Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
I know that I am a couple of weeks late doing the mid-year freak out tag. Some people did this back in mid-june. So I know that I am late, but I want to do this anyway.
And, will you believe it, I was actually tagged in this by Nikki @ Nikki Swift reads
But, without further ado, let’s dig in.

How much have you read?
Back in January I set my Goodreads Goal as 30 books. I didn’t want to set myself too big a target and not be able to achieve it when I hit a three month long slump like I did last year, so I went low. I am glad to say that I have, so far this year read 35 books! Go me!
Best book you’ve read so far in 2020?
There is no doubt what my favourite read has been this year. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I can’t believe that I haven’t read this before. I’ve said that a hundred times before. But it was an amazing read and I will be reading more Bardugo books.
Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2020?
I’ve read quite a few sequels so far and any number of them could be here but I have to choose one and only one.
The Dark Prophecy (Trials of Apollo #2) by Rick Riordan
New Release you haven’t read yet, but want to?
This list is pretty infinite. There are so many but I’m only going to list three.
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender
Most anticipated release for the second part of the year?
I did a whole post dedicated to this just last week. I honestly could list another 10 here but I won’t I’ll just leave it with the books that I put on there.
There is one answer to that. Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance by Beth Reekles.
Biggest surprise. Sometimes I wish that these questions were clearer. But I suppose it’s open to my own interpretation. A book that was the biggest surprise to me was Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. I don’t think I expected to like it as much as I did.
New favourite author (debut, or new to you)?
So many new favourites, but I definitely think that Leigh Bardugo deserves that crown.
Underrated gems you’ve discovered recently?
I’m not sure that you would call it underrated because it is really popular, but it is a gem.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
Rereads this year?
I’ve re-read a lot of book this year. Do you want me to list them all?
The Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Newest fictional crush?
There are many fictional crushes but none of which I am going to list here.
Newest favourite character?
Bryson Keller. He is definitely my favourite character. I think the guy is gorgeous, and he is sooooooo sweet in the books.
Book that made you cry?
I seem to be tearing up at a lot of books lately. I’m not normally a crier, but I’ve been tearing up … a lot. But I’m going to put Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye because it really struck a chord with me.
Book that made you happy?
All books make me happy, that’s why I read them.
Favourite book to film adaptation?
I have probably watched a few book to film adaptations, but I can’t honestly think of any right at this moment.
Most beautiful cover you’ve bought this year (or received)?
There are so many beautiful covers
What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
So many. Again this could be infinite. I could put so many books on this list. But they all deserve to be on the list. All books deserve to be read. All books deserve to be loved!
Favourite post that you have done this year?
I think my favourite post is definitely my Goodreads posts that I did at the end of last month.
Favourite book community members?
I can’t choose favourites. You are all my favourites. I love you all!
Who I tag …
I tag … YOU. You should all do this tag. I want to see it all.
