Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag!

AHHH! Freaking out! Okay, not really, but still! A little. I was tagged by 26countlesspossibilities (go read their blog!) to do The Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! I was thinking about doing this tag before I was tagged to do it, but I was like, "No, it is too hard to pick the books."  Then I was not going to do it. But then I was tagged, so I was like, "You have to do it. I know you can go to your books and pick!"

1. Best book you've read so far in 2015?
I am just going to say The BIBLE!  (No, I did not read all of it, but a lot! And it is my favorite!).

2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2015?
In Good Company by Jen Turano.  This is book two in the A Class All Their Own series, and this book was even better than book one, After A Fashion. (This one was so hard to pick. I have read so many great sequels this year!)

3. New release you haven't read yet, but want to to?
Redeemed by Margaret Paterson Haddix.  This is the 8th, and last, book of The Missing series.  Redeemed was released on the 8th of September.

4. Most anticipated release for the second half of 2015?
THE GOLDEN BRAID!!!!! by Melanie Dickerson!  This is book six in her first series, and I can't wait for it to be out. This will be out November 17th.

5. Biggest disappointment?
Miles From Nowhere by Amy Clipston.  This is book three in her companion series, and I really like the first two, but I did not like much of this one at all. The main character made me soooo mad at her, and I really did not like her.  She made so many bad decisions!

6. Biggest surprise?
Palace of Lies by Margaret Peterson Haddix.  This is book three in the Just Ella series. I did not know this book was going to be a book until this year, and I was very happy.  I really enjoyed it!  Also, I really like the first two books in the series.  I need to re-read Just Ella; I have not read it in years. 

7. Favorite new author?
Joanne Bischof.  As of right now, I have only read three books by her, but I want more!

8. Newest fictional crush?
Nathaniel Upchurch from The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, by Julie Klassen. 

9. Book that made you cry?
Tons of books, but I think the most tearful are A Constant Heart by Siri Mitchell and Expectations by Melanie M. Jeschke.  They made me cry so much!!!!

10. Book that made you happy?
All of the Erynn Mangum books! They are so funny and cute and nice and love!

11. Favorite book to movie that you saw this year?
I don't think I've seen any so far this year. 

12. Most beautiful book you bought this year?
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson.  This book is beautiful inside and out (the story and the cover)!

13.What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
I don't really have any that I HAVE to read.  I would like to read all the books that are coming out for the rest of the year that I am waiting for (you can look on my "To Read" shelf on Goodreads for this).

I am still working on a book review, but I have not had time to work on it much.  I want the review to be really good and well done.  I will try to have it up before October, but life is crazy!  All the days in  my planner all filled.  I enjoy blogging, and need to plan that into the planner, too.
