I’m still forever behind on tags. Literally, I’m just going to put that as part of my description. “Hello! I’m Mandy from Book Princess Reviews and I’m forever behind on tags.” But you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me getting my butt on them since I, you know, I have ones all the way back from March. *looks around innocently*
I’m super excited, though, to bring you a tag created by the wonderful, Kyera over at Kyera’s Library. If you haven’t been over to her blog and followed her yet, I really don’t know you might have missed her in your book blog life. 😉 She is so incredibly sweet, has so many fantastic reviews, totally gets the true fandom life (and has some epic series going on for them), and has great bookish fun. I’m so excited to bring you her own tag today!
- Link back to my original post on Kyera’s Library so I can see all your answers! (Be sure to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my URL)
- Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show the community some love!
- Obviously, come up with your wonderful answers!
- Don’t forget to tag others to keep the tag going!
ODIN – FAVORITE STAND ALONE
Odin is the All-Father, the leader of the Norse Gods. He is the god of wisdom, poetry, battle, death, wine, and war, among other things.
Fun fact, but a lot of my favorites are standalones. I’ve discovered in a the past year or so that I’m apparently not much of a series kind of gal. Maybe because I hate waiting? Anyway, my favorites shelf is a mess, but I’ll go with 3 standalones that were added to my favorites shelf this year: Geekerella, One of Us Is Lying, and Eliza and Her Monsters.
THOR – A BOOK THAT HITS YOU IN THE FEELS
Thor is the god of thunder, weather, warriors, strength, and storms, so his might packs a punch. He is married to the beautiful Lady Sif.
Ugh, basically any contemporary book hits me so hard in the feels. Right now, Winter by Marissa Meyer is hitting me sooooooooooooooo hard. My poor lovely babies are going through so many struggles. I just want to hug them all. SO MUCH LOVE. SO MANY SWOONS. SO. MANY. FEELS.
LOKI – BIGGEST BOOK PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL
Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos.
I’m not much of a Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard fan, but I will give credit when credit is due: I so didn’t see that one thing coming. I mean, I was SO blind to it. And maybe that’s why I totally haven’t gotten up the energy to read the second book. I was super betrayed, and I haven’t gotten bookish over it.
FRIGG – OTP
Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility, and fate.
*looks around innocently* Cress…Cresswell?
HEIMDALL – FAVORITE SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES
Heimdall is the god of loyalty, faithfulness and he is who protects the bi-frost, the bridge that connects all nine worlds.
Oh, Kyera, it’s like you just want me to talk about TLC more and more. I actually used to hate a TON of second books in the series. I used to call it the dread sequel sickness, but in truth, second books are getting so much better now. Some of my favorite second books are: Scarlet, Gemina, and ACOMAF.
BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER
Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.
…Thorne. ❤ ❤ ❤ Can we just change this tag to be called, Mandy fangirls about TLC? XD
SIF – MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVER
Lady Sif is known for her beautiful golden tresses, although she is also the goddess of the harvest and is married to Thor.
One of my favorites this year is Saints and Misfits. It just pleases me so very much! It’s a good thing the inside matched the inside as well!
FREY – BOOK/SERIES THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
Frey is the Lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.
…okay, I’m not going to use TLC yet again even though I kind of totally want to. The Unfair Godmother series totally rocks my boat and I always have a huge smile on my face anytime I read them.
FREYA – FAVORITE BOOK SETTING
Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.
I really love the settings of Simone St. James novels. It’s haunting and intriguing and cool. Not sure I want to live in this time period, but I will forever dive into this setting of World War 1 and 2 with ghosties.
TYR – FAVORITE BOOK WITH A BIG UPHEAVAL/EPIC FIGHT SCENE
Tyr is the god of war
Ummmmmmmmmmm. Huh. I apparently don’t read many books with giant epic fight scenes, because I’m super drawing a blank. I’m not sure if it’s me or not me, but I actually find fight scenes in books really boring. I feel like a fight scene needs to be visual and I have a hard time picturing it in a book.
ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST
Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.
This. This. This. No spoilers, but you know who.
NJORD – FAVORITE BOOK AN EPIC JOURNEY ON WATER/OCEAN SETTING
Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. Not entirely sure if this was a journey, but it was a journey of sorts. And basically I just want to push this at more people. Loved, loved, loved this book, and Alosa certainly goes on an epic journey mentally, emotionally, physically.
VALKYRIE – FAVORITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER
The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.
See above with Alosa. 😉
AESIR/VANIR – FAVORITE BOOK “CREW”
The Aesir and the Vanir are the two groups of Norse gods, believed to be the old and new gods.
I’m stealing Kyera’s answer of the SOC crew. They were so amazing together and they totally kicked some major butt.
SEIPYRTS – FAVORITE SIDEKICK (NON-HUMAN CHARACTER)
Seipyrts is Odin’s trusty eight legged steed, yes you heard that correctly – eight legs. I promise that he is the god’s horse companion and not a giant spider that he rides around on… although that would probably strike more fear in the hearts of his enemies than a pretty horse does.
I just finished Hunted by Meagan Spooner and her trusted doggie, Doe-Eyes was so cute and adorable and omg.
