It’s the 182nd day of the year and you know what that means – time to freak out about the mid year and how little you have achieved. Just kidding! It is firstly to just check with yourself how things are going!
How much I’ve read
I’m ahead by roughly a month’s worth of reading so no need to freak out about this!
What I’ve been Reading
As always, Fantasy rules when it comes to my reading lists (it includes urban fantasy, historical fantasy, high fantasy, etc) while surprisingly, contemporary is a close second (I thought it might be SciFi but then again, I didn’t read much of that so far this year).
I’d say most of my reading choices have been above average when it came to being good reads (for me), with 4 stars predominating the lists. Wish there were more of 4.5 and 5 stars, though.
It was also interesting to chart how many books per month – you can see the dip in March where I was at a low point and so in a reading slump, but then recovered for the the next month and kept going strong.
*Charts were made with the help of Kal @ Reader Voracious’ blog template.
Best Books of the Year so far
I cannot choose just one, but I will distribute them to other categories instead. So this one is for standalones/first books of the year
Best Sequels of the Year so far
All of these sequels climbed to 5-star and they were each amazing in different ways!
New releases you haven’t read yet but want to
I have a physical copy of Dark Shores but because I have earmarked that for a buddy read (still waiting on them lol) it has been put off for now. For Aurora Rising, I am waiting for Scribd to make it available, and I can’t get The Steel Prince as of now, so I have to wait.
Most anticipated releases for autumn/winter
Biggest disappointments of the year so far
Biggest surprises of the year so far
New favorite authors
Your Newest Fictional Crush
It is impossible for Margaret Rogerson to not make an adorable love interest; this time it is Nathaniel.
Book that made you cry
Is it really a surprise that all of these are finales for their series?
A book that made you happy
Much like last year, I have a shortage of books that are not grim-dark LOL.
Most Beautiful Book so Far
So many pretty covers abound but these are my favorites
Some books you need to read before 2019 ends
I can’t believe this is still here from last year so I am just copying it word for word: I want to complete the Hollows series, so
I’m skipping the last prompt and instead saying y’all to feel free to use this tag if you haven’t been tagged!

You have been having an incredible reading year so far!
I’d really hoped to read Sorcery of Thorns last month but just ran out of time. I’m really hoping I can get to it soon!! 4 stars for most of your books is great. That means you’re at least enjoying most of your books!
WOW, you are kicking butt with your reading so far this year! Keep up the awesome reading, and thanks for linking to my spreadsheet templates!
Your spreadsheets are a great help!
