I found some of my 5-star reads this year for the #midyearbookfreakouttag! Thanks so much Ally @the.imperfect.library! This was a fun tag so I also made a post on my blog! Link in my bio📚
1. Best book you've read so far in 2017?
➡️ "Human Acts" by Han Kang. But "Kitchen", "Pachinko", "Homegoing", and "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" are also high up on the favorites list.
2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2017?
➡️ I read so few series! I've read book 3 in Nesbø's Harry Hole-series though, that's kind of a sequel.
3. New release you haven't read yet, but want to?
➡️ "Men Without Women" by Haruki Murakami. Probably will wait for the paperback.
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year?
➡️ I'm bad at keeping track of new releases.
5. Biggest disappointment?
➡️ There hasn't really been any? I guess "Milk and Honey" if I have to mention one. It wasn't bad but I think the hype just raised my expectations way too high for this one.
6. Biggest surprise?
➡️ "Six Four" by Hideo Yokoyama. Loved it!
7. Favourite new author (debut or new to you)?
➡️ Han Kang and Margaret Atwood💞
8. Newest fictional crush?
➡️ Idk about crush but I have a soft spot for Victor from "Vicious".
9. Newest favourite character?
➡️ Loved Rebecca from du Maurier's "Rebecca". Such a well-written, twisted character and she wasn't even alive.
10. Book that made you cry?
➡️ "The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories", "Do Not Say We Have Nothing", and "Pachinko", to mention a few haha.
11. Book that made you happy?
➡️ "Mostly Void, Partially Stars". I love WTNV💜
12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year?
➡️ Honestly haven't watched that many but it'll have to be "A Monster Calls".
13. Favourite review you've written this year?
➡️ I liked how my reviews for "Human Acts", Kitchen", and "TLWTASAP" came out.
14. Most beautiful book you've bought (or received) so far this year?
➡️ 50th-Anniversary Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of "The Master and Margarita"😍
15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
➡️ Wow, there are many! "Sleeping Giants", "It", and "The Accusation", just to mention some.
