The Lunar Chronicles Book Tag
The beautiful Alex @ The Book’s Buzz has come up with her own original tag for the Lunar Chronicles. She’s a clever little duck like that. Although she didn’t tag anyone in particular to do the tag, it looked like a lot of fun so I decided to give a go myself. Here we go…
Queen Levana: Who is your favourite antagonist or villain?
This one was an easy pick for me though I feel like I am cheating a little bit since I’ve only two of the three books in this series so far. But Jackal from the Blood of Eden series. He is such a terrible
human being, but trust me, you’ll love him! He’s hilarious. One of the few characters that can make me laugh out loud and just… I need more of him.
The Wolf: Choose a character that always like to get in fights.
The first thing that popped into my head was the Golden Trio from Harry Potter: Harry, Ron and Hermione. While they don’t always get into “fights” as such, they are always getting involved in trouble and drama and mysteries and conspiracies, no matter what they do or how well they plan!
Prince Kai: A character that is as charming & handsome as Prince Kai.
I want to say Will Herondale, because well, he practically invented the word charming and the word handsome certainly suits him, but I think that is a rather obvious choice. Instead I choose Mr Aubrey Fitzwilliam. Now let me tell you, this man – who gets practically no attention and that makes me so very sad! – is the epitome of charming and handsome. He’s also loyal, intelligent, witty in almost sassy way, adventurous and one of the cleverest characters I’ve ever read about. Go pick up Blaze of Glory, I beg! You won’t be disappointed.
Cyborgs: A book that discusses the topic of alienation or someone being alienated.
Six Impossible Things by Fiona Wood. This is a hilarious YA Australian contemporary novel about a boy named Dan whose life is filed with six impossible things at the moment. At his new school, he gets bullied because his mum’s business is called I Do Wedding Cakes – which sounds hilarious and punny at first, but then imagine it with the brain of a 14-year-old boy and you can see that it can be taken the wrong way too. On top of that Dan was from a rich, private school and he’s really tall and lanky, all awkward arms and legs, so you can see how he was bullied. But this book is so much more than that. It’s hilarious and just super adorable and a must read.
The Plague: Find a book that’s hype spread like a plague.
A hyped series that I am actually excited about, and recently received as a birthday gift – thanks IRL friends! <3 – is the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. It seems every person and their grandma has read this book at some point. Well, apart from me it seems. I must, must, must get on that bandwagon soon. I know I’ll love it!
Winter is Coming: Choose a book you are currently highly anticipating.
I’m still waiting for Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner which doesn’t come out until December! *wails* I think this sequel seems to have fallen under the radar a little bit. There’s barely been any hype – yet – but I really loved This Shattered World and I want more of this world already.
I am not going to tag anyone in particular since I wasn’t tagged myself exactly, but if you loved the Lunar Chronicles or just want to do a fun tag challenge feel free to consider yourself tagged. Oh, and leave a link to your post below if you do because I’d love to read your answers!
