Mid-year Book Freakout
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2014.
C - Ignite me by Tahereh Mafi. Do I have to explain?
E - This is so hard. I absolutely hate myself for coming up with this question. It's a tie between Every Breath, These Broken Stars and Jane Eyre...I think.
2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2014.
C - IGNITE ME BY TAHEREH MAFI. JUST DON'T EVEN.
E - Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. Words cannot even begin to describe my feels for that book.
3. New release you haven't read yet, but want to.
C - Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken/Braken/Brakken?
E - The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings. I've been excited about this one for months, but I just haven't bought it yet!
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
C - The Retribution of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkins (DYING DYING DYING)
E - Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. I NEED THIS, I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW.
5. Biggest disappointment.
C - City of Heavenly Fire by Cassie Clare just because I haven't even read it. It is a disappointment that the series was published. Was that too harsh? I just really don't like that series anymore haha. No hard feelings Cassie Clare!
E - City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. I say this was a disappointment, but really, I had no hopes for this or Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge- I really, really disliked this book.
6. Biggest surprise.
C - Now if i told you that wouldn't be a surprise, wouldn't it?
E - Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. You may know that I adore this book, but going into it I really wasn't sure I'd like it.
7. Favourite new author. (Debut or new to you)
C - Umm? Rick Yancey? Not anyone really.
E - Uh...I don't know! Maybe Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner because THESE BROKEN STARS.
8. Newest fictional crush.
C - Evan from the Fifth Wave. I actually am not that connected to him but he has grown on me.
E - James Mycroft from Every Breath by Ellie Marney. I love him waaaaaaaay more than I should.
9. Newest favourite character.
C - Cassie from the Fifth Wave! She is probably one of my favourite YA female leads. Right next to Rose Hathaway.
E - Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass. Do I even need to explain this?
10. Book that made you cry.
C - No book has made me cry this year but the award for the waterfall book goes to Allegiant by Veronica Roth
E - I've been avoiding sob-worthy books so far this year, but I suppose I teared up in The Book Thief a bit. (I cried way more in the movie)
11. Book that made you happy.
C - The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey (DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LAUGHED?)
E - Empower by Jessica Shirvington. It was just such a brilliant ending to an amazing series!
12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year.
C - Divergent- I've grown to hate the sequels of this series but that movie wasn't bad at all!
E - This is a hard one for me. It's a tie between The Book Thief and The Fault in Our Stars. I adored both of them so, so much.
13. Favourite review you've written this year.
C - Rebel and Reboot Joint review!
E - Every Breath, I think.
14. Most beautiful book you've bought so far this year (or received)
C - Rebel and Reboot by Amy Tintera (They actually look so fabulous i might cry.)
E - Another tie! This time between Ignite Me and Prisoner of Night and Fog. I bought both of these books in hardback, which is something I never do so I adore them very much.
15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
C - The Retribution of Mara Dyer Again. I need this book. I need it.
E - SO MANY. I definitely want to get to the Lord of the Rings, some more classics, some Neil Gaiman and many, many others.
