Mid-Year! Time to Freak Out! | Mid-Year Book Freak Out 2020

Not tagged this year but I am just early. Aren’t you all proud! As I was planning out what to post in June I decided to take it easy and have a go at some mid year updates. It’s been a weird year so far for most of us with covid-19 happening, and even worse the police brutality in America, and it is good to look back when we can.

I cut out two questions that were about book crush and all. I just don’t do that at my ripe age of 32, lol.

wingfeathersagaI had reasonably high expectations of this rereleased fantasy middle grade book but nothing about it really worked for me unfortunately. I really wish it had because look at that cover. It is stunning.

My Review

I’d heard some things about The Library of the Unwritten but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did.

  1. Misschien vul ik hem dit jaar wel weer een keertje in. Ik had wel al een persoonlijke het jaar is half om post in gedachten. Maar die ging meer over gekke gesprekken en gebeurtenissen die ik dit jaar al beleefd heb.

  2. I honestly can’t believe that it’s already time for the mid-year freak out because how are we already in June?! But also with all the insanity that 2020 is, why are we not already in December?! 😂 I can’t wait to read The Library of the Unwritten but I was also pretty disappointed with the Wingfeather Saga… The cover looked so good but… Ugh, yeah, it just didn’t work. Great post!

  3. I love that you just tagged yourself for this. XD Perfection.

    The Goblin Emperor is AMAZING. I’m so glad that you loved it! The only other book on the 5-star list I’ve read is Iron Kissed. Of the rest, what book stands out the most in your memory? I’d love to pick one solid recommendation out of that.

    How did you decide what books “need” to be read by the end of the year?

    1. If nobody else is going to do it I might as well do it myself haha 😀

      The Goblin Emperor is one of those that sticks with you.
      I’d say The Library of the Unwritten. But also The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. because I don’t hear enough people talking about that one.

      Mostly just that came to mind right away. I did already read Clap When You Land this weekend 😀
