So I saw this tag that Novels and Nebulas created inspired by The Poppy War and I just had to do it. I loved the first two books and I cannot wait for the final book.
Make sure to link the original tag
Fang Runin – Who’s Your Favourite Anti-Heroine?
I love Rin, she makes the absolute worst decisions sometimes and has done some awful things but I still can’t help but root for her, especially after the end of The Dragon Republic.
Chosen One Schmosen One – What Character Deserves More Spotlight in Your Favourite Series?
Zaynab from The Daevabad Trilogy! I would love to see more of her! She is smart and resourceful and we don’t get to see enough of her. She single-handedly engineers Ali’s return to Daevabad and no one even suspects her!
No Stone Left Unturned – Who’s Your Favourite Fictional Genius?
I love Kaz Brekker, how is he 17 and able to pull off all he does?! The heists and the way he manipulates everything in his favour, leading a crew and running the Dregs. And how much in control he always is, well aside from when Inej is hurt, then he loses his shit.
The Epic Descent – What Makes You Empathise with your Favourite Morally Grey Character?
Eva from Prime Deceptions makes some really bad decisions and has to live with the consequences and despite what she did was awful she spends the whole time trying to work out the best way to try to make up for it as much as she can. She accepts that people might never forgive her and owns her actions. I was rooting for her to be able to try to become a better person and not make these same mistakes again.
Mad Gods and Their Maddening Power – What’s Your Favourite Novel About Gods and Their Powers?
I adore all of Rick Riordan’s books but my favourite is probably the Magnus Chase trilogy, inspired by Norse mythology. It will always hold a special place in my heart because it was one of the first times I saw a hijabi character in a fantasy book who was a badass and unapologetically Muslim.
Immortals and Their Battles – What’s Your Favourite Battle Scene?
The third trial from An Ember in the Ashes is one hell of a battle scene. It is epic and painful and heart wrenching and even though you know it will kill you, you can’t look away. What Elias has to do and how much it destroys him was so incredibly difficult to read.
This Poisonous Beauty – What Character Do You Find as Intriguing as you do Terrifying?
Wrath from Kingdom of the Wicked is intriguing and terrifying at the same time. He is a literal Prince from Hell yet I couldn’t help but be pulled towards him and want to know more about him and his motivations.
Clever Truths and Cleverer Lies – What’s a Book Rife With Political Intrigue that you Enjoyed?
These Violent Delights is full of political intrigue and it drives the story and how Juliette and Roma interact with each other and I loved reading about 1920s Shanghai. There is power struggles from all different sides and it results in deaths of innocent people and Juliette and Roma have to try to find out what is causing it to stop more deaths.
A Trio to Reckon With – Who’s Your Favourite Fictional Trio?
I adore Percy, Annabeth and Grover in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I loved reading about their adventures and seeing them grow in each book. I loved how sassy they were and their banter and how much they cared for and supported each other.
So that’s the end of the tag! Everyone is welcome to do the tag!
