July 11th, 2022
Sorry, but I have to say it, how are we already half-way through 2022? Time moves so fast but I’ve had an amazing reading year so far. Here’s a little look back at how it’s been. This tag was originally created by Chami.
Best Book You’ve Read In 2022 So Far
The Island of Missing Trees will be hard to beat.
Best Sequel You’ve Read In 2022 So Far
It’s rare I enjoy the sequel just as, if not more than the first, but I definitely did with The Bride Test.
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To
I can’t believe I still haven’t read Book Lovers, but hopefully I’ll get the opportunity soon!
Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half Of The Year
Who isn’t looking forward to the return of Carrie Soto?
I’m so sad about not loving Grown Ups, but I would still like to give Marian Keyes a second chance.
This was such a random decision to request this on Netgalley because I’ve really not loved Christina Lauren in the past, but I’m so glad I picked up Something Wilder. It was so entertaining.
Favourite New Author (Debut Or New To You)
I’ve read all three of Helen Hoang’s books this year, and I enjoyed all of them. I’m just sad because I’ve got to wait for something new!
Newest Fictional Crush
Adam. That’s it.
Newest Favourite Character
I just fell in love with Kya (marsh girl).
Book That Made You Cry
I don’t normally cry, but I guess I came closest to that whilst read Ghosts, because there’s a side story in this that hit really close to home.
Book That Made You Happy
I spent the entire time I was reading Heartstopper gushing, squealing, and smiling from ear to ear!
The Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought So Far This Year
I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful book from the author. Joan is out next week. The American cover doesn’t do it justice.
What Books Do You Need To Read By The End Of The Year?
I can not let another Summer go by without reading The Count Of Monte Cristo.
Finally, Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You’ve Seen So Far?
Honestly, I’ haven’t seen any. I did watch Heartstopper last week, but I can’t say I enjoyed it. They definitely work better as graphic novels, I’m afraid I found the show quite cringey (perhaps it’s my age, lol). But there’s a few I’m excited to see, including Persuasion which I’m quite intrigued by…
Siren – Sweaters and Raindrops
Amanda – Your Book Friend
Jordyn – Birdie’s Book Nook
