- Thank the person who tagged you and pingback to their post
- Give credits to the creator of the tag, Bellerose Reads, and pingback to her post.
Enola Holmes – An independent and smart female protagonist
Phryne Fisher – Phryne Fisher series by Kerry Greenwood
I love Phryne. Everything that she does goes against society’s demands and expectations. She is a modern day woman in an old-fashioned world and she goes against the grain to find out her murderers and criminals.
Sherlock Holmes – You’re favorite mystery/thriller book
Daughters of Night by Laura Shepherd-Robinson
A recent read of mine that I got approved from Netgalley. This book exceeded by expectations I had no idea where it was going and it was the best feeling. I was so engaged in this story and physically couldn’t put it down! I needed to know the answers!
Eudoria Holmes – A character that defies the rules of their society
Voleta – The Books of Babel Quartet by Josiah Bancroft
Voleta, especially in Book 3, defies the rules of the ringdom and the unwritten rules of that ringdom’s society. I loved her chapters where we watch her be carefree and be herself and how fun it was to see people’s shock to her actions. She is such a carefree soul.
Mycroft Holmes – The most annoying character you know
Sky Hawkins – Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst
I couldn’t stand this character. My biggest struggle was the author made her a self-aware character. She knew she was selfish etc. but did nothing to change. Liking knowing was enough for her but it was so annoying! I couldn’t connect with her whatsoever she was just a spoilt brat.
Lord Tewksbury – A character you want to protect at all costs
Edward and Alphonse Elric – Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa
I love these boys with my whole heart! I just want them to be happy. They have gone through so much!
Inspector Lestrade – A loyal side character
Lan – Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan
I would want Lan by side through life. He is such a loyal man (baring in mind I have only read the first two books). I love his loyalty to Moiraine and the task at hand.
Miss Harrison – A book that aged like milk
Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
Now you may love this series. I know it’s still going on but this book came out in 2011 and the writing about race and women feels so gross and outdated. I would like to think that nowadays we have moved on from sweeping stereotypes and over-sexualization of characters! I would have enjoyed the story more if we weren’t in Peter’s head.
Linthorn – A book or character you hated from the very beginning
Harry Dresden – The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
Now I don’t hate Dresden, but I did find him to be annoying. I didn’t like his whole gentlemanly façade it felt outdated and his comments about women made me uncomfortable! I didn’t continue the series as I didn’t want to spend more time with him as a main character. I would probably have enjoyed the book more if it was in a different perspective.
Edith – Your favorite book with Black rep
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
I really enjoyed this book and I really enjoyed the characters in this story. They were so varied and so much fun!
