Hello again honeybees! I’m here with a tag, since these are always so much fun and they help me keep some new content up on the blog without too much fuss, since I am pretty sick right now.
This tag was originally created as by Whitney @ A Darker Shade of Whitney on YouTube and then converted to a blog tag by Heather @ the Frozen Book Blog. I saw this tag on Bree and Tree @ Words About Words ‘s page a while ago, and I recommend checking out their blog!
Recently Watched: The Last Book You Finished Reading
The last book I finished was All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson. It was phenomenal and such an emotional read. I’ve only read a few memoirs but they’ve all been beautiful, and I am so glad I get to add this to that list.
Top Picks: Book(s) that have been recommended to you based on a book you have previously read
I read and loved Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, so naturally, A Court of Thorns and Roses was recommended to me. If you’ve been here awhile, you know how that one turned out. If you’re curious about my experience with SJM’s other series, you can read some of my thoughts here.
Recently Added: The last book you bought
I don’t buy books very often (I’m a poor student) so it’s been months since I’ve bought a book. However, I just recently pre-ordered Cemetery Boys by Aidan Thomas and I can’t wait to get it in my hands this September!
Popular on Netflix: Books that everyone knows about (Two you’ve read + Two you have no interest in)
Ooh here comes the controversial opinions! Two that I’ve read are The Mortal Instruments series and All The Bright Places. I don’t read new releases often (because I can’t buy them) so I’m not caught up on the new hyped up books.
Two books that I have no interest in reading are The Cruel Prince and City of Brass. The Cruel Prince sounds down right awful and City of Brass just doesn’t appeal to me. And it’s so big! I’m not a fan of big books because I feel like I don’t make any progress with them and then I give up. Maybe this one is worth it? Let me know if you think I should give this one a shot, and why. I’m open to changing my opinions.
Comedies: A funny book
I don’t read funny books, this one is hard. The first book that comes to mind with funny/sarcastic banter is Simon vs. but this book is by no means a funny book. It’s very emotional and hard hitting but Simon is a cutie with good lines.
Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king
I can’t think of any blatantly dramatic characters, but the character that came to mind was Jace Wayland. That led me to Clary who is so annoying during the books and definitely blew things out of proportion a few times. So I’m sticking with Clary, even if she wasn’t the most dramatic character ever.
Animated: A book with cartoons on the cover
I am just confusion. I feel like these questions are so simple and I can’t think of anything 🙈 Here’s the cover of My Life As A Potato, who’s title really speaks to me these days.
Watch It Again: A book/series you want to reread
I swear, I want to reread all of my faves, all of the time. But I find that I’ve been fangirling about Ari and Dante a lot more than usual and it makes me want to reread it! My yearly reread time is in the summer but maybe I have to read it twice this year, just because.
Documentaries: A nonfiction book you’d recommend to everyone
I haven’t read too much nonfiction (a big goal of mine this year is to change that, but I haven’t read anything noteworthy yet) and I think this is a particularly fickle genre to give a recommendation to everyone. A nonfiction book that I really enjoyed was Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed The World by Mackenzie Lee. I read the ebook and it was very informative and lovely, unlike the author.
Action and Adventure: An Action Packed Book
Listen, Lobizona by Romina Garber is a trip! It’s been such a wild ride, with something happening in every chapter that I am NEVER bored. I’m having a hard time putting this down, the story progression and every little thing happening is so exciting and keeps me on the edge of my seat!
New Releases: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read
Will I stop screaming about Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas? Not until I read it! My favorite holiday (Dia de los Muertos) and LGBTQ+ romance? I’M ALREADY THERE! I’m also pumped to read The Only Good Indians, which came out yesterday (7/14) and has gotten rave reviews by my fellow Indigenous bloggers.

Should I consider reading City of Brass? What’s the last book you bought? What are you currently watching on Netflix? Let me know in the comments!
I’m watching Queer Eye and Nailed It. Reality TV is my jam.
