Hi Bookies!

I’m here today with another Tag Tuesday post! Today’s tag is the Wonder Woman Book Tag! This was created by the lovely Amber! I’ll leave all of her links down below!


I’m going to tag:

Jessica
Donna
Chelsea

I linked to everyone’s most recent post as of 7/28 ❤ Except for Chelsea because her blog is through Blogger so I don’t know how that works. I know that WordPress won’t notify the person unless you link to one of their posts.

Let’s just get into this!

1. Wonder Woman: Your favorite badass female book character

I’d have to say Audrey Rose from Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco.

2. Fantasy Island: A book setting you want to escape to

I’m going to kind of cheat on this one and go with Supacon from Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde. It’s not really another setting but it’s definitely another world. A world that I would fit right into.

3. London: A hyped book that let you down

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas. I hyped this book up for myself after reading ACOMAF and I just couldn’t handle it. I wanted it to be so much more than it was. It was boring and the ending bothers me too much.

4. Steve Trevor: A book that has a beautiful cover and a great story (i.e. great personality)

Caraval! I absolutely adore this cover! It’s so gorgeous. And I adored the story inside of it. It was so interesting to me! I have a full review that I’ll link below along with any other reviews that I have for any of the books mentioned.

5. Lasso of Truth: A book you hated

City. Of. Ashes.

6. Wonder Woman’s Shield: A book so sad you need a shield

A List of Cages. This was the first book that popped into my head for this question. I cried my eyes out.

7. No Man’s Land: A book that you want to send through No Man’s Land (i.e. shoot it to death)

I’m going to go with Wrong Question, Right Answer from the Bourbon Steet Boys series by Elle Casey. I enjoyed the first two but this one was just bad in my opinion. I didn’t like Toni at all. I liked her the first two books but I guess that’s because I wasn’t in her head. I am not a fan of her anymore. And now I’m trying to motivate myself to read the last one but I just didn’t like this one.

8. Ares: A villian that is scary, but you can’t seem to hate

The Darkling! I was typing out these questions before I went through and answered them and I knew that I would choose the Darkling for this.

He was a horrible person. But I just couldn’t seem to hate him. I knew in the last book that he was a bad person. But still! He was just trying to save his country!

9. Dr. Poison: A villian that has no reason to exist

I wasn’t sure of an answer so I asked my husband. He said Sandman from Spider-Man 3. So, yeah. We’ll go with that.

10. The Amazons: A book that you wish had more/better LGBT+ representation

Okay. Now hear me out for this one. I think that the A Court of Thorns and Roses should have better LGBT+ rep. Maas tried to do it in ACOWAR but it just didn’t work. It was forced and you could tell. I just wish that she wouldn’t have been pressured into it and it ending up badly. I give her props for trying but I personally just didn’t like it.

11. Justice League: What superhero book friends do you tag?

    i completely agree with you on acowar it was good but not as great as acomaf and the ending did bother me and the whole thing with mor it wasn’t convincing at all you can tell she did it because of the controversy

    1. Thanks! You should do it also and let me know! I loved doing it.

      But yeah. All the diversity in ACOWAR was completely forced. I hate that authors get pressured into writing diverse characters when they don’t have the research or experience to do so. With her deadline, she wouldn’t have time to have written that kind of diversity. Yes, she should have done it before writing the story and world. But authors are under so much scrutiny for not writing diverse character but the moment they do, they end up attacked for portraying the diversity wrong. Like, who was it, that one character who was bisexual. The guy. People complained that he was made out to be a man whore and it offended bisexuals. So people attacked Maas. But I don’t see people attacking Jack Harkness as a bisexual/omnisexual man whore.

      I don’t know. It’s controversial but that’s how I feel. Yes, authors should write diverse characters but they shouldn’t be attacked when they don’t or try and do it wrong.

      1. yes it’s so controversial i just think people should know that diversity isn’t just in sexuality but in everything else like skin tones or appearances and characters attitude and what they believe in .
        mass is doing her share i can tell she is trying she isn’t the most diverse but she has some at least and that appreciated
        you are right they shouldn’t be attacked when authors are pressured to write something they aren’t planed for beforehand it can reflect poorly on their story and creativity .

  2. Real fun reading your answers. I have Caraval waiting for me on my bookshelf. But I have to wait and read it for a bit since I´m about to move into a new apartment.
