I saw this tag recently and I thought, I just have to bring this to the WordPress circle. Originally created by book vlogger Jesse the Reader, this tag is just in time for the release of the Miss Peregeine’s Home for Peculiar Children film. Well, I have said my part about my expectations for the movie, my review of book 1 and 2 are up and I am currently reading Library of Souls. So without further ado, lets do this…
Abandoned House- A book you once abandoned but then gave another chance and ended up enjoying
Fables by Bill Willingham-
I had originally read the first volume of this series and I liked it enough. Unfortunately, I let it fall by the wayside as I had plenty of comics to read. Eventually I went back and caught up on the series, and although some of it can be bland, there is plenty of great storylines and plots that I am happy to have read.
Vintage Photographs- A book you would have loved to have seen illustrations in
I spent a lot of time looking up old Dungeons and Dragons books and arcade games while reading Ready Player One. Plus all of the awesome mix of characters and pop culture references would make for some killer illustrations.
Loop- A series you wouldn’t mind reading on loop; Back to back to back
Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson-
After I finished reading these books I just wanted to start all over again. If there was not so many quality books out there I would never read anything else. And it would still perplex me with its depth and mystery.
Peculiar Children- A characters ability that you desire to have for yourself
I could not even count the amount of times I have tried to use webslingers to complete simple every day tasks. Plus a whip around the big city looks like an adrenaline rush beyond compare.
Miss Peregrine- Your favorite character that is a leader
Prince Jorg Ancrath from Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence-
Barely a teenager Prince Jorg leads a team of deadly mercenaries, with fear and intimidation. With no qualms with killing off anyone who questions him, this kid is a deadly leader. One of my favorites for his strong proactive and competent attitude.
Jacob- Your favorite story where a regular kid discovers an extraordinary world
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll-
Easy choice as recently this book placed number one in my all time favorites list. There is no better tale about a child thrown into a chaotic magical world.
Emma- A fierce and fiery character
Gretchen from I Hate Fairyland by Skottie Young–
Mostly because this was a close second for the last question, Gretchen being loosely inspired by Alice. She is a fiery little girl with fierceness in spades, there is plenty to love about her.
Millard- A book that seems to be invisible but needs to be read by more people
Having just reviewed this underrated gem on Monday, I will take this opportunity to hammer it home. This is a funny, clever, and original story that is a fun breath of fresh air from more serious genres. An entertaining ride that everyone can enjoy, even with its pitch black tones.
Olive- A book that you bought that floated to the top of your TBR
My most recent example of buying a new book, knowing next to nothing about it, jumping in head first, and loving it. This book barely even saw the tbr pile and I am glad that I read it as quickly as I did.
Hugh- A book that stung and caused a lot of feelings
I’ll Love You Forever by Robert Munsch-
The sappiest, feeliest, little book on the children’s bookshelf. This sweet little story is full of sting.
Enoch- (NO SPOILERS) A book character that you would bring back to life
King Robert Baratheon from Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin–
It seemed like such a waste of a fragile character that held the balance of an entire kingdom. If ol’ Bob Baratheon didn’t die I would have never wasted so much time reading a series where nothing happens.
Bronwyn- A physically strong character
Uhhh… The Hulk.
Hollowgasts- A book you read that felt like an experiment gone wrong
Green Arrow, New 52-
Hot Shot Headlines is at the top of my notifications, as always that earns you a TAG.
