Hi guys, how are you? I hope you’re having an amazing week so far! Well, if you didn’t know it yet, I love Gossip Girl, both the books and the tv show. My preference goes to the written story, obviously, but I have to say, the first seasons of the tv show were very good. Do you watch Gossip Girl? Do you like it? 🙂
I have to thank the awesome Shelumiel, for tagging me for “You Know You Love Me”. Check out his blog if you have time, you won’t be disappointed! Here goes for some Gossip Girl characters, some “it” books, and the Dan Humpfreys’ of YA stories…
SERENA VAN DER WOODSEN
The “It” book of YA fiction
There are so many places I could go with this one…but I think I will take the path I always LOVE to go through, which is, green. (check out that pun, wow, haha!). I would go with John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars.
A book/character you love to hate.
Damn, is there any chance I can go with Gossip Girl books for that one?! Because, I mean, who doesn’t love to hate every character in that book, especially Serena Van Der Woodsen?
A roller coaster ride of a book
Hm, there are so many different books I could choose from…right now, I’m thinking about The 5th Wave. This is such an extraordinary story, kind of hard to get into for me, at first, but, damn. Ups and downs and so many action, it really is a roller coaster.
A book cover eye candy
If they had an award for the most beautiful book covers, I would give it to Magonia, and A Thousand Pieces of You. Those two covers are so beautiful, it takes my breath away, and I could look at them forever…almost as much as I could look at Nate 😉
A character that went through the most drastic transformation, for better or worse.
Drastic, I’m not sure, but for this, I am thinking of Juliette in the Shatter Me series. We’ve seen her evolve from day one, from the first book, where we meet this strange, secluded girl, to one of the strongest protagonist I have ever encountered in YA fiction.
A book you think deserves more love than it gets.
All the awards to Solitaire, by Alice Oseman. It did get some pretty amazing love, and great reviews, but I still think everyone should read that book, like it, and love it, for the deeply understanding Alice Oseman has of teenagers.
A book that doesn’t have a lasting impression.
RUFUS & LILY
An OTP that could have been.
Candace and Gat, from We were liars, maybe? I mean…*sobbing*.
A villain who’s killing it with villainy.
IF YOU DID NOT READ RED QUEEN, DO NOT READ WHAT IS COMING NEXT and please skip to the next paragraph. I would go with freaking Maven all the way. I mean, damn it, this guy just killed me in this book, and, DAMN, just, damn it.
A book you always mistake for something else.
I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, for that category, so I will choose a book that didn’t meet my expectations. In Faking Perfect, I expected a sweet contemporary romance, with endearing characters, but I was mistaken and disappointed.
A book/character you want to like more than you actually do.
A favorite sidekick character.
For this one, I would go with Kitty, from the Jenny Han duology, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. She’s just so, completely true to herself, always speaks out her mind, and I find her so amazing.
A Prince-Charming-turned-A-plus-jerk character.
Wow, this one is so hard, I actually got no one…. any suggestions? 🙂
Did you, or are you watching Gossip Girl? Who’s your favorite character? The one you can’t stand? And, most importantly, what would your answers be to those questions? Let me know everything in comments! :)27
