Am I doing a book tag for a book I haven’t read yet?
If it helps, I own the first volume! (I’ll read it…eventually.)
I found it at Althea is Reading.
Here we goooooo…
Dylan AKA Chatterbox
A book featuring a character that’s a little bit mean and a lot loveable
I’ve been thinking about Kyo Sohma again.
Sure, he’s a rude boy who doesn’t know how to make friends.
CAN YOU BLAME HIM, THOUGH? IT’S TRAUMA, BABY.
I love him so much.
Dani AKA Marvellous
A book that caused you pain
FISH DON’T EXIST AND I’M UPSET.
This book is only 250 or so pages and it’s PACKED WITH EMOTION.
I thought it was moving, in spite of a plot twist I can’t mention.
Please read it and see for yourself.
Alyse AKA Moodring
A book featuring monster girls
I gave in and preordered Squad by Maggie Tokuda Hall and Lisa Sterle.
The cover has strong Heathers vibes.
Though the book’s comps include Mean Girls and Pretty Little Liars, I’m fairly positive this is a Ginger Snaps/Jennifer’s Body situation.
Get in, loser! We’re going murdering!
Emma AKA Goddess
A book featuring a superpower you’d love to have
I love food-related superpowers.
Ciela in The Mirror Season can tell which kind of pan dulce someone would enjoy most.
I used to work at a bakery and loved recommending pastries.
If I had MAGIC BACKING ME UP?? Imagine the power I would have.
Lou AKA Glowstick
A book with great trans rep
I love Lumberjanes. Most of all, I love Jo.
Jo is a trans girl and the defacto leader of the Lumberjanes.
She’s great at puzzles, quests, and taking charge.
Everyone agrees that Jo was meant to be a Lumberjane.
Excuse me while I weep.
Bianca AKA Wraith
A book with a character you’d go to hell and back for
Amir Azadi of How It All Blew Up escapes to Rome after two kids at his high school blackmail him.
The kid comes out and makes new friends and lives on his own for the first time.
He goes through a lot to be who he is.
I want to tell Amir that it’s okay to make mistakes.
A book with a character much cooler than you
All four of the Scapegracers are a thousand times cooler than I was as a teenager.
Sideways is a disaster lesbian who can make a signature look out of an old t-shirt and day-old eyeliner.
I wish I was cool enough to have demons living in my sweaters.
A book featuring your favorite fictional relationship
I FINALLY started reading Dreams of Gods and Monsters and the YEARNING is NEXT LEVEL.
Every Almost Kiss and misunderstanding and moment of jealousy only serves to make me love Karou and Akiva more.
I JUST WANT THEM TO BE TOGETHER AND PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY.
A book with a secondary character you can’t help but love
Nate is the best, most deserving character in the Truly Devious series.
You can’t change my mind.
A book with a family dynamic you love
In all honesty, the family in I Capture the Castle is not one I want to deal with.
From a distance, though, they’re funny, if not charming.
I’d like to live in a cold, crumbling castle with them and write in a kitchen sink, if only for the aesthetic.
If you think doing this tag is going to make me read Cute Mutants, you are INCORRECT.
I’ll get to it! This year! Maybe!
Anyway, do better than me and read queer indie authors.
I believe in you.
