The Raven Cycle Book Tag!

Thanks to the awesome Temecka @ Library of Tomes for nominating me to do this awesome tag about one of my favourite series! I was so excited to do this :)

1. In the books, Maura is the relaxed mom that is Blue’s friend more than an actual mother. Who is your favorite mom character?  

Definitely Molly Weasley from Harry Potter. I mean, how much more badass can you get?

2. Adam wanted to go to Aglionby so he could one day escape where he came from. Have you ever dreamt of living somewhere else? Where? 

I've always wanted to live in London England! I just find it so cool and the culture there is amazing. 

3. In the second book we meet the Gray Man. He is a hit man who loves poetry. Name a book that you thought was going to be one thing but turned out to be something else.

I thought that The Hobbit by: J.R.R. Tolkein would be as mystical and magical as everyone said it was, but it was just plain boring. 

4. Gansey has searched most of his life for a buried king who is promised to grant one wish. What is one wish you would ask Glendower? 

For Hogwarts to be real and for me to be a wizard. 

5. In this series you get to see Greenmantle as a fleshed out character but also as a villain. Name your favorite villain. 

Definitely Voldemort himself! He was so evilly good. 

6. Blue’s got her Raven Boys. Who makes up your bookish team?

1. Harry Potter, because he's Harry Potter. 
2. Gansey, because he's Gansey. 
3. Hermione, because we need some brains. 
4. Katniss, because we need a kickass female. 

7. Ronan is a bad ass with a sensitive side. What book have you read that was action packed but had beautiful emotional scenes as well?

I would say Harry Potter could have been very emotional at times but would obviously pick up at the end! 

8. Noah has a heart of gold. Who has touched your heart recently? 

Can I say Noah? 

9. Calla is a woman who speaks her mind and puts her foot down when necessary. Who is your favorite strong female character? 

This may be repetitive, but always and forever Hermione Granger. 

10. Chainsaw is an awesome Raven boy pet. If you could have one “exotic” pet…what would it be? What would you name it?

I would have a monkey and name it Abu just like in Aladdin. 

Thanks again to Temecka for tagging! I'm tagging all you Raven Cycle fans out there!

  1. Sensing a definite Harry Potter theme here! ;)

    Also, I really liked the Hobbit :O


    1. Haha you guessed it! It was a little too heavy for me :(

  2. I still haven't picked up the Raven Boys but I will at some point! This tag seems really cleverly based on it though :)

    As someone who lives in England I have to disagree with living in London! Far too hectic and expensive to live there, but very nice to visit. The midlands and the north are where it's at! The countryside up here is stunning, and the people also tend to be more polite ;)

    1. Let me know what you think of them! Yeah London is a bit out of my I guess price point, but it is a dream, that's for sure. I've been to the English countryside and I agree that it's beautiful!

  3. HARRY POTTER!!!! I love the answers :D Nd a monkey like Abu, you say? Get yourself one and soon- I want to meet him already!! Loved the tag, Emily. Maybe I'll tag myself for whenever I decide to read The Raven Cycle :P

    1. Lol I'll let you know when I get him!! Now where can I find a monkey... Thanks Ruzaika!

  4. I loved this!! I'm so glad you did this tag so quickly! I love your answers, and I'm so glad to share this tag so it can reach more Raven cycle lovers.

    1. Yes!! I loved it, thanks for tagging me Temecka!

  5. Shamefully I still haven't read this series! But given these questions, it sounds super interesting! Definitely like the exotic pet monkey - although personally I really want a pet Wombat. They just look so cuddly! Sadly though I live in China and I'm more afraid people would eat it ...

    1. You should totally read this and experience it's awesomeness! Wombats are absolutely adorable too!

  6. Yesss Molly Weasley is the best fictional mom out there. Oh no! I'm sorry that The Hobbit didn't work out for you. I haven't read the book yet (#shameonme) but I've seen all the movies. Thanks for sharing, Emily!

    1. I didn't like the books or movies :( they were so boring to me!

  7. I haven't read any LOTR books, but the films are so boring! They're just way too long and I can never manage to get through just one. I really need TRC after reading this tag!
