A new release you haven’t read yet but really want to
Oh man! There are sooooooo many. But the first one that comes to mind is Courting Darkness
2018’s Answer: Spinning Silver
Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
I did a whole post on this! But if I must choose one it is probably The Girl the Sea Gave Back only because it is the only stand alone (kind of) book on the list and I still need to re-read all the other series!
2018’s Answer: Heroine’s Journey
Your biggest disappointment
We Are Legion – My friend loves this book and suggested I listen to it on audiobook and I really wanted to like it but I just couldn’t.
2018’s Answer: The Viking’s Chosen
Your biggest surprise
I had no desire to read The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue but I really wanted to read The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, but I can’t read the 2nd book in a series without reading the 1st! So I read The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and absolutely loved it!

2018’s Answer: Amazon’s “100 Books to Read in a Lifetime” Tag
The most beautiful book you’ve
bought read this year
Like last year, I am going to choose the most beautiful book I have read, because I have bought a lot of books and don’t keep track of them.
I don’t know why but I love the cover of The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy!
2018’s Answer: The Wendy
What books do you need to read by the end of the year
I am all caught up on my NetGalley reading! (though I still have to write the review for one of them) so I don’t *NEED* to read any books. There are a million I want to read, but none I have to.
2018’s Answer: A Pirate at Pembroke
I can’t believe that this year is halfway over! But I am right on track with my Goodreads reading goal. I am behind on both my re-tellings challenge and my audiobooks challenge, but I should be able to get caught up on those!
