Kiss, Marry, Kill: where we decide the fate of book characters

Hi friends! It’s not Valentine’s Day just yet and, to be honest, I don’t particularily care for this day, either, but today, one day early since I’ve already got something planned out for the 14th, I thought I’d do something fun and chill and celebrate some love, anyway.

By kissing, marrying and killing some book characters.

Okay. I admit that it sounds terrible, but just you wait. I invited my co-blogger and amazing sister to participate with me, so…. this will be even more complicated.

How does it work? I’m going to be picking three book characters from three different books at random, and my sister is going to have to decide between kissing, killing or marrying said character. Then, she’s going to do the same for me. This will be really, really complicated, I can feel it.

We are participating in this fun Kiss, Marry, Kill book tag that we saw on Kat’s blog!

πŸ“– Round 1

Marie:For this round, I’m going to pick April (An Absolutely Remarkable Thing), Charlie (Heartstopper) and SΓ©verin (The Gilded Wolves).

Nyx:Β I’m definitely marrying Charlie, he’s so sweet he would make a great husband I think. I would kiss Severin, he’s got that kind of bad boy vibe am I right?! I would kill April…she annoyed me more than once, sorry!

πŸ“– Round 2

Nyx:Β I’m going to start withΒ Ali (Pretty Little Liars), Blair (Gossip Girl) andΒ Bella (Twilight).

Marie: This is already tricky… hm…I’m definitely marrying Blair, because she’s a queen and I love her. I guess I’ll go with kissing Ali and killing Bella, because between these two, Bella gets on my nerves the most at the moment?

πŸ“–Round 3

Marie: Next up are…. Avery (The Thousandth Floor), Helene (An Ember In The Ashes) and Levana (The Lunar Chronicles). That’s a terrible one, oops.

Nyx:Β Hum…though one, thank you sister! I’m marrying Avery, she’s not really strong, I mean I think I could walk all over her…gosh that was mean haha! I would kiss Helene, she seems like a driven character. And I would kill Levana without a doubt.

πŸ“– Round 4

Nyx:Β Okay I’m being really nasty for this round, sorry! I’m pickingΒ Peeta (The Hunger Games), Zane (Pretties) and Ron (Harry Potter).

Marie: Well thank you… this is a TERRIBLE round why are you doing this to me?! I spent like, ten minutes staring at this and I still don’t know. Okay let’s do this quickly and painfully, eyes closed… I’m marrying RonΒ  (can’t help that, sorry), kissing Peeta and killing Zane.


πŸ“– Round 5

Marie: Ronan (The Raven Boys), AIDAN (Illuminae), Archer (The Reader)

Nyx: I would marry Archer…he’s so sweet, protective and strong! Perfect husband material I think. I would kiss Ronan, he’s flawed and human and that’s really attractive! I would kill AIDAN…I mean yeah, I think anyone would, no?

πŸ“– Round 6

Nyx: Lara Jean (To All The Boys I’ve Loved), Miles (Looking For Alaska) and Hideo (Warcross).

Marie: Hmm… I think I’m going with marrying Lara Jean, because out of the three I LOVE HER the most. I think I’ll pick Miles to kiss and Hideo to kill because… I can’t understand Hideo right now and I AM FRUSTRATED. Sorry.

πŸ“– Round 7

Marie: Khalid (The Wrath and The Dawn), Simon (Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda), Adam (Shatter Me)

Nyx: Hum…I’m marrying Simon (yeah I know he’s gay…but maybe he can meet someone and I can meet someone and we can still be happy together?!). I’m kissing Khalid for the thrills it would give haha! I’m killing Adam, ughh he really gets on my nerves.

πŸ“– Round 8:

Nyx:Β Let’s go with Kenji (Shatter Me), Marguerite (A Thousand Pieces of You) and Cress (The Lunar Chronicles).

Marie: I kind of want to marry Cress, because she’s just so like me and I can relate to her so much and, I don’t know we’d be on the same page, I think? Also, I just can’t marry Kenji because I can’t imagine him being that kind of person. I’d definitely kiss him though… that leaves Marguerite to be killed. Sorry, but… by the end you kind of bothered me, too.

πŸ“– Round 9:

Marie: Jimmy (I Was Born For This), Mara (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer), Kaz (Six of Crows)

Nyx:Β I would marry Jimmy, I get him in so many ways. I would kiss Kaz, I adore him but he’s not really husband material is he?! Of course, I would kill Mara. I really don’t care for her.

πŸ“– Round 10:

Nyx:Β And for the last one…Tim (The Boy Most Likely To), Col (Impostors) and Brooks (Nothing Left To Burn).

Marie: NOTHING LEFT TO BURN AHHHHH. Sorry. I love this book so, so much. Okay so…. I’m going to kill Brooks first, because no no no no no no go away. Between these last two.. I think I have a soft spot for both, but I might go with marrying Tim and kissing Col, because you know, if Tim is a mess, Col is too important to marry. I’d be terrified ha.

I hope you had as much fun reading this as we had doing it! If you feel like participating in this tag, feel free to, we’d love to see your answers!

  1. Ooh, round four was hard, but I think you made the right choices. I love playing this game, especially when I pick out characters at random and end up with super weird combinations. I also love Rip It or Ship It, which can get . . . interesting, to say the least. xD

    1. Oh thank you so much, it was a hard one for sure πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ this is such a fun tag to do, feel free to do it (again?) if you’d like to! πŸ˜€ It’s always so much fun haha πŸ™‚


  2. That was super fun! A few characters I love made their way in here, and I have to admit one thing I’d have done differently was not killing Hideo (marry MAYBE at least kiss for me) but that’s all about preference! ☺️ I have no idea how I’d handle choosing between characters haha

    1. Ohh thank you, so happy you enjoyed it! It was a hard one ahah, sometimes I just can’t pick between these characters. I’m curious to read Wildcard to see what Hideo is really like haha πŸ™‚
      You should do this tag as well if this inspires you, feel free to! I’d love to see your picks πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for your sweet comment! ❀

      1. It was complicated for me and I am SO indecisive as well πŸ˜‚ since I made choices for my sister and she did for me, we just took a look at each other’s goodreads shelves, but there is an option to do that for yourself and pick books at random by using goodreads, going to your books read shelf and sort the books at random and then, you just pick the books that come up first πŸ™‚

  3. Okay, lets be real, but Marguerite should have died in the Firebird series anyway haha

    It’s so cool that you chose to do this tag together. It was so much fun to read πŸ˜€ I am pretty sure I will do it for Valentine’s Day again (it has sort of become a tradition) , but I am not yet sure how to spin it so that it isn’t just the same old same old.

    1. Thank you so much 😊 Glad you agree with my choice, AIDAN just had to go! YEEEES for Kaz, that’s exactly how I see it 😏 I must admit I was torn, Khalid would have also made a great husband I agree with you 😁


  4. I love this tag, and love both your answers for these too. πŸ˜€
    I’d definitely kill Levena, I mean is there any other answer for that one, and also I agree with killing Hideo as well (especially if you’re just going off Warcross). I can’t believe you’d kill Zane though Marie, but that was a tough round and I’d be struggling with that one too. In fact I’m not sure I would have chosen any differently tbh.
    Also Nyx I’d probably marry Simon (even though he’s gay) and kill Adam (I’m really not a fan of him in the Shatter Me series, I’ve only read the first three books but he wasn’t a good character at the end of the day). :/
    Great post, and again great answers for this tag. πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. It was SO HARD I was so sad and I’m still sad and frustrated that I had to kill Zane,… I didn’t want to, I love him so much, so much more than David in that series, too haha ❀
      Thank you so much, Beth!! ❀ ❀

  5. I had so much fun reading through your answers! I weirdly would want to kiss AIDAN because it sounds entertaining.

    I was really proud that I had read at least one of the books in each round, even though for most I had read two or more. I think that hearing your responses to Kiss Marry Kill gave me a better understanding of how you felt about the characters for all the books, especially for the ones that I hadn’t read sprinkled throughout this tag, than any review or tag could have ever done!

    Great post! (And I didn’t find it complicated or confusing at all!)

    1. Awww, thank you so so much, it makes us really happy to see you enjoyed our post! 😍😍 Yeees, bye bye AIDAN, there was no other choice possible! Oh my…yeees, baking and eating cookies with Lara Jean, I’m totally in 😁 For round 8, I would have picked exactly the same than my sister 😊 Thanks again for the kind words 😘


  7. I loved your sisters dynamic! I am so down for kissing Kenji haha, and Cress would be a great partner, she’s so funny. That said, this tag is so complicated because I really like the book characters who have ended up together and I don’t want to interrupt that. even Levana I feel some compassion for haha. anyway great post!

    1. Hahaha, yeees so violent πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ YEEES, kiss the dangerous ones but marry the sweethearts is the best strategy 😏 Lara Jean is queeeeen 😍😍 Thanks for stopping by 😘


  9. Happy Valentine’s Day, Marie & Nyx!
    We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day at this time of the year around here – ours is only in June -, but it felt like the fitting thing to say.
    Kiss, Marry & Kill tags are always so much fun! I’m surprised Marie would marry Ron, to be honest. If it was me, I think I’d choose to kill him instantly, hahah. Also, I’m not sure if I’d kill AIDAN. It was not the best, but I liked how dramatic it was. Also, it almost made me cry in the last few pages of Obsidio, so I’m not sure if I’d kill it. I am not certain if I’d want to marry or kiss it either, though, hahah.
    That was fun! I’d certainly marry Lara Jean as well!

    1. Ohh it is funny that it is not on the same month at all where you live! Thank you so much, Lais❀️
      Ohhhh no really?! I love Ron so much ahah. I haven’t read Obsidio just yet, so maybe that’s why.. hmm you are making me curious to get to it now☺️
      Thank you so much!!


  10. Ahh, I loved this! It was so cute to see of y’all’s responses and commentary.πŸ˜‚You had a few hard decisions there, haha- I’m so happy you decided to marry Ron, though, haha! I’m glad I wasn’t the one doing this because I would have not been able to pick on a ton of these. XD

  11. Hahaha this was so much fun! Marguerite was totally kind of annoying haha, I would do the same, oops. πŸ˜‚ Also yes I probably would marry Lara Jean too haha. I didn’t particularly like Miles though? πŸ™ˆ Have you read Wildcard? I loved reading your answers!

    1. Ahhh I’m glad to hear that haha, Marguerite wasn’t the best character haha.

  12. This is FUN! πŸ˜€ I’d definitely aslo kill April. She’s insufferable. πŸ™„ Round 2 would be the same as your picks although I haven’t read the book nor watched Gossip Girl. I’d kill Levana and kiss Helene, but I won’t marry Avery bcs I haven’t met her. I’d marry Peeta and kiss Ron. Also, I’d marry Aidan! πŸ˜‚ and kiss Ronan. But I won’t kill Zane and Archer bcs I don’t know both of them. Round six is a tough one. I’d marry Hideo, kiss Lara Jean, and kill Miles. 😒 Out of all these, I’m positive I’m marrying KHALID. 😍 I’d kiss Adam and kill Simon. πŸ™ˆ Oh I don’t mind having a polyamorous relationship with Khalid and Kaz. πŸ˜‚

  13. Fun post! Killing bella swan definitely makes the most sense πŸ˜‰ haha makes sense to kill levana and aidan too (though I have a soft spot for aidan). I’d marry lara jean and simon too. I relate to cress so much too. And very much agree about kaz
