I’m currently reading the newest Wayward Children book; Across the Green Grass Fields, and I thought it would be fitting to find a book tag that goes with the series. After a short search online I found an original tag over at Penelope the Paperback Cat‘s Youtube channel! It looks great, so let’s jump in!
1. Halls of the Dead
A book where nothing much happened but you enjoyed it anyway
This is a hard one to start off with! I feel like something always happens, whether its action or character development. But there are hardly any books where truly nothing happens, and that I still enjoy haha. I’m cheating a bit in picking A Dead Djinn in Caïro. This story is only 43 pages long so not much can happen ;). It was still amazing! And I can’t wait for the full length novel.
A sweet character
Oops, these usually aren’t my favourite characters to be honest. I guess Zuzanna from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series is a very sweet character. She is super supportive of Karou, and she is possibly my favourite best friend I ever read.
3. The Moors
Morally grey characters
A Darker Shade of Magic is full of morally grey characters. And I love it! If I could only read books with morally grey characters for the rest of my life I wouldn’t mind it at all. Victoria Schwab writes some amazing morally grey character and I can’t wait for the spinoff series in this universe.
4. Mariposa (Country of the Bones)
A book where someone returns from the dead
Pretty spoilery haha. I will go with the A Court of Thorns and Roses series where this happens about 3 times ;). And I hated some of those haha. But I feel like this is the least spoilery book I can mention. I am in the middle of another series where this happens and I can’t wait for the next book because I was shocked!
A book with Gender Diversity
I’m currently reading Across the Green Grass Fields like I said, and it definitely has gender diversity. It has some representation I hadn’t ever read about yet. I don’t want to spoil anything because I loved the way we found it out through the story. As soon as I’m done writing this post I will go back to the book ;).
A book with mermaids!
I really enjoy Daughter of the Pirate King that has to do with mermaids. The sequel is on my TBR for this year so I can finally finish the series haha. I also want the read Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire) that features very disturbing mermaids.
A book with very detailed world building
Nevernight is one of my favourite books and the extensive world building is a big part of that! There are footnotes in the books in this series with extra information about the world. Once you’re used to the format of the book it’s absolutely amazing. I thought it was very well done and so cool. You can really tell how much effort the author put into building the world.
A book with a wicked woman
I’m going with an easy pick because I can’t think of that many to be honest, the Lunar Chronicles has a very wicked woman as it’s main villain! It’s been a while since I read this series but I loved it a lot. I can’t wait to read more Marissa Meyer books.
A book that makes you think staying on Earth might be ok
This is another tough one. I have to go with the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series. This is such a cute series and one of my absolute favourites. I love the storylines and if it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t want to leave Earth before I get a chance to watch the last movie ;).
This was the Wayward Children Book tag! I really enjoyed the questions, some of them were very unique. What book makes you think staying on Earth might be ok? I would love the hear from you in the comments.
