I thought it would be fun to do a bookish tag today! I found The Tropes Book Tag over at Crowing About Books, be sure to show Jess some love! 💖
Who doesn’t love a good bookish trope?? What are your favorites and least favorites? My favorite is enemies to lovers, and my least favorite is insta love!
Hopelessly Devoted : Name two characters from separate series that you ship
I think Aelin from the Throne of Glass series and Mia from the Nevernight series would be wonderful together. They are both incredibly strong and also independent and I think they could rule well together.
Damsel in Distress : Name a female MC who didn’t need a man to complete her
Veronyka from Crown of Feathers! She is so strong and independent, she never had to rely on a man to get her where she wanted to go. I loved this book so much, go read it.
Love at first sight : Name your OTP
Even though it will be forever and a day before the next book comes out, my OTP will forever be Nessian 🙃 I love Nesta and Cassian so much (especially Cassian WOOO he is perfection) and ughh god now I want to reread the series AGAIN.
Mental Illness as a Quirk : Name a book that represented mental illness well
Eliza and Her Monsters! This was the first book I got from Owlcrate and I read it immediately and absolutely loved it. I connected so well to this book because like me Eliza has anxiety, she struggles to make friends and attend social situations much like myself. Just, this book is so good. I highly recommend it. It was a 5 star read for me!
Chosen One : Name a MC that did (or almost did) ruin a series for you
Honestly, Scarlet from Caraval. The first time I read the series I found her incredibly annoying and very one dimensional. Still do actually, but because it is such a wonderful book I have forgiven how terrible of a character she is.
Friends to Lovers : Name a duo that went from friendship goals to relationship goals
Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. Book version that is, not movie version. Harry and Ginny were 100% more compatible in the books.
Amnesia : Name a book you would forget for one reason or another
Absolutely Batman : Nightwalker. Hate that book with a fiery passion and it ruined the entire series for me. I can’t even take an updated photo because I sold book as quickly as possible, I didn’t even want it on my shelves.
Bad Boys : Name your favorite villain
The Darkling. No contest. I don’t even know why, I thought the Grisha trilogy was sub par at best because I barely liked the main character Aline and I downright hated her man friend Mal. But the Darkling was the trilogies saving grace, I wish I could have an entire trilogy surrounding him 🖤
Missing Parents or Adults : Name a book that could have benefited from a bit of parental guidance or adult supervision
Probably the Six of Crows duology. Maybe none of them would have turned to a life of crime had any parents or adults been even remotely interested in them.
