Now, let the games begin!! 😀
I’d like to pick Anabelle from Bringing Down the Duke – a historic romance, for my pick of a strategic character. Anabelle knows what she wants to do with her life. But she also knows that in 18th Century England, there is a way to get the men agree to her ambitions. I loved her strategizing in this fun filled romance 🙂
I think I’ll pick Princess Jaya Rao from the cute romance, Of Curses and Kisses. Jaya is beautiful and intelligent as well. And also her values and heart in the right place. Loved reading her in the books 🙂
Oooh!! I just know who to pick for this one. Hands down, its Maurice Swift from A Ladder to the Sky, written by one of my favorite authors – John Boyne. Maurice is a character who is so hateful, and yet he feels absolutely within his rights to destroy other people’s lives in order to become a famous writer, even though he has little skill.
I’ve read quite a few thought provoking books, but I’d like to nominate Jasmine Days by Benyamin for this, for its story on how riots can start anywhere, and how it can turn our life around just like that.
I haven’t read a book that made me nostalgic or homesick recently, but a book I read and gave me all the familial feels was Little Women 🙂 I just love to read this book and the movie was so good too!
I’d definitely go for Circe, who was my most favorite rebel character last year 🙂 A Goddess who makes her own way in the world of Greek mythology surely deserves love and respect 🙂
I recently finished reading The Handmaid’s Tale and it was a really difficult book to read. I had been keeping off reading this book since ages, because of its content on my biggest fears coming true. I really hope it only remains fiction.
I’ve been trying to get into writing more seriously in the last two years and improving bit by bit. And so, this collection of essays by budding authors called I Wrote It Anyway, about the author’s reasons for why they write, made for a really inspiring read 🙂
I’ll nominate a series for this one – The Shades of Magic trilogy. These books have everything I love and need in a book or series – action, adventure, magic, fantastical worlds, a great plot, even more amazing characters, quotes to help you get through life. All this written simply!! One of my favorite series last year 🙂
I had recently read an ARC from Netgalley that I had expectations from but was disappointed – The Group. The premise of the book was something that I was really interested in, considering Im always reading about YA characters or adult characters in their 20s, it would’ve been great to read about women in their 40s. But the story and the narration felt really boring.
I had read Dark Things last year – an Indian fantasy which I had really enjoyed. The lead character in the book – Ardra isn’t a deity. She’s a demon, a Yakshi. However, she could’ve as easily been a deity in my eyes 🙂
I finished Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line last month and loved it so much. This book had all the feels for me. The characters made me laugh and became dear to me. But the story made me cry. Such an emotional rollercoaster, this book was.
I hope you guys had fun reading this tag!!! 🙂
