Historical Book Tag

Thank you to Victoria from Addlepates and Book Nerds for tagging me!

Here’s how it works:

  • Link to both the original post on this blog and to the person or people who tagged you
  • For each figure and question, answer with just one book. Some questions have alternate answer options, so feel free to answer both
  • Tag five other bloggers of your choice


First things first, this tag was created by Daniel over at How to Read Books!

1. Marilyn Monroe: The most glamorous book you have ever read.

tumblr_mqucqzNBbz1sch3v1o1_500This one was hard, because I don’t think I’ve read very many books that I could necessarily call “glamorous.” I could go with The Great Gatsby (Book Depository) since glitz and glam is what a large portion of that time period’s culture was all about, but I think I’ll go with something a little less classic and say The Luxe by Anna Godberson (Book Depository). At least in the beginning, the dresses they wear and parties the girls attend sound beyond glamorous. (Fancast image credit to mina-westenra from Tumblr.)

2. Winston Churchill: The best leader within a book and why.

tumblr_nihlk6rmcv1rw7857o1_500Now, I wouldn’t say he’s the best leader, but I do think he’s a good example of one of the best leaders I’ve read in a series, and that is Elder from Across the Universe by Beth Revis (Book Depository). I haven’t gotten around to reading the last book just yet (I’m still so bitter about the cover change), but in the first two books, at least, he’s a pretty great leader.

3. Adolf Hitler: The most ruthless book dictator.

There are quite a few people I could choose to go for with this one, but I’ll have to agree with Victoria — President Snow from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Book Depository) just takes the cake. I dislike him so much that he isn’t even getting an image next to this. Suck on that, Snow.

4. Maya Angelou: The character who brought about the most change, or had the most personal development.

tumblr_mwfix69ekk1rubkkao1_500I know a popular answer for this one is Katniss, so despite wholeheartedly agreeing with that one, I’m going to go ahead and choose another character who I felt had a crapton of personal development, and that is Zara White from The Need Series by Carrie Jones (Book Depository). I won’t give any spoilers, but she definitely had a lot of developing to do in order to fulfill the role that was put on her in the later books. (Image credit to cresscarswell on Tumblr.)

5. Queen Elizabeth II: Your most favourite member of a royal family from within a book.

tumblr_nubhrctfqu1uruhwfo1_540This one is really hard to answer without spoilers, so my actual answer won’t be stated and I’ll instead be choosing my non-spoiler runner up, who’s from the same book series as my original answer. (You can probably guess who I mean if you’ve read it.) Emperor Kai from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer (Book Depository) is who I’ll be picking. I didn’t like him so much by the end of the first book, but up until then, I really enjoyed his character! I haven’t finished this series either (I really don’t want to have to join the waiting game once I get there), but I hope to see more of him once I start reading it again.

6. Albert Einstein: The kookiest, craziest, most bonkers books character ever!

Wow, never thought I’d actually be bringing this series up for a book tag, but the character Alison from Pretty Little Liars by Sarah Shepard wins this one hands down. She was beyond crazy, like damn son. She doesn’t get an image, either, because I didn’t like her. 🙂

7. Brutus: The most betraying character of all the characters.

Okay, this is a major spoiler, but I think most people have already read the books, seen the movies, or are at least aware of this one, so… The most betraying, horrible, cowardly character of all the characters is Peter Pettigrew from Harry Potter. Not even going to link the books because, well, it’s Harry freakin’ Potter.

I hate this man. He ruined everything and he had so much trust given to him. Ugh. Worst Marauder ever.

Way to end on a sour note, huh. Anyway.
