A Look at What I’ve Been Reading This Year
I saw this tag on Youtube, and just had to participate. It’s a good way for me to see how this year’s reading is going so far.
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2017
Picking on is kind of impossible. Recently I read The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn and I LOVED it!
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2017
I don’t read series often. Well, I read romance series, but they are more like companion books. But my favorite this year was Pretty Face by Lucy Parker.
3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to
Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas. Why I keep dragging my feet reading this books, I have no idea. But I have heard amazing things!
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
5. Biggest disappointment
Just One Touch by Maya Banks
I love her historicals, but this one really didn’t work for me.
6. Biggest surprise
Love Thy Enemy by Katie Reus
For some reason I thought I wouldn’t like this, but I loved it.
7. Favorite new author. (Debut or new to you)
I’ve only read one of her books, Hidden Hearts,but I loved it. I can’t wait to read more from this series.
8. Newest fictional crush
Edward Rokesby from The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn
He is everything I want a romance hero to be.
9. Newest favorite character
Mary Higgs from Hidden Hearts by Olivia Dade
10. Book that made you cry
I’ve read mostly romances, and not ones that make me weepy. But Born a Crime by Trevor Noah had some very serious discussions, and while it didn’t make me cry, it made me sad.
11. Book that made you happy
Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis
12. Favorite book to film adaptation you saw this year
Beauty and the Beast was amazing. Not exactly book to film, but I’m going with it! I haven’t really seen a ton of movies this year. I loved Wonder Woman, too, but I’ve never actually read the comics.
13. Favorite review you’ve written this year
No idea! I’m skipping this one.
14. Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)
I love my copy of Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas
Girls in pretty dresses always work for me.
15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
Haha. So many! Honestly, too many to list. I do want to read The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare, Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas, An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole, and about a billion more. I’m a big mood reader, so I don’t really have books that I need to read by a specific date.
