Okay, so if you read my previous post – Why I suck at blogging – you would know that I intended to post once a week. Well, I failed, and it’s only week two! BUT! I have a valid excuse: last week I was terribly terribly ill and I couldn’t even get out of bed long enough to read a chapter. So that means that I was pretty damn sick. In order to make it up to you, I have the Gilmore girls booktag ready! One positive point about being sick last week was that I got to binge watch all four episode of the new Gilmore girls season. I have some mixed feelings (GRRRR that ending!!!! GIVE ME MORE EPISODES!) but I still decided to do the Gilmore girls booktag!
The main idea is this: match books to each of the main Gilmore girls characters. Ready? Lets go!
Lorelai: A character with a witty or sarcastic sense of humor. Can I just say that I really love Lorelai as a mom? She is just perfect! But my favorite witty character is definitely Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series. And I know for sure that I would have loved her even more if I read the books at the correct age instead of when I was in my twenties. Oh well, I just bought the Heroes of Olympus series so I guess you could say I loved both Annabeth and Percy enough (Percy is witty enough to be a contender for this question too BTW) to continue on with the other books.
Rory: Favorite classic. Oeh, you got me there, I don’t like reading classics all that much. But I guess Alice in wonderland might be my favorite. It is also a bit quirky just like Rory so that seems to be the perfect fit for this character!
Luke: A book you secretly love, but are afraid to admit. Well, I’m not really afraid to tell people I love a certain book. So that makes this a very hard question to answer. But I guess I’ll go with Harry Potter and the cursed child. I know there are plotholes, I know there is some weird character development going on with our three beloved main characters and I know that some things just don’t add up. BUT I really loved diving back into the world after all these years. Plus, Albus and Scorpius are two wonderful main characters and they just made the entire story for me. It was so nostalgic to read that I just devoured it from cover to cover and I gave it 5 out of 5 stars. So there. Now you know!
Lane: A musical character. Oh no, the only character I can come up with is Mia Hall from ‘If I stay’, who plays the cello. WHY WHY WHY can’t I come up with some cool, kick-ass character (yes, pun intended for those of you who get it 😉 ) from an awesome book?!! No, I have to come up with a character from a book I hated so much that I actually gave it away! I never give away books. They are my babies and I love them. But this one? Ugh! No thanks! So yeah, Mia, moving on quickly…
Dean: Your first book love (character or book you first loved). Okay, this one is so easy and yet I still feel somewhat ashamed to admit it. But my first booklove was obviously Edward Cullen from Twilight. It is far from the first book I’ve ever read, but Edward is the first fictional character that I fell madly in love with. I so wish I could have answered with a Harry Potter character, but to be honest, I wasn’t really into the whole ‘I love fictional characters’ thing until the Twilight craziness hit me, HARD.
Sookie: A book you’ve devoured. Three dark crowns by Kendare Blake. This is a very recent release and I absolutely LOVED this book. I fell in love with the characters right away. I liked the plot and especially the ending, which I didn’t see coming at all! I can’t wait for the next instalment in this series! (grabby hands!)
Jess: A book you love, that gets the most hate. I could go with Twilight, again. But that would be repeating myself and I really don’t like that. So I’ll go with A court of mist and fury by Sarah J. Maas. Okay I know a lot of people do really like this book. But in my bookclub, almost everyone truly hates it! Or they hate the first book (which I did too!) and absolutely refuse to read the second one. Oh Rhys, come and save me from this madness! (Plus, he is definitely equally swoon-worthy as Jess is)
Miss Patty: A book that was ruined by the hype. Paper towns by John Green. This book is sooooo overhyped and I ended up hating it. I might have hated it less if it wasn’t for my sky-high expectations of this book. John Green obviously brings a lot of hype, but secondly, the film also made me super excited to read this book. And it failed. Miserably. Moving on now, because this question makes me angry and disappointed with the book all over again.
Emily Gilmore: An expensive book. I actually picked a series for this one, namely the Harry Potter series! I got the BEAUTIFUL hardcover edition that I got from my parents for my birthday a couple of years ago. And it was crazy expensive but so so pretty on my shelves! Just like Emily I guess, expensive but nice to look at? No? :p
Paris: An uptight character. She kinda freaks me out actually. Paris is CREEPY when she doesn’t like you. And a little creepy when she does like you too. So the perfect fit for this one is Zoe Sage, the sister of Syndey Sage from Bloodlines. The spin-off series of Vampire Academy. In the beginning of the series, Syndey was pretty uptight herself but she ended up being pretty damn cool. Her sister however, never really gets rid of her uptightness. Even though she tries to redeem herself, which she sort of does, she still remains one of the most uptight characters ever!
So that was it you guys, the Gilmore girls booktag! I hope you enjoyed it, I hope you have a great week and I will get back to you very soon (I hope)!
