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?
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.
I FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY THERE ARE 12 COLLECTOR’S EDITIONS.
THERE’S ONE FOR EACH ANIMAL IN THE ZODIAC.
YES, IT TOOK ME THAT LONG TO REALIZE.
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
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.
