So I’ve obviously missed the hype for this. God bless those of you who actually clicked to read this, SO MANY MONTHS LATER. lol.
Actually, the theme for my school and classroom this year is superheros, and I just started school on Thursday, SO I SAY THIS FITS! There.
Samantha at Modern Witch’s Bookshelf did this one back when Endgame came out, and I probably bookmarked it because I was so hyped about that movie. Geez, when is it coming out on DVD so I can watch it again??? (Watch it’s already out and I’m just that out of things…) In light of cleaning out my tag folder and a Superhero themed classroom, now seemed like as good a time as any to do this tag.
Iron Man – A book that made you laugh out loud
Where’d You Go Bernadette? might just be the funniest book I have ever read. If you haven’t read it, you REALLY should.
Captain America – A book that sends a positive message
I’m not sure this quite counts as a “positive” message, but I felt Young Jane Young to be so empowering. The women in the novel are so strong, but each in different ways, and they don’t expect a certain *kind* of strength. My favorite thing, though, is the book forgives the women in it for the mistakes they’ve made, and allows them to grow from them.
Thor – A book with a character’s strength you admire
I love Jane Eyre’s quiet strength. In an era when women were expected to be weak, Charlotte Bronte wrote a woman with a mind and will of her own who demanded to be treated like a human. She sticks to her principles, even when it would maybe be easier not to. I admire her so much.
Black Widow – A book with a kick-ass female protagonist
Zelie is SOOOOO amazing. I think my favorite thing about her is that her badassery is actually kind of a problem for her, and she doesn’t know how to turn it off. But at the same time, she is GOING to fight for what she knows is right.
Hulk – A book that made you incredibly angry
Have I published my review of Heartland yet? I think I have, you can read my ranting there.
Hawkeye – An underrated book that you think more people should pay attention to
GUYS! Why haven’t you read The Psychology of Time Travel????? It’s probably the best time travel book I’ve ever read (yes, ever), and it’s queer, and it’s a mystery, and it has great characters, and it does all the things you want from a SciFi book. It’s so so soooooooo good!
Black Panther – A book that showcases another culture
This was my favorite thing about With the Fire on High. I loved that Emoni was representing from multiple cultures, both Puerto Rican and African-American. She lives in a diverse Philly neighborhood, which is basically a culture all its own. She also travels to Spain in the novel, and some of that culture is in the book as well. And throughout Emoni is emphatic that being Puerto Rican doesn’t make her any less black, and being black doesn’t make her any less Puerto Rican. This was such a beautiful book, and the cultures leaped off the page.
Spider-Man – Favorite new book of the year
With the Fire on High! Y’all, it’s so good! Go read it!
*BONUS* Loki – A book with a twist or surprise that tricked you
It’s hard to surprise me, but the ending of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing came as a complete shock. Which, I don’t think it was supposed to? But I’m just really gullible. Also I don’t always made predictions when I’m reading, so I guess I should fail third grade.
Since I wasn’t tagged and since Endgame is so far passed, I won’t tag anyone. But if you’re interested, I TAG YOU!
Also, why isn’t Captain Marvel on here? *pouts*
