You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag
Hey guys! I found this tag through my perusing on the book-o-sphere (otherwise known as Google) and I decided it sounded like fun. The original creators of this tag are ReadLikeWildfire and Beccathebookreviewer.
Basically what you do is you write 30 fictional character names on to slips of paper then mix them up in a hat or jar or whatever. For each of the 15 questions, you pick two names and decide which of those characters would be the best answer and which one is “not good enough.” That may sound a little confusing, but I promise you’ll get it once we get started. So here we go!
- You only have one more spot on your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?
President Snow (Hunger Games) OR Mather (Snow Like Ashes)
Wow, we’re sure off to a great start, aren’t we?
I hate to say this, but I think I’m going to have to go with President Snow on this one. Don’t get me wrong, I dislike the guy as much as the next person, but he grew up in the Capitol, which as a utopia, probably has some pretty good schools. Mather, on the other hand, spent most of his life as a refugee, and had no real schooling other than combat training. I can’t imagine his spelling skills are all that great.
- Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?
Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson) OR Bella Swan (Twilight)
This one was an obvious choice for me. I’d hate to do it, but Annabeth is definitely the scarier of the two, and if she came after me, I would definitely die. I’d have to choose to kill her first.
- You’re on the bachelor/bachelorette and you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose to?
June Iparis (Legend trilogy) OR Angra (Snow Like Ashes)
I guess I’d have to go with June for this one. I mean, the other option is a genocidal psychopath. So… yeah, I’ll pass. June can have the rose, if only because I want Angra far, far away from me. Plus, June’s cool. I think I’d like hanging out with her, but as friends.
- You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?
Taravangian (Stormlight Archive) OR David Charleston (The Reckoners)
Obviously David would. He’s loyal and brave (and possibly stupid) like that. Taravangian is just a terrible human, and he’s way too calculating and manipulative to ever do something that reckless.
- You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?
Four/Tobias Eaton (Divergent) OR Eliza Mirk (Eliza and Her Monsters)
This one is a hard one! Ugh… To be honest, I like Eliza more, and I think she and I would get along better than Four and I would, but on the other hand, I’m pretty sure Four would be much better at survival than either me or Eliza. I mean, he’s Dauntless for a reason, right?
Ugh… I guess Eliza? I really don’t want to sacrifice either of them, but I think Four would be more useful than Eliza in the long run… Gah, that sounds terrible. Let’s move on.
- You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own TV show of course), who is your sidekick?
Prince Aleksandar (Leviathan) OR Grover Underwood (Percy Jackson)
Grover, hands down. I like Alek, but sometimes he can act a little high and mighty for me, and I don’t think he would take kindly to being a sidekick. Grover, on the other hand, is already used to being Percy’s sidekick, plus he’s a really good friend and has some pretty cool nature powers.
- You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?
Szeth (Stormlight Archive) OR Queen Katharine (Three Dark Crowns)
I don’t know, both of these characters have spent an awful lot of time by themselves… However, I think I’d have to fire Szeth. I just don’t think he’d be good with the whole communication thing, and I definitely don’t think he would like having to do it. I mean, he creeps out people in the books sometimes with the way he speaks; I have to imagine that would still happen in real life. There’s also the fact that he’s got so much trauma from everything he’s gone through…. He’s just not a great people person.
- You’ve just finished a book in which your favorite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?
Percy Jackson (PJO, Heroes of Olympus) OR Joel Saxon (The Rithmatist)
Honestly, I think both of them would comfort me. I think Percy would probably be better at it, though. He’d just crack some silly joke or something to make me smile. Joel is a little more socially inept than Percy.
- Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?
Eugene Fitzherbert/Flynn Rider (Tangled) OR Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles)
The answer is without a doubt Flynn. I mean, come on. I don’t think Cinder would even want to be in the popular clique, but Flynn would, and he would be really good at getting there.
- The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?
Thorne (The Lunar Chronicles) OR Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
Thorne. The thing is, though, I feel like with him, it would be less him actually forgetting my birthday and more likely him pretending to forget just to get on my nerves.
- You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?
Nova (Renegades) OR Shallan Davar (Stormlight Archive)
I’d have to say Shallan. Honestly, I don’t think either of them would want to put themselves out there in that way, but Shallan likes books more than Nova does, and Nova is way too much of an under-the-radar kind of person to ever even think about doing something like starting a booktube channel.
12. Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?
Teren Santoro (The Young Elites) OR Elend Venture (Mistborn)
Elend. Teren is way too creepy. Plus, Elend and I can talk about books. However, I think I would prefer to just hang out with him at a bookstore or a library, rather than having him over for a sleepover.
- Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?
Vin (Mistborn) OR Mizzy (The Reckoners)
Um, I guess Vin, so that then the baby can maybe be an Allomancer. I don’t really know how that would work, though…
- You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?
Jason Grace (Heroes of Olympus) OR Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl)
100% Artemis. I think Jason’s just too nice to do that sort of thing.
- You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mom’s been replaced by… who?!
Tiana (The Princess and the Frog) OR Kaladin (Stormlight Archive)
I definitely have to go with Tiana for this one. I feel like she would be such a cool mom, and she’s a freaking fantastic cook, so that would probably be the best breakfast I’d ever had.
Well guys, that’s all the questions. This was fun. Let me know if you want me to do something like this again, or give me suggestions down in the comments for more tag ideas I can do in the future.
I’m not going to tag anyone because I don’t really know anyone to tag. Thanks for reading! See you next week.
