Saw this tag on 26 Countless Possibilities and decided to do it myself!
Best Book Read in 2016?
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Why did it take me so long to read this gem of a book?
Special shout out to Ruined, An Ember in the Ashes, and Whistling Past the Graveyard--other five star reads.
Best Sequel You've Read so Far in 2016?
I've only read 5 sequels so far, but I really enjoyed The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski. Although, I'm currently reading The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater and feel it will most definitely become a favorite.
New Release You Haven't Read Yet But Want To?
There are way too many. But I would especially love to get my hands on Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton.
Most Anticipated Release(s) for Second Half of 2016?
Harry Potter and The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany.
A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I didn't expect to love it as much as I did! My review.
New Favorite Author?
Sabaa Tahir, the author of the wonderful An Ember in the Ashes.
Newest Fictional Crush?
I'm with Sierra on this one. The Raven Boys! Yes, yes, all of them. Maybe Ronan not as much as the others, though. Love him, but I fear we would clash quite a bit.
Newest Favorite Character?
Ahem. I have more than one, thank you. Starla from Whistling Past the Graveyard. Blue and The Raven Boys from The Raven Boys.
Book That Made You Cry?
HAHAHA. No. I have not read a book that could penetrate my cold, dead heart.
Whistling Past the Graveyard was touching, though.
Book That Made You Happy?
Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
Most Beautiful Book You Bought So Far This Year?
I bought this really pretty edition of Pride and Prejudice.
What Books Do You "Need" to Read by the End of the Year?
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. (I'm on chapter 3. We'll see what happens).
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
+ a gazillion others.
