Book Tag: The Avengers

Hi all!

We're back with book tags on the 20th again (finally) and I figured since my post the other day was all about Marvel, what better way to get started again than with the Avengers Book Tag? I found the tag on this blog here, though I have no idea who originally created it.

Iron Man / Tony Stark: a book that made you laugh out loud
Weirdly, I don't really laugh in books. So this was super tough! I think I'll choose The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater though, as they can have some pretty snarky lines in those books that make me giggle.

Captain America / Steve Rogers: a book that sends a positive message
This is an extremely difficult question - I can't really think of a book that specifically sends a positive message? I think I'll just go the cliche route and say Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling.

Black Widow / Natasha Romanov: a book with a kick butt female protagonist
I really love that I struggled with this question - I think it's so so important that we have strong female characters for us to look towards and admire. All the books I have mentioned after this question have a kick butt female in them, and they're all kick butt for different reasons, but I think I will go with Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

Hawkeye / Clint Barton: an underrated book you wish more people would pay attention to
Too many to count! I'm going to go with Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin and Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers.

Hulk / Bruce Banner: a book that made you incredibly angry
It didn't make me incredibly angry, per se, but I was ridiculously frustrated while reading Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder because it was nowhere near the quality that the first book had been.

Thor: a book with a character who's strength you admired
There can be no other answer for this but Lina in Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys. She endured incredible hardships during World War II as only a young girl, and yet she still persevered. This was an incredible touching story, but also incredibly motivating for the sheer strength Lina showed throughout the book. Side note: I believe this is being made into a movie!!

Loki: a book with a twist or surprise which tricked you
I feel like I've ranted about this a lot, and I will continue to rant until the dawn of time because it tore my heart to pieces. But Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard 110% had me fooled and I will never forgive. (If anyone caught my rant the other day about judging books because of other books, this one gets it a lot too which is so frustrating because I love it).

I hope you enjoyed today's tag, and I'll be back next month with a new one!
