The Fictional Family Book Tag

Another day, another tag! Another big thank you to Siobhan @ Siobhan’s Novelties for the tag. Mandy and I actually had to get up and like, move our book stacks to do this tag, which was major effort but fun, so we’re not complaining. (Too much.)


RULES

Pick 8 books off your shelves (try to not pick just your favorites!)
Arrange them into a random order (randomizers are good for this).
In the order they are arranged, open them to a random page and write down the first name you see. Don’t mix up the names!
In the last book, find the name of an animal/pet and write it down.
Put the names in the right category.
Tag people (spread the love) & copy and paste these rules in your post


OUR NEW BOOKISH FAMILY


PARENT ONE

MANDY: Genevieve from Courting Darkness. I actually don’t know much about her yet other than she a little testy, incredibly fierce, and feels quite abandoned by the convent. She a little spicy, so I mean, I definitely think I need to behave myself, or I might get a worst punishment than being sent to bed without dessert since she is an assassin nun.

SHA: Keeper from Entangled by Heather Dixon. I guess my number one parent is now a dangerous and seductive king, banished from his castle because of his dark magic use (and also murdering, there was the murdering too).

Courting Darkness (Courting Darkness Duology, #1)Entwined


PARENT TWO

MANDY: Dr. Erland from Cress. Okay, like, does this mean I happen to be related to a certain someone then???? He was always pretty cool father-figure in TLC, so I’m game. Thank gosh I didn’t land on Carswell or else this would have been really awk.

SHA: Max-Ernest from The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch. I haven’t read this series in so long. (I actually haven’t read A LOT of the books I picked in so long, so my brain is really burning from all the thinking here.) Max-Ernest who always goes by both names, never just the one, is a thirteen-ish boy who lives with two parents who are divorced BUT because they want him to live a normal *cough cough* life, they just evenly divided their house in two so he doesn’t have to commute like other children of divorced parents.

SIBLING ONE

MANDY: Alucard from A Gathering of Shadows. I’m so down. With his wit and charm, I totally think we would have some ultimate fun. Plus, his loyalty to his sister was total goals, so I’m here for thissssssssss. Plus, he has a fancy ship…even though I get super seasick.

SHA: Nash from If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) by Rachel Vincent. A hottie with magical colour-changing eyes and a drug problem. Although I guess I shouldn’t say the hottie bit since we are now related.

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5)


SIBLING TWO

MANDY: Claudio from Much Ado About Nothing. Well, this was a mistake. I don’t even remember himmmmmmmmm. Well, at least he will be quiet?

SHA: Rozalind from Rule by Ellen Goodlett. The queen of a nation is now my sis. I didn’t get much personality from her in Rule, but that’s okay, I have enough for both of us. She can braid my hair, since I believe she has luscious locks and will have braiding skills.  

Much Ado About NothingRule (Rule, #1)


COUSIN

MANDY: Riden from Daughter of the Pirate King. Well, he is a little broody…and moody…and very tormented, so this is good that we can just have family functions. But I mean, he is a pirate, and I could always be like, Well, *I* have a pirate for a cousin, so a) I have cool stories and b) I shall hopefully be getting some gold for Christmas! Plus, he better be bringing Alosa and her fabulous girl crew around.

SHA: Richie from Between by Jessica Warman. I literally had no clue who this was so I had to skim read the beginning of the book. Then I was LIKE OH, GOOD, I get me a shady cousin!! Because Richie, I believe, had something to do with drugs (maybe not, but if so, my family definitely has a drug problem) and he was a cheater and sketch guy.

BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND

MANDY: Cooper from One of Us is Lying. Well, Cooper was my least favorite from this book, since he was always a bit dry, so um…yeah. Not down for this one.

SHA: Stella from A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. OMG Stella is such the interesting character. I would date her 100%. I would also be lost half the time but that’s relationships, baby.

One of Us Is LyingA Streetcar Named Desire


BEST FRIEND

MANDY: Matthias from Six of Crows. Um…um…hmmmmm. HOW DID I MANAGE TO HAVE ALL THE BROODERS. He so broody. I’m not sure I can deal. Plus, I feel like we would have a lot of silent get togethers.

SHA: Mickey Cray from Chomp by Carl Hiaasen. Is my best friend a married, middle-aged man? YES. YES IT IS. Mickey is a professional animal wrangler so you know what, I’m down.

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Chomp


PET

MANDY: Douglas from Jackaby. Yessssssssssssss. Yessssssssssssssss. Detective assistant turned duck. I’m so down for this.

SHA: Coyote (spotted in Gone by Michael Grant). I’m actually not sure if a coyote is like, a kind of wolf or a whole other thing and I feel dumb because I know nothing about my own pet but it’s mine and you can’t have it.


Tag! You’re it!

We tag everyone who has read at least three of the books on this list!!

  1. Mandy, I love how Alucard is one of your siblings. Also, A Gathering of Shadows is the only book on this list that I’ve actually read.

  2. Oh gosh, I haven’t read any of these books minus Six of Crows and Cress (so yeah Mandy, you defo will receive a lot of brooding silence on the other end, though I can actually imagine Dr. Erland being a good parent), but it’s also kinda funny how the idea of a murdering king as a parent will play out (sorry Sha, you’ll likely die) and I can’t believe how excited (?) you were about having a drug dealer as a cousin. 😂😂 You guys are wild.

    But for reals, missed you ladies! Loved your answers! ❤

    1. To be honest, I hadn’t read any of the ones I picked in over *at least* a year, so I was struggling myself. I… will probably die, yes. Or he will love me so much that he murders everyone else for me? (is this any better?…)

      Missed you too!! ❤

  3. OMG BUT WHAT IF MY FICTIONAL FAMILY WAS COMPILED OF ALL OF MY BOOK BOYRFRIENDS/HAREM.

    AND I WOULD BE QUEEN.
