THE MID-YEAR BOOK FREAK OUT TAG | 2017










1. Best Book You've Read So Far in 2017?
Bliss and other stories by Katherine Mansfield. Actually, at this moment, I'm reading War and Peace and probably by the end of the year this will be my favourite book, but as I haven't finished it yet, I'll say Bliss because it was like revisiting an old and familiar place. Some of the short stories I knew, some of them I didn't, but it was like all those words spoke to me like no other did. I made a blog post about the feeling of reading Katherine Mandfield's works before, but I'll repeat, she is like no other.

2. Best Sequel You've Read So Far in 2017?
I've just finished The story of a new name and I loved it! As a matter of fact, I read the first book of the Neapolitan series in January, and I felt like I had to continue reading it this year and it was one of my best decisions specially during my vacation time, as it is such a delight to read Elena Ferrante's books.

3. New Release You Haven't Read Yet, But Want To?
Novelist as a profession by Haruki Murakami. Nothing else to say, it is Haruki Murakami.

4. Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2017?
All the graphic novels from the publisher Darkside.

5. Biggest Disappointment?
The sun and the fish by Virginia Woolf. Click here to check my review.

6. Biggest Surprise?
A desumanização by Valter Hugo Mãe. I haven't done a review about this book, because it is such a heavy and difficult subject to talk about that I'm still processing my thoughts about it. But in the future I'll definitly do it. 

7. Favourite New Author?
Marcel Proust. (Because he is new to me, but my heart still belongs to Tolstoi two years in a row)

8. Newest Fictional Crush?

No crushes this year :( 

9. Newest Favourite Character?

From the book that I'm reading at the moment Pierre Bezukhov. I believe he is my new Lievin <3 HAHAHAHA he sometimes is made of fool, but I love him anyways.

10. Book That Made You Cry?

Swann's way by Marcel Proust. I'm just in the beginning of this journey, but it is such an emotion path to follow that I can't only be grateful for having the opportunity to read it.

11. Book That Made You Happy?
Wonder Woman's stories on the DC New 52. 

12. Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You Saw This Year?

Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro. It was a gift from a dear friend of mine, I read it and rewatched the movie and I think it was the only story that I read so far that it has an adaptation.

13. Favourite Review You've Written This Year?

All the videos released on Gisele Eberspacher channel.
