Mid-Year Book Freak Out 2022!

It’s that time of year again folks!! The Mid-Year Freak Out tag is a book blogging staple and I love doing it every single year. We’ve officially survived the first six months of the year, only six more to go. In those six months I’ve read 61 books and I’m excited to reflect on those books today!

✨Past Mid-Year Freak Outs!✨ – 2019 // 2020 // 2021


Best book you’ve read so far in 2022.

I did a whole blog post last week talking all about my favourite books of the year so far.

I think I included something like 8 books on that list but my definite favourite of the year so far is still really easy to point out: Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

This book was so goddamn addictive. I could not put it down and reading it was just one of those experiences where my brain couldn’t get enough.

My life now revolves around waiting for this TV show to premiere.

ARC Review: The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake

Publication Date: March 1st 2022

The Alexandrian Society is a secret society of magical academicians, the best in the world. Their members are caretakers of lost knowledge from the greatest civilizations of antiquity. And those who earn a place among their number will secure a life of wealth, power, and prestige beyond their wildest dreams. Each decade, the world’s six most uniquely talented magicians are selected for initiation – and here are the chosen few…

Libby Rhodes and Nicolás Ferrer de Varona: inseparable enemies, cosmologists who can control matter with their minds.
– Reina Mori: a naturalist who can speak the language of life itself.
– Parisa Kamali: a mind reader whose powers of seduction are unmatched.
– Tristan Caine: the son of a crime kingpin who can see the secrets of the universe.
– Callum Nova: an insanely rich pretty boy who could bring about the end of the world. He need only ask.

When the candidates are recruited by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, they are told they must spend one year together to qualify for initiation. During this time, they will be permitted access to the Society’s archives and judged on their contributions to arcane areas of knowledge. Five, they are told, will be initiated. One will be eliminated. If they can prove themselves to be the best, they will survive. Most of them.

I’ve become obsessed with romance novels.

Once upon a time I said over and over that romance was my least favourite genre and that I especially never thought I’d like Adult Romance. Well, well, well how the turntables because fast forward a couple of years and here I am!

I really milked the romance cow back in February and I kinda feel bad about still going on the romance train BUT i realised I’ve not talked about up and coming New Adult romance books I’m interested in reading so I’m going to do that today!


Terms & Conditions by Lauren Asher – February 24th

I’ve been seeing people reading Terms & Conditions over the last week since it’s release and I am so jealous!

The Dreamland Billionaire’s series follows the grandsons of the fictional version of Disney. Each grandson is given a task, I guess you could say, they have to complete in order to secure their shares in the company. The second book follows the eldest brother Declan who has to marry to secure his position and so he marries his assistant Iris.

I loved the first book in this series which I read late last year. I did a whole review on it in my grumpy/sunshine post if you want to check that out. I’d like to say for the record that I am anti-real-billionaire’s but fictional-billionaires are very fun to read about!

My anticipated releases of 2022 // January, February & March

Hi and hello👋

I’m back in uni mode which means, despite only having to go to uni for a couple hours a day, I feel like I barely have time to write blog posts and read. How does this happen? Just cause I have to feed myself again!

Anyways. I have to leave for uni in an hour and I’m gonna try and bang out my first round of 2022 anticipated releases. I’m always getting distracted by the tiniest things though so there’s a chance I’m gonna have to squeeze out time later tonight to finish this off. Wish me luck in not getting off track!!

Anatomy: A Love Story by Dana Schwartz

Release Date: January 18th

It took me longer then I would like to admit to realise that this is not a uniquely illustrated anatomic heart, but instead a women and her big ass dress!!

This book follows a women who wants to be a surgeon in a time where women are still expected to leave their brain-cells at the door and take care of the kids.

She strikes a deal with a renowned doctor whose lectures she was kicked out of: if she can pass the medical examination on her own, the university has to allow her to enrol. (and I thought my uni application process was stressful!). To get access to corpses to study, she teams up with a grave robber who has his own problems such as his friends going missing.

This is giving “Stalking Jack the Ripper” vibes but with less murder (maybe, idk there could be some murder), and hopefully I enjoy it more then I did that book.
