Having just finished the last book in the Lunar Chronicles series last week -- at least until the graphic novels release, yay! -- and having met Marissa Meyer at her Stars Above signing on Saturday, I'm still kind of riding a Lunar high. I plan on posting about the signing a little later, but I also remembered that Brittany created this tag awhile back to celebrate the release of Winter, and I thought, why not? No time like the present, right? =)
CINDER | The cyborg
a book that’s often misunderstood or underappreciated
People either hated this book or they loved it. It has one of the most unlikable main characters I've chanced upon in awhile, but I kind of like when I'm not supposed to particularly like a character. It always makes me want to gain a deeper understanding of the character and see why they tend to push people away.
KAI | The prince
a book about royals/royalty
I'm re-reading the entire Fire and Thorns series via audio right now, so it's fresh on my mind. I love how Elisa is raised up from a nobody princess to the queen of a land that is not her own...and that she makes it her own. She will do whatever it takes for her people, and she sacrifices a lot in the process.
ADRI | The evil stepmother
a book with a horrible/cringe-worthy parent
The vileness of Grace's father in this story knows no end. It makes me sick just thinking of what he did to her and would have potentially done to her sister.
IKO | The spunky sidekick
a book with your favorite happy-go-lucky character
Levi FOREVER! He was the perfect counterpart to Cath's serious side, and they made the most adorable couple!
SCARLET | The rescuer
a book with a character on a mission
Shazi is on a mission to end Khalid's reign of terror, and though it doesn't go exactly as planned, she still accomplishes what she set out to do. Man, I can't WAIT for the sequel!
WOLF | The fighter
a book with a brutal fight (with words or fists)
That fight between Manon Blackbeak and Aelin was phenomenal and everything I'd hoped it would be: fierce, bloody and death-defying.
LEVANA | The villain
a book with the absolute worst villain
The Dane twins just generally made my blood run cold whenever they were on the page. I like my villains at least a tiny bit sympathetic, thankyouverymuch.
THORNE | The rascal
a book with the biggest schmoozer
I just adored the silver-tongued Han from the Seven Realms series. He continuously gets himself into -- and then back out of -- scrape after scrape.
CRESS | The hacker
a book about technology, or sci-fi
Illuminae was my favorite book last year. I've already read it twice and am considering another re-read very soon. Kady is the hacking queen. She even hacks into one spaceship while stationed on another. I bow down to her prowess!
ERLAND | The doctor
a book with an illness or revolving around medical issues
I don't really ever intend to read books that feature illness or medical issues because they inevitably lead to the sads, but I actually really enjoyed this one when I listened to the audiobook recently. It's tragically sad but ultimately hopeful.
WINTER | The unsound mind
a book with the craziest character you’ve ever read
JACIN | The soldier
a book with a military theme
I loved this book about a girl fighting to attend a boys' military academy. I can't believe I ever thought it wouldn't be my kind of book.
That was too fun! I'm not tagging anyone because I don't know who's already done this tag since it's been around for a few months, but if you too are still riding a Lunar high, feel free to participate, too! And look for my #StarsAbove tour post soon!
