The BW Mid Year Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

Caidyn was so nice to tag me for his and Chantal’s tag so I’m happy to comply with his request and will try my best to answer their questions. 😉

I might not like my answers though, but that’s an entirely different matter. *lol* Maybe this will give me one more reason to keep to my „Book List 2019“. XD (Yeah, I know, I already have enough reasons to read my books, but one more can’t hurt, can it? 😛 )

1. WHERE ARE YOU ON YOUR GOODREADS CHALLENGE? AHEAD OR BEHIND?

I’m actually ahead! OMG! I’ve bumped it up once already and I’m thinking about doing it again. Maybe to 62 books? I dunno, I’ll wait a little longer before I decide. XD

2. HAVE YOU REALLY BEEN READING YOUR TOP TEN BOOKS OF THE YEAR?

No! *facepalm*

I was procrastinating too much and therefore only read two of them. >_< But I’m working on reading the rest of them in the second half of the year. *lol*

3. ARE YOU GOING TO CHANGE SOME OF YOUR TOP TENS HALFWAY THROUGH?

I dunno! Maybe, maybe not. Depends on what I’m going to read and if I’ll like it.

4. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP FIVE BOOKS SO FAR THIS YEAR?

Mhmm gimmi a second. Those five were awesome!

  1. Illuminae (Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff)
  2. The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde)
  3. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Taylor Jenkins Reid)
  4. Gemina (Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff)
  5. The Heart’s Invisible Furies (John Boyne)

5. ANY NEW RELEASES YOU’RE EXCITED FOR?

„Chain of Gold“ by Cassandra Clare. I love all her books and I’m always super excited when they hit the stores. ❤ And of course „Call Down the Hawk“ by Maggie Stiefvater! I would read everything this woman writes. Hell, I’d even read her grocery list! Maggie is just awesome like that. *lol* 😉 Plus „Wayward Son“ by Rainbow Rowell!!! Do I even have to mention why?? 😀

6. FAVORITE CHARACTER OF A NEW (EITHER RELEASED THIS YEAR OR NEW TO YOU) BOOK THIS YEAR

Nik Malikov from „The Illuminae Files“! I love that boy so much! He’s the living proof that there’s more to a person that initially meets the eye! ❤ This series would have lost a lot of humour if Nik wouldn’t have been in it. *lol*

7. WHAT’S A BOOK YOU REGRET NOT HAVING READ SO FAR THIS YEAR?

„King of Scars“ because I love Nikolai Lantsov and I really should read it!!! I want to read this so badly but… I’m procrastinating too much. I could really bite myself. Haha!

8. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TV SHOWS/MOVIES YOU’VE WATCHED THIS YEAR?

The Rain

I dunno what it is but this series got me hooked! It’s really intriguing and I love the soundtrack and the idea of this group of young people that just tries to survive and to be there for each other. But boy the ending of season two was cruel! T_T

The Blacklist

I just started with this series but it’s really so, so, so, so GOOD!! I love the suspense and I know I might get weird looks for admitting that but I’m in love with Raymond Reddington’s mind! *lol* That man knows everything, has spies everywhere and is just so cunning and manipulative that I can’t help but adore him for it. XD

9. WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT TO WATCH BEFORE THE YEAR IS OUT?

I wish I could watch „Gentleman Jack“, but over here the series isn’t out yet and I don’t even know if it will hit our Austrian Netflix accounts soon.

10. WHAT’S ONE SONG YOU’VE BECOME OBSESSED WITH?

It has no lyrics because it’s played by „2Cellos“ but I just love the melody of „The Resistance“. If you don’t know those two amazing guys already, you better check them out now! 😉 They are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! ❤

11. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SONGS/ALBUMS SO FAR?

I’m probably really late with most of the songs I like right now but I always discover new music so it’s pretty normal for me to like those three songs. Aside from my „2Cellos“ obsession I just can’t get enough of those three songs:

Bad Liar – Imagine Dragons

Welcome Home, Son – Radical Face

Don’t Give In – Snow Patrol

Rankenzeile

  1. I love your answers (for like every tag-post you do^^).
    But since it’s music I often listen to, I have to hint, that the 2Cellos-song you mentioned is actually a cover of a song that has lyrics. 😉 It’s also called Resistance by a band named Muse:

  2. Congrats on being ahead of your reading challenge! That is always the best feeling. 🙂 The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is one of my favourite books of this year as well! I haven’t read King of Scars yet either, even though I actually pre-ordered it. I keep telling myself that I’m waiting for the release date of the second book to be closer so I don’t have to wait in between. 😀
    Thank you for tagging me! ❤

    1. Thank you, Anna! Yes, it is! I even upped it up once again and hope that I can reach my new goal. XD Evelyn Hugo was amazing and I really need to read „King of Scars“! I don’t even know when they’ll release the second book but I guess we might have to wait a little longer. You’re welcome and I hope you’ll enjoy the tag! 😉
