Good morning friends!
I wanted to apologize for not writing posts consistently and on a regular basis as of late. My college studies have been hectic and quite vast thus preventing me from doing anything pleasurable, like reading for fun or blogging as I’d like. But the pile is a bit too intense for me right now and I desperately needed a break. I plopped before my computer and blog-hopped for a bit, where I came upon an awesome book tag that sounded right up my alley. Figuring this is just the thing to help me unwind and sneak some pleasurable writing into the schooling theatrics, I decided to give it a shot!
I hope you guys enjoy The Netflix Book Tag! If anyone out there is also buried beneath homework, I empathize and wish you a successful term!
Happy reading. ♥
- Recently Watched: What is the last book that you finished? – My last read was Red Queen (The Chronicles of Alice #2) by Christina Henry. It was a phenomenal read and I can’t wait to post a review soon!
- Top Picks: What’s a book/book series recommended to you based on previous books that you’ve read? – Based on my love for magical realism and British literature, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman was recommended to me by my boyfriend.
- Recently Added: What is the last book that you bought? – The last book that I bought (and wasn’t gifted) was Ash by Malinda Lo, which is a young adult queer literature with supernatural elements.
- Popular on Netflix: Name books that everyone knows about (2 that you have read and 2 that you have not read). – The first two are titles that I’ve read (and have seen everywhere in blogs and stores): Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The two that I haven’t read (yet) are: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
- Comedies: Name a funny book. – It’s definitely the comic book Spiderman/Deadpool Volume #1: Isn’t it Bromantic by Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness.
- Dramas: Name a character who is a drama queen/king. – Emily Asher from Beautiful Creatures by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia. She was such a whiny, malicious drama queen. That woman drove me absolutely batty!
- Animated: Name a book with cartoons on the cover. – Since they turned it into an anime (Japanese animation) series, I’m going to have to choose Orange Omnibus Collection 1 & 2 by Ichigo Takano. This totally counts, right?
- Watch it Again: What is a book/book series that you want to re-read? – Even though I finished this book earlier this year, I loved it so much I’m totally ready to dive back into it. It’s a Japanese psychological horror thriller called Another by Yukito Ayatsuji.
- Documentaries: What is a non-fiction book that you’d recommend to everyone? – Night by Elie Wiesel, which tells the story about an adolescent Jewish boy who was torn from his home and placed into Nazi death camps. It’s candid, honest, and superbly poignant as well as horrific and terrifying. It’s a part of this world’s history that everyone should know existed so that we could avoid hurting others in such a miserable fashion.
- Action & Adventure: Name an action-packed book. – Oh, man, there are so many! For a dystopian, psychological horror, I will name Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. For cyberpunk science-fiction (that’s so badass), I will name Koko Takes a Holiday by Kieran Shea.
- New Releases: What is a book that was just released (or that will be releasing soon) that you can’t wait to read? – Super easy: Absolutely on Music: Conversations written by Haruki Murakami where he sits down with acclaimed conductor Seiji Ozawa and chats about his love, passion, and inspiration of music. I want to read this so badly I simply can’t put it into words. It releases in mid-November.
- Max: Tag some folks! – I’m pretty terrible at tagging people, so I’m just going to leave this open for anyone who finds this tag to be interesting!
