Having just finished two hands-down amazing books in a row, and being in that place where I need to gather my thoughts to write the review they deserve, I’m going to take a quick detour and do the Unique Blogger Award! Many thanks to Maddie over at Munch Reviews for nominating me. She has a gorgeous blog, so check it out if you haven’t yet!
Now on to the book tag…
- Share the link of the blogger who nominated you
- Answer their questions
- Share some love with the blogging community by nominating 8-12 people
- Ask three questions for your nominees
Give yourself some love! If you’re comfortable with it, share your favorite picture of yourself, or tell me the thing you love most about you!
Eeps, this is a hard one. I feel like saying what I hate about myself is so much easier than saying what I love. If you ask me what I love about myself my first instinct is:
But probably my love of reading and writing fiction is the single thing (two things?) I appreciate the most about myself. Honestly, I don’t know what I’d do without books. These days it feels like some part of me is missing when I’m not in the middle of one.
Which fictional character do you love that you think would be horrible in real life?
Yass, I love this question.
I just have so many answers.
The two amazing books I mentioned just finishing happen to be Bright We Burn and Vicious, and, wouldn’t you know it, both provide answers to this question.
I wonder what that says about my tastes. Lada Dracul is definitely proving herself to be quite horrible in the last book of The Conqueror’s Saga, but that’s why I love her.
And Vicious‘s Victor Vale is also a pretty horrible person. But I still want to go out for a drink with him. Provided that I had a guarantee he wouldn’t kill/maim/torture me.
Yeah, I’m thinking I need to do another discussion post soon to gush about my favourite villains. On the lighter side, though, characters who get away with being attractive assholes in novels but would simply be assholes in real life include Dante in Legendary, Cardan in The Cruel Prince, the Regan/Connley power couple in The Queens of Innis Lear and basically every love interest ever in paranormal romance novels.
I should stop now. Can you tell that I have a lot of problematic faves? Because I have a lot of problematic faves.
What was the last show and/or book series you binged?
I barely watch shows, and I don’t really binge books. I guess I came close with A Song of Ice and Fire, but that was years ago. Maybe you could say that I binged Madeline Miller, because I read Circe in a few days and then decided that I needed to read The Song of Achilles ASAP.
One taken from Maddie’s list because it’s just too good to pass up, and two original questions!
- Hardcovers or paperbacks?
- Which fictional character do you love that you think would be horrible in real life?
- In your opinion, what’s a book that has a cover much better than its content, or vice versa?
As always, feel free to participate if you’re interested, whether you’ve been tagged or not. If you decide to do it, link back to this post so that I can see your responses. I look forward to seeing what you all think!
