Yay, a tag! I know that it’s not the middle of the year anymore, but whatever, it doesn’t really matter.
Thank you so much Erika for tagging me! (You know, Erika, from Erika in Bookventureland. She’s pretty awesome, go check her blog out cause she redesigned it and now it looks super fancy and cool ) 😉
Best book you’ve read so far in 2015
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. I originally had A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, but then i read Queen of Shadows a week ago, and so yeah, i changed it.
Best Sequel You’ve Read in 2015
I haven’t really read many sequels this year, but I did love Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which is the sequel to White Hot Kiss.
New release that you haven’t read yet but want to
The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead. I’m waiting until it comes out in Paperback to buy it, so it matches my other books. Vanity over here. I know.
Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
Winter by Marissa Meyer! Ahhhhhh, i’m so pumped for this book!
Runner ups: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan, November 9 by Colleen Hoover, and Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Towering by Alex Flinn. I love Alex Flinn’s fairy tale retellings, but this one just didn’t click with me.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. I had to read this book for school, and i really was dreading having to read it. The first page was soooo boring. Eventually, i had to force myself to read it, and i was surprised at how good it was.
Favorite New Author
Sophie Kinsella and Colleen Hoover! Christine from PolandbananasBOOKS on YouTube was just getting into these two authors, so i decided to give them a read and both of these authors are my contemporary queens! (Along with Morgan Matson of course.)
New Fictional Crush
Well, i don’t really have any from this year, unless you count Rowan from Queen of Shadows…but he was my crush last year in Heir of Fire. I’m just going to go with Roth from White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I wouldn’t say i have a crush on him, but wowzers, he’s hot.
Newest Favorite Character
All of Sophie Kinsella’s Hysterical Female Protagonists, especially Emma from Can You Keep A Secret though.
Book That Made You Cry
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I usually go with the Fault in Our Stars, but i tried to keep this tag based on the books i’ve read this year only.
Book That Made You Happy
My True Love Gave To Me by Stephanie Perkins and Co. This was the best holiday book ever. There are 12 holiday stories from 12 different authors, and i just loved this one so much.
Favorite Book to Film Adaptation You Saw This Year
I’ve only seen two, Unbroken and Silver Linings Playbook, Unbroken Movie wasn’t that good, so i guess Silver Linings Playbook, though it wasn’t the best either.
Favorite Book Review You’ve Written
I kind of liked my July Wrap Up and my Queen of Shadows reviews, (I finally discovered how to use bold and colors)

Queen of Shadows: Click Here
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year (Or Received)
Well, i would say Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas, but i already used that one, so let’s go with A Court of Thorns and Roses. Same author so…
