2022 Mid Year Book Tag

What is one to do when they run out of steam on reviews? Ah, a tag! Michaela recommended this one to me and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. I feel like the beginning of this year is already so far away. Links to videos I couldn’t take, the creators, and the questions are all below the video.

I ran out of cards halfway through, so here are all the other reviews/videos I mentioned:

– Neon Gods Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWSL8…

– Betwixt the Books Electric Idol Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMibj…

– APRC Supplemental Video including Unthinkable by Jamie Raskin and The British are Coming by Rick Atkinson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TewrB…

The JFK Book Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Josh from Literary Gladiators to do this tag in this video: https://youtu.be/_IbEKS3WQs4 This tag was originally created by Kari from Very Literary Kari, in this video: https://youtu.be/xEXZByQulIc. I did not tag anyone because I don’t know anyone other than Josh who would be interested in this Presidential history tag. If you want to go for it, consider yourself invited!

Trying the Try a Chapter Tag (Young Adult Fantasy Edition)

I honestly thought I wouldn’t have content for today, and then Michaela suggested trying the try a chapter tag. I picked 6 books I really need to get reading, and try the first chapter from each one. I actually had a lot of fun with it, and I hope that you’ll let me know if I end up ranking them correctly!

Autumn Reading Tag | Betwixt the Books

LOOK. MICHAELA AND I MADE A VIDEO TOGETHER! We were tagged by the lovely Amanda Center to do this tag, literally at the moment when Michaela and I were searching for something to do as our first #bibliomansion video. Clearly, Amanda is tuned in to our thoughts. Check out this video for some great horror recommendations as well as a sneak peek into some upcoming Betwixt the Books and Bibliomancy for Beginners plans!

Ruler of Books Tag

This week’s Betwixt content comes in the form of tags! This is my version of the Ruler of Books Tag, originally created by Ariel Bissett, and Michaela’s is coming later today. Once again, apologies for being super sick during filming, and I’m not quite on the mend yet anyways, but! That doesn’t change a thing about my devotion. 😛

Intimidating TBR Tag

Hey guys! It’s that time again, when Michaela and I do some tags! We’ve been talking a lot recently about TBRs–and how bad we are at them. BUT, they are important and we have very long ones. This is my version of this tag, and Michaela’s will be out soon as well!

Video: The Booktube Newbie Tag!

Remember when I promised that Michaela from The Pied Piper Calls (and head Bibliomancer) would be doing booktube videos with me? HERE IS PROOF. We finally got around to making our first round of videos, which are both tags to get us into the groove. You can check out our foray into the Bookish Beginnings Tag on Michaela’s blog, and then scroll down to watch the Booktube Newbie Tag entry here.

We apologize for the audio quality! We attempted to go with a certain mic for this video and it went all kinds of wonky, but we’ll have this fixed next time around.
