It’s the start of a new week and, here at Literary Weaponry, what would that be without a Monday tag? This week I’ll be doing the Book Life Tag which I saw over at Thrice Read. Part of why I enjoy doing these tags is because it encourages me to go back through the list of books I’ve read. I get reintroduced to old favorites, stumble back across authors I loved and had forgotten about, and reminds me of the books, both good and bad, that I’ve had the pleasure to read. This tag was created by Crazy For YA.
Who would your parents be?
This is terrible, but scrolling through the books I’ve read I noticed that all the parents in them are either dead or absolutely horrible. Why is that a thing? Can a good protagonist not have decent and alive parents? That is disturbing.
Who would be your sister?
Paige from The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon. I love the characters Shannon has created but sometimes I think dear Paige needs a swift kick in the rear end. Who better to give it to her than a sister?
Who would be your brother?
Stoker from The Veronica Speedwell Mysteries by Deanna Raybourn. He is intelligent, cranky, moody, eccentric, and a whole lot of fun. He is also protective as a brother, I would think, should be.
Who would be your pet?
I don’t even have to think about this one. The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. How can I resist that cantankerous feline? He is my spirit animal.
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
Where would you live?
There could be no place better than V.E. Schwab’s Red London. A hint of the familiar with just enough magic and mayhem to make it interesting. I think Cheshire and I would do well there.
Where would you go to school?
Is there any other possible answer for this besides Hogwarts? I mean, honestly…
Who would be your best friend?
Kris from Anne McCafferey’s Catteni series. She is brave, adventurous, resourceful, and has a good head on her shoulders. While I am happy to have adventures I need someone logical and thoughtful with me to keep us out of trouble.
Who would be your significant other?
Yes, I am going with someone from A Court of Mist and Fury. No, it’s not Rhysand. He turned into too much of a lap dog in ACOWAR to hold my interest. Nope, I’m going to take Azriel. Strong, brave, level headed, and he has that “I may be quiet but I have a lot going on in my head” thing going for him. You know it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for.
That’s it for this tag but it was a good one! I enjoy digging through the books I’ve read trying to find just the right answer. I won’t tag anyone but, if you do this tag, please link back to me so that I can see your answers! Have a lovely day, everyone.
