Netflix Book Tag

I saw this Tag over on Kristin Kraves Books Blog and as I love Netflix and books I thought this was a great Tag.

Finished Red. White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston the day of writing this post! So good!

All three of these books I’ve read based on recommendations from BookTubers and Bookstagramers who have similar tastes to me. All of them I absolutely love.

I’ve read both Harry Potter series and the Twilight Saga and I haven’t read House of Earth and Blood and Chain of Gold.

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lmony Snicket is a series that although not meant to be conventionally funny is exceptionally witty!

Constantine, the priest from ‘The Bear and the Nightingale’ by Katherine Arden. Honestly the biggest drama King I’ve ever read, he drove me mental as a character.

There are so many series that I want to reread its crazy!

The Forest Feast is a vegetarian recipe book that also contains some absolutely stunning photos and can double as a gorgous coffee table book!

The entire Throne of Glass series is utterly action packed!

I tag:

The Reading Fairy

Bionic Bookworm

Novels and Notions

The Critiquing Chemist

The Not So Perfect Book Tag

I saw this tag over on Jenna @ Bookmark Your Thoughts and I knew I wanted to have a go at this tag.

I absolutely love the Idea of looking at the books that aren’t quite perfect.

Contemporary Romance stories are ones that I’ve only recently gotten into. ‘Forever Interupted’ was one that I found was a bit farfetched. Not the concept of coping after loss but just the instant love of the characters and the irrationality of some. Just really left a bad taste in my mouth about the genre, and I’ve really been enjoying reading them!

This is a book that I am currently reading and am about fifteen chapter into. The dialoge has already made me cringe so much!

I don’t have any books set in Australia because even though I am Australian I’ve found that I really don’t like reading books set here.

As much as I love the Twilight Saga and love the characters within the story, Bella as a main character is one that I definitely find annoying. She can be so whiney at times that I just want to skip to the part where she stops complaining. This seems to be particularly pertient to the first book.

Why are you complaining about moving to Forks?! You chose to do it!

I can’t really think of any, I try to research the stories a lot before I pick up a book. Don’t want to waste my monry buying something I’m not going to enjoy.

I’m not sure if he would be classified as a ‘friend’ to our main character Vasalisa, but the priest Constantine is probably one of the worst characters I’ve ever encountered in a story. He is so selfish and always blames others for his thoughts feelings and actions. He is also more than willing to sacrafice a devoted follower to save himself.

Probably one of the few characters I actually hate.

Jake. Jake. Jake. Jake. Jake.

To say he is controlling is an understatement. He would be the actual wprst partnet ever!


I would have to say the Neverseen in the Keeper of Lost Cities series. Honestly their plans are aways so good!

The Fang family from ‘The Poppy War’ are the actual worst people!

The Sky in the Deep generally disappointed me and the plot twist was one that I guessed from the beginning and I am awful at predicting these things.

Instalove is something that I just want to avoid, it just gets so frustrating. I don’t get it at all.

I don’t know what it is about these covers but I walked past this series so many times in the book store because I just couldn’t get around them!

The Geography of Lost things definitely disappointed me, especially the ending.

Its not that I didn’t enjoy reading The Queen of Nothing’ by Holly Black but I don’t understand that it was so hyped.

Who Am I? Tag

I definitely WANT to say fantasy for this but it would definitely be a contemporary, probably with a late 20’s main character who people don’t really care to read about.

Maybe Victoria from The Twilight Saga, She definitely is insane but I can understand that she went a bit more off her rocker after James was killed by Edward and his family.

Maybe Calla from ‘The Simple Wild’ by K.A. Tucker. I definitely want to go to Alaska, however I am definitely more high maintenance.

I loved the Saddle Club books when I was younger but now, obviously, not so much.

As much as I probably wouldn’t be as brave or as badass I would definitely want to be Aelin from ‘Kingdom of Ash’.

I think the fact that I always have multiple books on the go is indicative of my personality. I am constantly focusing on a million different things and once and trying to complete all of them. I also really enjoy reading and prefer spending my time completing activities where I am by myself or with a select few people.

I definitely learnt how to challenge myself from reading and that I am more capable than I believe I am. I’ve definitely accepted myself more from reading as well.

The Folk of the Air Book Tag

As I was perusing the reader page on wordpress I came across the Folk of the Air tag on Xandra at Starry Sky Books Blog.

I waited until after I had finally read ‘Queen of Nothing’ the conclusion to the Folk of the Air Trilogy to complete this tag and YAY, I’ve finally read it and feel like I can now answer these questions.

Celana Sardothian from the ‘Throne of Glass’ Series hands down!

personally, I would say Jorgen Weight from ‘Skyward’ by Brandon Sanderson. I did not like him one bit at the beginning of the story.

Again ‘Skyward’ by Brandon Sanderson. I honestly was not expecting the twist that we got and I cannot wait to pick up the next book.

Currently Tam from the ‘Keeper of Lost Cities’ Series. Where things left off I definitely feel deceived by Tam, but maybe I’ll be deceived a second time, who knows.

The one that comes to mind straight away is ‘Heir of Fire’ by Sarah J. Maas in the Throne of Glass series.

Angus Delaney, from ‘Chasing River’ by K.A.Tucker. I mean he is kind of key in our two characters meeting but he just makes me so mad that we could really do without him.

Matt from ‘This is Where it Ends’ by Marieke Nijkamp. Honestly throughout the whole story I wanted to just protect him and honestly just so many emotions.

Victoria from the Twilight Saga. She is one determined Character who does not stop. She just keeps going trying to get what she wants.

These are all books that I really know very little about but they are all books that I really want to get to it.

Skyward, Skyward, Skyward!

‘Exile’ by Shannon Messenger, the second book in the ‘Keeper of Lost Cities’ series. I enjoyed keeper of Lost Cities because it’s a killer series and the first book introduces everything. ‘Exile’ just adds so many more layers to the world and I love it.

The folk of the Air series. simple as that.

12 days of Christmas Book Tag

I saw this tag over on Paper Fury’s Blog and thought it was perfect for the holiday season!

Definitely ‘Daisy Jones and the Six’ by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This book honestly changed my reading habits in 2019.

Achilles and Patroclus from the song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I was genuinely in tears by the end of this story. They are one of the best pairings ever!

I recently finished reading the ‘Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard’ series by Rick Rirodan and I absolutely fell in love. I love the peak of characters from other Rick Riordan stories as well as the representation that all three books have.

Always.

I love other series but my go to all the time would have to be the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

Nova from the ‘Renegades’ Trilogy by Marissa Meyer.

She’s probably one of the only anti hero type characters I can think of who I really enjoy reading about.

I would say Harry Potter but I want to have a different answer for each question so behind Harry Potter would be the ‘Keeper of Lost Cities’ Series by Shannon Messenger.

The elf world is expansive and so interesting. I absolutely adore this series.

The Tea Dragons from ‘The Tea Dragon Society’ by Katie O’Neill.

They are honestly the cutest things!

I want a Tea Dragon

I think the food from ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ by Kevin Kwan would be amazing!

From both the description in the book and what we see in the movie everything looks absolutely delicious!

Celaena Sardothian from the ‘Throne of Glass’ series by Sarah J. Maas.

She is legitimately a total badass and I really enjoy reading about her as a character. I genuinely find that she works hard to do things that people don’t expect from her and that is a really interesting quality to read about.

Lazlo Strange from the ‘Strange the Dreamer’ Duology by Laini Taylor.

He is honestly such a caring character and really shows his strength through atypical means.

I love my little harry potter music box that I got from my friend Kim. It is so cute and plays Hegwid’s Theme when you wind it.

The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker is definitely one of my favourite books that I’ve read this year. I am obsessed and I really want to reerad it, even though I only read it in October.

I tag everyone, this is such a fun Christmasy tag!

Fictional Christmas Squad Tag

I saw this tag over on Jenniely blog and I thought it was super festive and fun!

Pretty much you just name a fictional character that is that kind of person. I am going to use only characters that are in books that I’ve read this year.

Lara Jean from the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before triology. She would definitely bake everybody some Christmas Goodness

Alvar Vacker from the Keeper of Lost Cities series is definitely a scrooge

Charli GrantSave the Date – she loves a wedding and I’m willing to bet she’s the one decorating the tree on December first.

Charlie from Heartstopper Volume 2. He seems like a character who would go all out for Christmas.

Magnus Chase from the Gods of Asgard series. I feel like all the Einherjar chilling at Hotel Valhalla playing all the board games in front of a fire.

Bella Swan – Twilight – would definitely be someone to stay in her Pjs all day!

Hagrid! 100% he would do it!

I Tag everyone in this Festive Tag!

Book Bucket List Tag

Honestly it feels like I am making up from my lack of Tag posts throughout the year in October but here we are, hopefully this is the last for a while, but not making any promises!

I saw this over in Jessica C Reads blog, so make sure to check her out!

Both the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas and the Keeper of Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger are massive series in length and in the size of each individual book. If I can finish these both I will feel very accomplished.

Id have to say either Shannon Messenger or Rick Riordan

oh wow thats a super tough question. Maybe J.K. Rowling. I’d probably ask her how Harry Potter has changed her as a person?

I am more of a reader than a writer but what I would write would most likely be a fantasy or contemporary. So if I was to write/read something outside my comfort zone maybe realistic fiction.

The US hardcover box set of the Harry Potter series is on my absolute dream list!

I definitely collect books in general and I really want to start collecting book marks, I feel like I never have enough and am always looking for one.

One day I want to get the chance to go to a Barnes and Nobles! Honestly such a dream.

Hands down BookCon and Book Expo.

I love the vibes of these covers, very chill and somewhat mysterious.

I’d love to finish my current TBR (its crazy long) and find a bookish community that shares the same interest in similar books. I really wish I had more people that enjoy similar stories!

I tag everyone and anyone to do the Buck List Tag

Identity Crisis Book Tag

I was scrolling through WordPress reader, because who doesn’t, when I camp upon a tag. I’d seen this tag before and had even attempted it but I got distracted and forgot to finish it. So we are back, this time to actually complete the tag.

I saw it on Kristin Kraves Books blog and here we are, taking a second attempt at this tag. The creator of this tag is Loretta at the Laughing Listener, thanks for creating such a fun tag!

Red Queen

Did you forget about Kilorn? Well you shouldn’t have! He may not be the centre of attention but he has stuck by Mare’s side since day one and didn’t even hesitate to join the Scarlet Guard. Just like Kilorn, your loyalty and bravery are your most admirable qualities. Rise, Red as the dawn.

Shadowhunters

You’re Clary Fairchild & Cristina Rosales

Sure, sometimes you act without thinking, but your determined to do what you believe in and you’re often coming from the right place. Try to keep your faith in the world around you – your ability to find the beautiful in the ordinary is a gift.

Throne of Glass

Shockingly. you’re an overwhelmingly sarcastic bookworm. You try to look on the brighter side of things, but your snarky sense of humor hides depths of concern. You’re probably the most responsible of your friends, as they know they can always count on you.

The Hunger Games

Joannah Mason

Yes, you can be known to be feisty and sometimes you feel like life can be unfair. But you won’t let that get in the way of your happiness. You use your charm to your advantage and won’t take any nonsense. But when you finally let your barriers down your personality shines and so do others around you.

Harry Potter

Harry Potter

You’re daring fearless and fiercely independent. You don’t believe in rules because you like doing things your way. You don’t crave attention and you can only be yourself with your closest friends.

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Elain Archeron

The embodiment of beauty and grace, your gentle heart and soft words soothe the bitter hearts of those around you. Your kindness and courage are rarer than the strongest of high fae powers – never lose them to bitterness and despair.

The Raven Cycle

Blue Sargent

You are outspoken, and walk to the beat of your own drum. You’ve always been different and take pride in your individualistic nature. Although you try to maintain a rebellious streak, you are consistently told you are sensible. Remember, don’t kiss strange boys.

Twilight

Victoria

Yeah, no one better cross you. Mess with you and it’s a death sentence. You’re not one to play games and are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals – no matter how bloody it can get. But life doesn’t always have to be filled with hate! Just blood, lots of blood.

Folk of the Air

Taryn

People may think you are shy but you have your own secrets. You have your own desires and will go after them no matter what it takes.

The Lunar Chronicles

Jacin

Personal guard and pilot for head thurmatauge in the Lunar Army. He has an abrasive personality and can be quiet and surly. He will do anything to protect the ones he truly cares about.

I tag everyone!
