Thank you so much to Danielle @lifeofaliterarynerd for tagging me. You should totally check out her blog bc it’s awesome.
In celebrating the release of Wonder Woman (the movie) and the coming release of Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer (Aug 29) which I’m DYING to get my hands on, we’re all gonna do this super fun tag while we wait.
Wonder Woman: Your favorite badass female book character
That would have to be, Inej Ghafa from the Six Of Crows duology by the Queen herself, Leigh Bardugo. This kid can climb, burning walls and hide from shadows, there ain’t nothing cooler than captain Ghafa.

Fantasy Island: A Book Setting you want to escape to
AAAAAHHHHHH! This was so difficult to choose, not only bc most of my favourite worlds are the one where there is a super evil dictator instilling chaos and bloodshed in the streets, but also bc I want to live in all my favourite books and be best friends with all my favourite characters.
Anyways, my choice would be the Lunar Chronicles (post Winter, if I can have any say in it) bc its one of my ABSOLUTE favourite series of all time and like living on the moon people, it doesn’t get much better than that.
London: A Hyped book that let you down
Ha, ha, ha.
Looks like we’ve returned to this. Royal Bastards was truly one of the biggest let downs of 2017. Its got a great synopsis, great potential, but with the characters making so many terrible decisions and having everything conveniently drop in place for them, it felt more like reading about a utopian world.

Steve Trevor: A Book that has a beautiful Cover and a Great Story (i.e. great personality)
I just finished reading This Adventure Ends and I’m entirely trash. It was sososososoososososo PERFECT. It was like everything I’ve ever wanted and dreamed of from a contemporary. And having a gorgeous cover also helps it along.
Damn, I wanna reread it already.
Lasso of Truth: A Book you hated
Can you hear the sound of my disappointment? Because I can. When Dimple Met Rishi
was supposed to fix my life and hydrate my pores and moisturize my skin but instead it left me with some eye twitching disappointment.

Bye bye @ dimple
Wonder Woman’s Shield: A book so sad you need a shield
This was also a rough call to make bc I seem to have an affinity with reading books that crush my soul. Anyways, A List of Cages was one of the most devastatingly tragic yet heartfelt books I’ve ever read.
READ IT!!! YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!!
Ares: A Villain that is scary, but you can’t seem to hate
OMG, this is probably my favourite question from this tag. Piper Greenmantle who first appeared in Blue Lily Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater would have to take this title.
Piper is so fricken awesome. She’s a head-strong character who loves makeup and clothing and pink and stabbing and destroying the world. She’s incredible, one of my favourite villains of all time.

The Amazons: A book that you wish had more/better LTBT+ representation
The first book that comes to mind is A Court of Wings and Ruin bc I’ve still bitter about it and I really disliked the way the representation was handled. Sorry, its a no-no from me.
Justice League: What superhero book friends do you tag?
& Marami who was already tagged but imma tag her again bc thats was besties do.
