The Netflix Book Tag // Sprinkles of Dreams

The Netflix Book Tag // In Which I’m a Lil(y) Rebel …

… and I promise that this is the second and last time I’ll be using this pun in any of my blog posts!! I can’t make any promises for comments, though. Or text messages. Or any other forms of communication I use. (It’s hard to make up puns for my name, okay.)

But let’s move on to the actual post!

I was tagged by Shannon @ Shelfish For Books for The Netflix Book Tag about a month ago, and even though I don’t even have a Netflix account [and I can hear you collectively gasping in horror], here I am, calling an end to my procrastination skills, and finally, finally giving you the answers you didn’t know you’d all been waiting for. (😊)

The tag was originally created by A Darker Shade of Whitney on YouTube, and if you are an avid BookTube fan, consider this your official invitation to stalk her videos. 👏🏻

The last book you finished reading

The Foxhole Court (All for the Game #1) by Nora Sakavic

The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic—yes, I finally started reading the All for the Game series!! I know at least one (1) person who’s proud of me. (And I’m not talking about myself, in case you were wondering.)

2. Top Picks
A book/books that have been recommended to you based on books you have previously read

Kat recommended You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan to me, because I read We are Okay, which was my first Nina LaCour novel (and which I found pretty impressive!).

The last book you bought

The Young Elites by Marie Lu

The Young Elites by Marie Lu isn’t the last book I bought, but it is the most recent addition to my physical book collection (thank you so much, Hamad! 💙), and I’m so tempted to abandon all my current reads for it.

In case you haven’t read it yet, please do yourself a favor, and remedy that!

4. Popular on Netflix
Books that everyone knows about (2 you’ve read and 2 you have no interest* in reading)

I’m pretty sure everyone knows (and loves 😼) Harry Potter, and I think everyone knows (of) The Bell Jar as well—it’s a classic that I only read this year, and that I can only whole-heartedly recommend!

*Being the rebel that I am, I love deviating from tags, so I decided to answer “2 [books] you haven’t read yet, but really want to” instead (because let’s focus on the positive things in life!!):

Have I mentioned more than a million times how much I adore Jane Austen? I’ve enjoyed every book of hers I’ve read so far, and I can’t believe I haven’t gotten around to reading her most popular one, Pride and Prejudice, yet.

And everyone who’s witnessed my Mid-Year Book Freak Out knows how much I adore Strange the Dreamer, so I’m naturally dying to read Muse of Nightmares. I can’t unsee the squished letters of “Nightmares”, though … someone please tell me it’s getting fixed before the official release?? I get so anxious looking at it. 😭

banner5. Comedies
A funny book

To be honest … I can’t really think of one.

I know that while reading Harry Potter, Harry’s thoughts, Ron’s commentary, and the Weasley twins amuse me on numerous occasions, but I wouldn’t really call it a “funny book”. And while it doesn’t take much for me to laugh in real life—I couldn’t win a staring contest to save my life—”funny” isn’t a word I use to describe books very often.

And “very often” is actually a negligible part of that sentence.

(Anyone have any recommendations for me? 💓)

6. Dramas
A character who is a drama queen/king

I’d say Monty from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is pretty dramatic.

banner
7. Animated
A book with cartoons on the cover

Heartstopper by Alice Oseman

Heartstopper by Alice Oseman [10/10 recommend!!] has my heart and soul.

banner
8. Watch It Again
A book/book series that you want to re-read

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

The Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo. I can’t wait for the third book (+ King of Scars)!!

banner
9. Documentaries
A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Book Cover

We Should all Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and here is why.

If you didn’t know this about me already; next to Young Adult books (and a few other genres), a small, but considerable amount of the books I read are actually non-fiction, and I have a soft spot in my heart for memoirs, and essays that comment on social issues.

So if anyone is looking for non-fiction book recommendations, let me know! 🙂

10. Action and Adventure
An action packed book

See #8. 🦅

11. New Releases
A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black

Let’s all pretend The Wicked King is coming out soon, and live in blissful denial for a while?

  1. What a cute tag! I would be super interested in a nonfiction book recommendation post from you. I’ve been thinking of doing one myself as well. I think some really important books don’t get as much attention from the book blogging community as they should. Of course, lots of people read just to experience new and fun worlds but I’d love to see a little bit more talk about non fiction.

    1. I think so, too! It’s so creative. 🙂

      I completely agree with you, I feel like non-fiction doesn’t get enough love, and it’s such a shame, because I’ve learned so much from it. I’ll definitely write one, then. 😊 And I’d love to read your non-fiction recommendations as well!

      Thanks for your lovely comment, Libby! ☺️💕

  2. Ahh, this post was a lil(y) amazing! 😉

    I’m sorry, but I love puns, and…I loved the title of this post. XD This tag is so cute, and being as obsessed with books and Netflix as I am, I loved reading it! I also adored seeing Harry Potter there, because is it really a tag if there’s no Harry Potter?!

    1. Ahhh bless you for always validating my puns (and Hamilton obsession). :’)

      Yayy, thank you so much, Olivia, I’m so happy to hear that!! And how did I not know about your Netflix obsession sdnjfdsnf what do you watch?? (Also, please consider yourself tagged for this! 💓)

      Potterheads, always. ⚡️

      1. AHH I WILL ALWAYS VALIDATE PUNS AND HAMILTON AND HARRY POTTER. After all this time? Always. 😉

        You’re welcome! Hehe, I’m currently watching Glee (I’m so obsessed eek), A Series of Unfortunate Events, and sometimes the Great British Baking Show (I’m a grandma at heart XD) but in the past I’ve finished Gilmore Girls and Friends. What about you?

        YES! (See above Harry Potter reference. ;))

        1. Ahhh you’re quoting Harry Potter back to me!! :”)

          I stopped watching Glee after season three, I think, but maybe I should continue with it (??) … and sdnfjdnjsdf Gilmore Girls and Friends are two out of my three all-time favorite shows!! ❤ The third one is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, I love it so much. 💘

          1. HAHA OF COURSE!

            Oh, I can see why, after season 3 half the cast graduates in the show so things change a lot…but I think it’s worth continuing. 😉

            AHHH! I didn’t know you loved Gilmore Girls and Friends, too! *screeches* I have to ask…are you team Dean, Jess, or Logan?

            1. I’ll definitely put it back on my to-watch list! 🙂 I remember really liking their Pretty/Unpretty cover.

              None, actually, haha. I used to be Team Logan, and Team Jess-who’s-responsible, but I don’t have strong feelings about it anymore. What about you? 🙂

                1. Haha, it’s true!! They have so much in common, and really connect on an intellectual level, but he was such a mess 98% of the time. (And by the time he wasn’t, I was leaning towards Logan/Rory already.)

                  Ohh, the revival was so disappointing in regards to Logan/Rory. 😦

                  1. That’s such a good way to describe it! I loved how they both loved reading, but Jess was just…*shakes head*

                    Oh my goodness, it was! When I say I’m team Rory and Logan, I mean in the real show, because I really didn’t approve of their relationship in the revival. 😔

    1. Yess, I did!! I’m on book three now, and it’s my favorite so far! I still haven’t decided on what to rate any of the books, though, but I’ll let you know, when I manage to untangle my thoughts. 😄

      I’m guessing you really liked the series? 💓

  3. Oh yay, I appeared in this tag! I hope you will enjoy You Know Me Well whenever you get around to reading it. It’s not heavy and way way less of a character study, but it is fun. It’s one of those feel good books 😀
