Book Tag | Netflix and Books

netflix


Hello, everyone! In honor of the release of the new Orange is the New Black season, I thought I’d take the opportunity to do a tag that combines two awesome things: TV and books! This tag was created by Christy and Lauren, and I was tagged by Jesse @ Books at Dawn. Thank you so much for the tag, Jesse. Everyone reading this should go check out his blog; he posts regularly and writes quality posts. 🙂

GENERAL RULES FOR THE TAG:
  • Choose a book or book series that best matches the prompt provided
  • Feel free to change the TV show if you’d like it to reflect YOUR preferences!
  • A blank set of the prompts is located at the very bottom in the scroll box
  • Feel free to use our header graphic with the usual credits
  • Link back to us and tag some friends to join in!

Vampire Diaries:

Your ship sank or didn’t happen

com

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas

*Maniacal laughter mixed with devastated sobbing* I don’t think this is a surprise. Everybody who knows me is aware that I am 200% Chaol and Celaena trash, and that will never, ever change. The two were perfect together until Celaena decided to become insufferable and arrogant, and got together with Rowboat Wifebeater. I’m still bitter, if you haven’t noticed.


 

Friends

Best cast of characters/friendships

A Gathering of Shadows Final

A Gathering of Shadows (A Darker Shade of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab

This is a fairly recent cast of characters I’ve become so invested in. I think V.E. Schwab has constructed these characters so perfectly; each of them are multi-faceted, layered, complex individuals who make some dubious decisions yet are ultimately decent human beings. I am astounded by how invested I became in Kell, Lila and Rhy in just two books- so much so that I don’t want to read the last book because I don’t want to let them go.


 

Orange is the New Black

Couldn’t stop reading

with malice

With Malice by Eileen Cook

This is another fairly recent read. The books that I genuinely can’t put down are usually thrillers and mysteries, just because I’m one of those people who go to sleep thinking about what might have happened. I get way too invested in the lives of fictional characters in mysteries. It’s not the healthiest thing in the world, but I’m not complaining because it’s so much fun to binge-read a mystery.


Gossip Girl

Guilty Pleasure

city of bones

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

I wouldn’t say Gossip Girl is a guilty pleasure. I love that series, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. It was one of the reasons I initially applied to NYU *blushes furiously* But these books are guilty pleasures, or at least the first three are. They don’t offer much of substance- they’re mostly angst and mindless entertainment, but damn me if they’re not the most addicting books in the world. I could not put them down, even though I was consistently giving them three stars. The second half of the series is better- I feel that the characters got more developed and the antagonist was more up my speed.


Doctor Who

Long series I love

bb

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

A series I read at a very defining moment in my childhood, when I had few friends, few consolations except thirteen books telling the tale of orphaned children. 😛


Breaking Bad

Favorite Villain

knife

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Mayor Prentiss is one of the most complex, frustratingly understandable, lethal and downright genius villains I have ever read. Much like Walter White, to be honest.

Comments

  1. Netflix and books is basically a match made in heaven. I absolutely love V. E. Schwab’s books and I am so fiercely protective of Kell, Lila, Rhy and Alucard. They must be protected at all times.

  2. Great idea for a tag! Sort of reminds me of the fandom book tag I did a while ago. I was wondering where Supernatural was the entire time until finally it was mentioned at the end haha.

  3. I totally seen Chaolaena coming! 😛
    I’m surprised Feylin didn’t make that spot either! I loved your answers. What are your thoughts on the new OITNB season?

    • I mean, I love Feylin and all but Chaolena beats them, hands down. 😛
      I believe I’m on E7 at the moment, but I think it’s alright. Personally, OitNB is a great series to binge-watch, but I don’t see where all the raving fits in. I LOATHE Piper, so I find myself dozing off whenever she shows up on screen. Judy King is also such a boring character. 🙁 And I miss Sophia Burset!
      Have you seen it already?

  4. Thanks for the tag! I admit I laughed out loud when I saw ‘Rowboat Wifebeater’ – Chaol/Celaena was my ship of choice too in ToG, though admittedly I really dislike Celaena and the series went downhill for me.

    I also LOVE V. E. Schwab and feel the same way with you about ADSOM and AGOS! Have you read her other works yet, like Vicious?

    • SAME. I don’t like who Celaena became in Queen of Shadows. I don’t think I’ll be continuing on with the series; I don’t have the money or the time. 🙁
      I HAVE read Vicious, though nothing else by her. Vicious was very, very good! It was my first exposure to anti-hero protagonists, and now those kind of books are some of my favorites, so it holds a very special place in my heart. I do like ADSOM better, though!

      • I completely agree! I actually feel like I’m a bit in too deep to let go of the series, so I think I’ll be skimming the rest of it… in the library, that is, because money. 😛

        I loved Vicious too! I actually think it was a faster read than ADSOM and liked it better… both series have a very special place in my heart, though. Will you be picking up This Savage Song or anything she has written under Victoria Schwab? 🙂

  5. I agree with you on Mayor Prentiss. He is such a well written character too. You want to love him and hate him. I still need to read Monsters of Men. Hopefully soon!
    I need to read more thrillers and mysteries. They are actually my favorite things to watch on tv, so I have no idea why I don’t read more of those type of books. I’m going to check out With Malice.
    Thanks for tagging me!

    • Monsters of Men will DESTROY YOU. In the BEST way possible. I cannot coherently express how much I love that book- it’s the best ending to a series I’ve ever read.

      I think thrillers work better on-screen in general, but there are some pretty great books. The Cormoran Strike series is obviously fantastic. With Malice was very good, so I hope you get around to reading it. 🙂 x

      • That’s good to hear about Monsters of Men. I actually didn’t like The Ask and the Answer that much, so I am hoping Monsters of Men is better. I loved The Knife of Never Letting Go so much though, so it was a huge disappointment when I didn’t think The Ask was that good.

  6. What a fun tag! I think my favorite villain would have to be Victor from Vicious, although I guess he would be considered an anti-hero… but is that the same thing as a villain?

    • I think anti-heroes are people who are ultimately good people with redeeming qualities, but make some morally ambiguous decisions to achieve what they want. Villains tend to be downright bad. Have you read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo? I have a feeling that if you enjoy anti-heroes (like Victor), you might love that book!
