Chris Pratt is the ultimate celebrity crush. He’s got everything: he’s hilarious, he’s attractive, and he has a beautiful family. I’ve loved him since I first watched Parks and Rec, and with his rising popularity, it was only a matter of time before a book tag was dedicated to him. When I saw it, I immediately jumped on it. So I obviously wasn’t tagged, but who even cares because Chris Pratt
1. guardians of the galaxy – your favorite character ensemble
I mean obviously. Between the Gryffindors, the Weasleys, the teachers, the Order, the golden trio, and even the Slytherins, this is a cast of characters I’ll never tire of. The more I think about it, read the books, watch the movies, the more I learn about the characters. They’re like a second family.
2. andy dwyer – a book or character you can’t help but love despite their flaws
Sybella is the best, but she is super flawed – closed off, angry, cold. But I love her so much, because underneath all that is a character so full of love that it has broken her. She will do anything for the people she loves, and she has. Her story is the most harrowing I think I’ve ever read, and she’s a character I will never forget.
3. anna faris – your otp
I mean, I have so many otps that I don’t know what to do with them all. But my newest otp of the year is Brinessa – Bri and Vanessa from Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler. So much adorable flirting. So much innuendo. So much push and pull. It is PAINFUL and WONDERFUL.
4. chris evans – your BroTP (fave friendship)
Kady and Byron were the beeeeest. It was awesome to see the heroes of the story being strong in a different way – in this case, it was a couple of hackers and computer geniuses instead of assassins or fighters. Plus I loved their instant messaging banter.
5. jurassic world – a badass character
Mackenzie! This book is too often overlooked but it has the most intriguing world-building, where the dead rest on shelves like a library, and every once in a while, they wake up and try to wander off. Mackenzie’s job is to make sure they don’t get too far and if that’s not the creepiest job in the world, I don’t know what is. So yeah, she’s pretty badass.
6. the lego movie – a book that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves
Poison is this absolutely delightful high fantasy about a potions maker on the run and an impending end-of-the-world scenario. It is hilarious, there is an awesome romance, and a PIG. How can you say no. How are there not more people raving over this book?
7. everwood – a book you read before it was popular
So I got an ARC of DoSaB really early – like really, really early through a giveaway and I read it. Sort of. I actually DNFd it about halfway through, and it took me like three weeks to get that far. I know this is very black sheepy of me but I did not like it. About six months later I gave it another shot and liked it a bit more. But I still haven’t read through with the rest of the series.
8. transformation – best character development
This book is soooo good, and seriously overlooked. But more to the point, the growth that Callie showed was huge and also unconventional. It’s unusual to see a character grow darker, but that’s what she does. She grows stronger and darker and I loved every page of it.
