Productivity Book Tag

I thought I was the only person who measured my worth in productivity.

Apparently that behavior is much more common than I thought!

Sam created this book tag and I love it SO much.

(Go admire her new graphics.)

Talking about books is productive.

Right? Right. Shush.

 

Planning | A book that is completely thought out

Belinda Blinked 4 is a gorram masterpiece.

Rocky Flinstone plotted for once!

He even added plot twists!

Can you believe!?

 

 

Focus | A book that kept your undivided attention

I kept seeing Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me on queer booklists and assumed it was just another YA contemporary.

Laura Dean

Then, to my utter confusion, I found it in the graphic novel section at Secret Garden Books.

That changed everything.

I finished this book in about 20 minutes and screamed, “HOLY SHIT!” in response to the events on 219.

I got invested.

 

Delegating | A book that should have been a series

Life and Death might have worked better as a series.

Life and Death

I would have liked seeing Meyer gender-swap the entire Twilight saga.

The current ending to this book feels forced.

Meyer needed more room to explore the themes she lobbied so hard for in the book’s introduction.

 

Small goals | Name a book below 150 pages that you loved

This is the cutest book on queer and trans identities you will ever read.

The information inside is ACTUALLY HELPFUL and easy to follow.

I’m into it!

 

Peak Hours | A series you could only read at a certain time

I’m in the middle of a number of very intense books.

I can only read Trust Women: A Progressive Christian Argument for Reproductive JusticeThe Power, and Eating Animals when I’m feeling emotionally well.

In other news, I may never finish The Hate U Give. (Should I just accept that and move on?)

 

Lists | A book that you finally crossed off your TBR

I read The Dept. of Speculation after years of keeping it on my shelf…and I loved it! Really!

Dept

Glad I finally finished a book I purchased FOUR YEARS AGO!

Now to finish the thousands of other books I own.

 

Proactive | A book that is/was ahead of its time

I wasn’t ready for David Levithan’s Every Day.

Every Day

His gender-bending, body-surfing protagonist made me question everything I believed about gender, sexuality, and souls.

I did not like having my beliefs challenged by YA fiction.

While I’m still not the biggest fan of Levithan’s books, I admire the work he did with this one. This book spawned a film that I really enjoyed.

 

Declutter | A series you wish you could unread

I wish I could unread either Fruits Basket or The Princess Diaries series.

I want to experience the joy of reading both series for the first time.

 

Multi-tasking | Books that you read at the same time

I don’t care to mention how many books I’m in the middle of currently.

No, thank you.

 

Work on this tag and cross it off you’re list.

You’ll feel great afterward.

Author:

She/her. 4w3. Lover of vegan cream cheese and performative angst. In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
