Happy Tuesday Bibliofriends,
I saw this great tag on Witty and Sarcastic Book Club blog and as a recent Netflix convert I thought it would be the perfect post to do for Tag Tuesday! I was going to do a Book answer and a Netflix answer for each prompt but as I’ve pretty much been binging different seasons of the same TV shows, they mostly would have come out as the same!
Things I’ve been loving on Netflix: Money Heist, The Crown and The Umbrella Academy (almost finished that series) and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (it was so weird but so fun!).
Things I’m excited to watch soon: Emily in Paris, Enola Holmes and finally getting round to watching the Shadowhunters series!

Recently Finished- the last book you finished
All the Wandering Light (Even the Darkest Stars #2) by Heather Fawcett – this series is really wonderful and the setting is so unique – loved it!
Top Picks- A book that was recommended to you based on books you have previously read
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I still haven’t read it yet!
Recently Added- the last book you bought
I bought several if that counts…? I never buy just 1 book at a time! 😂 And by several, I mean 5!
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
The Near Witch by V.E. Schwab
All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
Popular on Netflix- Books that everyone knows about (2 you’ve read and 2 you have no interest in)
Two I’ve read are The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (AMAZING!!! 😍 – review here) and The Queen of Nothing (Folk of the Air Series) by Holly Black.
Two I have no interest in are finishing, these were much harder to pick! To All the Boys I Loved Before series – I only ever managed book 1 but it’s just not a series for me. Then maybe Daisy Jones and the Six – it just just doesn’t call out enough to me to buy it and read it even though I know lots of people have loved it.
Comedies- a funny book
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I listened to it as an audiobook and it was made even the more funnier by the incredible narrator Martin Jarvis! Loved it!
Dramas- a character who is a drama king/queen
Dare I say Rhysand from ACOTAR series… if you know, you know! 😉
Animated- a book with cartoons on the cover
I don’t know if these count as cartoons in the traditional sense by Hag: Forgotten Folk Stories Retold has some freakishly sinister looking pictures on the front cover!
Watch It Again- a book/series you want to reread
Oh my, so many!
The Throne of Glass series – because I love it so much and I feel like I need to read it again slowly rather than just hurtle through it to find out what happens!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – because it’s my favourite book of the whole year!
Documentaries- a non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone
A Life on Our Planet by David Attenborough. I recently finished this (review to come soon) but I think it’s so vital people read it. Yes there are some holes there and it has its issues and counter arguments like any political/global issue does but I feel that our planet, our animals and our environments need us to be the positive voice that protects them rather than carries on destroying them.
Action and Adventure- an action-packed book
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – The pages are packed with 80s references, Easter Eggs and pop culture. It’s one of my all-time favourites and could so easily have been in my ‘Watch It Again’ list! I’m eagerly awaiting Ready Player Two which is hopefully coming out later this month!
TAG – you’re it!! Feel free to have a go at this tag yourself and link it back to my blog if you want! Drop me a comment and let me know which Never Have I Ever you’d be most guilty of!
Have a great week friends!
