Am I doing this tag super later? Why yes I am! Better late than never, as I always say!
Hello Chapterlings! I hope summer has been treating everyone well and you’re all having a wonderful time reading! Can you believe we’re now in the second half of the year already?! I sure can’t! Time has been flying crazy fast and I’m almost not ready for it to be over, but I’ll admit, I’m really looking forward to the fall weather. Summer has me dying! But this is all beside the point of this post! This year has been a wild ride and even more so for my reading!
This is my first time doing the Mid Year Book Tag! I’m a little excited, nervous, but mostly thrilled to be doing this tag! So I hope you enjoy this as much as I did writing it up!
So far this year I have read 54 book and I have already surpassed my GoodReads 2019 Reading Challenge Goal! I don’t have any charts made up or statics to show you, but I can show you parts of my GoodReads challenge! ❤️
Okay, now that I’ve shown you that, let’s get into the actual tag! This is the good part! Where you get to see the books I loved, cherish, and some that were not so good. Also, let me just say this, I will only use one book per question because sometimes I can get a little carried away and no one wants to see that happen. Now onto the questions!

This is one of the hardest questions I have ever encountered! How does one even answer a question like this?!
Since joining the book community I have found so many wonderful, amazing people who have been inspirations, teachers, and found a relentless force of love and support. There aren’t enough words to described how grateful I am for this community and everything it has done for me and what it continues to do even now. I’m so thankful and blessed for all of YOU. Yes, YOU! The one who is reading this article right now. Without you; this article wouldn’t be possible, without your love and without your support, this blog would have never come to exist. I’m so very lucky to have readers who want to hear what I have to say and incredibly blessed. So thank you from the bottom of my heart! Words can’t express what all of this means for me and what it means for the future! Thank you, I love you! ❤️
A special thank you to Melanie at Meltotheany! She has been a beacon of light and inspiration since I first started reviewing books in 2014. She has been a constant voice of inspiration to be the best book reviewer and content creator I can be. And I am truly blessed not only have discussions with her, but to be able to call her a friend. She is an amazing person, so sweet and loving, and she’s just a blessing. If you ever have the chance, visit her blog and check out her content; she is a marvelous human being and I love her with all of my heart. ❤️
