The Queer Eye Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

Queer Eye Book Tag

I was tagged by Jolien @ The Fictional Reader for the Queer Eye book tag months ago *oops* and I always meant to do the tag because I LOOOOVE Queer Eye but then things got in the way. However, now things are no longer in the way AND Queer Eye season 3 released this month so naturally I binged the entire season and got all excited about all things Fab Five again. So there’s no better time to do this fun tag.

Also, if you haven’t checked out Queer Eye yet, please do. It’s so much more than a make-over show, but talks about many important things like self-love, identity, dealing with racism and homophobia, religion and so many other big issues. These 5 guys are amazing and each episode feels so pure and wholesome. Forget Netflix and chill, watch Queer Eye and cry. Happy tears, that is, because your soul will be cleansed.

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Tag Thursday (hi, it’s been a while!).

I wasn’t actually tagged for this one, but it looked fun and I love doing these kind of end-of-the-year wrapups so I thought, why not? This tag was created by A BookTube Book, so go check out her entry!

Also, you’ll be pleased to know that I tried very hard (and kind of halfway succeeded) to keep the Red Winter fangirling to a minimum and give other nice books a chance to shine too. So let’s dive right in!

Hi guys! Since we are (almost) at the middle of the year, I thought it would be fun to take a step back and look at what 2017 has been like so far and also to take a look at what’s still to come with the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag (2017 version)! This tag is created by ReadLikeWildfire and Ely Jayne

At this moment I have read 38  books of my total goal of 75  books to be read this year. So looks like I’m right on track! Let’s get started!

OMG This Song Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Tag Thursday!

This tag is a little different, as it focuses on both music AND books. I was thinking about putting it in my Something Different Sunday feature since the music focus is so prominent, but then again, I’m also still talking books and it’s a tag, so in the end I decided to do this here.

As you may know from reading my blog, I LOVE music. Music means the world to me. And, as you may also find out from this tag, my musical tastes are pretty much… all over the place. My playlist features so many completely different genres it’s a little crazy, but that’s also the way I love it and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

So first of all, thank you to Lauren at Wonderless Reviews for tagging me in this post. It’s always so fun to talk music with you! Also, this tag was originally created by Kate @ Katesbookdate and you can see her original video here!

Let’s get into the tag!

Anything But Books Tag {Tag Thursday}

Anything But Books Tag

Hi guys and welcome to a new Tag Thursday!

Today let’s talk about… well… anything BUT books (as the title of this tag already cleverly suggests). As much as I love talking about books (and boy, I love talking about books), there also is so much more out there I love and I would jump at the opportunity to talk about some of that as well!

So naturally, when I saw this tag done recently by Lauren at Wonderless Reviews and by Marie at Drizzle & Hurricane Books, I knew I just had to give it a go myself. This tag was originally created by Katie @ ReaderRot, you can check out her original video here.

Yuri On Ice Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

Yuri On Ice Book Tag

Hi guys, and welcome to this very special Tag Thursday! Why is this one so special, you may ask?

Well, it’s the first time I actually made my own ORGINAL BOOK TAG! Woop, woop! As you may or may not know, I have recently fallen in love (some may call it obsessed) with a little anime called Yuri!!! On Ice. Now, I never would have guessed I would become addicted to an anime about ice figure skaters, but here I am! I saw this show mentioned on Twitter regularly and got intrigued so I checked out the first few episodes and became hooked.

It’s about Katsuki Yuri, a Japanese figure skater who lost badly in his last Grand Prix. He’s suffering from crippling self-doubt and anxiety and is thinking about retiring until a video of him skating the routine of his idol, Victor Nikiforov, goes viral and none other than Victor himself shows up to coach him. This show is just so beautiful and funny and heartwarming. Yuri is such a relatable main character and the evolution of his relationship with Victor (an actual canon LGBTQIA+ relationship) is a joy to watch. I adored the 12 episodes and am keeping my fingers crossed for a second season!

And in the meantime, why not combine two things I love and do a little Yuri On Ice Book Tag?

Here we go!
