I was tagged by the supposed “Ruler of Books/Book Queen,”
she kinda nominated herself for this title Emma from @emmareadstoomuch and while she’s trying to compete with me for my title, she’s still a muffin and you should totally check out her v cool blog.
What book would you make everyone read?
Wow, that’s quite a lot of responsibility, making EVERYONE read one book. Imagine if they DIDN’T like it and your reputation is tarnished for generations to come.
Okay, but I’m getting ahead of myself, so hhmmmmmmmm probably the Illuminae Series bc it owns my heart and I don’t think anyone can hate on it
its just literally that perfect and the boys in it. D A Y M.
What would you abolish in book construction?
To be completely honest, I never thought about this.
But now that you’re getting my gears moving, I’d probably say Switching Genres in the Middle of a Series. And you’re probably like what the crap May, no one does that? and I am here to tell you that one of my FAVOURITE authors in fact did that.
SJM went from very YA to very NA in the matter of one book (for both her series). and while I’m an ~*adult*~ so it didn’t impact me, I can see it being very annoying for younger readers (plus those scenes are kinda. . .um. . .highly
cringey unnecessary, but i mean, that’s just me)
What author would you commission to write you any book?
This woman has ruined my life with her writing. I feel like sci-fi and YA and squads and beautifully diverse characters will NEVER be able to live up to the standard that Marissa Meyer has built, this woman is a queen.
we dont speak or mention Heartless in this house, you hear me.
What book would you demote to the library basement in order to make room for new books?
Wow, rood much.
It’s okay, I’m v rood to books and it’s not a nice trait of mine but I don’t care to fix it bc *~opinions~* are still free so fite me.
I mean, I have a multiple folders dedicated to books that I’d rather do laundry BY HAND than read
and that’s SAYING something
What cover artist would you commission to make a mural?
Oh frick this is a good question.
I’ve kinda been obsessed with the covers from the Firebird series. They’re so aesthetic and my little artist heart gets all fuzzy when it lays eyes on these books.
Just look how perfect they are.
What character’s face would you put on a coin?
This is going to be a tie in between Chaol, Nik, Wesley, Khalid, Wolf, August, and Gansey.
You really dont want to ask me to choose between these babies bc i will either 1) riot – which will look weird to see a short kid throwing a tantrum in public and 2) or curl into a ball and cry and then youre gonna have to be in the awkward position of comforting me
so 🙂 your move
What book would award the “Ruler of Books” 2016 prize to?
I’m assuming that this is supposed to read 2017 rather than 2016 but I got ya, i’m going to play along and choose something from my 2016 read shelves that shattered my being and graciously award it to. . .
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
I DONT CARE IF THIS WAS WRITTEN IN 2006 I READ IT IN 2016 AND THEREFORE IT COUNTS AS 2016
If you haven’t read this book yet, then I dont want to talk to you until you do read it and then come and cry with me because this book is honest to goodness perfection and it has changed my life no joke. Please read it.
And I tag ALL you reading bc I don’t wanna leave anyone out and its already past my bed time and I really need to sleep.
Thx again @ emma for tagging me in this v fun tag. Now I wanna see all of YOUR answers!!
