Tag: Brave Book Tag

So, approximately FOUR MONTHS AGO, Mandy and Sha tagged me to do their original Brave Book Tag! I honestly don’t even know where this year has gone, but here I am, finally doing it.


Scotland: Land of Magic, Castles, and will-o’-the-wisps

Name a magical book setting 

I’m going to go with the weird, spooky 1920s New York City of Libba Bray’s Diviners series.

Clan Dunbroch: Merida’s family clan

Name your favorite bookish family/gang

I love the Kotova family from Krista & Becca Ritchie’s Aerial Ethereal series! Luka is, of course, my favorite, but they’re honestly all so great. I hope they write more books in that series. Someone please tell me why the Addicted series got 10 books and a spin off series (that’s up to book 5 now) and a spin off webseries, and the Kotovas only got two books.

Merida: princess, brilliant archer, and doesn’t need any man

Name a heroine who doesn’t accept her fate

Blue from The Raven Cycle! As the series begins, she’s told that her kiss will kill her true love. She’s cautious, sure, but she doesn’t let that define her life, and she becomes a really strong heroine as the series continues.

The Highland Games: Eligible Fight for Merida’s Hand in Marriage

Name a book where the stakes are high

Nevernight! And Godsgrave! Probably Darkdawn, too, but I haven’t gotten there yet.

Changing Fate: Merida Eats Some Enchanted Cake

Name a book where you thought it was going one way, but turned out to be a whole different way

I feel like I’m always choosing the same books for answers in tags, so I’m going to go with something totally different here — The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain. The whole premise of the book is that a young woman is raped and it completely derails the life she had planned for herself. While the book plays out fairly realistically given the time period (it takes place in the 1940s), I really thought that the whole situation would have been handled differently.

Elinor: Mama Turned Mama Bear

Name a character that goes through a big transformation

When The Brightsiders begins, Emmy is a rebellious teenage girl who has let fame go to her head. All she wants is to go out and party and get in a lot of trouble. As the book goes on, though, she learns a lot and really thinks about what she’s doing with her life.

Bear Brothers: Adorable, Mischievous Baby Bears

Name some of your favorite scene-stealing characters

While I loved the overall story of The One Hundred Nights of Hero, I also really loved the characters that Hero featured in her stories! Every one of them stole the show for me.

Mor’du: Demon Bear, Secret Prince

A Villain With a Complex Backstory 

HOLLAND VOSIJK, OKAY. Will I ever be over how the Shades of Magic trilogy ends? Probably not.


Do you think this tag looks fun? Please feel free to steal it, and link back to me so I can see your answers! Which side characters stole the show for you? Which book turned out differently than you expected? Let’s talk in the comments!

    Thank you so much for doing the tag! I have no clue where the year has gone, but I do not believe it shall be October in a few days! The Diviners is totally just a magical setting. I loved it, and it’s one of my favorite settings of all time. And omg, Holland for sure is such an complex villain/character. Definitely didn’t know where he would end up. Thanks again, and wonderful post! 🙂
