It’s been a while since I’ve done a Book Tag Thursday post—too long, really. The Netflix Book Tag idea I saw over on Thrice Read caught my eye, because when I’m not reading, I’m watching Netflix (or Hulu, CW online, etc.) So why not pay tribute to both of my past times, right?
Recently Watched: The Last Book You Finished Reading
Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. This thriller was a solid 3 stars, until the ending made me legit freak out. It’s still haunting me.
Top Picks: A Book That Has Been Recommended to You Based on a Book You Have Previously Read
Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza is being recommended if you like Game of Thrones (particularly Arya Stark). I might be getting a copy from Penguin Teen, so we’ll see if it’s true!
Recently Added: The Last Book You Bought
My last purchase actually comprised three books: The Dry by Jane Harper, King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard, and The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.
Popular on Netflix: Books that Everyone Knows About
Pretty much anything by Sarah J. Maas; the excitement surrounding the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin this year is REAL.
Comedies: A Funny Book
Modern Love by Aziz Ansari. Aziz is one of my favorite comedians, and his book about relationships in today’s digital age was laugh-out-loud funny.
Dramas: A Character Who is a Drama King/Queen
Literally everyone in Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. But mostly Heathcliff and Catherine. They annoyed me SO. MUCH.
Animated: A Book with Cartoons on the Cover
Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Does that count as a cartoon, since it’s an illustration?
Watch It Again: A Book/Series that You Want to Re-read
I don’t really re-read anything; time is too short and new books are too plenty to spend hours reading something I’ve already read. BUT. If some of my Bookstagram friends decide to re-read A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury before the release of ACOWAR, I may join in.
Documentaries: A Nonfiction Book You’d Recommend to Everyone
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It’s short and sweet, and about a very important subject that not everyone seems to understand.
Action and Adventure: An Action-Packed Book
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I’m listening to it on audio, and there’s always something happening that keeps my attention until I have to pause it and get on with my real life.
New Releases: A Book that Just Came Out or Will Be Coming Out Soon that You Can’t Wait to Read
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab just came out, and The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas will be coming out soon (Feb. 28), and I can’t wait to read both of them.
Do you agree/disagree with any of my answers? Want to give this tag a shot? Feel free to tag me if you do, so I can see it!
