TAG: Nightmare Before Christmas
Hey guys, before we get started I do have to say, despite it being named Tim Burton's Nightmare before Christmas, it was indeed directed by Henry Selick who did an amazing job on this and other works that keep getting credited to Tim Burton so just an FYI for those that did not know that but let's get on with the tag.
Jack: A Book With A Character Who Longs For More
Gideon from Gideon the Ninth is definitely a character who longs for more. I mean at the beginning of the book we see her trying to escape her life that she really hates and only stays in the end due to a bargain made for her freedom after the competition for Lyctor ends.
Sally: A Book With A Character Who Loves Someone And Gets Them In The End
Romancing Mr. Bridgerton comes to mind for this prompt. When we meet Penelope in the first Bridgerton book, The Duke and I, she is seen swooning over Colin and feels that she is unworthy of any love but in the third book, Colin comes to realise his true feelings about her, rather than being friends, he wants a relationship with her.
Zero: A Book With A Loyal Sidekick
A book with a loyal sidekick would be Nevernight by Jay Kristoff in the form of Mr Kindly. Mr Kindly is the ultimate sidekick just with how much snark and sass he gives us.
Oogie Boogie: A Book With A Wicked Villain
The Diviners series truly has a book with a wicked villain. The King of Crows is somebody not to be messed with but yet our team of diviners have had enough of him and decide to take him on in a battle throughout the 4 books.
Halloween Town: A Creepy Book
I don’t read many creepy books so alas, I cannot think of one in this instance.
Christmas Town: A Warm, Fuzzy Book
A warm and fuzzy book for me would be Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow. This book is a book about the wonders that can take place in a world, even when you are blamed for everything wrong in people’s lifes and are apparently cursed, something great may happen to you. I find that middle grade books tend to give me this feeling a lot as they are often filled with hope and wonder as a young child starts to imagine what they could be.
What’s This? A Book That Surprised You
The City We Became is a book that surprised me. I knew I would like it purely because of the premise, but I did not realise how much I would enjoy it. The premise is one that I knew would lend to an audiobook but it truly works so well.
