In celebration of the second season of Umbrella Academy coming out on Netflix, I’ve decided to create a book tag based on the main characters on the show!
The series is one of my favorites 😍 If you like dry sarcastic humor, supernatural anti-heroes, secret government projects, and dysfunctional families then you’ll love it.
Klaus is the BEST hands down. Fight me.
Number One : A book that is under-appreciated
A List of Cages by Robin Roe
This book is amazing in so many ways. The friendship between Julian and Adam is so wholesome and one that I do not see much of in contemporary YA.
Number Two : A book featuring an anti-hero
AIDAN – The Illuminae Series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
“I am not good. Nor am I evil. I am no hero. Nor am I a villain.”
AIDAN is one of the most complex characters you may ever read about. You’ll find yourself questioning your morality the more you get to listen to his rationale!
Number Three : A book featuring opposites attract trope
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Will and Louisa are as different as Fearless-country-Taylor and Reputation-era-Taylor.
Number Four : A book with a sassy character
Celaena Sardothien – Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J Maas
This woman breathes sass, eats sarcasm for breakfast, and washes it down with a glass of wit before flexing her comebacks.
Number Five : A children’s book you’d still read as an adult
Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne
It’s been established: my spiritual animal and childhood fav is Winnie. No matter how many times I read the book or watch the Disney movies it never fails to put a smile on my face.
Number Six : A book you wish had a sequel
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
The concept: Imagine a more present generation where Coraline is a grandma now and for old time’s sake they visit her old house and her grandchildren unlock the evils of “The Other World” again.
Orrrrrr “The Other World” escapes and infiltrates the devices of the grandchildren just like Anonymous.
Number Seven : A book with a twist you didn’t see coming
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
Cha-Cha : A book that features a badass female villain
The Wicked Witch of the West – Wicked by Gregory Maguire
If you read this version of World of Oz, you would come across a great dynamic of one of the most iconic villains of all time. I loved how the author reimagined her.
Not to mention the musical soundtrack is to die for!
Hazel : A book with a different cover than the actual story
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
A pack of dominoes on a cover did nothing to convey the wretchedness that would envelop my heart at the end of the book. Thanks Zusak 🙂
Pogo : A book/series you made yourself complete even though you didn’t really like it
The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I had so many issues with this series, literally cannot believe I wasted my money on this.
And Mare Barrow is one of the worst heroines in YA history. There I said it.
That’s it for the book tag! If you decide to do the book tag ping me, or tag me with an @ or #umbrellaacademyxnecblog. As always, happy reading!
