Les Mis Book Tag

Les Miserables is one of my favourite musicals of all time. Whilst I haven’t finished the book yet (and trust me, I’m trying), I thought it would be a good idea to try and find a book tag.

I was in luck!

Eve at Twist in the Taile has created one! Even better – she tagged anyone who wants to have a go! (Yes I know it was a few months ago, but better late than never, hey?)

Without further ado:

I Dreamed a Dream
a book that didn’t live up to your high expectations

Zodiac by Romina Russel. Oh boy was I disappointed by this book. It had such a great premise and the world-building was insanely good. The first few chapter were breathtakingly amazing and then…the main character became a whiny little git. The story fell apart, which is such a shame because it’s about the Zodiac signs and astrology which are some of my favourite things!

The Confrontation
your favourite literary duo

Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, I would have to say. Ah, my childhood.

Castle on a Cloud
a book that comforts you

I had to think about this one for a bit, because I don’t tend to read fluffy books as such, but one that has been on my bookshelf since as long as I can remember is Rose by Holly Webb. It’s a book about magic and it’s set in the Victorian Era and I love it to pieces.

Red and Black
an unpopular bookish opinion

I like The Maze Runner. Not many people seem to due to the lack of answers we get given. However, I can forgive this because I absolutely adore the characters and they are what make or break a book for me.

Do You Hear the People Sing?
a book you read because of hype

Divergent? The Mortal Instruments? The Hunger Games? Six of Crows?
Pretty much half of my bookshelf is read due to hype, I’m afraid. Some are worth it though (Read: Six of Crows)

One Day More
a book that kept you reading into the next chapter (and the next and the next)

Six of Crows. I blitzed through it in about two days because it is SO GOOD.

On My Own
a ship of yours that isn’t canon

It’d take a year to list all of them, but let’s see…
Minho/Newt, Eponine/Cosette, Montparnasse/Jehan, Bilbo/Thorin (Does that last one count? Because it’s mostly based off the movie…)

Drink With Me
your favourite bookish friendship

Part of me is screaming Harry and Ron because…well, they’re Harry and Ron. The other part is screaming Enjolras, Combeferre and Courfeyrac because why not.

Bring Him Home
that one character you will do anything to protect


Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
a character death you don’t think you’ll ever recover from

Oh God.
Or the Pevensies.
Take your pick.

So there we have it! The Les Mis book tag! Thank once again to Eve, and I tag anyone who wants to do it.

  1. Yay, I’m so glad you picked up this tag! I used to ADORE Rose by Holly Webb — and there was that one set in magical Venice which I’m pretty sure I still own haha. SIX OF CROWS AND WYLAN *shrieks* Ah I love him so much ❤ And yas Eponine/Cosette. It is basically the most un-canon ship ever but…I still ship it loads haha.
