Tag Thursday – The Netflix Book Tag

Hi all!! I hope you are having a great day! It’s been a while since I’ve done a tag, but I shall finally catch up! Thank you so much to Siobhan @ Siobhan’s Novelties for tagging me!!

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Recently Watched | The Last Book You Finished

I finished this a few days ago, and I loved it, and I 100% recommend it, and I really hope you love it if you read it!


Top Picks | A Book That Has Been Recommended to You Based on What You’ve Previously Read

At first, I didn’t want to read this, but now I kind of do. This has been recommended to me by one certain friend (who is determined to make my TBR insurmountable) because I like brooding broken boys and also because it is an adventure.


Recently Added | The Last Book You Purchased

So, I don’t buy books. I haven’t bought a book since forever. Actually I don’t think I’ve ever bought a book. I’ve been gifted books, I live and breathe library books, but I haven’t bought any. Anyway, this is the latest book that I’ve added to my TBR!!


Popular on Netflix | Books That Everyone Knows (Two You’ve Read, and Two You Have No Interest in Reading)

Two I’ve read: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and The Wicked King by Holly Black. The hype for SOC is real guys. It was absolutely awesome, and I will never stop talking about Kaz and the rest of the crew. TWK was great, definitely a whole lot better than The Cruel Prince.

Um, I can’t think of two? Only one book that I can think of, which is Caravel. It just doesn’t not seem like it’ll be my cup of tea.


Comedies | A Funny Book

This book will always end up as one of the funniest I’ve read. It was awesome, hilarious, and just so relate-able (even though I am not a mother of a toddler or an infant…)


Dramas | A Character Who Is a Drama Queen/King

Cardan is definitely the biggest drama king around. Like really. But he’s also a really great guy in the end, I hope…


Animated | A Book with Cartoons on the Cover

I haven’t read any book with cartoons on the cover, and I don’t have any in my TBR


Watch It Again | A Book or Series You Want to Reread

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardguo is my new favorite book, so I really really want to read it again. I have Crooked Kingdom on hold, so I’ll probably try to read SOC again before CK comes in.


Documentaries | A Nonfiction Book You’d Recommend to Everyone

I don’t read a lot of non fiction outside of what is necessary for school, so I honestly can’t recommend any book.


Action and Adventure | An Action-Packed Book or Series

It’s a series about kids who are spies, so there’s a lot of adventure and action! There are 10 books, I think, in this series!


New Releases | A Book That Just Came Out or Will Be Coming Out Soon That You Can’t Wait to Read

Everybody, and I mean everybody, seems to be excitedly waiting for this book. And I am too! I just really hope that it doesn’t disappoint me.

Monthly Wrap-Up – Jan 2019

Hello everyone! It’s January 31st, a.k.a the last day of the first month of 2019. This is my first ever Monthly Wrap-Up post, and my first one of the year. I’m gonna list the books I’ve read, the most liked/visited posts of the month, and my favorite posts by other bloggers.

Let’s jump in.

Books:


Does My Head Look Big in This? // ★★★☆☆ This book gets a solid three stars. It is a YA Contemporary read and is also considered a diverse book because the main character is Muslim. I liked this book but there were some issues that made me give it three stars.

The Couple Next Door // ★★★☆☆ I liked the book because the mystery was intriguing, the characters had hidden secrets, and you couldn’t trust anyone. This gets a solid three stars.

The Good Girl // ★★1/2 This is an interesting thriller which I originally gave five stars, but reduced to 2.5 after analyzing the pros and cons of the story.

All Dressed in White // ★☆☆☆☆ I gave this one star, because I didn’t like it, I thought the mystery was flat, and I didn’t feel any suspense.

My Lady Jane// ★★★★★Sweet, fun, and something different from my usual read.

The Conspiracy of Us // ★★☆☆☆ It’s partly unbelievable, sometimes implausible, and I just didn’t like it.

The Ends of the World // ★☆☆☆☆ A series that I did not like, but still read to find out the end. I thought it might redeem itself. I thought wrong.



The Recruit | The Dealer | Maximum Security | The Killing | Divine Madness |Man vs Beast


The Fall | Mad Dogs | The Sleepwalker | The General | Brigands M.C. | Shadow Wave

The above twelve books are by Robert Muchamore.


Total Number of Books Read this Month: 19
