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.
BEST BOOKS YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2020?
I’ve actually had a decent amount of 5 star reads this year so far which is quite interesting. But also some 4 star reads that stuck with me
Wild Country – Belle revolte – The Library of the Unwritten – The Rise and Fall of Dodo – Pages & co 2 – The Girl and the Stars – Drowned Country – Guard guards – Shorefall – Mexican gothic – Iron Kissed – The Goblin Emperor – Network Effect
BEST SEQUELS OF 2020 SO FAR
Shorefall – Pages and co 2 – Drowned Country – Iron Kissed – Network Effect
NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET, BUT YOU WANT TO
MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE OF THE SECOND HALF OF 2020?
Probably the sequel to The Library of the Unwritten.
I 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.
I’d heard some things about The Library of the Unwritten but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did.
FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR (DEBUT OR AUTHOR TO YOU)
A.J. Hackwith – Alix E. Harrow – Patricia Briggs
BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
I haven’t cried because of a book yet this year but the ending of Iron Kissed did leave me clutching my heart.
A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
Guards! Guards! made me laugh a lot.
MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT OR RECEIVED THIS YEAR?
The Compleat Discworld Atlas I bought second-hand.
WHAT 6 BOOKS DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR?
So many to be honest…
Ps: Please talk about the case of Kendrick Johnson who was murdered but his death was ruled accidental!
