1. “TALE AS OLD AS TIME” – A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.
The strong, sassy female lead. These are abundant in most genres, particularly YA, but as a female who is strong and sassy (at least, I like to think so) I never tire of this trope. Quite often, they turn out to be a disappointment (i.e. Bella Swan, Katniss Everdeen, America Singer) but I love them anyway.
2. BELLE – A book you bought for its beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch and The Woodcutter by Kate Danley. I adored these covers and the books both turned out to be fabulous.
3. BEAST – A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you.
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider. I sort of bought this on a whim not really thinking about it, and the story turned out to be much better and more emotional than I expected.
4. GASTON – A book everyone loves that you don’t.
Literally anything by John Green. Everyone raves about his books so much. I’ve only read a couple but they were both so *yawn*. Angsty kids with completely unrelatable problems, cheesy quotes everywhere – no thank you.
5. LEFOU – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counter part.
Simon from The Mortal Instruments series. I actually did love Clary, Jace and the others as well, but Simon was my favourite. Especially in the film (I mean, yum).
6. MRS. POTT, CHIP, LUMIER & COGSWORTH – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Any time I’m in a remotely bad mood I can just pick up this book and everything is better. I love it so much. Literally the best book I’ve ever read.
7. “SOMETHING THERE” – A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end.
This has been the case with a lot of books recently. Most notably, The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker.
8. “BE OUR GUEST” – A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner.
Loki from Joanne Harris’ books (he appears in a few). He’s incredibly charismatic and, being the trickster god, that would make for quite an eventful meal.
