I was searching for a book tag to do, and I found a Star Wars one. If I hear the phrases “Star Wars” and “book tag” in the same sentence, I’m obviously going to get involved. I found this on Allonsythornraxx’s blog, and the original video of the tag can be seen here. And without further ado:
1. R2D2: A book that made you laugh out loud
Despite how dark this series is, Lady Midnight (and Lord of Shadows) had so many lines that made me crack up in public. I’ll be honest, most of them were Mark’s.
2. Padme Amidala: Kickbutt female character
This is probably not a popular opinion, but I love Calaena/Aelin.
3. Leia Organa: Best or worst love triangle
Normally, I can’t stand love triangles, but the one between Tessa, Will, and Jen actually kept me invested.
4. Luke Skywalker: Rising star author – a new author you’ve discovered and absolutely love
Sabaa Tahir’s first two books are some of my favorite YA fantasy novels, and I can’t wait to see where she takes this series (and her writing career in general).
5. Anakin Skywalker: A book or series that started out well and then became bad
Okay, the later books aren’t necessarily “bad.” That’s a stretch. But the first three books in A Song of Ice and Fire are some of my favorite works of all time, and A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons fell short of that.
6. Qui-Gon Jinn: Worst character death
I don’t even want to talk about it.
7. Han Solo: A book with a lot of sass
The characters from The Mortal Instruments series are probably among the sassiest I’ve come across.
8. Emperor Palpatine: Best world building
The world, the magic system, and the politics of this series are some of the best I’ve ever read.
9. Obi-Wan Kenobi: A book you went into with low expectations that blew you away
I’d heard mixed things about Liane Moriarty’s works as a whole, and the genre didn’t seem like it fit with what I usually read. I was expecting to have a lot of criticism after reading it, but I could barely find anything I didn’t like about it. It’s a fantastic book.
10. Yoda: A book that taught you something or made you grow
I never realized how much sexism plays a role in geeky communities until reading Hurley’s essays. It was an eye opening experience.
11. Darth Vader: Your favorite villain
I love that the Darkling is the type of person you could potentially see yourself following. It’s disturbing to think, but it’s written that way for that purpose – and it’s brilliant.
