Today’s Topic: Wicked Book Tag
Found On: What The Hell Is She Reading
I’m super excited to do this tag, since I love this musical! I’ve never seen it live, but I love singing along to all the songs on the soundtrack. Plus Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenowith are amazing in their roles as Elphaba and Glinda!
Let’s get started!
1. No One Mourns The Wicked – a character who no one would feel bad if they died.
The Mayor in the Chaos Walking series. I just finished book two and the Mayor becomes an even more formidable foe than before. That man is pure evil and I hope he gets his comeuppance in the final novel.
2. Dear Old Shiz – a book set in college or university.
Set in a college, and is a great story about being yourself and dealing with a huge life transition.
3. The Wizard and I – a book that gives you hope.
4. What Is This Feeling? – a book you loathed.
This novel was a summer reading assignment before I entered high school. Needless to say, it was one of the most driest, boring books I have ever read.
5. Something Bad – a book where you just knew something bad was going to happen but didn’t know what.
This book started out with a bang and feature a this super dysfunctional family at the center of the story. There is tension and suspense throughout the story and you know something big will happen, but what is it?
6. Dancing Through Life – a carefree, light book.
Cute love story where two random people meet on an airplane and instantly share a connection.
7. Popular – a book that needs more recognition.
I read this last year and I really enjoyed this novel. It’s a clever and thrilling twist on the Little Red Riding Rood story.
8. I’m Not That Girl – a book with heart-break.
Two people reconnect after a long time and decide to get married at the place they first meet. But sometimes there’s trouble in paradise.
9. One Short Day – a book set in a country or city you’ve always wanted to visit.
Ever since I’ve been interested in and studied Japanese language and culture it has become one of my top destinations to visit. I like how this story mixes fantasy elements in a modern-day Japan.
10. A Sentimental Man – a character that’s trying to do good but is an antagonist.
Thiago, because he thinks he bringing justice his people (chimera), but ends up continuing the centuries long warfare between the angels and chimera. Granted, I understand his intentions, but the guy/creature is crazy!
11. Defying Gravity – a character that basically says fuck the world I’m doing my own things.
Rose Hathaway, because she fights for what she believes in. Enough said (read the series).
12. Thank Goodness – a special and happy event in the midst of a shitstorm within the book.
There are many sweet, little special moments in this series. Alana and Marko, try to do their best to take care of their daughter Hazel, while they’re on the run. Even in the midst of chaos in a galactic war they manage to make it work somehow.
13. Wonderful – a character who’s full of themselves.
Dorothy, is no longer the sweet little girl from Kansas that we all know and love in this novel. She is a sinister queen and full of herself, thinking she will reign over Oz forever.
14. As Long As Your Mine – a scene from a book where your OTP couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
Jamie and Claire make such a good couple novel in this series, and this book has lots of little romantic parts that are just sweet. I can’t pick just one scene.
15. No Good Deed – a character who is truly good but keeps fucking up and hates themselves for it.
Katsa and Fire! They are good people who keep pushing others away from them, and are afraid to reach out. They don’t really mess up per say, but I think it’s rather they feel trapped and misunderstood by others. When both women travel on these journeys and overcome obstacles they finally find themselves.
16. March of the Witch Hunters – a book with a call to action.
Americanah brings up a discussion through its story to really discuss the issue race with others rather than trying to avoid it. I think it’s a good way to get people talking.
17. For Good – a book that has changed me for good.
I can’t really think of one. 🙁
18. Finale “Wicked” – favorite book series finale.
I just finished this series recently and it’s got to be one of my favorite series finales because everything felt resolved and came full circle with all the main characters of the series. Not too many series out there in the book universe end very well.
And those are my answers! Feel free to participate by creating your own post or leave your thoughts in the comments below!
