Tags: Book Personality Challenge + Mid-Year Freak Out

I wasn’t tagged to do the Book Personality Challenge, but I saw that Gerry did it and it looked like a lot of fun, so I just went right ahead and stole it.

What is your MBTI personality type?
I’m a turbulent ISFJ! Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging – “The Defender.” The turbulence basically means that I’m a “self-conscious perfectionist” and I don’t know if that could possibly be more accurate if it tried.

I’m going to copy Gerry here for a second and annotate my personality description.

(My manager and my boss didn’t come in on Thursday, so this is what I did at work. Whoops. I also had my work bestie take the test to find out her MBTI type and we’re the same!)
If you were a character in a book, what would be some of your character strengths and flaws?
I’m not a character in a book, but I’m pretty sure all of these are 100% correct and that’s a little bit creepy.
  • supportive
  • reliable and patient
  • imaginative and observant
  • enthusiastic
  • loyal and hard-working
  • good practical skills


  • humble and shy
  • take things too personally
  • repress their feelings
  • overload themselves
  • reluctant to change
  • too altruistic

Do any authors share your personality type?
Nope! But here are some celebrities who do.

What fictional characters share your personality type?

If you were a character in a book, what job would you have?
Apparently I’m on the right track since ISFJs tend to do well in the medical field! If I were a book character, I might also be a teacher, a social worker, or a volunteer at a shelter, food bank, or school.

What personality type would complete your OTP?
According to personalityrelationships.net, I am best paired off with an ESFP or ESTP.

Who are some fictional characters that would complete your OTP?



I can’t say that I’m really too excited about any of these choices!

I wasn’t actually tagged to do this one, so I’m not going to turn around and tag anybody either. That said, please link back to me if you decide to do this tag! I’d love to see your answers.

I’ve seen a million and one people do the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag and I was so happy to actually be tagged by Bibi to do it! I really enjoy freaking out about books, so here it goes…

1. Best book you’ve read this year?
I’m going to say it’s a toss-up between The Kiss Quotient and Love and Other Words. I also really loved Starry Eyes and Alex, Approximately. And if I’m expanding to four, I should probably just really go for it and also include Little Fires Everywhere and the entire Raven Cycle.

2. Best sequel you’ve read in 2018?
Definitely The Dream Thieves!

3. New release you haven’t read yet but want to?
Well, everybody in the world is talking about how amazing Circe is and I’m pretty mad at myself for not choosing it as my Book of the Month. Also, literally every book that’s sitting unread in my bedroom.

4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year?
All of them? But really, What If It’s UsJosh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating, Vengeful, City of Ghosts, The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, My Plain Jane… I could go on…

5. Biggest disappointment?
Easily Distrust. Other one-star books include Torn Hearts, Axl, and Before I Knew.

6. Biggest surprise?
Maybe The Brightsiders? I was kind of indifferent to Queens of Geek but I ended up absolutely adoring The Brightsiders. I was also really surprised at how much I enjoyed Bro Code!

7. Favorite new-to-you or debut author?
Hands down, the best debut I’ve read this year has been The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. Other debuts I also really liked were Love Scene, Take Two by Alex Evansley, A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole, and Frat Girl by Kiley Roache. For new-to-me authors, Jenn Bennett, Shaun David Hutchinson, and Maggie Stiefvater.

8. Newest fictional crush?
Michael Phan from The Kiss Quotient!

9. Newest favorite character?
Every single Raven boy.

10. Book that made you cry?
Have I actually cried over a book this year? I guess I teared up a little bit while reading Head Over Heels by Serena Bell? Oh, I think Love and Other Words also made me cry.

11. Book that made you happy?
Wallbanger was so funny!

12. Favorite book-to-film adaptation?
The only adaptation I’ve seen this year is Love, Simon but I really liked it!

13. Favorite post you have done this year?
I really enjoyed coming up with my summer TBR (I think I’ll do one for all the seasons now). I also liked my post about BookCon since it sparked a lot of discussion.

14. Most beautiful book you’ve bought this year?
Probably Wild Beauty, but I haven’t read it yet!

15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
Please reference my sixteen mile-long TBR.

I think at this point, everyone that wants to do this one has probably done it. But if you haven’t, please consider yourself tagged and link back to this post so I can see your answers!

    I might steal the Book Personality Challenge from you, continuing in this tradition of theft 😀 I have no idea what I am; I’ve never taken a personality test like this before, so it’ll be a true learning experience.

    And the avatars are so cute! I want to know what fictional characters I’m like! ^_^

    I love all the Raven Boys too, so I’m not at all surprised you loved Dream thieves! Also, Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is very high on my most anticipated reads as well. 😉 Excellent post! Congrats on reading 100 books thus far (you’re really ripping through them haha!)

    I’m just going back through all my emails and I can’t believe I missed the notification of this!

    You are a machine with all your book reading! Are you a cyborg who doesn’t need sleep? It’s ok, you can tell me.

    Love the commentary on the MBTI – it’s funny isn’t it what they say about personalities?! Some stuff I’m like sure… and others it’s worryingly spot on!
