Book Review: The Bird and The Blade

I really enjoyed this but the writing was so crappy I had to overlook all the things I enjoyed in the book and give it 3 stars

Things I liked:

  • The setting, it was atmospheric and just perfect.
  • The relationship between Timur and Jinghua
  • The premise, I thought it was unique and different from many other YA even though it had it’s fair share of YA tropes.
  • The pacing because it’s not exactly fast but it wasn’t slow either which i really liked and was perfect for my mood when i was reading this.
  • The Muslim rep.
  • The romance.
  • The ending, even though it was tragic, it was bravely done.
  • The main character not being inexplicably stupid like million other YA female protagonists.
  • The characters not being very cliche.
  • The amount of Mongolian history.
  • The riddles.
  • The badass princess.
  • And me being able to read this in 2 hours.

Things I didn’t like:

  • The writing.
  • The very crappy very juvenile writing.
  • Jinghua’s brother being a pain in the ass.
  • The execution part giving me nightmares.
  • The backstory.
  • Having to read chapters before coming back to the present and answers to ridddles.
  • The princess on the run trope.
  • The all perfect Khalaf.
  • The amount of poetry.
  • The repetition of said poetry.
  • Oh, and the writing.

Sorting books into Hogwarts Houses

So I do this kind of thing on my Ipad notes and in my notebook all the time just to pass time and because I like to sort things and put them in “box” all the fucking (this is censor free zone, so bear with it) time and I saw Christine ( Polandbananasbooks ) do it recently on her YouTube channel and I i should do it too because 1. I love doing this. 2. I think i can do this shit pretty quickly maybe in ten minutes, so hear i am doing it (that was pretty dumb). So, I let Goodreads pick the books since i thought that would be a fun challenge so i just went to my “read” shelf and sorted it to random and picked the first twenty (i believe) books (that’s a lie since one of the book i read years ago and i don’t even remember what it was and let’s be real i cannot pick a nonfiction heaven forbid) Okay so let’s sort these shit (oh, sorry books).

Feminist books recommendations!!!

read’em and love’em. i consider myself a huge feminist and since this is the Women’s History Month, i thought about doing a very feminist and a very bookish post so here it is tada! So i realized that i don’t read that many feminist novels (that is purely accidental and not intentional at ALL) but here are a few that i read (i read more but these are my faves) and really enjoyed it in fact some of these are my all time faves. so without further ado let’s get to it.

1. Summer of Salt

I read this one in January for a certain readathon and i really enjoyed it. so this not necessarily heavy on feminism but it does deal with it here and there and it also deals with rape so trigger warning for that and there a good sister relationship and a f/f romance which are two of my favorite things to see in a book and the writing is phenomenal and i would recommend this book to everyone i know if that’s possible and besides look at that cover isn’t it absolutely stunning?

2. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

It truly delights me every single time i have to talk about this beautiful, stunning, precious book. this is without question one of the most raw and realistic book I’ve read and it is pretty heavy on the feminist side as well . Evelyn is a hardcore badass feminist and she had to deal with her fair share of sexist bastards but she didn’t let that bother instead she used that to motivate her and when climbed the top, she spat on their stunned sexist faces.

3. Sawkill Girls

This is one of the most underrated book of last year and that fact annoys the duck (stupid auto correct) out of me. Not only does this book deal with some serious feminism but it also features a great f/f romance and asexual and biromantic (we rarely get that in YA) representation and a fat main character and it doesn’t focus on the fact that she is fat and that writing is GORGEOUS, better than the author’s previous book Furyborn (which is also great and underrated), so read this book and make it popular.

4. All the Rage

This book is an under hyped book written by the author who wrote Sadie and not to mention the author is an ace feminist and I believe all her books are very feminist and wonderful but I read this because the title basically sums up my life but whatever the book is great and important and exactly what the society needs and I personally think everyone should read it but sadly it’s very under hyped and not many people knows about it but I would like that to change, this book deserves to shine.

5. The Nowhere Girls

I’m currently reading and loving this book, it’s magnificent like that cover suggest and not only is it feminist as fuck (I would say the most feminist book in this very sophisticated list) plus there’s a gorgeous brown queer main character and even a more gorgeous f/f romance and a autistic main character with anxiety and a main character who is fat in a which the focus is not about the character body and this writing amazing and the message it delivers is very important and utterly raw and
poignant and it delivers it in a very realistic way but the sad fact is this book is not getting the attention it deserves.

6. Bygone Badass Broads

This book is the epitome of feminism. It follows 52 forgotten badass and diverse long gone women and the things they did that changed the world in one way or another and it’s awesome!!! I loved learning about these ladies and their struggles and it’s very sad their forgotten and literally wiped clean from the history and almost no one remembers most of them like they deserve more light.

7. Pretty Girls

This was the last book I read last year and it was a wild ride, probably the graphic and explicit book I’ve ever read. I had to pause reading it most of the time because of how graphic some of the scenes are but the book was very gripping that I just couldn’t stop and it really have chills and made me think. This was very straightforward and right-to-the-point the author didn’t try to hide anything, she made is simple and real and I very much appreciated that but it was a gruesome that’s my only complain about but the rest of the book was great even though most of the parts were triggering.

8. Spinning Silver

This is one of my absolute favorite book ever and it follows three badass ambitious ladies and the obstacles they overcome and there’s Jewish rep and there fae and the setting is Russian based!!! Do I need to convince you more? Do I?

9. The Nightingale

This is one of the most popular (if not the most popular) book set during the World War 2 and it’s popular for a good reason. It’s mainly about women during that time and how they contributed to the war, It mainly follows two sisters who are both strong in their own unique and individual ways and it’s certainly not a cheesy romantic war story like most of the WW2 books about women tends to be and it’s simply beautiful and mesmerizing and it’s my favorite (number 1 favorite) book of all time I love this book more than I love almost anything.

10. Girls of Paper and Fire

This book was beautiful, the descriptions were so rich I could see everything so vividly inside my head and the romance was everything I hoped for and it’s feminist as fuck, one of the best book I’ve read.

That was a pretty stupid list but whatever and it took me a really long time to type because stupid wordpress decided to delete everything i was typing.

Hamilton book tag

Dadadadadada

I know I haven’t posted in a while, like I didn’t post for a whole month but that’s not because I didn’t want to, it’s because I was unexpectedly busy and we had Wifi problem due to the whether conditions. Since I still have wifi problems and I am using data to post this, I decided to make a picture less blog, so I’m not doing tbrs or wrap up but a tag which is always a lot more fun (obviously).

Since this is the Hamilton tag I am going to be talking a bit about Hamilton and my obsession with it. So Hamilton is an American musical focusing on the life of Alexander Hamilton and a bit on the American revolution. I haven’t seen the musical and I am not American but I did listen to the soundtrack non-stop (pun intended) and I am literally obsessed with it, it’s like my favorite album ever (which I think is a bit ironic) but whatever I love Hamilton, BOOKS and Internet and this tag contains Hamilton, BOOKS and Internet. So I am very excited to do this and I will be adding more songs from Hamilton to the tag.

This tag is created by Maureen Keevy from BookTube but I am adding a few more songs to it because I think they are fitting to the tag.

1. Room where it happened.
A book world you’d like to live in.

I would’ve chose either Kettardam or Throne of Glass world but after I thinking about it, I decided living in either of those worlds would suck. So I would rather live in the Shadowhunter world which is basically a magical modern world, so I can have both magic and technology and BOOKS.

2.The Schuyler Sisters: Underrated Female Character

For this I am going with Isabelle and Vianne Rossignol from my absolute favorite book The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah, they are both strong and fierce in their on unique ways but no one ever talks about them and Isabelle deserves more love.

3.  My Shot: A character who would do anything to get what they want

Evelyn is that you? Evelyn mykween Hugo, that’s the most obvious choice because Evelyn is a character who would do anything to get what she wants and she won’t let anything or anyone stand in her way. She is my role model because of that.

4. Stay Alive: A character you wish was still alive [warn for spoilers!]

Tric tric tric tric Tric.

5. Burn: The most heartbreaking end to a relationship you’ve ever read

Chaol and Celaena, I am watching their relationship burn. Crown of Midnight still hurts my heart.

6. You’ll Be Back: Sassiest villain

No YA villian ever

7. The Reynolds Pamphlet – A book with a twist that you didn’t see coming

I’m torn between choosing Godsgrave and Language of Thorns for this one. Imma go ahead and choose both. The twists in LoT was amazing and left me breathless and the twists Godsgrave had a pretty similar effect.

8. Non-stop: A series you marathoned

I haven’t marothoned a series non-stop in ages, the last book series I marathoned non-stop was Shatter Me series last (2018) January. Those were the first books I read that year and I read them in 3 days and loved the eff out of them too.

9. Satisfied: Favorite book with multiple POVs

All of my favorite books have multiple POVs, so how the hell am I supposed to choosing?

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

Since everybody and their momma’s choosing Harry potter, I’m going to choose my new baby The Hate U Give aka one of the best book EVER and it’s definitely going to be a future classic and it deserves all the praise it gets and more.

11. Helpless: A relationship you were pulling for from the very start

My girl Inej and Kaz from Six of My babies. I shipped them from the moment I saw them and I will continue to ship them for the rest of my days.

12. Ten Duel Commandments: Favorite fight scene

Every single fight scenes from Throne of Glass series. Every single one of them.

13. Say No To This: Guilty pleasure read

Sometimes I still read Dairy of The Wimpy kid, I don’t feel ashamed about it but that’s as close to guilty pleasure I get.

14. What Comes Next: A series you wish had more books

Throne of Glass series Duh

15. Right Hand Man – Favorite BROTP

JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN
JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN
JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN JESPER AND WYLAN

16. What’d I Miss: A book or series you were late to start

The Shadowhunter Chronicles, I’m finally making my way through it.

The questions I added…..

17. Blow as all away: A book that blew your mind

Vengeful by V.E Schwab, while I did I enjoy Vicious I didn’t love it as much as I loved Vengeful that book literally blew my mind and left breathless and gasping for air (okay, that was very dramatic).

18. Wait for it: Most anticipating release

Defy Me. Because I need to know what happened like right now.

19. It’s quiet uptown: An underhyped book

Before I let go. That book is gold (or I have a bad reading taste but whatever) and I think everybody should read it. Even though the few people (except me, of course) who read it didn’t really like.

20. Take a break: A book nobody shut up about

Harry Potter, did you hear about that book?.


So that took me too long to write because hello my middle name is lazy. But I am going to (try) post more.

PS: Sorry If there’s typos but I cannot bother to correct them because as I said my middle name is lazy

PS: Now our Wifi is completely fine but I wrote that intro a month ago and I cannot bother to change that because need I remind you again that my middle name is lazy?

Year of the Asian reading challenge #YARC2019

So I decided to participate in Year of the Asian reading challenge hosted by The Quiet Pond, Sprinkles of DreamsVicky Who Reads, and Shut up Shealea. If you are interested in joining go to this page.

I am Asian and I love reading Asian books and this will be my progress tracker for the challenge and I will update it throughout the year.

This is the Giant panda badge and that means i will have to read 31 to 40 books and I think I can do that and I am very excited about this challenge.

This is my Goodreads shelf for the challenge https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/71143198-kenzah-faruq?shelf=yarc-2019&view=covers

January

So the prompt for January was family “For January, let’s explore the idea of family — both the good and the bad. Read a book written by an Asian author that features strong family themes, whether it’s sibling or multi-generational.” and I read American Panda for that challenge and I really enjoyed it.

1. American Panda by Gloria Chao  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.75

I loved this book so much, it’s probably my favorite contemporary book ever and I related so hard with main character, this was such a treat. I cannot recommend this enough. RTC.

2. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

GIVE ME A SEQUEL OR ELSE I AM RIOTING BECAUSE NO ONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO END A STAND-ALONE NOVEL LIKE THAT.

I loved this book and it hurts to give it 3 stars but I cannot ignore the disaster that is the ending. That ending really pissed me off. This book ended abruptly it felt like a cliffhanger i couldn’t be certain of what exactly happened and that really angered and if a certain character really died or not but what angered me the most was how the whole story was wrapped up in the epilogue in a 2 PAGES EPILOGUE like who the fuck does that I felt like the author was lazy to continue writing this story. But the rest of the book was awesome I loved the main female character and the setting I even overlooked the insta-love in this, but the ending ruined this book. Full length review to come.

3. Fierce Fairytales: Poems and Stories to Stir Your Soul by Nikita Gill ⭐️⭐️

I admit there are some good poems in it but most of them were so boring and most of the poems were similar and they were delivering the same message and I realized I hate modern poetry so there’s that.

4. The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi ⭐️⭐️

It hurts to give this book two stars but I really didn’t enjoy this. It was too much like Six of Crows but I didn’t mind that so much, it really lacked in making me laugh despite the whirlwind of jokes it contained, it bored me to death and I just couldn’t connect with the characters or the story and the plot and the pacing seemed rushed it wasn’t flushed out well and I was confused during the majority of this book which is never a good sign and it felt like the book tried too hard with the rich history and world building and plot and characters and story that it ended up lacking in enjoyment and it really didn’t flush out anything properly too hard because it focused on everything but I would love to check out other books by Roshani Chokshi.

5. The Girl King ⭐️.5

This was the second biggest disappointment in my reading life. This was one of my most anticipated release of the year and it did a good job on disappointing me. Rant review to come

That’s my January Wrap Up for this challenge and I will make sure to update this post on February.

January Wrap Up + Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up ft. Mini Reviews

Hi guys!!! So in the month of January I read fifteen books which is wild, I don’t usually read that much in a month, this was the a record for me but I am really happy that I was able to read fifteen books. I also participated in Biannual Bibliothon readathon and read five books during that too. I don’t I will be able to read that much in February though.

These are all the books I read this month

1. The Wicker King by K. Ancrum ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I read this for Dragons and Tea book club and I really enjoyed it. It was a heartbreaking book and it had a strong impact on me and it was very complex. My favorite thing about it was the relationship it was so strong and layered and utterly heartbreaking. I just wish it was longer since I wanted to spend more time with the characters.

2. American Panda by Gloria Chao ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.75

I loved this book so much, it’s probably my favorite contemporary book ever and I related so hard with main character, this was such a treat. I cannot recommend this enough. RTC.

3. Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

I really enjoyed this and it’s sequel very much but if you haven’t picked it up and if you want to read this, then I recommend you reading this after the third book comes out because that cliffhanger ruined me. RTC.

4. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.75

This is the second book in the Six of Crows duology and it was so fucking amazing but I was a bit slow and not as amazing as Six of Crows but if you haven’t read this series I feel very sorry for you because you’re missing out a lot. I’m going to do a lengthy Grishaverse review after I finish King of Scars and I am going to do that soon because I cannot wait to go back to the world and be with my babies Nikolai, Nina and Zoya.

5. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo ⭐️⭐️⭐️.75

I didn’t hate this book like everybody else did which was not a surprise for me but it was super slow and the ending was a bit abrupt and anticlimactic but I really enjoyed the rest of the book but my one big problem was the lack of Nikolai fucking Lantsov that really hurt but hopefully King of Scars will make up for it and as I mentioned I will make a lengthy review of this series once I read King of Scars.

Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

Biannual Bibliothon bullet journal spread

6. In An Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.75

This book was super dark and utterly atmospheric and breathtakingly beautiful. Every line is meaningful and powerful, nothing is pointless and it’s like goblin fruit it will give you a taste and then it will make you ache for more and it will deny you that, i am girl made of heartbreak and emotions right now . The whole book is engaging with better plot and characterization and pacing than many books with five hundred pages and for all the author’s talk about fair value this book didn’t give me or it’s characters any fair value. It broke my heart into million tiny pieces and wrecked my soul (how dare you book?) and mind you Seanan McGuire there’s no fair value in ruining someone and author should do that to their on fucking characters ever it’s outright cruel. I will never recover from what this book did to me. If you want to read this series prepare for major heartbreak and Down among the sticks and bones is the fucking best fight me if you don’t agree with that.

7. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

GIVE ME A SEQUEL OR ELSE I AM RIOTING BECAUSE NO ONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO END A STAND-ALONE NOVEL LIKE THAT.

I loved this book and it hurts to give it 3 stars but I cannot ignore the disaster that is the ending. That ending really pissed me off. This book ended abruptly it felt like a cliffhanger i couldn’t be certain of what exactly happened and that really angered and if a certain character really died or not but what angered me the most was how the whole story was wrapped up in the epilogue in a 2 PAGES EPILOGUE like who the fuck does that I felt like the author was lazy to continue writing this story. But the rest of the book was awesome I loved the main female character and the setting I even overlooked the insta-love in this, but the ending ruined this book. Full length review to come.

8. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this book it was fine and I finished this in a day but I enjoyed the first two books more than this and this is my fourth Shadowhunter book and I would really like to finish the whole thing this year, it’s one of my reading goal.

9. Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is stunning both inside and outside. It’s magical, whimsical and queer. This is a rather peculiar story and a story I love dearly, it’s nothing like any other books I read. This is a story about sisters and isolated island, bird murder and rape and how girls deal with that and it’s also about love and lose and grief and amazing friendship. Also the romance is not the highlight of this book but it’s wonderful nonetheless. Also look at that gorgeous cover!!!

10. Fierce Fairytales: Poems and Stories to Stir Your Soul by Nikita Gill ⭐️⭐️

I admit there are some good poems in it but most of them were so boring and most of the poems were similar and they were delivering the same message and I realized I hate modern poetry so there’s that.

Moving on to the rest of the book…..

11. The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi ⭐️⭐️

It hurts to give this book two stars but I really didn’t enjoy this. It was too much like Six of Crows but I didn’t mind that so much, it really lacked in making me laugh despite the whirlwind of jokes it contained, it bored me to death and I just couldn’t connect with the characters or the story and the plot and the pacing seemed rushed it wasn’t flushed out well and I was confused during the majority of this book which is never a good sign and it felt like the book tried too hard with the rich history and world building and plot and characters and story that it ended up lacking in enjoyment and it really didn’t flush out anything properly too hard because it focused on everything but I would love to check out other books by Roshani Chokshi.

12. A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a slow burn book but it build up everything so throughly and I really enjoyed it, there was a lot of court politics and drama and that was wonderful. I am really looking forward for the sequel. Review to come.

13. The Vanishing Stair ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.75

This was so good, I cannot get enough of the series but this book was on the slow side but it was still so good, I demand the sequel, I need it like I need air. Review to come

14. The Girl King ⭐️.5

This was the second biggest disappointment in my reading life. This was one of my most anticipated release of the year and it did a good job on disappointing me. Rant review to come

15. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ All the stars in the universe

This was a reread and it’s one of my absolute favorite book of all time and the rereading this made me love it even more if that’s possible. Everything about this book is phenomenal and the hype is so fucking real, nobody is joking when they say they love this book and this book deserves the love and adoration it gets. Review to come very soon

That’s it for my January Wrap Up, I hope y’all enjoyed and happy reading bye!!!

Deadly assassin tries to save herself but ends up saving the world instead!!!

Alright challenge number 4 done. This is the biannual Bibliothon blog challenge 4 and in this challenge I am supposed to clickbait my favorite book and I did just that. So can you guess what my favorite book is? Probably can. So without further ado let me tell you about one of my favorite book series of all time also known as Throne of Glass series (surprise 🎉🎉). 

This is going to be brief I am just going to talk about the books and what I think about them since I am doing this for the challenge but I am going to upload a more personal one in which I am going to bare my feelings and emotions for this series eventually.

Okay as you all probably know Throne of Glass series and any Sarah J. Maas books in general received and will continue you to receive a lot of mixed reviews, many people love her books, many people hate her books too both for good reasons. But I personally love these books because they were there for me when I needed them and I felt so much for the characters (especially Aelin and Chaol) I love this series because they made me feel better about myself but as I mentioned I am not going to too personal in this post I will save that up for another post. I know the main reason many people hate this series is because of the lack of diversity and representation which I totally get as person who adores diversity and representation in books and many people also don’t like Sarah’s writing and that’s okay I am not the biggest fan of her writing either but I am used to it now when I was first reading ACOTAR (my first book by her) I didn’t like the writing.

Okay that’s enough of me babbling, now I will talk about what these or the first book is about.

Celaena is an assassin but she’s been captured and sent as a slave to a salt mine to work to death but the crown prince seeks her and offers her freedom but she should be his champion in this contest with other criminals like her it is hosted by the king and whoever wins this contest will be the “king’s champion” the person who does the ugly work for the king, Celaena accepts. Soon she goes to the palace to participate but things are not as it seems, other contestants are getting murdered by someone or something and Celaena has to find out who it is before her own life is at stake.

As you can tell I suck at describing books.

That’s it for now. I hope you all have a good day and happy reading!!!

Biannual Bibliothon: day three challenge

The 2019 Winter Biannual Bibliothon was in full swing, but you were craving just a bit more adventure. As you settle in to pick up your current read, Aelin barges into your room, surprising you. You’re told that Aelin’s land is in trouble and you’re needed to aid in finding Wrydkey, the only item that will restore peace and that you’re the only person that can help.

Ecstatic to finally be the chosen one, you agree to help Aelin on this quest! As you begin to travel to their land, you find out that others have tried and failed to retrieve this magical artifact and that you are the last hope. You also find out that because no one has succeeded in this quest, no one knows what you’re up against. There are rumors that you need to defeat 50,000 Firebirds.

Excited, yet nervous, you and Aelin locate the wise elven protector of the land to learn as much as you can about this artifact and how to retrieve it. The elf informs you the artifact is located in the deepest part of The Goblin Market, to your dismay. You and Aelin venture for 12 years to make it to this new land.

Along your journey, you spent your free hours training to master Yoga, hoping this new skill will give you an advantage against your unknown foe. Shortly after arriving at this dangerous land, you finally are face to face with your nemesis, Malyen.

Though you’ve been training, coming face to face with your foe begins to strike you with fear. Your companion encourages you to be strong and reminds you that you’ve been preparing for this. When you go to use your new skill, you learn that Malyen is a master. Nervous, you use the only maneuver you have left. You challenge them to Boxing. Taken aback by this tactic, they hesitate before reluctantly accepting your challenge. Filled with new confidence, you quickly defeat them!

Begrudgingly, Malyen awards you the magical artifact, vowing revenge.

You and Aelin return to their home land, where you are greeted with cheers and applause. You’re thanked repeatedly for returning the artifact and saving the land.  Aelin even shows their gratitude by giving you Hug.

The next thing you know, you are back home with your book in hand. For a moment, you think you made up the whole thing, but then you see the glint of the magical artifact out of the corner of your eye. When you look over, nothing is there, yet you know your adventure was real. With a smile growing, your turn back to your book, already ready for another adventure.

This challenge was so much fun to do and I hope the next challenge is even better.

Biannual Bibliothon: Day 2 challenge

Hi everyone!!! Hope you’re all doing great and since it’s Biannual Bibliothon and it’s day 2 so I am doing the blog challenge today. 

So today’s challenge prompt is :

“You’ve been invited to a Christmas tea/ or Christmas party and no one shows up and you have to think of 12 bookish characters that you would like to invite or bring with you to this tea/party. There will be food/drinks/games to play. But these characters have to play nice and get along with everyone else. Who would you bring with you.” 

Okay so i am to make a list of the characters I would like to bring with me to the Christmas party. 

I am going to pick some “civilized” characters to bring with me since I don’t want them to mess up and embarrass so I won’t pick up my most favorite characters since they would probably ruin the party or something 

  • Mei from American Panda
  • Marcella from Vengeful 
  • Rhysand from A Court of Mist and Fury
  • Dorian from Throne of Glass 
  • Val from Sawkill girls 
  • Wren from Girls of Paper and Fire
  • Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone
  • Mia from Nevernight
  • Jude from The Cruel Prince 
  • Aelin from Throne of Glass
  • Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments
  • Nina from Six of Crows

Not all of them are civilized but they are all I can think of right now so they would have to do but anyways those are the characters I would want to bring with me to a Christmas party.

Biannual Bibliothon: Day one blog challenge

So, as I mentioned in my previous post I will be participating in the Biannual Bibliothon and it’s officially day one. Since there are blog challenges I will be participating in that too.

Okay so in today’s challenge I am supposed to be naming 3 book characters,  2 types of food/drink and one song I would want to have to survive being in a car during a snow storm in the middle of nowhere. Sounds scary but if I have my favorite food and book characters maybe I can survive. 

I would love to be stuck with Lazlo from Strange the Dreamer because he knows lots of stories and fairytales, he can entertain me with them so I wouldn’t get bored and he is the sweetest.

And Mei from American Panda. She would be a fun character to be stuck with. I cannot exactly explain the reason I want her with me but I love her so much and that’s a reason enough and we can probably complain about our strict parents during the storm maybe.

Jesper from Six of Crows because he would crack some lame funny jocks and make me laugh in the middle of that super scary situation.

I would want lots of chocolates and Coca Cola Zero to calm me down.

I don’t listen to a lot of music so I honestly don’t know what song to choose but I wouldn’t get bored listening to Burn (Hamilton) for nonstop (no pun intended).

So those are my picks for that scary scenario.
