My heart broke. I didn’t think that 2016 could get worse and here we are.
When my friend told me that Carrie Fisher has passed I started crying and just kept at it for a solid 15 minutes. I cannot even put it into words how much this news hurt me. Star Wars is such a huge part of who I am and this woman was and still is and will forever be a true legend, an inspiration to everyone.
So I wanted to do something special here in our dear Princess Leia’s honor, and here I am with the Star Wars Book Tag.
This was created by Elisabeth and Joana on Youtube and I got the tag off this video here.
This one is for you Carrie ❤
1) R2-D2 – a book that made you laugh out loud
”Furiously Happy” by Jenny Lawson. I have never read anything that funny before and I don’t think any book will be able to make me laugh this hard or out loud again. It was honest and insane…completely me and I loved it.
2) Padme Amidala – Kickbutt female character
Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson books. She is smart and knows what she does. She stands up for her friends and family and isn’t afraid of danger. I really love her. She’s the kind of character who is really tough and independent but also a total softie.
3) Leia Organa – Best or worst love triangle?
The love triangle from the Throne of Glass books or rather the weird situation going on with Celaena’s love life. I don’t know if it is the worst or the best, but it sure as hell is the most confusing and frustrating.
4) Luke Skywalker – rising star author, a new author you’ve discovered and absolutely love
I don’t even know what to say. There hasn’t really been any new author. I guess I’ll say William Shakespeare, because I have in a way discovered him and I have fallen more in love with his works lately. I’ve always known about them but I started reading them last year and honestly it was a complete game changer.
5) Anakin Skywalker – a book or series that started out well and then became bad
The Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth is something that I liked at first. The first book was quite good, but the second wasn’t as good and I didn’t even get to the third one. Same goes for the Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins.
6) Qui-Gon Jinn – Worst character death
Rudy from ”The Book Thief”. That death was too much for me. The way that scene was written in the book with Liesl and the kiss killed me as well and the tears were just never-ending.
7) Han Solo – a book with a lot of sass
Percy Jackson.Hands.Down. Anything by Rick Riordan really goes under this one. The books just crack me up with the sassy and sarcastic characters.
8) Emperor Palpatine- Best world Building?
I am going to pick Ravka. I believe that is the world in which ”Six of Crows” takes place as well as the Grisha trilogy. I haven’t read the Grisha trilogy yet but I was really impressed by the world Bardugo had built up when I read SoC and that made me want to read the trilogy really bad, so I am working on doing that. The world itself was really elaborate and nicely detailed.
9) Ben Kenobi/Obi-Wan Kenobi – a book you went in with low expectations and that blew you away
My favourite book of all time is ”The Shadow of the Wind” by Carloz Ruiz Zafon. I went into it having heard a few good things here and there but was not ready for the epic novel that it really is. Completely left me speechless with the beautiful writing and the complex plot and characters.
10) Yoda – a book that taught you something ot that made you grow
For this one I will actually go back to ”The Book Thief”. That book taught me a lot about love and courage. I also learned a little bit about World War II. A really beautiful story and people should read it. Especially for the narrative…it’s really interesting and special.
11) Darth Vader – favorite villain
Right now it would have to be Mephistopheles from ”Faust” by J.W von Goethe. He was really sassy and just the perfect amount of evil and manipulation ran through his veins. I really enjoyed his character in the play.
These are my answers to the questions.
May the force be with all of you readers and with you, Carrie.
