Hamilton Book Tag

WHAT TIME IS IT??

SHOWTIME!!

HA.
I LISTENED TO IT.

I’m so late to this fandom it’s unreal. I’ve had the album on Spotify for ages and forgot about it until this summer.

…I think I may like it more than Les Mis (and we all know how much I love Les Mis)

So, originally this tag was created by Maureen Keavy on YouTube. I actually found it done by Eve at Twist in the Taile and decided to join in on the fun.

Anyways. LET THE CURTAIN RISE!

*spoilers for Hamilton, The Maze Runner, Harry Potter, Take Back the Skies and Percy Jackson abound btw, read at your own risk*

The Room Where It Happens: Book World You Would Put Yourself In

…literally every single one.
I mean…
That’s so so difficult.
I’d have to go for Neverland.
Just because Peter Pan.
This book is my childhood (and probably my adulthood too, with the way I’m going) and I’ve spent so many years in Neverland, through reading every retelling I can get my hands on, that I’d be right at home.

The Schuyler Sisters: Underrated Female Character

I have to say, the first one that springs to mind is Wendy Darling. She’s not my favourite character by any means; but she looks after the Lost Boys, and her brothers, and puts up with Peter’s ego and Tink’s jealousy so I mean…yeah, she deserves this one.

My Shot: A Character That Goes After What They Want And Doesn’t Let Anything Stop Them

Oooooh…
Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy is actually the first person I think of at this point. For determination, she tops the scale. I don’t ever remember reading a book with such a headstrong character (in the best way possible!).

Stay Alive: A Character You Wish Was Still Alive *SPOILERS*

Aside from Phillip Hamilton??? *cries eternally* (Although to be fair, he’s not actually fictional, which makes it all even worse…)
Uhmm…
That’s actually really difficult, because I have SUCH a long list of dead favourite characters.
My mind automatically jumps to Newt from Maze Runner, because he was my favourite fictional character for a LONG time…
…but my mind is now screaming ‘Fred Weasley’ at me…
Fred it is.

Burn: The Most Heartbreaking End To A Relationship You’ve Ever Read *SPOILERS*

This one is actually from a slightly less well-known book called Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon. The couple was Cat and Fox and I cried so much honestly. I can’t spoil exactly how the relationship ends but…it ended with tears.
(Also Enjolras and Grantaire, but technically they weren’t ‘in’ a relationship so I mean…)

You’ll Be Back: Sassiest Villain

Can I say Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses? (I have read the rest of the trilogy, I know he’s not really a villain, but he kinda fits the criteria so…)
The other one that kind of fits, but again isn’t an actual villain is Gabriel Lightwood from The Infernal Devices – I can’t think of any *actual* villains at this very moment!

The Reynolds Pamphlet: A Book With A Twist That You Didn’t See Coming

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. I remember a twist towards the end and it somehow gave me an actual jump-scare; I genuinely nearly screamed.
(How on earth I got a jump-scare whilst reading, I will never understand)

Non-stop: A Series You Marathoned

The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan – I got the books for Christmas and read one per day; I was actually going to re-read them in the run-up to Christmas last year and never got round to it…maybe I’ll do “The Twelve Days of Olympus” and read PJO, HoO and The Trials of Apollo…who knows?

Satisfied: Favorite Book With Multiple POVs

I don’t read all that many books with multiple POVs, but the Gone series by Michael Grant is one of my favourites because of the diversity of the cast.

Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story: A Book/Series You Feel Like Will Be Remembered Throughout History

I mean, the obvious answer to this is Harry Potter, enough said. It’s like… the series to end all series. The fandom of fandoms.
You see my point.

BONUS QUESTIONS!!!

Helpless: A Relationship You Were Pulling For From The Very Start

Blitzstone. Calling it. If it doesn’t happen in the last book I’m going to be MEGA disappointed. (Magnus Chase series, by the way!)
Also! Elizabeth and Aaron from the Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman. It’s one of the only books I’ve ever re-read after being lent it by a friend and it’s like…a rainy afternoon book. I recommend it!!

Ten Duel Commandments: Favorite fight scene

Arghhhh I really have no idea I tend to like…skim fight scenes?
Wait no
Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian, like that entire fight at the end of the book (My specific favourite part, from memory, is where Nico shows up and drags his father with him)

Say No To This: Guilty Pleasure Read

Aside from reading and re-reading Peter Pan? Probably the few Jacqueline Wilson books that I still own, like Little Darlings and Midnight, they’re two of my favourite for nostalgia reasons.

What Comes Next: A series you wish had more books

WILDWORLD SERIES BY L.J. SMITH YES PLEASE
Two books is not enough my friends, it’s literally set up for a final one.
The second one was published in 1990.
You see my issue here.

Right Hand Man: Favorite BROTP

…I actually have to say Percy and Jason from HoO. (I didn’t like Jason at first? Why didn’t I like him? He’s so…genuine. Like, I love him. Obviously I love Percy too.)

What’d I Miss: A Book Or Series You Were Late To Reading

Where do I even start with this.
Well, actually, I tend to run into book series just before the last book is out, somehow I get quite lucky with that!
I’d probably have to go with Percy Jackson again, because I started reading the books right after House of Hades came out.

And that is the end of this tag! Not tagging anyone, but if you want to do it feel free – let me know if you do, I’d love to read everyone’s answers!!

I will see you soon, lovely people!
