A Book with Characters You Hate:
Haaaa, I was stumped on this one for a bit, but then I remembered Rose and Dmitri from Vampire Academy. I’ll never let go of my hatred for them ♥
A Book with a Gentleman:
When I think of the word “gentleman”, I’ll always think about “Golden Boy”, aka Cade from Faking It by Cora Carmack. I mean there are a lot of awesome guys out there, and I could probably think of 10 others to name here, but Cade is just… the perfect gentleman. Seriously.
A Character That is Graceful, Kind and Defiant:
You know, I’m going to actually go with Lia from The Remnant Chronicles. I started out the series not caring too much for her, but in the second book, she’s amazing. She is all three of those things: graceful, kind, and defiant. She inspires people to follow her, she stands up against injustice when she sees it happen, and she will not let people use her as a political tool. I’m liking her more and more as time goes on.
A Character That Always Has Someone Looking Out for Them:
Hmm, I’m going to go with Made You Up by Francesca Zappia – because that ship is amazing and the way that Miles looks after Alex gave me a shitton of feels. (Have I raved about this book enough yet??)
Something That Makes You Happy When You’re Sad:
Cookies, Tom, Percy Jackson, pizza, Big Hero 6, ice cream, Men at Work, MY BLOGGER FRIENDS, Sorted Food, cat gifs, and…
A Book You Didn’t Care For:
Because the title is just OH SO APPROPRIATE: An Ember in the Ashes. The hype for this book baffles me. I found it lackluster in every way imaginable.
A Character with a Transformation:
The prime example for this will forever and always be Juliette from Shatter Me. That series is far from flawless, but the character growth is ace. Juliette starts off fragile and frightened, but by the end of the series she embraces her powers and takes charge of her life. LOVE. Honorable mentions: Lia from The Remnant Chronicles and Elise from This Song Will Save Your Life.
A Book with an Ending You Didn’t See Coming:
THE MIME ORDER. No words. Still no words. No words.
Something That Inspires You to be Courageous:
It’s probably cliché by now, but it’s a book tag – isn’t it required I mention Adorkable at some point? Jeane in Adorkable is an inspiration to me. I related to her a lot, and she definitely inspired confidence in my blogging identity and online presence. It’s probably in part thanks to her that I don’t hide that part of my life from real life friends, family, and colleagues, and that I can brush off the questioning/judging looks I sometimes get. Yep, I spend a shitton of time on social media. Judge me for that and you can go ahead and fuck off.
Happily Ever After
A Book With a Perfect Ending:
Isla and the Happily Ever After. IT’S NOT JUST THE TITLE. As I stated in my review, “The ending was absolutely immaculate. Honestly, I could gush about its perfection all day erry day.” All the characters get together and are so adorable and happy and asdfjkl; I just wanted to squish all their faces, and it left me smiling for days.
