Coming at you with another book tag! This one is a little more interesting compared to all the other ones I have done. I found this one @imanadventurest and @FableHaven. Both have pretty neat answers so check them out.
If the book tag interests you, here’s a clean template for it. Gotta make it easy for my fellow book bloggers to do the tags as well right? :D
Garnet (January): Associated with warding off negative forces and dark energies. – Name a book with the darkest/evilest character you can think of.
Awe man, I would say Umbridge from Harry Potter. That women is pure evil.
Amethyst (February): Purple is associated with royalty. – Name a book with regal qualities. You can base this off of characters or choose the King of all books.
Jasnah Kholin was the first person I thought of after reading this question. She’s from the Stormlight Archive series and is a very strong female character.
Aquamarine (March): Washed Out. – Name a ‘wishy washy’ character. A character who is not strong or a follower.
Allysa from Splintered. That series has such a forced love triangle it’s so annoying. Not to mention that Allysa is just so weak-willed. Ugh. Reading her thoughts is just mind numbing.
Diamond (April): A Diamond in the rough. – Named a book that you loved, but that is not well known.
Hmm before it was Poison Study and that was like years ago that it was not well known. Now it’s popular, so I guess I would have to say, Bound by Donna Jo Napoli.
Emerald (May): Said to balance energy. – Name two characters who balance each other well.
Victor and Eli from Vicious. I loved the dynamics they had one with one another. Ahh. <3
Pearl (June): Associated with loyalty. – Name a character who is loyal to the end.
Definitely Samwise Gamgee. Seriously, he wins the friend of the year award.
Ruby (July): Blood red. – Name a book that made your blood boil, one that made you angry.
There are many books that did this, and usually it’s the books I dropped. I think Unhinged or Her Dark Curiosity. Unhinged was annoying because of the love triangle as well as just Allysa’s overall logic and personality. UGH. Weak-willed characters are aggravating to read about. WAIT! Also Red Queen. I have so much disdain for that novel. It’s saddening because so many people like it. :C
Peridot (August): Pale green (it pales in comparison to other gems). – Name a supporting character who you like better than the main character.
Shoot. I have one on the tip of my tongue. I feel like it’s one of the characters in Red Rising that I liked better than the main characters. Oh! I liked the best friend and Art3mis from Ready Player One, more than Wade. And the Twins. I liked the twins a lot in Ready Player One as well.
Sapphire (September): Blue like the ocean which is calming. – Name a book that had a calming effect on you.
100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out a Window and Disappeared. Boy, that title is a dozy. Reading the novel is very relaxing for me. It’s entertaining and the events that occur are unbelievably strange that it’s comforting to me to read.
Opal (October): Iridescent. – Name an iridescent book, this can be a book with a beautiful cover (Shiny? Lots of colour?) or you can base it of a character (Quirky? Colourful?)
A Thousand Nights. I love the cover for this novel. Super elegant. I picked it up because I was interested in the story, but I equally pleased that the cover was breath-taking.
Topaz (November): Associated with resilience. – Name a book with a character who rises to the top in a time of adversity.
LOL literally every Main Character in most dystopian novels, especially in Young Adult. Therefore, I rather not waste my time choosing one and then explaining the process in which the character took that made me decide they were the perfect answer for this question. LOL all of them are perfect answers for it. Don’t really understand what I mean? I’m welcome to explain it down below in a question.
Blue Zircon (December): Associated with friendship. – Name a book with a friendship you want to be a part of.
I think Kaladin and Syph from Stormlight Archive. I really like their relationship and often when I was reading Way of the Kings, I would imagine me interacting with the both of them, which is uncommon for me to do.
Woot woot. That’s the end of the book tag. Hope you enjoyed reading my answers. Now, at the end of this book tag it wasn’t required for me to tag others, however, I’m interested in seeing what some of my friends would put as answers. Therefore, I shall be tagging them. I hope you guys don’t mind! And if you aren’t tagged. You’re welcome to do the tag anyways. Again, here’s a clean template of the book tag so you can copy and paste it easier. :D
Anyways, here are the victims!
I can’t wait to see what you guys have to say about this tag. And if the tag doesn’t interest you, don’t worry about doing it. I know there can be some pressure involved being tagged on things, but no worries! :D There won’t be any hard feelings at all.
