  1. I like a good book tag post, it great to see what others are reading!

    1. Yeah it’s always fun because a lot of times you get names of books you otherwise wouldn’t have thought to read!

      1. Or didn’t even know existed… it pretty cool. How’s things?

        1. Yeah exactly!
          I’m good! You?

          1. Not bad. Tired after a long week!

  2. Thanks for the shoutout and I am so happy you enjoyed the tag! Btw Go Set A Watchman was a good seqeul and I do not know why so many hate it. The Book Thief is SUCH a good book and Me Before You made me cry as well 🙁 🙁 My older sister thinks Newt is cute too. lol Cursed Child was an interesting book. I didn’t like it as much as the originals which is a bummer but it was still pretty.

    1. You’re welcome!!
      Yeah I read some reviews online for Go Set A Watchman and people were so mean about it but I really liked it so I don’t know. I guess some people are just too critical. Yeah Newt is super cute! I didn’t like Cursed Child as much either but it was still very good!

  3. Some good books there Pooj – have you tried and Haruki Murakami? He’s brilliant.

    1. Thanks! No not yet but I want to check out his work because someone else recommended him too and he seems very good!

  4. An interesting list.

    1. Thank you!

  5. I haven’t watched The Book Thief yet but I read the book recently and loved it so it might be time to check out the adaptation.

    1. Yeah you should! Usually I don’t like the movies compared to the books but I think this one is worth watching and I really enjoyed it!

  6. I read Animal Farm for the first time this year! So good!

    1. Yeah it’s an amazing book that’s just so raw!

  7. Couldn’t agree more about “Catcher in the Rye.”
    I finally was able read it and so let down.

    1. Yeah I thought so too! I’d been wanting to read it for so long that I had very high expectations for it but when I finally read it I was so disappointed.

  8. I felt the same way about Animal Farm and Catcher in the Rye, and about Newt Scamander 😉 Great tag!

    1. Thank you!! I’m glad there are other people out there who were disappointed by The Catcher In The Rye because it seems like people love it and I was like wait is there something wrong with me?

      1. I know right, it’s a classic but I just felt like the main charecter was so hypocritical and ANNOYING, and the whole thing just kind of seemed to be trying so hard. But I guess it kind of opened the way for other better YA books, at least.

        1. Yeah he was super whiny and annoying and if you don’t mind reading a book where you hate the main character than you’ll like it but if I read a book I want a main character I can relate to. Yeah he was trying so hard to be different that it kind of turns him into a lame cliché and it’s like he’s complaining about everyone being a phony when he’s the biggest phony himself!

          1. Exactly! I was trying to read A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, but the narrator was similarly unlikable, just super irresponsible and arrogant. It’s definitely a turn off in books for me.

            1. Yeah me too. I hate hating the main character and it just annoys me. It’s like why even bother reading about someone you so strongly dislike.

              1. I think interesting villians can be cool to read about, but when it comes to the narrator, I feel like they at least should be on my side.

                1. Yeah exactly! Like I love a interesting villain but I need the narrator to be the protagonist.

                  1. I was trying to think of an exception, but I really don’t think there are any for me at least.

                    1. Yeah me neither. Maybe someday I’ll change my mind but right now I can’t think of any.

  9. I cried so much watching Me Before You that I cannot bring myself to read the book. It was so heartbreaking!!

    1. I cried so much during the book I can’t bring myself to watch the movie 😭💔

      1. Ohhhh we have the opposite problem – I saw movie cannot read the book and you read the book cannot see the movie ((need kleenex!))

        1. Hahaha yeah we have the same problem but in an opposite way! Urghhh that book/movie is just too emotional! 😭😭

  10. I love Newt. He’s such a cutie!
    The Book Thief was amazing, both movie and book.
    Deception Point is the only Dan Brown book I haven’t read, aside from Origin of course. I’m looking forward to reading both this year. He’s one of my favorite authors.

    1. Yes he is!!
      Yeah I love how well they made the movie! It was very good!
      Yeah me too! I want to read both by the end of this year! Dan Brown is definitely an amazing writer.

      1. I love the Fantastic Beasts movie! It was done really well! I’m excited for the rest of them!
        Yes, Dan Brown is an exceptional writer. I love all the effort he puts into researching for his novels. You can definitely tell and it pays off.

        1. Yeah they did it so well even people who aren’t huge Harry Potter fans loved it!
          He is so accurate about stuff it’s insane! He really puts so much effort into his books and you can just tell when you read it.

  11. I was very disappointed with Go Tell A Watchman. Almost wished it hadn’t been published. However, was very impressed to think that the receiving editor had seen enough in it originally to encourage the writer to go on to write Mockingbird

    1. Sorry I meant Go Set .. as I am sure you realise

      1. Yeah I got that!

    2. I actually enjoyed it but I’ve heard a lot of people have a similar opinion to yours. Fans are pretty divided on whether they like it or not.
