[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!

 

Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft

Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling MenWhy Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men by Lundy Bancroft

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It took me forever to read this book. Not because it was terrible, quite the opposite. I’ve started to read this several times, then would read something else and lose my place. This book made me think too much of past romantic partners, and that was a bit disturbing to me.

It really made me think about my previous romantic encounters, not in the sense that they were violent, but they had mildly abusive tendencies. Abuse is a word that has changed in definition since I read this book. Abuse has a wide range of symptoms, not just physical and verbal abuse. Manipulation can also be viewed as abuse, which is not something I ever considered.

Everyone needs to read this book. Not just women. Everyone. There is something to be learned here and if abuse is to be stopped everyone needs to recognize it for what it is and to be able to do something about it.
