Hey everyone! The MID-YEAR BOOK FREAKOUT tag has been popping up on book-related social media during the months of June and July, and it’s really popular among book bloggers and tubers. I thought it’d be cool to participate, especially since our friends’ posts have been so inspiring. This tag was created by booktubers Chami at ReadLikeWildfire and Ely at Earl Grey Books.
So far, 2017 has not been the best of reading years (perhaps coinciding with not having had a great year so far in general). In 2015, I had 20 books on my annual favourites shelf. In 2017, I’ve added 4 so far which isn’t very promising, is it? Due to my workload at university, I also haven’t been able to squeeze in a lot of reading time. I’ve read 21 books so far and I’m currently 4 books behind on my GR challenge. Nevertheless, I’ve read some really good books this year, and since this tag also talks about disappointments, you’ll be in for a few rants as well. Let’s begin with my bookish review of the first half of 2017, shall we?
