Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2
Hey guys! I honestly can’t believe we are in the middle of June right now. I swear June 1st was just yesterday but we’re almost at the end and July is fast approaching. I can’t get over how quick this year is just flying by. It needs to slow down.
Anyway, I have seen this tag going around on youtube and saw some blogger friends post it as well so I thought I’d hop on board and do it. I honestly forgot that I did this last year but I’m excited to do it again! I feel 2019 has been a bit of a difficult reading year for me. I’ve read 38 books so far. I feel this has been a decent reading year. I’ve had some books really stand out and others I haven’t really enjoyed. I also just got out of a bit of a reading slump which I’m glad that’s over with. I do feel I’ve read some enjoyable reads this month so that makes me very happy. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2”

The Netgalley Book Tag
¬ Link back to the tag’s creator: Kourtni at Kourtni Reads
¬ Thank and link back to the person who tagged you: I wasn’t tagged but got this from Mel @ Mel To The Any
¬ Answer the questions the best you can. If you don’t use NetGalley, you can substitute other sites or places where you get books!
¬ Tag a few people to do this too!
➽ AUTO-APPROVED: WHO’S ONE AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO READ, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT?
Most the stuff I request on Netgalley is Thrillers. So I’ll usually go for authors I know. Ruth Ware has become an author I’ll always request on Netgalley. Also Riley Sager has become an auto-request author.
➽ REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?
I always go for thrillers. So I’ll go for books I see people are talking about and said they said they really enjoyed. I also will request books from authors I’ve read from before and really enjoyed. Sometimes I’ll request books if I hear a friend talk about it.
➽ FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?
I don’t review every book I read. I do for Netgalley. I want to work on getting better at doing more reviews though. I usually review books that I feel I have a lot of thoughts on. I will do this with books I like and books I don’t like. I usually don’t do DNF reviews.
➽ BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?
I would like a badge dealing with genres I read. I would like to know how many different genres I’ve read and reviewed. I think that would be really fun.
➽ WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?
Top of my list is Lock Every Door By Riley Sager. I am so excited for this book! It is on Netgalley right now. I did end up requesting it but the publisher said right now those copies are only for journalists. She did say if I do have a book blog I could possibly get a copy close to publication. So hopefully that ends up happening. *Fingers crossed*
➽ 2018 NETGALLEY CHALLENGE: WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK THAT YOU RECEIVED AS AN ARC THAT YOU REVIEWED? IF YOU’VE NEVER RECEIVED AN ARC, WHAT’S THE LAST BOOK YOU REVIEWED?
King of Fools By Amanda Foody is the last book I received. I have not read it yet. It is part of my March TBR.
My Squirrel Days By Ellie Kemper is the last arc I just read and reviewed that I got from Netgalley.
➽ I Tag:
Anyone who uses Netgalley! I would like to see you do this tag.

5 Star Predictions
Hey guys! So I have been seeing this go around on youtube in the past and have been wanting to do this for a while now. I think the main reason I just never did is because I’ve been super nervous about this. I worry that I’ll make this list and then either I won’t like any of the books or none of them will be five stars. Sure I know what books I like but sometimes I surprise myself. Sometimes I find myself loving a book I might never have picked up and other times I’ll dislike a book I was dying to pick up. I am very excited to pick up all these books. After I read all of them I will come back and make another post with my ratings and what I ended up thinking of them. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “5 Star Predictions”
Sunshine Blogger Award
Thank you so much Destiny for nominating me for this! I am so excited to be doing this again. I love answering these questions and picking questions to ask others. I am super excited for this. So let’s dive in!
TO ACCEPT THIS AWARD, I MUST:
- Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog.
What was the first book you reviewed, and what star rating did you give it?
So I honestly don’t remember the first book I ever reviewed. I’m sure I could go on goodreads and find that out. I decided to do the first book I ever reviewed on my blog. That is Eleanor and Park By Rainbow Rowell. You can find the review here.
Would you rather DNF a book, or give it a poor star rating?
I honestly rather DNF a book. I don’t like giving books poor ratings. It’s such a crappy feeling when I don’t like a book. I hate when it was something I was looking forward to.
Where do you primarily acquire your books from? (i.e. specific bookstore, library, Amazon, etc.)
I have to say I do usually order books from amazon. I will also go to Barnes and Nobles. I also really like walking to the library so I’ll go there as well.
Have you ever/would you ever name a pet after a bookish character?
I have never named my pet after a bookish character. I can see myself naming a pet after someone from a book though. I’m still not really sure who I’d name the pet after though.
Is there a song that makes you think of a specific book?
When I first read this question I didn’t have an answer but the song from Gemina By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff just popped into my head. I believe the song is from that one. It’s the oh yeah wanna lick your lollipop song.
What was the last book to make your mouth water with its food descriptions?
Destiny, I was just telling you that Anna and The French Kiss By Stephanie Perkins had me craving crepes. I was dying for one the other week. I still haven’t gotten one and now I want it again lol.
What was the last blog you followed? Give them a shout out!
I am so bad at this. I honestly don’t remember the last blog I followed. I am sorry 😦
Do you like BookTube? If so, who are your 5 favorite BookTubers?
Yes I do like BookTube. I do have a couple of favorite youtubers whose videos I try to watch when I go on.
Here they are:
I think I’m going to do a post soon about my favorite youtubers. These are just a few of the people whose videos I try to watch when they upload. I do have others I really like as well. Plus I haven’t been watching as much lately.
Is there a bookish theme you refuse to read about, or a genre you won’t touch?
Um I don’t think so. I mean I’m willing to give everything a chance as long as it interests me. Sure there are some books I know I don’t want to read just cause I’m not into what they’re about.
Bookish candles: burn them or preserve them?
I currently own one bookish candle. I haven’t burned it yet. I feel I probably will once it gets colder out. I love burning candles.
What was the last book you hauled?
I ended up recently hauling The Last Time I Lied By Riley Sager and Somebody’s Daughter By David Bell. I went to their book signing event last Wednesday.
- If you could meet any author who would you meet?
- What is the last book you regretted buying?
- If you had the chance to write a book with any author who would you pick?
- What book made a really big impact on you?
- Where is your favorite place to read?
- If you could turn any book into a movie, what book would you pick?
- Which bookish character do you look up to and why?
- If you could live the life as any character who would you pick and why?
- Would you ever get a bookish tattoo or do you already have one? What would you get?
You’re only allowed to read one more book and that’s it, what book do you pick?
Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag
Wow I honestly can’t believe we have little over a week left of June. I find that so crazy. It feels like just yesterday that I was anxiously waiting for Bookcon to get here. Bookcon came and went and so did the rest of June. I have to say I am pretty excited because I have a vacation coming up in July but I do wish things would just slow down a little bit.
So I have been seeing a lot of people doing this mid-year freak out tag. It was created on youtube Chami & Ely. I thought it would be really fun to do. Yes I am freaking out a little bit but I’d like to share with you guys my reading experience so far for half of 2018. I am interested to see how I feel at the end of the year. So let’s dive in!
