Truthwitch Book Tag | Book Tag

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!

I was very kindly tagged by Millay@Millay’s Musings. Please check out her blog here if you haven’t already, her bookish posts are amazing!

Here are the rules of the tag:

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.

Favorite setting

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.

Favorite Anti-Hero

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.

Favorite Villain

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.

Favorite Animal/Creature

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.

  2. Black Beauty – Can I just get a whoop whoop for such an amazing choice? And also, Professor Moriarty, hands down one of my favorite characters. The Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle books are one of my prized possessions to this day. And Julia Alvarez is such an amazing writer! My favorite book of hers is Before We Were Free which has a very similar plot line. Amazing post!
