This Book (like the Movie) Started It All
Favorite Debut Book From an Author
A Diamond in the Rough
Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But they Turned Out to Be a Total Gem
Ooh, this is a tough one because there have been a lot, I think. Maybe Ronan Lynch from The Raven Boys. I think I have a better answer, but I don’t want to use the same book twice, so Ronan is my final answer.
A Book That Makes You Sleepy or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention
The Little Friend by Donna Tartt. I tried to read it probably a dozen times over more than 10 years, then I tried the audiobook, and I finally DNF’d it and I’m unhauling it.
Under the Sea
A Book With a Water/Ocean Setting
Drowning Mermaids by Nadia Scrieva. I think this counts, because mermaids.
Beauty and the Books
Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover
Matilda! I related way too much to her when I read this as a child, and I’ve always loved her. She might be part of the reason I love books so much, now that I think about it.
The Thief and the Princess
Name Book with an Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance or a Book You Didn’t Expect to Love So Much)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I read Emily’s Wuthering Heights and hated it, then I wasn’t wowed by Pride & Prejudice, so I assumed I wouldn’t like Jane Eyre. I was so wrong! It’s one of my favorite classics, now.
The Real Life Princess
Name a Book that is Based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read
I think I actually have a few on my TBR, even totally removing biographies from my options. So, I’m going with one of the more recent additions to my TBR: The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict.
The Princess that Saved Her Country
Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know
I had to really think about this one, and I’m still not sure if I would actually call her “the” fiercest, but Rose Hathaway from the Vampire Academy books is definitely high on the list.
The Princess With The Coolest And Most Diverse Crew
Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (like Tiana’s group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general
I’m going with Six of Crows, because I haven’t found many books that are diverse in multiple ways while also being well written. (And I’ll also use pretty much any excuse to talk about this book because I love it and Leigh Bardugo’s writing in general.)
Let Your Longggggg Hair Down
Name the Longest Book You’ve Ever Read
Coming in at a whopping 1396 pages (of regret) is Stephen King’s It. This book took forever to read and I really didn’t like it.
I Determine My Own Fate
A Book Where There is No Love Story/Interest or Isn’t Needed
I had to think about this one, too. I read A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness about six months ago, and I still feel a bit devastated. It was sooo good, and I can’t believe it took me so long to read it.
A Book in a Winter/Cold Setting
The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. It’s set in Vermont during January, and is nice and creepy.
How Far I’ll Go
A Character That Goes on a Journey
Uh…I’ve read a lot of books with characters going on journeys, I think. Ok, this is super cliche, but I’m going with The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein.
This was super fun, and I’m going to try to start doing more tags on here! (I always mean to, but then I forget, and don’t remember for ages and then feel really awkward about it, especially if I was tagged by someone and didn’t do it right away )
I’m going to tag: Books & Hot Tea / Salmah’s Bookshelf / Dani @ Perspective of a Writer / Bookmark Your Thoughts / Jackie @ Too Much of a Book Nerd / and YOU! If you find this tag here on my blog and want to do it, consider yourself tagged 🙂
