BOOK TAG #19 | Rocky Horror Picture Show Book Tag

Rocky Horror Picture Show Book Tag
Rocky Horror Picture Show Book Tag

Hey, y’all! I hope you’re having a great day/night and getting through the first full week of 2021. Today, I’m doing another book tag ’cause I need to ease myself back into blogging, and tags are easy. This one is the Rocky Horror Picture Show book tag brought to us by Rach over at Anxious Nachos. That link leads y’all to Rach’s original book tag post, in case you want to do the tag yourself! She actually tagged me for this back in…uh…October? So here we are, three months later, lmao. I swear I wasn’t ignoring it, I was just in a blog hiatus. But let’s get into it now!

Science fiction, double feature: a book that has been made into a TV show or film

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng

I haven’t watched the series on Hulu or read the book, but it sounds interesting! I’ll have to pick it up sometime soon and watch the adaptation.

Damnit, Janet: a YA romance

Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann
Let’s Talk About Love – Claire Kann

While it’s not my favorite book (I think I rated it 3 stars?), I thought Let’s Talk About Love was cute! It was the first YA romance (the first romance ever, even?) that I read that had an asexual protagonist.

Over at the Frankenstein Place: your favorite gothic fiction

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Mexican Gothic – Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I don’t read much gothic fiction — in fact, Mexican Gotchic might be the only gothic book I’ve read outside of the Poe I read for high school. And honestly, I think I need to read more because, while I didn’t finish Mexican Gothic (I ran out of time on my library hold ūüė≠), I absolutely loved the vibes of it all.

Time Warp: your prettiest book cover

Six of Crows: Collector's Edition
Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo (Collector’s Edition)

Aaron gifted me the UK collector’s edition of Six of Crows for Christmas one year, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. This picture really doesn’t do it justice. I love the read on black and how shiny it is. Definitely one of my prettiest books, along with the collector’s edition of Crooked Kingdom.

Sweet Transvestite: an iconic queer book

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
Girls of Paper and Fire – Natasha Ngan

I read this one last year and fell in love. Such a good book! The world-building is super interesting, and I love the characters, especially Wren. Can’t wait for the third one to come out this year!

I Can Make You a Man: a book set in a medical setting/about medicine/with a doctor or nurse main character

Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present by Harriet A. Washington
Medical Apartheid – Harriet A. Washington

This is a non-fiction book about the history of medical abuse, neglect, and racism against the Black community in the United States, from colonial times to more recently. While it was hard to read at parts, it was a phenomenal book that I definitely recommend.

Hot Patootie: a book set in the 1970s or 1980s

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth
The Miseducation of Cameron Post – Emily M. Danforth

This prompt was a bit challenging: I don’t know many books set in the ’70s or ’80s. I eventually found The Miseducation of Cameron Post; I haven’t read it, but I’ve heard others liked it. I may read it in the future, when my owned TBR isn’t so high…

Toucha Toucha Told Me: a book where a character loses their innocence

The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, from left to right: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay.
The Hunger Games trilogy – Suzanne Collins

It was hard for me to think of a book for this prompt, too, but once I did, it seemed like a “duh” kind of moment. Prim in the Hunger Games trilogy seems like a character that loses her innocence, but doesn’t lose hope. I could be wrong, it’s been a minute since I read the series, but that was the impression I remember.

Eddie: a book where one of your favorite character dies

Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan
Girls of Storm and Shadow – Natasha Ngan

I included GOPAF already, so it’s only right that I include its sequel. No spoilers, but let’s just say I do not forgive Miss Ngan for what she did. ūüė§

Rose Tint My World: a book that makes you happy

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee
Not Your Sidekick – C.B. Lee

I read this book twice already, and I absolutely love it. It’s just a cute and fun superhero book that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Ant the romance? Adorable! I definitely recommend it if you want some (not Marvel) superhero media.

Don’t Dream It, Be It: a book by a trans, non-binary, or gender diverse author

Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee
Dragon Pearl – Yoon Ha Lee

I haven’t read Dragon Pearl yet, but! It’s definitely one that I want to get to, especially since it’s from a trans man. I’ve been wanting to get more into sci-fi, especially middle grade sci-fi, so this book seems perfect for that, too.

Wile and Untamed Thing: a book that makes your heart race

Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray
Before the Devil Breaks You – Libba Bray

Out of the four Diviners books, I think Before the Devil Breaks You is the one that had me on the edge of my seat the most. I thought it was the best out of the series, partly because the stakes seemed to be the most personal. And oof, that last quarter of the book? It almost gave me a heart attack. Definitely recommend the series!

I’m Going Home: a book with the found family trope

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet – Becky Chambers

Yet another book I haven’t read, but I own it, so…half points? My friend Makenzie recommends it big time, and literally all I know about it is that it’s one big, queer found family book. Which, I mean…what more do you need?

Superheroes: a book with one of your favorite villains or monsters

And I Darken by Kiersten White
And I Darken – Kiersten White

So this may be cheating a little bit because Lada could be considered a grey character, not an outright villain, depending on the perspective. But! I absolutely love Lada’s development throughout the first two books of the trilogy, and I cannot wait to read the final book to see how it all ends.

And that’s the Rocky Horror Picture Show book tag! Like I said in the beginning of the post, feel free to do this tag if you’re interested. Below will be a list of the prompts, and link back to Rach’s original post if you want her to see it.

See y’all next time!

BOOK TAG #18 | Non-Binary Book Tag

Non-Binary Book Tag
Non-Binary Book Tag

Hi, everyone! Today, I’m super excited to give y’all this book tag focusing on non-binary books and authors! It’s the Non-Binary Book Tag, created by Raviv over at Crescent Moon Reads. Here’s their video, if anyone’s interested. I meant to actually post this last year, but ya know. Hiatus and all, lmao. But anyway~

Name a book that feature an enby character.

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller
Mask of Shadows – Linsey Miller


Honestly, I love this book and its sequel, Ruin of Stars. They feature a genderfluid protagonist, Sal, who enters a tournament to become a member of the Queen’s Left Hand (the queen’s personal guard, basically). I definitely recommend it! If you interested, lemme know and I’ll shoot you the trigger/content warnings!

Name a book coming out or has come out in 2020 that features an enby character.

Phoenix Extravagant by Yoon Ha Lee
Phoenix Extravagant – Yoon Ha Lee


Listen, I can’t say no to dragons, automaton or living. Add in a non-binary main character, and you’ve completely hooked me. Phoenix Extravagant has been on my radar for a few months before it came out, and I’ve been meaning to get my hands on it…but alas.

Name an author who is enby! Mention their book! (if they are publicly out ONLY)

Meet Cute Diary by Emery Lee
Meet Cute Diary – Emery Lee


Yes, hi, hello, if you aren’t following Emery on Twitter, you should fix that real fast! E is a pretty rad person, and e also has a book coming out in May this year: Meet Cute Diary! There’s fake dating, enemies to lovers, trans joy. What’s not to love? I definitely recommend checking Emery out on Twitter and adding eir book to your TBR!

Shoutout 3 BookTubers who are enby! If you don’t know 3, try to fix that and name as many as you can. (again, ONLY if they are publicly out!)

So I’m going to include both BookTubers and bloggers! First up is Vic, a genderfluid teen that blogs over at Santana Reads. You can also find them over on Twitter. Next up is Raviv, the non-binary transmasc creator of this tag. Like I said earlier, Raviv is a BookTuber over at Crescent Moon Reads. They also have a Twitter! We also have Anniek/Niek, a non-binary book blogger over at Anniek’s Library. You can find them on Twitter, too! Finally, Brody is a non-binary BookTuber over at Et tu, Brody?, and you can find them on Twitter, as well! (Also hello, if you didn’t know, I’m genderqueer as fuck ‚ú®)

And there y’all have it, the Non-Binary Book Tag! I don’t like tagging others (heck, most of the tags I do I’m not tagged in to begin with, lol), so if you’re interested, then consider yourself tagged. ūüėä

BOOK TAG #17 | Mid-Year Freak Out Tag

Hi, everyone! Welcome back to another book tag. I actually did this same one last year (here’s the link!), but I figured I would makea habit of doing it every year ’cause my answers would change! Without further ado, let’s get into it! ūüôā

Best book you’ve read so far in 2019

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Ya know, for the best book I read in 2019, I haven’t read the sequel yet (and I read it back in January). But seriously, I loved A Darker Shade of Magic. The characters, magic system, plot, narration… Literally loved everything about it. 10/10.

Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019

Honor Bound by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I was about to say that I haven’t read any sequels this year, but look! I read one! It’s the only one I read, but I really enjoyed it. In this rare case, I thought the sequel was better than the first book.

New release you haven’t read but want to

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Look at the gorgeous cover, and tell me you don’t feel the urge to read all 800+ pages right this second. There’s queens, dragons, and queer ladies. What’s not to love?

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Belle Revolte by Linsey Miller

I have two because I can’t just choose between two of my auto-buy authors. So we have Ninth House, which sounds mysterious and dark and cool. Then there’s Belle Revolte, a queer fantasy that already owns my heart.

(So apparently I’m a Dumb Queer who doesn’t understand release dates: Belle Revolte isn’t published until 2020, but I’m still counting it. Bite me.)

Biggest disappointment

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Here I was, thinking that I was going to read this cool sci-fi classic, and what do I get? Slow, repetitive, misogynistic nonsense! Ugh! (If you want to read my full [semi-rant] review, here it is, y’all). Oh well, you don’t love them all.

Biggest surprise

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I swap one sci-fi nocvel for another! Seriously, I was not expecting to like Honor Among Thieves as much as I did. I mean, going into it, I just hoped I wouldn’t hate it. But I ended up absolutely loving it, and all the characters are my kids. Sorry, I don’t make the rules. (Here are my mini-reviews for Honor Among Thieves and its sequel, if you’re interested!)

Favorite new author (debut or new to you)

This is the year that I hope to read all of V.E. Schwab’s work. I’ve only read two, but I’m so down to read more! Just. Wow. I love everything about her writing.

Newest fictional crush

I don’t really do fictional crushes, but I would protect Beatriz from the Honors series with my whole life.

Newest favorite character

I don’t know about my bestes favorite character ever, but Rook from An Enchantment of Ravens was a fun character to read about. I enjoyed his interactions with others, as well as his personality and quirks.

Book that made you cry

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

As far as I remember, there hasn’t been a book this year that has made me cry yet. However, a book that made me sad was We Are Okay. It was such a powerful and moving read, and I really felt for the protagonist.

Book that made you happy

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab! I dunno, it just made me excited to read a middle grade novel again. It was super fun, and I can’t wait for the sequel!

Most beautiful book you bought (or received) so far this year

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Look at this cover! I can’t wait to start Girls of Paper and Fire, and even if I wasn’t interested/knew the story, I’d buy it because of the cover. Just saying.

What books do you need to read by the end of this year?

Here’s a short list:

  • The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
  • The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
  • Check, Please! Vol. 1 by Ngozi Ukazu
  • I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver
  • A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
  • Now I Rise by Kiersten White
  • Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
  • all of the new releases this year, let’s be honest

And there is 2019’s Mid-Year Freak Out tag! I hope you all enjoyed seeing the different books/reactions I’ve had so far this year. Let me know if you’ve read any of these, or maybe what your fav and less fav books of this year are so far!

Write caption…

Hey there, everyone! I recently created a Patreon that has more bookish stuff. If you like what I do on this here blog, maybe you could think about supporting me with a few dollars in exchange for even more bookish content!

You don’t have to worry about any content from here being behind a paywall, either. Absolutely everything on this blog is staying here, including reviews, book tags, weekly memes, discussions. Everything. The content on Patreon could be seen as extra perks and a way of saying thanks for supporting me!

Depending on the tier you choose, being a patron allows you to have:

  • early access to reviews (24 hours)
  • the ability to collectively choose 2 books for the following month’s TBR
  • exclusive posts on bookish tips and tricks
  • character analyses
  • and more!

Regardless if you become a patron or not, I really appreciate the support you have all given me throughout my blogging journey. ‚̧ԳŹ

BOOK TAG #15 | Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

Hi, everyone! I’m here with another book tag, and since the New Year just came along, I figured the Ringing in the New Year book tag would be quite festive. So, without further ado, let’s get to the rules and the tag!



Best books are probably And¬†I¬†Darken by Kiersten White or Not¬†Your¬†Sidekick by C.B. Lee. Since I don’t read many series, I’ll just sit that one out.


Definitely C.B. Lee and I’m pretty excited for whatever Tomi Adeyemi writes, too.

3. Most anticipated book turned movie?

I don’t watch much of anything , so I can’t really say. But I enjoyed Love,¬†Simon this year.


Weird question, no thanks.


6. How many books do you hope to read in 2019?

60! So at least five books a month… we’ll see how this goes.

7. Will you participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge (or any others?)

Yes! I’m also thinking of doing Beat the Backlist, too.


Blog: start a new feature that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now; try to keep up the comment for comment challenge (without aofficially signing up, whoops); update blog pages regularly; and post at least two times a week.

Reading: you’ll find these out when I post my Top 5 Wednesday this week!

Personal: be more mindful of what I eat; continue to set alarms for meals; practice yoga at least twice a week; meal prep regularly.

And that’s a wrap! I hope you all enjoyed this tag. Since I feel weird tagging others, feel free to be considered tagged if yo’re intersted in doing this.

Until next time~



BOOK TAG #14 | Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Hi, everyone! Today, I have another tag for you: the Bookish Naught or Nice tag. It was originally created by Jenn over at Jenniely, and I was tagged by Nox from Nox Reads; check both of their blogs out if you have the chance!

Before we begin, the rules:

  • link back to the person who tagged you
  • link back to Jenn, the creator of the tag
  • check/mark the ones that you have done (Note: the ones checked that I have done them will be underlined!)
  • at the end, tag 10 more people (or as many as you can!)

On to the tag!

1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it

Nope! I’ve received at least three of them, and I always reviewed them…even if the reviews are a little (a lot) late.

2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley

I have a NetGalley account, but I haven’t used it at all. So, uh, no.

3. Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)

So I did the inverse: I would do the review on my blog, but never connect it back to my Goodreads “review” like I said I would. (Hi, Not Your Sidekick)

4. Folded down the page of a book

Yup! Many a time. Not recently, though. Instead, I close it without a bookmark and hope for the best. Or I might use a notecard. I like to live boldly.

5. Accidentally spilled on a book

What can I say, I’m clumsy.

6. DNF a book this year

Even worse, I DNF’d more than one. *gasp*

7. Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it

To be fair, I now want to read them, but I bought the Grisha Verse trilogy because of the gorgeous covers, at first.

8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else

I read to ignore my problems, what did you expect?

9. Skim read a book

Do you mean 1984 by George Orwell?

10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal

Nah, I was a few books off, but not “completely.”

11. Borrowed a book and not returned it

Almost. My APUSH teacher gave me a book to read my freshman year of high school, and I didn’t give it back until my junior year.

12. Broke a book buying ban

I don’t have a need for a ban because I have no money.

13. Started a review, left it for ages, and then forgot what it was about

No, I usually get my reviews out pretty quickly. Actually finishing the book on the other hand… Well.

14. Wrote in a book

Yes, I love annotating my books! It’s something I started recently, and I think it’s fun.

15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

I got my Goodreads account back in 2013 or 2014, and while I try to get them all, there are a lot of books I didn’t add.

16. Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

I may have them for way too long, but I eventually give them back

17. Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book

Nah, never. The idea that no one can borrow my books ever always seemed goofy, and I don’t get it.

18. Broke the spine of someone else’s book


19. Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged

Ugh, I hate dust jackets; they’re a pain in the ass. But I never took them off.

20. Sat on a book

Yeah, a few times accidentally.

There you have it! Another tag. I know it says to tag at least 10 people, but that freaks me out. So! If you want to do this, consider yourself tagged!

Until next time~



BLOGOWEEN POST #1 & BOOK TAG #12 | Halloween Creatures 2.0 Book Tag

Halloween Creatures 2.0.png

Hi, everyone! This is going to be my very first Blogoween post!! Cool, right? And what better way to start it off than with a book tag? This book tag is brought to you by Anthony, one of the hosts for Blogoween! Here’s his post so you can check out his answers, too! So, without further ado, let’s get into the rules, and then the tag itself!


  • Answer all prompts.
  • Answer honestly.
  • Tag 1-13 people.
  • Link back to this post.
  • Remember to credit the creator. (Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward)
  • Have fun!

A Magical Character or Book.

Nina Zenik from¬†Six of Crows¬†is very magical… I mean, the ability to slow down hearts, choke someone out, make someone pass out, without even touching them? Count me in.

The Perfect Book to Read at Night.

Scary Stories

I loved reading this books as a kid, and I even tried a few of the urban legend tricks (I remember trying the one where you do certain things that allow you to see the ghost of a relative). Really creepy artwork, which is a plus.

BOOK TAG #10 | 90s Movie Book Tag

90s Movie Book Tag.png

Hi, everyone! Today’s Monday, so I have another book tag for you! This week’s tag is the 90s Movie Book Tag, which was created by Kayleigh over at A Book Lovers Playlist!

1. She’s All That: name a book couple that are an odd pairing but they still fit perfectly

I dunno if this counts, but Jesper and Wylan? They’re kind of the whole “opposites attract” because Wylan seems like such a homebody, but Jesper always wants to be out doings something. But they’re so cute together, and I love them.

Continue reading “BOOK TAG #10 | 90s Movie Book Tag”

BOOK TAG #10 | You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

You're Not Good Enough Book Tag.png

Hi, everyone! For today, there’s a different sort of book tag than others that I’ve done before. This one is called the “You’re Not Good Enough” book tag. I initially found this on Beatrice’s blog, DreamlandBookBlog (you folks should go over and follow them; I did right before this post, and they have a quality blog). For this tag, I right down 30 random book characters, and choose between two that I picked based on a prompt. So. 30 characters, 15 prompts. Let’s see how this goes…

1. You only have one more spot on your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?

Sam Lloyd (The Diviners) or Harkat Mulds (The Saga of Darren Shan)

While I might have picked Harkat because I feel like he’d be a good speller, he can’t exactly talk…so Sam it is. I don’t think we would get very far in the spelling bee.

Continue reading “BOOK TAG #10 | You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag”

BOOK TAG #9 | Hamilton Book Tag

Hamilton Book Tag.png

Hello, folks, and welcome back to another book tag! Today’s tag is called the Hamilton Book Tag, taking prompts from everyone’s (some people’s?) favorite musical. The original creator is Maureen Keevy, and you can see her video in the prior link.

Also, there’s a spoiler warning for the 14th prompt (Stay Alive: a character you wish was still alive); it pertains to¬†characters in¬†Harry Potter, particularly in¬†Order of the Phoenix¬†and¬†The Deathly Hallows. Please skip over it if you don’t want to be spoiled.

Alright, without further ado, let’s get into it!

1. The Room Where It Happens: a book world you would put yourself in

I would most likely die within the first hour I plop in, but the GrishaVerse world??? Yes, please. I wanna dick around with Kaz and the crew. Granted, like I said before, I would probably die, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Continue reading “BOOK TAG #9 | Hamilton Book Tag”

BOOK TAG #8 | Fall Book Tag

The Fall Book Tag

Hi, everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute since I’ve last posted (getting ready to go back to college was a struggle, haha). So, I wanted to start out nice and easy with a book tag! I understand that it isn’t quite fall yet, but I always made fall synonymous with September, so here we are.

Here are the rules for this tag:

  • Link back to¬†Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!!
  • Use the graphics ‚Äď if you want¬†ūüôā
  • Have fun!

Without further ado, let’s begin!

1. Crisp Fall Air: a book that felt fresh and new

The Diviners

I’m going to have to pick¬†The Diviners¬†by Libba Bray! Even though I’m only five or six hours into the audiobook, I’ve been loving it. I suppose the aspect of kids having magical powers isn’t entirely new, but the setting (1920s New York) has a great feel to it, and I think the narration is phenomenal. Definitely something that’s new. Continue reading “BOOK TAG #8 | Fall Book Tag”
