Best Books, Sequels, Releases, Most Anticipated, EVERYTHING about My 2017 Reads | Mid-Year Book Freakout TAG

I saw this over on AJ's blog and liked it so much that I decided to do it as well! I'm definitely having a mid-year book freakout at the moment because I've barely read 50 books this year so far! 

All time low! Don't know what's happening. I gotta catch up.

#1. Best book read this year
This is very hard to say, I guess THE WOMEN IN THE WALLS by Amy Lukavics. I loved this so much that I can't stop talking about it!

#2. Best sequel this year
You guys probably know I don't do sequels, I've actually only read one so far this year and wasn't very impressed with it, WAKING GODS by Sylvain Neuvel. Ancient space robots though, yeahhhh

#3. New release I haven't read yet, but want to
DEAR MARTIN by Nic Stone. I am working on it! I'm waiting for the perfect time because this book will break my heart and I want to give it the fairest shot possible. Can't afford to not love this!

#4. Most anticipated release for second half of year
WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE by Lana Popovic. *eye emoji* I'm waiting. I love witchy books.

#5. Biggest disappointment
ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis. What happened there? I love space and I was really looking forward to loving this, but I really, really did not.

#6. Biggest Surprise
THE HOLLOW GIRL by Hillary Monahan. I am so impressed with this book. It really shouldn't have suprised me that I ended up loving this to be honest because I have such a long history of adoring witchy books, haha.

#7. Favorite new author (Debut or new to me)
Thea de Salle! I'm neckdeep in her NOLA nights series and I need more people to talk about this with, I'm dying here! If you love intersectional romance, pleaseeeeeeee

#8. Newest fictional crush
Sol DuMont from THE KING OF BOURBON STREET by Thea de Salle. Duh. My flamboyant bisexual boyfriend is everything.

#9. Newest favorite character
*looks to the floor* Sol DuMont...

#10. Book that made me cry
Mh, I don't think there was one. Still waiting on a tear-jerker.

#11. Book that made me happy
HOW TO MAKE A WISH by Ashley Herring Blake. Love me some black biracial bisexual representation.

#12. Favorite book to film adaptation
I HAVEN'T SEEN A SINGLE ONE THIS YEAR! At least none of a book that I actually read. I'm terrible at this tag.

#13. Favorite post I've done this year
I've had the honor of hosting a Q&A with an author I admire, Hannah Moskowitz, after lovingggggg her Deaf bisexual romance WILD.

#14. Most beautiful book I've bought or received this year

  • Physically? The German edition of LAST SEEN by Lucy Clarke is the prettiest book I've ever seen. 
  • Content-wise? HOW TO MAKE A WISH by Ashley Herring Blake

#15. Book I need to read by end of the year
More like bookS.
  • TASH HEARTS TOLSTOY by Kathryn Ormsbee
  • THE LADY OF ROYALE STREET by Thea de Salle
  • THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins
  • THE DIVINERS by Libba Bray
  • DARK VISIONS by L.J. Smith
... so many and that's only like the top six. I'm working on it.

If you decide to do the tag, please link it in the comments so I can stop by and read!

Top 10 2017 YA Debuts I'm the Most Excited For feat. Angie Thomas, Rebecca Barrow & more | Top 10 Tuesday

This was the hardest blog post I ever made. There are about 40 books in my 2017-releases shelf on Goodreads in this very moment and I could think of at least 10 more. It was awful to have to choose. A-W-F-U-L

This blurb very much sounds like magical realism, painting, and queerness and I am very much ready for that. Goodreads

ONE OF US IS LYING by Karen McManus
Honestly I cannot get enough of books with unreliable narrators. Bathe me in them. Goodreads

ALLEGEDLY by Tiffany D. Jackson 
I've been lusting after this for months now. The premise of the protagonist having murdered a child is the most interesting thing and I just want to read it! That combined with fantastic reviews from author friends who have been able to get an early copy.... *hisses* I want it. Goodreads

THE LOVE INTEREST by Cale Dietrich
Okay but this book you guys. Two guys compete for one girl and end up falling in love with each other. I ache for this. I need this in my life. Goodreads

THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas
With an almost instant movie deal this book is probably going to be one of the most important releases of 2017. It's inspired by Black Lives Matter and tackles police brutality. Goodreads

This is about girls who can manipulate beauty through magic and the second this blurb went live, my body was ready for this. Omg. Goodreads

GIRL OUT OF WATER by Laura Silverman
A one-armed swoony love interest. From that blurb I can already tell that I'm going to fall for this guy. Goodreads

I love reading about accidental pregnancies. This one also features adoption and I'm just like ????? give this book to me now?? Goodreads

Oh how I long for more books about elemental magic! Let's bring those back I love this so much, so excited to read it. Goodreads

LIKE WATER - Rebecca Podos
This bisexual performing mermaid had me lurking the second I read the blurb. I can't wait!!! Goodreads

Which 2017 debuts are you most excited for?
