I saw this tag at Life of a Literary Nerd, and had to do it because I’m a Marvel fangirl! With Infinity Wars releasing today, I though it would be the perfect time to let the Marvel flag fly (I saw it last night and very much enjoyed it!).
Favorite First Book
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite first books.
Book that Takes Place in a Different Time
The Song of Achilles by Mais one of my favorite reads of the year so far! I absolutely loved this retelling set in Ancient Greece.
A Book Character You Liked More After They Were Casted
Murtagh is a character from Outlander that was always fun to have around in the books, but the character in the TV show (played by Duncan Lacroix) is just absolutely amazing. I’m glad that they changed his storyline a little so he has stuck around!
QUICKSILVER AND SCARLET WITCH
A Book With A Sibling Duo
The duo that immediately comes to mind are the Dane twins from A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab, who are absolutely evil.
A Villain That You Love and Can’t Help Being Attracted To
I think I speak for the majority of the Grisha community when I say I love the Darkling from the Shadow and Bone series. I still haven’t finished the last two (I skimmed the second one a while ago cause I wasn’t a huge fan), but I am planning on reading them all this year!
A Book I’ve Been Meaning To Read
Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman has been on my TBR since it came out! I’ve been reading to read this forever (and own the entire trilogy!) so hopefully I’ll be picking it up soon.
A Book You Can’t Talk About Without Getting Angry
I try not to be super negative when talking about books, because each one is a work of art that can be interpreted differently by others! But…one book I always feel a little disappointed in is Red Queen, which had a lot of elements that weren’t my cup of tea.
A Side Character That You Wish Had Their Own Book
I really love Elain Archeron from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I feel that she is such a nuanced character that we don’t know much about and who needs a bit of a redemption. I know there are a few more books planned in the ACOTAR series, and I hope that she is featured in one of them!
