Favorite Debut Book From an Author
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Parker reviewed this book, you can see it here. But you know what? I loved this book, it was incredible. I will literally read anything this woman writes for the rest of my life. It made such a huge impact on how I see the world. Thank you, just thank you, for writing it.
A Diamond in the Rough
Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But They Turned Out to Be a Total Gem
Steris from Mistborn: Alloy Era books. This is the second gen of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn books. Set 700 years in the future from Vin and Elend. Steris is the very well organized, high strung, respectable marriage partner chosen for one of our leading men, Waxillium. Man, this woman was so incredibly irritating in book one. But over time, her quirks become endearing. And I love her so much.
A Book That Makes You Sleepy, or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention
Reamde by Neal Stephenson
Yeah, I mean, the story was fine, but Neal likes to throw all this useless knowledge into the story. You think it’ll be important later and it just isn’t.
Under the Sea
A Book With a Water/ Ocean Setting
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch Book 2 of The Gentleman Bastards series. Basically all on water learning to sail. Loved these books. Had some issues with them, but loved them. My review is here.
Beauty and the Books
Name A Book With The Best Bookworm/ Booklover
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. Lazlo Strange is my child and I will protect him at all costs. Known for bumping into walls while reading and walking, he is the best bookworm of them all. Here’s my review.
The Thief and the Princess
Name A Book With An Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance, or a Book You Didn’t Expect To Love So Much)
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. So this one was awesome. I was not expecting there to be a love story in it. But there was and it wasn’t the worst. =)
The Real Life Princess
Name A Book That is Based On a Real Life Person You Want to Read or Have Read
And I Darken by Kiersten White. This is a gender-swapped retelling of Vlad the Impaler. I just finished book 2 (review to come soon) but the first one is here. I really love Lada. She’s #thebest.
The Princess That Saved Her Country
Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know
Egwene from Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. God I loved her. She was just a fuggin queen and the best and asmdl;wehifmas i have no words. Parker has three adventures through The Wheel, here, here, and here.
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
Pretty sure everone’s answer here is Six of Crows but I’m going to try something different and say Infomocracy by Malka Older. The world is globalized so the diverse cast is just kind of… make sense? Like, it’s a good example of how it should be. See my review here.
Let Your Longggggg Hair Down
Name the Longest Book You Have Ever Read
According to Goodreads its Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss by a total of 96 pages. The next two are Wheel of Time books so that makes sense. Loved WMF. Need Doors of Stone right now.
I Determine My Own Fate
A Book Where There is No Love Story/ Interest or Isn’t Needed
The Apprentice Witch by James Nicol. I was just recently given this early in exchange for an honest review and I ADORED it. Wyn was just such a great character. A great Middle-Grade novel. Just going to last forever. Please see my review here.
Elsa & Anna
A Book in a Winter/ Cold Setting
I mean… I have to go with Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch right? The world has “countries” based on seasons and our leading lady is from Winter.
How Far I’ll Go
A Character That Goes On a Journey
So this may not count because I’m not done with it yet, but Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore is an exceptional story about a man named Milo and his journey to reach Perfection. He has 10,000 reincarnations to get it right, and he’s on life 9,995. Also he’s in love with Death. I know I’m going to read this about 9,995 more times.
Uh…. Alex =) / Any anyone else who wants to do the tag!!
