Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag: 2017

I’ve seen this tag around a lot recently and was thinking about doing it and then I was tagged by Raven over at Dreamy Addictions (go check her out!). Thanks Raven! Feel free to tag yourself if you’d like.

Best Book You’ve Read Yet in 2017.

26210523  27237358  30653986

I can’t pick just one, but the 3 books I have rated the highest are: Daisy in ChainsMaking Faces, and Ragdoll

Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2017.


A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. I thought this was a good ending to the series and I liked it MUCH more than the previous book.

New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To.


Strange the Dreamer. I got it once at the library, but wasn’t in the mood for it. I then won it in a giveaway so I definitely need to read it.

Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year.


Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills.

Biggest Disappointment.

33154067   23308087

Final Girls by Riley Sager and Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh.

Biggest Surprise.


Now You See Me. I had never read anything by this author before and when I read this it pulled me out of a book slump and completely consumed me.

Favorite New Author.

Sharon Bolton

Sharon Bolton (aka: S. J. Bolton)

Newest Fictional Crush.


Carter Aaron from Dating You / Hating You

Newest Favorite Character.


Lacey Flint and Mark Joesbury.

Book That Made You Cry.


Making Faces by Amy Harmon.

Book That Made You Happy.


When It’s Real by Erin Watt

Favorite Book to Film Adaptation.

I am wracking my brain and I don’t think that I’ve watched any. I saw the first episode of the Big Little Lies tv series (and then my free HBO expired) and thought it was ok, but it did not live up to my expectations.

Favorite Post You Have Done This Year.

Convince me to Buy a Kindle because you all did, in fact, convince me to buy a Kindle.

Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year.

I’ve only actually bought three books this year and I am honestly not a fan of any of their covers.

What Books Do You Need to Read by the End of the Year.

Lucky in Love by Kasie West

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter

Blind Spot by Dani Pettrey

  1. I loved both Making Faces and ACOL as well and I can’t wait to read both Now You See Me and Daisy In Chains! It will be the first time I read one of her books and I just can’t wait! 😀 And I was disappointed by Final Girls as well.

  2. Loved your answers! I love Amy Harmon’s books because they’re all pretty emotional and they always makes me cry. I haven’t read Making Faces but I’ll definitely check it out someday. I recently finished Monsters Of Verity and loved it. I can’t wait to start ADSOM! I haven’t read the Strange the dreamer yet but I really want to. I’m sorry to hear that Flame In the Mist turns out to be a disappointment for you. I really loved that book. I’m looking forward to read Final Girls and I’m hoping that it won’t disappoint me.

  3. I love this post! I keep hoping to get approved for The Good Daughter – it sounds good!
    Love Making Faces so much. I need to read When It’s Real soon. I preordered it but haven’t read it, of course.

    • Thanks! I actually won a copy of The Good Daughter on Good Reads and it arrived the other day so it’s going to be my next book after I finish my current one. I’m very excited about it. Have you heard that Karin Slaughter is going to be in the Cleveland area in August?

  4. Ahh!! I’m so looking forward to starting the Shades of Magic series. It’s been deeply buried in my endless TBR pile and I still have yet to haul it out. I just finished When Dimple Met Rishi which was so absolutely charming, and I still have quite a few Netgalley books to read and review, but I hope I’m able to begin this trilogy soon – it seems to be the big hype all over here and Goodreads!
    I look forward to reading more from you soon Stephanie… Happy July Reading 🙂

  5. Sharon Bolton is one of my very favorite authors. So much so that I will get anything she writes – don’t even have to read the blurb!
