Congratulations to Mason over at The Amazing Bookshelf’s channel for creating a tag that was basically made for me. I love, love the Big Hero 6 movie so much. I mean, I even have the Hiro Pop Funko! figurine. It’s just got everything I love in a fun movie, plus asian representation and female scientists! I shouldn’t even have to praise a movie for having diversity but alas..
Hiro: You’re Favorite Genius or Prodigy
I’m actually going to go with Mason’s answer and say Lisbeth Salander from the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. She’s got some badass hacking skills and her fighting and survival skills are possibly even more badass which many times borders on the extremely violent side… I’ve also enjoyed reading the ways in which she got out of a situation and proceeded to get revenge on her wrongdoer.
Tadashi: Character Death You Still Aren’t Over
Tadashi, I’m still not over your death..also still not over how good-looking of a cartoon you are *_* SPOILERS FOR A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY TRILOGY BY LIBBA BRAY I’m still not over Kartik’s death..It came as such a surprise to me. He was such a sweet, kind character and I just wanted Gemma to be happy too..sigh..I didn’t think you had it in you Ms. Bray, but apparently you did…
Baymax: Favorite Light, Warm, Comfy Book
I don’t know if I have a favorite but I love The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller. It’s just a really cute and entertaining story about a geek girl and I probably read it in like 3 hours max so it was quick too.
Gogo: Favorite Snarky, Smart-Mouthed Character
My most recent favorite is Sharzhad from The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. She is just absolutely amazing and all her comebacks are always on point. She doesn’t take shit from anyone and I pity the person who crosses her in a battle of wits.
Wasabi: Favorite Swordsman, Swordswoman, or Swordsperson
None other than Percy Jackson..but come on guys, a pen that can turn into a sword and that you can never lose? Enough said. I could be writing something and I could slash a monster except when I could use that irl, I wouldn’t know.
Honey: Favorite Colorful Book Cover
I love, love, love the new cover of Unteachable by Leah Raeder. I also feel like it’s so different from other New Adult covers that feature people kissing on the cover or a naked guy on the cover. I love all the different colors in her hair and how the color’s are sharpened so it reminds of me neon glowsticks. My favorite New Adult cover for my favorite New Adult book. If you’re interested, here is my review.
“You can call it love, or you can call it freefall. They’re pretty much the same thing.”
Fred: Favorite Creature or Monster from a Book
Squallwhales from Magonia by Maria Headley. I want a squallwhale in my life. They’re basically whales in the sky that make clouds and rain. What an awesome concept..
Yokai: Villain Motivations You Just Can’t Get Behind
It sounds kind of bad but I can never get behind the “I lost someone dear to me now I need to get my revenge”. Maybe it’s been overdone in my experience but I always feel like it’s contrived backstory just to add more depth to a character.
San Fransokyo: Favorite Original World or Setting
I love the world in Beyond the Deepwoods by Chris Riddell and Paul Stewart. It’s so dark and whimsical but so imaginative at the same time. There are creatures like rotsuckers and caterbirds and the deepwoods are just brimming with mystery and darkness. You never know what creatures or wildlife you’re going to encounter next and I think it’s considerably scary for a children’s/middle grade book.
I tag Summer @ Xingsings because I know you love Big Hero 6
and I tag anyone else who likes Big Hero 6! =)
