Today I am going to be catching up on a lot of tags, so brace for a lot of posts coming your way! I was tagged to do the Wonder Woman Book Tag by Alaina over at An Infinite Book World. This banner was also made by Alaina. Without further ado, let's get into the tag!
1. Wonder Woman: Your favorite badass female book character
This was a hard decision between Feyre, Aelin, and Inej. But, since I just finished reading Six of Crows, I am going to have to give this one to Inej.
2. Fantasy Island: A book setting you want to escape to
Somewhere that I would love to visit is Los Angeles, the setting of Lady Midnight. There is just something about L.A. that seems like it would be a great place to visit!
3. London: A hyped book that let you down
I am going to have to give this one to Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I feel that the first book of the series (Throne of Glass) is very overhyped. I was very dissapointed when I read it and it didn't live up to my expectations. However, the rest of the series slowly got better, and I will be finishing Empire of Storms soon.
4. Steve Trevor: A book that has a beautiful cover and a great story (i.e. good personality)
I am going to give this one to Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and the story is phenomenal!
5. Lasso of Truth: A book you hated
A book I hated is Fallen by Lauren Kate. I have the entire Fallen series. But after the first book, I can't bring myself to complete the series. I found Fallen to be slow, not very entertaining, and hard to relate to. Which is really upsetting, because I really wanted to love it.
6. Wonder Woman's Shield: A book so sad that you need a shield
This is a hard question to answer because there have been lots of books that I've read that are extremely sad. One book that I found really sad that I've read recently is Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. The book was filled with sad moments and at the end there was a completely tear-worthy scene.
7. Ares: A villain that is scary, but you can't seem to hate them
I am going with possibly a really common answer for this question. And that would be Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Similarly to others, I couldn't bring myself to hate Sebastian, even after all of the horrible things he did.
8. The Amazons: A book that you wish had more/better LGBT+ representation
There aren't any books that I can think of off the top of my head that could use more LGBT+ representation. But generally, I think most books could benefit from some more representation in them.
