Hey guys! Today I’m doing a long overdue book tag! I’m so sorry it’s taken me so much time to do it but I have a lot more pending and I’m slowly getting through them! I still have to watch season two of The Mandalorian, but I just can’t bring myself to! For this one I was tagged by Shreya @ Dragons Wings and Bookish Things and M @ Inking and Thinking! Thank you so much for tagging me! This tag was created by Brooke @ The Reader’s Game.
Let’s get right into it!
Lightspeed Skipper – A character who is constantly in danger or on the run
Laia of Serra (An Ember in the Ashes)
They’re so many characters that are always in danger or on the run, but the first one that came to my mind was Laia from An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I feel like she’s always in danger or running from her enemies, especially during the first three books.
Razor Crest – A character with a spaceship
Spensa Nightshade (Skyward)
I’m still trying to ease myself into science fiction so the only character that came to my mind was Spensa from Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. I recently finished the first two installments in the series and I love it so much! M-Bot is so precious and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for him!
Darth Vader – A villain who always hides their face
Death Eaters (Harry Potter)
I literally took so much time to come up with a answer for this prompt. But I finally got it. I couldn’t find any nice fanart for the death eaters so we’ll just have to do without for this one. I never liked them.
Ex-Imperial – A character who is not what they seem
Silas (Sorcery of Thorns)
I feel like so many characters misjudged Silas in the beginning of this book, and it just makes me so sad because he’s actually not what he seems. But I love him so much and he deserves so much more than he got.
Mando – A character tracking down something that was stolen from them
Kell Maresh (A Darker Shade of Magic)
I’ve only read the first book in the Shade of Magic trilogy, but if I’m not wrong and my memory serves me right, Lila stole a black stone from him and he tracked it down? I should get to the other books soon too.
Young Boba Fett – A character who had a family member killed/taken/beaten before their eyes
Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief)
Percy sees his mom get taken by the minotaur at the beginning of the book and oh my god this is bringing back so many memories! I now have a sudden urge to read the whole series again.
Raised on Mandalore – A character who isn’t allowed to show their face
Soraya (Girl, Serpent, Thorn)
So I kind of bent this prompt? Soraya isn’t allowed to show herself to anyone outside, so hardly anyone knows how she looks. Technically, she can’t show her face, so I’m guessing that counts.
Unexpected docking – A character who joins a mission at a random point on the mission
Cameron Cole (Glass Sword)
I don’t remember much of the plot of the Red Queen series but I think Cameron joined in the second book or so? And her power was pretty cool too so maybe that’s why she stood out to me (she can nullify everyone else’s abilities).
High bounty – A character in debt and/or on the run
Hunt Athalar (A House of Earth and Blood)
Hunt was in quite a lot debt. How he had to pay it was just so cruel and honestly, he didn’t deserve it. I need the sequel to this book so badly! I would love to see how he develops throughout the series!
I’m going to be completely honest, this tag was hard. But I loved doing it! I’m not tagging anyone to do it but feel free to do it if you want!
And now we come to the second part of this post, answering your assumptions about me! I asked all of you for any assumptions you had about me in my April wrap-up and I did get a few, so let’s answer them!
- You can speak multiple languages.
I wish I could! I can only speak two, English and Hindi, so that sucks? I’m in the process of learning French (I keep taking long breaks though), so I can understand quite a lot of it but definitely can’t speak it very well.
- You’re tall.
I am! I’m really tall for my age, but that’s generic. Both my parents are really tall, so I am too. I’m actually one of the tallest people in my grade!
- You say you’ll be bad at something but then do really well.
Oh my god this is so specific! But most of the time, no. If I say I’m bad at something I am actually bad at it. It’s not something I’m proud of haha.
- You like to read fantasy.
Oh I love it! Fantasy I think, is the genre I read the most often. I just love diving into a completely different world!
- You’ve got long hair
Not really. My hair comes just a little bit below my shoulders, so I guess you could call it short. I can never take care of my long hair so I have to keep cutting it off lol.
- Your favourite character in the s&b show is Kaz
I think like a lot of people, Milo has to be my favourite character in the show. If animals don’t count, then it’s Jesper, for sure. I love his bisexual, chaotic, and cheeky personality!
- You’re an only child
Nope, I do have a younger brother! We’re five years apart, and I love him so much! He can be pretty annoying sometimes, but honestly which sibling isn’t? Fun fact: I actually wanted a sister, and my friend and I had a bet for it, and as you’ve probably guessed, she won. But I’m not complaining. I love my brother just as he is.
And that’s all for today! What did you all think? Do you have any other assumptions about me? Who’s your favourite character? Let me know in the comments!
