Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Image
Today I'm taking on yet another tag :) This time, since it's basically the middle of the year, it's going to be the mid-year book freak out tag. I saw this on jessethereaders booktube, but it was created by Chami from ReadLikeWildFire and Ely from Earl Grey Books.

Questions:

1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2017.
I've read a lot of good books so far this year, but I think I'll have to go with It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover or Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Both of these books just left me wanting more, or feeling multiple feelings.


2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2017.

Since Isla and The Happily Ever After doesn't really count as a sequel, I have only read one other sequel - Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs, so I'll have to go with that.


3. New release you haven't read yet, but want to.

There are a lot, but three of those are When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus and We Are Okay by Nina LaCour.

4. Most …

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Image
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, New Adult, Fiction
Publisher: Simon & Schuster, Inc (Atria Paperback)
Pages: 376
Release date: August 2nd, 2016
Age Group: New Adult, around 16-24 [according to me]

Synopsis: Lily hasn't always had it easy, but she's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He's also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, But Ryle's complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his "no dating" rule, she can't help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love an…

The Ultimate Book Tag

Image
What better way to get started with the blog than doing a book tag? This way you can have a quick insight on which books I like etc. As you can see by the title, I decided to start off with "The Ultimate Book Tag" (created by Chapter Chicks). Also: warning, this tag is extremely long, that's why it's called The Ultimate Book Tag.

Here come the questions:
1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
No, I do not.

2. Which author's writing style is completely unique to you and why?

For this one, I'll have to go with Sonya Sones. Even though I like poetry a lot, I sometimes get confused while reading books on verse. It's not that I don't like it (I LOVE POETRY!) it's just not something I'm very used to.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Harry Potter. Okay, so I've never actually read the Twilight Saga, but honestly, Harry Potter is above everything else. One thing that I've heard about the Twi…

Hello there, fellow booklover (I'm just assuming you are one since you're here...).

Soooooo, here's a really short entry just to introduce this blog and what might be published on it.

This is my new YA-bookblog where I'll be posting reviews, challenges/tags, monthly wrap-ups and other kinds of book-related stuff! Basically everything will be book or movie related and I'll try my best to post as often as possible. I'm really excited about this and hopefully, it will turn out to be awesome! Stay tuned for updates and fun posts about my passion; books :)
