Mid Year Book Freak Out

time for tags

Hello fellow bookworms! How on earth is it July already?! We’re half way through the year, and I think we can all agree it’s not been the easiest six months for anyone! However, we’ve had the gift of literature to help us through! It’s now the perfect time to reflect on how the reading challenges are going, and generally freak out about the books we have (and haven’t) read. This is always a super fun post to do, because it gives me the chance to look back at all the books I’ve read so far this year and put them up against each other in metaphorical fights to see who will win and be crowned my favourites (or least favourites) in each category. So, here we are, this is what I think about the books I’ve read in 2020 so far…


Best 2020 Book So Far

Vicious by V.E. Schwab


Best 2020 Sequel So Far

The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson


New 2020 Release You Are Yet To Read

Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year

A Beautifully Foolish Endeavour by Hank Green (July 7th)


Biggest Disappointment of 2020 So Far

Favourite Film/TV Adaptation of 2020 So Far

Virgin River (adapted from the book by Robyn Carr)

(The TV show is so much better than the book in my opinion – I DNF’d the book!)


Favourite BookMuffin Post of 2019 So Far

The Bookish Bucket List Tag or my Bookworm Survival Kit post series!


Most Beautiful Book Purchased in 2020 So Far

The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell


Book I Need To Read by the End of 2020

A Darker Shade final for Irene

A Darker Shade of Magic (this is the same as last year oops it’s a must this year…)

So that’s a snapshot of 2020: Part One, and I can’t wait to see what Part Two will bring, especially now I’ve been reminded of the books I really should have read by now! I’d love to know what you think of the books I’ve read so far, and any recommendations for the rest of the year is always welcome.

Until next time…

Jade 🙂
