The Room Where it Happens: A book world you would put yourself in
Ok, I feel like Harry Potter would be far too obvious choice here, so I’m going to do my best to be more creative…..nope. Can’t do it. And I don’t want to. Harry Potter universe it is 🙂
The Schulyer Sisters: An underrated female character
Bess Marvin. I swear, in the older Nancy Drew books Bess is often portrayed as the whiny and overweight friend. I loved the newer iterations (pre Nancy Drew Diaries) where Bess was like a tech girl. She knew how to fix cars, was classified as “curvy” (which led to all the guys loving her), and was much more of a badass! So much potential finally put to use 🙂
My Shot: A character that goes after what they want, and doesn’t let anything stop them
Katniss Everdeen. I loved the moments in the books when she was basically like “eff your revolution – I do what I want!”
Stay Alive: A character you wish was still alive
Query: How do I answer this without any potential spoilers?……I guess I’ll have to choose a much older book where the spoiler time limit has elapsed. I can’t say Dumbledore, because I feel like his death was actually important to the plot. Oh! Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games trilogy. I loved his character in the books, and was legitimately sad when he died. Plus, in the movies, he was totally easy on the eyes…
Burn: The most heartbreaking end to a relationship you’ve ever read
I honestly can’t think of one. Part of me believes that the relationships that broke up were not meant to be anyway. I typically get more broken hearted when friend-relationships end then romantic ones…..
You’ll Be Back: The sassiest villain
Personally I think that The Darkling in Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow & Bone series was pretty sassy. And I gotta tell you, I loved it 🙂
The Reynolds Pamphlet: A twist you didn’t see coming
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson. I know there are a lot of people that saw the plot twist coming in the beginning of the series, but I can honestly say that I didn’t. Maybe it was just me being scatterbrained, but I’m really happy that I didn’t see it coming. It gave it much more of a shock value.
Non-Stop: A series you marathoned
I often marathon series, especially when a new book in said series will be coming out. However, most recently, I burned through the Jenny Han series To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. My sister had been telling me to read it for a while and once I picked up the first book I was hooked!
Satisfied: Favorite book with multiple point of views
An old one that like NOBODY has read. It’s called Dream Factory. It follows two teens that are working in Disney World over the summer because of a strike that is going on. I must’ve read that book half a dozen times when I was younger. I don’t know if I would even technically class it as my favorite, but I loved it enough that it has stuck in my memory.
Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story: A book that will live on forever
Anything by Jane Austen. Her novels have been around for 2 centuries now, have been adapted into video format multiple times, and have a multitude of retellings under their belts.
Helpless: A relationship you were pulling for from the very start
Mia Thermopolis and Michael Moscowitz. 10 books (11 now) and I gotta tell you, I was shipping them hard from the get go. I don’t care who else she dated, it was all about M&M!
What Comes Next: A series you wish had more books
I know there are more books coming, but come on George! I want you to keep writing more A Song of Ice & Fire books…..the show has gotten ahead of you now. I need to know what happens on your terms.
Right Hand Man: Favorite BROTP
I love Cassian and Azriel. They’re awesome and I could read a book about just those two bantering for all of eternity!
What’d I Miss: A book or series you were late to reading
Most recently? The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The final book, Obsidio, came out recently. This meant my ban was lifted. I try to not start a trilogy until all 3 books are out. 2 nights ago I picked up Illuminae. Yesterday I finished Illuminae and promptly ordered Gemina and Obsidio.
