THIS BOOK (LIKE THE MOVIE) STARTED IT ALL
Favorite Debut Book from an Author
The Wrath and the Dawn duology holds the second spot on my (favourites) shelf, even after reading so many other 5 star books. The writing is beautiful, and Khalid should still be protected at all costs.
A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning but Turned Out to Be a Total Jem
Almost all of my possible answers for this question were contemporary books. I find a lot of contemporary to not be very interesting, so the fact that I loved Exit, Pursued by a Bear was shocking to me. It also includes one of the most weirdly relatable lines in “Do you ever dream of the day when your life can no longer be adequately summarized by Kelly Clarkson songs?”
A Book That Makes You Sleepy or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention
I wanted to love Flame in the Mist, truly I did. Sadly, it was fairly uninteresting and disappointing.
UNDER THE SEA
A Book with a Water/Ocean Setting
I’m going to count Salt to the Sea for this one because it’s centered around a maritime disaster, despite the characters only being around water for the 2nd half of the book.
BEAUTY AND THE BOOKS
Name a Book with the Best Bookworm/Book Lover
You have no idea how much it pains me to include Throne of Glass (if you’re new here, this series causes me great pain. So far, it has peaked at Queen of Shadows. I am willing to fight you on this), but both Celaena and Dorian like to read so it fits the question.
THE THIEF AND THE PRINCESS
Name Book with an Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance or a Book You Didn’t Expect to Love So Much)
Like I said above, I’m not a contemporary book fan. In fact, other than Exit, Pursued by a Bear, all of the contemporary books I had liked before reading The Hate U Give had a mental illness or bullying aspect that I could easily relate to. I’m also one of those people who ends up going against the hype more often than not. That being said The Hate U Give blew me away. If you somehow haven’t read it yet, rectify that as soon as possible.
THE REAL LIFE PRINCESS
Name a Book that is based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read
All of the books I’ve read based off of historical figures (My Lady Jane and Legacy of Kings) I haven’t enjoyed because of how poorly executed they were and how much I value the history being “messed with”.
THE PRINCESS THAT SAVED HER COUNTRY
Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know
Lada from And I Darken is the fiercest and most blood-thirsty protagonist I think I have read about.
THE PRINCESS WITH THE COOLEST AND MOST DIVERSE CREW
Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (like Tiana’s group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general
I was going to put Six of Crows as my answer for Jasmine, but the Dregs are my favorite diverse, lovable, yet unlovable crew.
LET YOUR LONGGGGGG HAIR DOWN
Name the Longest Book You’ve Ever Read
For this question I had to go through the many editions of A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings to find the hardcover edition (I read the mass market paperbacks which are roughly 1000 pages), so that I could compare the page numbers to A Court of Wings and Ruin, and City of Heavenly Fire. A Clash of Kings is the winner by roughly 40 pages.
I DETERMINE MY OWN FATE
A Book Where There is No Love Story/Interest or Isn’t Needed
I remember there being a romance in This Song Will Save Your Life, but if there hadn’t been any romance the book would still have been perfect.
A Book in a Winter/Cold Setting
Thanda where Essie works and lives is described as always having sub-zero temperatures.
HOW FAR I’LL GO
A Character That Goes on a Journey
Lazlo goes on the journey of his dreams to find Weep in Strange the Dreamer.
