Netflix and Books
I have been stealing tags lately--I think because the TTT topics haven't really grabbed me, but I want some fun format to work within. I saw this one on the Novel Ink blog awhile back, and thought it looked like a good time. I don't watch a ton of TV, so I didn't get all of the references as they were listed. However, their directions said it was okay to substitute, so I did a lot of that. There are a few left that I actually don't know, but now my favorite shows are all represented.
Sprout by Dale Peck.
This one is hard to talk about without major spoilers, but I loved this book and hated the way my ship sank.
Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
I adored these books as a child, but find the casual racism disturbing as an adult. Yes, I get that it's a product of the times. Doesn't mean I have to like it.
Unwind dystology by Neal Shusterman.
Is five books "long"? There are some much longer mystery series that I love too, but Shusterman's dystopian world is fascinating and the adventure is non-stop.
