Believe it or not but I am about ten books ahead on my GoodReads reading schedule, so I have read 63 books already this year! Still I’m going to choose only new reads to try and cut the down a bit, but that still leaves me with 37 books to choose from, so let’s go!
The best book of the year so far…
ACOWAR (ACOTAR #3) by Sarah J. Maas
I was trying to come up with something else, but why bother?
The Best Sequel of the Year so far…
Lord of Shadows (TDA #2) by Cassie Clare
Sequel-wise, this was absolutely excellent. I’m just going to pretend that last chapter didn’t happen.
A New Release You Haven’t Read But Want to
Release by Patrick Ness
I was going crazy trying to track this down on it’s release day, and I still haven’t read it!
Most Anticipated Release for Autumn/Winter
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6) by Sarah J. Maas
Even though I’m not a huge Chaol fan, and the lack of Dorian might be a problem, I trust Sarah with my reading happiness.
Your Biggest Disappointment of the Year so far…
The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
What a drag this one was!
Your Biggest Surprise of the Year so far…
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
Came in May’s Fairyloot and was amazing!

A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by V.E. Schwab
This just came out of left field and left me a complete mess.
