Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag!! 2021

Best book you’ve read so far in 2021

It’s been a mediocre year so far reading wise. Ive read a lot of 4 stars but only a few 5 stars. But out of all the 5 stars I’ve given, the two below are the ones that stood out the most 🙂

The Ones We’re Meant To Find by Joan He (review here)

In The Ravenous Dark by A. M. Strickland (review here)

Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2021

Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir is without a doubt the best sequel that I’ve read so far this year. It’s a 500page book and it took me 400 pages of confusion before I understood what was going on 😂

New release you haven’t read yet but want to

There are many books that came out this spring that I have yet to pick up but the three below is a good selection. Of which I only own Vicious Spirits by Kat Cho… not good!

Most anticipated releases for the second half of the year

Ok. There are a few but what comes to my mind first is Among Thieves by M. J. Kuhn and Namesake (Fable #2) by Arienne Young

Biggest disappointment

Piranesi by Susanna Clark was a disappointment to me. But also Peter Pan by J. M . Barrier and Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice.

Biggest surprise

Maurice by E. M. Forster took me completely by surprise this year. A classic queer book that I had expectations for and it turned out quite differently in a good way.

Favourite new author (debut or new to you)

Tons of new to me authors so far this year which is very exciting but make the selection for this question rather hard…

Newest fictional crush

I don’t really crush on characters, but I do have a lot of love for all the characters who are strongly single and worship friendships and loves themselves. Those are my favourites this year so far.

Newest favourite character

I mean plenty. Top 3 would probably be:

  • Thalia from The House in the Cerulean Sea
  • Tori Spring from Heartstopper vol 4
  • MurderBot from All Systems Red

A book that made you cry

Only one this year. Picture Us in the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert was amazing!

A book that made you happy

So many books!

Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)

No special editions so far this year but I’m a big fan of the covers below.

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


No, maybe the selection below though. Maybe. I don’t have anything I feel NEEDS to be read ASAP. but the books below has been pushed back several times so I how they will get their time soon.

Which book made you happy this year?
