Hi guys, I hope you are all well. I haven’t done a tag for a while now so that is what I’m going to be doing today. This tag was created by Charlotte aka Bookmarks and Vlogging and you can check out the original here. I don’t really have anything else to say so I’m just going to get started.
Grey Wind – a book with a strong leader/strong first book in a series
I had to think about this one but I think I’m going to pick Mara from the Empire trilogy by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts. When her father and old brother die, she becomes the Lady of Acoma and must ensure the survival of her House. Mara is a fantastic protagonist and becomes a strong leader. So this can be used for a book with a strong leader and strong first book in a series. If you enjoy fantasy with a lot of intrigue then I highly recommend reading this trilogy. Check out my full review of this trilogy here.
Lady – a book with a noble character/setting
My first answer for this one was kind of a spoiler so instead I’m picking the Queens of Renthia trilogy by Sarah Beth Durst. In this world everything has a spirit and they can only be controlled by the Queen, who is constantly using her powers to protect her citizens. Young women are chosen to train as heirs, so one can replace the Queen as soon as she dies. I love Daleina as a protagonist and the setting of the trilogy is fantastic.
Nymeria – a book with an adventurous character/an adventure
The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. Bilbo goes on an adventure at the very start of this book. This is a fantastic adventure story and I highly recommend checking it out. I think it’s actually time for a reread for me.
Summer – a book with a loyal character/best sidekick
For this one, I think I’m going with Jean from the Gentleman Bastards sequence by Scott Lynch. He is very loyal to Locke, even when he’s being a bit aggravating. They’ve been through a lot together and I cannot wait to see what happens to them in the rest of the series.
Shaggydog – a book with a morally grey character
Sorry for the repeat answer, but I’m going with the Gentleman Bastard sequence. Locke is definitely morally grey. He’s pretty ruthless when he wants to be.
Ghost – a book that surprised you
This year I was really surprised by The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi. I didn’t know much about it when I picked it up but it’s become one of my favourite books. I loved it and I definitely didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. I highly recommend checking it out. The covers is also amazing.
Drogon – a book with an aggressive character/a battle
I recently started the Faithful and the Fallen series by John Gwynne and there are some fantastic battles in these books. So far I’ve read the first two books and loved them both, so I cannot wait to continue with the series.
Rhaegal – a book with an unlucky character
I wasn’t really sure about this one but I’m going with Fitz from the Realm of the Elderlings series. I don’t know if he really fits into this category but he does go through a lot and I’m basing it off that.
Viserion – a book with an icy setting/a cold character
The Riddle by Alison Croggon, which is the second book in the Pellinor series. A large portion of the book is spent in the realm of Arkan, the Winterking, who is the personification of ice so this book has an icy setting and a cold character. This is one of my all time favourite series and I will take every opportunity to talk about it.
That’s the end of this tag. It actually took me a while to come up with some of these answers but I got there in the end :). I tag anyone who wants to do this tag. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
