Ahh, the mid-year mark! The one where I look through the bookish goals I set myself, evaluate how much I’m failing them, judge my reading progress so far, and complete the Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag. Now one question that threw me was the one asking “your most anticipated releases for the second half of 2019?” A few came to mind, but looking through all the books on my wishlist afterwards made me realise there’s so many I’m waiting (im)patiently for. So why not talk about them some more?
I could’ve been helpful and listed these in chronological order, but by the time I realised that would be a good idea I’d kind of already yelled by way through half of them so…enjoy? I have listed the release date next to the Goodreads link though, so at least I’m giving you something, right?
Let me know if any of these are on your wishlist, or if there are any you think I should add!
Ooooohhhhh how December was a great month, haul-wise.
I’ve been on a book buying ban for THREE MONTHS. I needed to save my money for a whole bunch of different things, and so my book buying was put on hold for a whole three months. And oh how Christmas made up for that 😆
Nearly all of these books were gifts I got for Christmas, since everyone around me knows how much I love books. I’m incredibly grateful for them all and always will be ❤
This post is going to be set out a bit differently. My main version of this is actually on my booktube channel, so below you’ll find a video for this haul. HOWEVER, I’ve also listed the books mentioned below the video, with the synopsis and relevant links, so if you don’t have time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video, you can have a quick glance through instead!
The video has me full of excitement and rambling about why/how I got each book though, so I’d recommend watching it *wink*
Let’s see which books December brought me!

I’ve been tagged in so many posts lately, which is why there’s been an increase of posts from me this week. Hope you don’t mind!
Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels tagged me to do the Seasons of Book Blogging book tag, so thank you, and here it is!
How this works:
- Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
- Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
- State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
- Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
- Have fun, of course!
So let’s do this!

I was tagged by Belle Infini and BOOKS AND OTHER MIRACLES to do this tag, so thank you! 😀
1. Find a book for each of your initials.
Well, my initials are AJW, so here we go…
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas/ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte/ Winter by Marissa Meyer. I don’t actually own Winter yet, but all the other options had boring covers and I think I’ll be getting it at Christmas so close enough, right? Also Jane Eyre turned out to be the only book I own beginning with J. I had to scavenge for it.
2. Count your age along your bookshelf. What book is it?
