Good day, folks! Truth be told, I didn’t forget about this blog or the numerous tags that I have been procrastinating on, I just couldn’t find the time to write a satisfactory post. So, I apologise for going on an unannounced hiatus although I hope no one noticed it.
Because I couldn’t find time to write a book review or something else,
(excuses, excuses..) I am back again with yet another tag. Thank you so much for bearing with me!
Here are the rules of the tag:
- Credit the author, Inside My Library Mind
- Credit the person who tagged you.
- Have fun!
- Safe Harbors!
A character that grew on you
I think this is the third time that I’m mentioning the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I absolutely loved this series and everything about it. Katniss Everdeen who is the main protagonist is incredibly brave and has a huge heart. I loved how she was portrayed as tough as opposed to most authors who portray female characters as too weak and easily broken. I loved how Katniss was just 16 and already looking after her mother and sister. Her manner of speech and her presence of mind, the way she faced everything kept me wanting to read more and more.
A character you relate to most
I think I’d go with Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling. I love her ‘knack for embarrassing honesty’ and share her love for animals as well.
Going over Harry Potter, I’m going to go with a realistic setting here rather than a fictional one. I absolutely loved Young Bloods by Simon Scarrow. It’s a historical fiction revolving around Napoleon Bonaparte and set in revolutionary France.
A loyal character
I really loved Marley from Marley and Me. But since all dogs are the most loyal creatures, does she count?
Favorite Female Friendship
In the Time of the Butterflies, by Julia Alvarez. This was a historical fiction novel that was so full of thought provoking happenings. This is the story of the four Mirabal sisters during the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic (from Wikipedia). I wouldn’t categorise this as friendship but the story of these 4 sisters is just incredible.
Favorite Book Relationship
The World of Christopher Robin by A.A Milne. It’s not a typical relationship but I was enraptured by the tales and fell in love with everything.
Professor Moriarty from Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Going over how incredibly exceptionally amazing these books are, Professor Moriarty is a brilliant and beautifully bad villain. He’s my favourite because of his inclination towards academics. Rather than being just bad, he was bad in a clever way.
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell is considered to be one of the first fictional animal autobiographies. I loved the way the whole story was narrated from the horse’s perspective. All those detailed descriptions and tales, some of which were heartbreaking all came together at the end. I really really loved Black Beauty.
An Intimidating Character
Count Dracula from Dracula by Bram Stoker. I expected to be scared beyond wits while reading this novel but no. It was a wonderfully, chilling book. It was creepy in a classic way. It’s not just a lot of doors closing, or bloody and ghosts. This book was truly horrifying and written in such a masterful way. It’s the first horror novel I actually liked. Classic classic.
That was all for this tag! Thank you so much for reading! Let me know what your answers would be for the same prompts!
