Thank you to Melanie over at It’s A Bookish Thing for tagging me in the Hamilton Book Tag way back in March. (I know, right? I’m such a terrible blogger.) Anyway, like most of America, I’m straight #Hamiltrash. Go ahead and throw me in the gutter. I’ll never apologize for my obsession. If you have somehow avoided this amazing musical, I urge you to stop depriving yourself of greatness. After that amazing sweep at the
Hamil…Tony Awards and in celebration of finally purchasing my very own ticket to see the play, I’m more than motivated to do this post. Without further ado, here are my book picks for the Hamilton book tag. I’ll leave you to it!
|THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS: Book world you would put yourself in…|
If I could exist in any book world, I’d find myself at 300 Fox Way. I love the world that Maggie Stiefvater created in The Raven Cycle. I love all the characters. The things about The Raven Cycle world is that it’s not an apocalyptic or dystopian. It’s very grounded in reality, but with just the right touch of magic.
|THE SCHUYLER SISTERS: Underrated female character…|
Cassandra Clare is without a doubt one of the most famous authors in the young adult fantasy realm right now, but most of the attention and adoration is given to The Mortal Instruments and Clary, however, I feel that Tessa [Gray] from the Infernal Devices is the absolute most badass and strong female in the whole Shadowhunter world. I’ll admit that when I first started reading the series, Tessa was a bit irritating because she was really proper and lady-like in Victorian times and she’s just, “Oh my God. A girl in pants! THE HORROR!” I was like, “Stop.” But she quickly turned into a super warrior and unlike Clary, she does what she needs to do for the good of the world and Shadowhunters. She doesn’t risk the lives of millions just to save one person she loves.
