Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag – 2022

I was supposed to do this in June but I was recovering from covid and then things got crazy busy! SO let’s do it now since we are now in July.

BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2022

I don’t have many 5 star reads this year. Guncle made me laugh and hurt my heart at the same time and it was my most recent 5 star read, so it’s my favorite so far!

BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2022

I know this one was published at the tail end of 2021 but it is still the best sequel I’ve read in 2022!

NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET, BUT WANT TO

I just read my first book by Tessa Bailey and loved it. I so want to read this one, hopefully I can borrow it sometime this year.

MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR

I’m a broken record at this point! I think you’ve seen this book on so many of my TTT TBR lists. 😅 SOON!! I can hardly wait!

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

I was bummed I didn’t like this one especially because I thought the first was so wacky, wild and funny! For this one the humor wore out for me – maybe I wasn’t in the mood for it? Not sure.

BIGGEST SURPRISE

This one surprised me with how much I ended up liking it! The dog was just a fun, sassy character that made the whole book wholesome and funny.

FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR (debut or new to you)

I enjoyed this book a lot and look forward to reading the next book and other books that author writes! And come on – look at that cover!!

NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH

How could I not crush on Brendan? I like a guy who can fix things, build things, not afraid of working hard and a generous lover! 🤷🏻‍♀️

NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER

I love an antiheroine – especially one as snarky as Violet.

BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY

Anything with grief, dealing with abuse, broken families…UGH…these books made my heart hurt so much.

BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY

Romance makes me happy and I had to throw in Guncle again because the kids made me happy.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT SO FAR THIS YEAR (or received)

I wish I had a copy of A Magic Steeped in Poison – I borrowed it from the library. But I did just get a copy of Ramon and Julieta. I love the colors!

WHAT BOOKS DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR?

FAVORITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION YOU’VE SEEN THIS YEAR

Heartstopper is so heart-felt and sweet! You can’t just help but melt as the characters fall in love.

  1. I keep hearing amazing things about The Guncle! It sounds like a fantastic tearjerker and I love me one of those 😂 I also really enjoyed Our Violent Ends too and thought it was a great sequel and I loved A Magic Steeped in Poison—I’m so excited for the sequel! I’m hoping to pick up Violet Made of Thorns very soon and I can’t wait to meet our MC 😍 I hope you continue to have an amazing reading year, Yolanda!

  2. Great post! I also thought four aunties was a disappointing – I was really looking forward to it after loving dial a for aunties but yeah, it just wasn’t it. and omg yes the cover for a magic steeped in poison is just breathtaking!!
    I loved babel and hope you do too! I’m also really looking forward to reading blood marked, hopefully soon!
