So people of the blogosphere I've been looking forward to this post for a little while because I'm a total disney freak and the girls at Quality Fangirls are going the Cinderella Book Tag for there guest post today. Nicole and Sophia are both taking part so enjoy the post and if you decide to take part in the tag leave a link in the comments bellow.
Quality Fangirls is the collective craziness of two best friends; Sophia & Nicole. In their 10 years (and counting) of friendship it only recently arrised that they were both completely book / fandom obsessed. The only next logical step was to create a blog and share their crazy with the world. Nicole is the artsy management of the duo; smart, punctual, hard working, photoshop genius, she's the reason the blog runs as beautiful as it does ( though she's completely and utterly crazy, all the smart ones are). Sophia is the creative procrastionator that every duo has, between writing posts last minute and going through weird reading binges and then flat lines for months it's honestly a marvel that Nicole has yet to murder her. Here at QF there is one goal; to create the best colaboration of books and fandom mash up as possible and to share it with the people who get our feels. Check out their blog at qualityfangirls.blogspot.com or their twitter @qualityfangirls!
a book with characters you just hate
N Rites of Passage by Joy N Hensley
Wow Sam Mckenna had to deal with a bunch of sexist bullies, and let me tell you, I have never been so mad reading a book. At some points I ragged with anger. It was so terribly realistic and just reminds me how sexist some people can actually be. The fact that Sam dealt with these guys and was still left standing is what makes me love her so much. But yeah, those guys, totally hate them.
S Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
It kills me to have to read about the two kings off being sick horrible people. Between The king is Assassins and The King of Ardalan it just makes me blood boil. Not just for the things they do to Celeana but to the world.
a book with a gentleman
N Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
Oh Jem. I rarely talk about Jem, but I absolutely adore him. He is the perfect picture gentleman, how can you think otherwise? He is adorable, polite, kind, generous, patient. I mean you need all those things to be able to put up with Will Herondale's ridiculousness. I love Jem!
S Wesley Ayers from The Archive by Victoria Schwab
Wesley Ayers, maybe he's not the picture perfect gentleman and that's what makes him even more so. He's charming and caring and funny. He's there when you need him. That's what's the most important in being a gentleman.
a character that is graceful, kind, and defiant
N Lissa from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Lissa is the exact definition of this. Graceful, kind, and defiant. Everything about Lissa just seems so graceful and elegant. Her healing abilities show how extremely kind she is to those who are hurt. And of course she's defiant, just read the series till the end and you will definitely know what I mean!
S Celeana Sardothian from Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Not to double dip but Celena Sardothian is exactly that. Graceful, kind, and defiant. One second, she can be dancing in a ball, taking everyone's breaths away, then she can be helping slaves while defying an unjust system.
a character that always has someone looking out for them
N Gansey from The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Gansey, the leader of the pack, seems to have all his friends looking out for him. Blue, Ronan, Adam, and even Noah. They all care about his well being even if he seems to forget himself. Especially with the inevitable end, everyone is going to want to keep him safe.
S Katniss Everdeen from Hunger Games Suzanne Collins
Although she went through so much crap and did get used she always had people in her corner. Always had people making sure she was alive and well. While others died without aid, Katniss was lucky enough to have people fighting for her on the outside and inside.
something that makes you happy when you’re sad
N Not sure what makes me happy when I'm sad. A really light hearted funny book definitely does the trick. Or talking to the bf helps too. I haven't really gotten down a sure way that will cheer me up, which is something I need to work on!
S Watching funny movies or TV shows. Sometimes I just need to bask in it for a little while and let the humor soak into me and then I feel better.
a book you didn’t care for
N The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
I was pretty excited to start this series since I loved To All The Boys and I heard pretty good things about these books. Unfortunately, it was just not for me. I wasn't too crazy on the writing, the characters, or anything that was happening. Not really sure if I'll continue on with the rest of the books…
S Insurgent by Veronica Roth
I love Divergent, don't get me wrong, but I barely made it through Insurgent. It was a struggled just to get to barely half way through it.
a character with a transformation
N Sydney Sage from Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
How can I not mention Sydney? From book one to book six she has grown so, so much, its incredible. Seriously, the most character development, that wasn't forced or anything, that I've seen thus far. I think its why I love this series so much, because of the amazing character development that not just Sydney has, but even the other characters too. Just totally proud of them :')
S Allyson Healey from Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Allyson Healey, man talk about transformation. She went on this year old journey of self discovery and came out the other side a brand new person. It was endearing. We all strive to transform the way she did.
a book with an ending you didn’t see coming
N Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Yep I didn't see this coming at all. Not sure if I should have or not, obviously I should have been suspicious, because I usually am. For those who have already read Red Queen, Im not talking about the very, very end, just kinda before that. You definitely know what I mean ;)
S Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Maybe not the entire ending but definitely things towards the end of the book that really took me by surprise. Things that I did not AT ALL see coming. You all know what I mean.
something that inspires you to be courageous
N This is going to sound super cheesy but my boyfriend inspires me to be courageous. I know what you're thinking, how lame of me, it sounds lame to me too. But, no really, a lot of things happened that made me have to face my fears and somehow get the courage to do them. And it was because of that courage that we're together today, and ever since then I face my fears in either doing something or saying something, even if I'm too scared to and would rather hide.
S A lot of things actually inspire me to be courageous but the number one would probably be seeing other people be courageous when they're scared out of their minds. People who stand up to injustice they see or people who break free of their own injustice. People who push on even if they feel like they're going to fail. Those types of things keep me on my toes.
Happily Ever After
a book with a perfect ending
N The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead
Okay maybe not a perfect ending, but a really wonderful one nonetheless. Without giving the whole entire ending of the series away, it wasn't an over the top crazy ending, but it did wrap up the entire VA world together. It was cute, adorable, and just what I needed after all that crazy stuff happened in the past six books.
S Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Is it cheating to use a book that says happily ever after in the title? Cause I mean it is kinda implied before you even read it, but regardless it's the kinda happy that you're not even ready for. It's everything you could ever want in a perfect ending.
