MID YEAR FREAK OUT TAG

frwak out

 

I have seen this tag all over Booktube lately and I just have to give it a go. I am adjusting some of the questions so that they fit a blog but other wise this should be good. No one tagged me but    I just had to do this.

 

This is my first tag and I enjoyed it so much, you may be seeing more tags from me in the future.

 

 

I am counting January to June in this tag.

 

 

Best book you’ve read so far in 2016

 

 

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

 Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2016
