MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!
I hope you have all had a great day so far and that Santa has been kind to you all. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas then I hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable Tuesday.
So for the Last Christmassy post of the year, I decided to end out on one of my favourite Christmas films…The Nightmare Before Christmas I found this tag on Boston Book Readers Blog! I love her blog as it always puts a smile on my face so if you haven’t please check her out!
But I will waste no more time and I’ll get straight into it.
1. Sally –loves someone a lot and gets them in the end
This was tough because literally, every book I read tends to have this kind of thing in it but I finally decided on Grace from the Mad World series by Christine Zolendz because not only does she love him in this life, but throughout the centuries and then fell in love with him again despite all the new things in their lives and even when she didn’t think it was him she still fell from him. Now that is love.
2. Jack – a character that longs for more
I would definitely say Meda from Joined by Mara Gan because she doesn’t want to be this magically destined princess person. She longs for more than that. In her frequently used words: Prophecies Suck.
3. Zero – side kick character
Rusty from the Lynburn Legacy Series by Sarah Rees Brennan. To be honest anyone from the Lynburn Legacy series is a kick-ass side kick but I chose Rusty because not only is he my favourite but he is a boxing instructor so he can literally kick-ass.
4. Oogie boogie – a book with a wicked villain
Carter from the Nothing Left to Lose Series by Kirsty Moseley because of all the villains I’ve read he is probably the evilest. All other villains have an agenda, a reason for why they do what they do to the protagonist. Carter doesn’t, he just does it because he wants to. Not only is this horrifying because of his actions but because it is terrifyingly realistic, really bad people don’t need a reason. That’s why he will always be the ultimate bad guy in my eyes.
5. Halloween town – a book with a creepy theme
I don’t read traditionally creepy literature such as horror or even venture too deep into serious mystery or detective fiction. I tend to stick to cute romance but Easy by Tammara Webber had a pretty horrific backstory of rape and it gave me chills so that counts.
6. Christmas town – a book that left you feeling warm and fuzzy
Easy. Falling Fast by Sophie McKenzie. It always makes me happy reading this and reminding me of first love and heartbreak and drama and all the great stuff. The ending will forever kill me inside. I’ve not gotten over it after all these years.
7. What is this – book that took you by surprise
Obscured by C.M.Boers. When I finished reading this and during reading it I really didn’t like it. The blurb was misleading and the writing bad. But a day or so after finishing I was writing the review and thinking things over as I usually do and something inside me just clicked. Like a flicked switch I did an about turn and the blurb suddenly seemed artfully disguised and the writing still bad but not as horrific as I remembered. I was shocked not only by the plot of the book itself but also by my about-turn in opinion. I would recommend this book if you couldn’t guess from that.
Well, I’m happy because it’s Christmas but also simultaneously sad because my Christmas posts are over for another year and they’re some of my favourite ones to do. But I will have to wait until next year. As I said earlier, I hope you have all had a fantastic day and I will be back soon with my yearly run down.
