This is sort of an annual tradition for most book bloggers, I think– taking time in the middle of the year to reflect on the books we’ve read in the past six months.
I have had a fabulous year of reading as of right now and that is making me really excited for the rest of the year. Last year was just okay, but I have read some truly splendid books in 2019.
Let’s get into the tag!
Best Book of 2019 So Far
I read Sky in the Deep (review here) a couple weeks ago and I am still reeling from it. It was magnificent. Everything about it was wonderful and I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about it for a very, very long time (if ever).
Best Sequel of 2019 So Far
I *almost* used this for Best Book So Far but realized it fits this question too so this is where it’s going.
It had been a long time since a book made me feel the feels when I read this and it truly delivered in every department.
Also the last book in the trilogy is out in November and I AM NOT READY. If Holly hurts my son I will come for her.
Most Anticipated Release of the Second Half of 2019
Yes I just need to read about Cardan resolving all the problems he started.
And he has a lot of work to do.
Biggest Disappointment of 2019 So Far
Yeah this was…terrible, actually. Sure, parts were good, but I had expected something entirely different and I didn’t get it. What I did get was not something I liked. Alejandro deserved better; that’s all I’m saying.
Books to Read by the End of 2019
I’m a mood reader, really, so I don’t have a set list to read. There’s a few upcoming releases I want to read ASAP but other than that, I don’t have anything I’m forcing myself to read this year.
I do want to read Midnight Beauties by Megan Shepherd, The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black, and Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi, specifically. There are more that I’m currently working on but those are just a few!
I’m tagging anyone who hasn’t yet done this this year and wants to!
What’s the best book you’ve read this year? The biggest disappointment? Let me know in the comments!
