Mid-year Book Freakout Tag

A new tag created by A Book So Fathomless  
"It's a pretty simple little bookish survey for you all. Just answer the fifteen questions, add the link to your post and read back over your answers at the end of the year to see whether they've changed or not."

1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2015. 
I am so happy that I have found some new favorites this year in reading! We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling, Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block, Splintered Series by A.G. Howard, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. 

2. Best sequel you've read so far in 2015.
Unhinged by A.G. Howard. Only sequel I have read really other than #2 and 3 in Y: The Last Man series. Also good. 

3. New release you haven't read yet, but want to.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and Armada by Ernest Cline.

4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews!!

5. Biggest disappointment.
Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham... Even then I wasn't expecting much. 

6. Biggest surprise.
Splintered series by A.G. Howard. I started reading it after someone spoke about it and wasn't really into the idea of fairies. Then I read it and got so absorbed in it.

7. Favourite new author. (Debut or new to you)
E. Lockhart, Douglas Adams, and maybe Jonathan Franzen.

8. Newest fictional crush.
