As you know, Bloodwitch, book 4 of The Witchlands series by Susan Dennard came out last Tuesday and I’ve been talking about the series quite a lot. Today will be no different (I’m sorry, I’m just so excited about this release, I’m currently reading it and it’s SO GOOD), because I came across a fun Witchlands tag on Sam’s lovely blog, Some Books & Ramblings and I thought I’d give it a try! The tag was created by Inside My Library Mind. The rules are simple:
- Create the Creator
- Credit the person who tagged you
- Have fun!
So let’s jump right in then!
A character that grew on you
From recent reads, I would have to say Hypnos from The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi. When he first gets introduced, I was not a big fan for a reason I can’t really say because it would be a spoiler and the book has only been out for a month. But he really grew on me as the story went on and his character developed, and by the end, I truly felt for him and I was attached to his character!
A character you relate to the most
Like I said in my previous tag, choosing only one character or relationship or one anything is difficult for me, because I’m a very indecisive person. I have a few characters I relate to a lot, but for this tag I’ll choose Juliette Ferrars from the Shatter me series by Tahereh Mafi (even though I haven’t read Restore me yet). I read Shatter me last year, and the way Tahereh Mafi’s writing brings Juliette to life and allows us to connect with her and her thoughts really got me. After only a few chapters, I was already relating to Juliette so much, even if our circumstances are obviously a lot different. I could see a bit of myself in her.
I was gonna say The Witchlands, because it truly is my favourite right now thanks to Susan Dennard’s stunning world-building, but that wouldn’t be very original now would it? So I’ll go with the world of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Something you should know about me is that I LOVE SPACE and the premise of The Lunar Chronicles is fascinating, it’d be so interesting to see.
Favorite Anti Hero
Adelina from The Young Elites by Marie Lu (yes Noémie, we get it, you love her books) is the first character that came to mind so I had to choose her, especially because I read the trilogy so recently, and I truly love Adelina’s character. She’s so complex, and following her on her journey is so compelling. We follow her as we are in her point of view and it makes the story so captivating.
A loyal character
Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare without any hesitation. His loyalty to his friends, to his parabatai, to all the people he loves really, is wonderful to see and it’s so soft. Okay, now I’m emotional.
Favourite female friendship
I’m sorry but I’m gonna have to go with Safi and Iseult, I can’t not choose them. Their friendship truly is awe-inspiring, the love they have for each other is beautiful. They would do anything for each other, they trust and respect each other so much and I just love them A LOT. They have such an incredible bond, it’s amazing to read.
Favourite book relationship
As we’ve established in the previous tag, I can’t choose. So for this one, I will talk about Lei and Wren from Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan because they deserve ALL THE LOVE. They meet in this pretty terrible situation and as they grow closer, they become each other’s support to go through it, and their developing relationship is beautiful to see as they get to know each other and as they come to trust each other. I can’t wait to see more of them in the sequel ♥
For this tag, I will choose the Commandant from An ember in the ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I find her truly terrifying because I don’t see where her limit is. We know that she has feelings but she is so driven to her goal, does she even have a limit to what she’ll do to achieve it? I doubt it, but I haven’t read A reaper at the gates yet, so maybe I’m wrong.
I’ve always loved the thestrals from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. They are considered dangerous usually, but I don’t see them that way. It’s because of their appearance that some wizards think so, and sure they’re not the most gorgeous creature out there but that doesn’t matter. Somehow, I find it so intriguing how only people who have witnessed death can see them.
An intimidating character
I see Ia from Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan as very intimidating. Her personality is so large, and she has already accomplished so many things before the end of the novel. I’d be really intimidated if I were to meet her.
There we go, here’s the whole tag! If you’re interested in doing it, consider yourself tagged, I’d love to see your answers ♥
Who’s a character you find intimidating? I’m curious!
Until next time,
