Hamilton Book Tag
I’ve decided that I want to start posting on my blog more often, so I’m going to try to do Tag Tuesdays! I found the Hamilton Book Tag from Kellie’s Book Nook. I also want to give credit to maureenkeavy for creating this tag.
I’m going to try to keep this as spoiler-free as possible but read at your own risk because some of the questions are difficult to answer without having some minor spoilers.
1. The Room Where It Happens: Book world you would put yourself in
The obvious answer to this question is the Wizarding World in Harry Potter, because who wouldn’t want to be a part of the Harry Potter universe? And even though I’d like to pick something other than the obvious answer, I’m going to pick the Wizarding World because every other fictional universe I can think of has a giant, unattractive flaw.
2. The Schuyler Sisters: Underrated Female Character
I don’t know if she’s really underrated, but I feel like Reagan from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell deserves some more love. She’s such a good friend to Cath and the book would not be the same without her.
3. My Shot: A character that goes after what they want and doesn’t let anything stop them
Aziraphale and Crowley from Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett are two characters who go after they want. They want to stop the Apocalypse and they go to great lengths to try to achieve their goals.
4. Stay Alive: A character you wish was still alive
I’m going to be intentionally vague here, but it’s a tie between three characters who met their demise in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
5. Burn: The most heartbreaking end to a relationship you’ve ever read
This is a tough one, but I’m going to have to pick a non-romantic relationship and go with Ted and his dog Lily in Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley. I cried a lot during this book and the ending still breaks my heart.
6. You’ll Be Back: Sassiest villain
Am I allowed to refer to Moriarty from Sherlock Holmes as sassy? Because if I am, I’m going to say that he’s a sassy villain.
7. The Reynolds Pamphlet: A book with a twist you didn’t see coming
This is a difficult one, but I’m going to have to go with The Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. It’s a classic mystery and the twist at the end is still one of the best.
8. Non-stop: A series you marathoned
I don’t really have an answer to this question because I don’t remember the last time I marathoned a series. It seems like every time I start a series, I hit a reading slump and I don’t pick up the sequel until weeks or months later.
9. Satisfied: Favourite book with multiple POVs
There are a lot of books that I could pick for this question, but my current favourite is Beartown by Fredrik Backman. There are so many characters and it’s one of the best books I’ve read this year so far.
10. Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story: A book/series you feel like will be remembered throughout history
I have two answers to this question. The first one is Harry Potter because I feel like it is going to be passed down from generation to generation and it will live on forever in our hearts. My second choice is a series that’s already a classic, and that’s Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s, Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes has influenced so much of today’s literature and I think it will continue to do so for years to come.
