I saw Wonder Woman in theatres back in June and I’m absolutely obsessed with anything Wonder Woman (who isn’t?) ever since. I’m so excited to see Justice League when it comes out later this year, but I’m even more excited for Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer, the first book in the DC Icons series, to come out on August 29th. In anticipation for Wonder Woman: Warbringer, today I’ll be doing the Wonder Woman Book tag. This tag was created by Amber of Amber’s Books and More over on Booktube.
Wonder Woman: Your favorite badass female book character– Celaena Sardothein from Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series. When I think of badass female characters, Caleana automatically comes to my mind.
Fantasy Island: A Book Setting you want to escape to– Warcross by Marie Lu. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Warcross back in June and I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL EVERYONE CAN PICK UP THIS BOOK AND WE CAN ALL FANGIRL OVER IT! I just want to jump into Warcross and play this virtual reality game!
London: A Hyped book that let you down – The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Steve Trevor: A Book that has a beautiful Cover and a Great Story (i.e. great personality)– Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. I wrote a four paragraph review about all of my post-Salt to the Sea feelings on Goodreads right after reading it last year, and I still think back on this beautiful and heart-breaking story focused on lost history.
Lasso of Truth: A Book you hated—Nemesis by Brendan Reich. Unfortunately, Nemesis did not live up to the hype for me, and the plot was very different than I expected to be. While I appreciate its Lord of the Flies vibes, this YA novel felt more middle grade to me and I just couldn’t connect to the story and characters.
Wonder Woman’s Shield: A book so sad you need a shield– The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I still cry every reread, don’t worry.
Ares: A Villain that is scary, but you can’t seem to hate– Holland from the V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic trilogy. Holland is one of those villains that you can’t do anything but feel sorry for. He was always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Amazons: A book that you wish had more/better LTBT+ representation– Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (if you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about)
Justice League: What superhero book friends do you tag?
