A Magical Character or Book.
Matilda! Matilda was the first character to introduce me to the world of books and magic and she was the first ever character I, and most book lovers, related to.
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.
My Cousin Rachel. It was difficult to put down and I remember reading into the crack of dawn because that’s how thrilling it was! The ending will shock you.
A Book that Truly Shocked You.
Speaking of shock, I will go with the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series starting with Game of Thrones because I remember that infamous window scene was probably the most shocking thing that I had ever read until, of course, the Red Wedding. *shudders*
A Dark, Evil Character.
Brady Hartsfield from the Mr Mercedes series. Evil, absolute evil, the things he derives pleasure from… I tried to watch the show, but it took the book to another level and I just couldn’t bring myself to continue because that’s how twisted Brady is.
A Character that Should Never Have Died.
Finnick Odair… that ripped me apart. And Shireen Baratheon from Game of Thrones because she has that Anne of Green Gables purity of heart and soul that made it 10x worse.
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.
Gone with the Wind. I would like more Scarlett O’Hara please.
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.
Goldenboi Jaime Lannister (be warned that I may be using the below meme in the near future a whole damn lot) and Sansa Stark. Bonus: Ron Weasley (he’s recently become my favourite in the trio) and Luna Lovegood.
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.
The Secret History was a whole load of misery. You keep waiting for a trickle of happiness and it doesn’t come. Not once. Not even a little bit.
A Book that Still Haunts You.
The Book Thief. That ending was devastating because of a certain runner who was my favourite character.
A Book that Really Scared You.
I don’t read horror books, but when I get around to reading The Shining like our sweetheart Joey, I will put it in the freezer.
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.
Y’all know I have a bone to pick with Hermione (and Rowling). Bro, if Ron was my little sister, and I found out that her friend physically and violently attacked her because he felt entitled to her/permanently disfigured her face for life for choosing our mother over a club, well… well, I’m getting my own kind of birds ready.
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.
Oh the Places You’ll Go, my favourite and go-to pick-me-up.
A Cover too Scary to Look At.
There are some truly terrifying covers, but I’m also mindful of the fact that one day I might have to go through this post and what if I have to go through it during the night and it keeps me awake? So, I’m choosing a less scary one (and my own sanity). Let’s go for IT by Stephen King.
If you have time, please check out those who I’ve tagged, they’re all awesome bloggers!
