I was tagged for this tag by the creator Lori for this fun tag. From around the blogosphere I gather that the Lunar Chronicles is quite the hype, and I literally have no idea what it’s all about. Ha! But maybe this tag will teach me a thing or two.
- Link back to the creater: Lori
- Tag 5 other bloggers to do this tag
- Copy the rules
Alright, let’s get started!
Cinder | The Cyborg
A book that’s often misunderstood or underappreciated:
Euhm….. I really don’t know! I’ve been going through all the books I’ve marked as read on Goodreads, and scratched my head for the last 30 minutes, and I still don’t know.
Adri | The Evil Stepmother
A book with a horrible/cringe-worthy parent:
First thing that comes to mind is Cinderella! But aside from that I think a lot of YA books have both horrible and cringe-worthy parents. The latest I’ve read was Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. Seriously, what is up with the single parent Dad’s that just leave their daughters to do whatever, expect them to keep the house tidy and cook, while they keep up with the sports results on TV. Ugh!
Oh, and of course Feral Sins – talk about Daddy issues! Her dad is not only neglecting her, he’s allowing others to abuse his daughter. Hell, he’s even trying his best to force her into a marriage where the groom-to-be has only one goal: to break her. Fun times.
Iko | The Spunky Sidekick
A book with your favourite happy-go-lucky character:
Hands down Percy Jackson – and you can take your pick amongst all the books from Percy Jackson and the Olympians or Heroes of Olympus. Sure, Annabeth plans and plans and plans, but even plans made by a child of Athena aren’t always fool proof against this son of the sea god.
Scarlet | The Rescuer
A book with a character on a mission:
Guess I should have saved Percy Jackson for this one, because missions and prophecies seems to be his speciality.
Instead I will choose you,
Pikachu! Yeah couldn’t help myself. Syv and her harem of anti-heroes are on quite the mission, perhaps the greatest one ever: they’re trying not only to survive, but to live.
Wolf | The Fighter
A book with a brutal fight (with words or fists or weapons):
I’m trying so hard to go through a tag, without mentioning THAT book, but it feels like this question is just baiting me.
I think I’ll give this one to Deadly Captive: The Trilogy by Bianca Sommerland. It might not be an epic fight, between the hero, heroine and villain. But it’s about fighting for your survival and, being ready to do whatever it takes to stay alive.
Levana | The Villain
A book with the absolute worst villain:
Hmm worst as in “gosh darn, this villain sucks” or worst as in “omg what a creep/how evil can you get/this one puts the bad in bad-boy”?
I think the most sucky villain I’ve read about is Dia McLearey by J. B. because I can’t even remember if it’s mentioned who it is. 4 books and I’ve either forgotten, or it’s never really mentioned. Either way, that doesn’t really make a positive impression.
The ultimate evil, the source of all things evil, the worst of the worst have to be Cyrus from Deadly Captive: The Trilogy by Bianca Sommerland because WOW, on a good day it’s “only” a bit of torture and rape.
Throne | The Rascal
A book with the biggest schmoozer:
I might loose cool points and street cred here, but I gots to know: what is a schmoozer?
A schmoozer can be one of two things, either:
1.) Someone with the God-given talent of saying all the right things in order to secretly manipulate a situation so that his or her own concealed goals are fulfilled.
**For example, tons of guys at the bar are schmoozers. They’ll say anything a girl wants to hear so she’ll be more likely to take him back to her place**
2.) Someone who just charms the pants off of people for the sake of their own amusement.Old woman: What is a strapping young man like yourself attending an old lady’s 80th birthday party for?
Dude: 80? You don’t look a day over 21!
Old woman: Tehe, you are quite the schmoozer!
Okay, I guess that cleared it up for me, thank you Google and Urban Dictionary. Guess I got to brush up on my street slang!
I guess the one that comes to mind is Oliver from Two Brits. Why? Well the dude manages to convince himself, his boyfriend and their female roommate that it’s a great idea for them all to have sex. So, he’s literally charming the pants off the two of them. Got to say well done!
Cress | The Hacker
A book about technology or sci-fi:
Hmm not really what I read most of, but I think Dark Codes by Marissa Farrar matches this. It’s definitely about technology. I wouldn’t recommend the books though.
Erland | The Doctor
A book with an illness or revolving around medical issues:
I haven’t gotten around to posting my review for these two, yet. But it’s on Goodreads if you want to read it. At Any Turn and At Any Moment. The heroine keeps a serious illness a secret and, alienates herself from her family and friends. Go figure!
Winter | The Unsound Mind
A book with the craziest character you’ve ever read:
That would without a doubt be Chloe from Our Virgin, talk about going from 0 – 100 in no time. This virgin is, as self proclaimed, definitely no prude.
Jacin | The Soldier
A book with a military theme:
Again, this is not what I read the most. But I guess my latest read Private Prick by (Carnal Mischief #2) | ARC review at least have a military themed book and series title.
This tag was definitely both challenging and fun, as an (almost) pure Romance reader. Oh, and I still have no idea about the Lunar Chronicles except, it seems to have a great mixture of characters.
I hope y’all have as much fun with the tag as I did!
