Hello all! I may have not mentioned this but I’m a big fan of superheroes. I’ve been in love with Marvel since the first Iron Man movie and I watch all of the CW superhero shows like Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. I also have a pretty decently comic book collection that I’d be happy to share with you if you’re interested. In honor of Wonder Woman, I’m going to do this tag that I found on the Coffeeloving Bookoholic‘s blog.
Wonder Woman: Your Favorite Badass Female Book Character
I’m going to name a few here. Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, Annabeth Chase (The Percy Jackson Series), Isabelle Lightwood (The Mortal Instruments), Tally Youngblood (The Uglies Series), Liesel Meminger (The Book Thief), and Tris Prior (The Divergent Series)
Themiscyra: A Book Setting You Want to Escape to
Hogwarts (obviously) and Kings Landing would be pretty awesome. I’d also like to spend some time in Camp Half-Blood
London: An Overhyped Book that let You Down
I was disappointed that I didn’t care for The Clockwork Angel series and I also didn’t care for The Catcher in the Rye.
Steve Trevor: A Book with a Beautiful Cover and Great Story
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller has a gorgeous cover with a gold-leaf helmet on the front and the story is fantastic. (Bonus points for being a Greek Mythology based story). Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also has a lovely cover. The Great Gatsby has classically beautiful cover as well.
Lasso of Truth: A Book You Hated
Real talk: I hated The Circle by Dave Eggers, Allegiant by Veronica Roth, Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyers, and Anthem by Ayn Rand
Wonder Woman’s Shield: A Book So Sad You Needed a Shield
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
No-Man’s Land: A Book you wanted to send through No-Man’s Land to get shot
See the Lasso of Truth tag above.
Ares: A Villain that is Scary, but You can’t seem to Hate
Voldemort is kind of a badass along with the whole crew of Death Eaters. Hannibal Lecter is also a great horror villain. Bonus: Professor Moriarty from the Sherlock Holmes series.
Dr. Poison: A Villain that had no reason to exist
I honestly can’t think of any. Even if the villain wasn’t very great, they still had a purpose.
The Amazons: A Book that You wish has better LGBTQIA+ representation
I mean, a lot of books can fit under this category so I can’t name any one in particular. There is no doubt in my mind, though, that there needs to be more representation.
That’s the end of the tag. I tag everyone who is a fan of Wonder Woman or superheroes in general. Have fun!
