1. Michael Scott – Book that tried WAY too hard:
I had to go with Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke, I gave it 1.5/5 stars. You can read more of my thoughts on it here.
2. Dwight Schrute – Book that ended up being a lot more complex than you thought it would be.
Fairest by Marissa Meyer. I chose this one because of how well-written Levana was in it.
Marissa Meyer really knows how to create memorable characters. (And Levana still frightens me with her twisted thoughts.)
3. Jim Halpert – YOU in a book. Book/character that you related to a ton.
Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It actually scared me how similar our actions were; everything Cath thought or did was something I’ve thought or done before. I think it goes without saying that Fangirl is one of my all-time favorite novels, and I can’t wait to reread it for the 20th time.
4. Pam Beesly – Seriously underrated but amazing book you wish everyone would read!
For this I had to go with A Tyranny of Petticoats by Jessica Spotswood. This came out in March 2016 and has some of my favorite short stories in it. This anthology contains 15 short stories written by today’s most talented writers of young adult literature. My full review can be found here.
5. Ryan Howard – THE INTERN. Debut novel that impressed you.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton. I read this beautiful novel earlier this year and have not stopped thinking about it. Easily added to my all-time favorites.
6. Andy Bernard – ANNOYING book/character that you can’t help but love (or not).
For this I had to go with Sorry Eva from Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys.
“Some in our group called her Sorry Eva because she often said appalling things, but inserted the word sorry before or after, as if to soften the sting.”
It’s been a few months since I finished it, but her character in particular has stuck with me. My full review can be found here.
7. Robert California – Book/character/plot that went over your head or was really confusing.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I can’t recall much from the tale because it’s been a few years, but I’ll never forget the feeling of confusion page after page. I remember reaching the end and thinking, “What just happened?”
8. Angela Martin – Book with a plot that didn’t appeal to you at first but you ended up loving!
Definitely the very first book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I was so hesitant with picking this up, but I’m really glad that I did. The first two books in the series still remain my favorites from the current four published.
9. Kelly Kapoor – Favorite sassy character.
Captain Carswell Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles. He’s one of my favorite guys in the series. There was never a time when he didn’t manage to make me laugh with his remarks, especially in the last story of Stars Above.
10. Kevin Malone – Book that features music.
Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. One of the greatest things about this book were the songs and pictures included within! I can’t wait for Matson’s new novel The Unexpected Everything to come out.
11. Phyllis Lapin – Book that made you feel warm and fuzzy.
The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh because the romance between the two main
characters was swoon worthy. My full thoughts on it here.
12. Oscar Martinez – Book that has an awesome LGBT character that defies stereotypes.
Ronan from The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. This series is on my all-time favorites list. If you want to read me gushing about it, here’s my full review.
13. Stanley Hudson – Character/book that DGAF!
I had to go with Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo because it’s honestly
inspiring how much he DGAF. I can’t wait to visit this world again in the sequel.
14. Meredith Palmer – Book you couldn’t stomach (too graphic/violent/romantic/vulgar – or whatever your reason!)
For this I had to go with 2 books-
The first being: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover because it was too everything for me (mostly dramatic).
And the second being: Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley. I decided to DNF this book after about 100 pages because I got sick to my stomach by the whole birds situation.
15. Creed Bratton – Book/series that only ever made you ask more questions.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. Suffice it to say that I did not continue on with the series after this one.
Those were all the questions for The Office Book Tag.
