Happy February! I hope you had a wonderful January and that February is just as awesome, if not more awesome! This time, I’m participating in the “Beauty and the Beast” Book Tag! It was created by Du Livre, and I stumbled across this on the Dreamland Book Blog. I figured, it’s February, which means romance, and “Beauty and the Beast” is romance, so it was good timing for me to write up this post! Now, onto the tag!
- A villain you can’t help but love!
Angel Islington, Mr. Vandermar and Mr. Coup from Neil Gaiman’s “Neverwhere.” Yes, I’m aware these are three villains, not one, but technically Angel is the main villain with Vandermar and Coup being extensions of him, so I’m counting all three of them in this. I liked their snappy dialogue, which made them hilarious to read but also menacing at the same time.
- Your OTP
Yamada and Kase from the “Kase-San and…” series by Hiromi Takashima. I think Yamada and Kase have great chemistry together in the series, and they’re also quite a healthy pairing. They get into their misunderstandings and conflicts, but they do hash it out with each other afterwards and get back on the same page with each other as well.
- A character that’s destined for bigger things
This could count for many characters I’ve read in many books, but one of them was definitely Adelina from “The Young Elites” by Marie Lu. She did a lot of big things, and I won’t elaborate on what because I don’t want to spoil the entire trilogy Adelina is featured in, but she did a lot.
- A book that makes you hungry
Surprisingly, not a lot of books I read focus on the characters eating, which concerns me slightly. However, Satoshi Wagahara’s “The Devil is a Part-Timer!” series does have our main protagonist Maou working at MgRonalds (basically their version of a McDonalds), so this is as close as it gets. The first couple of books in the series also center somewhat on Maou working his way up the ranks in MgRonalds, and he’s incredibly dedicated to the work he does there. Part of me hopes that future books in the series will have him come back to that plotline again, because it was that fun to read (and definitely made me hungry for some fast food)!
- Opposites attract
“Defy The Stars” by Claudia Gray has two opposites in the form of Noemi (a human) and Abel (a humanoid android) that, despite everything and anything opposing them, both internal and external, end up falling in love. They were fabulous to read and I recently found out that there is a third book in this series (there’s a sequel tot his book called “Defy the Worlds”), so I hope to get my hands on it soon and read more of these two!
These are all my responses for the “Beauty and the Beast” Book Tag! As for who I’m tagging, if you happen to be a book review blog reading this post, then I automatically tag you to do this next!
