I saw this tag first over at Read All the Things, but it’s been around for years and it’s making its way around the blogosphere!
Best book you’ve read so far in 2018?
Aru Shah and the End of Time is definitely my favorite MG I’ve read this year. This book has such gorgeous writing and the best MG voice I’ve ever read. It’s the kind of book that makes me wonderfully happy and weep in jealousy at the same time. 🙂
YA is harder, but I’m going with A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews. It’s really hard not to be biased here because it’s Cait, guys (and no matter how hard we try to check our biases at the door when we review, it can’t be done completely). But I just loved this story. It broke my heart and featured Cait’s beautiful writing and it was just wonderful.
Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2018?
Obsidio was AMAZING! This was an awesome way to wrap up this series.
New release you haven’t read yet but want to?
Oh, pshaw! How about 500 of them? No? Only one? How about two?
Okay, then I’m going all the way back to the beginning of the year here and I’ll say, You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon and Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman. I won both of these, so I have no excuses. None.
Most-anticipated release for the second half of 2018?
Why do I have to wait till September for Two Dark Reigns? It’s killing me!
I’ve had a few (one sequel that sort of let me down), but for the most part I’ve been happy!
Timekeeper by Tara Sim was SO incredibly good, and I just wasn’t expecting to love it so much. Don’t get me wrong, I thought I’d like it, but this book blew me away!
Favorite new author?
Newest favorite character?
Rhys from A Quiet Kind of Thunder. First off, I love seeing a Deaf character in the spotlight. Secondly, Rhys is the kind of guy who made me smile the whole way through the book!
Books that made you happy?
I loved ALL of these books! (And the ones I’ve already mentioned.)
Favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
Love, Simon was a fantastic adaptation and it made my heart happy!
Most beautiful books you bought, received or read so far this year?
LOOK at all the prettiness!
What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
Um, this question is ridiculous. ALL of them. I mean, I know I can’t, but … all of them. Seriously, just thinking about this gives me a stomachache, so I’m not going to list them here. My blog is aptly named. I have a problem.
