I was in the mood to do a fun tag, and I love Netflix so this was the perfect one. The original video is here, and if you want to do it too then I tag you!
1. Recently Watched:The last book you finished reading.
The last book I finished was The Selection by Kiera Cass which happened to be a re-read for the millionth time. It is a dystopian that is basically The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games, but not as vicious or bloody. Just as dramatic though! There is a lot of mixed reviews because people either love it or hate it, and while I do have problems with it, I can’t help but adore it!
2. Top Picks: A book/books that have been recommended to you based on book you have previously read.
A few years ago I watched Sasha Alsberg’s video where she recommends books based on other more popular books, and one was if you liked City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (which I love!) then you should check out Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. I ended up falling in LOVE with Ruby Red and the other two books in the series, and will forever be in debt for this amazing recommendation.
3. Recently Added: The last book you bought
Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier! The third and final book in her Precious Stones trilogy which I just raved about. It is amazing and I am currently re-reading it for the third or fourth time!
4. Popular on Netflix: Books that everyone knows about. (2 you’ve read and 2 you haven’t read or have no interest in reading)
Two that I have read are City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, this is a very popular book that I am sure about 85% of YA lovers have read, and then an obvious choice would be Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling. Two that I haven’t read or have no interest in would be A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas and Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. I have a MASSIVE interest in reading both though so hopefully they won’t be on my TBR for much longer!
5. Comedies: A funny book
It is really hard for me to remember what books made me laugh the most because honestly, I don’t think I laugh much while reading…or at least catch myself laughing and remember what exactly I found so funny. So I don’t think I have an answer for this one!
6. Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king.
Princess Eadlyn Schreave from The Selection series (books #4 + 5). She is so snobby and annoying and because she is a princess, believes she is much higher than everyone else. I almost had to put the book down because she overreacted about every little thing.
7. Animated: A book with cartoons on the cover
The closest I have to this would be my copy of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Titan’s Curse graphic novel. I still have yet to read it, but I am looking forward to it!
8. Watch it again: A book/book series that you want to re-read
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer because it has been forever since I last read them. The last time I picked them up was three years ago when the final book, Winter, came out…which is absolutely insane. I really need to try and give them a re-read this summer because I remember little to nothing!
9. Documentries: A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone
Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. I am not even American but found the parts I have read so far of this book fascinating. I would also recommend listening to the musical soundtrack in order as you continue on with the book for the ultimate experience! You will take away so much information within the first few pages and it isn’t dull at all.
10. Action and Adventure: An action packed book
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare…this book was just a rollercoaster of emotions considering each scene was pack filled with so much action and drama. It is safe to say I was emotionally exhausted by the end of it but it was so, so worth it!
11. New Releases: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi! This is a massive fantasy book inspired by West African mythology that came out a few months ago, and I am so excited to (hopefully) get to it this summer. I have only heard fantastic things and ugh, I wish I had my hands on it right now.
Those are all of my answers to the Netflix book tag and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post and social media accounts, all linked below for you!
