I was tagged by the lovely Ava over @ Reads, Rhythms, and Ruminations to do this wonderfully creative tag! If you haven’t already checked out Ava’s blog, see her newest post here! If you love anime and books, she’s got some great content for you 😀
Trump vs. Clinton: Name your favorite character rivalry
Twilight comes to mind but I don’t wanna go there. HOWEVER, I read Gemina in December and I gotta say I absolutely LOVED the rivalry between Hanna and Kali (A.K.A. Fleur Russo). The final battle between them was EPIC.
Turkey Failed Coup: A book you started but failed to finish? (DNF)
Ah. That would be this book.
I started it in November, I think, and couldn’t finish it before 2016 ended. I haven’t picked it up since. For now, it’s a DNF. I DO plan on finishing it, but not anytime soon.
Pokemon Go: What book did you buy or read based on the hype? Did you enjoy it?
I’d just started seriously reading again last summer, and so I was listening to all the hype surrounding many books, both old and new, to catch up on my reads. One that was a little older than the rest but still had some hype surrounding it on Goodreads was…
And yes, I did enjoy it. Very much.
Stranger Things: What’s one book you want everyone to read?
I just need everyone to know how awesome this book is. That is all.
Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr. Robot: What was your favorite book cliffhanger within a series?
I’m going to have to agree with Ava on this one and go with:
The ending to this book is probably one of the biggest cliffhangers I’ve ever read. I am DESPERATE to see what happens next. Lord of Shadows can’t come out soon enough. I mean, how can you end it like that!? Mind = blown.
The Tragic Crisis in Aleppo: Name the last book that made you cry or teary-eyed
I’m cold-hearted so not many books have brought tears to my eyes. However, two books really got to me last year and they were A Court of Mist and Fury and Half Lost (Half Bad, #3). But the win goes to Half Lost.
The ending to this book done near killed me. Tears actually fell from my eyes.
Brexit: Name a book you have an unpopular opinion towards.
One book everyone seems to love but I couldn’t finish was Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.
I had to stop reading after the second chapter. Purple prose is fine with me, but this prose was a bit extreme in its purpleness. And I had a hard time connecting with Juliette (that her name?). She seemed so…blah. I feel so bad for saying that, but there it is.
Leonardo DiCaprio FINALLY won the Oscar: What was your most anticipated book release this year?
Thank God I read Six of Crows last year. I had just enough time to hype myself up for Crooked Kingdom‘s release. What a glorious day it was when I finally received it in the mail, and what an even more glorious day it was when I read it and completely fell in love with Kaz and the others all over again.
In Memorium: Name a memorable character death
I was going to put the Half Lost death here (mostly because it’s the reason why I cried), but I didn’t want to spoil that one. I’m okay with spoiling this one though. That being said…
Spoiler Alert: I was NOT happy with Newt’s death. He was the best character out of all of them! His death was completely unnecessary. It added nothing to the story.
Samsung phones: One book that blew your mind last year!
It was an extremely tough choice between Six of Crows and this one, but ACOMAF was just so good in its character development and thematic elements. Simply a YA masterpiece.
