Hello and Welcome to Book Tag Thursday, this week I thought I’d base the book tag around Royalty because I’m taking part in TheRoyalReadathon. I’ve chosen to use the The Royal Court Book Tag created by Crazy4Books on Amino
Without further ado, here’s the tag:
- Kingdom: Every Court Needs a Kingdom – What Fictional World Would You Rule Over?
The obvious answer especially for me would be Hogwarts. Except Hogwarts doesn’t really have a ruler and I damn sure don’t want to be the Minister for Magic. So, I suppose I’d like to rule Wonderland. I recently read Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Caroll and Heartless – Marissa Meyer and I did love the world. I liked how crazy everything was and how nothing as as you expected. I reckon that would be an interesting place to rule.
- Consort: Life At The Top Can Get Lonely – Pick Your Partner in Crime/ Book Crush
I have so many, and I have to admit not a lot of them would make great rulers at my side. The first one that sprang to mind was Daemon Black from Obsidian but that would just end in complete scandal. Cardan Greenbriar, I mean he’s got experience in ruling but after being king would he want to be a consort? This is a difficult question. Seth from Moxie? He’d be such a sweet king. I think I’ll have to pick Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments. He’s cool and sarcastic and I love him enough that I’ll overlook anything bad he does.
Heir: Someone Needs to Keep Your Legacy Going – Pick a Royal Character Who Deserves to Rule After You
Without a doubt, Jude from The Cruel Prince. She’s smart, she’s badass and I think she’ll make a great queen.
Royal Guard: Being a Ruler Comes With Many Dangers – Pick a Character You Trust To Have Your Back
Again, this one wasn’t hard. Celaena Sardothian. I’ve only read the first book in The Throne of Glass Series. But I definitely wouldn’t mess with her. She’d 100% cut a bitch.
Adviser: Its Nice to Have Someone to Blame When Things Go Wrong – Pick a Character Who Usually Has Great Advice
– This one might be slightly controversial. But I would have to pick Dumbledore. He’s such a smart person. People can bitch about his morals and how he basically raised Harry as a lamb for the slaughter all they want but Dumbledore was still a smart smart man and usually gave great advice.
Spy Master/Assassin: You Have to Set an Example – Pick a Character Who Would Destroy Your Enemies
Daemon Black from Obsidian. He’d protect me.
Court Magician: When Brutal Force Doesn’t Work, Magic is the Answer – Pick a Character With Useful Powers
Useful powers? Useful Powers? I’ve got it. MAGNUS BANE! High Warlock of Brooklyn! Hello. Obviously.
Diplomats: You Need Someone to Make Favourable Trade Deals, or Perhaps Prevent a War – Pick a Character Who’s Great At Manipulating Others
Part of me wants to say Jude again because she’s a master manipulater, but I suppose I’ll go with Binti from Binti – Nnedi Okorafor. Binti literally stops a war from happening in the first book. She’d be a great addition to my court.
General: Sometimes War Is Inevitable – Pick a Strategic Character to Defend Your Kingdom And Lead Your Army
Alec Lightwood. This is not a request. This is not up for debate. I need Alec to lead my army.
Stable Master: All Life Must Flourish In Your Kingdom – Pick an Animal Companion
The White Rabbit? He’s already in Wonderland so why not? I think he’d be awesome. If not a little cowardly.
Court Jester: Life As a Ruler Can Get Stressful -Pick a Book/Character That Made You Laugh
I’d want Alex and Henry from Red, White and Royal Blue to amuse me with their banter and their insults. If not them, I’d have to say Jest from Heartless. The original court jester. I can’t promise I won’t fall in love with him though.
Usurper: There Will Always Be Someone After The Throne – Pick a Villain Who Would Make a Worthy Opponent
Madoc from The Cruel Prince? Valentine from The Mortal Instruments? Prince Dain from The Cruel Prince, sneaky little bastard? Either of them would work.
Nobles: The Courts Life Blood – Who Do You Tag?
Everyone, everyone that reads this post. Who would be in your court?
