Although I am not freaking out per se, I found the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag on Twirling Book Princess’s blog and decided to participate. So here are my choices for the first half of the year. My first choice this year was to not freak out by reading books that I don’t want to read. I have my own game plan for books this year which is practically stress free.
1.) What is the best book you have read so far in 2021?
2.) What is the best sequel you have read so far in 2021?
I haven’t read any sequels this year.
3.) What is a new release that you haven’t read yet but want to?
4. What is your most anticipated release for the second half of the year?
5. What was your most disappointing book so far?
So far there have not been any books that have disappointed me.
6. What was your most surprising book so far?
7. Who is your favorite new author (debut or new to you)?
Reading on the beach is one of my favorite things about summer even if it is soooo hot. I’m going to hang on to the summer vibes for as long as possible. I found this book tag on Zezee with Books . The original post can be found on The Comfy Reader.
Everyone is welcome to participate! Tag Zezee, The Comfy Reader and myself so that we can see your answers.
I found the Bookshelf ABC Challenge on Annemieke’s A Dance With Books blog. She found it on Liesbet’s zwartraafje/Black Raven blog. Their links are included so make sure to visit their blogs.
I struggled with X but managed to find the rest. Most of the books are still waiting to be read. I have been buying a lot of books (and shoes) lately. Can you find a book for each letter of the alphabet on your bookshelf?
What are you reading this summer? The Summer Bucket List Book Tag was discovered on Paperbacks and Planners. Kudos to the original creator- Read by Tiffany. Visit their blogs for bookish posts. Let us know what is on your summer bucket list post.
Hope you are having a great summer!
I recently finished Queerly Beloved. The food in this book sounded delicious. There’s a recipe in the back that someone should try.
Remy and Prince Hale could set the place on fire with the sparks that fly between the. They are fiery.
I don’t think you have to stop having a meaningful life after the year is over. Some people don’t give themselves time to discover what they really want. I’m still trying to figure out how to pay bills and write full-time. Someday, I will be brave and take the leap for good.
While looking for a book tag that would be appropriate for Pride Month, I found a great book tag on Cody Levi’s blog The Bookworm in Me. Since participating in the Book Riot Read Harder Challenges, I have read more books with LGBT+ characters or by LGBT+ authors. Kudos to the authors! I’m proud of you!
So I am also glad to have a more inclusive list of books on the already read list and the TBR list. No regrets.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the book tag. Please tag Cody Levi and I so that we can see your answers.
1. A book with a gay main character
Nancy is asexual. Kade is transexual. Neither fit the role that other people want. They are who they are and like themselves.
2. A book with a lesbian main character
Gilda is a lesbian vampire. She might be one of my favorite characters in literature.
3. Favorite LGBT+ side couple
In Walks with Spirits, Two Rivers Running finally finds love. It was one of my favorite things to happen in the book.
Lauren’s Boookshelf hosted the Would You Rather: Extreme Book Lovers Edition. Don’t forget to visit her blog! Tag Lauren and myself so that we can see your responses.
1.Would you rather have a friend who loses your books, or one who dog-ears them?
Dog-ears are terrible. I know I know. However, I would rather have a friend that dog-ears books than a friend who loses my books. It’s a little hearbreaking to lose a book.
2. Would you rather secretly love a book everyone else hates, or secretly hate a book everyone else loves?
I would rather secretly hate a book that everyone loves. It’s not really a secret that I dislike Gone Girl a little bit.
3. Would you rather be stuck on a very long plane or train ride without a book?
I need a distraction on the plane so I forget that I am thousands of feet in the air. I would rather not be stuck anywhere without a book but I would choose the train ride.
4. Would you rather have dinner with your favorite author or your favorite character?
Most of my favorite characters are monsters and I don’t want to become dinner. So I would rather have dinner with my favorite author in order to have a chance of survival. Stephen King or Stephen Graham Jones would be interesting to have dinner with.
5. Would you rather date a character you have a crush on or your crush from real life?
At the moment, I don’t have any book crushes. Honestly, I don’t think I have ever had a book crush. I would rather date a crush from real life.
6. Would you rather have your favorite book turned into a movie, or your favorite movie turned into a book?
