Zero to Hero – Name a Character That You Didn’t Think Much Of At First But Ended Up a Favorite

Queen Sabran from The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon.

I’m not really sure why Sabran didn’t click for me straight away, but luckily I had plenty of time to get to know her better and I really came to love her as a character.

The Muses – Name Some Characters/Books/Authors That Inspire You

Character: Esme Weatherwax from the Discworld books. I still want to be Granny when I grow up. She’s so badass.

Book: Camp by L C Rosen. It’s all about being your best self, whoever and however. Plus, shockingly, it actually put me in the mood to try out some outdoor activities, which is sort of a miracle.

Author: Seanan McGuire. Not only is she one of the most prolific authors I know of — that back catalogue! — and able to write across so many different genres, I’ve loved every book of hers that I’ve read.

Megara – Name a Character Who Has to Do Morally Complex Things To Save Themselves/Others/World

Alessandra from The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller.

I wasn’t 100% sold on the way this book played out towards the end, but I loved that Alessandra was so unapologetically ambitious and willing to do whatever she had to to reach her goals.

I really, really love morally grey characters so I’d also mention Miryem from Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, Prunella from Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho and Soraya from Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust.

Hercules – Character That Goes Through a Huge Change

Maia from The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison.

What I love about this book is that Maia goes through lots of huge changes — social, personal, inner growth etc. — but at the same time he remains very true to who he is right from the start.

I Won’t Say (I’m in Love) – Name Your Favorite Romance With the Miscommunication Trope

Camp by L C Rosen.

I mean, that’s literally the whole point of the novel? One of the extremely rare cases where I’ve enjoyed watching two characters who really just needed to sit down and talk to one another.

Hades – Name a Villain That Stole the Show

Lestat de Lioncourt from Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice.

I lost interest in this series after a point, but in the original book I loved Lestat. Clearly I wasn’t the only one since he basically became the star of an awful lot of the following books.

  1. This is such a fun tag! I will definitely need to do it! The Priory of the Orange Tree is on my TBR but I’m SOO intimidated by huge books. I also need to read Seanan McGuire books!

  2. Fun tag! Megara is the best character in the movie, IMO. She’s awesome. (And has the best song, too.)

    My Zero to Hero pick would (currently) be Linus in The House in the Cerulean Sea. I didn’t like him for the first chapter or two. It wasn’t until he started interacting with his cat that I thought I might have been reading him wrong. (And boy was I ever!)

    1. Meg was always one of my favourite ‘princessss’ 😁
      I can definitely see Linus being an acquired taste! The character reminded me a little of a younger A Man Called Ove actually.


      1. My sister used to sing “I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)” for an audition song, so I’ve always been partial to Meg as well. Even if I didn’t like Hercules the movie when it came out as much as I probably would have at a different point in life.
