I’m back with another great book tag but with a twist! I’ve posted my version of the ‘Netflix book tag’ along with the original ‘Netflix tag’ ~ courtesy ‘Rats’(that’s what I call him!)
1. Recently Watched: The last book you finished reading
She says: ‘A discovery of witches’ by Deborah Harkness. I picked it up very casually but it’s a great read TBH!
He says: ‘Alice in borderland.’ Its actually a japanese TV show and unlike any of the other things that I usually watch. I’m really hoping for a second season.
2. Top Picks: A book/books that have been recommended to you based on book you have previously read
She says: ‘Twilight‘ by Stephenie Meyer, ‘Night world’ by L.J. Smith. I’ve already read both of them as a teenager though! I do however want to expand on my love for the ‘supernatural’ and maybe give ‘The Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy’ a go!
He says: ‘High rise invasion’ and ‘archer’ but they really don’t seem my type, I don’t think I’ll watch them.
3. Popular on Netflix: Books that everyone knows about.
She says: All books from the ‘Harry Potter’ series by ‘J.K. Rowling, ‘The hunger games’ by Suzanne Collins. The list goes on, really and rightfully so, I’m in love with how these authors create a whole different world so realistically.
He says: Friends, Brooklyn 99, TBBT, Breaking bad. I’ve watched all of them.
4. Comedies: A funny book
She says: ‘The comedy of errors’ by William Shakespeare. Probably, Roald Dahl’s works. I’m not very into comedy actually.
He says: ‘Brooklyn 99‘, I really relate to the lead ‘Jake Peralta’ and as unnatural as they may seem, his reactions are usually how I mentally react to similar situations at first. (I’ve learned to control my outward reactions since then!)
5. Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king
She says: Is it weird if I say, ‘Bellatrix Lestrange’? Weirder if I might add that she is one of my favorites from the ‘Harry Potter’ series. I clearly have a flare for drama!
He says: ‘Gina’, ‘Sheldon‘, I mean he’s always complaining. I’m not really the drama kind (laughs nervously)
6. Animated: A book with cartoons on the cover
She says: ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ by Roald Dahl, ‘Matilda’, ‘The BFG’ – all of his works. I read most of them as a kid and absolutely fell in love with all of his books and how ridiculous yet fun his stories were.
He says: ‘Rick and Morty‘! Its weird, quirky and unique sometimes even non-sensical
7. Watch it again: A book/book series that you want to re-read
She says: ‘The best of me’ by Nicholas Sparks. He’s actually one of my favorite authors and I could reread any of his books, but this one had my heart from the time that I read it. I love how he manages to play around with love and tragedy in each of his titles.
He says: ‘Peaky blinders‘. I would enjoy it so much the second time around, now that I know to savor it. The show has everything- action, drama, comedy and even romance.
8. Documentaries: A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone
She says: ‘How to be a bawse’ by Lily Singh. I’ve never been much about the self-help section but Lily Singh’s personality and odes of wisdom have brought this nothing short of amazing title that needs to receive more attention from the masses. I have benefited a lot from her ideas in my personal life, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
He says: ‘Social Media’ it’s a reality that we need to face. Social media has become a daily, not if hourly addiction for all demographics and its better to learn more about it before its too late. (mysterious, right?)
