It’s a Book Tag…yeah.

Answer the Questions (duh)
Tag your friends!
The Invested Aunt: A Character’s romantic relationship you are deeply invested in
Bella from the Twilight Saga. I really don’t know how much more invested I can be into another person’s love life than I am with Bella Swans. Like I made flow charts for reasons why she should or shouldn’t be with different characters of the series. FLOW CHARTS PEOPLE.
The Controlling Mom: A Character that takes control of every situation
For this one I would have to choose Rose Calloway Cobalt from the Addicted series by Becca and Krista Ritchie. If you have read the series you would know that Rose is a force to be reckoned with. She is the type of person who has everything under control and in her control; and if it isn’t–by hell and high water it will be within seconds. Nothing happens without her express knowledge or approval–and I mean NOTHING. She is literally a 10/10.
The Drunk Uncle: A book that was just all over the place
Fifty Shades Freed…well the whole trilogy really. Hot damn was this series all over the place. Plot wise, writing wise, character wise…just everything–everywhere. Mucho Messy.
The Snoozing Grandpa: A Book you just keep falling asleep on
Moby Dick. The worlds most boring story ever. Never will I forget the near one hundred pages that were solely dedicated to cataloguing the different types of whales. Yes, you may begin to shudder now, because I am.
The Nosey Grandma: A Character who stays in everybody else’s business
The Suriel from the ACOTAR series. She is our gossip queen who has forever been in everyone’s business. Sometimes I even think she sits down in the forest and drinks some tea while peeping into others peoples futures and such. Honestly, I will stan her until the day I die.
The Bored Kid: A Character that you are just over already
Clary from the Mortal Instruments series. Like honestly, everytime I am in her POV, I cringe inside. I don’t remember being that melodramatic when I was a teenager
The Show-off Cousin: A Book that isn’t what it claims to be
THIS WILL FOREVER BE A MONSTERS CALL BY PATRICK NESS. THIS BOOK IS THE MOST NOT WHO THEY SAY THEY WERE BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. I WAS PROMISED SPOOKY BUT WHAT I GOT WAS KLEENEX BOXES. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
The Awkward Date: A Character you don’t even know why is there
Cho Chang from the Harry Potter series. Literally don’t even know her purpose really, besides being Harry’s first crush and girlfriend to Diggory before he became Voldemort’s exercise ball. What a time.
The Spoiled Sibling: A Character that gets whatever they want
Speaking of Harry Potter I think we can piggy bank this one to show the worlds most spoiled character in modern literature–Potter’s cousin, Dudley. Do I really need to say more? Do I?
The Mid-life Crisis Dad: A Book that switched covers in the middle of the series
The list is literally endless but I’m going to go with the Across the universe series because this was my biggest WTF cover change. The first two books in the trilogy were beautiful! BEAUTIFUL! Then when the final installment happens–boom we are given this travesty:
Do you see this anarchy?!
