Doesn’t that sound cheery? Hello, everyone! This book tag is actually a heap of fun. In fact, I’ve already answered the questions over on my BookTube channel but I had so much fun doing it I decided to do it again, here, for your personal entertainment. Thus, all the answers here were re-drawn and are therefore different. If you do want to see what I drew the first time, however, then hang tight – the video will be up in the next few days. If I remember (which I probably won’t), I’ll link it HERE. Plus I want to see some of your guys do it so I can continue to enjoy the hilarity that is sure to ensue.
What is this tag? I found this over at dreamlandbookblog (original creators of the tag: ReadLikeWildfire and Beccathebookreviewer) and it’s a tag where you pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a question – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer. LET’S GET GOING.
1. You only have one more spot on your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?
Peter Pan (Peter Pan) OR Horace Slughorn (Harry Potter)
I would pick Slughorn for this one! He’s such a smart wizard that he’d do right by me in a Spelling B, I think! Peter Pan would be too busy teasing everyone and getting answers wrong on purpose – for fun!
2. Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?
Aslan (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) OR Aelin Galathynius (Throne of Glass)
Honestly, I think I’d be screwed either way. But! I would kill off Aslan first – because he’s super magical, whereas Aelin has magical powers. Maybe I’d have a better chance with her? Or maybe I should just accept my fate and lie down.
3. You’re on the bachelor/bachelorette an you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose too?
Tarzan (Tarzan of the Apes) OR Tyrannus Basilton Grimm-Pitch/Baz (Carry On)
Whilst I’d love to give it to Baz because YOU’RE SUCH A CUTIE STOP PRETENDING TO BE EVIL – I’d give it to Tarzan. Because Tarzan likes girls and Baz does not. Besides, I wouldn’t mind having a super capable and strong man following me around.
4. You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?
Inej Ghafa (Six of Crows) OR Feyre Archeron (A Court of Thorns and Roses)
Obviously it would be Feyre. She might do it grudgingly, but Inej has got live to look after Kaz, am I right?
5. You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?
Aedion Ashryer (Throne of Glass) OR Fred Weasley (Harry Potter)
AEDION. DON’T MAKE FRED DIE AGAIN. WHO’S IDEA WAS THIS GAME.
6. You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own tv show of course), who is your sidekick?
Elizabeth/Lizzie Bennet (Pride & Prejudce) OR Rowan Whitehorn (Throne of Glass)
Totally going to pick Rowan for this one. I mean, for starters he can shape shift, for seconds he’s mega-super-awesome-cool. Lizzie would be good, but maybe not for DC. Plus she’s totally better than me – so I could be her sidekick?
7. You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?
Ren Rajaram (Tiger’s Curse) OR Kazz Brekker (Six of Crows)
KAZZ. Could you even imagine Kazz having superiors? That just would not work. Not in the slightest. Bless Ren, such a sweetie. He can stay in my avocado-loving company.
8. You’ve just finished a book in which your favourite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?
Mo Folchart (Inkheart) OR Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter)
It really could go either way with this one, but I’ll pick Ginny. Mo is too mistrustful of the world and would probably sit there saying: well I told you they’d die. Honestly, Mo and his dying characters *eyeroll*.
9. Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?
Mr. Tumns (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) OR Dorian Havilliard (Throne of Glass)
Mr. Tumnas – HAH, just kidding. Dorian would be the cool kid for sure. Not only would he be a part of the popular clique, he’d probably be leading it. Mr. Tumnus can come sit with me as we defend our packed lunches from the bullies.
10. The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?
Despereaux (The Tale of Despereaux) OR Elias Veturius (An Ember in the Ashes)
This was a hard one. In the end, I went with Elias because he’d be so busy trying to make sure his mum doesn’t kill him/saving the world/HOPEFULLY KISSING LAIA AT SOME POINT ALREADY/being awesome, that I wouldn’t really blame him for missing my birthday. Despereaux would be there though, I can count on that mouse.
11. You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?
Rhysand (A Court of Thorns and Roses) OR Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
I almost laughed when I plucked Hermione out for this one. If Hogwarts was “in” on the online world I’m sure she would have started a BookTube channel. I can just see it, she could call her channel “In the Library”. That being said, I’d love to see Rhysand start a channel too.
12. Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?
Lucy Pevensie (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) OR Katsa (Graceling)
Lucy! I actually had Katsa as one of my options for this very question last time, but I decided she’d probably be a horrifically restless sleeper. Plus, if I invite Lucy I can force her to walk into every single wardrobe I have, just in case she finds Narnia there.
13. Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?
Harry Potter (Harry Potter) OR Magnus Damora (Falling Kingdoms)
I nearly choked on my tea when I saw what fate had aligned for me here. This question is scandalous, the mental images, dear god. However, I feel like the only appropriate answer (for the sake of not defiling my childhood and respecting Ginny) is Magnus. Now that, is more believable.
14. You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?
Cather Avery (Fangirl) OR Nina Zenik (Crooked Kingdom)
I think that Cather would be the one to ignore my text. I say this because she’d read it, get flustered over the correct way to respond, spend several days losing sleep over it and eventually come to the conclusion that there is no possible way she could answer my text over the phone.
15. You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mum’s been replaced by..who?!
Bitterblue (Bitterblue) OR Simon Spier (Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda)
I certainly hope to find Simon in my kitchen one day. That would make my dreams come true. Bless him, he can cook my eggs any which way he likes. Oh wow, that sounded terrible.
Please anyone do this if you want to – and let me know if you do! But I will single out a few people to join in on the fun:
