The Amsterdam Book Tag

Thanks so much to Sophie @ Blame It On Chocolate, or the girl with amazing book reviews and one of the coolest rating systems ever. Seriously, check her out!

This tag was created by Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff.

WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY CHEESE STORES IN ONE STREET? — A CHEESY READ:

I gotta say, although both of Instantmiso’s works have enough cheese in them, Where Tangents Meet has a bit more…didn’t stop it from being absolutely adorable (and being a bit of a deconstruction…no, a new take of the moody guy meets ditzy girl story).

CANAL PARADE — A BOOK THAT CELEBRATES THE LGBT-COMMUNITY:

Each of the Shadowhunter series celebrated the LGBT community in some way, particularly TMI (though if the rumors are true, The Wicked Powers may have the main couple be gay.) I’ve noticed more books I’m reading have LGBT characters, which I like.

ANNE FRANK HOUSE — A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY:

I don’t really cry during books. None of the books I’ve read lately have made me truly sad, Per se, although the new Webtoon My Boo has had a surprising amount of feels thus far.

MUSEUM SQUARE — AN ARTSY BOOK:

Okay, this is hard. Even though I’m a writer, I haven’t read many books that could be called artsy. But hey, let’s go with my favorite how to write book: On Writing, by Stephen King.

PIGEONS, PIGEONS EVERYWHERE — AN ANNOYING CHARACTER:

Gah, where do I begin? I guess my latest “annoying character” would be everybody but a select few (mainly Jeremy and Raymond) from The Silence of Murder:

RED WHITE BLUE — RECREATE THE DUTCH FLAG USING BOOKS:

Well. I tried. Sorry for the weird cut offs. I used The Dire King, On Writing, and Lady Midnight.

    1. Hehehe…😉 That’s another one I forgot to recommend. While I like Siren’s Lament a little more (it’s more up my alley) WTM actually gives the main guy a personality and the girl a reason for being so ditzy. I thought it was really well written in that regard. And instamiso’s art is ALWAYS amazing!

    1. No problem! You should totally read On Writing, especially if you’re a writer (or even if not, my dad hasn’t had time to finish it, but he started it and liked it) It’s an awesome memoir with some very good tips. He also includes the roots and beginnings of how he came up with some of his most famous works, like The Shining and especially Misery!
      Yes, it is a sign!

      1. Glad to hear! And yes I absolutely love Webtoons. Currently I’m reading Cheese in the Trap, Lumine, Just for Kicks, Hooky, I Love Yoo, #Blessed, My Giant Nerd Boyfriend, I Don’t Want This Kind of Hero, Space Boy, unOrdinary, As Per Usual, Super Secret, Big Jo, Let’s Play, Oh! Holy, Kind of Confidential, Girls Have a Blog, Miss Abbott and the Doctor and Supersonic Girl, though some of these are currently on hiatus. I also love ShootAround and Magical 12th Graders, but those are unfortunatley finished. Definitely going to give Where Tangents Meet a try when I have the time!

      2. Ooh, I also like Cheese in the Trap, Lumine, Hooky, I Love Yoo, MGNBF, IDWTKOH, Space Boy, UnOrdinary, As Per Usual, Miss Abbott and the Doctor, and ShootAround!
        Though some of my favorites have to be Dr. Frost (I have hope that season 3 will be translated) Bastard, and Annarasumanara.
        Let me know when you start WTM!

  1. Aaaww thanks for the shoutout, Kate! You’re awesome ❤
    WTM is so cheesy indeed but can't go wrong with so much adorableness hahaha (although ditzy girls do get a bit on my nerves sometimes)
    I've seen My Boo around a lot and it seems to finally be finished for I might give it a go. I've been reading some lovely webtoons lately but it's super hard to wait while they're not updated T_T
    Glad to see you doing this tag 🙂 Loved your answers!

    1. Well, how could I not put in a shoutout? You’re so awesome”
      WTM is very cheesy, but it is still too cute. I liked how it deconstructed stereotypes.
      My Boo is…bittersweet. I just did a review on it, if you’re curious. And which Webtoons have you been reading?

      1. Hahaha thank you ❤ You're super awesome yourself! ^_^
        Hmm I see. I might check it out one of these days. I'll go read your review in the meantime 🙂
        Oooh boy, tons, actually! Let's see, my current favorites are: Days of Hana, I Love Yoo, SubZero, Super Secret, Let's Play and Eggnoid. I'm also reading Unlovable Replacement, Lore Olympus (I'm still not too keen on this one), Split, Miss Abbott and the Doctor, Where Tangents Meet, A Budgie's Life, Siren's Lament, Saphie, Cheese in the Trap, Age Matters… Hmm, I'm not sure if I'm reading anything else ^^' But as you can see, I've had plenty to keep myself busy hahaha

      2. Cool, if you read it, I hope you enjoy it!
        I’m also reading Days of Hana, I Love Yoo, SubZero, Eggnoid, Split, Miss Abbott and the Doctor, WTM, A Budgie’s Life (so cute) Siren’s Lament, Saphie, CIIT, and I have started Age Matters.
        But yep, you have had plenty to keep yourself busy. Are you thinking of doing any reviews on them?

      3. Ah you too? Awesome!!
        I’m not sure yet… I haven’t really explored any webtoons in my blog before so it’d be a bit weird. But I’m always up for new things so why not? 🙂
        I always prefer to write about things that are finished, though. We’ll see 🙂
