Thank you to Erika for tagging me!
Let’s get on with the questions…
Best book you’ve read so far in 2015
The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston. I love everything about this book.
Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2015
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan is the only ‘sequel’ I’ve read this year. I think.
New release you haven’t read yet, but want to
The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett. I have finally bought this book and I can’t wait to read it.
Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan. I am so ready for his Magnus Chase series and I love Norse mythology so much.
On the Road by Jack Kerouac. I was expecting something amazing but it’s just an awful book.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I didn’t expect it to live up to the hype but it really did.
Favorite new author (debut or new to you)
Maggie Stiefvater. I’m so in love with The Raven Boys and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and her other books.
Newest Fictional crush
Gansey from The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Or Blue from the same book. I’m not sure who I prefer.
Newest Favorite Character
Jack Reacher from Lee Child’s Killing Floor. I just really liked the character for some reason.
Book that made you cry
Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
Book that made you happy
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I completed this book a few months after Sir Terry Pratchett passed away and it made me happy to read such a wonderful book written by him.
Favorite book to film adaptation you saw this year
The Maze Runner by James Dashner was made into a very good film starring the beautiful Dylan O’Brien.
Favorite review you’ve written this year
Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)
I don’t think I’ve bought any pretty versions of books this year.
What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
So many books…
- The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
- The Death Cure by James Dashner
- The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
- The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
- The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
- Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
- The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
- The Shipping News by Annie Proulx
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
There’s so many other books that I need to read but this list gives you an indication of the amount I need to read by the 31st of December.
I’m not tagging anyone this time because I’ve done so many awards/tags in the past couple of days that people will be sick of me tagging them.
