Since we’re all stuck in quarantine due to Reasons™, I thought it would be fun to try this quarantine-themed book tag. This tag was created by Princess of Paperback, but I found it on The Naughty Librarian’s channel. I urge you to check out their answers after you finish reading my post!
Laying in Bed: A book you could/have read in a day
I read this novella the first time I read The Lunar Chronicles and I read it in one sitting. It was really interesting learning Levana’s backstory.
Snacking: A guilty pleasure book
I’m at a point in my life where I don’t really believe in guilty pleasures. I’m an adult— I’ll like what I like, damn what anyone else thinks. This series is the closest I have, as it’s fairly trashy B-movie horror. I totally get the criticisms, but I love this series anyway.
Netflix: A series you want to start
I actually did a Top 5 Tuesday post about this recently, but this time I’m picking a series I didn’t put on my list. Lately I’ve been in the mood for F/F YA fantasy, so I figure now’s the time to give this series a shot.
Deep Clean: A book that’s been on your TBR for ages
In my defense, it’s very thick and dense and intimidating. I’m sure I’ll love it. I just have to work up the nerve to read it.
Animal Crossing: A book you recently bought because of hype
I should’ve listened to myself on this Book Blogger Hop post, but I let FOMO get to me. I actually DNF’d this book, but forgot to include it on my April wrap-up. You’ll hear more of my thoughts on this month’s wrap-up, but I basically didn’t like it for all the reasons I knew I wouldn’t. I played myself, but at least I was able to return it to the store.
Productivity: A book you learned from or that had an impact on you
This book was assigned reading in one of the creative writing classes I took in college. It really taught me a lot about the concept of objective truth vs. story truth. Despite being a memoir about O’Brien’s time as a soldier in the Vietnam War, I learned more about writing than anything else.
Facetime: A book you were gifted
Do ARCs count as gifts? I mean, I know we get them in exchange for a review but still. People don’t usually gift me books because I buy so many for myself. So… I say this counts. I’m so excited to get into it. It’s one of my most anticipated books of the year.
Self-Care: One thing you’ve done recently to look after yourself
My family and I have been having so many game nights lately. It’s really brought us closer and helped us all get through this quarantine feeling not so alone.
Bonus: A book coming out soon
The Hunger Games prequel comes out a week from tomorrow. I’m nervous, but excited.
