- Thank whoever nominated you (maybe you’re bitter that you have another tag to do on top of the billions you already need to do (#relatable), still though. Someone thought of you. Be thankful. At least pretend to be.)
- Credit the creator of this tag; Michelle at The Writing Hufflepuff.
- There’s no limit of how many aesthetics you can make for a question, but think of your poor readers.
- Make your own aesthetics, please don’t steal them from someone else. Also what’s the fun in that?
I was bored, and I felt like changing my pace a bit, and so I decided to do the Book Aesthetics Tag!
I really wanted to do the Blogger Aesthetic tag/award but I thought that I should probably wait to be tagged for that one. ;;
A warning in advance: This is my first, and I mean my very first time creating aesthetic boards, so I’m sorry if these aren’t up to snuff. :I
Also, I own nothing. I found most of these pictures on Pinterest, and the rest I found on Google.
Favourite book of the year
Hate List, by Jennifer Brown
I have quite a few books that would fit the “favorite of the year” description, but I decided to go with Hate List because I feel like it’s the most generalized out there. It really impressed me with its empathy and realistic characters, and it’s important to understanding the psychology behind school shootings.
Character you relate to a lot
Simon from Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli
Honestly, there wasn’t anybody else. Even though Simon and I aren’t exactly alike (though he is the one that introduced me to Elliott Smith <3), I relate to him on a spiritual level. We have the same personality, I think, though he’s more confident in himself.
A character you look up to
Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
I was really impressed with Pride and Prejudice and I loved Elizabeth on the spot. She’s smart, knows who she is, and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do, even if it’s what’s accepted by society. She’s not perfect, as seen by her initial prejudice toward Mr. Darcy, but she’s still the kind of woman I hope to grow up to be.
An underrated gem
What Angels Fear, by C.S. Harris
I was extremely impressed with What Angels Fear and was surprised when I found out that it wasn’t as popular as I thought it would be. It’s a really invigorating and complex mystery, set during the later years of the Georgian era under the reign of King George III. The history was so well-researched and detailed, and it didn’t hurt that Sebastian was such a strong protagonist who followed his own rules. It’s my favorite historical fiction to date.
Dearly, Departed, by Lia Habel
I read this one years ago, so my rating can’t be trusted. I get it: zombies don’t make good boyfriends, so a zombie romance is ridiculous and was probably just swept up in the overwhelming zombie craze a few years back. Still, I don’t think it was all that bad. I remember liking the characters and finding the world of New Vitoria very interesting.
A character that deserves more love
Rhy Maresh from A Darker Shade of Magic, by V.E. Schwab
I don’t think people hate Rhy – I just don’t think they love him as much as I do. I understand that he wasn’t as much of a character in the first book, but I adored the small parts that he had and I cared about him very much. I was attracted to his personality, from his bubbly, flirtatious side to the dark layers beneath. He was my favorite character throughout all three books. Personally, I love him more than Kell.
An underrated OTP
Alex and Miles from Made You Up, by Francesca Zappia
It’s no secret that I love this book, but please do not underestimate just how much. Re-reading books is a rarity for me, and I have to really, really love a book in order to do it – as seen by my thrice read The Raven Cycle. I re-read this book earlier this year to hype myself up for Eliza and Her Monsters, and I fell in love with it all over again. I love the dynamic between Alex and Miles, that subtle line between “I can’t stand you” and “I’m desperately in love with you”.
All right, I’m done~.
Please only do it if you want to.
Until next time!
