions.

1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2019
    The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks

2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019
    The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks

3. New release you haven’t read yet but want to
    The Near Witch by V. E. Schwab

4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
    The Burning White by Brent Weeks, and Starsight by Brandon Sanderson

5. Biggest disappointment
    Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson—I expected this to be my new favorite book but it ended up having a different plot than I thought it did, so I didn’t love it as much as I expected to

6. Biggest surprise
    Elantris by Brandon Sanderson—I expected this to be mediocre but I ended up loving it

7. Favorite new author (debut or new to you)
    Brent Weeks

8. Newest fictional crush
    No one—I don’t really have fictional crushes, plus I haven’t read a lot of good ones yet this year

9. Newest favorite character
    Kell from A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

10. Book that made you cry
      Safely Endangered Comics by Chris McCoy—I cried from laughing so hard

11. Book that made you happy
      One Day in December by Josie Silver

12. Most beautiful book you’ve acquired so far this year
      The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

13. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
      Other than my anticipated releases mentioned above, my current plans are Warbreaker, The Rithmatist, the Reckoners trilogy, the third White Sand graphic novel, and the rest of the short stories by Brandon Sanderson; and hopefully I’ll also get to the whole Chronicles of Narnia series by C. S. Lewis.
