Mid Year Freak Out Tag

OK so the Mid-Year Freak Out Tag has been doing the rounds and I thought that I would add mine to the world. This tag was originally created by ReadLikeWildfire and I have linked her original video here.

So let's get started...

1. Best book you've read this year so far?


Street Song
Street Song by Sheena Wilkinson- This book was definitely a raw YA story that touched on issues that are not often mentioned in YA so it was therefore quite special to me and will probably make my favourites list. 














2. Best sequel you've read this year so far

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #2)For this, I have chosen Hollow City by Ransom Riggs because there was so much character development in this book that it made it very special.

















3. New releases you haven't read yet but want to.

ReleaseRelease by Patrick Ness- I love Patrick Ness and have had it since it was released (no pun intended) but I haven't had time so hopefully, I will read it soon.















4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
Turtles All the Way Down

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green- IT'S A NEW JOHN GREEN BOOK!















5. Biggest Disappointment

Milk and HoneyMilk and Honey by Rupi Kaur- There is so much hype around this book and it just did not live up to the hype for me. 















6. Biggest Surprise 

We Come ApartWe Come Apart- It's not that I was expecting this to be terrible but I wasn't expecting to start and finish this book on the last night. 















7. Favourite new author


Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)
Laini Taylor- She is just great and her writing is so beautiful!
















8. Newest fictional crush

Image result for clay jensenClay Jensen from 13 Reasons Why- I think this is more from the TV show version but they both quite lovable. 















9. Newest favourite character

America #1America from the Marvel comics- I do really like her character and I am very happy that she has her own series!















10. Book that made you cry 

I don't really have an answer for this question so here is a cat gif...




11. A book that made you happy.

Weird Things Customers Say in BookshopsWeird Things Customers Say in Bookshops- it made me laugh. 

















12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year.

Image result for nick and norah infinite playlistNick & Norah's Infinite Playlist- Although I did not really like the book, I found the film to be a very good adaptation that probably translated better in a film than it did in book form. 














13. Favourite review you've written this year

Maybe my Silver Stars review just because I love the Soldier Girls series so anything that allows me to promote how good this series is good!

14. Most beautiful book you've bought so far this year

Caraval (Caraval, #1)
I mean come on...

















15. What books do you need to read by the end of this year?

Truth or DareProbably Truth or Dare by Non Pratt as I have heard so many good things about it. 
















OK, so that's it. What are some of your favourite books of the year? Leave them in the comments below.

See you soon, 

Amy

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

















Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


Theatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want …

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
