Instead of doing the Top Ten Tuesday post for today, I decided that I’m going give you all the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag instead. Here we go!
Best Book so Far in 2021
This is really tough because I feel like I’ve read some great books this year. Not all of them were released this year, so I’m going with one that was.
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2021
I can’t choose between these two!
New Release You Haven’t Read But Want To
I didn’t realize we were getting another book for this series until recently, so it wasn’t on my radar to read.
Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year
I’m excited for so many books that it’s hard to pick one. This might be the one I want to read the most, though.
Biggest Disappointment of 2021
I’m going to be honest. This book was sitting on my Kindle for years. I have mixed experiences with this author’s books. I was hoping this would be a positive one, but I could not stand the dude and the way he thought/talked. I didn’t make it past the first couple of chapters.
I don’t know how to choose between In the Company of Killers and The Mindf*ck series for biggest surprise. Both are dark romantic suspense that are thrillers with big twists that I didn’t see coming. The first involves a group of killers and the second involves a serial killer who falls for an FBI agent.

New Favorite Character
LUCY! Who knew the Prince of Darkness could be so freaking funny?
Book That Made You Cry
This book had all the feels.
Book That Made You Happy
So many books have made me happy this year…Probably because I read a lot of romantic comedies. I’m going with one of the most recent ones because I adore Meghan Quinn’s writing and she couldn’t have given Walker a better story.
Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought So Far This Year
I just love this cover. I only have it on ebook because I don’t buy many physical books.
What Books Do You Need to Read By The End of Year
I already have this book because I love Katie McGarry’s writing. This is a different genre for her, so I haven’t exactly jumped on reading it yet. I should.
So that’s it. The end. Feel free to do this tag if you want.
