Tag: The Mid-Year Freak Out (2020 Edition)

Last time I did this tag, I said, “I am very, very behind on tags,” and that’s still true now. So, instead of doing something that I’ve actually been tagged in, I’m redoing something I did last year.

(You can see the 2019 edition here and the 2018 edition here.)

Best book you’ve read so far in 2020?

I’m still kind of in awe at Catch and Kill.

Best sequel of 2020 so far?

The only sequel I’ve rated five stars is Heartstopper, Vol. 2, so I definitely have to go with that one!

New release you haven’t read yet, but want to?

I have a hold on The House in the Cerulean Sea and I cannot wait to read it. I’ve heard such good things!

Most anticipated release of the second half of 2020?

Honestly… probably Solutions and Other Problems. I know it’s going to make me laugh so hard I cry at least once.

Biggest disappointment?

The Bromance Book Club brought back so many bad memories from my last relationship. I was so disappointed.

Biggest surprise?

I don’t always love video game books, but Slay blew my mind.

Favorite new (to me) author?

Maybe Ngozi Ukazu? Check, Please! was so cute!

Newest fictional crush?

I didn’t have a fictional crush last year, and I still don’t. Same reason. I still read mostly YA and I just cannot have a fictional crush on someone who’s in high school.

Newest favorite character?

I don’t know if I have a hands-down favorite this year, but I feel like I could be friends with Naomi from You Deserve Each Other.

Book that made you cry?

I think the closest I’ve come to crying this year was while reading Clap When You Land.

Book that made you happy?

Jenn Bennett’s books always make me happy! Chasing Lucky was no exception.

Favorite book to movie adaptation you’ve seen this year?

I don’t know if I’ve watched even a single adaptation this year!

Favorite review you’ve written this year?

Sassy reviews are always my favorite, and I think my sassiest this year was Handbook for Mortals.

Most beautiful book you bought or received so far this year?

I’m not sure if it’s the most beautiful, but I was super excited when I found this edition of Alex, Approximately.

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

A lot. All of the ARCs I have that I haven’t read yet, to start…

I’ve seen a ton of people do this tag so far, but if you haven’t, please consider yourself tagged! What are some books you hope to read by the end of the year? What’s the best book you’ve read so far? Let’s talk in the comments!

    So many on this list that have cropped up on my radar over the last couple weeks! I just got a copy of Christina Lauren’s Twice in a Blue Moon so that’s definitely on my TBR through the end of the year. Also want to check out Clap When You Land at some point this year. Great list!

    I have so many on my “to read” list including Ronan Farrow’s. The problem is I suffered a traumatic brain injury a few years back and reading for any length of time can be difficult. My goal is 70 books this year but I feel like I’m pushing myself too hard. I’d like to get through The Butler which has been on my list for a while and I keep bypassing it. Paul Doiron’s next which is coming out the end of this month I’ve already pre-purchased.

    This made a great book for book club. There was so much to discuss! Most of us were surprised by how much we didn’t know about the Harvey Weinstein case. Definitely a great nonfiction read.
