Netflix Book Tag


April (1).png

Hello everyone! Happy Friday TGIF! I hope you all have a nice Easter weekend, if you celebrate. I’ve been wanting to do a tag and I thought this would be a good one. I’ve always wanted to do it, but never got around to it. I may make Tag Friday a thing… So, if you have tagged me in a tag let me know!

This tag was created by A Darker Shade Of Whitney on YouTube.

Recently Watched: What is the last book you finished?

30653853

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli – I have a review of this book, I loved it a lot. If you’re looking for a new diverse book, pick this one up for sure.

Top Picks: Books Recommended to you based on another you’d read.

Based on having read IF I WAS YOUR GIRL by Meredith Russo, I was recommended THE ART OF BEING NORMAL by Lisa Williamson. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was really good and I loved the transgender representation. However, it is not own voices but it reads like an own voices book. The author worked in Gender Identity Services. I also recommend this if you liked IF I WAS YOUR GIRL.

Recently added: Last book you bought?

Image result for shuffle, repeat book

I just bought this last night on Amazon. I wanted to buy a beanie, but I always feel uneasy buying just one thing and so I have to buy two. So, I bought this book because there was one left, I’ve been wanting to buy it and my library doesn’t have it and B&N never has it. So, it was time.

Popular on Netflix: List 2 books you have read and 2 that you have not that are getting the HYPE.

I don’t really know what books are HYPED right now. But, I chose A List of Cages by Robin Roe and Literally by Lucy Keating. I have read, How to Love by Katie Cotugno and You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner and I really loved them, both.

Comedies: A Funny Book

26836966

This book had me laughing-out-loud so much. It’s hilarious! This book definitely needs comic relief because it’s a heavy read. I highly recommend it. Here’s one of my favorite lines: “Maybe Dracula wasn’t a vampire, just a raging alcoholic who was constantly hungover” (115, Sutherland). 

Drama: Character that is a drama king or queen?

I have two for this. I always feel that Jennifer E. Smith has dramatic characters. See my review of This Is What Happy Looks Like  haha, Ellie bothered me, a bit. Belly from The Summer trilogy, she’s just dramatic af! But, she’s supposed to be.

Cartoons: A Book with a cartoon on the cover.

41v58xl9-ll-_sx332_bo1204203200_

I haven’t read this yet, but I want to. It’s so cute and I have heard great reviews!

Watch Again: A series book you want to read again.

wceggdunlca8rphoz66abhhs4ri12vqgoobrgbrkx2plcphekar3aiznsrpughkiodzcs4glrs3lnnbucm2t1aksq57d2qayycysasr1fvq5idkycbwtzawmsmq7pk

Fun fact about me. I’ve only ever read about three series. The Selection, The Summer I Turned Pretty – I think those are the only ones?? Dreamology by Lucy Keating. Her second novel just came out and I’ve been seeing people reading this which makes me so happy because it’s a great, cute book. I’d re-read it again.

Documentaries: A nonfiction you’d recommend to all.

Image result for katie heaney never have i ever

This is my favorite memoir. It’s funny and it’s so genuine. If you’re in your 20s, I highly recommend this. It’s about Katie, who has never been kissed and her crazy somewhat-dating journey.

Action & Adventure: An action packed book.

18584855

If you’ve read this, you’re probably like “what??” or you’re not. I think this was pretty action-packed for me. Especially toward the ending. However, I just don’t read action-packed books because I read little contemporaries don’t judge me.

New Releases:What is a new release you’re excited about?

Connor Franta’s new book is coming out on Tuesday 4/18, I can’t wait. I pre-ordered it, I really loved his first book. This is more of a artsy book but nonetheless I love Connor’s work. Also, the last Lara Jean book is out May 2nd and my heart isn’t ready but I can’t wait to see where it’s going to end. If you don’t see me for a while, the book has broken my heart and I cannot go on aka a book hangover.

So, tell me. What are you currently watching on Netflix? I decide to start F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I have watch so many episodes of Friends, but I want to watch it from the beginning to the end.

2016 End of the Year Survey


Today, I’m doing the End of the Year Survey created by Jamie at Perpetual Page Turner! I did this last year and I love doing it. Through this survey, you’ll know more about my reading year! If you want to do the survey, click here to go to Jamie’s post.

Number Of Books You Read: 40
Number of Re-Reads: None
Genre You Read The Most From: Contemporary, LGBTQIA+

 

best-YA-books-2014

1. Best Book You Read In 2016?

22692740

I believe Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin was my favorite book of the year. Nothing else really topped it!

 

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?  Acr297196509774415983

I was so excited for The Haters by Jesse Andrews to come out and I was so disappointed when I picked it up and my expectations weren’t met. It wasn’t the road-trip I imagined and the dirty humor just got annoying with time rather than funny anymore. Also, the fact that Corey lied about having a peanut allergy threw me off.

 

 3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?  I was surprised I enjoyed this because I wasn’t sure how I would feel not having known anything about Sherlock. But, I loved it!

23272028

 4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I’ve been pushing Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin on EVERYONE since I read it this summer. I only know one to two people who have gotten it because of me. But, that’s okay!

 5. Best series you started in 2016? Best Sequel of 2016? Best Series Ender of 2016?

This wasn’t my year for series, but I did start Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs!

 6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2016?25486998

OMG!! Kasie West. I started P.S. I Like You, her 2016 release and I loved it. It led me to the Distance Between Us and now I want to keep binging all of her books! Thank goodness for more Kasie books in 2017! Update: I have read all of her Contemporary and now I am sad.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?

This is the hardest question for me, I’m going with Heartless which I just finished for my book club, the Story Squad. I listened to it on audio and it was the best way to read it! It was soo good!! I haven’t ever read Marissa Meyer – this is my first retelling ever.

 

 8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

With Malice by Elieen Cook, though it’s on my Most Disappointing Reads of 2016 list, I really enjoyed the pace and thrill of the book! I read it until 3am one night to finish because I couldn’t stop.

 9. Book You Read In 2016 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

I’ll probably re-read The Sun is Also A Star, I want to listen to the audiobook!

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2016?WceGgDUNlCA8RPHOz66AbHHs4RI12Vqg+OoBRGBrKx2plCphEkAr3aizNSRpuGHkIoDZcS4gLRs3LNNbucM2t1akSQ57d2QayYcYsAsr1FVQ5iDKyCBWtzAWMsmQ+7PK

Dreamology by Lucy Keating, gorgeous!

11. Most memorable character of 2016?

Parker from Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom! She’s the bomb and I will never forget her. She is very memorable, I’ll never forget her!

 12. Most beautifully written book read in 2016?

To be honest, I don’t think I read many books that I thought were written nicely or anything! Most of the books I read were just easy to read.

13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2016?

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon because in this book you’re faced with thinking about fate and destiny and really what you would do in Natasha & Daniel’s situation.

 14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2016 to finally read? 

I really read many debuts and new releases this year. But, I can’t believe I didn’t read (well I listened to) Mindy Kaling’s book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? until 2016! It was funny and I loved reading about her life before The Office/The Mindy Project.

 15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2016?

I really don’t have any quotes that have stuck with me throughout the year.

16.Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2016?

Gideon and Kyle from Been Here All Along by Sandy Hall. They were so cute, I loved them. 23854755

Tessa Hart’s world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom for pop sensation Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it’s like his speaking directly to her…

Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.

When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…

Told through tweets, direct messages, and police transcripts, this thriller for the online generation will keep you guessing right up to the shocking end

❄️🎄The Bookmas Book Tag ❄️🎄


Image result for christmas gif tumblr

This tag was created by Sophie’s Series on YouTube. I recently did her Booksgiving Tag for Thanksgiving. I also posted this tag on my channel.


The Lovebirds: Which two characters would you like to see under the mistletoe?  Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean Covey, my main OTP. (tatbilb)Image result for gif tumblr mistletoe
The Mismatched: Which unlikely pair of characters would get stuck under the mistletoe?   Toby and Wyatt from The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. Wyatt would die if Toby got him under the mistletoe! 17838528
The Grinch: Which character would spend the day with their face in a knot? I’m picking Lily in this sequel.. I haven’t finished it because tbh she was annoying me. But, she’s been a Grinch in this book. 26258306
The Naughty List: Which character has angered so many people that nobody felt like getting them a gift? I feel bad, but I always use Martin from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli for these kind of questions. But, he did a lot of people in Simon’s life wrong!! Image result for simon vs the homosapien agenda
The Fraud: Which character would assign a fake date to the gathering, just so they don’t appear alone?  Norah from Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Just from the book, Norah asks Nick to be her boyfriend for a night. So, I think she’s perfect for this question.

Image result for nick and norah's infinite playlist book
The Caroler: Which character does everybody have to yell at to stop singing Christmas songs?  This question was really hard since I don’t know too many characters that would be super Christmas AF. I chose Harriet from Geek Girl. I think she would get wrapped up in the spirit of Christmas and singing her little heart out! Image result for christmas caroling gif
The Klutz: Which character accidentally knocks over the Christmas tree? Ben from Paper Towns, I could see it. He’d be talking to Lacey and take too many steps back and the tree would be all over! Image result for knocking over christmas tree gif tumblr
The Snooper: Which character would ruin all of their surprises by trying to figure out what all the gifts are? Kitty from TATBILB.

The Booksgiving Book Tag


Happy Thanksgiving! SophiesSeries on YouTube created this awesome book tag just in time for Thanksgiving! I love it so much and I just have to do it! Feel free to answer any of the questions in the comments.

thanksgiving


The Wrangler/Savior: What character would be most likely to chase after a turkey and what character would be most likely to save it?  I’m going with two characters from Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, Enoch would chase after the turkey, and Olive would want to save it. Image result for thanksgiving gifs

The Drama King/Queen: What book character would be most likely to start an argument at the table?   Celeste from the Selection Series, this is just her personality and she would make everyone angry during dinner by saying something rude.

The Space Cadet: What character would accidentally set the oven on fire? Clark from The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, I could definitely see him going off to his office or something and forgetting that he put something in the oven! 

The Loner: What character would most likely be a loner on Thanksgiving? (because, let’s face it, no one wants them there). – Martin from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda because he’s just not the best person and everyone probably hates him.

Image result for simon vs the homosapien agenda

The Perfectionist: What character would be too preoccupied making sure that everything at the event is absolutely PERFECT? Lara Jean and Margot from TATBILB! They are both always organized and making sure everything is the best it can be. Their Christmas party was perfect, I’m sure they’d even pull out the piano again and make thanksgiving themed cupcakes!

The Embarrassment: Which fictional character has a littleee too much (AKA a LOT) of the holiday spiced apple cocktail? James from True Letters From A Fictional Life by Kenneth Logan. James tends to drink a lot, so much that he ends up saying things he shouldn’t.

What book are you least thankful for this year? I’m not least thankful for any book because I’m thankful for books.

What book are you MOST thankful for? I am thankful for many books, especially the books I’ve read this year. But, I’m really thankful to Jenny Han for writing my favorite soon to be series, To all the boys I’ve loved before, it means so much to me. 

Name one random thing that you’re thankful for 🙂 I’m thankful for my cats because they always make me happy when I need it the most. 

The Beauty and the Beast Book Tag


Image result for beauty and the beast gif

Beauty and the Beast has been releasing many teasers and a full trailer for the live action movie. This movie is on my TO WATCH for 2017, for sure. I was tagged by A Lovelorn Virgo and  Book Adventures  to do this tag and I’m so excited! Out of all the Disney princesses, Belle has always been my favorite. I had a Belle dress that I never wanted to take off. Thanks to these two lovely bloggers for tagging me in this, it’s perfect! Let’s get into the tag.


1. “TALE AS OLD AS TIME” – A POPULAR THEME, TROPE OR SETTING YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED OF READING.

23854755

I really like reading the LGBTQIA trope of the just friends but becomes something more or they both like each other and the other doesn’t know.

2. BELLE – A BOOK YOU BOUGHT FOR IT’S BEAUTIFUL COVER THAT’S JUST AS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE TOO

Yoon_9780553496680_jkt_all_r1.indd

I can’t think of many books that I’ve bought recently because of the cover, sometimes it’s more because I’ve heard about the book so I wanted to read it. But, I got this book for Nicola Yoon because I loved Everything Everything, and the cover is stunning! I’ve read some of the book and I’ve heard incredible reviews about it.

3. BEAST – A BOOK YOU DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH FROM BUT PLEASANTLY SURPRISED YOU. WceGgDUNlCA8RPHOz66AbHHs4RI12Vqg+OoBRGBrKx2plCphEkAr3aizNSRpuGHkIoDZcS4gLRs3LNNbucM2t1akSQ57d2QayYcYsAsr1FVQ5iDKyCBWtzAWMsmQ+7PK

I hadn’t heard too much buzz about this book but my friend recommended it and I saw some Booktubers talking about it, so I picked it up and I couldn’t put it down! I really loved this book and I didn’t think I would as much as I did.

4. GASTON – A BOOK EVERYONE LOVES THAT YOU DON’T

Acr297196509774415983

A lot of people have really liked this book, however I’m one that didn’t. I really liked Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, his first book and I was so excited for this. Unfortunately, it fell short for me and I didn’t think it was really a road-trip book as it was said to be. Though, I really appreciated the diversity in this book and there’s a food allergy which is rare.

5. LEFOU – A LOYAL SIDEKICK YOU CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE MORE THAN THEIR COUNTER PART.

23272028

I really loved Jamie in ASIC, him and Charlotte were a great team and really worked great together. I just loved both of them, but Jamie was a very realistic sidekick.

6. MRS POTTS, CHIP, LUMIER & COGSWORTH – A BOOK THAT HELPED YOU THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME OR THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING VALUABLE.

Image result for beauty and the beast gif

Paper Towns by John Green is a book that holds a place in my heart because it got me into reading the first time during high school and John Green got me back into reading around 2014.

7. “SOMETHING THERE” – A BOOK OR A SERIES THAT YOU WEREN’T INTO AT FIRST BUT PICKED UP TOWARDS THE END.

miss-peregrines-room-for-peculiar-children

I really put this book off because I wasn’t sure if I was going to want to read it. I saw the movie and it was fantastic which led me to read the book in two days.

8. “BE OUR GUEST” – A FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU’D LOVE TO HAVE OVER FOR DINNER

9781442426702_p0_v5_s260x420

I can’t go any tag without mentioning this book… I’d love to have Lara Jean over for dinner! It would be so much fun, then we could bake and stuff after!


Image result for beauty and the beast gif be our guest

I tag anyone who wants to do this!
