The Bennet Sisters: A Mixed Bag
A book or series with an eclectic cast of characters
Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy!! This is a looooong series that I’m reread this year and I still adore it! It’s so fun, filled with quips, magic and fighting scenes growing from Middle Grade to Young Adult as the series goes on. Not enough people on the internet read this series!
Charlotte Lucas: The Best Friend
A dependable book/series, tv show or film you can always turn to
I was pretty tempted to use Skulduggery for this answer as well. But instead I’ll turn to screens for my answer. I don’t watch a lot of tv or films, but Elementary and Doctor Who are staples for me. And the Narnia movies, as well as the MCU, are ones I’ll always love!
Mr Darcy: The Unexpected Surprise
A book or series that you didn’t originally like but grew to love.
Immediately The Crow by Alison Croggon, the 3rd book in the Pellinor series, comes to mind. It was my least favourite as a teen when I first read the books, and I would reread the others all the time but I barely went back to this one. I went back to it at the end of 2020 and I discovered that I actually really love it now! It’s such a beautiful book and I’m so glad that I’ve changed my mind!
Lady Catherine de Bourg: The Intimidating Aristocrat
A book or series that intimidates you
The Centuries Trilogy by Ken Follett! For some reason I own all three massive books in hardback, even though I’ve never finish a Follett book in my life. They’re all at least 800 pages, all historical fiction, and they’re all probably going to be on my tbr for a while…
Mr Bingley: Honest Yet Easily Led
A character you think deserves a lot of love
Why do I never hear people talking about Pierre from War and Peace? (or Natasha but I’ll stick to just one character for now) He gets so much character development through the book and I know that War and Peace is a chunky one (understatement of the year) but it’s also a really well known classic so I would’ve thought we’d hear more about some of its characters!
Mr Collins: Awkward and a little socially inept.
What hyped or popular book/series have you not yet read?
There are so many books that I could put here! I’m going to go with The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. The Daevabad Trilogy sounds like an amazing fantasy series that I really need to get my teeth into! I’ve just gotta buy it first 😂
The Gardiners: Steady Voices of Reason
A character from any book, film, or tv series that you would turn to for advice
Nana Jasmine from the Noughts & Crosses series by Malorie Blackman. But only by the third book. She starts off having to deal with a lot of internal demons but by the third book in this series, without giving any spoilers, she is 100% the person I would turn to first with any question I had.
Mr Wickham: The Deceiver
A book that did not reach your expectations
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid. I’m not sure what I had been expecting from this book, but it certainly wasn’t two privileged people complaining about their lives with barely a plot to sustain it. Such a disappointment.
Georgiana Darcy: Shy and Naive but Friendly
An under-hyped or represented book that you really love
Okay we all know I have a million and one different books and series I could recommend here! I do read hyped books, but I also read a lot of underhyped ones! The Legends of the Godkissed Continent by AB Endacott is an interwoven series which covers all four countries in this fantasy world
Colonel Foster’s Regiment: Sure to liven up any party!
What book or series would you always recommend?
Surely this is the easy one? It’s got to be the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon! Especially after rereading it at the end of 2020 it really solidified my love for the story and I want more people to pick it up!
