Fight Like a YA Girl Book Tag

Be prepared for a lot of tips on strong female leads…

So I was not tagged by The Book Prophet to match YA girls to some descriptions, but I saw her do it and really want to do it. I just really hope I’ve read enough YA to have enough characters… Tend to read everything from children’s fantasy to adult fantasy so it might be a challenge. Let’s see how it goes!

  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Mention the creator Krysti at YA and Wine
  • Match at least one YA girl with each of the themes below
  • Tag as many people as you’d like!

It is so important for everyone to see examples of strong women in books, television, and movies. There are so many ways in which women exhibit strength, so this tag is meant to be a celebration of some those strengths.

Warrior Girls

Raisa ana’Marianna from The Seven Realms series and Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series are definitely two fighters you cannot not mention.

Girls Who Fight With Their Mind

Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series and Denna (Dianne, Dinnah… Whatever she wants to call herself) from The Name of the Wind. Luna doesn’t care about what others think and uses her peculiar mind to get through basically everything. Denna is using her wits to get what she needs from the world, but it isn’t easy.

Mid-Year Freak Out 2017

I did this last year and it feels like I should do it again, make it an annual thing 🙂 So let’s take a look at what I’ve read this far this year. It feels good, my Goodreads goal is 40 books and I’ve gone through 23 already. So no stress on that point.

Best book I’ve read so far in 2017

words of radiance

Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive #2) by Brandon Sanderson. This book blew my mind and I’m desperate for the third book! Sadly it hasn’t come out yet. What Sanderson has done with this book and this world is beyond anything I’ve previously read. This series will be a masterpiece that deserves to stand beside Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. If you’re not intimidated by big books and big stories, pick this up as soon as possible. If you are intimidated, give it a try anyway, you won’t regret it.

Best sequel I’ve read so far in 2017

The Crimson Campaign

The Crimson Campaign (The Powder Mage Trilogy #2) by Brian McClellan. I went into this series not knowing what to expect, and I had my mind blown. When I got to the second book I couldn’t help but feel amazed, a second book that was even better than the first one? That shouldn’t happen, it’s against the natural law (in most cases is seems like that anyway).

The setting and the characters in this trilogy are well written and the story drags you in and won’t leave you alone. Didn’t expect to like this as much as I did. The audiobook narration is great so that is definitely an option if you don’t have the time to sit down and read.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year

The High School Book Tag

I was tagged by Jasmine @ How Useful It Is so long ago it is embarrassing! May 15… Now it is July 6th. I am so sorry for this taking so long, but thank you Jasmine so much for tagging me! Now I’m finally getting to it and I hope you (and everyone else) will enjoy my answers 🙂

The rules:
  • Thank the creators: Namitha @ Teen Memoir and Jasmine @ How Useful It Is, THANK YOU!
  • Answer the questions.
  • Add pictures! (If you want to)
  • Tag (about) 5 people.

A+ on the test
A book or character that makes you smile?

How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse

Should I go for the obvious one? No, I think I’ll try to be more creative than that. So instead I chose How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse (How to Train Your Dragon #4) by Cressida Cowell. This one makes me smile just thinking of the Swedish title Hur du stjäl en potatis, which loosely translates to How you steal a potato.

Sports team
A fictional family that you want to be a part of?

The Weasley Family

This time I cannot go for anything else than Harry Potter related, the Weasly family. Who wouldn’t love to be part of this amazing and loving family?

Class President
A book that tries to make a difference?

The Emoji Book Tag

So I was tagged by Blame it on Chocolate a month ago, but as I’ve said before, better late than never 😀 You’re supposed to choose five emoji that you either like or use frequently, and match them with books. Sounds very easy to me but let’s see how it goes!

Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes on Apple iOS 10.2

The grinning emoji

This is definitely one of my favourite and most used emoji. It is just so happy! So I’ll chose one of the books that has made me laugh the most – How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell.

The Playlist Shuffle Tag

So I was tagged by Avi @ Panic at the Bookstore quite some time ago now (almost a month!), and now I’m finally doing this! Jeez, why do all the lecturers decide on group works at the same time just before summer is coming? Anyway, thank you so much Avi for tagging me^^ Let’s do this!

The rules:
  • Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating).
  • Tag 10 others to do it as well.

I will also put a book under each track, since this is a book blog and I feel like it^^ But what playlist should I chose? The one with my favourites probably – Best of the Best.
