I haven’t done a tag in a loooong time, but since I just listened to Hamilton for the first time and became instantly undone by this damn musical, I decided I should absolutely do the associated book tag. No one tagged me in this but who cares.
1. The Room Where It Happens
A book you would put yourself in
I know the super easy answer is Harry Potter, but honestly I’d love to live in Terrasen once all the wars and shit are over.
2. The Schuyler Sisters
An underrated female character
Night Bird from The Seven Realms series is a damn Demonai warrior, the baddest of bad ass warriors. On top of that she has the strength of will to defy the other Demonais when their prejudices put everyone in danger. And then she has to do the unimaginable at the end of the series. Night Bird for president.
3. My Shot
A character who goes after what they want no matter what
Lila is very much a damn the consequences type of person. A single chapter from her POV shows you she’s the kind of character who fights for what she wants and when she sees her opportunity for adventure, she seizes it.
4. Stay Alive
A character you wish was still alive.
The most heartbreaking end to a relationship
I mean, I could just spam you with more Clexa pictures but I wont do that.
I won’t say anything specific but if you remember the ending to this book, then just know that THAT is the number one thing that will psychologically fuck me up, okay.
6. You’ll Be Back
The sassiest villain
“When no one understands, that’s usually a good sign you’re wrong.” Victor Vale, king of sass.
7. The Reynolds Pamphlet
A twist you didn’t see coming
It wasn’t a huge plot twist or anything, but the nature of something became more clear later on in the book and I definitely didn’t expect it.
A series you marathoned
I did read a book here or there in between each installment, but I basically marathoned these. I actually just watched the movie again (I love it and I don’t care what you say) and now I want to reread the series. (I always want to reread this series.)
Favorite book with multiple POVs
This is the mother of multi-POV books. I mean, damn near every page is written from a different perspective and it’s genius.
10. Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story
A book you feel will be remembered throughout history
I honestly couldn’t tell you if this is the best fantasy series ever or even if it’s worth the hype (I’m only halfway through the first book – and I like it a lot!) but I think that between the books and the television show, the story has had an undeniable impact on America’s culture.
A relationship you were pulling for from the very start
I mean, obviously the series/author wanted me to pull for them, but even through all the fuckery, and all the Adrian crap, I still shipped Rose and Dimitri. They mean so much to me.
12. Ten Duel Commandments
Favorite fight scene
That scene with d’Albret!!!!!
13. Say No to This
Guilty pleasure read
This. I just reread it last week and I shamelessly ship the endgame couple no matter how much I definitely shouldn’t. Any paranormal romance, honestly, especially adult ones. I’m not ashamed or anything, but I do know how others view this types of books. Shrugs.
14. What Comes Next
A series you wish had more books
I desperately want an 11th Georgia book where we can finally SEE her with the right boy! I recently reread the last few in this series and the ship feels are entirely too real for the nature of these books. But I feel them. And I’m still reeling from the loss of Louise Rennison – she’s one of my favorite YA authors and honestly everything about her books give me life.
15. Right Hand Man
As if I could go a whole tag post without mentioning Taylor, Raffy, Santangelo, and Griggs. Get real.
16. What’d I Miss
A book series you were late to reading
I came to these SUPER late and honestly the only one I liked was Isla. HATED Lola and Anna was just okay.
If you love Hamilton and for some reason you haven’t done this, consider yourself tagged!
