Today I’m bringing you The Halsey Book Tag originally created by the girls over at Paper Riot! I love love love Halsey’s music. It has such a powerful, ethereal quality to it and I can listen to it on repeat without getting bored. Now let’s get to those song tracks and answers!
Castle: Favorite Queen
Let’s see… Queen Kelsea Raleigh from The Queen of the Tearling. She gets thrust into power at a young age and has to piece her country back together again with her life being threatened from all sides.
Hold Me Down: A Series You Just Can’t Seem To Quit, No Matter How Hard You Try
Why would I ever want to quit a series? I guess I’ll go with Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first book but still want to try the rest of the series. Problem is I started Rebel Spring but haven’t got back into it.
New Americana: Fictional Friend Group You’d Want To Be Your Fight The Apocalypse Squad
Without a doubt my Six of Crows crew! Widely versatile and willing to do what it takes to survive, I’m sure they’re the best for the job.
Drive: A Couple That Needs To Communicate Better
While this song gives me all the Blue/Gansey feels I’m actually picking Kestrel and Arin from The Winner’s Trilogy. They suffered so much for not being honest with one another.
Hurricane: Favorite Standalone
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore: This book was a complete and utter surprise last year and it was a phenomenal read. The perfect mix of magical realism and diversity.
Roman Holiday: Cutest Contemporary Couple
I don’t read enough contemporary but I gotta give it to Cath and Levi from Fangirl. They’re freaking adorable!
Ghost: Most Tragic Break-Up
I refuse to spoil anything…
Colors: One of Your Faves Who Hurts You A Lot Cuz They Make Terrible Decisions
I feel like this sums up every character I love. How do I even choose?
Strange Love: Character A Lot Of People Don’t Get But You Absolutely Love
I know a ton of people don’t like Mal from The Grisha Trilogy but I love him to death.
Coming Down: Best Sexy Times Scene
Anything from Prince’s Gambit or King’s Rising. Plus that scene in A Court of Thorns and Roses…
Haunting: A Book Or Character You’re Still Thinking About
Definitely Victoria Schwab’s A Gathering of Shadows and the wondrous Lila Bard! It’s been two months and I still cannot get over this book. Out of this world amazing and Lila’s character may be my fave ever.
Gasoline: Favorite (Self-)Destructive Character
Adelina Amouteru from Marie Lu’s Young Elite series fits this perfectly. She ends up ruining everything she built and spirals into a path of continuing destruction. What a mess!
Control: Best Villain
Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter is the absolute worst. She’s just a horrible person and thinks what she is doing is right. I mean, she’s worse than Voldemort for crying out loud!
Young God: Characters That Secretly Worship Each Other
Blue and my Raven Boys! Honestly they are all a little in love with each other and their friendships just give me all the feels!
Walk The Line: Best Retelling/Reworking
Renee Ahdieh’s The Wrath & the Dawn was such a beautiful retelling of 1,001 Nights filled with luscious detail and outstanding characters.
