“One summer night I fell asleep, hoping the world would be different when I woke up.”First line in Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
I wanted to do a tag and had come across this one a couple of weeks ago. I really like Disney so that was the only excuse I needed. The Disney Book Tag was originally created by Kat from the booktube channel Katytastic and you can see her video here. Let’s get onto the questions.
Answer: Enne Salta from Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
A character out of their element is a typical thing to come across especially in fantasy books. However, no one is more perfect for this than Enne. She’s spent all her life trying to become a proper lady. You know, she’s polite, knows what all the cutlery is for etc. In the beginning of the book, she arrives at New Reynes which is the complete opposite of what she’s used to. There’s crime, violence and gangs which she then has to navigate to find her mother.
Bonus answer: Eugenides in The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner. It’s the third book in the series and therefore too spoilery to talk about but if you’ve read it, you know what I mean.
Answer: Vin from Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
I struggled a bit with this one but decided to go with Vin. I can’t think of anyone else having as much character development as her. She’s a completely different person by the end of book three. Also, she kind of gets the whole Cinderella transformation in the first book so she needs to be my answer here.
Answer: A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
SO many characters in this one both good, bad and everything in between.
Answer: Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
The third book in The Inheritance Cycle about Eragon who finds a dragon egg. I remember that this quartet was supposed to be a trilogy but Brisingr was added because Paolini couldn’t contain the story to only three books. In my opinion, Brisingr shouldn’t exist. As far as I remember, NOTHING happened in it and I was so bored the entire time. I really like the other three books but this one was just pointless.
Answer: Jude St. Francis from A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Let’s just not talk about that because I’ll just cry again.
Answer: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
I feared this book because so many people love it but the synopsis didn’t sound like something I would like. I don’t normally enjoy that storytelling narrative that this is so heavily based on but I actually ended up enjoying it. The writing kept me hooked because that was just beautiful.
Answer: Lazlo Strange from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Lazlo almost seemed to obvious to me. His entire character is based upon his wish to find the lost city of Weep and someone happens to show up to take him to it. I definitely think his life improved by getting his wish granted.
Answer: Arya Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.
At first, I thought this question would be really difficult but then I remembered Arya. When is she actually Arya Stark in these books? She most often goes by other names (Arry, Weasel), and Martin puts emphasis on how she becomes those names/people. She is even more appropriate for this question in the later books.
Answer: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I want to be able to talk to Cath and be a nerd with her. I also just want a guy like Levi to exist in real life because he’s just so sweet.
Answer: Ruin from Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
I feel like I often go with The Mayor from Chaos Walking for this type of question so I wanted to pick someone else. Ruin is almost all-powerful and that is the kind of villains I love. I need to actually fear for the characters and feel like the villain could trick me at any moment.
I hope you enjoyed this little tag. If you want to do it yourself, consider yourself tagged. Otherwise, happy reading!
