It’s Saturday night and I have absolutely zilch going on tonight. (I did have a margarita with my tacos tonight though, so at least I have that going for me.) I’m finding it difficult to keep myself occupied now that I’ve finished writing the book.
A few weeks ago I was tagged by bookishlyrebecca to do the tropes book tag. Thank you Rebecca! I feel like her answers were way better than mine are going to be. 😛
Hopelessly Devoted: Name two characters from separate series that you ship Princess Lira and Alucard Emery
Damsel in Distress: Name a female MC who didn’t need a man to complete her Lila Bard. She’s got a thing going with Kell, but it’s pretty obvious that she doesn’t need a man in her life.
Love At First Sight: Name Your OTP (Full disclosure: I had to Google what “OTP” meant. I’m getting old, aren’t I?) Clary and Simon. I don’t care what anyone says, Clary and Jace are a terrible couple and she should have stayed with Simon.
Mental Illness As A Quirk: Name a book that represented mental illness well Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand. It’s a middle grade book, but it portrays the most accurate representation of depression that I’ve ever read before. (And that’s coming from someone who’s struggled with depressed for 15+ years.)
The Chosen One: Name a main character that did (or almost did) ruin a series for you Quentin from The Magicians. If he’d been less whiny and self-absorbed I might have actually finished the series.
Friends To Lovers: Name a duo that went from friendship goals to relationship goals Ron and Hermione. I still don’t quite understand how that one happened.
Amnesia: Name a book you would forget for one reason or another Like, intentionally? Or accidentally? I’m not sure why I would intentionally choose to forget a book unless it’s one that I didn’t like. In that case I’m going with a handful of the classics I was forced to read in high school and did not enjoy: Tess of the d’Urbervilles, The Scarlet Letter, and The Grapes of Wrath are a few that come to mind.
Bad Boys: Name your favorite villain Eli Ever
Missing Parents or Adults: Name a book that could’ve benefitted from a bit of parental guidance or adult supervision I feel like there are a million YA books that fit this category, yet I’m drawing a blank on every single one of them. Blergh. Blame it on the margarita.
