I am a LOT late for this tag; it’s already halfway through February. And I only started to keep track of the books that I read only at the beginning of this year, so my memory is also a bit hazy πŸ™‚

I was tagged for this by lovely Cherry Blossom @ Letters to the Lost and this tag was created by Alex @ The Scribe Owl. I’m gonna jump right into the tag without any further delay!

The rules

  • Fill out each of the prompts with your answer. Each character/book you choose has to be one you read in 2020.
  • Tag as many or few people as you want, but preferably somewhere around 10.

Best Villain

The villain of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I can’t say more as it would be venturing into spoilery territory. The Hollowgasts and the wights are creepy, call me a wimp. It took a lot for me to sleep after reading this book.

Best Main Character

Knife in Knife by R.J. Anderson. She was relatable and reckless and brave and foolhardy all at the same time and she made a marvellous character.

Best Side Character

Leo Valdez!!! I loved him in the Heroes of Olympus series and I loved it when he showed up in Trials of Apollo as well!

A character you’re glad you aren’t

Katniss Everdeen. I would die two minutes into the Hunger Games, just saying. Even if I do, by some luck, survive, I don’t think I’ll make it through the psychological trauma she undergoes later.

A setting (preferably not in our world) that you wouldn’t mind settling down in

Corfu. It’s a small island off the coast of Greece where the book My Family and Other Animals is based in. (Review coming soon!)

A setting you would never want to live in

Panem. Like I said, I would never last in the Hunger Games. And if I lived in the capitol, well, I hafta say I’m neither a foodie nor a fashionista so my options would be pretty limited…although I would enjoy being on top of the world (evil laugh)

An indie or under hyped book that everyone would like if they tried it

Knife by R. J. Anderson. It’s the first book of the Faery Rebels series and centers around a young faery named Knife who wants to see more of the world and not just the Oak, where she lives. She falls in love with a human boy named Paul, and together they work to uncover a old mystery about why the faery magic is dying. Behold me who sucks at writing summaries. (No seriously, check this book out. It’s quite good)

Life of the party: a book that kept you laughing and having a good time

My Family and Other Animals. I just about died laughing reading it.

Most unforgettable

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I read this when I was small and did not understand it. And then I read it again and this book wrecked my heart into a million pieces and left me in a state of shock.

Most Unique: a book unlike anything you’ve read before

Life of Pi by Yann Martel. This book is about a deeply religious Indian boy nicknamed Pi who, along with a huge Bengal tiger, is is only survivor of a shipwreck. Nearly sixty percent of the book follows Pi adrift and lost in the Pacific Ocean in a lifeboat along with Richard Parker the tiger. Suffice to say it is unique.

  1. Thanks for doing this, it was so fun to read πŸ’™ I’m glad I’m not Katniss, like you said I would be the first dead πŸ˜… Panem is a pretty awful place to live, if you’re in one of the districts, and quite hard if you’re one of the Capitol and don’t agree with them. Again, thanks Jan, this was a really nice post πŸ’™

  2. Thanks so much for tagging me!! I loved your post, it’s true that I would never want to be in any of the dystopias I’ve read πŸ˜‰
