I was tagged by Jamsu to do The Umbrella Academy Book Tag over a year ago(!!!) but I’m finally doing it! Thank you for tagging me!
HELLO: NAME THE BEST FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES
You know, I haven’t read on in this series, but I would say that The Name of the Wind is a great first book.
THE HARGREEVES CHILDREN: NAME A BIG BOOK FAMILY (DYSFUNCTION IS OPTIONAL)
Any time I hear “big, dysfunctional family,” I immediately think of the Grants from Save the Date.
THE WORLD ENDS IN 8 DAYS: IF YOU ONLY HAD EIGHT DAYS LEFT, WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO BE YOUR LAST READ?
I never really do rereads, but I would want to reread a great book if I knew it would be my last. I think The Hating Game would be nice and comforting.
SPACE BOY: NAME A CHARACTER WHO PLAYS THE LEADER, BUT MAY NOT BE CUT OUT FOR IT
I have no idea! I don’t think I read enough action-y books to be able to answer this one.
THROWING KNIVES: WHAT LITERARY WEAPON WOULD YOU WANT IN YOUR ARSENAL?
Is Mia from Nevernight considered a weapon? Because I think she should be.
I HEARD A RUMOUR: NAME A BOOK THAT HAS A MISLEADING PLOT LINE
I’m going to go with Fly on the Wall, because the concept of a girl who turns into a fly and gets to observe all her classmates unnoticed sounds really fun, but mostly all she does is look at everyone’s penis. Or, sorry, “gherkin.” She’s too embarrassed to call them what they are.
KLAUS: NAME A BOOK THAT INVOLVES THE DEAD / GHOSTS / ETC
I don’t think I’ve ever used Cast No Shadow in a tag, so I might as well use it here!
THE BOY: RECOMMEND A BOOK THAT PLAYS WITH TIME (WHETHER IT BE IN DUAL TIMELINES, INVOLVING TIME TRAVEL, ETC.)
I think you could say that Sadie is told in dual timelines, and that book is amazing.
VANYA: NAME A CHARACTER WHO HAS BURIED POTENTIAL
I think that most of the characters in The Kitchen had the potential to be great, but the story just fell short.
LUTHER AND ALLISON: NAME A QUESTIONABLE BOOK COUPLE, AND WHY YOU DO OR DON’T LIKE THEM
Um, Jude and Cardan from The Cruel Prince. I can’t even decide if I like them or not!
11. HAZEL AND CHA CHA: PICK A DEADLY BOOK DUO
I couldn’t come up with a deadly duo, but then I thought of Soraya and her curse from Girl, Serpent, Thorn, and that seems pretty deadly to me.
12. GOODBYE: WHAT’S THE BEST FINALE?
I’m not sure if it’s the best finale of all time, but I really liked The King of Crows.
What’s your favorite series finale? What book had misleading marketing? Let’s talk in the comments!
