Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

So first off, exams are finally over for the both of us and WE’RE BACK. I thought I’d recommence blogging with a really cool book tag I spotted over at tildareads because it’s short and ranty, which pretty much sums up my person (if anyone knows whom this tag traces back to, please let me know, so I can give credit). I love gushing about my favourite reads with others, but sometimes I also like to focus on the books I didn’t like, especially when I feel like the black sheep. Feel free to join in and either do the tag or comment with some of your own suggestions to these questions! 🙂

Characterising your co-blogger!

Last year, a friend of ours created a tag wherein she described herself in five literary characters (unfortunately her blog is no longer live). We loved the idea but found it difficult (and a little odd) to describe ourselves in that way. But then we came up with the idea to describe each other as friends and co-bloggers instead. Albeit presenting quite a challenge, describing and characterising each other was heaps of fun and strengthened our friendship, too. We each picked 5 literary characters for the characterisation, the condition being that these characters shared one or more significant personality trait(s) with the co-blogger. Below, you will find the character compared to the person, which book the character appears in, and a comparison of characteristics. We hope you have as much fun reading this – while slowly getting to know us better through the lenses of our significant others – as we had creating this post! 🙂

2016 Character Awards #BookTag

The 2016 Character Awards is a book tag created by Cait over at Paper Fury, an Aussie book blog we adore to bits. If you’re missing some colour in your life, please behold her colour explosions which she refers to as her bookstagram shots. Anyway, I decided to participate in her tag nominating the best characters of books we’ve read in 2016. Please also go check out her hilarious post and, if you run a blog, consider joining these informal book awards and maybe bring some underrated characters to our attention which have been looked over (yes, this is a stabby sideswipe at the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards. So sue me). Because time is running out like sand between my fingers, I’ve decided to copy an assorted collection of Cait’s award categories instead of the 20 she has originally set up (I mean, honestly, which average human being can keep up with this amount of blogging, reading, reviewing, and writing? Nina out).

Obviously, this post is NOT entirely spoiler-free for the mentioned books because of reasons. If you see a cover of a book you haven’t read and would not like to be previously spoiled for (though people’s importunate GR status updates might have already taken care of that), then either read on or skip this post altogether. Consider yourself warned, folks.
