The Brooklyn Nine Nine Book Tag

Hey!

After a unintended but much needed break from blogging I’m back with one of my favourite tags yet. I was tagged by the wonderful Amiee to do the Brooklyn Nine Nine tag and I was very excited to finally write this post, so without further ado let’s get to the questions!

Jake Peralta – A character who lives to be the hero

I chose Jace from The Mortal Instruments for this one. I have only read the first two books so far but from what I know of Jace he is very egotistical and seems to live to save the day.

Amy Santiago – A character that empowers you

I think that Audrey Rose from Stalking Jack the Ripper is so empowering because she defies stereotypes of Victorian women and goes after her dream job even though it is not thought to be suitable for a woman at the time.

Captain Holt – An amazing diverse character character that breaks stereotypes

I believe that Maya from Love, Hate and Other Filters fits this category as she is a diverse character that goes through a lot of troubles which involve stereotypes of her ethnicity.

Rosa Diaz – A bad-ass female character you’d hate to mess with

Honestly, I would hate to anger Lila from A Darker Shade of Magic. She is a force to be reckoned with.

Charles Boyle – An awkward, but oh-so-lovable character

Clark from The Unexpected Everything was so awkward in the beginning of the book but I absolutely loved this character from the start

Terry Jeffords – The big guy that looks tough with a soft heart

I haven’t read past Scarlet in The Lunar Chronicles, but from what I’ve read I believe Wolf fits this description.

Gina Linetti – A book or series on your TBR that has a massive fanbase

I have chosen Uprooted by Naomi Novik for this one as I don’t think I have heard a single bad thing about this novel. I only ever hear massive praises for this book and I really need to pick it up!

Scully & Hitchcock – An iconic fictional duo

I believe that Audrey Rose & Thomas Creswell from Stalking Jack the Ripper fit this description because they work so well together and compliment eachother so well professionally.

Adrian Pimento – A loose canon of a character

I definitely think that Alice from The Hazel Wood fits this description as she is a character who is very impulsive and angry at times. This character is very unpredictable and does some very dangerous things on a whim.

The Vulture – An antagonist that steals the show

Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events absolutely steals the show from the children at times with his funny remarks and very entertaining characterisation.

The Pontiac Bandit – The antagonist you can’t help but love

I have only read the first book from the Shades of Magic series but I loved Holland as an antagonist as he seemed so conflicted and genuinely remorseful of some of the things he had done.

 

Let me know who your favourite Brooklyn Nine Nine character is in the comments!

The Disney Book Tag

This tag was created by Katytastic on Youtube back in 2015. I had completely forgotten that this tag existed until now but I am very happy it does exist because I love Disney and I love books, making this the perfect tag.

The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a ‘fish out of water’.

royals cover

I chose Daisy from Royals by Rachel Hawkins for this one. Daisy was thrown into a royal life of which was so different from her own life. Everything about Daisy’s new life was different from her old one from the way that she had to act around others to her mode of transport.

Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation.

HP

The only answer I could think of for this was Harry, Ron and Hermione from the Harry Potter series. These characters experience so much development as they grow up throughout the series that they are almost completely different people by the final book than they were in the first book.

Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters.

ACOMAF

I love Rhysand and his friends! They are all so different which is what makes them such a great group. The characterisations contrasted and complemented each other perfectly.

Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep.

The Moonstone

I had to read The Moonstone for college and it bored me soooo much. I couldn’t connect or relate to any of the characters and, being half Indian, I didn’t enjoy the way in which Wilkie Collins portrayed the Indian Brahmins.

The Lion King – a character that had something traumatic happen to them in childhood.

Starfish

I can’t say what happens as it would spoil this book. Kiko has something very traumatic happen to her in Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. This book was very emotional, heartbreaking but beautiful.

Beauty and the Beast – a beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful.

ACOWAR

The Book Thief

Both The Book Thief and A Court of Wings and Ruin intimidated me very much with their length but once I started reading them I ended up absolutely flying through them and they’ve ended up being some of my favourite books.

Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or for worse.

Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not.

Cinder

I’m putting Cinder for both Aladdin and Mulan because in this Cinderella retelling Cinder so desperately wishes to be away from her horrible step mother. This is what pushes her to pretend that she is something that she is not and ends up getting her into a terrible situation.

Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

After watching the new Netflix movie, I just want these characters to come to life even more please.

Disney Descendants – your favourite villain or morally ambiguous character.

city of bones

I have always loved Valentine from The Mortal Instruments as a villain because no matter how awful he is, he truly believes that what he is doing is the right thing. This makes him such a complex character to me.

 

Thanks for reading!
