Hamilton Book Tag

     The musical, Hamilton, has been my favorite thing for over a year now. I have been utterly obsessed and I even give it credit for me passing my AP History exam. Considering all this, I thought it was about time I do the Hamilton Book Tag! This tag was created by Maureen Keavy.  Also, if you haven't listened to Hamilton yet, One, What are you even doing wit your life? Two, Go listen!

1. The Room Where It Happens: A book world you would put yourself into

   
     The first answer that came to my head was Harry Potter, obviously. But, if I'm trying to be unique I would have to say the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, more specifically, The Night Court, for obvious reasons.

2. The Schuyler Sisters: An Underrated Female Character

   
     Seriously why are all my answers automatically Harry Potter? I recently binge watched all the Harry Potter movies over Winter Break with my sister, so maybe that is why. Its no secret that Luna Lovegood is one of my favorite characters from the series, if not all time.

3. My Shot: A character who goes after what they want and won't let anything stop them

  

     I would have to say Aelin from the Throne of Glass series. She is such a strong and determined character in my opinion.

4. Stay Alive: A character you wish was still alive.

    (spoilers) Leslie from Bridge to Terabithia. This might quite possibly be my first heartbreak via book. Also Dobby.
5. Burn: The most heartbreaking end to a relationship you've ever read

     Me Before you. Nuff said.


6. You'll Be Back; Sassiest Villain

    For some reason, I am drawing blanks for this one?  I guess the Darkling from the Grisha Trilogy.

7. The Reynolds Pamphlet: A book with a twist you didn't see coming

     SPOILERS
      
     When it comes to plot twists We Were Liars is always my answer. I just did not expect that AT ALL.

8. Non-stop: A series you marathoned

    I read the Just One Day series by Gayle Forman back to back because I Just could not bear that cliffhanger!

9. Satisfied: favorite book with multiple POVs

   I absolutely loved Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I was obsessed with the different voices each character had.

10. Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story: A book series you think will be remembered throughout history

    Okay I know you are gonna roll your eyes, but how could I even say anything but Harry Potter? The story will never die. The magic feeling it gives you will ALWAYS live on.




    I hope you enjoyed all these questions. Feel free to do this tag if you want! I will now be posting every Saturday so stay tuned!

                                                                                                                       XO,
                                                                                                                                 Mal
