The Birthstone Book Tag
Hi 😀 so today I’m gonna be doing this book tag Keira tagged me to do quite recently. It sounds so interesting so let’s see what it’s about!
Associated with warding off negative forces and dark energies- Name a book with the darkest/evilest character you can think of.
I’m gonna stick with Keira’s answer – Voldemort, obviously! He’s not even evil at this point. He’s beyond evil, as described in the books. The guy split his soul in
Purple is associated with royalty- Name a book with regal qualities
I have actually not read any books with royalty so far! So I’ll go with my instinct and say Game of Thrones, which is very popular and apparently features many kings and queens. And sudden deaths. I don’t know if I’ll ever read it though – looks like a hefty task, plus it doesn’t sound like something I’d get into. But who knows!
Washed out- Name a ‘wishy washy’ character, a character who is not strong/ a follower.
I’m digging deep for this one… The obvious choice would be Bella Swan from Twilight because that’s what everyone keeps saying but I want to pick something of my own, not by general concensus. Ginny from Harry Potter isn’t the strongest character on film, but in the books she’s perfect, and this is a book tag, so no.
I think I’ll go with the Divergent characters, especially in Allegiant. Y’all know my grudge against this book. There’s no particular character, everyone just sorta fell flat. Especially Four. Bye gurl, you and your flop POV
OH! Now I remember the answer I was looking for! It’s Linda from Paulo Coelho’s Adultery, or whatever her name was. She’s the main character, and ugh. I couldn’t reach half of the book. One minute she loves her family, the next she’s giving blowjobs to a highschool crush she just interviewed, then she’s in the shower with her husband who’s having fun sticking I’m-glad-I-don’t-remember-what in her hooha, then suddenly she’s depressed, then she wants to cheat and be with the blowjob guy, then she’s being a bitch to his wife, then she’s depressed again… Enough. Get a grip.
A diamond in the rough- Name a book you loved, but that is not well known.
Interesting one… Let’s go with the Perfectionists by Sara Shepard, I can’t get over how awesome this duology was to read. Go read it! I’d die if she made a spin-off/sequel, it’d work out so well. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be in the works, but she is debuting a new mystery series later this year so I’m pretty thrilled for that!
Said to balance energy- Name two characters who balance each other well.
I think Colin and Lindsey from An Abundance of Katherines go together very nicely. Their differences complement each other, and I loved their relationship. She broke the Katherine streak!
Side note – I just think it’s so incredible that you could literally find every single character description and type in the Harry Potter series. They’re the first ones that come to mind. It’s so amazing how iconic this series is. Fyi, the ones that came to mind are of course Fred and George. Ugh. It hurts. So bad.
Associated with loyalty- Name a character who is loyal to the end.
DID YOU HAVE TO MAKE ME THINK ABOUT SNAPE?!
I’m gonna say Chuck, from the first Maze Runner. He was loyal until the end.
Blood read- Name a book that made your blood boil, one that made you angry.
Okay, I fail. I can’t think of any non-HP book. Flop.
Well it’s obviously The Order of the Phoenix. So many things about this book is anger-inducing, from Harry’s own anger, to Umbridge being a total fucking bitch, to what we all know happened at the end. RAH!
Pale in comparison- Name a supporting character who you like better than the main character
I’m currently reading Scorch Trials and I can honestly say Thomas is NOT my favorite. I think it’s Newt. So kewt.
Blue like the ocean, calming- Name a book that had a calming affect on you.
Thirteen Reasons Why. Definitely. While this book’s purpose is certainly not calming, it was just so good for my soul. I read it right after my exams and I felt cleansed. Took my mind off things. And it transported me into Clay’s head, to the whole story, it was so immersive. Loved it.
Iridescent- Name an iridescent book (beautiful cover, character etc.)
All the books in the Lunar Chronicles series look GORGEOUS! Also, the Cormoran Strike novels by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a J.K. Rowling) all look polished and beautiful as well.
Associated with resilience- Name a book with a character who rises to the top in a time of adversity.
Every cliché ‘hero’ ever. I honestly wouldn’t be interested in reading such books, just like I’m not interested in watching such movies. Why would I want to read the same fight over and over again knowing who’s always going to come on top?
Associated with friendship- Name a book with a friendship you want to be a part of. (Tanzanite is the other birthstone for December )
I think it’d be pretty cool to have Quentin, Radar and that honeybunny guy from Paper Towns as friends because tbh they’re not too different from my actual friends and they seem like my bunch. But of course…
I think it’s pretty much common knowledge that the Golden Trio featuring Slayrry, Queenrmione and Riconald Weasley is the squad goal of everyone on this planet. I couldn’t not mention these three. Ugh how I wish I could be there and talk shit about Ron and Harry with my Herminouchette and I could stand up to her when she gets in catfights with those two and I’ll end up with her eventually while Ron goes and fucks himself. Ah…
And on this bittersweet note, I conclude this tag which was very fun to do! Thanks a lot for tagging me Kei, in my turn I tag Selfie, Luna, L (do u even read), Elm (like u do tags lel), Ruth (snap me gurl), Aspen (u 2 gurl) and emily (long time no c!!1)
Hope you enjoyed this 😀 bye!
