THERE’S A HAMILTON BOOK TAG, CAN YOU HEAR ME SCREAMING?
“What’s your name, man?”
My name is Alexander Hamilton
And there’s a million things I haven’t done
But just you wait, just you wait…
Okay, so let me take it from the top. I’m obsessed with Hamilton, OBSESSED! If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a hip-hop musical by the genius Lin-Manuel Miranda about American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, obviously. I’m so utterly obsessed with it and you can’t have missed it, it was on the Carpool Karaoke and it made the news recently too, so I was pretty sure the bookish community was obsessed as well and after a little research I found this original book tag by maureenkeavy.
The Room Where It Happens: Book world you would put yourself in
Super easy, in the Black Dagger Brotherhood universe or in a more contemporary setting the Mortal Instruments universe, perfect balance between paranormal and normal, or at least as normal as it can be.
The Schuyler Sisters: Underrated Female Character
Isabelle Lightwood from the Mortal Instruments! Between Clary, Jace, Valentine and Alec and Magnus, Izzy rarely gets the recognition she deserves. She’s fiercely independent, wicked smart and such a badass, she’s been a Shadowhunter loooong before Clary entered the picture and Izzy has dealt with a lot of heartbreak, especially from her family. Still, she is loyal and a fighter through and through. I just love her!
My Shot: A character that goes after what they want and doesn’t let anything stop them
My baby Daenerys! She has been through hell, literally. She was a pawn for her brother’s games and now she has her huge dragons, she has her army, she has her ships and she’s going to Westeros so hell yeah!
Stay Alive: A character you wish was still alive
I mean, DUH! It’s Snape. It’s always Snape. Always.
Burn: The most heartbreaking end to a relationship you’ve ever read
Well, I can’t even write this without getting emotional, it’s Daenerys and Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones.
You’ll Be Back: Sassiest villain
Kyon Ensin from the Kricket series. He’s an amazing villain that has a great character development! He’s sassy and smart, not just enough to come up with a mean plan to take over the planet, but actually smart enough to out smart the lead male which is rare for a YA Fantasy. I love him and I love the ending to this series. #TeamKyon
The Reynolds Pamphlet: A book with a twist that you didn’t see coming
Non-stop: A series you marathoned
As in, one series? Ha!
Satisfied: Favorite book with multiple POVs
Very recent one, All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, almost 20+ and it was awesome!
Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story: A book/series you feel like will be remembered throughout history
I mean, Harry Potter, it will be a classic, it already is and I couldn’t be happier!
I won’t tag anyone, feel free to do it and did I mention I love Hamilton? I LOVE HAMILTON!
