When I opened my eyes today, the calendar marked July, 3rd. How come? Only yesterday did I create my blog and discovered I had no talent whatsoever for design. Only yesterday did I learn what a TBR was and decided I needed one too. Six months have come and gone in the blink of an eye. My favorite Orang-Utan knows the feeling and nicely tagged me for some freaking out time! Thank you so much, my dear! If you like bananas and brilliant posts, make sure to pop a visit to her blog!
#Best Book You’ve Read Yet in 2016
I dread that question. They say you can’t have a favorite child. Well, I say I can’t have a favorite book! Okay, I will try anyway, but don’t tell the others.
#Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2016
Although it was slightly less good than The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials brought me back to the Wicked world with lots of actions and even more questions.
#New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To
I fell in love with S.K Tremayne’s writing style so I am very excited about The Fire Child. The thing is I am waiting for the paperback version, which will be released in… 2017. Life is unfair.
#Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year
La Cour des Roses reopens August 26th. I can’t wait to go back on holiday with Emmie.
Publishers need to be more careful with their promises. 2084 was supposed to be 1984’s heir. For me, it was merely a should-have-DNFed book. I could not even bring myself to write a review.
Whenever I hear fairy tale, I run faster than a chocoholic dashes to the garden on Easter day. I never expected to enjoy reading about Snow White’s life, let alone giving the book 4 stars.
#Favorite New Author
I promise I’ll stop with The Dali Deception. Wait. No, I won’t. The story is great. Yes, I only have read one book from Adam Maxwell, but his writing is brilliant, and he is as funny as he is nice. Now all I want to do is harass him until I finally get The Dali Deception’s sequel.
#Newest Fictional Crush
I still haven’t awarded the title, but there are a few candidates. I still have 6 months to make up my mind about them. Crushes are a very big deal.
#Newest Favorite Character
#Book That Made You Cry
This story moved me to tears. I usually stay away from sad books, but it is good to open the gates once in a while.
#Book That Made You Happy
This series offers the best entertainment. Complaining and criticizing make me happy, and Throne of Glass is the perfect target to my snarky comments.
#Favorite Book to Film Adaptation
Hahahahaha. Can I change that into the worst book to movie adaptation? Because my answer is quite clear. The Maze Runner. The director better run far away, hide and pray I never find him.
This being said, I am looking forward to Me Before You. If you haven’t already done it, take a look at that cast and play the Who Played What game.
#Favorite Post You Have Done This Year
For personal reasons, my all time favorite is the Life Update post I published in May. I am also quite proud of the my first discussion post. I had lots of fun writing it but when the time came to publish it, I was suddenly shy and nervous.
#Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year
I could only get the Kindle version, but this cover is still my favorite.
#What Books Do You Need to Read by the End of the Year
This book has been on my TBR before I knew I had a TBR. I bought Never Let Me Go in 2014 and never opened it.
