Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag: 2020 Edition

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag
I have been wanting to do this for some time. With this being my first and a little late.. Sorry I am doing it in July or late July. I been wanting to do this so, now better then never or waiting until next year. So I am stealing the Questions from Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

Best book you’ve read so far in 2020
I am going to choose two books. They are favorites for to different reasons but that okay with me I will be happy. One is my childhood favorite series growing up. The first one is The Berenstain Bears' Nature Rescue by Mike Berenstain. The other one was The Nutcracker Conspiracy by Lauren Carr, I just love mystery and she delivers.

Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2020
The Missing Planets by Hawk MacKinney is the second book in The Cairns of Sainctuarie series. It was great.
New release you haven’t read yet, but want to
There are to many to list. I have stack to end. Here are a just a few to say the least.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
Death In The Cloud by EJ Simon, is my most anticipated release. It was supposed to have released in July but because of Covid 19.. It now sometime in October.. This other three books are Death Never Sleeps, Death Logs In, Death Logs Out are the best thrillers I have read and reviewed. I Can't wait for Death in the Cloud.
Biggest disappointment
A Reason for Living by Julian Jingles was an okay book. If you want to read about Jamica history, this book is for you. The tile is not all that impressive. Let me at mention that I am not all the into this book. It has way to much of one thing that is not healthy. It a disappointment kinda read for me.

Biggest surprise
GenTech: An American Story of Technology, Change and Who We Really Are by Dr. Rick Chomey was really big surprise to me. I really enjoyed this one. So much so I was talking about it to my mom almost every time I was with her or found her in the house once i finished a chapter. I am not this way with Nonfiction books. This one wanting to read more. I am into technology but is also talks about Generations.

Favorite new author (debut or new to you)
I am choosing two authors for this one. One towards Middle Grade (MG) and the other is for a Young Adult (YA). Alba Arango has become a favorite by creating a series that I just want more of. Her series is the Decoders. I picked one book up to read and then I wanted the whole series. Alba Arango books are The Lady Ghost, The Miner's Gold, The Mysterious Music Box, The Sleepwalking Vampire.

Andrew Peterson became a favorite of mine. His book North or Be Eaten became a favorite of mine. I wish I had the first book as well. But I was only to receive one book and it was the book mention above. There are two more books that go with this one and I hope to see it go on sale or work my way to get them and his first one as well. I did not expect to enjoy the book that much as it Fantasy and I don't read much of it.

Book that made you cry
I do not recall any that made me cry. None that were emotional heavy in where I was in tears. And with the way things are at the moment. Real Life is stressful  right now to make me cry.

Book that made you happy
Well 5 books made me smile.  It hard choosing just one. So I put 4 books to a number generator. I gave 4 of the five books a number and let it generate a number. It choose the number 2. I Hate, Hate, Hate This Time of Day!: A Cute Bedtime Story by Alyssa Miracle is the winner.
Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)
Look at these lovely books! The Gingerbread Train, The Edge of Everwhen, The Treasure Tree, Think Big, Mindfulness at the Park. All are review copies.
What books do you need to read by the end of the year?
All of them! I do not need the stress of that time. I will read them when too. Only one has to read by October. I have my list of books I want to read in what order.. I am not being pressured into when they are done. We been stressed out enough in our real life..

That the wrap up on the first half of 2020! I hope that I can pull myself out and read a bit more in the second half, so I have a few reviews to post in the second half.

How was your first half of 2020? I love to know.. Tell me in the comments.
