I saw this book tag over at http://bookertsfarm.blogspot.co.uk/ and decided to give it a go. This tag was originally created by Ely Jayne at http://www.teaandtitles.com/
1) Best Book You've Read So Far in 2017
GRRM's 'A Game Of Thrones' has to be right up there.
2) Best Sequel You've read So Far in 2017
It would have to be the Extinction Horizon series by Nicholas Sansbury Smith. Every one has been brilliant. Also really liked GRRM's 'A Clash of Kings'.
3) New Release You Haven't Read Yet But Want To
Hunter Shea-Just Add Water. I'm waiting for the paperback for mail order horror fun!
4) Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2017
Kevin Hearne-Besieged. New Atticus and Oberon anthology with extra Owen! Oh and the last books in my two favourite zombie series Michael Stephen Fuchs 'Arisen' and Nicholas Sansbury Smith's 'Extinction Horizon' WANT!!! NOW!!!
5) Biggest Disappointment
A few really bad NF this year including Sue Perkins 'Spectacles' and Dan Hodges political parody 'One Minute to Ten'. Big DNFs. Brennan Beard 'Devil of the Forest' was a poor Bigfoot book too. Wanted much more from that.
6) Biggest Surprise
Nothing has really surprised me yet. I'm not one to experiment greatly with the genres I read, sticking mainly to my favourites.
7) Favourite New Author
Based on the zombie series I'd say Nicholas Sansbury Smith but I haven't read his other series yet. Hope to start 'Orbs' this week. Hunter Shea looks quite promising as well on the horror side of things.
8) Newest Fictional Crush
Not interested in this book boyfriend thing.
9) Newest Favourite Character
Fitz and dog Apollo from Nicholas Sansbury Smith's 'Extinction Horizon' and of course Tyrion Lannister from GRRM's 'ASOIAF' series. Myrnin from The Morganville Vampires.
10) Book That Made You Cry
A few favourites bit the dust in Extinction Horizon series. Darn you Nicholas Sansbury Smith! Blubbed a bit over a death in The Morganville Vampires too.
11) Book That Made You Happy
Can't say any made me really happy but I was amused by Sarah Andersen's books this year. The cartoons are funny and I relate totally to her.
12) Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You've Seen So Far in 2017
Haven't watched any films really this year. Can I count Game of Thrones??? Great first two books read this year turned into awesome TV!
13) Favourite Review You've Written So Far in 2017
I don't rate my own reviews. I don't really think any of them stand out.
14) Most Beautiful Book You've Bought So Far in 2017
I've bought so many this year. Lots of Indie apocalypse books with great covers. I was hoping the answer would be 'The Winds of Winter' but lets not go there...!
15) What Books Do You NEED To Read By The End Of The Year
Heh, LOTS! I have to finish The Morganville Vampires series. I'd like to catch up on a lot of long running series by Carrie Vaughn, Rob Thurman, Jennifer Estep, Darrell Maloney, George RR Martin, Benedict Jacka and John Marsden but time is already against me!
