Book Humans Interviews: Evil Queen Books

Welcome to the Book Human Interviews! Every week I will be interviewing one person from our overarching book community: a book blogger, a booktuber, or, a bookstagrammer. The idea is to get to know people in each sector more and connect with each other. If you’d like to be interviewed, fill out this form and I will schedule you in!

Today, we are talking to Jackie, the booktuber behind Evil Queen Books! Follow along as we learn more about one of our fellow Book Humans…

Q1: What drew you to join the community you chose in the previous questions?

I started off as writing on my book blog (which I still use) and I wanted to share my thoughts on YouTube as well.
Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
Everyone is amazing. I find new channels everyday and everyone I meet is just so nice and welcoming!
Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
Gray by Pete Wentz. It is my favorite book of all time and is the reason I joined the book reviewing community in the first place.

Lastly, here are three videos that I love from their Youtube:

  1. SMALL BOOKTUBER TAG!
  2. SPOOK-A-THON 2019 TBR!
  3. MUSIC-A-THON DAY 3: CONCERT BOOK TAG!

Iconic Books of the Decade: 2010’s

Iconic Books of the Decade

Let’s start off by saying 10 years is a longgggg time and a lot can change in those ten years. In the 2010s, a lot definitely did change, especially in regards to books, even more so Young Adult novels. There were also more than a few markers of these changes, in the forms of the books themselves. This list is for those markers; these are the most iconic and noteworthy books of this decade, in my opinion….

Broke The Barrier (and made me feel so seen)

  • The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
  • Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson

Everlasting Hype (for good reason)

  • We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal
  • The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
  • A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab
  • Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  • Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  • Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
  • An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
  • Red Rising by Pierce Brown
  • The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Waited With Baited Breath (and gasped at that series end!)

  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

It’s Good AND Adapted!

  • A Discovery of Witches by Deborah E Harkness – adapted as a TV series on SundanceNow
  • To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – adapted as a film on Netflix
  • Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – adapted as a web-series by Piera Forde

Books That Touched Me

  • Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: it was so imaginative and just touched my creativity and made me feel like I was living in a different plane of existence. It was so beautiful and so artistic that it was otherworldly.
  • The Color Project by Sierra Abrams – a beautiful book that touches your heart and also ended up preparing me, of sorts, for dealing with some things later.
  • Now I’ll Tell You Everything by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor – the first book that ever made me cry. and then on top of that make me flat-out sob. I will never read it again because it was that good and that heart-wrenching and it dramatically changed me.

Now, all this being said, I am very much interested in hearing what books you do and/or do not agree with me on from the list above. I also would love to know what books would be on your ‘Iconic Books of the Decade: 2010s’ list! Let me know in the comments below. Thanks, have a great day/night, and tata for now!

Book Humans Interviews: Books and Bees

Welcome to the Book Human Interviews! Every week I will be interviewing one person from our overarching book community: a book blogger, a booktuber, or, a bookstagrammer. The idea is to get to know people in each sector more and connect with each other. If you’d like to be interviewed, fill out this form and I will schedule you in!

Today, we are talking to Catherine, the book blogger behind Books and Bees! Follow along as we learn more about one of our fellow Book Humans…

Q1: What drew you to join the community you chose in the previous questions?
I love reading and already followed a few book bloggers. In need of a hobby to bring me joy, I made a blog and accompanying social media!

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
I like that people often share more personal aspects of themselves. Even just sharing what you’re doing over the weekend is lovely and leads to lots of fun conversations where books and life are discussed.

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
I’d say Good Omens, since this was my go-to before the series came out. I think that though the book is written for adults, the humor and content is not particularly inappropriate for bookish children with parental guidance. It’s also a very enjoyable read for many people of different reading preferences!

Lastly, here are three posts that I love from their blog:

  1. Can you be the wrong audience for a book?
  2. Making Time for Reading
  3. Ending 2019: A Final TBR
