This tag called to me as soon as I saw it the first time. Captain America is my favorite of the Avengers, in part because Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier is my favorite Marvel character and he’s in all of Cap’s movies. Regardless, I knew I had to do this tag ASAP. This tag was originally created by Morgan at Gone With The Words. I also owe credit to her for the tag graphic above.
This post is very image heavy because this is my absolute favorite fandom and I couldn’t help myself. You’ve been warned. This might be the longest I’ve ever spent working on a post.
Steve Rogers/Captain America: a book with a big character transformation
Calaena’s transformation into Aelin over the course of the Throne of Glass series is incredible. I still need to read Queen of Shadows and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Peggy Carter: a book with a strong female protagonist
Vin from the Mistborn trilogy is the most badass of badass female characters. She’s fierce, smart, and unapologetic and I love that about her.
Bucky Barnes: a book with your ultimate BROTP
I absolutely love Kell and Rhy’s relationship in A Darker Shade of Magic. They are actual brothers, but they’re also each other’s best friend. I still need to pick up the second book in the series, but I’ve read ADSOM twice already and it gets better every time. Check out the playlist I made for the book here.
Howling Commandos: a book with squad goals
I’ve only read Cinder and Scarlett so far, but the cast of characters in The Lunar Chronicles gets better with each book.
Red Skull: a book with a cliche plot
Twilight! There is instalove, the “plain” girl who falls for the mysterious gorgeous boy, a love triangle, and so many more. To be fair this book is old enough that it’s practically the origin for a lot of these cliched tropes.
Natasha Romanoff: a book with a snarky side character
Harry Potter is crammed full of amazing sarcastic, hilarious characters. All of the Weasleys have snark down to an art, but Fred and George are the kings.
Sam Wilson: a book with a friendship meet cute.
In Roomies, Elizabeth and Lauren become friends through emails after they find out they will be roommates when they start college in the fall.
Winter Soldier: a book with a great twist (plot twist or retelling)
The Eye of Minds is kind of like a Ready Player One for the YA crowd. It follows three teen hackers who spend their days in a virtual reality world. has so many twists and turns and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
I’m Just A Kid from Brooklyn: a book with a memorable setting/character backstory
I picked up Ashfall because it becomes in the town where I live. It takes place during and in the aftermath of the fictional eruption of the supervolcano under Yellowstone. It’s fascinating dystopian world and this series has stuck with me because there’s a real possibility that the volcano could erupt during our lifetime.
Do You Two…. Fondue?: a book with a love triangle
I LOVE This Song Is (Not) for You. I don’t think I’d exactly classify it as a love triangle based on the ending (which I loved), but it’s a really great book regardless. And it has an asexual character!
You’ve Been Asleep, Cap: a book you love with a dual timeline/time travel
The Time Traveler’s Wife has a dual timeline and deals with time travel. I read this book a long time ago and it’s still one of my favorites. I need to check out more from this author
Til The End Of The Line: a book with the OTP to end all OTPs
Feyre and Rhysand in A Court of Mist and Fury are my ultimate book OTP right now. He was my favorite character in ACOTAR so I was really excited when he got a bigger role in the second book.
I Had A Date: a book with a cliffhanger
Thankfully I was really late jumping on the Hunger Games bandwagon, so when I finished Catching Fire I already had Mockingjay in my possession to continue on immediately.
I Understood That Reference: a book with a pop culture reference
My cousin read My Kind of Crazy before me, and multiple times while he was reading, he’d crack up at a pop culture reference that he knew I’d totally love. There’s a nod to 5SOS and a jab at DC Comics, both of which I really appreciated.
This post took me SO LONG to format RIP.
Like always, consider yourself tagged if this sounds like a fun one to you 🙂
