Anyways, I have been addicted to it and it has been bugging me because it has been eating up reading time. (It's not really helping the reading slump that I have been in.) So, I decided to combine this game and books together to make a book tag! YAY! Most of the questions are going to be about various roles in the game, and then I will answer with a book that has the role in it or reminds me of the role. If it doesn't make sense now, then I am pretty sure it will make more sense once you start reading the actual tag. So, let's get to it!
Classic Mode. What is your favorite classic book that has no mythical creatures or magical elements?
Okay, this is kinda hard. I enjoy a lot of classics, but I am probably going to have to go with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It was one of the first classics I read and I absolutely fell in love with it! I never got bored with this book, and was honestly surprised by some of the twists and turns. Plus, I absolutely love learning more about that time period and how various people acted during those times.
Medium. Name a book where a character can speak to ghosts (or the dead).
I haven't read too many books like this (maybe there are lots of this type of books out there and I just haven't read them for some reason?) but the one book that comes to mind is Shadowland by Meg Cabot. I know I know, this is an older book (by YA standards), but oh my lord I love this series so much. Meg Cabot was my all-time favorite author when I was younger, back before the revolution of what YA books have become today. Anyways, this books gave me all the feels and there needs to be more people who have read these books so we can talk about the feels AND HOW THE SERIES ENDED BECAUSE HOLY CANOLI. Yes, it is so exciting that I needed to use all caps. Anyways, good book about a mediator and it has a cute romance. Read the book.
Godfather. Name a book where a villain was a great organizer of crime.
The feels. For this one, I am choosing my favorite childhood book: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Let me tell you, this books made me feel all the feels. I had my first ship in this book (this was back before "shipping" even had a name lol). It was the first big book that I had read. It made me love reading to the point where I become the bookworm I am today. But, the most relevant to this question, it had awful, creepy, terrible antagonists. Magpie terrified me to no end and never ceased to creep me out. Capricorn, the main villain, was (obviously) the worst leader of crime. And he is probably one of the most organized antagonists that I have read about to this day. He is definitely the godfather of all books.
Jester. Name a book where a character was just begging to be killed.
Twilight. By Stephanie Meyer. I'm pretty sure we can all agree on this one. Throughout the entire series, Bella constantly puts herself in danger. Then she literally asks Edward to kill her and make her a vampire. Not much else to be said here. She is the ultimate book jester. (Don't hate me I still love Twilight!)
Vigilante. Name a book where someone decides to take the law into their own hands.
I am definitely going with Night Speed by Chris Howard. Although Alana starts out as a legal enforcer of the law, some events make it so that she is now on the opposite side. Despite the warnings and how it hurts other people, Alana chooses to take the law into her own hands and get justice where it is due. She goes undercover and seeks out the stem of the problem. This explanation probably sounds really vague because I am trying to describe it without giving away any spoilers. My point is to just go read the book. It is my favorite book for a reason after all. READDDDD ITTTTTTTTT.
Executioner. Name a book where someone is set on killing a specific target.
Definitely The Bodies We Wear by Jeyn Roberts! This book is crazy good and I love it dearly. In this book, the world has been taken over by a new drug called Heam. It controls most people, and once you take it you are pretty much excluded from society. When Faye was younger, her and her best friend Christain were forced to take Heam. Although Faye survived, Chritain did not. Since then, Faye has intensely trained in combat and has tracked down the gang members who forced them to take the drug. She is set on killing them. That is, until she meets a boy named Chael. This is definitely on my top-ten list and everyone should read it!
Serial Killer. Name a book with a crazy (perhaps murderous) character.
For this one, I am going with The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. And no, I am not just saying this because it has a giant knife of the (new) cover or the work knife is in the title. I chose this one because when I was thinking of this question this one particular scene in the book came to mind. *SPOILERY SECTION* Remember when Todd encountered that one spackle? And how out of nowhere he just started murdering him like crazy? Well, yeah, that's the scene I am referring to. *NO MORE SPOILERS* That is pretty crazy and murderous to me, especially since it came out of nowhere.
All Any Mode. Name a book that has just about any type of character in it.
For this question, I chose The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. It is literally about a bunch of mythical/fantasy creatures in the world (along with the regular, old humans). Pretty much any fictional character you can think of is in this great book. If there is any book that covers all the bases, it is definitely this one.
Witch. Name a book with witches/wizards/anything else like this.
Um, isn't this one obvious? Harry Potter!! I mean, who would choose anything else? (Besides someone who would want to be original and not just talk about the same book over and over again.) The Harry Potter is wonderful and great and amazing and if you have not read it yet then I don't know what your problem is, but you need to get to it. Like right away. Right now. Go. Get the book. Do the reads.
Vampire. Name an awesome vampire boooooooook.
I think I will have to go with The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black for this one because it has such an unique take on vampires and I have not read anything like it before. While there are some of the basic, legendary traits of vampires in here (can't go out in sumlight, can be killed by a wooden stake, etc...), there are a lot of unique twists! For one thing, everyone in the world knows that vampires exist. Another is that while they are stronger than the average human, they are not Edward Cullen strong and can not throw trees around like it is nothing. I really enjoyed this book and the new perspective it brings on vampires.
Werewolf. Name a great werewolf book.
For this question, I chose a book that was on Wattpad a while ago. I believe it is published now, but it is definitely my favorite werewolf book out of all the ones I have read. It is called Teacher's Pet and her Wattpad username is hotstuff101. Okay guys, I decided to actually do some research (scrolling back to the very first book I have in my Wattpad library, oh my!) and found out that this book is now published as an ebook. The author's published name is Darlene Gibbs. Anyways, I read this book when I was like 12 or 13 and thought it was the coolest thing ever. I am not sure if I would like it as much now that I am older and have read a lot more books, but I remember really enjoying it. In fact, that is my first Wattpad book and the what got me hooked on Wattpad. So, yeah, I really liked this book when I read it and you should perhaps check it out. But don't hold me accountable if you don't enjoy it. I am still recommending you see what it is about. Besides, there aren't too many werewolf books out there anyways.
Arsonist. Name a book where a character likes to play with fire (literally or metaphorically).
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Katniss is the arsonist. She literally gets set on fire and this theme continues throughout the rest of the books. She is 'the girl on fire'. Who else would I choose for this question?
Yay! You made it through this hella long post. I am proud of you. Thanks for reading this and I hope you enjoyed! Are any of you Salem lovers like me? Leave a comment below about your favorite role or a book that you would have chosen instead!
I don't have anyone specific to TAG for this, so if you want to do this, then I TAG YOU! Yeah, you! Thanks again for reading, and I'll see you next time!
