You know how I keep saying I’m behind on tags? Well, I was tagged to do this way back in January by the fabulous Keira and yesterday by the lovely Zezee– so I think it’s high time I did it! You can check out the original tag here too.
SETTING THE EXAMPLE: A PAIR/GROUP OF BOOK BFFS THAT YOU LOVE?
I’m gonna go with one of my favourite bromances: Jem Carstairs and Will Herondale from the Infernal Devices.
CHILDHOOD BESTIE: WHICH BOOK CHARACTER WOULD YOU HAVE LIKED TO GROW UP WITH?
Someone like Alanna from the Song of the Lioness quartet- cos I’d be guaranteed adventures.
FRENEMY: WHICH BOOK CHARACTER WOULD BRING OUT YOUR COMPETITIVE SIDE?
This is hard, cos I’m not an especially competitive person, but douchbags have a way of getting under my skin and wanting to prove them wrong- so someone like Draco Malfoy would make me want to beat them!
FASHION GURU: WHO WOULD BE THE BESTIE WHOSE CLOSET YOU’D WANT TO RAID OR YOU WOULD WANT TO GO ON A SHOPPING SPREE WITH?
Gonna have to go with the same answer as Keira here: Celaena from Throne of Glass. I mean, she has the best wardrobe- not just for looking glamorous and beautiful, but also kicking ass!
THE BAD INFLUENCE: WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU WANT TO COMMIT A SMALL ACT OF REBELLION WITH? (GO SKINNY DIPPING, SNEAK INTO A MOVIE ETC.)
Adelina from The Young Elites would be just kind of nut case I’d accidentally get on board with, before realising she’s, well, nuts.
BLOOD BROTHERS: WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU WANT TO BE YOUR SURROGATE BIG BROTHER/SISTER (YOU CAN DO BOTH IF YOU WANT)?
Lara Jean from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before would be the best honorary sister! I mean she bakes and does crafts- imagine having a birthday at her house! It’d be epic.
MOTHER HEN: WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU WANT TO BE BY YOUR SIDE WHEN YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY TO CHEER YOU UP?
Easily Mark Watney from the Martian. Even if I literally got stuck on Mars he would easily put me in a good mood!
THE COUNSELLOR: WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU GO TO FOR RELATIONSHIP ADVICE OR CONFIDE A SECRET TO?
At the risk of making this really Harry Potter centric, I’m gonna go with Hermione Granger, cos she is ridiculously level-headed and is wise beyond her years.
MORE THAN FRIENDS: WHO WOULD BE YOUR BOOK BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND (IF YOU LIKE BOTH GENDERS YOU CAN CHOOSE ONE OF EACH BUT ONLY ONE CHOICE!!)
Having finally read Gathering Darkness I’m loving Magnus! Not that I didn’t love him before- but this book reminded me why.
