Hello my fellow little munchkins! How are you all doing? I am doing pretty well. Since I have been doing online schooling and then finished high school, I have had more time to do well, everything.
However, I keep on reading or talking to people or spending all my time on Bookstagram so I haven’t really spent that much time drafting up posts or doing anything blog related. I however, am trying to get back into the pace of things and hope to get more blog posts of all kinds back up on here.
The Little Mermaid:
A character who is out of their element (a fish out of water)
Peeta in The Hunger Games, and the reason as to why would be because he completely did not know how to fight especially within the first book and movie. I mean all he could do in the first book would was paint himself. I mean yes that is a good technique but at one point or another he needed to fight for himself like Katniss would be doing.
Another character who was also highly out of their element would be America from The Selection and the reason why was because she didn’t “want to be like other girls” but honestly that sentence makes her even more sterotypical than one of those girls. But she was definitely out of her own personal comfort zone through not only the first book but the whole series and that is something that we should definitely take into mind about her character.
A character who goes through a major transformation
I think that almost every character from any book goes through a transformation whether it is good or bad. So in a general answer I think that everyone does. But if I want to be more specific I would choose Percy Jackson, Kaz Brekker, and Warner from The Shatter Me series.
The reason why I choose Percy Jackson would be because he grew a little more street and book smart so he went through that whole transformation but he also went through the transformation of going from an Adolescent to a Teenager which is a huge change that I think everyone can agree on.
Kaz Brekker went through his transformation a little less compared to everyone else as he was able to let people in which is a huge transformation but it is only once compared to the others who went through the same amount or more.
Whereas Warner from the Shatter Me series grew at least my own opinion and one of the clearest ways you could see that is he went from being almost like a villain in the beginning of the series to one of the main characters who is boarder line morally grey/ hero.
A book with an eclectic cast of characters
There is so many books with an eclectic cast of characters and I think that this is a really hard question to answer. However, I think one that everyone kinda known in general knows about the Percy Jackson and Heros of the Olympus book series. Some of the characters from both sets of the cast would be Leo Valdez, Nico De Angelo, Rachel (who by the way is one of my favorite characters in the world), Annabeth, Luke, Hazel, and literally so many more characters within this beautiful cast that some of use grew up with.
A book that put you to sleep
Not many books put me to sleep, but one book that really just made me have to set it down would be the Zenith. If you don’t know it already it was one book that I could literally die on the hill of hating it. If you ever want to know why check out the review for it HERE.
The Lion King:
A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
UMMMMM LIKE LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. HAVE YOU EVER MET A CHARACTER WHO HASN’T GONE THROUGH. SO what about I go through series of characters who went through traumatic experiences during their childhood.
Firstly, lets start of with The Hunger Games, that is one of the worst traumatic experiences for a young or old person. Another would be the Darkest Minds, Shatter Me, Percy Jackson, Divergent and about 454738243572 other series.
Beauty and the Beast:
A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful
That is literally such an easy question for me to answer. Of course when I first read this question I thought of Beauty and The Beast and all of the retellings so because of that my mind went to all the books based on.
It was a real tie between ACOMAF where Rhysand is there and I love him with all of my heart, but man was the book big. But there are no complaints coming from me because the more words and plot within that world the better for me. Another that I thought about was A Curse So Dark and Lonely and those books are long as well. But nothing can really beat the large book known as WAR AND PEACE.
A character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
The only book that came to mind instantly for this question would be Sea Witch Rising. The reason as to why would be because of how its a retelling on the little mermaid in an essence and one of the characters wishes for one thing and it leads to a multitude of reactions that increased the plot within the story. I personally think that this book would be perfect for the question.
A character who pretends to be someone they’re not
I think a lot of characters do this but at the same time I don’t. I think on a basic level each character changes themselves to fit the story and the other characters but they are also still true to theirselves so I really can’t think of anyone in particular for this specific question, which I apologize for.
A book with characters you wish would come to life
ALL OF THEM? okay I may be joking, I really wouldn’t want ALL of the bookish characters to come to life because then I would be a little scared. However, if I only have to pick one bookish world where I would want the characters to come to life it would be The Infernal Devices. I love each and every one of the characters and since the book was based so long ago they would really have a good time changing to fit the times. Of course that is excluding a couple characters 😉
Your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
I AHVE SO DARN FREAKING MANY. But of course half of me wants to go with the Darkling but the larger part of me chooses Kaz more than anything else because he is a perfect, closer to my age and would be amazing as a villain even though he is more morally grey than anything.
