Hello beautiful people!
At the end of April 2019, Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books posted the most brilliant tag ever … the Marvel Avengers Book Tag! Mind you, I was a little emotional after End Game … yes … don’t mock me. Anyways, I figured I would do the tag now to commemorate the brilliance of the last 10 (ish) years of the Marvel film universe and for the excitement of what’s to come in phase four of the Marvel universe (yup … I know the phases … I don’t have an obsession).
Also, please see Kristin’s responses (she has some good picks!) and be sure to look around her blog in general. She provides wonderful content and is a really nice person!
|| A Book That Made You Laugh Out Loud ||
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli — I had a strong feeling I would enjoy this novel, but I never thought it would be as funny as it was. Though there are some sad moments, Simon and his family are just a hoot! Reading from Simon’s perspective was also flippin’ hilarious, as Albertalli really pinpoints what may be going on in a teenager’s head … the stream of consciousness and the bluntness of Simon’s character had me in tears from laughter SO many times.
|| A Book That Sends A Positive Message ||
Winnie-the-Pooh collection by A.A. Milne’s — As you may all know by now, I love Winnie-the-Pooh. Not only because Pooh Bear is super adorable and silly, but I love the small yet incredible messages laid throughout all the novels. From learning to love those for who they are to seeing the good things rather than dwelling on the negative, Milne teaches important values for people of all ages to learn from.
|| A Book With A Character’s Strength That You Admire ||
Fruits Basket manga series by Natsuki Takaya — Tohru Honda is this beautiful character, one that I only think exists in fiction ha-ha! Seriously though, she’s lost SO MUCH in her life and at such an early age — yet, she still sees the beauty in life and the world around her. She doesn’t let tragedies and the scariness of the world get her down, and she always finds the good qualities in people. Her strength to just see beauty everywhere is something I strive for every day … it’s a beautiful way to live!
|| A Book With A Kick-Ass Female Protagonist ||
His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman — Lyra Silvertongue’s an amazing character, with an incredible story and character development arch throughout the trilogy. Young and in danger, she’s able to beat the odds and fight for her life. Using intellect and words rather than violence, Lyra’s able to get out of PRETTY MUCH any situation that comes her way. Thank you, Pullman, for creating such a bad-ass female lead!
|| A Book That Made You Incredibly Angry ||
From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon — Okay, I wouldn’t say this book made me ANGRY … just frustrated. I wanted to love this novel, I really did — but my goodness, I just couldn’t handle that main character!! I found both the main character and a few of her friends incredibly self-centered and manipulative. It just really irked me, especially since I don’t think they were supposed to be portrayed this way … but, that’s just my thoughts.
|| An Underrated Book You Think More People Should Pay Attention Too ||
A Hill Vampire series by Jenna Barwin — this was one of the first ARC’s I ever received, to which I’m incredibly grateful for, as I would’ve never picked it up on my own. Barwins’ Hill Vampire series is flippin’ fantastic, full of supernatural elements and some pretty sensual scenes. The latter was a reason I wasn’t going to accept the ARC, but Barwin is VERY tactful and tasteful with this element. I do hope her series becomes more well-known, for she deserves great recognition for it and I think SO many people would enjoy this series!
|| A Book With A Twist Or Surprise That Tricked You ||
Kill Code (Book One) by Clive Fleury — A recently finished free copy I received, I was NOT expecting the twist a little more than halfway through the novel. Seriously, I was in complete and utter shock! What’s even more amazing is the twist MAKES SENSE!!! BRILLIANT!
I’ve been tagging people a lot recently, and I don’t know who actually enjoys the Marvel universe … so I’m not tagging anyone. However, please feel free to do this and pingback my page if you want to!
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed the post! Oh, and Kristin added a fun question at the end … to which I’m adding that one AND an addition one! What is your favourite movie in the Marvel universe? Also, who are your favourite characters in the Marvel universe?
