2014 Mid-Year Book Freakout


I've noticed some of my favorite book bloggers are participating in the 2014 Mid-Year Book Freakout survey and although it's past mid-year now I'd still like to throw in my two cents.  So here we go - on to the survey!

1. Best book you've read so far in 2014.

2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2014.

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

Downfall by Rob Thurman - I love the Cal Leandros series!

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

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater - the third installment of The Raven Cycle!

5. Biggest disappointment.


6. Biggest surprise.

I was most surprised by how much I fell in love with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

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

Anne-RaeVasquez, Cristin Terrill, and Trent Reedy

8. Newest fictional crush.

Probably the same as the answer to question nine - Atticus O'Sullivan from The Iron Druid Chronicles

9. Newest favourite character.

Atticus O'Sullivan from Kevin Hearne's series The Iron Druid Chronicles - he's all around awesome!

10. Book that made you cry.

Most recently? Then that would be A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

11. Book that made you happy.

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill, the first three books (the ones I've read so far) of The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne, and Doctor Who: Summer Falls and Other Stories by James Goss, Melody Malone, and Justin Richards.

12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year. 

Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars were both very good - we'll see what I say after Gone Girl and The Maze Runner are released!
13. Favourite review you've written this year.


14. Most beautiful book you've bought so far this year (or received)


15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?

To keep the list short: All of them! :)
