The Book Snob Tag

1.) Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?

Nooooo, oh my god no. See, I have friends, and those friends don’t read books and just want to maybe go see cute romance-y movies, which sometimes happen to be books first. I’ve done it, and I have no shame in it guys.

Examples: A Simple Favor, Alita: Battle Angel, Everything, Everything, After

2.) Format Snob: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical, ebooks, or audiobooks?

Hello, physical! Physical forever and always. What am I going to do during a zombie apocalypse?! Have a non-working iPad to read books? No thanks.

3.) Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

I am currently right now, so that’s a very easy answer for me.

Here’s the thing: If a person doesn’t read, that doesn’t mean it won’t work out. Honestly, I don’t mind that he doesn’t read…. He listens. He will gladly listen to me be pissed off over a book, sad over a book. Ladies and Gents, as long as you’re partner LISTENS to you, you’re good.

4.) Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

GOOD-BYE HORROR! And gee, while you’re leaving my life for good, take all your movies with you!

5.) Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read form one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

Ehhhhhhhhh….

MAN, This is tough! I don’t know! I guess I would have to say contemporary? I guess? It’s a pretty large genre so yeah, contemporary!

6.) Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

Romance for sure! Do you guys even understand how much shit I get for liking Fifty Shades of Grey?

I feel like Romance books get such a bad wrap because honestly, in this day in age, people feel like every book should be giving them something. A lesson, a deeper meaning… Romance doesn’t usually deliver on that. It’s intended purpose I believe is to be fun, to make you feel romantic, to make you FEEL something. Fifty Shades of Grey never promised anyone to take anything away from it, just enjoy yourself reading it!

Geez… I might do a whole rant post on this because I just can’t!

7.) Snobbery Recipitent: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?

Image result for bookish gifs

YES! My parents, my brother, my boyfriend, my best friend have all said some b*llsh*t over me reading. They aren’t readers and think I am ‘stuck in a fantasy world’. I don’t take it to heart, I like reading and they don’t, so it’s fine. Really I’m the only one in my family who reads, and the only other person that did was my great-grandfather, and he passed away even before I was born. My grandmother has always told me I’m just like him, with my head always stuck in a book.

Movies I’ve Watched Yet Haven’t Read The Book

Goodmorning and welcome to another post of me throwing myself under the bus!

But no seriously, I wanted to do this post because honestly, I think we have all done this. We have all seen a movie, then realized we didn’t know it was a book and were surprised, OR maybe you knew it was a book, but just didn’t really care and saw the movie anyways. Either way, we have all done it. If you haven’t, then hats off to you lol.

I thought my list was going to be very small but turns out…. it’s not. SOOO, here is a list of movies I have watched, but haven’t gotten around to reading the book.


(1) After by Anna Todd

Yes, I watched this and OH MY GOD I loved it! Thank god this came out on Netflix or else I probably never would have found interest to watch it and want to read the series.

(2) The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

This is probably one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. I’ve seen it a few times actually and every time, an actual tear forms in my eyes guys. I have never had an interest in picking up the book though, and I probably never will.

(3) Bird Box by Josh Malerman

I have seen this movie once and that is probably the max amount of times I would watch it. Was it a good movie? Yes. Would I ever read the book? Probably not.

(4) Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Yes, this is a tv show okay? Whatever, it’s on the list. I was obsessed with season one, started season two and ended up hating it. Now it’s just a drawn out show and it’s all unnecessary drama in my opinion.

(5) Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I saw this and loved it! I 100% have the book on my tbr and plan on reading it soon!

(6) The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

I love the movie, but don’t really have an interest in picking this one up. Has anyone even ever read it?

(7) Alita: Battle Angel by Yukito Kishiro

I saw this on a first date, loved the movie. Hated the date. Haha!

Upcoming Book To Movie Adaptations In 2020 | Blogmas/Bookmas 2019

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 2 (Netflix) Expected Date: February 12, 2020

Although I didn’t really care for the book series, I loved the first movie. I feel like this is just going to be one of those books that are just better as a movie than they were in book form. I’m excited for this one to come out for sure!

Fatherhood (Based on the book Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love): April 3, 2020

I have never read this book either, as I’m 1) not into memoirs and 2) not into crying, but I do love Kevin Hart, and I see he’s really taking his acting career a little more seriously, so I will definitely be checking this one out.

Peter Rabbit 2: April 3, 2020

I don’t remember if I saw the first one, I think I may have and it was cute. These Peter Rabbit books were some of my favorites growing up as a kid, and I remember I always had to be the first one in line at the library with them in my hand, or else they would probably be checked out already.

Artemis Fowl (Disney): August 9, 2020

I have never read this book (is it a series????), but I do love Disney, so I may not read the book, but I might check out the movie.

Little Fires Everywhere: 2020

I have not read this book, but I have heard some pretty amazing things about it, so I am ready for this to be a movie to pressure me into reading the book.

China Rich Girlfriend: 2020 (Ehh?)

I have not read this series, and I feel like it is right up my alley and I NEED TO READ IT. The first book is on my tbr, so I would definitely like to pick that up at some point in 2020. This is a maybe that it will come out next year, but I really hope it does.

Book Review | Supernova (Renegades #3) by Marissa Meyer

Hello everyone! I am so excited to share this review with you guys today because I simply just fell in love with this series last year, it just captured my entire heart. This series as a whole for me was a 5/5, total win, and I’m officially calling it one of my favorite series of all time, next to Caraval of course. It was an honor being able to read these books and review them for you guys, so let’s just get right to the review.


Supernova (Renegades, #3)

Title: Supernova

Author: Marissa Meyer

Pages: 552

Format: Hardcover

Genre: Fantasy

Audience: YA

Publication Date: November 5, 2019

All’s fair in love and anarchy…

The epic conclusion to Marissa Meyer’s thrilling Renegades Trilogy finds Nova and Adrian struggling to keep their secret identities concealed while the battle rages on between their alter egos, their allies, and their greatest fears come to life. Secrets, lies, and betrayals are revealed as anarchy once again threatens to reclaim Gatlon City.

  • Adrian & Max Relationship – These two brothers had an amazing relationship throughout the series. I was hoping Meyer wouldn’t cause these two to get into any conflicts because honestly, it seemed like the one thing that kept Adrian a little grounded and was definitely a comforting relationship for him to have, despite all of his other relationships throughout this novel. Adrian goes through the most stress throughout this series, and Max was always there to help guide him, and I just noticed in this book that Meyer made the relationship even STRONGER. Loved this sibling dynamic, and I wish we could see more of that.
  • The Writing – As the first two books, the writing was absolutely incredible. It just makes me want to read literally everything else she has ever written because… it’s just a masterpiece. This book was just over 550 pages long, and she wrote this book so well, I got so angry when I had to divert my attention away from reading it.
  • The Cover – THAT COVER! It’s absolutely stunning! All the covers are really amazing, but this one is just ugh! Gorgeous.
  • THAT ENDING – Not giving anything away, but the ending will mess you up.
  • Not Predictable At All – I happened to not even be able to think up an ending for this book. Throughout reading the series, I couldn’t think of a way of how this would all end, and honestly it just made the ending even better. I did try to predict one thing, and even though I was partially right, Meyer expanding on that thought even more and twisted it into something I wouldn’t have really have been able to think of. I suspected nothing throughout the whole book, and I love when I’m just surprised at every turn in a book.
  • Nova Stayed True To Herself – I loved that Nova did not change just over a boy. This was big for me, I wanted Nova to follow through as her being a villain instead of just becoming a hero all because Adrian was. Nova definitely followed through with being a villain, and that was what I was so happy about. She didn’t just switch over to the hero side all because the cute boy happened to be on the hero side.
  • Narcissa – Narcissa was in this book and I love Narcissa! Her power is so amazing. Being able to jump through mirrors? Sign me up for that superpower! Supernova just made me realize how helpful her power can actually be, and honestly, Narcissa is just a total bad ass.
  • Everything Wrapped Up Lovely – I thought the ending to this trilogy was perfect and made me so happy. I’m happy with the way this ended, and there’s really nothing I thought was missing. It wasn’t rushed either, which is an added bonus.
  • Explanation Of How Everyone Received Their Powers – I thought this was the only part I couldn’t really understand. It didn’t make sense to me, and it made things confusing for a little while. I get why Meyer wrote that as an explanation, it really does cover a lot, but… it wasn’t the best way to explain it. It also just wasn’t a very good way to wrap up the question of how people got their powers in the first place.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

I would 100% recommend this series to well.. anyone! I am not big into fantasy, science fiction, those kind of books, but this book was a definite exception. This series as a whole was amazing, and this book just really was the perfect ending. This was definitely a series where the next book you read just keeps getting better than the last. I can’t wait to read the Lunar Chronicles soon.
