Netflix and Books Tag!

Hey everyone! So I've been in a pretty bad book slump, and the reason for that is Netflix. It's amazing, but it is a huge problem! I mean, I have watched about four seasons of Grey's Anatomy since June. If any of you are interested, I'm in the middle of season 12 right now. The Netflix and Books Tag was created by Erica from Novel Ink and Lauren from Bookmark Lit! I actually saw this originally at Kay's blog, It's A Book Life, so make sure to check out hers as well!

Here are the rules:
  • 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
*Spoiler alert for P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han* Trust me, I love Peter Kavinsky just as much as any other. But John Ambrose McClaren is the absolute best, and if it were me, I would have picked differently than Lara. However, I think Lara made the right choice for her. 
Gossip Girl - Hate That You Love or Guilty Pleasure
I don't necessarily have "guilty pleasures" but The White Rabbit Chronicles becomes pretty close! The books are just pure fun, and don't require much thinking!
Grey's Anatomy - All The Feels
I had to go with Fruits Basket for this matchup! Grey's Anatomy makes me cry, smile, laugh, and makes me feel anxious all at the same time, and Fruits Basket did the same back when I was reading it. If you want to know, Lexie and Mark are my favorite couple so far!

The OC - Series That Should Have Ended Earlier
The Selection series should have just ended with the initial three books. While I enjoyed The Heir and The Crown, they didn't add anything to the series for me. To be honest, I found the last two books to be predictable and low-energy.
Favorite Book Boyfriend
Percy Jackson is the ultimate book boyfriend Not only was he my first book boyfriend, but he remains my favorite to this day. Percy hilarious and courageous, he's also humble as well, which is hard to imagine after he's saved the world a couple times here and there.
The Flash - Couldn't Stop Reading
I could not have put down Illuminae even if I wanted to! Illuminae gripped me from the very first page, and I had to read the rest right away. The pages flew by so quickly, and the mixed media was a big factor of my great reading experience!
Breaking Bad - Favorite Villain
How could I not choose Queen Levana for this? She's not pure evil, and that is my favorite character trait of a villain. Villain's need depth, and Queen Levana definitely has! Reading Fairest actually made me understand and sympathize with her, as crazy as that sounds! 

Modern Family - Best Family or Parents
I was initially going to pick Lara Jean and her family for this answer, but because I already featured the series above, I decided to go with my runner-up, The Unexpected Everything! Family is a huge part of The Unexpected Everything, and it was done marvelously. The relationship between Andy and her dad had such great growth and progressed very naturally throughout the book, which I really appreciated! 

And of course anyone else who wants to do this tag!!

Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!  


  1. Thanks for tagging me, Genni! I couldn't stop reading Illuminae, too!

    1. Of course Lauren! Illuminae is so great. <3 Gemina is my most anticipated release of this year!

  2. I totally agree with you about Peter and John. I thought for sure she was going to choose John. Percy Jackson, *sigh*, he was my first book boyfriend and has a special place in my heart. Illuminae was such a great book. I would have zoomed through it if I hadn't been reading it the week I had final exams. Although I wasn't a fan of The Unexpected Everything, the relationship between Andy and her dad was a good one.

    1. I wouldn't mind a spin off just for John! But he might be in the third and final book in the trilogy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :) Percy Jackson himself and the series have a special place in my heart as well. The familial aspect of the Unexpected Everything was actually my favorite part of the book, except for the scavenger hunt and the dogs, of course. :D


    Well, now that I've got that off my chest. . .

    These look like some good books! I've heard a lot about The Unexpected Everything. It sounds good, just long. Awesome post!

    1. I'm seriously considering restarting the Heoroes of Olympus series just for some more Percy!!

      Good and long are both words I would to describe The Unexpected Everything. :D Thanks so much Ashley!

  4. Love the sound of this tag! Every once in a while I fall down the rabbit hole that is Netfix and get sucked into a show. I'm pretty new to the Percy Jackson series (read the first two books), but am really looking forward to the rest. Great answers!

    1. You should do it Alicia! I just finished Grey's Anatomy, so now I'm in a reading slump but for TV. :D I hope you love the rest! The Titan's Curse is my second favorite of the series behind The Last Olympian. Thanks! :)

  5. Fun tag! I agree about Illuminae- it was hard to put that one down! Love the prompts too- so many good shows. :)

    1. You should definitely do the tag Greg! I know how much you love TV. :)

  6. Thanks so much for tagging me! My answers are already up on my blog. :-)

    1. You're welcome! And thanks for getting back so quickly! :D

  7. Percy is so wonderful! Thanks for tagging us!

    1. He's definitely my favorite book boyfriend! You're welcome! :) I actually felt a by weird tagging you because I'm a newish subscriber, but I figured why not. :D
