R.I.P It or Ship It Book Tag

Okay everyone, it’s been awhile since I’ve done a tag. I know there are a few that I’ve been tagged in that need doing, HOWEVER, I’ve seen this one done a few times and it seems like fun! I’ve actually steered away from tags that require you to write down a bunch of characters names…because I’m lazy. That’s pretty much my only reason. Yes, I know. That’s a dumb reason. But I’m sure some of you agree, right? RIGHT?! Ehem. But yes. Moving on.

The Rulez:

  • Write names of book characters on little slips of paper and toss them into some sort of container. There’s no required amount, so however many you want.
  • Pick two of those names out of the container.
  • Either you see those two individuals becoming a lovely couple, or you don’t. Pretty simply, yeah?

Let’s go!


Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket) & Citra Terranova (Scythe)

Hmmm…this is such an interesting pair. Tohru is so sweet and innocent, I’m not too sure if Citra would be able to handle her. I feel like she wouldn’t be able to put up with Tohru’s ditsy-ness, to be honest. But I also feel like I can totally picture Citra coming home and Tohru cooking her a nice meal after a long day of gleaning people.  You know what, I’m going to go with…

SHIP IT.

Citra needs some innocence in her life.


Eliot “Eli” Cardale (Vicious) & Tessa Gray (Infernal Devices)

Noooo. I wanted to put Eli in the mix because I saw so many people put Victor. But him with Tessa? Just…no. There’s no way Tessa would put up with Eli’s superior bullshit. She would definitely put him in his place. And he’d probably try to kill her for it. So, coming to that conclusion, I’m going to…

RIP IT.

Ryan Foxheart (Tales From Verania) & Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)

Although Ryan would prefer a certain wizard over a witch, I can actually see this ship sailing. Both characters are smart and great to have along during any sort of shenanigan they’re thrown into, although Hermione would most likely disapprove. I could also picture Hermione telling Ryan to stop posing, as he is wont to do, and him just getting all flustered about it. I really think they’d be adorable together. And with that, I’d…

SHIP IT.

Will Herondale (Infernal Devices) & Nita (Not Even Bones)

This is such an interesting pair. And I like it! Both characters seem to have issues with their moral compass at times, but ultimately they are decent people that simply get thrown into shitty situations and will do what they must to survive. Nita dissects supernatural creatures, and Will hunts them. If that doesn’t say power couple, I don’t know what does. Although, Nita likes her peace and quiet so having Will around constantly blabbing away may get on her nerves. But still. I’d…

The Jackal (Red Rising) & Sam Haversford (Tales From Verania)

No. No no no no no. Not happening. I can’t say too much about the Jackal, because of spoilers and all that, but this is definitely a ship that would not sail. It would sink so, so fast. Now, them facing off as enemies. That, I could see. But them as a couple? Bleh. Sam can do sooooo much better. Let me go ahead and…

RIP IT.

Sevro au Barca (Red Rising) & Inej Ghafa (Six of Crows)

Another interesting pair! Both characters can be ruthless killers and know how to get the job done. Although, I feel like Sevro would be a bit too…eccentric for Inej’s tastes. He’s such an odd little bean. That’s why he’s one of my favorites. This one’s hard. I can see them possibly becoming friends, if anything. But romantic partners? I’m going to have to say…

RIP IT.

Harry Potter (Harry Potter) & Darrow (Red Rising)

Yes, yes, I’ve picked quite a few Red Rising characters. But hey, I’m right in the middle of the third book. They’re on my mind. ANYWAY. Harry and Darrow. Well that’s…I need to say something besides interesting. BUT IT IS. So much so. They’re both great protagonists that unwillingly get thrust into leadership roles at some point. They could bond over essentially having everything revolve around them, but not necessarily in a good way. I dig it. Or in other words, I…

SHIP IT.

Karen Murphy ( Dresden Files) & Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)

No. Just no. Karen’s such an amazingly badass woman. There’s no way she’d put up with Draco for even a second – she already has her hands full with one wizard as it is. Karen would verbally tear Draco apart in just a few words and Draco would be like “My father will hear about this!” And Karen would pull a Hermione and punch him in the face, if not worse. I’m going to…

RIP IT.

And that’s that! So many unique pairings! That was bunches of fun. I’ll definitely have to do more tags like this in the future. If you found this tag amusing, DO IT. And let me know!

Happy reading! :)

WWW Wednesdays #68 – February 13th

WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly bookish meme formally hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm, and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. This meme consists of answering the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

For now, I will be participating monthly instead of weekly.


What am I currently reading?

32075671Currently I am reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This is my book club’s February read. I’m only a couple chapters in, so I need to get my butt in gear and read some more since our meeting is next week. I’m enjoying it so far and am really interested to see where it goes, since quite a bit has happened already. I’m also debating about watching the movie after reading it to see how they did.


What did I recently finish reading?

18966819

I finished reading Red Rising by Pierce Brown and quickly jumped into the second book in the series, Golden Son. Red Rising was a fantastic beginning to this series. I admit I personally had to get through the first part to start really getting into the book, and it took me a bit to get used to Brown’s writing style, but once I did I couldn’t put it down. We had a great discussion about the book during our meeting last month and I couldn’t wait to continue this series. I ended reading Golden Son fairly quickly as well. I enjoyed both books immensely. I was leaning toward the first one a little more, but once I got to the end of the second it completely blew my mind. I’m still processing it and it’s been two weeks. I cannot wait to see what happens in the third book. And I also heard that they’re in the very early stages of making this series into a TV show. I always have mixed feelings about this – I think how it turns out really depends Image result for halfway to the graveon who is going to produce it. I also ended up reading Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost, the first book in the Night Huntress series. I put this book on the Books I’d Like to Read in 2019 post I did last month. It’s one that has been on my TBR list for quite some time now. I ended up giving it 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it for the most part, but I found this main character, Cat, just a bit too…meh, I guess. I think it was because she was still fairly young and that influenced her way of thinking quite a bit. And I know her upbringing in the book had influence on her as well, so I tried to be understanding, but it still was annoying at times. I still liked her, but I wanted to like her more. I’m hoping she’ll develop nicely throughout the series. I really liked Bones, and the ending to the first book peaked my interest to where I am looking forward to reading the second book. But I have a few other series I’m interested before returning to this one.


What do I think I’ll read next?

18966806Next up I plan on reading Morning Star by Pierce Brown, the third book in the Red Rising Saga. Although I’m still processing the second book, I NEED TO KNOW what happens in the third. I almost jumped into it right after Golden Son, but I knew I should try to get my book club book read first. I can’t wait! I also still plan on reading the fourth and final book in the Tales From Verania series by T.J. Klune, A Wish Upon the Stars. I’ll probably read it once I finish up Morning Star. I’m hoping to get to  Crooked Kingdom in the near future as well.


What are you currently reading? Have you read any of the books above? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading! :)
