I was tagged for this book tag by Orangutan Librarian (thanks!!) a week ago but I only got around to actually writing it today :’) But here it is!
Iron Man – a book that made you laugh out loud
Oh, loads! Probably. I think. Every Terry Pratchett book I’ve read definitely, the Witches books are my favorite, but I haven’t read those in a while, the last book that I read that made me laugh out loud was Pride and Prejudice!!
Captain America – a book that sends a positive message
The one book that comes to mind is The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen, one of my all-time favorite books. It’s about a fat (!!) character who lives as her mean mother’s companion even though she wants to live her own life, and learns to realize her own beauty and just go out and get life (in short). All of that without ever even considering losing weight. I just loved it, because it’s not even about her weight, it’s just a small part of the story, and she gets to live a really cool life that doesn’t even involve losing it.
Thor – a book with a character’s strength you admire
Uprooted by Naomi Novik, the MC is so interesting, thrown into a life she wasn’t at all prepared for but she manages to save her valley anyway. She is so strong in her way, discovering her powers and just running with it all.
Black Widow – a book with a kick-ass female protagonist
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. Vasya is such a kick-ass person, especially with the previous book in mind, she comes from this difficult childhood and just does all of these awesome things!
Hulk – a book that made you incredibly angry
On the Road by Jack Kerouac. I didn’t finish it, because I got so, so annoyed with it. I’m not sure if my feelings are completely justified, I’d need to read it again and fully for a real analysis (but lol life’s too short for that), but I remember getting so angry at the romanticization of just completely dropping people who are dependent on you for whatever reason, inserting yourself in someone’s life and just leaving without a word, and the general vibe of ‘slumming’. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to romanticize, but that’s the impression I got from it.
Hawkeye – an underrated book you think more people should pay attention to
The Princess and the Fool by Paul Neafcy, a really cool New Adult fantasy novel that’s really funny but also really dark, and just pretty unique. (You can read my full review here)
*BONUS* Loki – a book with a twist or surprise that tricked you
I don’t often read books with surprising twists, but the surprise from Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills really caught me off guard!!
That’s it! I tag BarelyABlogger, and everyone who wants to do it ^^ (if you want me to link you on this page just drop me a comment and I’ll do it ^^)
