Are we not supposed to do books as the theme for a book tag? I know the point is usually to mash-up a book and something else from pop culture but *shrug* WHY NOT? I’ve been having a blast re-reading one of my favorite series — The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer — and coming up with fun posts for the Lunar Chronicles (Re)Read Along! One of them is this very post: a Lunar Chronicles themed book tag! There have been quite a few fun book tags going around the blogosphere and I thought a Lunar Chronicles one would be just delightful!
Anyone who wants to participate is more than welcome — you don’t have to be a part of the read along to do so!
CINDER | The cyborg
a book that’s often misunderstood or underappreciated
ALTHEA & OLIVER was a book I really enjoyed and after a quick look on Goodreads, I found out that it’s the book with the lowest average rating on my “favorites” shelf. Whomp whompppp. Maybe it was a lot grittier than people expected? I thought it was great, loved the friendships, and really connected with it overall.
KAI | The prince
a book about royals/royalty
A whole lot of royalty in THRONE OF GLASS and throughout the whole series (so far). I just adore this series and I’m so glad I got into it!
ADRI | The evil stepmother
a book with a horrible/cringe-worthy parent
My heart just breaks for Eleanor in this book. She has such a hard time at home and her step-father is just absolutely terrible.
IKO | The spunky sidekick
a book with your favorite happy-go-lucky character
I LOVE David in this book. He’s so happy, he’s a go-getter, and I love his sense of humor. I feel like the happy-go-lucky people are usually the sidekicks so it was so fun to see one as the main character!
SCARLET | The rescuer
a book with a character on a mission
Katniss is 100% rescuer (of her sister) and throughout the series, she’s got a serious mission to accomplish! She’s one of the first strong-minded characters I think of when I’m brainstorming fierce and determined females.
WOLF | The fighter
a book with a brutal fight (with words or fists)
I don’t think I’ll receive many arguments when I say that A Song of Ice and Fire is one of the most violent series I’ve ever read. It’s also freaking phenomenal… but violent. There are quite a few battles that go on outsides of swords and fists too — I love the verbal and mental games.
LEVANA | The villain
a book with the absolute worst villan
THRONE | The rascal
a book with the biggest schmoozer
Normally Thorne is my go-to for biggest rascal so I went a little bit of a different route. I wouldn’t say Kvothe is a natural first reaction for a rascally guy but he really does always find a way to get what he wants. He’s so clever and always uses that to his advantage and hello, he was able to schmooze Felurian. I think that counts for something.
CRESS | The hacker
a book about technology, or sci-fi
Space. Spaceships. Colonies throughout the universe. Gimme dat sci-fi!! Not to mention the entire book is told through various forms of technology and the book was SO EPICALLY AMAZING.
ERLAND | The doctor
a book with an illness or revolving around medical issues
I liked seeing another ailment other than cancer in a YA book (there are quite a few more gaining notoriety now) and I really connected with Payton as she and her family come to grips with her father’s MS.
WINTER | The unsound mind
a book with the craziest character you’ve ever read
I’ve read plenty of crazy characters from the many mystery books out there but Amy Dunne is by far the craziest woman I have ever “met”. Woo boy, she really takes things to a next level, and in so many unexpected ways too.
JACIN | The soldier
a book with a military theme
I used to think the military themes were just something that I wasn’t interested in… Turns out I was reading the wrong books. I’LL MEET YOU THERE is heart-warming, realistic, and bittersweet.
