Jess @ Jessitculates did this tag, and since I love Six of Crows, I thought I’d answer the questions too! I’m not going to tag anybody at the end, but if you want to do it, go for it. I’d love to read your answers.
Kaz Brekker: A book that you value the most in your collection
Bamboozled by David Legge is probably the most valuable book I own. Not because it’s worth anything monetary or because it won some kind of book award. I used to read it with my grandpa almost every time I visited them and he gave me the book to keep. It’ll always be important to me.
Inej Ghafa: A book that stabbed you in the heart with feels
Well, this was hard to narrow down to one book (because I apparently like to read books that stab me in the heart), but pretty much anything by Ruta Sepetys leaves me wanting to sob.
Jesper Fahey: A book that you took a gamble on that paid off
When Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo was coming out, LitJoy did a Wonder Woman themed box, but in order to guarantee a spot, I had to purchase the month before. I didn’t even know what the book would be, but I ended up loving The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell more than Wonder Woman: Warbringer.
Nina Zenik: A favorite book with an awesome magic system
Since I’m rereading The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen right now, the magic system is fresh in my mind and oh boy, is it awesome.
Matthias Helvar: A book that seemed intimidating but you really enjoyed by the end
It felt like it took forever for me to get into and actually finish reading The Lies of Lock Lamora by Scott Lynch. But it was so, so worth it. And I need to read the second book now… but I’m intimidated by that too!
Wylan van Eck: A book that had a surprising ending
That ending to King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo, though. What. the. Crap.
Kuwei Yul-Bo: A book that you have a fiery passion for
Does Lord of the Rings count? Because I’m always fiery and passionate about Middle-earth.
Pekka Rollins: A book that you felt betrayed you
Is it ironic to say Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim? Because I expected so much more from that story.
Tante Heleen: A book with a stunning cover that you didn’t love
I freaking love the covers for the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco, but boy were those books so disappointing. I liked the first one, but the rest of the series just seemed to get worse with each book.
Jordie Rietvald: a book that you thought about for weeks after finishing it
Weeks? How about years? The Book Thief by Markus Zusak still haunts me.
Joost: a book character that you wish had more page time
He does have a lot of page time, but I really wish Christopher Paolini would write a book or series or something about Brom from the Inheritance Cycle because there is so much potential there.
