It’s that time of year again! I always start to see the Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag floating around early June, which always seems a little premature to me – there’s a whole month of the first half of the year left?! What if you read a masterpiece mid-June?! But we’re firmly in the second half of the year now so I’m ready to add mine to the pile.
I think this tag has become a staple of the summer book-blogging calendar! The tag was first created by booktubers ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books and has become an annual tag that pops up everywhere during June and July on book blogs. It was one of the first posts I ever did, probably, as I started blogging (on Tumblr) in June of last year. Here’s where you can find last year’s answers (now on this blog). I debated whether I was going to do one at all, especially as I really wanted to do a post looking at my goals and some statistics too (which you can find here!) but the two posts are so different, so I definitely had to do the tag too!
Can you believe we’re in July already?! As we’re halfway through 2019, I’ve seen a lot of people doing ‘Mid-Year’ posts, mostly the ‘Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag’, created by ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books. I will be doing the tag sometime soon but first, I decided to check in with my reading goals. I want to see if I’m on track to achieve the targets I set myself at the beginning of the year, and also take a look at any trends that seem to have emerged so far! I haven’t included anything I’ve read the past week or so, so these stats are for exactly the first six months of the year: January 1st to June 30th.
