Tag: The Mid-Year Freak Out!

Hi all!

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

I know I almost always do Top 10 Tuesday on … well, on a Tuesday but I don’t like this week’s topic so I’m filling the space with a book tag.

I haven’t been tagged in this by anyone but I saw it everywhere a few weeks ago I though it would make a great summing up of the year so far.

I’ve seen this tag on several sights but the one that I really remember was Sara’s at the Bibliophagist. Check out her post here.

Now… down to business!


Best book I have read so far in 2019?

This is so har to say. Probably either Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (review to come on Thursday) or Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness.

Best sequel of 2019 so far?

No doubt about it. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.

New release you haven’t read yet but want to?

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Biggest Disappointment?

The Siren by Kiera Cass. I think I have said all I ever want to say about this book in my review.

Biggest Surprise?

I’m not sure I have a book that has given me a big surprise. Or even a surprise. I don’t think I have ever gone into a book expecting to hat it and loved it or anything like that.

Favourite new (to me) author?

Sarah J. Maas. Hands down. I love her stuff and I can’t stop reading it.

New Fictional Crush

I don’t really know who my favourite is. I like Dorian and Chaol and Miles and Simon (I know he’s gay) and d so many more I could list them forever.

Newest Favourite Character.

Celeana Sardothian.

Book that made you cry?

I don’t really cry at books. The only book I remember crying at, ever, was Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah. One day I will have to review that for you. It was a book I had to read in school and I took a copy home and finished it all in one night. A twelve year old Chiara was then found at about midnight crying her eyes out as she read about tiny little ducklings.

Books that made you happy?

All books tend to make me happy. But one particular book? Shadow of Night

Favourite book to move adaptations?

Love Simon.

Favourite review you’ve written this year?

I think the most fun one to write was A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

Most beautiful book you’re bought/received this year?

The Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan.


Okay, because I wasn’t tagged in this I’m not going to tag anyone else, but, please, feel free to do it and remember to link me to it so I can check it out!
