Books, Movies, Television

Netflix Book Tag

I didn’t watch any Netflix last week.

Now I’m behind on “Elite”!

I keep adding things to my queue, knowing I can never watch it all.

Is this aspirational or pathetic?

Should I feel guilty for not watching more TV?


Anyway, books.

This is based on my (too-full queue) and inspired by Book Hooked Nook.


Recently Watched: The last book you finished reading

I reread the sixth collector’s edition of Fruits Basket…and cried.

I’m used to reading the story over 23 volumes.

In this edition, Kyo’s love epiphany came sooner than I remembered.

I couldn’t figure out which “real” volume I was on.

I know I’m about halfway through the series.





Top Picks: A book/books that have been recommended to you based on books you have previously read

“Hey, Lauren, you’re a Christian. Have you read-”

DO NOT recommend The Chronicles of Narnia to me AGAIN.

“But they’re such fantastic books! C. S. Lewis was a GENIUS. Then have you read-”

YES, I’ve read The Lord of the Rings.

“Okay, but what about-”

If you mention The Name of the Wind, I will punch you in the teeth.


Recently Added: The last book you bought

I purchased the paperback edition of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

It was $8.00. That’s practically free.

It got kind of banged-up on the way home, but it’s fine.


Popular On Netflix: Books that everyone knows about

(2 you’ve read and 2 you have no interest in reading)

I’ve read Fates and Furies and Fangirl. The “F” motif was unintentional.

For books I haven’t read, I WILL NOT READ Leah on the Offbeat or A Court of Mist and Fury.

I tried reading ACOTAR, but I didn’t make it past page 50.

And I don’t think I could take an entire book of Leah.


Comedies: A funny book

The Princess Bride is an underrated classic.

I’ve read the book maybe 10 times; it only gets funnier.


Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king

This is why I hate Adriane: she overreacts about EVERYTHING.

She constantly screams at Kara for not taking magic seriously.

She falls in a deep, abiding love with Zach after three hours.

Then she does fight choreography? To show off? Ugh, it’s the grossest.

Half of her dialogue is, “SOMEBODY HURT STORMBRINGER!”


Animated: A book with cartoons on the cover

Jo is my favorite. That’s not relevant, BUT IT’S IMPORTANT.

Elliott Bay was selling Lumberjanes character patches. I may need to purchase one.


Watch It Again: A book/book series that you want to re-read

I brought home The Raven Cycle this summer so I could reread it.

I haven’t made time.

But I need it. I need Ronan back in my life.


Documentaries: A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone

Go read Originals right now.

It will change your life.

Adam Grant is my research hero.


Action and Adventure: An action-packed book

Image result for selection series the one

Weird, right? A series about a beauty contest shouldn’t have ended with rebels shooting citizens in the face.


New Releases: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait for

I’m losing my mind over The Dreamer Trilogy.

I need to know the release date.

Or do I? Wayward Son won’t be released until 2020. That daily reminder bums me out.
