It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag, so I wanted to jump back on this train with one of my favorite subjects – musicals! I’m a theater major, and I love finding the places where theater and books overlap. I wasn’t able to find the originator of this tag, but the farthest back I’ve traced it to is vivalabooklife! So let’s get started!
Wicked: favorite fictional friendship
I really love Cath and Reagan in Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Their relationship is so unique, but they just get each other! They balance each other out really nicely!
Sweeney Todd: favorite villain
The Darkling. Hands down. He’s so enigmatic and beautiful. I find his character so interesting, but weirdly lovable!
Phantom of the Opera: favorite love triangle
I’ve always found that I enjoy the Katniss & Peeta/Gale triangle. I thought that both couples went through so much that it added a really interesting element to the series. I also enjoyed that unlike other love-triangles I’ve read, her choice was made for her because one of the members just opted out of that narrative. I’ve always found that to be a refreshing element to the storyline.
The Lion King: favorite sidekick
I think he would be offended for being called a sidekick, but definitely Cassian from the ACOTAR series (specifically books 2 and 3 – he did not appear in book 1). His character is so badass, but also lighthearted and full of humor. Definitely one of my favorites overall
Grease: least favorite ending
The Sun Is Also A Star. I…really hated the ending. I don’t like it when unrealistic things happen in novels, and this one just took the cake when it comes to having an ending that is so preposterous and inconceivable. I couldn’t stand it.
Matilda: favorite book ➙ movie adaptation
PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER!! I will fight anyone who says that there is a better film adaptation of any book ever. It is spot on wonderful and I won’t hear anything else on the subject.
Les Miserables: favorite fictional death *spoiler alert*
This is tough. I think the most satisfying death I’ve read was Amarantha in ACOTAR. As much as I absolutely hate Tamlin, seeing him rip into her was a little kernel of life (see what I did there?)
Well I hope you guys liked my book tag! Tell me in the comments what your favorite musical is, and what you’d choose for these tags!
