So I have decided to join in the Mid Year Freak Out. I am truly freaking out as I realized how many series I have started but unable to finished it. At the bottom of this post are series I have started and needed to finish it. (There are still more series not listed!!). On the bright side, I have read 98 and posted reviews for 80 books on my blog since January 2017! That’s huge for me! Many books are kids books but I would say majority of the books are books I wanted to read. I focused a lot more on reading and reviewing this year so I am extremely behind on posting tags, awards, and memes. I am on a race against my TBR list, unfortunately, I read one and add two on my TBR list so the list continues to grow despite the many books I have read.
The best book you’ve read so far this year.
My REVIEW. This book is the whole package. It makes me cried and it makes me laughed harder. I saw on Twitter that they are planning a movie for it!
Best sequel of the year so far.
My REVIEW. This duology is unbelievably awesome reads! I rated both 5 stars!
New release you haven’t read yet but want to.
I am re-reading book 1, A Darker Shade of Magic, right now to get ready for my upcoming buddy read on book 2 because I love this series so much! Lila is my favorite character in book 1!
Most anticipated release of the second half of 2017.
I really wanted to read this book! The cover is cute even though I’m afraid of snakes.
Biggest disappointment of the year so far.
My REVIEW. This year I was introduced to Kasie West by the first book I read from her, By Your Side and I enjoyed how easy it is to read and how often it makes me smile that I set out to read as many books from her as I can. To this day, I have read 4 books from Kasie West. There’s the newest soon-to-be released Lucky in Love and an older release On the Fence. I loved them all!
Favorite new author (debut or new to you).
I love her writing after reading A Darker Shade of Magic. I have gone on to read This Savage Song and I loved it!
Newest fictional crush.
Newest favorite character.
Delilah (Lila) Bard from A Darker Shade of Magic. She’s brave, independent, and have the want to live. “I’m not going to die, not ’till I’ve seen it. Seen what? Everything.”
Book that made you cry.
My REVIEW. This book is a fantastic read! It makes you care for others a little more 🙂
Book that made you happy.
I loved this read! My REVIEW. It’s real life relatable about job and making it in life on your own.
Favorite book to movie adaptation you’ve seen so far this year.
My REVIEW. I like reading the book more than watching the Netflix shows. I only saw 1.5 episodes. This is the only movie related to book I have seen this year.
Favorite review you’ve written this year.
My REVIEW. I love Children’s picture books and its illustrations. I would say I love all of the picture book reviews I have written. Look under category 5-Star Books for a list of titles! I wish I can draw! 🙂 The stories are super interesting too! I have to admit that I love these books a bit more than my son hahaha..
Most beautiful book you bought or received this year so far.
My REVIEW. Graphic Novel is new to me this year and I am loving it, especially Japanese manga because the characters are so pretty to look at 🙂

I really need to stop starting a new book series that’s for sure!! I still have a few other series to finish out but at this point, I will either skip it or go back to re-reading it.
How was your mid-year freak out? I hope you all will be able to read the books you want to read!
