Mid Year Freak Out Tag

I found this tag over at Christina’s blog and I decided to do it! Because what’s better than a mid year recap? Also where did half the year go already?

Best Book You’ve Read Yet in 2016

This book will go down in history as one of my all time favourite books, it gave me a serious book hangover.

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2016

This one was a bit harder to answer because I haven’t been reading any sequels to the series I am still working on. The first book that came to my mind was The Infinite Sea because I am loving The 5th Wave series!

The Infinite Sea (The 5th Wave, #2)

New Release that You Want to Read but Haven’t Read Yet

There are two for this one. Like with my previous answer, I can’t wait to read The Last Star, and I have also loved The Selection Series so I am looking forward to finishing it by reading The Crown!

  The Last Star (The 5th Wave, #3)  The Crown (The Selection, #5)

Most Anticipated Release For the Second Half of the Year

I will always be a huge Harry Potter fan. Although I had really mixed feelings about there being a new Harry Potter book, as the time approaches, I can’t lie, I’m super excited for it!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Biggest Dissapointment

After seeing this book everywhere on Instagram, I was really excited to finally start it. However it just didn’t do it for me. So naturally I was really disappointed by that.

Cruel Beauty (Cruel Beauty Universe #1)

Biggest Surprise

When I randomly picked this up I had no idea I just picked up an absolutely amazing book. I’m pretty sure I read this book in just a few hours because I literally could not put it down.

Dangerous Girls

Favourite New Author

So far I am loving Kate Collins! Her Flower Shop Mystery series is just absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to finish this series up and watch the movies.

Kate Collins

Newest Fictional Crush

Evan Walker. Do I really need to say more? If you watched the 5th Wave, or read the books, you know exactly who I’m talking about!

Newest Favorite Character

I am loving Abby Knight from the Flower Shop Mystery Series! She’s hilarious and awesome!

Mum's the Word (A Flower Shop Mystery, #1)

Book That Made You Cry

This book made me bawl my eyes out. The movie made me bawl my eyes out. This book <333.

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

Book That Made You Happy

This was given to me by the lovely author for review, and it was such a  nice surprise! The book really leaves you feeling awesome and happy. Such a great great book for anyone who is in the dating scene.

No Plus One: What to Do When Life Isn't a Romantic Comedy

Favorite Book to Film Adaptation

Again, it’s Me Before You, this movie hit me in the feels.

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

June 2016 Wrap Up

I would say that June was a good reading month! I read 8 books and am currently still on a huge roll with the reading. I’m also off work for the next two months, so I plan on tackling my TBR list big time! Only problem is, well I’m a bookworm. So naturally I find myself getting more library books and wanting to go to the bookstore, and looking at pictures on Instagram. Which only leads to a bigger TBR list!

In other news I’ve been in contact with some lovely people over at Berkley Publishing. They noticed through my Instagram that I absolutely love cozy mysteries, and contacting me to ask me some questions. In exchange they have offered me some free books! I’m really excited about this and can’t wait to get some new cozy mysteries! I’ll defintely be posting the haul once it arrives.

I read these this month:

Assholes Finish First (Tucker Max, #2)  The Unexpected Everything  Blueberry Muffin Murder (Hannah Swensen, #3)  No Plus One: What to Do When Life Isn't a Romantic Comedy  Slay It with Flowers (A Flower Shop Mystery, #2)  Rebel of the Sands (Rebel of the Sands, #1)  Dearly Depotted (A Flower Shop Mystery, #3)  Snipped in the Bud (A Flower Shop Mystery, #4)
