I love this tag, I wasn’t even tagged to do this, but I love this as a small check in on my reading has been going. I also plan to do a follow up post on my reading goals because those are actually decent and no one is more shocked about that then me.
Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2019
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
I have no words that are adequate for this book, I already want to reread it and I need to continue on with the trilogy because I know its going to get better and better.
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2019
So far I think Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson is my choice, its hard to believe that this series has only gotten better.
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To
Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers
I want to read this so badly but for some reason im a little intimidated by the length, Im also nervous to start it in case it doesnt live up to the memory I have for the His Fair Assassin trilogy.
Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year
Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff, I am dying to know what happens next
That Month in Tuscany
I was really looking forward to this, I loved so many tropes that were mentioned but everything fell flat. I hated all of the characters.
Where the Crawdads Sing
This book wasn’t on my radar at all, I had even read the synopsis and thought “it sounds alright but I’m not sure if its for me,” but then a coworker recommended it to me and I trust his opinion so I read it and ended up loving it.

This was an unexpected surprise for me, I was reluctant to start this but I wanted to watch the show very badly. Once I started it though I couldn’t stop.
