Lost Girl Book Tag

Last month, Leelynn at Sometimes Leelynn Reads made an original Lost Girl Book Tag.

Though I’ve never watched Lost Girl, I love any excuse to do a tag.

(Also, the protagonist is bisexual? Whaaaaat?)

Leelynn’s blog is very fun; take a look when you have a chance.

Also, she made the graphics I’m using! WHAT CAN’T SHE DO??

The women in Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women are real people forced to be brave in different ways.

Maggie’s story was the hardest of the three for me to digest.

I wish more people had believed Maggie when it mattered.

I believe her…and I don’t think I’m alone.

Aaron Knodel, go straight to hell.

Basil Hallward believes that, deep down, Dorian Gray is a good person.

By gum, he’s SURE of it!

He’s, uh…

…wrong.

It’s between the Bible and the Qu’ran.

Verifying which is older took me down the most boring internet rabbit hole, so I’ll just list both and call it good.

I understand the plot of Eliza and Her Monsters concerns secret identity.

So does Fangirl.

They’re both green, which is why I lump them together.

(Spoilers for The Pit & The Pendulum)

Edgar Allan Poe’s The Pit & The Pendulum ends ABRUPTLY.

The Inquisition imprisons our narrator, tries to trick them into falling into a pit, straps them to a table to be pendulum-ed to death, superheats the walls, and turns their cell into a rapidly-shrinking lozenge (an actual description.)

SUDDENLY THE FRENCH ARMY APPEARS AND SAVES THE NARRATOR FROM THE PIT. THE TRUMPETS SOUND. THE END.

This happens in less than two sentences.

Really, Poe?

Did you run out of ideas?

I’ve always wanted to play Jaques in As You Like It.

He’s funny BECAUSE he’s depressed! Get it?

Also, Kevin Kline as Jaques is PRIME.

The part has been rewritten for a lady performer before.

THE PRECEDENT HAS BEEN SET.

IT COULD HAPPEN FOR ME.

(Spoilers for His Hideous Heart and The Cask of Amontillado)

I grew up with the moral that vengeance is bad.

(Also, it is the Lord’s.)

Still, while walling up someone for insulting you might seem extreme…

…I really can’t blame Cindy for doing it.

His Hideous Heart

Dear men,

Women are tired.

Shape up or face our bricklaying abilities.

(The “Not all men”-ers will be the first to go. TRY ME.)

My fourth grade class at the Christian school read two Scandinavian WWII novels, which is TOO MANY.

Snow Treasure was by far the worse of the two. (The other was Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, which I had already read in public school the year before.)

I have nothing else to say except UGH SO BORING.

Lex Luthor deserves more love!

HE STOLE 40 CAKES!

THAT’S AS MANY AS FOUR TENS!

Lex

Be more like Lex, everyone.

If I tell you, my mom will make fun of me for mentioning this book again.

Just, uh…take a wild guess.

I think…this tag convinced me to try Lost Girl.

Wow. Nice job, Leelynn.

I tag anyone who feels like watching a bi-led SyFy show about mythology.

    1. Thanks for commenting! This was a really fun tag to do! Apparently I only read books that are either very old or very new. 0_0 THERE IS NO IN-BETWEEN.
      Tomorrow is my day off, so I’ll have plenty of time to watch Lost Girl! I’m looking forward to it!
