[Netflix] Book Tag

Time for another book tag, this time it’s coming to us from Book Loving Nut, and it’s the Netflix Book Tag, which I thought was quite appropriate for this blog! So without further ado here are the prompts:

Recently Watched: The book you most recently read:

I actually just recently finished a series of writing books from Tyler Wagner, his Author’s Unite series. The last book in that series was Next Steps for Authors.

Top Picks: A book recommended to you based on another book you’ve read:

Well, if we go with the previous answer, Tyler Wagner references his book called Conference Crushing heavily in his writing series. However I will most likely not be reading that one. I do have more Jodi Picoult books recommended to me by my co-workers that I will be reading!

Recently Added: The book you most recently bought:

I could go on again about Tyler Wagner, but since I’ve already covered that I’ll go with the next most recent purchase and that was V. C. Andrews’ Landry series from a local thrift store.

Popular on Netflix: One book that you have and one book that you haven’t read that everyone has been talking about:

Well, my co-workers are still talking about Jodi Picoult, a book on the death penalty that they would like me to read, does that count? I have read The Shack which has been made into a movie was a big deal around my work place for awhile.

Comedies: A funny book:

Anything by Sir Terry Pratchett, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Dramas: A character that is a total drama king or queen:

No specific character, but any female character that suffers from “all the males want me”, total drama queen.

Cartoons: a book with cartoons on the cover:

Again, anything by Sir Terry Pratchett. I love his Discworld series.

Watch again: a book or series you want to read again:

I have reread The Unicorn Chronicles several times already, plan to reread The Oz Series by L. Frank Baum again, and want to reread the Second Sons Trilogy.

Documentaries: a non-fiction book that you would recommend to everyone:

Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft

Action & Adventure: an action packed book:

James Patterson’s books certainly are action packed. I also like Tana French’s books are good for this too.

New releases: A new release or soon-to-be-released book that you’re excited about:

I do not follow new releases that well. I’m not even sure I know of any coming out as I don’t really have a series I follow closely.

 

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this book tag and I tag everyone who would like to do it themselves! And as always…

 

Keep reading little book worms!

 

House Rules by Jodi Picoult

House RulesHouse Rules by Jodi Picoult

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having never read Jodi Picoult, but having seen ‘Mys Sister’s Keeper’ in theater as my only basis, and then informed that I need to read that book… I read this book. It was going around my work place and offered to me to read.

My co-worker that started this book through the work place reads quite a bit of Jodi Picoult and the co-worker I got the book from afterwards does too, and told me that Picoult writes about controversial topics, and from watching the movie and reading this book I have to agree.

It’s not the center of the plot, but whether or not to vaccinate your child does come in discussion. I also like how the book is written from each person’s point of view and changes throughout the story. Jacob has Aperger’s and really loves criminal forensics, this of course gets him into trouble, leading to a court trial, and lots of information on how Jacob’s diagnosis is important to the case.

I was mad at the ending(?), because it ended, but it wasn’t really an ending. But, having said that, books that elicit strong emotions from me, are often the best kinds of books.
