You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

Hope you all had a lovely day yesterday! Just thought I’d do something fun today and I *love* the title for this tag- enjoy!

Basically  it’s a tag where you pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a question – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer.

Thank you so much to the awesome Upside-Down Books for tagging me to do this!

1. You only have one more spot on your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?

Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones) OR Vetinari (Discworld)

Cersei’s pretty smart, but Vetinari’s got the edge.

2. Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?

Ramsay Bolton (Game of Thrones) OR Death (Discworld)

I’m gonna be tactical here. I don’t want to imagine what horrible way Ramsay would try to kill me- but I feel like if I kill Death he can’t do nuffin. Except torture me horribly… Ah well, at least I’d get to say “I killed Death”

3. You’re on the bachelor/bachelorette an you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose too?

Gollum (The Hobbit) OR Miss Havisham (Great Expectations)

Miss Havisham- I feel like it’d mean more to her (I mean, it’s not “raw and wriggling” so Gollum wouldn’t care for it)

4. You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?

Ebenezer Scrooge (Christmas Carol) OR Bilbo Baggins (The Hobbit)

Well it’s not going to be Scrooge is it? Gotta be Bilbo (though he might need a nudge from Gandalf)

5. You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?

Harry Potter (Harry Potter) OR Bella Swan (Twilight)

Gotta be Bella. And I’m not even sorry.

6. You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own tv show of course), who is your sidekick?

Inej Ghafa (Six of Crows) OR Poirot (Murder on the Orient Express)

inej and poirot.png

I feel like they’d both be good, for different reasons. But Inej is more stabby and I reckon she’d be a good person to have my back.

7. You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?

Smaug (The Hobbit) OR Aslan (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe)

smaug aslan.png

A part of me wants to yell at Smaug to USE YOUR WORDS (I mean, you don’t have to burn people alive) yettt he just might eat me for that, so I’m going to have to go with Aslan. And to be honest, he might have withheld some information from me to teach me a lesson so- who knows?– I might even be justified.

8. You’ve just finished a book in which your favourite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?

Mark Watney (The Martian) OR Richard III (Richard III)

No question- Mark would cheer me right up. I have a feeling Richard’s comforting words might come with a knife between the ribs anyway.

9. Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?

Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows) OR The Darkling (Grisha Trilogy)

Kaz- he’s pretty cool and I feel like the Darkling might be a little emo for the popular crowd.

10. The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?

Voldemort (Harry Potter) OR Iago (Othello)

voldemort and iago.png

Do I want either of these to remember my birthday? Ermm going with… Voldemort. Iago is probably one of those jealous people that pays close attention to other people’s birthdays; I don’t imagine Voldemort has a great memory for birthdays.

11. You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?

Dracula (Dracula) OR Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass)

dracula and celaena

Celaena’s actually a great reader buuuut Dracula’s more charismatic. So Count Dracula Reads it is.

12. Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?

Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter) OR Walder Frey (Game of Thrones)

umbridge and walder frey.png

*Sighs* this is what happens when you have the bright idea to mostly use villains. Honestly I don’t want either of them to come. Dolores I guess, she likes pink and at least she’d be less handsy.

13. Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?

Humbert Humbert (Lolita) OR Edward Cullen (Twilight)

humbert humbert and edward cullen.png

Ugh ancient creep or younger creep- I’m not technically either of their choice since I’m not underage. Edward I guess- at least he looks young.

14. You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?

Peter Pan (Peter Pan) OR Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)

peter pan and atticus finch.png

I imagine Peter Pan’s pretty flaky with texts; Atticus on the other hand is probably on it. I reckon he’d write back long paragraphs promptly with perfect grammar.

15. You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mum’s been replaced by..who?!

Jean Valjean (Les Miserables) OR Gandalf (The Hobbit)

jean valjean and gandalf

Obviously Gandalf- he has magic and is often pedalling adventures- to be honest though I’d still be wondering WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY KITCHEN?

  1. Your answer to number 13 totally cracked me up! And it’s a shame you had to choose between those two to be your love interest but I think you made the right choice. And the Darkling and Kaz are both pretty cool I think but Kaz is definitely nicer. Maybe. That’s debatable. And between Death and Ramsey I think I might kill Ramsay. Sure I’d still die but Ramsay is a little too much. He was was of the best and most messed up villains on the show. Overall great answers! And great post! Thanks for tagging me! Im excited to do this one!

    1. hehe thank you 😉 Yeah for sure- mostly lol 😉 Yeah I feel like I made a mistake with that one tbh- because I don’t much fancy being tortured for eternity (I think he’d be glad, in a perverse way, that I couldn’t die). You’re so right. Thank you!! Excited for your answers!! 😀

  2. Lol, that is awesome! I need to do it as well 🙂

    Your sleep-over choices are no fun at all!! 😀 also, humbert humbert?? Uuuugh!!

    I would really like Mama Gandalf – imagine him in an apron making Bacon and eggs for you & packing school lunches ❤

  3. Thanks so much for the tag, and oh I loved reading your answers for this one as well! 😀 Getting to say you killed Death would be pretty cool, and I definitely agree with your answer for number five because I’d sacrifice Bella as well. Plus Harry a wizard so he could probably find some way to conjure up food, or a rescue mission maybe. 😀
    Also, personally, I wouldn’t want either Umbridge or Walder Frey at my house, but I agree with your answer for that one too.
    Great post. 🙂 ❤

  4. What a fun tag!! And this might be easy one to tackle!! Thank you for tagging me! I looved when you chose Aslan to fire for withholding some information, I totally agree with that!!

  5. For Numero Uno, I pick Cersei. Because girl kills anyone who spells better than her. On 3, I’m going with Havisham because while I dig Gollum’s deep blue sea pair of peepers, I ain’t interested in the rest of that package. On Number Five, it’s Bella. She looks delicious! On Seven its Smaug. Because lions always speak clearly. As for Nine? I would just quote Christian Slater by telling the popular kid that our love is God and that, yanno, we should just go get a slushie. The popular kids buy into that kind of Shakespeare, believe me I know. I was J.D. in high school. I know my selection isn’t one of the choices, but since I am not familiar with the choices, I’m going with it. Same goes for eleven. So I will go with the author of this here post. I will be your number one Booktube/Amazon/Costco subscriber. So long as you sign everything I send you. Okay, even if you don’t. And as far as 13 goes, I pick Humbert Humbert. When choosing creeps, always pick the one with better insurance. And finally, mercifully, I am going with Jean Valjean for 15. JVJ seems like the kind of dude who would make some great French toast, whereas Gandalf would probably just be contemplating the reason for its existence.

    If you noticed, I only checked on the odd numbers It’s an OCD thing, I hope you understand.

    1. Hahaha that’s true 😉 hahaha I get that lol!! Pahahaha she does 😉 Oh dear- I couldn’t imagine killing Smaug- I love him too much 😉 (although lions are awesome to be fair) hahaha they absolutely do 😉 That’s why I was *super* cool at school 😉 hahahahaha that’s a good call- I mean they’re both murderers anyway, so it’s kinda lose lose. Hahahha now that’s an excellent point. 😂😂😂
      Of course 😉 Thank you so much for your hilarious comment!!

  6. This is such a fun tag haha and some of your answers were so funny. My favorite was probably the Peter-Atticus one! I can’t wait to do this one, thank you so much for tagging me. 🙂

  7. oh my lord this was hilarious xD i love how you just took everything in stride?? you had the most awkward options ever,, case in point: umbridge and walder frey. for the marvel/dc superhero question, i would chose hercule poirot to be my sidekick because inej deserves to be her own superhero :)) also poirot would be helpful in finding the villain’s lair, etc, etc.

  8. What a fantastic book tag! I would have to disagree with you on 2. though – I would take the chance to murder Ramsay first, as I feel that I have at least a chance of convincing Death not to kill me (he’s a fairly decent chap after all…). Ramsay on the other hand….

    1. hahahah I know I actually feel like I made a mistake with that one- besides even if Ramsay doesn’t get a chance to kill me, he’ll just torture me for eternity… which is awful! And like you said, Death’s actually pretty nice and reasonable.

  9. Oh this made me laugh! That choice of fictional fathers though…I literally can’t think of two worse people. Love your lack of remorse about eating Bella! Also I’d love to meet Umbridge, I could find out where to get some of those kitten plates from.

  10. This is one hilarious tag! I love that you’d rather be pregnant by Edward and the idea of Dracula as a booktuber is absolutely fantastic! 😀 I am naturally bad at keeping my focus while watching videos but if Dracula was booktubing, then I’d be so in!

  11. Yes yes yes! I love this tag! It’s so much fun. I think it’s fascinating that you Smaug and Aslan in the same draw. Fairly brilliant. And you’re right– you did pick an awful lot of villains. Or, well, at least grey characters.

    This is super fun, but I’m glad you did it because writing all those names on scraps of paper sounds time consuming. XD
