The Netflix Book Tag

Seen as I am basically already an unofficial Netflix hype girl, I was more than happy when Heather @Frozen Books Blog tagged me to do the Neftlix Book Tag! I am so pumped to answer some questions! Let’s get started!!

RECENTLY WATCHED: The last book you finished reading.

Coincidentally, I have another tab open with the not yet finished review for this book and that is Dear Martin by Nic Stone! It wasn’t an easy read, but a necessary one that I absolutely loved. The actual review should be up soon!

TOP PICKS: A book that has been recommended to you based on books you have previously read. 

To Kill a Kingdom

Uhm, this is actually a tough one … I am currently reading To Kill a Kingdom and on the cover it says for fans of Leigh Bardugo’s writing – does that count? I am going to say it counts, just because in addition to liking Leigh Bardugo, I also ADORE siren and pirate stories, so it would make sense as a recommendation anyway.

RECENTLY ADDED: The last book you bought.

Technically that was also Dear Martin, but since that’s a boring answer, I am going to go with the last book that was delivered to me aka the last book mail I got. And that is the movie tie-in from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

POPULAR ON NETFLIX: Books that everyone knows about. (2 you’ve read and 2 you haven’t read or have no interest in reading.) 

Books I have read:

Books I haven’t read:

Please don’t kill me for not having read HP, but it’s just not going to happen anymore.

COMEDIES: A funny book.

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo (The Epic Crush of Genie Lo #1)

For some reason, I tend to gravitate more towards sad books, but The Epic Crush of Genie Lo is definitely a book that has had me laughing out loud a couple of times.

DRAMAS: A character who is a drama queen/king.

Stealing Candy

I don’t know why this book came to mind, but Candy from Stealing Candy basically enjoyed being kidnapped and decided one of her abductors was hot? So … she scream drama queen to me.

ANIMATED: A book with cartoons on the cover.

We Are Okay

Cartoon may be an overstatement but I do love the illustration on We Are Okay. It is so freaking beautiful and I am in love with the imagery and the colour scheme just as much as I love the story.

WATCH IT AGAIN: A book or series that you want to re-read.

Sooooo … I have said this a lot already, but I do NOT re-read. However, sometimes I go back and check on certain paragraphs and quotes and I have done that the most for Call Me By Your Name recently.

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

I actually struggled to choose a book for this particular question. Born a Crime is a fantastic book that I would definitely recommend, but in the end I want to go with Quiet by Susan Cain, because I think it’s just more generally applicable. It touches upon the differences of introverts and extroverts and how we can understand each other better. I absolutely love it!

ACTION AND ADVENTURE: An action packed book.

My first thought here went to the Wolf by Wolf duology! It has a bike race, deceit and high stakes – if you don’t call that action-packed, then I don’t even know.

NEW RELEASES: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read.

Leah on the Offbeat (Creekwood, #2)

There’s a lot of books I am excited to get my hands on this year. I feel like we just get better and better content each year (with a couple unfortunate exceptions), but Leah on the Offbeat has been on my list for probably the longest time.

I TAG THEE

As always, don’t feel obliged to do the tag if you don’t want to! And let me know your thoughts on my answers in the comments below!

  1. I’m really glad you liked Dear Martin and I’m looking forward to your review 🙂 And I’m glad you’re reading to kill a kingdom- I just read it and loved it! I think it’s fair enough to have not read popular things- and Vampire Academy isn’t worth it anyway (although I kinda missed the boat on it and read it much later and wasn’t into it). Great answers!

    • Dear Martin was great, even though I am struggling with the review. But I will make it work eventually.
      To Kill a Kingdom is SO awesome! I can barely put it down ❤ but sirens and pirates, it's not really a surprise.
      I kind of liked the Vampire Academy as a sort of guilty pleasure (and because I like Zoey Deutch), but since that never continued, I was just sort of over it.

    • I apparently have like 5 books I am known for recommending all the time and Wolf by Wolf is one of them! The use of the German language is abysmal, but I adore the story. And We Are Okay has very little plot and is mostly character driven, but I like everything Nina LaCour writes.

  2. I love the cover for We Are Okay so, so much – seriously, I’m not a cover-buyer, meaning that I always think a whole lot before getting a book, no matter how tempting the book looks, but… there… I don’t know I just want to buy it hahaha. The fact that you love it makes me want to even more. I can’t buy new books right nooooooow Kat, stop reminding me of books I want to buy 😛
    I feel like there are way too many good books releasing this year, I have no idea how we will ever keep up, but I approve your choice here, I can’t wait to read Leah either, I’m sure it will be amazing 😀 x

  4. I can’t believe I still haven’t read We Are Okay. I’ve had it on my shelves for a year now and I agree, that cover and the color scheme: so neat!
    I really want to get my hands on Call me by your name ASAP because omg everybody says it’s such a great read and I really want to read it before I watch the movie which is torture because I REALLY WANT TO WATCH THE MOVIE AHHHHH!!!

    *breathes in and out*

    Okay, I’m not judging you at all, but really? You’ve never read HP? 😮 This is going to be so magic for you to read them for the first time! (It’s kind of my dream to be able to read them again for the first time because these books are my life.)

    Love your answers! :)🖤

    • I love everything Nina LaCour writes. This one is very character driven and slow, but still heartbreaking and beautiful.
      And I read Call Me By Your Name around New Year’s and it became my absolute favourite book of last year and is among my top picks of all time. I am not saying it is perfect, but the way it’s written is amazing!

      Hahaha I know, I know … but I am really not going to read HP. I grew up with the movies, the books weren’t a thing in my country back then and now I have no interest in reading them. It was just wrong timing.

  5. Hello Kat!
    I loved Quiet and I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat! Being an introvert, it was awesome to see introversion being portrayed as a positive and valuable trait rather than a negative one. And I think it is a good read for extroverts as well (so they can understand introverts better!)

  6. […] It is rare that a day goes by that I do not watch something on Netflix, even if it is just on in the background. I have been known to read a book while I have something on Netflix on the TV! This is the perfect tag for me and I was so happy when I found it on Kat’s blog- Life and Other Disasters! […]

  7. Great answers for this tag Kat! 🙂 I read the Vampire Academy series back when it was first released and can’t say I’d recommend it, I think my reading tastes have changed enough that it wouldn’t be as good now you know?
    Also I can’t wait for Leah on the Offbeat, and oh I loved the Wolf by Wolf duology as well. I really need to reread that because it’s been a while since I last picked up the series!
    Great post. 🙂 ❤

  9. Obviously not gonna kill you for not having read Harry Potter haha :)) I’m just curious how that happened since the series is everywhere? Did the idea not intrigue you or did you just keep having it on the TBR?
    Fun tag! And perfect for you haha 🙈🌻💛

  10. Oh my goodness Kat I had no idea you haven’t read HP haha. I guess I’m just so used to the majority of the book blogging community having read it, that I forget there are some who haven’t as well 😂
    I’m sooo excited for Leah on the Off Beat – I really want to get it but I’ve spent a little too much money during my last week in Manchester so I need to save some money lol

    • Hahaha I am a lonely outcast in terms of not reading HP, but I am just a little over it? I found out that there were books waaaay too late (like with movie 3 or something) and then my cousins just told me what was in the books in addition to me being obsessed with the movies. So, I felt like (and I guess I still feel like) I know all about it and reading it now would only be boring and that in turn would ruin my fond memories, you know?
      I don’t have the money for Leah either at the moment, but then I preordered Upside back in the day and read it close to a year later. I am not in an actual rush haha

      • Haha I get that! I know so much about The Hunger Games that I never felt like reading the books or watching the movies.
        Haha yeah I’m not in a rush either – I have plenty of other books to read!

  11. Leah on the Offbeat was ok but I still enjoyed myself! Also wow I can’t believe you’re not going to read Harry Potter but girl it’s fine. At least watch the movies XD

    • I have to admit that I still haven’t read Leah on the Offbeat haha but I just really want to read all of Becky’s books. I always find something to like.
      And of course I’ve seen all the Harry Potter movies! They are the reason I don’t want to read the books. I just saw the movies first and several times, so I didn’t feel like it would be fun to read the books.

      • No worries! We all have big books that we haven’t read (I bought The Hate U Give on release date and I still haven’t read it) along with countless other books. Yea there are things that are different and I’m glad I read it but I never watched any of the movies (except the first one) so I got to enjoy it a lot more. Maybe when your TBR isn’t towering over you, you can read Harry Potter (but when is your TBR not towering over you XD)

        Liked by 1 person

      • The Hate U Give was such a great read! But I definitely get having books at home that you were excited about and still haven’t read. I have TONS of those, which also explains why my TBR will probably never seize to tower over me haha

      • Yea it’s not because I’m not excited about the books. It’s more like other books get priority which for me are usually buddy reads and maybe library books. My TBR shifts a lot so there is a bunch of books still on my shelf left from years ago.
