I was actually sent the funniest goodreads message from a friend on the site (thanks Heather G.) asking me to do this post! I've seen it floating around booktube and was really happy getting asked if I could do it! I absolutely love doing tags and seeing tag videos. I think it's one of the best ways to get book recommendation and add to my never ending TBR pile.
