Another Friday! I’m excited for this Saturday’s discussion because it’s on My Sister Rosa and then next week is Of Fire and Stars, so basically, lots of cool stuff coming your way.
In the meantime, I decided to do a tag today since I had something of a Pride and Prejudice review earlier this week. So, I am a massive fan of The Sims and when I found this tag I knew I had to do it. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do.
The tag was created by Hailey from Hailey in Bookland.
The Original Sims – The best author debut.
Marie Lu’s Legend.
The Grim Reaper – Saddest character death.
I really don’t want to give away any spoilers for books so I’m not going to get specific. I will say that a certain character from Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin dies and I literally sobbed on Jenn’s bed for about 30 minutes after.
Sims Getting Stuck – A character that just got in the way.
Radu from And I Darken. That kid drove me nuts throughout the entire book. He was such a pain and just always screwing with Lada’s plans.
Simlish – A book with amazing writing.
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis.
This book is so phenomenal and part of what makes it amazing is McGinnis’s writing. She has an ability to match the tone of the time with her writing and does so flawlessly in A Madness So Discreet. She’s so talented. Even as I read The Female of the Species I’m amazed by just how good her writing is.
Expansion Packs – A series where the books keep on getting better.
I’m giving this to A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.
Typically when I do tags I try to avoid Maas and J.K. Rowling simply because most everyone seems to agree that they have amazing books. Honestly though, Maas has to take this question. She’s killed it on the Thrown of Glass series and ACOTAR was a book I wasn’t really a big fan of until A Court of Mist and Fury came out. ACOMAF completely changed my opinion of the series and therefore won the right to be gifted as the series that just keeps getting better.
Sim Romance – The worst case of insta-love.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone felt super insta-love even though there was a whole backstory to the romance.
Cheats – A book that was entirely unrealistic.
This isn’t really a fair question since I read a lot of fantasy and realistically none of the stuff that happens in those books is realistic, so I’m just going to say that no book is truly realistic and that’s the beauty of books.
Needs Fulfillment – A character who made all the wrong decisions.
Let’s go with the main character (I think her name was Adelaide or something like that?) from The Glittering Court. That girl messed up all of her decisions were terrible.
Error Code 12 – A series that started off great but went downhill from there.
I honestly couldn’t find a series that started out amazing but ended poorly. Plus, again, I don’t think it’s an entirely fair question.
The Sims Vortex – A book/series that completely engrossed you.
The Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead (I know, two Mead books in one post).
I enjoyed Bloodlines simply because it was still a part of the VA world and included Adrian. It was an interesting and easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I’m tagging anyone who wants to do the tag.
