The Guilty Reader Tag!

Hello again! And welcome to the first tag of 2021! I feel like I haven’t seen any interesting book tags lately, but luckily I saw that Kat @ Life and Other Disasters posted this (originally by Chami @ Read Like Wildfire) and I thought, “Hey, I can do this… Why not?” (That’s pretty much my logic with all tags). So here we are!

-puts on reading glasses- So, this tag is pretty straightforward. We just have to answer a couple of questions regarding typical reader habits that make us feel guilty, apparently.

Let’s go!

Ready Player Two, by Ernest Cline || A review by pj

If you didn’t know, Ready Player One is one of my favorite books of all time, and I’ve recommended it to a few friends… only two of them read it, but all of them watched the movie and… they all thought it was ok. And that’s fine, you know? I recognize that it’s not the best book out there and that it has its flaws.

So, RPO came out in 2011, then the movie came out in 2018 and since money makes the world go round, a sequel came out in November of 2020.

Now, what does a major RPO fan has to say about this awaited(?) sequel?

All the series I watched the books I read || Oct – Dec 2020 Edition

Hello everyone! My name is pj, and here in reviewerpj we’re still sort of living in the past. Proof of this is that I’m still doing wrap up posts telling you about the series I watched and the books I read in the last 3 months of 2020 (movies will be coming up in the next post).

But I promise you this is the last thing 2020 related that you’ll hear from me.

This is going to be kind of long… so let’s get started!

Sorry I’m late, I didn’t want to come, by Jessica Pan || A review by pj

Welcome! My name is pj, also known as reviewer pj, and this is my first book review in almost a year. Last year I didn’t read enough review-worthy books, but watched a lot of review-worthy series.

This time we’re reviewing a self help book! It’s been years since I’ve read anything that could be considered self help (like 10 or 11 years maybe?) or non-fiction and not because I have anything against them, in fact, I should probably read more of that genre, but if you know the first thing about me is that I like my books as further away from reality as possible.

A couple months ago I found myself in ye ol’ Goodreads looking for self help books for a friend (yes, really) and I stumbled across this one. The phrase “An introvert’s year of saying yes” (or “An introvert’s year of living dangerously“) spoke to me so I added it to the list and several months later, here we are.

The End of the Year Booktag – 2020 Edition

We’ve made it to the end of the year, people! And I swear that the flow of time this year has been a weird one, and not just because of the obvious. First we thought January would never end, then March came and we all know what happened, then it was November all of a sudden and when a friend told me that she was starting something in December I was shocked because I thought December was a long way from now but it was literally next week.

And now we’re here. Four days away from the new year. Maybe a little late, but let’s do this.

Thank you to Kat @ Life and Other Disasters because her blog is where I saw this tag!

All the books I’ve read and series I’ve watched this year || Part 2 June – Sept

We talked about all the movies I watched this year (until September) here and here.

We talked about all the books I read and the series I watched (until May) here. And now it’s time for part 2 of the books, series and anime.

And might I just add… I went a little bit out of control with the series… It’s been a rough couple of months and fiction is not only my escape, but it’s also my friend, and without it, my mental health would be far worse than it already is. So anyways, thanks to those fictional stories that stayed by my side. This one’s for you.

Julie and the Phantoms || A Netflix Series Review, by pj

It’s been 2 months, people, and in that time, I traveled (but I was extremely careful and got tested before and after), finally quit the most horrifying job I’ve ever had, while keeping my slightly less horrifying other job, and my Canada plans got pushed back for 2 months because visa procedures SUCK at the moment.

I also thought a lot about making this review even though it’s been several months since it came out, but, oh heck it. Here it goes.

Last year I was reading…

Hello again!

In my attempt to try to be more present here on the blog, I found this really cool booktag over at Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books and a) I loved it and b) it felt like the perfect idea for these moments when you want to write something, but you need it to be short and sweet.

Meme credits go to Maria @ ReadingMaria. ✌️

5 potential 5 stars on my TBR

Hello! I’m back again with one of those ideas that I’ve had saved for a very long time.

That title is pretty self-explanatory. Five books that we have on the lookout that we know that we’re going to love, yet for some strange reason we still haven’t picked them up. Why? Well, unfortunately for you, that’s not the question that we’re going to answer today, but once I figure out the psychology behind why sometimes we deny ourselves the pleasure of doing things we really wanna do despite having the time for it, I’ll let you know. Now let’s talk about some books.
