Tag: Fictional Family Book Tag

I’ve been a little bit distracted from blogging lately, but I’m finally catching up on tags! Thanks to Teagan and Jess for tagging me in the Fictional Family Book Tag!

The Rules:

  • Pick 8 books off your shelves (try to not pick just your favorites!)
  • Arrange them into a random order (randomizers are good for this).
  • In the order they are arranged, open them to a random page and write down the first name you see. Don’t mix up the names!
  • In the last book, find the name of an animal/pet and write it down.
  • Put the names in the right category.
  • Tag people (spread the love) copy and paste these rules in your post, or write them out yourself.

Parent One

Elodin from The Name of the Wind

Elodin is an interesting choice for a parent. I could probably do better, but I could certainly do worse. Not to be, like, overly dramatic or anything… but I feel like Elodin would be a better dad than my own father, so I’ll take it.

Parent Two

Wallace from The Thousand Dollar Tan Line

Wow, I haven’t thought about this book in years but I’m a huge fan of Veronica Mars and I would be totally fine with Wallace as my dad!

Sibling One

Cass from What I Thought Was True

You know, it’s been three years since I read this book, but I remember liking Cass. I think most characters from Huntley Fitzpatrick’s books would be good siblings.

Sibling Two

Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse

This is the only book on this list that I didn’t actually enjoy. Honestly, Kestrel annoyed me half to death and I thought I got rid of this book when I moved. I would really rather not be her sister.


Alice from The Boy Most Likely To

I love Alice! Can I swap her and Kestrel? I’d much rather deal with Alice on a daily basis than Kestrel…


Baz from Carry On

I’m not sure that I’m really Baz’s type… and there’s the whole vampire thing… but okay. Let’s give it a shot.

Best Friend

Matt from Then and Always

This book was one of the very first ARCs I ever got (way back in 2014!!) and do you think I remember who the heck Matt is? Nope. I re-read my review and apparently he was the main character’s high school sweetheart. Is he a good guy? A bad guy? I have no idea. Why did I choose this book from my shelf?


a vasana from A Conspiracy of Stars

So, as I recall, the characters in this book didn’t really have pets. There are a ton of animals in the book though, and the animal that I first noticed when flipping through was a vasana. It’s been many months since I read this book, but I’m pretty sure that a vasana was somewhat like a deer, so I’m okay with this.

As I catch up on tags, I’m not really going to be tagging anybody in particular, but please feel free to do this if you think it looks fun! And, as always, if you like tags, please let me know so that I can constantly bother you with them in the future. 🙂

Monthly Motif: October Update

It’s time for another Monthly Motif reading challenge update! In October, the theme was new or old, and since I’m trying to catch up on all the books I bought myself this year, I decided to go with new (meaning books published in 2018)! I read a ton of books toward this month’s theme.

Books read:

Books not read:

  • anything else from my piles…

November’s theme is family, and hopefully I’ll be able to find something from my TBR that fits! Let me know if you have any suggestions for me. 🙂
