Happy Saturday! Today I’m doing a tag! This is the Half Year Book tag and I was sorta-kinda tagged by Zezee (thanks friend :D). I wasn’t ‘tagged’ but I was mentioned in the post SO CLOSE ENOUGH I’M DOIN IT. This tag was created by BexnBookx
Also, this is more of a uh.. ‘last two months of the year’ tag for me. Shhhh
Favourite stand alone book hauled and read so far in 2017?
Sooo… I haven’t read any stand-alones this year that were also hauled this year. So I have to give this one a non-answer, hawhaw.
Favourite series that you started or continued to read in 2017?
That would definitely by the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks. I’ve read the first book, The Black Prism, along with the second. Both were five-star reads for me. I’m currently in the middle of the third and while I’m liking it just as much, it’s taken a bit of a back-burner to all the other books I’ve been reading lately.
Favourite bookish items purchased or received this year?
I can’t think of any book-related things I bought this year that weren’t actually books! The closest I can come up with is the Ready Set Novel workbook I purchased for Nanowrimo this year! I’m currently in the middle of it and my novel is more fleshed out now than it ever has been, haha. I’ve rewritten the same novel over and over for ages now and I really want it to actually get finished this year. PLEASE OH PLEASE.
Favourite debut author?
I feel like I’m going to be bad at a lot of these questions, hahaha. I didn’t read any 2017 debut authors this year.
Favourite under-hyped book that you read this year?
The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson. This lovely piece of art has only 5000-something reviews on goodreads. IT DESERVES SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT, MAN.
Favourite book read this year that you were late to the party on?
That would be the Harry Potter illustrated editions. I’ve been buying them since they came out (just bought the third) but haven’t actually read them until very recently. I waited too long, I think. They’re so lovely. 😀
Potential favourite that you haven’t got around to reading yet?
I feel like I’ll really love The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. It’s a recent purchase for me – in the last haul I did before I banned myself. It just speaks to me, man.
Favourite re-read in 2017?
…unless you count Harry Potter from above, I haven’t reread anything… :”D
Favourite cover on a book released this year?
Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book by Jomny Sun. This looks like an adorably cute book and I really like this cover. Do I own it? No. Will I likely read it this year? …No. Book ban. Next year! 😀
(Optional) Favourite book box this year?
I don’t get any sub boxes. 😛 Do all the boxes I’m shoving my books into to move this month count?
That’s it! Since it’s so late in the year, I’m not gonna tag anyone I don’t think. 😛
