Mid-Year Book Freak Out Book Tag- 2017

Hey fellow readers, Welcome to another post hopefully we’ll have a good time with this one. I did this tag last year with lots of silly gifs (CLICK HERE) and I am quite shocked that we are here again in the middle of the year.

Let’s just get in with the half year review of my reading… So, I have set a goal of 50 books this year and so far I have only tackled 22 which isn’t bad but last year’s momentum was good and I blame it all on the stupid adulting gig that I didn’t sign up for and my reading momentum has sort of been not great but I digress… I still read some good books and some not so great books.

New release you haven’t read yet, but want to.Image result for waiting emoji

4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster

Synopsis

Nearly two weeks early, on March 3, 1947, in the maternity ward of Beth Israel Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson, is born. From that single beginning, Ferguson’s life will take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. Four identical Fergusons made of the same DNA, four boys who are the same boy, go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Athletic skills and sex lives and friendships and intellectual passions contrast. Each Ferguson falls under the spell of the magnificent Amy Schneiderman, yet each Amy and each Ferguson have a relationship like no other. Meanwhile, readers will take in each Ferguson’s pleasures and ache from each Ferguson’s pains, as the mortal plot of each Ferguson’s life rushes on.

  just the premise alone has me hooked and I need it in my hands.

Synopsis

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is wildly provocative and gloriously absorbing.

Easily Stephen & Owen King’s collaboration Sleeping Beauties… I want it now!!!!

A favorite review/post you’ve written this year.

I decided to do an honest discussion on the struggles I encountered as a book blogger and I got so much feedback that I am glad I put it up and that is most definitely my favorite post so far this year. I can’t wait to post more discussion.

  1. Great post! Every time I see The Blind Assassin it reminds me I have to get it lol, I think I might just sit down right now and order some more books. Love Atwood so much though ❤ I definitely would like to read more Paul Auster too, I've only ever read one (Oracle Night) and thought it was gonna be my thing but I wasn't super impressed. 4321 however sounds very compelling!
