Good morning. For today’s post I have a tag for you all. This tag was created LorienKittyBooks and you can see the original video here. I originally saw this on Sam’s Nonsense channel (hosted by the lovely Sam) which you can check out here. I actually only got into Zelda games last year when I got Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on 3DS for my birthday and I absolutely loved it. I now have all the Zelda games on 3DS and have been playing Hyrule Warriors: Legends on my 3DS a whole lot. Anyway back to the tag.
Legend of Zelda – Your favourite classic
That is a tricky one as I’m not great at picking just one favourite, but one of my favourite classics is Jane Eyre. I have reread this book quite a few times now and would recommend this classic to everyone. I also love Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion by Jane Austen, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte, The Three Musketeers by Alexandra Dumas, War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy etc.
The Adventure of Link – A sequel that was just as good if not better than the original
For this one I am choosing Golden Son (book 2) and Morning Star (book 3) from the Red Rising trilogy. The first book definitely had its flaw but it was great, the second book was even better and the third book just blew all of it out of the water. I highly recommend this trilogy: it is amazing.
Link’s Awakening – Saddest book you ever read
To be honest, I don’t read alot of sad books, but I am choosing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I don’t know if it’s the saddest book but it deals with heavy content (set during the Nazi rule in Germany) and there is sadness within this book. If you’ve read it, you know what I mean.
Ocarina of Time – A book where the main character matures
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Not only do we see Kvothe as a child and a teenager, but we also see him as a grown man recounting his past. We see him develop and grow, perhaps not always in the best way and we also get to see him as an adult in the present.
Majora’s Mask – A book where time is an important element
I think I am going to pass on this one, because nothing comes to mind.
Oracle of Ages/Seasons – A duology or two books that don’t get the attention they deserve
I haven’t read too many duology (I think I’ve read two) so I am going to share two different books instead. Firstly Fudoki by Kij Johnson – I read this a few months ago now and I absolutely loved it. It is a phenomenal mix of historical fiction and fantasy but I think it deserves more attention – it has 2 reviews on Amazon and 85 reviews on goodreads. Second book is The City by Stella Gemmell, which I think is now the first book in a duology but I haven’t read the sequel yet. When I read it I thought it was a standalone, although it was left open for a sequel. I enjoyed this book, although it was a bit slow at times.
Wind Waker – A book revolving around the sea in some way
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. I mean it’s got the word sea in the title as well so bonus points for that :). Part of this book takes place on a ship at sea so its the perfect answer.
Four Swords – Book or series with the best fandom
I don’t really know so I’m going to choose the Potter fandom? I really don’t know.
Minish Cap – A book that reminds you of being little
Meg and Mog by Helen Nicoll and Jan Pienkowski. It is a long standing series following Meg (a witch) and Mog (her cat). I absolutely adored this series when I was younger, so of course it reminds me of being little.
Twilight Princess – A book with a dark theme
I wasn’t really sure about this one, but I guess a book that I recently finished would count and that is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – it definitely deals with darker themes, at least I think it does. It deals with things such as vanity, obsession, cruelty, manipulation etc.
Skyward Sword – A book that was difficult to get through
I don’t really have an answer for this. A book that took me a while to read was War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. I didn’t find it difficult to get through but it did take me pretty much a whole month to read because it’s over a thousand pages. I really enjoyed it though.
Hyrule Warriors – Most anticipated upcoming release
I have quite alot of anticipated releases but two of my most anticipated (I couldn’t choose just one) are The Successor’s Son by Trudi Canavan (third and final book in the Millenniums Rule trilogy) and The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon, which is a prequel novella in the Bone Season series. I am beyond excited for both of these. If you want to know more about the books I am the most excited for than check out my most anticipated books blog post here.
A Link Between Worlds: Your Favourite Spin-Off Book
I don’t know whether it is really a spin-off book but The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood. It is kind of a spin off of Odyssey by Homer but it focuses on Penelope (Odyssey’s wife) instead of the hero himself. I highly recommend this book and it is really interesting to see this from Penelope’s perspective.
So that is the Legend of Zelda Book Tag. If you play Zelda games, which one is your favourite? I hope you are all having a wonderful and I will see you next time.
