Quite a while back, Sammie @ Bookshelves and Biros nominated me to do this wonderful tag. Go on and check out Sammie’s fabulous post and blog. She’s an incredible person and a fantastically talented blogger!
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was one of my all-time favorite stories when I was younger, and so I’m really excited to be doing this post. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of traveling through a wardrobe to discover a magical land?
NARNIA – A magical world you would like to visit
Well, I guess it would defeat the purpose to say Narnia, wouldn’t it? I’ll have to go with this one then:
Zodiac | Romina Russel
Even though I truly (TRULY) did not care for this book, the world the author built is wholly original and absolutely astounding. This galactic world/ecosystem is the only way I would live among the stars.
THE MAGICIAN’S NEPHEW – A book you think is underrated
*Whips one of my favorite books out of my back pocket*
Promise of the Wolves | Dorothy Hearst
This book is absolutely amazing. It’s about wolves. Not werewolves. But wolves. The author conducted extremely thorough research to bring you a fantastically well-written story surrounding a pack of wolves in a time when men and nature shared the same land and kept their boundaries, about 14,000 years ago. All I can say is you must give this book a try. You will not regret it.
THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE – A classic that you love
*Whips my all-time favorite classic out of my back pocket, off my shelf, and out of my e-reader because you best believe I have more than one copy of it*
Wuthering Heights | Emily Brontë
You guys, I love this book. And I know there are a lot of people out there who hate this book (and don’t get me wrong, I can definitely see why), but Wuthering Heights is a dark, unromantic romance that I can’t get enough of.
THE HORSE AND HIS BOY – A book you picked up without knowing what it was about
Captive Prince | C.S. Pacat
My friend told me to read Captive Prince but didn’t tell me a thing about it, so I took a chance because I trusted her. I thought it would be about a young boy who was taken captive and maybe raised by some evil organization plotting against the monarchy. That is not what this book is about…
PRINCE CASPIAN – A sequel that you loved
A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J. Maas
What can I say? This book is a freaking masterpiece. I painstakingly tried to avoid putting ACOMAF on here because I feel like I mention it too often, but it’s just too perfect to ignore.
THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER – A quest you’d like to be a part of
Tiger’s Curse series | Colleen Houck
This series had its fair share of issues, but the journey the characters embark upon is a memorable one, especially as it takes place in India. There’s magic, mystical lands (like Shangri-La), curses, and prophecies. If that doesn’t interest you, I don’t know what will.
THE SILVER CHAIR – A book you didn’t expect to love
Crown of Midnight | Sarah J. Maas
Throne of Glass was such a disappointment, I had to start reading this one with some severely lowered expectations, just to save myself from any more horrendous disappointment. I really did not expect to love this book as much as I did.
THE LAST BATTLE – A perfect ending to a series you love
A Clockwork Princess | Cassandra Clare
Cassie Clare really knows how to break a heart, but she did not tear my heart out with the Infernal Devices trilogy. Honestly, this ending was the best I could have hoped for. Bittersweet, just the way I like it.
THE PEVENSIES – A siblinghood of friendship you’d love to be a part of
Just like Sammie, I’ll have to go with:
The Blackthorns from Lady Midnight | Cassandra Clare
I simply adore the Blackthorn family. There’s a lot of them so it gets hella chaotic. They’re loud, messy, and just straight-up all over the place. But I love the bonds they share, so they’re definitely my top choice.
EUSTACE SCRUBB – A character who grew on you
There are a lot of characters that had to grow on me before I loved them, but my most recent one is:
Lila from A Darker Shade of Magic | V.E. Schwab
I’ll admit that I wasn’t that fond of Lila in the first few chapters of ADSOM. I thought she was annoying and ridiculously over-confident, but by the middle of the book, I fell in love with her tough, independent exterior and sweet, adventurous interior.
MR. TUMNUS – Your favourite mystical creature
Because I don’t have a favorite book that includes my favorite mystical creature, I’ll just post an awesome pic of one:
Dragons. Need I say more?
CASPIAN – A character with regal qualities
Nikolai Lantsov from the Grisha trilogy | Leigh Bardugo
Nikolai is a fantastic leader! He’s socially intelligent, cheerful, stylistically flamboyant, and personable. He has the power to appeal to his people and is cunning in the game of politics. On top of all that, he’s a soldier and commander, and he is proficient with an assortment of weapons. AND he’s swoon-worthingly handsome!
THE WARDROBE – Your favourite hideout/place to read
I really do love my bedroom. It’s where all my books are, so it’s the perfect place to read!
