I was tagged by Mir @ TBR and Beyond to do the Buffy the Vampire Slayer book tag. If you are not following TBR and Beyond well you really should! I’m so excited to do this one – even though she tagged me a while back.
A Character Who Lives a Double Life
Besides the obvious Buffy?? Come on I’ve read the comics lately… fine. Ummm… well Riley from The Mortician’s Daughter comes to mind. She tries to live a normal teenage life, but really she’s solving problems for ghosts she can see.
A Badass Witch
I haven’t read many witch books lately, I really should change that. Sabrina from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is really badass! Not as sweet as she was in the tv shows or original Archie comics!
A Character Who Just Provides Comic Relief
Trying to be original is hard lol… taking Mir’s answer and saying Mr Kindly from Nevernight! I can’t think of any characters that I’ve read recently that I found so funny and snarky.
Favourite Sibling Relationship
I haven’t read many books with siblings… and even less where they aren’t rivals. Roger and Dodger from Middlegame are by far my favourite! They are opposites, but complete one another. They’ve barely met, but have the most beautiful, complete relationship! Go read Middlegame!
An Extremely Broody Character
Well my first thought was Kaz… but that would be stealing another one of Mir’s. Instead I’m going to say Four from Divergent. He was my original brooding YA male character – he just happened to be replaced by Kaz lol.
A Character Who Undergoes Major Growth
I think Elisabeth from Sorcery of Thorns had a lot of growth in this book. She went to knowing exactly what she wanted based on what little she knew about the world, to exploring the world around her and realizing the world isn’t black and white.
A Character with a Redemption Arc
It may not be traditional, but Evelyn from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo had a bit of a redemption story.
A Parental Figure
The first one that comes to mind is Miss Honey from Matilda. Yes she’s a teacher, but I always remember just how sweet she is and how well she treated Matilda and encouraged her to learn.
A Character with Questionable Alliances
Ok I’ve tried. I can’t think of anyone at this point (T⌓T)
A Book with an LGBTQIA Romance
Well that was fun 🙂 I’m horrible at tagging, so if you haven’t been tagged and want to do this one… congrats! you have now been tagged lol.
