Netflix Book Tag!

Hey guys! I found this tag when I was scrolling through some BookTube vids and it seemed like a really fun one to do! I’m on Netflix every day and I’ve been slowly making my way through Friends so this tag seems very appropriate right now. I don’t know who the original creator is but all credit goes to them, whoever they are. Hope you enjoy!

Nightfall

Recently watched: The last book you finished reading

The last book I finished was Nightfall and I think this is possibly one of the worst books I have ever read. It was so awful. The writing was terrible, it didn’t flow together at all. I hated the characters so much! They had zero personality and despite being stranded on an island in the dark, with weird creatures trying to kill them, there was no emotion from them or any sense of urgency to escape. It makes me really angry that they compared this to The Maze Runner. This is nothing like that series and it’s just an insult to James Dashner. I would be very happy if I never saw this book again.

How I Choose My Books Tag!

Hey guys! First of, sorry for not posting on Wednesday! I’ve been ill and it’s one that just leaves you feeling drained afterwards. I’ve had no energy to do anything, really. I hope today’s post makes up for it! I found this tag and it looked pretty interesting, like something I’d enjoy doing! Unfortunately, I do not know who the creator was so I am unable to tag them.

A Stranger in the House

Find a book on your shelves or e-reader with a blue cover. What made you want to pick up this book?

I picked this up because I really liked Shari’s first book The Couple Next Door. It only took me a day to read this which is what I like about her writing. Her books are easy to read and they help me get out of book slumps. I did really like this book at the time but it’s not very memorable because I honestly can’t remember a single thing about it. I read it in July 2017 and I looked at my comments from my wrap up post to try and jog my memory but I still can’t remember anything about it.

Goodreads Book Tag!

Hey guys! I am very late to this book tag but I’m late for a lot of things so it doesn’t really surprise me. I stumbled across this whilst searching for book tags to do and it looked like a lot of fun! So here we go!

Batman Nightwalker

What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?

I finished this on the 8th Feb and posted a review for it yesterday! It wasn’t on my February TBR so I’m already failing my monthly TBR! It was a really great read and I loved Bruce very much! Would have loved more fight scenes though because they were awesome! Very excited for Catwoman now!

The Candy Book Tag!

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I did a book tag. I think my last one was in June? Haven’t really seen any since that I have felt like doing but then this one caught my eye! I mean, I really like food and I really like books, so it’s the perfect book tag! To avoid repeating a lot of what I’ve said in my previous tags, I’ll only talk about books I’ve read or seen on the shelves this year. So lets get into it!

Turtles All the Way DownApples: Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.

Everyone is literally raving about this book. Like full on raving about it. It is probably a very deep and meaningful book because it’s written by John Green, but I have no interest in reading it. I have read a few of his other books, didn’t like them, so I won’t be reading this one. I just don’t enjoy his style of writing and find his books very difficult to read, even if he writes very relatable books. The only one I liked was The Fault in Our Stars so do with that what you will.

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag!

Hey guys! I have seen quite a few people doing this tag recently and thought I’d join in! It’s the perfect tag to do because we are halfway through the year already which is insane! Like how is it June already? Madness. This tag looked like a lot of fun and I am excited to do it! I hope you enjoy!

Original creators: ReadLikeWildfire & Earl Grey Books

If We Were Villains

1) Best book you’ve read so far in 2017 

You all know how much I loved this book! It exceeded all of my expectations and stomped out any doubts I had over the Shakespearian parts! I don’t like Shakespeare but for this book I loved it! Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Totally Should’ve Book Tag!

Since I did the Totally Didn’t book tag on Friday I thought I would do the Totally Should’ve tag today! You can probably tell from the title that this tag is the complete opposite of the Totally Didn’t tag. Again I had to think really hard about my answers and spend the afternoon sitting on my bed frowning at all my books. Some of these questions were actually quite hard! I feel like I’ve used a lot of choices from the last one. I tried to use others but I really couldn’t think of any.

The Host

1) Totally should’ve gotten a sequel

Definitely The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I’m pretty sure the majority of people who read this wanted there to be a sequel and the ending to me implied that there would be a sequel and that their story wasn’t over. But, unfortunately, it’s been like eight years almost and we still don’t have a sequel. I just think there is so much more that can be said about this world and the characters. The Host was such a captivating book once you got past the slow start. I’d read a second book if she ever decided to publish one.

Totally Didn’t Book Tag!

Hey guys! I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this I just saw it on Youtube and thought it was a really fun tag to do! You just basically have a little rant about things that have already happened in books. I had to think really hard about some of the questions because sometimes a book didn’t always come to mind straight away. Anyway, lets get into it!

1) Totally didn’t need to have a sequel/sequels

I didn’t have to think too hard about this because I really, really, really didn’t enjoy the last two books in the Snow Like Ashes trilogy. The first one was amazing! The world building was spot on, the characters were great and it had a solid plot throughout. But I feel like in the next two books it kind of fell apart because the plot was terrible in Ice Like Fire and the characters were so annoying. Frost Like Night was just as bad because that was putting me to sleep. I really think that Snow Like Ashes would have been a lot better as a standalone and it really didn’t need to be a trilogy.
