Hiii loves ❤ I was tagged by the lovely Sophia from vivalabooklife in the Musical Book Tag! As soon as I noticed that I was tagged (thanks Soph) I knew I had to do it right away.
She tagged me almost a month ago, but there’s no need to point that out.
Reading the prompts, I was a bit upset there wasn’t any Hamilton
I’m absolutely trash now but I hope sometime in August to post my Hamilton book tag, so watch out for that 🙂
Hamilton aside, let’s get started.
Wicked: favorite fictional friendship
Andie, Toby, Palmer, and Bri from The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson had the most incredible, loyal friendship. I loved that all four of them were distinct in their own way, and they didn’t fade into the story, like a lot of fictional friends do.
Sweeney Todd: favorite villain
Is this even a question? The Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is my *absolute fave* I feel like one of the few people who shipped Alina + the Darkling, and not
the whiny Mal. “Fine, make me your villain.”
Phantom of the Opera: favorite love triangle
One of my biggest turnoffs for YA books nowadays is love triangles. But there is ~one~ specific love triangle that just makes my heart swell with happiness. And that’s the legendary herongraystairs from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare—which includes Will Herondale, Tessa Gray, and James ‘Jem’ Carstairs. Even though I ship Wessa slightly more than Jessa, when all is said and done, either of these ships fly with me 🙂
The Lion King: favorite sidekick
This was one a bit difficult, but it weathered down to Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Simon is your typical Jewish nerd with glasses, a love for Nintendo, and *spoiler* immortality
because he’s a vampire. Simon + Clary make the best pair—only second to Jace + Clary 🙂
Grease: least favorite ending
I have so many books that could’ve been counted here—from Deathly Hallows, to Allegiant, to Half-Blood Prince to. . .well, All the Bright Places. So I’m going with Jennifer Niven’s insightful, but devastating YA debut novel. I nearly cried once I finished this book, but I was in class so I stifled my tears 😦
Matilda: favorite book ➙ movie adaptation
Harry Potter + The Hunger Games are my favorite adaptations ever. Not only are they loyal to the book, but they’re cinematic enough that they can easily be enjoyed without reading a page of the books
though I recommend it because the book is always better. In fact, I start my Harry Potter movie binge tomorrow to prepare for The Cursed Child on July 31st.
Les Miserables: favorite fictional death *spoiler alert*
When Queen Levana of the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer finally died in her home on Luna, we readers
known as Lunartics gathered in the streets to cheer. I despised Queen Levana with a burning passion. She was always snaking her way into our heroes’ lives, wreaking havoc. And when she tried to force Kai into marrying her?? *gags*
In return, I’m going to tag ➙
