BOOK TAG: Mid Year Book Freakout

Hello there, everyone! I saw this book tag on Youtube and I couldn’t help but take the questions and do my blog version of it!

Without further ado, let’s get started.

1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2016. 

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.


This book was everything I ever wanted and more, it made me feel everything in around 300 pages, and not many books have the ability to do  that to me.

2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2016.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas


To me, Heir of Fire was my least favorite part in the series, so I didn’t have high expectations for this book, and then, man this book fucked my head up, I seriously died 100 times over reading it. I still didn’t find the chapters of the witches necessary, but that book is absolute perfection, and I can’t believe I have to wait until September to get my hands on the sequel, Empire of Storms.


3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to.

Nothing but the one and only, The Last Star by Rick Yancey.


This book better not be like The Infinite Sea, which was complete bullshit, and I think many agree with me on that. I haven’t read any review about this book, because I want to go in completely blind, and see how this story ends.


4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.


Need I say more?


5. Biggest disappointment.


Yes, I’m the only person on the face of this bloody planet who finds this book a crappy pointless work of literature that I wasted time and money on.

Sue me if you will, I will stick to my opinion.

6. Biggest surprise.


I received an e-copy of this graphic novel for review via Netgalley, and I walked in having no expectations whatsoever, but it caught me by surprise. I flew through it, had fun and I actually got a little bit emotional when it ended, because I wanted more.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a light read that makes them smile.

7. Favourite new author. (Debut or new to you)


Yes, Gillian Flynn you guys, I only read Gone Girl by her recently, and I fell in love with how she twisted my head into ways I never knew were possible. I will be reading all her books ASAP, because this lady right here beats Agatha Christie’s best works.

I made a book playlist for this book, check it out here.


8. Newest fictional crush.


Noah Shaw, duh.

9. Newest favourite character.




10. Book that made you cry.


Yes, I cried reading Harry Potter’s first book because I realised I won’t ever get the chance to read it for the first time again.

11. Book that made you happy.


 I won’t add anything to this photo, because if you read Winter, you’ll know why it can pretty much make everyone happy.


12. Most beautiful book you’ve bought/received so far this year.


I literally sobbed flipping through this, it was far too beautiful for my eyes.


13. Books you need to read by the end of the year.

I don’t have a specific list, but I NEED to get my hands on these 3 books:

  • Illuminae
  • The Last Star
  • Simon VS. the Homo sapiens Agenda


I tag everyone to do it, please send me a link via instagram @biblioleilah or send me an e-mail:

Until my next post, stay safe!

  1. I’m so glad that I’m not the only one that didn’t like Heir of Fire, it was just so boring that I thought I would never finish it


      1. I know I’ve already read it 😀
        Do you know who I love now? Lysandra as there is just something about her that makes me super excited to see what happens in Lord of Shadows, plus I don’t really care that Aelin is with Rowan as I think now that she isn’t mainly an assassin but a Queen they suit and I’m just going to pretend I don’t miss Celaena Sardothien and Chaol Westfall ;(


      2. I LOVE Lysandra, and Rowan goes so well with Aelin! I used to love Chaol so much even when everyone was team Dorian, but then i now kinda really hate him, even though his loyalty is beyond amazing
